The New Firefox Home Page

Mozilla plans to make a bunch of changes in the next two versions of the Firefox web browser, and users who are running either the beta or aurora version of the browser right now get a taste of those changes already.One of the changes is a new home page. Firefox users should not confuse this page with the homepage that they can set freely in the web browser though. The home page is displayed to new users who install Firefox for the first time on the system, when you enter about:home in...

Auto Refresh Select Tabs In The Firefox Web Browser

Have you ever been on a website where you waited for something to happen? Maybe it was on the Yahoo Mail website where you have been waiting for the registration confirmation email of a service that you just registered with, or you are on eBay waiting for the auction to end. If you are impatient, you may have tapped on the F5 key every few seconds to reload the page to see if anything has changed yet.That’s fine and doable if you are waiting for one page to reload with the information...

Modify The Appearance of Websites With Stylebot For Chrome

Modify The Appearance of Websites With Stylebot For Chrome

The first go-to services when it comes to modifying the appearance of websites are sites like userscripts.org or userstyles.org which hosts thousands of different scripts and styles that modify the appearance or functionality of sites on the Internet. But those sites are only helpful if they host a script or style that is offering the modification you are looking for. And while you likely find one for popular sites, you may come up empty handed in certain situations.That’s where the...

Google Chrome Reveals Extensions To Websites

Google Chrome Reveals Extensions To Websites

I may be old-fashioned in this regard but I prefer websites and companies to know as little about me as possible, unless the information are used for a service that I make active use of. I do not mind Amazon knowing that I’m an adult male, as this is blocking recommendations and offers aimed at a female audience on the site.Ideally, sites that I do not have an account with should know nothing about me. The Polish security researcher Krzysztof Kotowicz discovered a possibility to fingerprint...

Tranquility Improves The Readability Of Websites In Firefox

Tranquility Improves The Readability Of Websites In Firefox

Tranquility is definitely not the first add-on or bookmarklet that is improving the readability of websites in the Firefox web browser. We have covered quite a few apps that can do that for you, from Readable over Tidyread to the recently released Evernote Cleary extension. All tools work considerably well in the browser. They have in common that they turn a common web page into a compressed page that is displaying the article or post on the page, and barely any other page element. This...

Firefox Could Get H.264 Support After All

Firefox Could Get H.264 Support After All

Remember the HTMl5 video war from about a year ago? When browser manufacturers left and right claimed allegiance to H.264 or WebM? For the user, such moves can often be disastrous, anyone remembering the Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD uncertainty knows what I’m talking about. With HTML5 video it came down to Microsoft and Apple supporting H.264, and Mozilla, Google and Opera supporting WebM. Google furthermore had support for H.264 built into the browser, but promised to remove support completely...

Find Out What’s Currently Planned For Firefox 13

Find Out What’s Currently Planned For Firefox 13

Even though Mozilla would prefer users not to look at Firefox versions anymore, it is something that I like to keep track of to see what’s changing in the browser. It is easier to compare Firefox 12 to Firefox 13, than it is to compare Firefox released in February, with Firefox released in March. Why? Because you might end up comparing the same browser versions, and come up with zero changes or feature additions otherwise.Firefox 13 is currently being prepared to be moved to the Aurora...

The first is to configure the browser to load one, multiple or random, homepages on start, or when you open a new tab. Your second option is to load the previous browsing session when the browser starts.There is however no option to load websites on schedule, say once a week on a specific day, or even once a year. The extension Morning Coffee offers to open sites on a specific day...
