webOS 3.0 beta now available to developers

With the webOS 3.0 SDK available for almost two months, HP has now given developers access to a beta download of webOS 3.0 -- which powers the upcoming TouchPad and will likely ride along on HP desktops and laptops in the form of an emulator. Right now, the webOS 3.0 beta is only available to Early Access developers. The crew at PreCentral states that HP appears to have eased up on access re...

Surfy for Windows Phone 7 is a free, tabbed Web browser

While you wait patiently for Microsoft to deliver Internet Explorer Mobile 9 to your Windows Phone 7 device, you may find yourself wanting for a slightly more feature-filled browser that you can use right now. Surfy is a nice option that's worth checking out, introducing several features you won't find in the stock WP7 browser. Surfy offers tabbed browsing, a fullscreen mode, and orientation lo...

Firefox Home Dash experiment offers a radical new UI for your Mozilla browser

It's a little hard to describe what Firefox Home Dash is -- beyond the basics, anyway. It's an experimental add-on born from Mozilla's Prospector project which replaces (or removes) nearly all of the Firefox UI. You're left with a title bar, scrollbar, the big orange button, and not much else. The goal is to get the browser out of the way and just give you the Web. Hover over the Firefox logo ...

Sleipnir Web browser for iOS brings tabbed browsing, bookmark sync

If you're on the hunt for a Web browser for your iPhone or iPad with a few additional features, Fenrir -- the company that develops the Sleipnir browser for Windows -- has its first mobile version for iOS [App Store link]. Sleipnir's most interesting feature is its rich tabbed browsing support. In addition to a thumbnailed tab strip along the bottom edge of the browser window (which only displ...

Search your Google Chrome tabs with Spot

I don't typically browse with more than a handful of open tabs, but every now and then I wind up with a vast forest of them. When that happens, it's easy to lose that one tab you're actually looking for. No worries, however, with the Spot extension for Google Chrome. Just click the magnifying glass icon and start typing something you remember about the page and Spot quickly returns a list of m...

Tab sync code on its way to Google Chrome

As I've mentioned before, there are a few pieces missing from the Google Chrome browser sync puzzle: passwords, history... and your currently open tabs. Password sync code has actually been in the Chromium code for some time, and the rest of the missing functionality will no doubt be added -- it's a vital part of Google's "your platform everywhere" attitude toward Chrome browsing. Today the un...

Video: a look at Google Chrome's upcoming in-tab options menu

Not too long ago, Google moved the Chrome bookmarks manager from a separate application window into a tab. Recently, work began on moving Chrome's options menu into a tab as well. While it's still not totally functional, chrome://options has come a long way in a short amount of time. For the most part, all the UI elements are now active. Certain sub-menus have yet to be activated (like font se...

Start! is a sexy, functional new tab page for Google Chrome

While the built-in default is functional, you might be looking for a way to add some sizzle to your Google Chrome new tab page. Look no further than Start!, a recent addition in the Chrome Extensions Gallery. Your frequently used bookmarks will appear on the right-hand side of the page, while the central portion is reserved for your recent additions and those in the "other" folder. Start! al...

Four visual tab switching options for Google Chrome

One feature I like being able to toggle in Firefox is tab thumbnails -- not the ones on the Windows 7 taskbar, mind you. I'm talking about in-browser thumbnails which get displayed when switching tabs. Chrome OS has that snazzy, Cover Flow-style switching interface, but that's not part of the Chrome browser on other OSes. There are, of course, options available in the Google Chrome Extensions ...

Firefox 4 nightly build debuts App Tabs

Google Chrome has been my default browser for quite some time, but I've got to admit... I like what I'm seeing so far in Firefox 4, and the tweaks just keep on coming. One recent addition which has been talked about for some time is the option to create App Tabs. Firefox 4's App Tabs look pretty much like a pinned tab in Google Chrome. For now, an App Tab appears to simply force a tab to the l...

Sort, order, and switch tabs with the compact Tab Manager for Google Chrome

Looking for nice, minimal tab manager extension for Google Chrome? Have a look at -- what else -- Tab Manager. It's perfect for the number of tabs I usually have open (fifteen or less) but it may not be quite so well-suited to those of you who have dozens of tabs open simultaneously. Tab Manager only displays favicons and there are no tooltips to display a tab's title -- which make things a bit...

Trash Can extension adds better tab reopening to Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a great Web browser, but it's got a few shortcomings. Tops on my list are the bare bones download manager and its crappy tab reopening ability. No, I don't want to right-click and reopen five tabs just to get back to the one Web page that I want reopened. I want choice! Give me a drop down menu that lets me choose from a selection of recently closed tabs -- like Opera does! ...

Xmarks now syncs your open tabs everywhere

Xmarks is an excellent tool for maintaining the same set of bookmarks in all your web browsers -- on all your computers. It works with Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome and in addition to your bookmarks they've recently been busily adding tab sync support. Today they've announced on the official Xmarks blog that your open tabs are now available anywhere. That includes places where y...

Get Google Chrome's in-tab bookmark manager on your New Tab page

Sebastian and I were chatting about Google Chrome earlier today when I mentioned something that I wanted to be able to do: pull up the new tabbed bookmarks manager when I open a new tab. Now...I haven't coded a lick in more than a decade, but it looked like this would be easy enough to hack in via an extension. Seb agreed that it looked like a pretty trivial task, and he decided to give it a g...

Customize the Windows 7 task switcher with Alt + Tab Tuner

I've never made the jump the the more modern, 3d-style task switching provided by win+tab on my system. Alt+tab works just fine for me, though now that I've got a larger display on my desk at home I would like larger thumbnails. Alt + Tab Tuner makes that tweak as easy as moving a slider. Margins, spacing, and icon position can also be adjusted, and Tuner can also change the transparency level...
