    SP2 Owners: Satisfied or Regret Upgrade to SP3

    i'm seriously considering selling my SP2 for a SP3... For those of you that traded up, does anyone know if there's an easy way to migrate the installation so i don't have to reinstall and reconfigure everything?

    Google Chrome Canary... now BEST Windows 8 Browser

    Yes, chrome must be set as the default browser for windows 8 mode to work. For chrome canary, you need to first modify the registry per the instructions before you can set canary as a default browser.

    Google Chrome Canary... now BEST Windows 8 Browser

    Canary in metro looks very sharp and clean, that problem I had with Firefox. Pinch zooming is also really smooth and quick, also really easy to pinch zoom-out back to 100% (doesn't zoom out further than that). I love the TouchMe gestures, but I'm really happy that Canary has that built in too...

    Google Chrome Canary... now BEST Windows 8 Browser

    Yea I was skeptical at first, but you can swipe down the bottom bar. It's also useful because it can still support multiple browser windows and not just tabs.

    Google Chrome Canary... now BEST Windows 8 Browser

    The gesture navigation forward and back is so simple but it makes me so happy that I can finally do that. I must have spent 10 minutes last night just doing that. My wife probably thought I was having a stroke.

    TouchMe Gesture Control Studio - Configure your own finger swipe gestures

    I know with Chrome Canary, doing a 2 finger "tip-tap" works natively, pretty much exactly like TouchMe. Sounds like with both TouchMe and Chrome responding the same way to a tip-tap, TouchMe might be sending the control command while Chrome itself is also switching tabs, causing this problem...

    General people don't know Surface from Surface Pro

    My iPad just sits collecting dust on my nightstand, my HP Touchpad is basically just a clock in my kitchen, but my SP2 is my everything.

    Google Chrome Canary... now BEST Windows 8 Browser

    Yea Chrome in the Modern UI was just plain awful, but the Canary release seems to fix all that. Just want to reiterate from the blog post that Canary now defaults to 64 bit, but the 64 bit installation isn't handling memory right and crashes if you scroll too fast. 32 bit Canary seems perfect...

    Google Chrome Canary... now BEST Windows 8 Browser

    Trying out blogging, so i wrote my own post about using the new Chrome Canary 32-bit as the default browser in Metro mode on my Surface Pro 2. I finally have the browser my Surface has been missing; windows 8 mode support, gestured navigation, extensions, etc. I hope you guys can find this...

    Tether Somehow! USB or Bluetooth

    i have an iphone 5 and I find that bluetooth tethering my SP2 constantly drops connection. Wifi personal hotspot works well, but it's just annoying to have to go into settings on my phone every time i want to connect.

    TouchMe Gesture Control Studio - Configure your own finger swipe gestures

    I figured it out. I think malwarebytes was blocking some access to that for some reason. I just disabled it. Thanks though!
