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.

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...

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...

Google Developing A Chrome Metro Version For Windows 8

The two user interfaces that Windows 8 ships with make it more time and development intensive for developers to provide a working version of their software for both interfaces.

TabMemFree, Unload Websites In Chrome To Free Up Resources

Websites that you have opened in tabs in your favorite browser use system resources as long as they are open. Some may even be active in the background.

Google Chrome Gets Click To Play

Google Chrome Gets Click To Play

Regular readers know that I consider the Firefox NoScript add-on invaluable for security and bandwidth preserving reasons. One of the lesser know features of the add-on is an option to activate scripts by clicking on them on the website they were initially blocked on. This very practical feature allows the user to load scripts easily on a web page without complications. The script blocking options in the Google Chrome browser on the other hand are still very limited, which can be attributed...
