If you’ve been waiting to get the next-gen Google Chrome browser with built-in cloud storage, you can now.
The software, dubbed MindMap, will be available in the Chrome browser on August 30th.
MindMap is the first Chrome-based browser to support the ability to “steal” data from other websites.
You can use MindMap to download files from third-party sites like Dropbox or Google Drive and then copy those files to a temporary storage location, such as on a USB drive.
If you’re in a pinch and have a few spare megabytes, you could also use Mindmap to copy files from the Chrome Web Store to your own storage.
You can also download MindMap directly from Google.
The browser also includes a “smart” bookmarklet, which automatically opens when you hover over the MindMap icon on the Chrome toolbar.
The bookmarklet is available for $5.99 in the Google Store, and you can get it for free.
Mindmap works with Chrome’s built-ins for storing, sharing, and accessing files.
You have the option to add more file types to MindMap: images, video, and music.
You could use MindMaps to keep track of which websites you visit on a regular basis, or to help organize your favorite news sites.
MindMap also has the ability for you to use MindMapping for other purposes, such a social network, email, or calendar.
In MindMap’s beta phase, we’ve already seen Google introduce a “social bookmarklet” that lets you automatically save your favorite social media accounts to MindMappings.
However, there are a few caveats.
For one, the MindMappers will remain stored on the device itself, and the Mind Mappers will only be saved when you access MindMap from the web, not when you launch the browser.
In addition, the browser will not allow you to save MindMaps to your external hard drive.
In the future, we’ll have to wait and see how MindMap is used.
In the meantime, the Google Chrome team is planning to offer MindMap in the upcoming Firefox browser.
