Quick Tip: Find the URL of the page you saved locally

with 3 comments

It’s 2012, all right. Some of us still save web pages locally, and this tip might help if you’re a Google Chrome user. Opening up the saved web page from your local computer will load it with its local address in the address bar.

Ever opened a web page that’s completely filled with ads? Chances are you’re not alone. Many of us have to wade through blocks of flashy ads before any useful content loads on a page. Some ads can be tolerated, but you can’t stand many of them.

Showdown: IE 9 vs Google Chrome 10. What’s better?

with 11 comments

Guest Post by Gouthaman Karunakaran

Both Chrome 10 and IE 9 have come out this month and I think this is the best time for a post with totally frank comparisons that’ll help you decide which browser is for you.

Chrome 10 came out last week and one of the main things you are expected to find is a better JavaScript engine called Crankshaft. This means a lot to everyone because it could make your browsing faster than before.

Features like background pages, hardware acceleration and an “options” web page (instead of the window) also strive to make Chrome a polished, better browser.

I’ve have never loved IE much, but the latest version makes me wants to change my stance about it. It’s finally becoming more standards compliant, faster and secure. The UI has a streamlined look and its ability to pin tabs might just make you fall in love with it.

Without much ado, let’s have a little comparison between these browsers to find out which one’s right for you! There are some categories on which we’ll compare the browsers for the sake of clarity.
