Thousands of people, including myself, criedout in terror when Google removed the “Side Tabs” from Chrome. I tried for one month to settle into Firefox + Firebug + Tree Style Tabs as my main browser, but that combination is nowhere near is snappy as Chrome for my workload.
My workaround has been to use the most recent build of Chromium (Chrome’s open-source alter ego) that still contained the Side Tabs feature. Because there are no security updates available for this version, I use NoScript and whitelist scripting on sites as needed.
I like to download lectures and presentations from YouTube so that I can play them back using VLC at 2x playback speed.
My favorite option for downloading is this YouTube video download GreaseMonkey script that adds a download button to the YouTube video page. It works in Chrome, and in Firefox with GreaseMonkey. This is vastly superior to the more-popular YouTube video save sites that require to you execute a sketchy Java applet.
I’ve made a video showing how Webkit handles animating of CSS3 transforms very differently from animating of CSS position (left, top) or margin. The are several different conditions that will trigger the browser to use a “composite layer” which minimizes repaints and allows for hardware-accelerated composting. The benefits are especially dramatic in iOS Safari.
Try the example and compare the behavior in your browser’s inspection tools
I recently created an auction on eBay and needed to choose the most effective ending date and time for the auction. Although I didn’t find any research that took into account the closing price, this post drew conclusions based on eBay site traffic stats.
Daily peak visitorship is between 8:00 PM eastern time and 10:00 PM pacific time.
Weekly peak visitorship is on Sunday evening. To match your listing to the weekly peak in order to maximize bidding, list so that your auction will close on a Sunday evening between 8:00 PM eastern time and 10:00 PM pacific time.
