Dragging Files and Tabs in Safari


 
Just like any other Mac applications, Safari supports dragging in files from the Finder or other applications such as iPhoto. If you just drag a file into a regular browser window, however, all it will do is display the file in a Safari window. The useful part comes when a website is asking for you to upload a file. Instead of clicking ‘Choose File’, you can drag the file you want to use and drop it directly on the button. A small green plus sign will appear next to your cursor, and the file is selected, no matter how deeply nested it is on your hard drive. This is a small thing, but it can save a lot of time if you have a file open in the Finder already before you upload it to a website.

  3. Zoom Out ::: Same method as above only use the 'ctrl' and '-' buttons on your keyboard instead.

Hide IP Address in Chrome


If you want to mask or hide your Internet protocol address, you can do so with a proxy server. Proxy servers are computers which connect you to the various Internet services that you require.

Google Chrome has various options to help set up your proxy server details for home browsing.

Instructions
  1. Find a proxy server to use. Proxy servers are typically subscription services that charge a monthly or weekly rate. You can find these by going to a list such as SamAir's Proxy List. Once you have subscribed to a proxy server, make a list of your details for connection.
  2. Open Google Chrome by clicking on "Start," "All Programs" and then Google Chrome. Click the Tools button on the task bar, and then click "Options." Click the "Under the hood" tab to launch advanced settings.
  3. Click "Change proxy settings," and then click "LAN settings."
  4. Click "Use a proxy server for your LAN" and then enter the IP address of your proxy server into "Address" and the "Port" to your given port address. Click "OK," and then "OK" again to finish setting up a proxy.

Google Chrome Tips & Tricks


Google released its Chrome web browser in 2008 to compete primarily with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla’s Firefox, and Apple’s Safari web browsers. Chrome uses a simple design. The layout is bare and uncluttered when compared to other web browsers. However, Google Chrome is actually a feature-rich browser. When making the switch to Chrome, take advantage of several Google Chrome tips and tricks to improve your browsing experience.

Browse Incognito

Google Chrome’s Incognito Browsing mode is similar to the “In-Private” browsing mode offered by other web browsers. Websites visited during an incognito browsing session are not stored in your history. Cookies are also not stored on your computer. Incognito browsing is perfect if you don’t want others to know what sites you’ve visited without deleting the entire browsing history. According to Google, Chrome’s incognito browsing mode does not protect against “malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys, surveillance by secret agents and people standing behind you.”

Use keyboard shortcuts

Chrome provides its users with a number of keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts allow you to easily access Google Chrome’s features, such as opening a new tab or window. Some common Chrome keyboard shortcuts include “Ctrl + N,” which opens a new window; “Ctrl + T,” which opens a new browsing tab; and “Ctrl + Shift + N,” which opens a new incognito browsing window. Pressing “Ctrl + Shift + T” opens the last closed tab. Pressing “Alt + F” opens the Google Chrome tools menu. Pressing “Ctrl” and “+” or “-“ zooms in or zooms out on the Web page.

Import Bookmarks and Browsing Data

If you’re ready to make the switch to Chrome, but fear losing all of your bookmarks, browsing data and saved usernames and passwords, you can import the data to Chrome from your old browser. To do so, click on “Tools” then “Options” and “Personal Stuff.” Select “Import Data” and choose your old web browser to import your data.

Try Custom Themes

If you find the default silver Google Chrome theme a bit bland, you can add a custom theme to enhance your browsing experience. Google works with numerous developers who have added custom themes to the Google Chrome theme pool. Open the “Tools” menu, select “Options” then choose “Personal Stuff” and “Get Themes” to browse the theme gallery. Select the custom theme you want and click “Apply Theme.”

Remove Page Thumbnails from Chrome


Google Chrome's new tab function defaults to thumbnails of the nine most visited web pages you have browsed. Many users love this feature as you can quickly return to the websites you most often visit. However, there are situations when you want to remove these most visited thumbnails from your Google Chrome new tab page. There are a couple different options you can use to make your browsing history on Google Chrome more private.

This article will help you to remove most visited thumbnails from Google Chrome.

Instructions
  1.  You should first make sure that your version of Google Chrome is current. Click on the wrench icon in the upper right hand corner of the browser. On the drop down menu you will see " About Google Chrome". This should be 3 items from the bottom. Click on this item. A window will pop up and automatically check for updates. If your version of Chrome is not up to date, the browser will download the latest version. You will need to restart the browser.
  2. Open the updated version of Google Chrome Browser. You should now see the "Remove thumbnails" link at the bottom left of the browser page. Click this link.
  3. Your page should now show each of the most visited web pages overlayed with an "X". As you click on each X, that page will be removed from your most visited history. If you accidentally delete a thumbnail from the most visited page, you can click "Restore all removed thumbnails" before clicking Done. When satisfied with the removed thumbnails, click Done.
  4. To make Google Chrome even more private, you can browse using Incognito Mode. This prevents Chrome from logging any of the sites you visit. While surfing using the incognito mode, your web activity will not be stored in the browsing history. Furthermore, downloads and any history of your downloaded content will not be recorded. Also, when the Google Chrome browser is closed, all new cookies will be deleted.
  5. To begin an Incognito Mode session, click on the tool icon in the upper right corner of Chrome's browser. Select the "New Incognito window" item. A new browser window will open that is clearly different. You will see the Incognito icon in the upper left corner. You are now browsing the web in privacy. Note that if you close this window and open another, you will have to go back into Incognito mode again.
