Stupid Windows Trick: just start typing to jump to a specific file in Explorer (Download Squad)

Dec 21st 2010 3:44AM I've been doing that since Windows 95. You can also do that in bookmarks and in Web forms dropdown lists. Just type the first letter of the option or bookmark you want and if it doesn't take you to the right one press that letter again and again until it shows you the right one.

Speed up Firefox page loading time without using a RAM disk (Download Squad)

Nov 19th 2010 12:08AM I tried this in Firefox 4.0 Beta 7. It worked fine until I tried watching videos at Megavideo. When I would close that tab the video would continue to play. Even if I loaded another video in another tab it would still continue to play. I had to restart the browser to get it to stop. Changing the browser.cache settings to their defaults made this problem disappear. I didn't try this at other video sites. So it could have just been a Megavideo problem.

I use an Asus G73JH with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

10+ handy Opera 11 extensions (Download Squad)

Nov 10th 2010 12:12AM I haven't seen one single Opera Extension that was worth installing. The are as worthless as Chrome Extensions.

As if that wasn't bad enough then there is the fact that Opera and Safari do not allow you to block Adware Tracking Cookies like most other browsers do.

Because of this both browsers are completely useless.

Firefox Throttle keeps your browser's bandwidth usage under control (Download Squad)

Jan 1st 2010 12:28AM If you live near a Cell Tower you should get Sprint Mobile Broadband. Then you don't need to throttle Firefox. I live 1/4 mile from one.

It's a little pricey but I have noting else to blow my wad on. :)


If you have the USB Modem attach it using the included cable and put the modem in a metal kitchen pan to boost the signal. Read the user comments here for more tips.

Apr 3rd 2009 10:21AM The average person only steals because it's illegal. It's just an act of defiance.

Google offers 1.5 million public domain books for your mobile phone (Download Squad)

Feb 8th 2009 11:51AM The Speak It addon for firefox would work well with this. I use it to read the news to me on Cnn.com while I'm working on my website.


But beware when you highlight the text for this addon to read watchout for long lines of ********** it will read everyone and drive you crazy. :)

Where's the Browser Love for K-Meleon? (Download Squad)

Sep 26th 2008 2:36AM Surely you jest? I can't think of one good thing to say about K-Meleon except that I had almost forgotten it existed until you mentioned it. Gee thanks. :)

Sep 26th 2008 2:29AM Pandora and Last.fm are junk anyway. I prefer live365.com and Shoutcast in Winamp
