With the latest update, the Chrome development team decided to implement a convenient function before being developed on the management of the page “New Tab”.
So when we open a new tab in the browser in question’ll display a screen similar to that in the video created to demonstrate precisely this new intriguing feature.
The only problem is the activation, it should be performed in fact a small change in the settings of Chrome itself by adding the string “-new-new-tab-page” in the dialog box that appears, enter in the properties of any link to the browser in question (specifically to be added to the end of what is written in the “Target”).

I refer to the Problem Steps Recorder developed directly from Microsoft in order to capture a series of screenshots that will guide to solving our specific problems:
Steve, back to Cupertino
Posted by Ivan Transfer to Apple, Curiosity, News on 06 30th, 2009 | 1 Comment
When you think a person worthy of all his admiration, his gestures and his words are often cited as examples (positive). Anyone who knows me knows of my almost complete reverence for Steve Jobs. To reinforce this my personal opinion, today, news arrives very pleased: as promised, Steve seems to have returned to his duties in Cupertino.
Thus, at least, to said Apple and reported by CNN. An Apple spokesman (spokesman), Steve Dowling, said told the press:
Steve Jobs is back to work. He is at Apple a few days a week and working from home the other days. We’re glad to have him back.
Michael Jackson dies: the reactions of the Network
Posted by Ivan Transfer in Facebook, News on 06 27th, 2009 | 2 Comments
When the other night the shuddering world to know the fate of one of the most important and controversial icons of the last thirty years, I was out and I was not following direct the course of events. Newly installed to your PC, though, I felt a feeling of “heaviness” during navigation, a slowdown not too obstructive, but consistent. Unaware of why I kept browsing chatting until a friend told me the news of the moment: Michael Jackson, 50, was tragically killed.
It ‘was a special occasion, for social networks: a call to the endurance test, I would say. Twitter, already agitated because of the situation in Iran, has faced collapse: Biz Stone (Twitter Co-founder) has stated that after the release of the news, the message flow has touched figures of 5000 per minute. Any interruption of service, thankfully.

Electrolysis, a project to make the Firefox browser, multi-process
Posted by Ivan Transfer in Browser, Firefox, News on 06 23rd, 2009 | 4 Comments
The name of the project, developed by Mozilla and is involving development staff, already suggests the idea of splitting. On this idea, in a nutshell, it is based the aim of Electrolysis: make Firefox has a multi-process structure (multi-process). One feature, however, already stable in other browsers, such as Chrome and IE 8.
What are the advantages of a multi-process technology? It ‘obvious: each card (tab) is considered by the system as a single process. Three tabs, therefore, constitute the three processes. At the time, however, each of the Firefox window is considered process, but within a window can display many cards.
If you were to introduce a crash in one tab (because, perhaps, of a slowdown or a broken plugin), with the current system, the application would become critical in the complex. On the contrary, thanks to a multi-process management, should any issues arise on a single card, this could be dealt with within the task manager without affecting the others.

Steve Jobs underwent a liver transplant
Posted by Ivan Transfer in Apple, News on 06 20th, 2009 | 5 Comments
The news, dear readers, is anything but fresh. The revelation, however, is today, by the division of the Tech Wall Street Journal: “Jobs Had Liver Transplant” is the title of the article appeared in the morning. It seems that Mr. Apple has suffered, therefore, a liver transplant about two months ago. Nevertheless, it seems willing to officially return by the end of this month.
The clinical situation of Jobs, which has become a matter of public interest, has already been compromised, in 2004, from a rare form of pancreatic cancer, from which it recovered two years later. The therapies to which it is subjected, however, have been responsible for the development of a particular type of diabetes, in turn due to the “heart hormone” for which Steve has left the guide social five months ago.
