MenuPages for Android arrives, full restaurant menus in tow

MenuPages -- the mobile app which lets you browse thousands of restaurant menus on your smartphone -- has finally come to Android. Remember, coverage is still limited to major U.S. centers -- but if you live in Boston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, South Florida, or Washington D.C. MenuPages is a must-have app for dining on the go. The app also displays other vital in...

aDeskbar is an all-in-one dock and menu panel for Linux

aDeskbar is a slick menu and dock app for Linux systems which offers a wide range of customization options. In addition to the familiar menu-based app launcher, aDeskbar also includes nice features like drawers (similar to OS X stacks) and widgets for quick actions like invoking a terminal, logging off, or shutting down your system. Visual options abound, too -- opacity, position, hover effects, ...

Add Send to Instapaper to your Google Chrome context menu

Instapaper is a great way to save all of those Web pages you encounter that you can't read right now. Their official bookmarklet is handy for adding items to your queue, but you have to click through to the page before you can utilize it. Wouldn't it be nice if you had the option of right-clicking a link to send a page to Instapaper instead? If Google Chrome is your browser of choice, the Send...

Free app lets you add and remove entries from your Send To menu

The Windows Send To menu can be incredibly useful. I most often use it to zap files to a USB flash drive, but it's also handy for emailing files and quickly burning files to CD (say, when I'm helping the RCMP retrieve video footage from surveillance DVRs). Still, it could be more useful if I was able to remove a few items and add some additional folder locations. Send To Toys is up to the task...

Context Menu URL Shortener for Google Chrome puts bit.ly sharing links close at hand

There's a big crop new extensions showing up which take advantage of Google Chrome's new context menu API, and that's great news for those of you who can't live without your right-click menu. You can see a pair of newer extensions in my screenshot -- and while I'm not certain I'll be using the tab switcher, Copy Short URL is probably here to stay. Just right-click a link and left-click and ...

Firefox Friday, a weekly round-up: Beta 4, Beta 5, Panorama, breaking add-ons and our Private Browsing habits analyzed

This week has produced some fantastic Firefox news. That's a good thing, but because we covered it all on Download Squad in a timely fashion, it leaves me with a bit of a problem: there's no new news to share with you. I've been left with producing a round-up for this week's Firefox column. I've never done a round-up before, but I'm sure it'll be good. I think I'm meant to take each nibble of n...

Firefox 4 beta 5 pre introduces two-column menu

Mozilla continues to refine the Firefox 4 interface as they soldier on through the beta testing process. Yesterday, nightly builds of Firefox 4 received a new menu layout (which you can see on the right side of the header image). More options are now available within two-click reach -- including bookmarks, downloads, add-ons, and private browsing. The new iteration adds visual cues to private ...

Remove Firefox 4.0's big, ugly, unmovable orange button

Update: this no longer works with more recent builds of the Firefox 4 beta. Please see our new post on how to move or remove the button. Yup, you're not alone: that orange button in the top left corner of Firefox 4.0 just won't move. Fortunately, with the help of a Neowin forum thread and a little hacking, I am now the proud owner of a see-through Firefox button that's in-line with my tabs!...

Using Google Chrome's bookmark menu? Get ready to kiss it goodbye.

It's entirely possible you didn't even know Google Chrome had a bookmark menu -- a compact drop-down to access your favorite websites which was a nice alternative to the bookmark bar. I've seen plenty of gripes in our comments on Chrome posts from users wishing there was one there... when it's been there for ages, hidden behind the --bookmark-menu flag. But now that you know about it, don't ge...

Here's a look at Google Chrome's new, simplified menu

No, you're right...there's nothing new in the image above. Right now, Google Chrome has two separate menu icons in its top right corner: the wrench menu for options and settings and the page menu for functions like zooming, dev tools, and copy/paste. A while back, I'd reported that changes were likely on the way, in the form of a single, unified menu. Google pitches minimalism as a central the...

Unified menu coming to Google Chrome

You may not use the page menu a heck of a lot in Google Chrome. Most of the functions listed there are easily accessed via a hotkey or aimed at developers, so the average user isn't likely to utilize the menu all that often. The wrench menu, on the other hand, is where all our configuration options lie -- as well as things like the history, download, and extensions pages. In truth, I barely no...

Latest Firefox nightly adds tab bar-cramping customization

Firefox 3.7's user interface has already undergone a number of changes, from the new theme to the addition of the tab-on-top option. In last night's build, Mozilla has added more customization options to the Firefox toolbars. You can now cram everything into your tab toolbar. Right-click and choose customize, and you're now able to drag-and-drop navigation buttons, the address bar and search b...

Context Menu Enhancer v2 adds even more useful stuff to your Windows right-click menus

I'm a right-click junky, and I shudder to think about using Windows without that handy little context menu at my disposal. What's even better is my menu after tweaking it with Context Menu Enhancer. The free program allows you to add loads of useful functions like copy and move to folder, open in Notepad, open an Admin command prompt, and even that God Mode shell folder everyone was buzzing ab...

What menu items get clicked in Firefox? Copy, paste, and bookmarks.

Mozilla's Test Pilot program has been busily gathering usage data from volunteers since the project first launched late last year. Now, that data is being used to help shape the future of Firefox. Developer Alex Faaborg has posted a Firefox menu bar heatmap -- which (in case you're not familiar with the term) shows the items users click on the most. So what items are the most used? Copy, past...

Right-click Extender for Windows 7 adds useful options to your context menu

The Windows right-click context menu is a tremendous time saver. When I introduce customers to it, they're typically amazed at how many tasks it can simplify. Want to add even more useful features to your menu? There are loads of apps which can help (like Open++ and Moo0 Right Clicker), and The Windows Club's Right-Click Extender is a good, easy-to-use option. It's not overloaded with t...
