Easily Download & Launch Sysinternals & Nirsoft Utilities With WSCC

You may already know that different programs and their associated services running in the background consume system resources, adversly effecting the overall performance of your computer.

February 27, 2013 at 07:25PM Almost all online services out there require you to register an account with them before you can start using them.These accounts often hold a lot of information on you, including your name, email address, gender, phone number, address etc., with some services such as Steam also containing your financial information such as a credit card details. If you decide to stop using a service, you no longer need an account on it.

Recycle Bin For Chrome Remembers Closed Tabs, Let’s You Search And Restore Them

Recycle Bin For Chrome Remembers Closed Tabs, Let’s You Search And Restore Them

February 27, 2013 at 04:35PM Google Chrome has a built in feature that saves “recently closed” tabs as a list. Using the recently closed list you can quickly open a webpage that was recently closed or accidentally closed. The “recently closed” list of tabs in accessible from Google Chrome’s new tab page. If you have accidentally closed a bunch of tabs in Google Chrome and want to open closed tabs in Chrome, you can use the “recently closed” option from the new tab page.But often times, I don’t find Chrome’s recently closed tab list fullfilling my needs. I use a lot of browser tabs in Google Chrome, cycling through a sea of tabs, opening new ones, closing old ones; this goes on until I feel the need of re-opening a browser tab that I closed long back. Unfortunately, Google Chrome’s built in “recently closed” tabs feature saves the last 10 tabs that I closed, which I find inadequate.If you want Google Chro…

Every element of the world is either based on or in some way related to numbers and mathematical calculations. Behind every piece of technology including your computer and smartphone, there are millions of calculations going on every second.

Windows has its own calculator with basic arithmetic and scientific calculations, but it doesn’t quite cut it for more complic…

How to Fake your Location in Google Chrome

How to Fake your Location in Google Chrome

February 22, 2013 at 11:32PM Sometimes websites may request access to your location so that they can serve more relevant information. For instance, if you are looking for a gas station, a maps website may use your current geographic location to display stations that are near your place. Google Chrome will only share your location if you click Allow. How Browsers Determine your LocationEarlier, websites would use the IP address to determine your approximate location but with the HTML5 Geolocation API, web browsers can more accurately detect your location using data from GPS, Wi-Fi networks, cell towers, Bluetooth and the computer’s IP address. If you agree to share your location, the browser will send these details to Google Location Services for estimating your location which is then shared with the requesting website.To give you an example, open the Where am I app in your browser, allow it to use your location information and the app shoul…
