HTTPS Everywhere – encrypt the web! This plugin is the result of an initiative by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and it will always attempt to use a secure, encrypted connection to any web page you try to visit, so that third parties cannot eavesdrop (or make it harder for them to do so, anyway). This functionality does not yet exist in Chrome, as such. However, there’s the «HTTPS Enforcer» extension, which comes pretty close. Note from the developer:«Chrome doesn’t yet have the necessary API to make this plugin completely secure as Firefox plugin (https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere). So, plugin doesn’t provide the full security benefits of Firefox HTTPS Everywhere, but I think it would a) provide a clear improvement in security to those who understand the risks, b) make it easy to provide the full security benefits as soon as the necessary APIs have landed. It may also increase the pressure to finish those APIs. By the way, needed APIs currently are experimental, so we can use it in stable version soon. Stay tuned.»
Add to Search Bar. Chrome kicks butt in this department, as it automatically saves and imports the functionality of every search engine you use while you’re surfing. No need to install anything!
BTW, the theme uses Microsoft‘s Georgia font, which is simply gorgeous, but if you’re using Linux, where it does not come pre-installed by default, you may want to install the package ttf-mscore-fonts, so that you get to see what the designer really intended you to.διαβάστε περισσότερα
So you want to buy a netbook for some logically sound reason no doubt, but what choices are there? Well currently there’s ahh, Windows and ahh, Windows. We are all too well aware of what Microsoft did to the netbook market, but in all fairness perhaps the main problem was that Linux just wasn’t ready. It certainly seemed to fit well; cheap, low cost, light. Linux fits right in. The versions of Linux which came with first generation netbooks weren’t bad per se, but they weren’t fantastic either. They were more of a custom hack on a full blown desktop operating system, and then castrated. Ouch.διαβάστε περισσότερα
