It is a know fact how useful the shortcut can be especial when you are trying to browser through different application or the websites. But to be honest a coin always has another side and same is with the computer shortcuts. They at time are so difficult to remember you end up using your mouse. But should their not be a way around and I was determined for the same. Especially some one like me who has keeps browsing, different website on Firefox. So I found something helpful that may be useful for all the readers. Firefox has an add-on called Customizable Shortcut version 0.5.8. from Tim Taubert. It does not requires you to restart the Firefox so once it is installed you are ready to add your own shortcuts to Firefox so that you can run the browser faster than before and without the mouse.

You can follow the following steps to create your own shortcuts. First step is to click on the tools and then go to the option. In order to open it with the shortcut you can use Alt+T and then “o”. This will bring the options menu and then please click on the one that says Shortcuts on the far right hand side. Once you click on it then you can modify any one the mentioned shortcut. Not only will it help you customize the short cut but will also help you speed up your work on the Firefox. But before you download this add-on please make sure you have also upgraded the version of the Firefox as it requires the latest version of the browser.  Once done with the shortcut you can use it but it will also work in case you upgrade the browser in future. Thus resolving the problem of remembering the short cut, as you can set them as per your choice, not only set them but you can change them back to anything else if you want. Any combination of shift, ctrl spacebar or any key you want. For example I have set ctrl+shift for a new tab as it is closer and more convenient for me to use.

Thus concluding with the note that your computer is fast but it can work much faster if it is give the required upgrade it requires from time to time. So we wish you all the best with browning computer with these additional benefits from this new add-on.

Google patches 30 Chrome bugs, adds Instant Pages

Before we start discussing about the updates of Chrome let’s try to look back at history and try to find out what is Google Chrome. Since the launch of Google Chrome on September 2, 2008 it has been growing with time. In December 11, 2008 when it was officially launched it had 1% of total market share. Thought it s believed Eric Schmidt never wanted to develop a new browser as he never felt of getting indulge in to Browser’s war. But Sergey Brin and Larry Page when showed him what their plans where he could not help but changed his mind.

With time Google Chrome has reached the 3rd Spot in the market with total market share of 23.16%. And it is believed is one of the most secured browser and not only faster but also more user friendly. And some of its advantage that has helped it to be more successful in such a short span of time is its flexibility. It can be used on MAC, Linux as well as Windows. Now with such a wide variety of presence it has been more prone to security risks. With inputs from its security team and also outside its security team, Google has been updating Chrome with the best possible updates. Google has a trend of releasing updates every six to seven weeks.  But this time the updates that have been released in response to the input received from outside of its security team are high on priority. Google has released a bundle of 30 updates together, out of which 23 Updates are either high or medium in risk level. Only seven of them are labeled as low. So our advice is if you happen to use Chrome please updates your browser because these updates are termed as second most serious updates in Google’s four step scoring system.

Most of these high risk updates are “Use-After-Free” bugs, which are believed to be used to prevent flaws related to injecting attack code. It is believed that Google paid $ 17,000 to 10 researchers who reported most of these vulnerabilities. With new releases few new features have also been added to the Chrome like Instant Pages. It is leant that it will not only reduce the time taken by you to open the website but will give you complete the freedom to chooses whether to keep the feature or not. If you feel like you can always opt out by going to Settings and then Advance and then uncheck the one that says Predict network action to improve page load performance. We would conclude with it. Hope the new feature of Chrome helps you to browse faster.

Apple’s Safari grows faster than Chrome in July

According to the postings of Apple’s safari last month, it observed the biggest increase as far as usage share is concerned in the consumer market. It left the nearest competitors like perennial champion chrome far behind in this game of popularity & the number of users. This was the latest declaration of Web metrics vendor Net Applications. It is just like winning the race in the market of internet in a very easy manner.

The chrome users are really in a surprise state. It took the shape of a gain game that turned out to play in the favor of the former one. After the tagging up of the specific browser with Apple’s revenue troika of Mac, iPhone and iPad the profit was unexpected & sky rocketed to the increase of nearly around 8.1% in the month of July this year. It is a kind of an unachievable record that it gained. May be the main reason for ir is the user friendly structure of the same along with some more features that turned out to be in favor of the users. You too will be very much astonished to hear that the monopoly of internet explorer is on the verge of extinction. It dropped by 53 percent that occurred from the early phase of January till July & August respectively.

The browser was in a defeated state that really amazed its users. This is the biggest decline that it had ever experienced. This performance in such a poor state of decline in popularity & uselessness continued at a steady rate for three months simultaneously along with some other traits that didn’t go in favor of the same. It is a prediction that it would fall at a steady rate of minimum fifty percent by the end of this year. It is a perfect matter of fact that Google Chrome was the only equipment that improved its general performance by growing & maintaining its general share by 13.5%. Although the performance was not at all credible with the 15 percent share on October last year. Similar was the case with two other very popular internet browsers, Mozilla’s Firefox and Opera Software’s Opera. The lost the usual place of popularity bearing a loss of nearly two tenths of its users along with some of the very long & huge problems still in the picture.  Firefox, which kicked off a rapid-release schedule in late June that will result in a new version every six weeks, now accounts for 21.5% of all browsers, more than three points down from its peak in November 2009.

Mozilla Shrinks Firefox’s Memory Appetite by 20%-30%

Mozilla’s Firefox 7, slate to liner during September, resolve be alive drastically sooner since of job finished plugging the memory leaks of the browser.  This was the statement of a company developer. “Firefox 7 applies a reduced amount of reminiscence than Firefox 6 (and 5 and 4): habitually 20% to 30% fewer, furthermore occasionally at the same time as much as 50% less,” Nethercote declared. “This way Firefox 7 is drastically fast and doesn’t crash easily, chiefly if you have a lot of websites unbolt next to once plus/or keep Firefox consecutively for a extensive time between restarts.” It has been the victim of criticisms since a long time. It was mainly due to the use of large capacity of RAM, & on the other hand not releasing the memory on closing the tabs respectively. It even caused some of the lock ups situations that sometimes led to the crashes.

This really made the user feel irritated. This is not for the first time but attempts have been made by Mozilla for eliminating these leaks. If we go back to the year 2008, it was quite a significant year for the same. Two companies came in the picture claiming that they are on the spree of constructing Firefox 3 that will gift the user with more consistency along with improved & more sophisticated memory handling techniques. It really gave the competitors a frosty nosed gesture. Sometimes the reputation of Firefox is claimed to be as a memory hog by cyber buffs. It was due to that reason Firefox was not able to perform according to the expectations & it regressed thoroughly. A large number of operations really made the system a very confusing application & some of the very aggressive traits that made this collection a super flop. Maximum of these characters were mainly effective in the first version of Mozilla, but failed in the latter half.

Consistence seemed to be the major & perhaps the main problem in this application. Next to what time the reminiscence come out to be in the reduced state, it turned out to be a result oriented & positive aspect.  Security is not an option.
