Put the Reader link back in Gmail with a Chrome extension

Google made a minor tweak to the Gmail navigation links recently -- moving Photos into a more prominent spot and Reader into the More drop-down. While I wasn't particularly concerned (I've got Firefox hotkeys wired to most of my bookmarks for fast mouse-free access), the change created quite a stir on Twitter. But as is usually the case, enthusiasts who don't want to accept changes on their...

Chrome to Phone for Android adds history display

Google's Chrome to Phone tandem is a great way to share Web links from your desktop to your Android device, and it's just gotten a bit better. Today's update brings a more useful start screen to the Android app, which now displays your previously sent links grouped by when you sent them. You'll see a today group, your last seven days, last month, and older. We'd like to see a daily breakdown...

BridgeURL lets you send a tour of several websites in one link

Sometimes you may want to send someone a whole list of websites to look at. Maybe you even want them to look at the sites in a given sequence, like when you're sharing the results of a search for a new car or a vacation spot. BridgeURL is a fairly elegant service that accepts a list of links, and spits out a single bit.ly link. When you click this link, you're taken to the first website on the...

BitDefender safego protects you from Facebook dangers

Facebook's immense popularity has made it a prime target for cybercriminals. Malicious (or 'poisoned') links, spam, and malvertising are all too common -- and it's far too easy for an unsuspecting Facebook user to be taken in. Hey, if one of your friends sends you a link to what seems like a hilarious picture, there's a decent chance you'll click through, right? ... And that's how the bad guys...

Google Bookmarks now lets you create and share lists

Hey, do you remember Google Bookmarks? I didn't either, until I heard the news that Google Bookmarks now has the ability to create and share lists of links. After a moment of confusion, I realized that Google Bookmarks wasn't a new product, and I started playing with lists. They're actually quite useful! On top of creating and sharing, you can import all of the bookmarks from a friend's list...

8 reasons to love furries, and more, on Linkbait Generator

I'm going to file this one under "social commentary", actually. Linkbait Generator is a pretty interesting tool I found over at the always-interesting MakeUseOf. It does one thing, and does it quite well: generate titles for blog posts that will probably get clicks. For some reason, people seem to be obsessed with lists. If you go to Digg's "Popular" page, you are sure to find at least one...

Three Goo.gl powered Chrome extensions hit the Gallery

While Google may not have intended their new Goo.gl short URL service to be used anywhere other than the Google Toolbar, I doubt they're too upset about developers figuring out how to tap into it. Three extensions have already popped up in the Google Chrome Extensions Gallery which offer Goo.gl truncation in your browser. ChromeMUSE, which I've been using for a little over a week, pushed an...

Tweetmixx helps you see what's hot on Twitter

As Twitter becomes more popular, it's become increasingly difficult to stay on top of links, content and stuff you're friends and followers are sharing. Made from the same guys behing Mixx, a Digg-style website that features user submitted content that you can vote on, Tweetmixx is designed to make it much easier to share and view links and content found in tweets. After logging in with your...

A big list of ways to make Tiny URLs

With all the URL shortening sites that have been popping up lately -- and even services that let you make your own -- I thought it would be a good idea to take a look back at the link-shrinkers we've covered in the past here at Download Squad. Some of them are legitimately useful, while some of them are complete novelties that you'd only break out as a joke. You'll also have to forgive some of...

At the Top of Google

I haven't met two small business owners in a meeting where one doesn't ask how to get his or her site to the top of the Google search results list. There are transparent reasons for wanting to be first: you get more clicks, your business seems important, clicks convert into business, and your Internet traffic can skyrocket. What's the magic formula for getting to the top? There is no magic formula...

Google Analytics adds more tracking features

Google has quietly announced some new features for Analytics, its web tracking tool. They seem small, but these additional tracking features will provide much greater insight into what is going on your website since you can't always peer over visitors' shoulders to watch. The updates include: Site Search Tracking - Users will now be able to tell exactly what keywords visitors searched for on...

Begin your web sessions at Homepage Startup

Homepage Startup tries to set itself apart from a stampede of web 2.0 start pages by focusing on the fact that the majority of web users regularly visit no more than a handful of websites. The concept is pretty straightforward (if not exactly original): set this site as your homepage and when your browser window opens you have instant access to your favorite search engine and a grid of links to...

Every day we link to dozens, if not hundreds of blogs, software companies, news articles, and other web sites here at Download Squad. And most of those sites post links to other web pages. Walk2Web is a tool that can help you finds new web sites by following the outbound links from a single page. For example, if you type in "www.downloadsquad.com," a few dots will pop up on the screen...

Map of the Blogosphere

Nielsen's Matthew Hurts recently drafted a nifty graphic showing the blogosphere in links. This picture is based on an examination of six weeks of blogosphere data. Each little white dot represents a blog. The bigger white dots represent blogs with more incoming and outgoing links, while the smaller dots are blogs with fewer links. The green lines represent one-way links from one blog to another,...
