Whoever said that nobody likes a know-it-all likely wasn’t all that smart. There’s no shame in cramming your noodle full of as much data as humanly possible, and there’s a lot of joy to be found in thrashing an opponent Texas-style during an old school barroom trivia throw-down. But who has the time these days to tackle anything close to the amount of book learning required to become a Master or Intellectual Disaster? No one. Fortunately, Popular Science Magazine's Chrome Edition Web App is here to spoon-feed you all the cool factoids you’ll ever need to intellectually dominate/alienate your friends and loved ones.
Designed specifically for use with Google’s Chrome browser, the Popular Science Magazine Web App is a multimedia feast for the eyes and ears that’s sure to appeal to most anyone. Updated on a semi-regular basis, the application boasts Popular Science’s most fascinating content of the past year, augmenting it with interactive video and layered imaging, making for a great read that grabs you by the collar and won’t let go. Easily navigated using either your keyboard or a mouse, the app is well suited to users of all ages, no matter whether they prefer to use keyboard shortcuts or the simplicity of pointing and clicking.
There’s even an option to share the stories that you dig via Twitter Facebook, or email, making it a cinch to spread the word that you are indeed an individual who takes their scientific education seriously, and should not be trifled with.
Be sure to check back every Monday for another edition of Maximum PC’s Chrome Web App of the Week.
