Google Encrypted Web Search (HTTPS) Moved To New Domain

Google Encrypted Web Search (HTTPS) Moved To New Domain

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Google launched an encrypted version of their web search in May (see Google SSL HTTPS Search). HTTPS search was enabled on the main Google.com domain and users simply had to add an s after HTTP in the url to access the encrypted search engine. Encryption increased the privacy of the search engine user by preventing people from intercepting the search terms and results. This did have a consequence though for schools and organizations...

Uninstall The Search Helper Extension In Firefox

Uninstall The Search Helper Extension In Firefox

Windows users who take a look at the installed extensions in Firefox might notice a Search Helper Extension in the listing that can only be disabled but not uninstalled. It is safe to assume that most Firefox users have no clue how that extension got there, especially since the extension cannot be installed manually in the web browser. The Search Helper Extension gets added to the Firefox web browser in two ways, well, two ways that we know of, there might be more. The extension gets installed...

Android Tip: Swipe Up to Extend the Keyboard

Android Tip: Swipe Up to Extend the Keyboard

Commenter seguetonowhere points out a useful Android keyboard feature I missed in my original Froyo rundown: if you swipe your finger over the top of the Android 2.2 default keyboard, it will extend two more rows out and show you keys for common punctuation and numbers. Click on the thumbnail to see the expanded keyboard. This is a faster way to punctuate and/or add numbers than tapping the ?123 key or tap-and-holding the period key. However, as seguetonowhere points out, parentheses...

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This week’s episode of TWiG featured Jeff Jarvis Skyping over 3G from a moving car on a NJ highway, Brad Stone from the NY Times who was a total trooper during our criticism of the Times’ takedown of the Pulse iPhone RSS reader, and Om Malik of Gigaom, a very smart teddy bear who I’d like to hug. My tip this week: the new Gmail Labs’ Maps Preview, which embeds a Google Map into any email that has a U.S. address in it. Continua a leggere – Original Link:...

How To Change The Firefox Address Bar Search Provider

How To Change The Firefox Address Bar Search Provider

The default address bar search engine in the Firefox web browser is Google Search. This means that any search phrase that the user enters directly into the Firefox address bar gets send to Google Search which returns either a direct hit or a search results page. Some Internet users might prefer to have a different search engine as the default in Firefox. This can be done easily in the configuration of Firefox. To do that type about:config in the Firefox address bar. First time users need...

Get a FREE guide to Windows 7 Search

Microsoft have made great strides in making the search and organise features in Windows 7 easier to use than ever before but despite the best efforts of Microsoft to make search in Windows 7 as easy and as intuitive as possible the use, a great many people still find some aspects of using search, especially some of the more advanced search options, frustrating. Last year I published “The Windows 7 Power Users Guide”, a complete and comprehensive guide for everyone on how to...

Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Updated

Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Updated

Released a few fix-it updates to the Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Firefox extensions this week, which you can get by pressing the “Find Updates” button in your extensions dialog box. Better Gmail 2 version 1.2 plays catch-up with Google’s latest changes to Gmail: Hide Spam Count now works, and I swapped out Folders4Gmail (which no longer works) with Label Links, a script that does something similar to the Labs version of Nested Labels. Also replaced the CPU-hogging...

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

On May 12, 2006, I hacked together my first bash script that was more than a dozen lines and published it on Lifehacker. todo.sh manipulated a todo.txt file at the command line using grep, tail, head, sort, and cat: all the shell-based text tools that I knew and loved. Back then, in Lifehacker’s heyday, I was obsessed with the simplicity and portability of text files, mostly because Danny O’Brien featured them front and center in his original life hacks talk. Since then, Todo.txt...

How To Save Searches In Windows To Access Files Faster

How To Save Searches In Windows To Access Files Faster

The ability to search for files is integrated into every Windows desktop operating system. Microsoft has improved the search in Windows Vista, and these improvements carry over to Windows 7. One useful new feature is the ability to save searches for access at a later time without having to reenter the search parameters. Saving searches can be beneficial if certain searches are performed regularly. But that is not the only advantage, as it is quite possible to use searches as virtual folders...

It is currently only enabled on google.com and only for English queries on that search engine. First results show (according to Google) that less...

Encouraging Diversity in Open Source

My current boss and long-time friend Anil Dash explains how he and I–a guy who looks like a terrorist and a gay-married woman–prioritize diversity in the community of developers working on ThinkTank. The entire interview is worth reading if you’re wondering what the heck we’re working on, but here’s a tidbit: Q: How do you go about ensuring diversity in an open development project? If all comers are welcome… The same way any diversity effort happens,...

What is Google Wave?

What is Google Wave?

Over at Macworld this morning, I took a shot at explaining what Google Wave is (and isn’t). Even in a post Wave-backlash and Buzz world, I’m still bullish about Wave. It’s the best collaboration webapps I’ve ever used. Once you’ve experienced inline replies in a wave with your group, you never want to email again.

Google Social Circle Now Appearing In Search Results

Google Social Circle Now Appearing In Search Results

I’m often spotting new features for logged in users in Google later than anyone else because I usually log out of my Google account before performing searches or doing anything else. That was different this morning which could only have meant that I forgot to log out yesterday night. Well that happens and imagine my surprise when I found out about it. But that’s not the topic of this article. Scrolling down in the search results I spotted a new addition to them in the form...
