Almost all of us arises occasionally the need to make screenshots of a web site. To achieve this, we have plenty of options, but one of the most comfortable is usually using any extension of browser like Smartshot, the plugin for Chrome that we spoke below.
With Smartshot we can not only take screenshots but can also work on them before storing. The capture functionality is quite similar to that offered by other extensions as it gives us the option of capturing an entire page or selected area. At this point to emphasize its deferred capture makes a screenshot 3 seconds after pressing this option, which can be useful in some situations.

I have no objection to working with new tabs open in any browser. I personally do not pass a 8-10 tabs open at the same time, among which I’m moving from one to another according to my need. But for other users who do not have as much workload in the browser, could use an extension for Chrome as NiftySplit.
What makes this extension is to divide browser window into two parts automatically. We know that we can simply open another browser instance and size them manually to get the same result set, but it does NiftySplit automatically, from any link we want to differentiate from other content.

In some web sites we are interested in, the information we want to see, is surrounded by a multitude of ads, images, flash animations and videos. In these cases, it is sometimes larger content not relevant that what really interests us, making it more difficult to understand and find the information that we seek.
There are some extensions that can help highlighting only the main content of the page, leaving aside everything else. Among them is Text Mode for Chrome, a new extension to load only what we see and nothing more. Continue reading “Text Mode for Chrome: displays the websites without any image”
Onefeed is one of those extensions for Chrome we can not miss if our social life is very active network. What makes Onefeed is to unify all access to our social networks and RSS feeds, in one place, through a well structured interface, although by default only connects us directly to Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Instagram, most used social services.
Once we’ve added the extension to Chrome, will open a new window so we can choose which social network we connect. Using a Speed-dial (reminiscent of Opera), we will have at the fingertips all the social sites, to which we can add other links as our Google Drive or Dropbox account.

What a surprise have been responsible for the security of Spotify to restrict by any means that users do not download music, whether intentional or accidental. And it is that in the last few hours have been found Chrome extension that allowed downloading MP3 from Spotify music, with a premium account.
The “invention” was the work of a Dutchman named Robin Aldenhoven, who wanted to expose the flaws in the Spotify security system, not encrypt your files in the proper way and not turn any DRM from the player. Downloadify, application created by the programmer, did not last long in the Google store, and it was removed immediately.
