When you live in your web browser most of the day, you are probably accustomed to managing numerous tabs. As you’re moving back and forth, getting your work on, it is inevitable that you will, at some point, accidentally close out an important browser tab.
There is a useful keyboard shortcut available to mitigate this annoying occurrence. Read more
In a world with Evernote, things like bookmarks may seem like a quaint throwback to computing times of yore, but many of us still find a place for them in our computing routine. Over enough time, collecting tens of hundreds of bookmarks could raise the specter of duplicates, and a major clean up may be justified.
Over the past few months, I’ve become convinced of the capabilities of mobile computing devices (i.e., smartphones, tablets) to effectively supplement, and in some cases, outright replace, the more traditional laptop experience. Now, I find myself in a place where I am using multiple devices running multiple operating systems.
Using Google services and a web browser like Chrome make this a very real and downright pleasurable experience because of the seamless nature of Google’s sync technology. One moment, I could be composing another article for this site, or researching a health issue for my Gramps, and the next, I could be waiting in line on a smartphone, or at a friend’s house on a tablet, perusing all the tabs I left open on my home computer.

These days, finances are tight for the majority of the population. Great deals can be had by shopping online, but it’s often unclear if you’ve put in the required time to thoroughly research the product and ensure you’ve found the best price.

Yet, there is at least one area of traditional browsing where Chrome falls short, i.e., bookmarks. The organizer is ugly and cumbersome, and it doesn’t seem to be as efficient or powerful as Firefox’s offering.
Chrome’s myriad other strengths more than makeup for this weaknesses, but if you’d like to make its bookmark organizer more palatable, give this extension a try. Read more
Modern versions of Google’s Chrome have a built-in viewer for displaying files encoded in the ubiquitous PDF file format. This means that when you click on a link to a PDF file, it will automatically open in the web browser.
While this is fine for most end users, it can be an annoying behavior for others. For example, I often need to modify PDF files before uploading them to web services like Evernote, and having to wait for a file to first display in the browser, then download it to my computer for modification, only to have to re-upload to Evernote is a pain.
If this is something you go through too often and you wish Chrome treated these files differently, there is a way to modify this behavior. Read more
