Increase the Size of All Images on Reddit with One-Click

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

I haven’t played around with Reddit very much yet; according to my kids, that makes me somewhat of a dinosaur …

If you like to hang out on Reddit you have probably been exposed to the site’s vast image and photo section. In fact, if you are new to Reddit, the two image groups pics and funny are listed prominently in Reddit’s default selection of groups that may be of interest to you.


Google Don’t be Evil Bookmarklet Released

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

It will be interesting to see how many folks start using this, and if it changes the way that people optimize their sites for search engines …

Google has a distinct advantage that other companies on the web do not have. Google Search at the time of writing controls more than 50% of all search on the web, which can go up in some countries to more than 90%. Google uses this to their advantage by promoting their own services in search. And while nearly every other company would certainly do the same if they were in Google’s position, it is quickly turning the company’s image of being an impartial search provider upside down.


Microsoft Translator Bookmarklet

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Machine translation (as they used to call it) has been around for at least 20 years now, but 90% of the time, the results still sound like something written by a 3rd grader.

While Google Translate is probably the most popular online translation service, there are others that may be less popular but are often equally good when it comes to translating contents into other languages.


Bookmarklets for Annoyances on the Internet

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

I like the general idea behind this, but it also seems like one would need a lot more than 20 bookmarklets to address every available type of annoyance …

The Internet is full of annoyances. That does not mean that you encounter them on every website you visit, but chance is relatively high that you stumble upon sites regularly that have features that you find annoying.

Here’s another program that lets you save YouTube videos …

Have you experienced the following situation? You just received an email or message from a friend that contained a link to a funny must see video. Problem is, you do not have time to watch it right now. What do you do? Most users wait until they have the time, some may even bookmark the video so that they can access it easier at a later time.


Turn Web Pages into PDF Documents

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

I haven’t tried this particular program myself, but the ability to distill a web page into PDF format does come in handy. That said though, there are a lot of different ways to transform a web page into a PDF document …

You sometimes may want to save a web page, either for archiving or reference purposes, or because you like to read the page on another device or at a time without Internet connection. While it is possible to save web pages as HTML files it is often considered to be a weak option, as you will end up with lots of different files and not a single document.

A pdf document on the other hand includes everything, which makes it easier to transfer it to other devices or send it to work colleagues or friends.
