Firefox, What I Would Like To See

Firefox, What I Would Like To See

Firefox is my default web browser, which can be mainly attributed to its amazing add-on support and customizability. But other browsers have emerged (Chrome) or improved to a point, that Firefox feels old fashioned in certain categories. Especially speed and performance wise. If you ever experienced how fast Chrome or Opera are opening the most complex websites, and then compared that to Firefox, you know that something is amiss there. The Firefox developers on the other hand seem to favor...

ShellWin, Hide The Windows 7 Taskbar

ShellWin, Hide The Windows 7 Taskbar

In previous versions of Windows, it was possible to minimize the Windows taskbar to free up some additional space on the desktop for Windows. If you try that in Windows 7, you will notice that it is not working. There does not seem to be a way to minimize the taskbar in the operating system, which some users may miss, especially if they have used the feature in previous operating systems. Enter ShellWin, a third party software that can be used to hide and show the Windows 7 taskbar. The...

Thunderbird Mute Thread, Ignore Email Discussions

Thunderbird Mute Thread, Ignore Email Discussions

When it comes to email discussions with multiple participants, it sometimes happens that the discussion takes a turn that is no longer of interest to individual users. This can be a discussion on a mailing list for instance, where other members of the list discuss specific topics. Being part of the mailing list however means that those emails arrive in every user’s inbox. It also means that all users have to deal with the messages, which often means marking them read or deleting...

Hotmail Announces Email Security Updates

Hotmail Announces Email Security Updates

Microsoft on Monday said that they started to improve the email service Hotmail with security updates to protect legit user accounts from being hijacked. The term hijacker refers to malicious users who manage to get access to email accounts of Hotmail users, either by brute force, phishing or other forms of social engineering. Like Microsoft, Hotmail users need to understand security concepts to keep their accounts safe. To support their users, Microsoft has created a short list of tips...

Moo0 TransparentMenu, Colorful and Transparent Menus In Windows

Moo0 TransparentMenu, Colorful and Transparent Menus In Windows

MooO TransparentMenu adds two features to menus in the Windows operating system, that are not available by default. Theme-wise, Windows is not the most configurable operating system. This changes only after users make changes to system files, to unlock the ability to add advanced themes that can practically alter any aspect of the operating system. Most users on the other hand shy away from that, understandably. But, changing some colors and desktop backgrounds is not really enough for...

A walk around the GNOME desktop

A walk around the GNOME desktop

Recently I had a reader request a bit of a “how to” on the GNOME desktop. After giving it some thought, and at first wondering why anyone would need a walk around for the GNOME desktop, I realized that some users simply don’t have the ability to look at the computer desktop from the same vantage point as those of us who “get it”. With that thought in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to give a sort of walk through of the GNOME desktop from the perspective...

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

Nautilus is one versatile file manager. The ability to add actions (with the help of Nautilus Actions) makes Nautils’ ability seemingly endless. I have covered adding actions to Nautilus before (see my article “Add actions to extend Nautilus functionality“). That article covered an earlier version of Nautilus Actions. Now that this tool has matured quite a bit, I thought it wise to revisit the topic and show you yet another way you can take advantage of this ability to...

Google: Apple is not our main competitor

Google: Apple is not our main competitor

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s Alan Murray, the CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, discussed how and who Google now needs to compete against and it’s clear that the foundation of the company, search, is still its main focus going forward. In the interview, Schmidt described Microsoft’s search engine as their main competitor, describing it as a “well-run, highly competitive search engine.” He said that Microsoft need to be watched and implied that...
