How To Cast A Chrome App To Chromecast

Chrome lets you save websites as apps. The Chrome Web Store also features an entire Apps category. These apps run as stand alone Chrome windows. You can pin them to the Taskbar and the Start Menu in Windows for faster access but they come with some restrictions. A Chrome web app that runs in its own dedicated window doesn’t support the Chrome toolbar. You can’t use any of your installed extensions inside the app unless the extension can be used from the right-click context menu. The only other alternative is to run the app as a tab in Chrome but that more or less defeats the purpose of the app. With these restrictions, you can’t cast a Chrome app to the Chromecast using the official extension. The extension that resides in the toolbar can’t be accessed from the stand alone window interface. The good news is that as of Chrome version 51, native support for the Chromecast has been added making it possible for you to cast a Chrome app to your Chromecast. Here’s what you need to do.

Riverdale’s Cast Spills the Details on the Show’s Friendships, Rivalries and Dark Secrets [SDCC 2016]

ArchieArchie

Since it was announced, we’ve been keeping a close eye on Riverdale, the CW’s updated take on Archie comics. Different from the modernization of the characters over in the main series from creators like Mark Waid, Fiona Staples, Chip Zdarsky, Veronica Fish and Derek Charm, Riverdale is going for high drama with lots of stakes under the guidance of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. The characters you know and love from the books are all still there, but this Riverdale has a somber undercurrent, as the first season will play host to a murder mystery, secret romances, and tense friendships. The intrigue doesn’t stop there though, as the cast of the show can attest.

We caught up with KJ Apa (Archie), Cole Sprouse (Jughead), Lili Reinhart (Betty), Camila Mendes (Veronica), Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) and Ashleigh Murray (Josie) at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about Riverdale‘s first season, and what makes this version of America’s icon so fascinating.

Joss Whedon Black WidowMarvel

Since stepping away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Joss Whedon has been pretty upfront about how anxious and exhausted the entire experience left him. Even as recently as a few months ago, Whedon was still giving voice to the feelings of failure he had after Avengers: Age of Ultron opened to huge backlash from fans. With Marvel bringing in new talent behind the camera and thinking about the next phase for some of its most popular characters, it seemed the door had closed on Whedon and Marvel ever working again.
