Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Finally gave into my netbook lust and got an Eee PC. (It’s for my better half, of course. Ahem.) But since it’s not the most minimalist browser on the market, I had to modify Firefox to trim down extra UI bits and make it more netbook-friendly. Over at Lifehacker this morning, I published my full list of userChrome.css tweaks that maximize Firefox 3.5’s viewing area on netbooks. (adsbygoogle...

My SXSW Interactive Panel Proposal and Picks

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Voting for SXSW Interactive panel proposals closes end-of-day tomorrow, and your little green thumbs-up counts for 30% of a panel’s chance of actually happening. Here’s the panel I proposed, the one I’ll be on (if it’s voted through), and others I’ve voted for. My panel proposal: How’d They DO That? Secrets of Web Superstars –a thinly-veiled excuse to interview my online idols...

August Recap at Harvard Business: Whiteboards, Business Cards, Google and Bookmarks

August Recap at Harvard Business: Whiteboards, Business Cards, Google and Bookmarks

Been wearing my virtual business suit over at the Work Smarter blog at Harvard Business Online, but been remiss in posting my articles here. Here’s a recap of what I covered during August: Instantly Transcribe a Whiteboard with Your Cameraphone — using Evernote and Qipit Forget the Business Card. Just Google Me — meant this post a bit more tongue-in-cheek than most commenters took it, but still a strong believer in the importance of your name Google-ability Should Your...

TWiG Tip: Click To: to Launch Gmail’s Contact Chooser

TWiG Tip: Click To: to Launch Gmail’s Contact Chooser

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. This week Gmail engineers added a richer contact interface for filling in the To:, Cc:, and Bcc: fields when you’re composing a new email message. While address auto-completion has been available for some time now, the new Contact Chooser lets you check multiple recipients off a list. Click on the To:, Cc:,...

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Android users with Facebook friends who list their phone number in their profiles will love this: Brad Fitzpatrick offers a Greasemonkey script that exports those phone numbers to AddressBookr and offers to add/merge them into your Google Contacts. Even though this was posted last November, I just gave it a test run and it worked like a charm. Thanks, Nick!

TWiG Tip: Icon-only, Perma-Tabs for Gmail and Google Reader

TWiG Tip: Icon-only, Perma-Tabs for Gmail and Google Reader

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. You use Firefox, you keep Gmail and Google Reader open at all times, and you wish they didn’t take up so much space in the tab bar. (Maybe you’re on a netbook, or maybe you’ve always got a dozen tabs open at once, so real estate is scarce.) You can permanently affix the Gmail and Reader tabs in...

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Been hacking away at a personal programming project, tentatively named Twitalytic, a web application that archives your tweets and mentions and gives you useful data about your friends and followers on Twitter. (Here’s some background on why the heck I’d ever want to archive the ephemeral chatter that is on the Twitter.) Anyway, after a few months I’ve collected a teensy bit of data, so I wanted to make sharing replies to my lazyweb tweets easier. To that end, today I...

Google Tip: Navigate Items with J and K in Reader, Gmail and Search

Google Tip: Navigate Items with J and K in Reader, Gmail and Search

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. The J and K keys navigate through lists of items in Gmail, Google Reader, and even Google search results–without getting the mouse involved, which saves you point-and-click time. J goes to the next item down the list, and K the previous. J and K aren’t easy for your brain to remember, but they are for...

“It’s Not As Bad As You Might Think”

“It’s Not As Bad As You Might Think”

Like Bing, this might be the most passionate thing we can say about Windows 7. (For the record, I’m looking forward to upgrading to Win7. However, just putting Vista’s sins behind us is indeed a low bar.)

Gmail Adds Custom SMTP Servers, Drops “On Behalf Of”

Gmail Adds Custom SMTP Servers, Drops “On Behalf Of”

Used to be that when you sent Gmail messages with a custom from address, there would be an “On behalf of you@gmail.com” bit added to the headers of the message because you were using Gmail’s outgoing SMTP server. It didn’t show up in all email clients, but those using Microsoft Outlook did see it, and it made your email look a little more janky than it had to. Happily, today Gmail is scrapping the “on behalf of” business and letting you associate custom...
