www.extensionsmirror.nl http://www.extensionsmirror.nl Find extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari Wed, 13 Nov 2013 17:29:14 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.4.2 Chrome 20 released http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/chrome/news-chrome/chrome-20-released/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/chrome/news-chrome/chrome-20-released/#comments Wed, 26 Sep 2012 11:53:13 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=83 If you are just a casual, everyday user of Google Chrome then you probably won’t notice much of a difference in Chrome 20. Other than the somewhat bigger “new tab” button, the updates are more for developers and standards implementations. So what are the latest and greatest behind the scene features of Chrome 20?

HTML5 Datalist Element

Web-based forms for the HTML5 datalist are now available in Chrome 20. With an auto-suggest box, a suggested option appears in a drop-down list when the user begins to type.

Chrome 20 features the Web Inspector; this provides an open design for mobile developers. Developers may identify the screen resolution and font size to mimic different mobile screen sizes. In addition, Web Inspector allows the designer to imitate mobile touch events with the mouse.

Internal Pages

Chrome 20 has several new internal pages:

  • chrome://inspect/ – this page provides a list running extensions and previously opened tabs, along with the links to Web Inspector
  • chrome://omnibox/ – this page shows Omnibox search term results, most beneficial for Chrome 20 developers and SEO experts.
  • chrome://policy/ – this page provides templates for company group policy implementation

64-Bit Pages

Now that Adobe now longer supports flash plug-in for Linux, Chrome is the only Linux system Flash supporter. With that said, the new Chrome 20 now offers 64-bit Flash support on Linux systems.

Bug Fixes

The three most significant security bug fixes in Chrome 20 have been:

  • A use-after-free may occur in counter handling [CVE-2012-2842].
  • A use-after-free may occur in layout height tracking [CVE-2012-2843].
  • An object access error may occur with JavaScript in PDF [CVE-2012-2844].In other words, a remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target user system. When loaded by the target user, the code will run privileges of the target user.

Exploring the World of Webhosting http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/www/exploring-the-world-of-webhosting/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/www/exploring-the-world-of-webhosting/#comments Tue, 25 Sep 2012 11:42:35 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=80 Webhosting is a necessary service that allows everyday webmasters to maintain their websites on the Internet. A webhost is a company that provides space on their web server to particular clients, who can in turn use that space to create a dynamic website. Without this vital service, millions of sites across the Internet would be unable to function or display for visitors.

Understanding How Webhosting Works

When web users browse the Internet, they send requests for information to the servers that host content. When these requests are received, the web server returns the information in question. While some large websites choose to employ servers of their own, most webmasters instead rent webspace from a webhost company. This service allots a particular amount of room on the server to the webmaster, who can in turn upload the various elements of his site to the server.

Choose a Webhosting Package

When looking for a webhosting solution, there are many different variables would-be webmasters need to take into consideration. One of these variables is bandwidth restrictions. As visitors request information, the data returned is sometimes subjected to what is known as a bandwidth limitation. This means that when a particular data amount has been surpassed, the site will no longer be accessible. Unlimited bandwidth is often the best solution to circumvent such issues.

Uptime guarantees are also important, as these ensure the webmaster that the server will remain active and usable. Some servers are notoriously difficult to work with, simply because they go down frequently, rendering the sites stored on them unable to be accessed. An uptime guarantee is a good way to ensure this issue does not occur.

Finally, price is an important factor in choosing a webhosting package. Webhosting can vary greatly in price, so it is important to find a company that balances the cost of hosting with the features provided by the service. The company ixwebhosting is one such example, offering customers a decent hosting price for a large assortment of varied services. By choosing such a host, webmasters can be certain their sites will be reliable and remain accessible without spending a small fortune each month on hosting fees.

How to rank at Google http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/www/how-to-rank-at-google/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/www/how-to-rank-at-google/#comments Thu, 13 Sep 2012 12:35:25 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=75 Believe it or not but Google is a complex machine that can be a tough egg to crack, but if you create a website that Google loves, you can soon find that you will be ranking great in no time. With high rankings, this can lead to unlimited traffic, high conversion rates and maybe even a potential early retirement. Before you get excited, though, there are some things that you should know about to successfully rate on this popular search engine:

Backlinks are Very Important – Focus on Quality

 

Google Serach Engine

Google Serach Engine

Backlinks are the backbone of search engine optimization. Without links coming from other websites, Google has a hard time determining if your website is a quality website or not. You could have the best website in the world but if no one knows about it or links to it, Google won’t either.

Now with backlinks, there are a few things to keep in mind. Don’t just set out and get a 10.000 backlink package. These will just turn out to be junk that can potentially harm your website. Instead, focus on getting quality links. These links should come from authoritative websites that can potentially send you lots of traffic. So it’s best to have one link from a popular newspaper rather than 10.000 links from junk. The amount and qualtity of backlinks results in the Google Pagerank of your site. You can check your Pageank here.

Try to Learn About Basic SEO

Many assume that Google frowns upon SEOs. This isn’t the case. As long as you’re playing by the rules, Google will reward your website. With that being said, it’s best to know the basics of SEO. This includes learning about editing your META title and description tags, your website hierarchy, using the right keywords and creating unique pieces. While there’s a lot more to this, keep in mind that there’s a lot that you can do to make your website search engine friendly. Google has a fantastic webmaster guide that you can look up to get started with this.

Build Quality – The Results will Follow

So many webmasters make the mistake of trying to set out and getting the most backlinks possible. You have to realize that it isn’t a numbers game; it’s a quality game. By building a great site that people actually want to use, you will quickly find that people want to link out to you. Think about it for a second. Think of the websites that you visit on everyday. What makes them great? Why do you keep coming back? Try to implement those strategies into your own website. If you focus on quality first, the rankings will follow!

As long as you focus on the user and use basic SEO strategies on your website, there’s no reason Google won’t love you. As long as a demand is there for the niche, Google can be an extremely powerful marketing tool that can drive thousands of dollars to your bottom line.

Apple Solves Web Stability Issues with Safari 5.1.5 http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/safari/news-safari/apple-solves-web-stability-issues-with-safari-5-1-5/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/safari/news-safari/apple-solves-web-stability-issues-with-safari-5-1-5/#comments Mon, 02 Apr 2012 12:32:50 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=56 With the release of the Safari 5.1.5 web browser, internet users who are running Safari on the recently updated 32-bit mode, can heave sighs of relief from serious website usability bugs. Safari 5.1.5 was updated to fix these bugs, and other stability problems. Safari, which is one of the most used mobile and desktop web browsers, was developed and released by Apple Inc. on April 7, 2003, to run as a public beta on Apple’s Mac OS X operating system. Safari was to become the default browser of the company, with the first version released on June 11, 2007, to support Windows XP, Windows 7, and Vista. It was hailed by many internet users as the most innovative web browser for Mac and PC users. Safari’s exciting features offer great browsing experience to 62.71% of mobile web browsers and 5.43 % of desktop web browsers.
Apple Inc. has released many versions of Safari, since after its first release, to address various web stability issues. These versions include the following: Safari 5.1.1, Safari 5.1.2, Safari 5.1.3, Safari 5.1.4, and Safari 5.1.5. Safari 5 (Safari 5.1.5) is the latest release of Apple’s Safari browser versions. It was released on March 26, 2012, barely 2 weeks after the release of Safari 5.1.4.

Safari 5.1.5 was released to take care of web stability issues experienced by users of this Apple’s web browser. A 64-bit code was used by Apple Inc. to run its Safari web programs hence; all its hardware and software support were designed to help Safari users to run the program on this code. It was not long before compatibility issues came up, including issues of support for older plug-ins. This led to Apple’s launch of the 32-bit binary code, to help Safari users overcome earlier problems. However, users running Safari on the 32-bit mode began to experience problems, while trying to run some websites. There were also issues of update failures.

With the release of Safari 5.1.5, users running Windows and Mac OS X 10.6.8 will experience some stability fixes and bug-free browsing. The Safari 5.1.5 version requires Windows XP SP2 and later versions to install it. For Mac users, installing Safari 5.1.5 requires OS X 10.7.3, OS X 10.6.8 or any later version. This version of Safari is between 38MB and 48MB and can be downloaded either from the Safari website or via software update.

Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/chrome/extensions-chrome/top-5-google-chrome-extensions/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/chrome/extensions-chrome/top-5-google-chrome-extensions/#comments Mon, 02 Apr 2012 12:25:57 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=52 For a few years, Mozilla Firefox laid claim to being the premier web browser in terms of extensions to enhance users’ internet experience. But since Google launched its Chrome extension gallery along with the release of Chrome 4.0 in 2010, we’ve seen the browser overtake all its competitors in terms of speed, stability, and the richness of extensions available. Here are the top 5 Chrome extensions.

1. Google Mail Checker

The convenience of this extension can’t be overstated. If you have a Gmail account, you have a quick counter of new e-mails in your inbox, and can access your account with a single click. It just makes other means of checking your e-mail seem cumbersome.

2. AdBlock

This is one of the top 5 Chrome extensions but is also a bit controversial. You can use it to reduce the number of ads you deal with online, but for a guilt-free experience, you can turn it off for specific sites to help support them with ad revenue.

3.TweetDeck

It isn’t surprising with the current popularity of Twitter that this is one of the most used extensions for Chrome. It’s not just one of the best Twitter apps but one of the top 5 Chrome extensions.

4. Google Translate

This app is great for anyone in the world. While there’s obviously still a long way to go in terms of internet translators providing accurate translations, Google Translate is at the forefront, and this extension is very convenient to bring down language barriers a tad with a couple of clicks.

5. Google Chrome to Phone

For Chrome users who have Android phones, this is one of the top 5 Chrome extensions. You have to download it on both your computer and phone, but after that, it’s a simple, intuitive tool to send maps, links, texts, or phone numbers to your Android.

Given Google’s technological dominance and the thriving user community for Chrome, it’s exciting to see where they go from here. Give these top 5 Chrome extensions a try to see what Chrome offers.

A list of the top 5 Opera extensions http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/opera/extensions-opera/a-list-of-the-top-5-opera-extensions/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/opera/extensions-opera/a-list-of-the-top-5-opera-extensions/#comments Mon, 02 Apr 2012 12:18:29 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=50 Second only to Firefox, Opera is a browser for the more internet savvy amongst us, and like Firefox, it can be customized with a wide array of plugins for your individual preferences. This is a rundown of the top 5 among Opera extensions. Let’s get started!

5. Snap Links

If you find yourself opening lots of links on the same page, Snap Links ought to be amongst your top 5 Opera extensions. Just click and drag a box around any number of links and Opera will open them all in the background at once.

4. Download Helper

Getting files from the popular direct download sites can be quite a chore, forcing you to wait 60 seconds or more for each file. If you’re getting more than one, the tedium can be overwhelming. Easily one of the top 5 Opera extensions, Download Helper bypasses those counters and automates the process for you.

3. Easy Translation

Unexpectedly encountering a site that’s heavy on an unfamiliar language can be jarring. And sometimes that’s where the information you need is hiding. Easy Translation will take all of that text and run it through Google Translate for you with one click, and replace it as it appears on the page.

2. Facebook Preview

These days, it’s not unusual to have Facebook constantly open in its own window or tab, just so you can stay on top of what’s happening. Free up that space with Facebook Preview, which automatically retrieves your notifications and displays them in a small, integrated box, so you never even have to check back unless you need to.

1. NotScripts

Blocking harmful scripts and popups isn’t just for Firefox users — NotScripts, deservedly the first of the top 5 Opera extensions, accomplishes this same feat unobtrusively. After a while, you’ll forget what typical browsing looked like before you installed it.

This list of the top 5 Opera extensions barely scratches the surface — if you think Opera is missing a feature, there’s likely an extension for it. These, however, offer the best utility, and will enhance anyone’s browsing!

Opera 11.62: A Harmony of Speed and Security http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/opera/news-opera/opera-11-62-a-harmony-of-speed-and-security/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/opera/news-opera/opera-11-62-a-harmony-of-speed-and-security/#comments Mon, 02 Apr 2012 12:10:24 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=40 The Opera browser has long been recognized as one of the fastest around, consistently outperforming Internet Explorer and Firefox in speed tests. The release of Opera 11.62 provides several updates that improve security and reliability, while maintaining the speed that has been one of the browser’s hallmark strengths.

The “security and stability” updates included in Opera 11.62 address seven specific browser vulnerabilities found to affect version 11.61. Two of the more serious flaws, deemed “high severity,” allowed hackers to use certain security holes to trick users into downloading and executing potentially malicious code on their computers. To ensure the safest browsing experience, users should regularly check the Opera website to make sure they are running the most recent version.

The software engineers at Opera have been busy ensuring that Opera 11.62 has all of the features users expect in modern browsers. Enhancements such as private browsing, malware detection, fraud warnings, tabbed windows and HTML5 support are all part of the new release. A user-invoked option called Opera Turbo uses dynamic compression and caching to speed browsing on slow connections.

One of Opera’s most appealing characteristics is its support for extensions and widgets. Extensions are code modules designed to supplement the browser’s standard functionality or appearance. Installation involves launching executables that inject additional code into the browser’s original programming. Once installed, users can make tweaks such as changing the browser’s color scheme or enabling YouTube video downloads. Widgets are mini-applications that users can download to their desktops and run as separate programs. Although widgets don’t require Opera to be open in order to run, they do require the browser to be installed on the user’s machine. Opera 11.62 extensions and widgets are available the Opera website.

The developers at Norway-based Opera Software ASA are the brains behind the Opera browser. Since its founding in 1994, the company has relied upon a philosophy of advancing free information access to drive its development efforts. Opera 11.62 runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. The Opera Mini 7 mobile version currently dominates the portable browser market, beating Android by a slim margin.

Here’s a list of the top 5 Firefox extensions, which you ought to add to your Firefox experience — if you haven’t already!

5. Download Statusbar

Download Statusbar gives you a simple, quickly customizable bar at the bottom of your window to keep track of your files. It’s a great improvement over the default Firefox download manager, and gets rid of that annoying popup window.

4. InstantFox Quick Search

3. Greasemonkey

Nearly an entity unto itself, Greasemonkey uses customized pieces of Javascript to control the way various websites behave. It’s easy to use and has a large library of scripts to get you started — you can even write your own!

2. Video DownloadHelper

We’ve all wanted to revisit or have a friend watch a video we came across on the web, only to find it’s been taken down or moved. Who knows if you’ll be able to find it again? Nearly the most popular of the top 5 Firefox extensions, Video DownloadHelper lets you save that video to your hard drive with one click. It even supports several different video formats.

1. Adblock Plus

Easily the most popular, it’s hard to understand why Firefox doesn’t come with this, the best of the top 5 Firefox extensions, already installed. It runs unobtrusively in the background, kills popups, stops those irritating video ads, and prevents you from having to see many more.

Google Chrome 17 http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/chrome/news-chrome/google-chrome-17/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/chrome/news-chrome/google-chrome-17/#comments Sun, 01 Apr 2012 18:00:42 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=37 Chrome 17.0 is the latest version of Google’s web browser. Chrome 17.0 was predated by various other versions of the browser, which was originally released by Google On September 2, 2008 as a beta version. Belonging to one of the worldwide leaders of internet technology, Chrome 17.0 provides one of the most efficient internet experiences, both for casual browsers and technology geeks alike.

Chrome 17.0 aims to be the fastest, simplest, most secure, and most stable web browser on the market. It includes one of the most efficient application performances and the fastest JavaScript processing speed. With Chrome 17.0, Google introduced download scanning protection, which was set to help prevent its users from being tricked into downloading malicious malware. In addition, Google introduced to chrome an “incognito mode,” which prevents the browser from storing a history date or cookies from the websites visited while in said mode.

Google allows its Chrome users to create desktop shortcuts which open Chrome applications in the browser. Google ‘s Chrome Web Store is a directory that includes all of its web applications. Chrome 17.0 is home to over 11,500 extensions, ranging from “The Independent” to “FIFA”. In addition to applications and extensions, Chrome users can also install themes that alter the appearance of the browser itself. Google Chrome also includes a built in language translator, which currently consists of 52 languages, with more promised to be included in the future.

Google Chrome 17.0 is offered on all major operating systems. The supported systems include Windows XP, Vista and 7, Mac OS, and Ubuntu. Early in 2012, Google Chrome overtook Mozilla Firefox as the second most popular web browser, behind only Microsoft’s omnipresent Internet Explorer. Chrome has received almost entirely positive reviews from its users and hopes to use usage data and user surveys to create an even more user-friendly product in the future. If future versions of Google’s internet browser follow the same path of innovation as Chrome 17.0, users of Chrome can expect an even more pleasant internet browsing experience than they have already grown accustomed to.

Firefox 11 http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/firefox/news/firefox-11/ http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/firefox/news/firefox-11/#comments Sun, 01 Apr 2012 14:53:39 +0000 admin http://176.34.183.76/app/instances/www.extensionsmirror.nl/?p=33 Firefox 11 is the latest installment in Mozilla’s series of Firefox web browsers. This version promises to make the web even easier to access, as well as to boost your productivity. The Firefox browser evolved out of the first browser made by the Mozilla Foundation, based on the Gecko engine used in some versions of the old Netscape Navigator browser. The browser originally focused on security at a time when the Internet Explorer browser was publicized as having many open security holes that could be taken advantage of. As time has gone on, the browser has expanded in terms of features and versatility.

Firefox 11 was released in 2012 in its final-release format, available for numerous platforms, including PCs running Windows and Linux, and Macintosh computers running MacOS X. Firefox is also now available for iOS and Android devices, including smartphones and tablets.

With a renewed focus on expanding support for synchronization between multiple devices, Firefox 11 allows the user to save bookmarks, install plugins, and configure their settings, and have these personalizations carry over to Firefox on their other devices, such as their work computer, phone or tablet. Firefox 11 sports the ability for even plug-ins to have their settings properly translate to each other machine the user installs Firefox onto. This is extremely convenient, as plug-ins comprise a substantial percentage of many users’ overall user experience.

Improvements have been made to keep the so-called “AwesomeBar” up to expectations. This is likely one of the most favorable features of Firefox 11. If you do not remember the exact name or address of a page you have previously visited, you can just begin typing whatever terms you remember that relate to the page into the address bar, and it will bring up a list of suggestions, sorted in order of relevance. Many users have found this absolutely invaluable.

Firefox 11 is so far proving to be another worthy addition in this browser’s lineage, and it can be strongly recommended to any user.
