okay google chromeGoogle Chrome announced that the beta version of the Chrome browser now supports completely hands free searching.

Just open a new tab and say "okay Google" and then speak your query.

This is being rolled out to English (U.S.) users on Windows, Mac and Linux over the next few days, according to Google.

Here is an animated GIF of how it works:

I just realized, that they also hacked my OS. Now my System tray shows icon "Chrome - Notifications". Pay attention - it shows not in browser, but in System tray of OS. Sure I wasn't asked, if I wanted to see it there. Google just hacked it into MY OS and that's it. There is option to switch it off - "Do not disturb", but there is no clearly visible option to remove it from System tray. So I have to waste time, searching for this option. But probably it's easier to just switch back to Firefox. Thank you Google for the voice search option and bibi )
