Tile Tabs for Firefox: Letting You Use The Full Potential Of Your Wide Screen

There’s a reason the new Chromebook Pixel, an expensive high-end machine, uses a 3:4 aspect ratio rather than widescreen 16:9. It’s because the Web is vertical. Webpages scroll up and down, but most of us have widescreen machine these days. As a result, most websites have generously proportioned margins – basically, just wide swaths of blank background, showing nothing. Sometimes that’s nice, but sometimes you might want to use all of those pixels more productively.

Awesome SNES Games You May Have Never Played [MUO Gaming]

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) is, in my opinion the greatest video game system ever made. It has the perfect amount of old school feel and style, while still having good enough graphics and sound to produce beautiful looking games. The addition of two extra face buttons and the L and R button on the top expanded the possibilities for gameplay in ways the original NES just couldn’t. Throughout the history of the SNES, over 700 games were released.

Black Menu: Access All Google Services Within A Single Menu [Chrome]

Let’s face it – Google is awesome. If you’re like me, you use it for everything: emailing, scheduling, file storage, navigation, apps, your browser (Chrome), etc. But there’s one major problem – how do you easily access those apps and services? Google’s solution is a black bar across the screen. I’m not really a big fan of that, plus I can’t customize it. So what’s a better solution? How about one button for all the services?

How To Chat On Facebook From The Comfort Of Your Desktop

From the first days of public Internet, it’s been a long and winding road for chat. From Web chats that were nothing but forums, to ICQ and IRC, to MSN Messenger and Google Talk, and finally – the chat most of us use today – Facebook chat. To me, chat’s evolution is a bit sad, really. As old as ICQ and IRC look today, they were both chat protocols and programs I really enjoyed using.

osu! – The Most Fun & Complete Rhythm Game You’ll Find [MUO Gaming]

Looking back over this game today, I can’t imagine what would have initially attracted me to osu!, because I’ve always been terrible with mouse-heavy games and I’ve never been a fan of J-pop or K-pop. That being said, I’ve somehow been addicted to this game since the first time I played it. If you’ve played Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, or any other game in that genre, you know that it feels completely different from any other gaming experience.

Every single one of us has a few items laying around the house that we’d like to sell, but sometimes the more conventional methods of transactions can be a bit sketchy. Craigslist often has a few crazy individuals stalking its boards, and eBay typically provides ample opportunities for scammers. Wouldn’t it be better to sell items to the people that you already know and trust?

Miss Gadgets & Widgets On Windows 8? Here’s How You Can Get Them Back
