When you’re browsing around, do you ever wish you could change the colors or fonts used on a website? If you’re using the Chrome or Firefox web browsers, you can!
There is a browser extension named “Stylish” that will let you apply different styles to various websites. Anyone familiar with CSS can create new styles, but everyone can use them.
After you install Stylish, you just browse the web like normal. When you’re viewing a website that you want to change the appearance of, you click the Stylish browser extension button and enable styles or click “find more styles for this site” which will take you to a website Userstyles.org where a lot of custom styles have been shared. Find a style that’s more appealing to you. After all, a website doesn’t have to look the same for everybody.
Install Stylish for Chrome
Install Stylish for Firefox
Visit Userstyles.org to find custom website styles
How do you disable your chrome extensions, temporarily, then re-enable them? With an extension of course!
You can install it from the Chrome Store: Disable Extensions Temporarily
I personally have a lot of chrome extensions enabled but from time to time need to disable them all. However, I also need to be able to re-enable them and I don’t want to go one by one and click check-boxes. I just want to be able to temporarily turn off my chrome extensions with one click and then when I’m ready to turn them all back on, click again.
I found some decent extensions available, but not an exact fit. So, I scratched my own itch and made a new chrome extension that disables all chrome extensions with one click and, even better, remembers which extensions where previously enabled and will re-enable them again with just one click. Re-enabling only previously disabled extensions was key for me, because I have some extensions installed that I toggle on and off individually from time to time and after temporarily disabling extensions I don’t want to simply turn on all chrome extensions, I want to just turn on previously disabled extensions.

All songs on this list were hand picked. During the dance portions of our wedding reception there were additional songs played, however these are the official songs. This playlist will always remind us of our wonderful day. For those of you who celebrated with us, thank you again!
For those of you who are searching for wedding songs to add to your playlist, we think there are some great gems on this playlist that we didn’t find on other websites that list wedding songs. Waltz Across Texas by Willie Nelson was an easy pick as our first dance, being Texans, however if you need a different wedding waltz we’d suggest: Irish Waltz (our Father/Bride & Mother/Groom dance song) or maybe Come Away With Me by Norah Jones (a little too slow for us) or Could I Have This Dance by Anne Murray (our last dance).
I’m a huge Beatles fan, so All You Need Is Love was perfect for our Bride & Groom Reception Introduction Song. Being fans of The Wedding Singer Movie, we had Grow Old With You played during our cake cutting. For the bouquet toss Hit Me With Your Best Shot played while the ladies got their elbows out. I selected Let’s Get It On for the Garter Toss, which set the mood perfectly for a good show! Johnny Cash’s version of Memories Are Made Of This was a nice touch for the Anniversary Dance.

I created a very simple Chrome extension, jsFiddle Player, that allows you to save the combined CSS, JS & HTML output of a jsFiddle. I personally wanted an easy way to download the resulting rendered web page.
jsFiddle is a great tool, hopefully you find jsFiddle Player to be a helpful Chrome extension.
Cite Marker is a Chrome browser extension that puts a twist on browser bookmarking. When bookmarking a web page if you’re trying to save a reference back to a quote or snippet, more so than the entire content of a page, then Cite Marker can help.
Built in browser bookmarking uses the web page’s generic title to identify the page being bookmarked. Cite Marker uses the text you highlight instead. And yes, you could type in your own title for the bookmark, if you’ve got nothing better to do with your time and would rather paraphrase the content that you find valuable enough to bookmark.
Also, by using the text you highlight to mark the source your bookmarks become a lot easier to retrieve, especially if you use the bookmark search feature. You can also create multiple marks for the same page.
It’ll even let you tweet out what you’re marking, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Check it out on the Chrome Web Store
Urtak is a nifty little tool. It’s free and I must say can be a little bit addictive.
I’ve created a simple feedback collection for Buying Concert & Sports Tickets Online
Scope it out here!
I really like Google Plus, compared to Facebook, but I’ll use both and it will take forever for G+ to get close to having the same number of users as FB. Anyhow, if you’re looking for an invite to Google Plus here you go: https://plus.google.com/i/VoUTzfrQwwM:bejfOlAcxD8
I just want to say, with some time and continuous updates I can see Google Plus replacing my WordPress blog. Especially since I don’t blog very often anymore Seriously though, if I could CNAME over to my G+ and customize the theme and CSS I’d be in business. In the meantime I’m sticking with the awesome WP, but hear me now.. G+ isn’t an FB killer, but perhaps it’s the WordPress killer!
Are you stoked about the 2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament? Are you a Facebook user? If you answered yes to both of these questions.. you should give yourself a cookie Actually, what you should do is take your March Madness and go play the BracketStar NCAA Basketball Brackets Contest. It’s a Facebook exclusive March Madness Bracket app.
You can visit the official BracketStar site to learn more: http://bracketstar.com or you can just go add it now on Facebook: https://apps.facebook.com/basketball-brackets/
Here’s a printable March Madness Bracket
It has a simple, but nice interface. You can add the app to your Facebook account now, but you won’t be able to make your bracket picks until after the official Selection Sunday show, when the 64 (plus 4) teams are determined. By the way, the Mens Final Four will be played in Houston this year and as always you can count on TicketCity.com to have tickets for all of the March Madness
If you’re wondering why I’m singling out this particular March Madness Bracket contest, over all the others I could just as easily blog about, well it’s because I helped build this one! I worked with Nathan to begin building what we think could become a killer, must have Facebook Bracket App. Perhaps not, but still it was fun to work on and we learned a lot, even though we had to keep cutting the project scope and we didn’t get nearly all the features we’d love to see it include. There’s always next year
If you’ve used Gmail Manager for Firefox but have been looking for the equivalent on Chrome, or if you’re just looking for a chrome extension to manage multiple Gmail and/or Google Apps email accounts, then you’re in luck. The maker of Gmail Manager for Firefox hasn’t written a port for Chrome, but there is at least 1 very good Chrome extension for managing multiple gmail accounts as well as multiple google apps email accounts.
After trying a few, the one I’ve really come to like the best is Simple Gmail Checker. The interface isn’t exactly like Gmail Manager for FF, but you might actually like it better. It’s not the most downloaded gmail add on for chrome, but it probably should be. That is, if you have multiple gmail accounts and/or google apps email accounts. So, here’s my shout-out to another extremely helpful chrome extension!
Gmail Checker Plus is a decent chrome extension for multiple accounts, but it has problems with multiple addresses from the same domain. This makes the add-on worthless if you actually monitor more than 1 email address on a domain. Nice try, better than nothing, but Simple Gmail Checker handles this scenario flawlessly!
If you’re looking for an add-on to manage multiple gmail and google apps accounts with Firefox then Gmail Manager is the way to go!
tesla motors has some slick vehicles and post IPO investors have made some bank. however, as much as i’d like to have one of their rides, the prices aren’t yet practical. that is very likely to change for all electric car manufacturers if Better Place succeeds.
foreign oil independence for the USA might be closer than imagined before, but don’t be surprised if the Chinese beat us to it. in the meantime Shai Agassi is working to make our lives a better place. not by simply making the world ‘greener’ but by making automobiles BETTER, FASTER, CHEAPER and AS CONVENIENT AS PETRO BASED CARS TODAY.
his approach is to use batteries the same way we use fuel (petro). this might not unique, but actually tesla and most other electric car makers take the approach of using batteries the way we currently use “fuel tanks” which is not better, faster, cheaper or as convenient as petro based cars today.
here’s a good Charlie Rose interview with Shai Agassi of Better Place
