Turn your browser into a cool and usable text editor with one click

imageI came across a post earlier that is way cool. With a simple insert of the text/html Data URI into the browser address bar, you can turn the Chrome browser into a full-on text editor with bells and whistles.

Internet Explorer, the browser you loved to hate

Microsoft created a new video about how fantastic the latest version of Internet Explorer is, and I have to admit, it’s very funny. They really capture the essence of the past, where if you were like me, you seriously disliked IE; although I never uninstalled it off anyone’s computer. It’s a funny idea that I might have to pull on someone that doesn’t know any better now that I have seen this.

The definition of collusion is a “secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, esp. in order to cheat or deceive others.” One might say that tracking your online activities unbeknownst to you is collusion.

Google Chrome for the first time has surpassed Firefox

In some nice music to my ears, for the first time Google Chrome web browser has gained additional momentum and passed Mozilla Firefox to secure the spot for the second most popular web browser in the world. Internet Explorer still has the biggest stake in the browser market but their value continues to drop, although in November it has plateaued a bit, probably due to IE9 which so far is the best of the IE versions.

Chrome now syncs your extensions, apps and has added profiles

This is a funny story, well mostly for me but i’ll share. I use Chrome daily and for the most part have switched over all my activities to Chrome, although I still enjoy using Firefox from time to time and am a bit forced to use IE to cross-check coding and to see what other users see, since IE is still used globally.

Google Plus blocks IE7 users while China blocks Google Plus

I am still going through all the in’s and out’s of Google+ since it launched, learning everything, experimenting, etc. One thing I just learned as I was testing some code across browsers was that G+ is not supporting Internet Explorer 7.

This is very cool. Google has something called Chrome Experiments where developers are experimenting with Chrome using Javascript, HTML5, WebGL and other coding languages to create some really cool stuff.  For example, my favorite - Google Gravity.  Try it out for yourself here.

HTML5 gets a logo

Today W3C unveiled the brand new (currently unofficial) logo of HTML5.

HTML5 is the next version of HTML that is getting a lot of media recently, most notably for moving away from flash video support to HTML5 video support.  As I previously discussed here about IE being the ‘leader’ of HTML5 support, HTML5 is still years away from being fully released and supported by all modern browsers.

Google Body Browser

Google Labs is introducing a new tool for users called Google Body Browser.  No, this is not made for the TSA ;P  It is a new browser experience from Google that you can use to explore the human anatomy via your web browser.

It’s still in Beta testing, so I came across a couple of bugs but overall, it seemed to work well and seems revolutionary in learning the human anatomy in a new way vs. traditional text book or web paginated imaging.
