Kindlebility sends Web pages from your computer to your Kindle

Kindlebility is a bookmarklet that can send any Web page you're viewing to your Kindle. Kindlebility will format the websites so that viewing them on the Kindle isn't a pain. Once you've set it up (more on that in a moment), Kindlebility only requires one click to use -- and the pages arrive on your Kindle in seconds. Before you use Kindlebility for the first time, you have to quickly set it...

SeaMonkey, Mozilla's all-in-one Internet suite, releases new beta

The SeaMonkey Project has released SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 3, a version that makes a lot of new functionality available to a wide audience for the first time. A lot of stuff has been added and tweaked since SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 hit the streets back in February, and we're now one step closer to the final release of version 2.1 of the integrated Internet app suite. SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 3 lets you...

Google +1 finally unveiled, probably not what you expected it to be

It's a big day for Google, what with the announcement that Kansas City (not that Kansas City, but the other one that's actually in Kansas) has been selected to be the lucky town to get wired up with Google Fiber -- but that's not all they've gone public with today. Their "+1" project, which has been the subject of conjecture for months, was finally unveiled as well. Google didn't exactly...

Google settles Buzz privacy case with FTC, apologizes

Google and the FTC have just announced that they've reached a settlement in the FTC's investigation of Google's privacy violations committed during the rollout of Google Buzz, the company's social network built inside of Gmail. One of the reasons Buzz never quite took off may have been the enormous backlash surrounding its launch, and Google's handling of Gmail users' privacy. The FTC claims...

Microsoft buys 666,624 IPv4 addresses from Nortel for $7.5 million

In times of a shortage, people tend to stockpile certain things. And with the looming exhaustion of IPv4 addresses, it's really no surprise that Microsoft jumped all over Nortel's stash of nearly 700,000 addresses when they became available for purchase. Nortel, of course, has been selling off what assets it can as the company battles through bankruptcy proceedings. Microsoft ponied up $7.5...

First Hollywood film made for the Internet premieres on YouTube

Now playing in the YouTube Screening Room, 'Girl Walks Into A Bar' is the 'first ever' Hollywood film created specifically for the Internet. Brought to you for free in partnership with Lexus, the Sebastian Gutiérrez-directed film is a comedy charting the events of a single night involving a seemingly unrelated group of people, including a desperate dentist, an undercover private...

Speedtest.net overhauled with new look, new features

Speedtest.net is pretty much the go-to site for quickly figuring out how fast (or slow) your connection really is and comparing the numbers your ISP boasts with what it actually delivers. And now it's got a new coat of paint and a couple of neat features. In brief: New UI: The map widget is much improved; it actually looks like a map now, and it's easy to see where you are. Smart...

Data from CIA shows massive Internet Explorer gain, and largest Firefox loss ever

The CIA has released new figures for the number of Internet-connected users around the world. Developing countries like India, China and Brazil have gained hundreds of millions of new netizens, helping Internet Explorer post its first market share gain since July 2010. It now sits at 56.77% of the market, up 0.77%. Firefox, which has always relied on its stronghold of Europe, has seen its...

Chinese government launches Panguso, all your search are belong to us

Not content with by far the largest cellular network in the world, state-owned China Mobile has joined forces with the state-owned Xinhua News Agency to create the state-owned search engine Panguso. Their new offering pits itself against the current incumbent, Baidu, which has 75% of the search market in China. The idea is that Xinhua, which is one of the world's largest news agencies, will...

Google Chrome beta update brings faster JavaScript, GPU acceleration, Web app backgrounding

Google's Chrome beta update brings with it a slew of goodies for the adventurous users who prefer slightly more cutting-edge features over tried-and-true stability. Version 10.0.648.82 hit the beta channel earlier today, and it affected just about every piece of the browser, from the settings interface to the rendering engine. First and foremost, the already-impressive V8 "Crankshaft"...

Ask DLS: What's your primary Web browser?

Competition is a good thing, and the browser arena has been a fierce arena for years now. There are at least four "major" browsers each vying for your attention, along with lots of smaller spin-offs (SRWare Iron or Flock, anyone?). While the browser usage charts we share from time to time show overall browser usage amongst the Web at large, Download Squad readers are not exactly the average...

Internet Explorer 9 Tracking Protection Lists not all created equal

Tracking Protection is Internet Explorer 9's kicked-up privacy protection system, a sort of evolution from IE8's InPrivate Filtering. And while there are now four lists posted on Microsoft's official site, they're not all designed to function the same way. ZDNet's Ed Bott took an in-depth look at all four, and what he found may surprise you. One list -- provided by TRUSTe -- does very little...

SeaMonkey 2.1 beta 2 introduces Sync, DoNotTrack, Personas and more

The SeaMonkey all-in-one Internet application suite is making steady progress to a 2.1 release, with beta 2 rolling off the presses yesterday. While they insist that the 2.1 beta 2 update is still 'intended for testers only,' it comes packing a fair few additions to the SeaMonkey armory bringing it more inline with current Firefox implementations. Here's what's changed since 2.1 beta 1: The...

Last blocks of IPv4 addresses allocated, exhaustion now imminent

This is just a quick note to say that, in a ceremonial event in Miami, the last five blocks of IPv4 addresses have now been handed out by IANA, a part of ICANN. Each of the five regional registries -- North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia -- now have only a few million IP addresses to allocate. IP address exhaustion will hit Asia first. With 24 million IP addresses used by APNIC...

Egypt blocks Internet access, BlackBerry and SMS as civil unrest continues

As civil unrest stretches across the country, Egypt has gone dark. The Egyptian government seems to have enforced a blanket Internet shutdown at the ISP level, in what is an unprecedented maneuver that has forced the country offline. If that wasn't enough SMS and BlackBerry services seem to be affected too, and there's even rumors of landlines and cellphone services being cut off. It's...
