Adblock Plus

Ever been annoyed by all those ads and banners on the internet that often take longer to download than everything else on the page? Install Adblock Plus now and get rid of them.

Right-click on a banner and choose "Adblock" from the context menu - the banner won't be downloaded again. Maybe even replace parts of the banner address with star symbols to block similar banners as well. Or you select a filter subscription when Adblock Plus starts up the first time, then even this simple task will usually be unnecessary: the filter subscription will block most advertisements fully automatically.

NEW: To view zoomed image press right mouse button and hold it for a moment. (Note: For zoom feature to begin working you have to refresh a thumbnail, because older versions of FD didn't generate large images.)

Context menu "Add to Fast Dial":

- Similarly you can click on some link to add it
- If you right-click on some image, you can assign it as a "Custom image" using this menu

FlashGot 0.8.3

Download one link, selected links or all the links of a page together at the maximum speed with a single click, using the most popular, lightweight and reliable external download managers. Supported download tools are dozens, see [url][/url] for details.

Inserts preview images (thumbnails) of web sites and Amazon products into the Google and Yahoo search results pages. When you use GooglePreview and click on an Amazon link within the search results, you support me and the further development of the extension and back end if you actually purchase a product. The GooglePreview thumbnail system currently consists of 5 dedicated servers and generates 4.5 TB of traffic per month.


Interclue 1.5.2

Interclue tooltip windows display content previews, useful extra information and relevant next actions for almost any link on the web. A truly user-centric design, "Clueview" tooltips show you only the most relevant content from linked pages, and can provide embedded viewing for images, mp3s and YouTube videos.

Interclue is the ultimate link augmentation multitool. Our goal is to provide you with excellent previews, useful extra information and relevant next actions for almost any given link on any given page.

However, Interclue tries just as hard to stay out of your way when it's not needed. For instance, Interclue usually won't show clues on internal site navigation (eg tagclouds, drop down menus, etc), because such links tend to be closely packed and tooltips will often just get in the way without really adding much value.

Here are some sites that Interclue works really well on: Most search engines, and local site searches. Google Reader. Bloglines. gMail., Digg, other social bookmarking sites. Bugzilla and Trac ticketing systems. Most news sites. Almost any given blog. If you're a knowledge worker, don't forget to try it on your intranet (Interclue does all of its page summarization work inside the browser, so there is no security risk involved in using it on your intranet - although you may need to turn it on from the status bar, Interclue is turned off by default on all https sites)

Interclue provides page summary text in any language, and we have many positive reviews from non-english blogs and newspapers, but we haven't yet translated the options and tutorials. We will be working on this soon.

Interclue is fast, smooth, and easy to use. It launches a 2 minute tutorial on install, after that it starts *saving* you time.

* Stop PDF files crashing your browser

Save Complete 0.9b7

Saves a webpage completely, providing a better alternative to the flawed built-in save functionality of Firefox.

As more and more sites use CSS, Firefox's built-in complete save becomes increasingly less effective, as it doesn't support stylesheets.

Article Submitter Pro 2.3

Do you spend all of your time going to article directories to submit your content? Are you frustrated by sites rejecting your content because it's not formatted using their specific, confusing rules? Article Submitter could be the solution you need

Save time by submitting properly formatted content to over 640 article directories using Article Submitter. Our tool offers semi-automatic submission to the most current list of article directories, allowing you focus on writing content, not submitting it.
◊ One of the best ways to market your website is to write articles and submit them to various websites and article directories. These articles can bring a lot of traffic to your website, if written in an informative or entertaining manner. The article submission process (posting your articles to article directories) is definitely a laborious and time consuming task. Article Submitter simplifies the article submission process to save you time.
With the growing number of article directories, you can easily spend more time editing your original article (to post unique versions to each directory for the best effect) and filling out article directory forms than you spend actually writing your article. Our software automates article submission process for you.
Article Submitter can do all of the manual and monotonous jobs for you. With a click of a button it can submit your article to more than 640 article directories in a matter of hours. It’s as simple as that. With this software you can focus more on your core task: writing articles.

◊ Always have an up-to-date list of article directories
◊ Save time by automating all phases of submission
◊ Lets you focus on writing content rather than submitting it

You won't even have to get on the Web, submissions are all automatically done in the background, while you get back to the work of writing additional articles.
Many article directories have guidelines that must be met before they accept your content. Some are hard to understand and some even conflict with others. With Article Submitter, you won't have to worry about any of this. Conversions are handled automatically.
There are many article directories on the Web with more created every day. Keeping track of all of them is more than one person can handle. Article Submitter takes care of this for you. It automatically updates its list of directories.
It could take days, or even weeks, to go to all of the directories and submit your content by hand. With the Article Submitter software, you can get it done in hours. The automated process doesn't even require your attention once you start the submission process.
With all of the time and frustration you will save using Article Submitter, you can get down to your real goal of writing new content. The more time you save, the more content you can create and the more article marketing benefits you will receive.

google chrome report by rowan simpson

When I was in San Francisco earlier this year I caught up with Ben Goodger, who I first me when he was in Wellington to speak at Webstock. He kindly took some time to show me around Mountain View and we had a nice Mexican lunch at one of his regular hang-outs.
We talked about lots of things, but exactly what he was working on wasn’t one of them.
He said he wasn’t working on Firefox any more. And, I saw that he was running Visual Studio in a VM on his Mac.
But, I didn’t press him beyond that as he was obviously reluctant to say much at that point.
Today we all find out: Google Chrome
Even before it was officially announced there was a lot of buzz about this. There is already a decent Wikipedia page with a good summary of the various features that are included in this initial release.
Here are my thoughts about this:
The rise and rise of WebKit
The number and variety of browsers that web developers need to consider has grown considerably in the last couple of years - IE7 has become the most widely used browser, although there are still plenty of people using IE6, Firefox has been steadily ticking up, and Safari has doubled (albeit from a very low base) probably on the back of people switching to OS X. IE8 is on the horizon. And, now this.
These are the most recent browser stats I have from Trade Me (from July 2008):
BrowserMarket Share
IE 754.2%
IE 623.1%
Firefox 215.6%
Firefox 30.9%
All Others2.9%
Those sites that don’t take Safari seriously at its current level may need to re-evaulate on the back of this announcement, as Google Chrome is based on the same WebKit foundation as used by Safari (and the iPhone).
Steve Job’s decision to open-source WebKit in 2005 is looking smarter and smarter.
Who said the browser wars were over?
Splendid Isolation
The Google engineers have made a big deal in this annoucement about each tab having its own isolated process and memory space and the performance benefits that will come from this design - most notably when one tab dies it won’t take the whole browser down with it.
It’s true that this is one of the big weaknesses of Firefox, especially when it’s running on an OS that doesn’t need to be re-booted too often. :-)
But, I wonder if in time the isolation under the hood won’t pale in comparison to the isolation options presented to users.
By selecting the document options (immediately to the right of the address baromni bar in Chrome) and choosing “Create application shortcut” from the menu you can quickly and effortlessly create a single instance browser for your favourite web applications.
Over the last couple of months I’ve been experimenting with something similar using Fluid on OS X (another browser which uses WebKit).
I have created separate applications for many of the web apps I use the most: Google Reader, Google Docs, Xero, WordPress, etc.
I’ve found various reasons for doing this…
Because each site is running in a separate app I have far fewer problems with the browser leaking memory or crashing. I also don’t tend to leave Firefox running for days on end as much as I used to, as most of the sites I tend to leave open are elsewhere.
Performance is another. Apps which use a lot of Javascript like Xero seem to run much faster on Fluid than in Firefox. The Javascript environment in Chrome, which they are calling V8, promises to be even faster still.
Fluid also lets you customise each application - with a nice icon (which shows in the dock - allowing you to navigate directly to the site), user scripts (using GreaseKit) and other options, such as whether to display the address bar, which URLs are allowed etc.
For example, with Nik from Code To Customer I created a Xero application with a high-resolution icon and a simple script which shows the count of unreconciled transactions on the dock when the app is running. This now feels much more like a native OS X app.
If you’re a Xero and Mac user and you’d like to try this out: download the application and user script (the script needs to be installed manually once you’ve run the app - start with Command-Alt-N and follow your nose). I’d be interested to hear what you think of it.
Google Chrome seems to just use the favicon, which looks pretty ugly. Perhaps they could support an alternative link in the header to a higher resolution icon to use in this case?
I’ve even created a Fluid app for the web-based control panel on my home NAS, which broke horribly when I upgraded to Firefox 3.
In Firefox…
In Fluid…
Why are single instance applications important?
Lots of non-technical users don’t differentiate between their browser and the sites they visit in the browser. To them the “blue e” is the internet and Google is the new http://.
How else do you explain the popularity of sites like YahooXtra and MSN NZ, other than that people don’t realise that they can change the default home page on their browser?
For those of you who run your own site, look at your referral logs and notice how many people type your URL into a search engine. If they had a good mental model of their browser wouldn’t it make more sense to use the address bar?
My prediction… look out for icons for all of the different Google apps on a desktop near you soon (or dock if you’re one of the cool kids).
And, if you have your own site, you should be thinking about how to package it into an application.
A little bit of personality goes a long way
I’ve linked to a number of great cartoonists here, including Hugh McLeod,Jessica Hagy, xkcd, Scott Adams, HowToons, and Savage Chickens.
Add Scott McCloud to that list (see:
The cartoon book they have put together to announce the launch and describe some of the design decisions behind Chrome is really well done and well worth a read if you haven’t already taken the time.
Perhaps this is what all technical documentation should look like?
Is there anybody in New Zealand who can do this sort of thing? If so I’d like to talk to them.
Using the engineers who built the browser as the characters is a nice touch too, and I’m sure a nice ego boost to those involved (many of the same people appear in person in this video)
They have also managed to strike a good balance with their user interface.
The blue background differentiates it from other apps and makes the tabs stand out.
They have definitely gone for the “less is more” approach, which is great.
“I have to admit, Google Chrome has one of the simplest — and the least attractive — UIs I’ve seen in a while. I didn’t realize how much I rather liked the color that the icons in most toolbars lend my apps until faced with the Spartan blue tagged interface that Chrome opens with.”
Here’s how the “chrome” part of the various browsers look in Windows Vista (via VMWare):
Internet Explorer 7…
Firefox 3…
When you see these side-by-side you realise how putting the tabs on top is a great design decision (although some credit should go to the Opera team for pioneering that approach).
Also, look out for the “stats for nerds” link on Task Manager :-)
Just because Google builds it doesn’t mean they will necessarily come.
Many of the problems it solves are not problems that many people know they have. Is it really 10x better for those people?
I remember web developers getting very excited when Firefox first launched. Finally a browser to replace Internet Explorer, we all thought.
While that may have been broadly achieved amongst technical types, it’s not true at all for the general population (see: We’re Not Normal).
Firefox 1.0 launched in January 2005 (a long time ago now, eh?) By August 2006 it had achieved just over 11% market share in NZ and, as per the numbers above, has since grown to around 16%. While this is a huge number of users it’s not really the predicted global domination.
I think it was Blake Ross (one of the other original Firefox guys) who said that he appreciated Internet Explorer, because how else would people download Firefox!
He was joking, obviously, but there is an element of reality in that statement.
You could probably argue that 16% is the proportion of general internet population who have ready access to a geek to upgrade their browser for them. Everybody else is blissfully unaware. :-)
What market share do you think Chrome will achieve?
And, how much of that will be at the expense of Firefox?
