Using Google Chrome? Here’s How to Reach Under The Hood & Customize Special Settings

Chrome is one of my favorite Google products. Google got a few core, basic principles right in its design, and instead of becoming bloated over time like most software, Chrome remained svelte, secure, and very, very fast. That doesn’t mean Chrome can’t be customized. There are countless add-ons in the Chrome Web Store, many of which work well without adding bloat. But today I’d like to discuss a different sort of customization.

Start a Virtual Band Using JAM With Chrome

Being in a band while growing up is one of those rites of passage many people go through. Unfortunately it’s only a select few bands which break out of their local vicinity to experience nationwide, or even worldwide, fame and fortune. However, even those who only ever get a couple of gigs playing to their family and friends still get to live out their dreams, even if it’s only on a very temporary basis.

Silver Bird Brings Twitter To Your Finger Tips [Chrome]

A while ago, I checked out TweetDeck for Chrome as an in-browser solution for Twitter. TweetDeck for Chrome is exactly like the regular TweetDeck only you don’t have to leave your browser to use it. As great as it is, it’s still a full-fledged client, even when it’s sitting in a browser tab. In order to really keep up with Twitter, I was looking for something lighter, easier to use, and that will always be just one click away. And then I found Silver Bird.

Why Do Chrome Plugins Need Access To ‘All My Data’ and ‘Browsing Activity’?

If you’ve installed Chrome plugins, you’ve probably seen a warning that they can access your data on all websites, your tabs and browsing activity, or even all the data on your computer. This warning can be scary, especially if you’re installing a simple browser extension that looks harmless. Unfortunately, the way web browsers and web pages work means that extensions must ask for quite a few permissions to do simple things.

Comodo IceDragon Combines Comodo Internet Security With Firefox Browsing

Over the years, I’ve tried a few modified builds of the Firefox client. Pale Moon is one of my favorites. It’s an alternative that really slims down on resources and pulls some weight off the bones of Firefox. The internet security gurus at Comodo have their own build of Firefox floating around, and it’s called IceDragon. IceDragon is a version of the Firefox browser with enhanced tweaks for performance and Comodo security. It’s worth a look.
