Access All Google Services From A Button on Your Browser 1 year 1 week ago tommyzulu

Beware -- the add on in Firefox at least asked for permissson to mine data from all type of Google sources.

Access All Google Services From A Button on Your Browser 1 year 1 week ago rhiannon

I'm not clear on what you mean "mine data from all type of Google sources". Could you be more specific about your concerns and what kind of data you see them mining?
I'm asking because I read the whole Privacy Policy before I wrote up the article and if I missed something I would like to know so I can amend the article.

There's a mention in this article that they do ask for permission for some services. I didn't check all the services because I don't use most of them, so if they are asking for permission to mine personal data or doing something else that violates personal privacy in another service I would very much like to know about it so I can warn people.

The add-on does ask for permissions so it can access some Google services - if it didn't have those permissions it wouldn't be able to function. As far as I can tell, it doesn't collect more data than is needed for the correct functioning of the website and extensions. If I'm in error, I would appreciate knowing about it.

Specifics can be found in the Privacy Policy.

I use Google as my home page and it has a nine dot button that accesses all the Google services that I use. I can see where this extension might be useful for those that might use a different home page though.

view

Using Google as home page works great. :)

The browser button sits on the toolbar, so you can access services when you're on any web page. It also allows access to almost all the Google services from one spot - if you use Google services extensively or want to check your Gmail from the toolbar apps menu it's a great tool.

You have to sacrifice a bit of browser speed with every add on addition so I have become very selective. "I don't care about cookies" was an excellent recommendation by Rhiannon some months ago but I think a quick click to the Google home page makes this one unnecessary.

view
Access All Google Services From A Button on Your Browser 1 year 1 week ago rhiannon

I'm probably not as selective. I have a few add-ons that are staples, others come and go. At the moment I'm liking add-ons that get rid of overlays.
I consider the large overlays that pop up when you move the mouse and block much of the screen offensive (I don't mind small ones) and it's not always clear how to close it, which makes it more offensive.
Ctrl + W (close window) has become one of my most used keyboard shortcuts since they started proliferating.
If a large overlay pops up, I have to really want to view the page content to get rid of it and stay on the page, otherwise that window gets closed in heartbeat with the keyboard shortcut.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I also find overlays and elements such as "We notice your using an ad blocker" annoying. I've discovered the STYLEBOT addon is pretty useful for hiding many of these types of distractions and showing only what I want to see on the page.

Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 years 8 months ago snowbound999

Google Chrome by default will add a website to its "Orher Search Engline" list automatically when you go to a website and use it's Search box to search for anything. For example go to bleepingcomputer.com [a well known computer help website] search for anything using the website search box on their web page. Then look under Chrome's Search Engine page udner "Other Search Engines". You will see a Bleeping Computer" entry in Chrome.

I discovered that Chrome here had over 100 such entries added automatically. Some of these entries even had the search terms that I was looking for on that particular website! People have complained to Chrome Devs that this behaviour is a privacy issue and that there should be a way of disabling this option. There is no way of disabling this behaviour on Chrome

If I seen this type of behaviour on some one's computer I would normally think a malware infection like a browser hijacking. This type of behaviour by Chrome made me go back to using Firefox on all my computers.

I have hit another insidious behavior on the Chrome based OPERA. I am getting a Google message that it can't find the DNS for the site and I am not sure why Google is controlling that. Often the site will come up, blink off with the message and might reapppear. I know Google is inserting their URL in front of every site you go to but this is getting weird

What I just don't understand is that mad dash of "[Google] Chrome is the best browser" out there. Nobody ever defines what their interpretation of "best browser" actually means.

Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 years 7 months ago Remah

I'm not sure what the fuss is over and above everything else that Google does or does not do.

To clarify:

  • Google Chrome doesn't do this for every site search. It only does it where the website uses Google Custom Search. You can usually tell if Google Custom Search is being used because the search results will follow a selection of Google-supplied ads that say "Ads by Google related to: " your search term. In such a case, Google already have access to "private" information that you want to protect. I guess that Google will almost certainly have enough information to identify your computer and your user account as well.
  • Google does provide an opt out feature. If you don't want this sort of information on your computer then you should be using Incognito mode which disables both browsing history and other search engines.
  • Unless you use Incognito mode then the information will be in your browsing history anyway.

If I was a user of Google Chrome and Google already had that info then I would prefer the benefit of some automation of searches over not having that feature.

view
Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 years 7 months ago snowbound999

Sorry but have to use incognito mode for all sites is not an opt out option. Its a work around. That option hinders my browsing on all websites since Chrome would have to be always using incognito mode. I have got fed up with Google's attitude over the years of either doing it their way or take the high road. I decided the later and ditch Chrome as my browser.

I can search these same websites just fine in Firefox which does not have to save all of this search engines in my browser. I use UBlock Origin on my browsers to block annoying ads as well as malware that in the past have been served up intentionally and unintentionally on websites. I only unblock a select few websites.

view
Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 years 7 months ago Remah

Google Chrome's incognito mode is Google's opt out option if you have concerns about the privacy of your local browsing history. We may not like their attitude and the option may not be adequate - it is probably still the case that Chrome doesn't delete all your temporary browsing data - but it is the option that they provide.

A work around is something like having to suspend tracking after you have logged into a google account while in incognito mode. See How secret is Google Chrome's 'incognito' mode? for more info on this issue.

I downloaded this, but it was flagged by Symantec Antivirus as potentially dangerous. Not sure if I should load it, but it could be helpful.

view
Access Your PC Remotely Via Any Web Browser 3 years 2 months ago MidnightCowboy

When you use security software it is important to understand how it flags certain files. Symantec uses a ridiculous scoring system based on such diverse data as the traffic received by the containing website. This they do to fulfill their promise to protect users from everything, which they can't and which they don't. So if pretty much everything is flagged as potentially dangerous they have themselves covered if you then choose to install a real rogue. The better course of action is to use a multiple scanning service before installing and hey-ho Symantec here say it's fine. :D MC - Site Manager.

@Geekomatic:
Thank you for your comment. I could have found a gem - if AeroAdmin holds up to the promises; I will try it.

I gained the following by cursory reading on the respective web sites:

AeroAdmin is NOT "totally free for business use" as you state (see: https://www.aeroadmin.com/en/buy.html ).

AeroAdmin is made to enable admin(s) to access/control other computer(s).

Ulterius is made to enable one computer to be accessed from multiple locations via web browser without needing software installed on the remote machine(s).

Maybe you want to look up the meaning of "ulterior"?

Or you could use Opera, as I have done for right at 20 years now. The new Opera uses the Chrome source and is almost always on the cutting edge of innovation. One other plus is that it tends not to have hackers trying to screw around with the software, because it is not one of the most used big boys.

Accidentally Closed All Your Browser Tabs? No Problem! 3 years 7 months ago MilesAhead

That is a nice tip since I mostly use SlimJet, yet another chrome variation. As for Opera, I stayed with v. 8.52 for years when other browsers got bulky with feature creep. I still have Opera v. 12.14 64 bit for when the up to date browsers cannot seem to do something such as playing a Flash video from a particular site. Opera did some things well but the publishers adhered to bizarre obstinacy in strange places such as objecting to an AutoCopy method or any alternative to carpal tunnel syndrome when copying lines to the clipboard. The same attitude seems to plague Vivaldi.

For now I find SlimJet Portable 32 bit to be my chrome flavor of choice. :)

BGInfo is a great way to have information visible on the Windows desktop, is very customisable, and even better, its "portable"

I can change the text size, font, colour, and choose any or all of the Windows system information options

And as Rob suggests, I can remove ALL the computer information and just have other information, such as a to do list for the day, or a list of quotations, or anything I like !

However, readers would appreciate knowing that this program makes changes to the registry, and that once you use this program, it is not immediately obvious how to "uninstall the program"

After reading BGInfo's homepage and the homepage's recommended reading site, I was still unsure how to uninstall this program

Thankfully, I found the answer in the Help section of the program:
"BGInfo does not require any special installation. To run it simply execute BGINFO.EXE from a convenient location.
To uninstall, delete BGINFO.EXE and reset your system's wallpaper using Windows' Desktop Properties dialog"

Something also not clear - how can we get BGInfo to "display the contents of a text file". Sounds very useful, for example to display a regularly updated text file of events for the current calendar month. The instructions were not simply explained

Thanks Rob for yet another marvellous Hot Find, you are amazing, and a much valued asset to the TechSupportAlert website

I rate BGInfo a 10/10 for being portable, and so very customisable !

And correct me if I'm wrong, but BgInfo uses NO system resources ! So I rate it a 10+/10 !

Using BGInfo and another freeware program "Photo On Desktop-7", which allows me the very basic but essential task of floating any chosen image on my computer screen (eg a to do list, or a loved ones photo), and my daily organisation skills are enhanced greatly !

I have no affiliation with either program

If that does not work, then remove the torrent from that Vuze and see below.

I'm still confused by all the options to choose from.

Usually on a Mac, you tell it where the directory is and it always remembers. In this case there are 3 different places where I can tell it where the Vuze/downloads directory on the external HD is, I delete the original Vuze/downloads directory from the user/library (created when I downloaded Vuze to the 2nd computer) and when I restart Vuze on the 2nd computer, it recreates the deleted directory and replaces all the parameters I changed back to the original directory location.

When I changed the directory location on computer 1 to the external HD, there was no problem. The downloaded movies appeared in the library.

No so with computer 2 using the same external HD...
