Is Firefox the new Internet Explorer for Mac users?

If you have been using Mac for as long as I have, you remember the days when they came with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer pre-installed. Even if it wasn’t installed, there was a time when it was available for download on the Mac. It was the must have-browser, even if you used a different one like […]

How to uninstall Adobe Acrobat Reader and open PDFs in your browser instead

Over the last few months, I’ve been aggressively pursuing ways to remove my dependence on 3rd-party plugins.

How to navigate the web with your keyboard and gleeBox

A fond farewell to vertical tabs in Google Chrome

Tabbed browsing is nothing new, but I’ve always felt that something wasn’t quite right with how tabs were displayed.

With computer displays getting wider and not taller, why were browsers cramming tabs into my precious vertical space? When […]

Write Blog Posts From Inside Your Browser with ScribeFire

That seems kind of obvious, doesn’t it? Blogging from insider your browser, I mean. That’s how most people do it — go to whatever blogging site they use, log in, and start typing. But that’s not necessarily the best way. And it’s not the most convenient, either, especially if you have more than one blog. […]

TweetDeck for Chrome is a Flexible, Lightweight Version of its Desktop Counterpart

TweetDeck Desktop is arguably one of the best desktop Twitter clients for power users. It offers endless columns of information, multiple account support, and many features that Twitter itself had to copy. This app can basically do it all, and might even be getting purchased for $50 million by Twitter. My only major complaint is […]
