There comes a time when browser developers decide to implement a specific feature or do things in certain way that may cripple user experience.
So, lets dig into this mess and find out, what these things actually are.
Internet Explorer: Connecting
Turns out, such simple task as opening new tab, can also become a headache. If you’ve been using Internet Explorer 7/8, then infamous “Connecting…” message is already wired into your brain.
As you might know, Opera 10.60 brings support for search suggestions. However, it currently works for Bing and Wikipedia only.
Fortunately, you can now enable such suggestions for Google as well. Here is how:
1. Open search.ini file from your profile directory (if you have issues finding such file, type opera:about for some file paths).
With FoxToPhone extension, Firefox users can enjoy the very same functionality. Basically, you can now send all kind of data, such as: web links, images, selected text, telephone numbers and more from Firefox to Android 2.2.
• Internet Explorer 9 Launching on September 15th
IE team has just announced the launch of Internet Explorer 9 Beta that will take place in San Francisco on September 15th.
As Microsoft celebrates the 15th birthday of Internet Explorer, lets dive into the past and see how it all started…
Internet Explorer 1
Back in August 16, 1995, Microsoft has released the very first version of Internet Explorer which was essentially just a reworked version of Mosaic web browser.
It looks like the final version of Firefox 4 will have TabCandy (now called Tab Sets) already installed into the browser itself.
Starting from Firefox 4 Beta 4, that is set for August 20th release, users will be able to enjoy enhanced tabs functionality.
If you haven’t heard about TabCandy yet, check the following post.
During the press event in San Francisco, Google has announced the availability of Chrome to Phone extension.
What does it do?
Basically, it allows you to send currently selected text, links, maps, etc. from your Chrome web browser to any Android 2.2 devices.
Did you know that there are over 30 ad block plugins and extensions for the top 5 web browsers?
Well, now you do.
AdBlockList.com (as the domain name suggests) is a web site that lists a ton of ad blockers for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari web browsers. Great resource, if you are interested in such tools.
