The way YouTube safety mode works is via a browser cookie attached to the HTTP request. There are two basic ways to force it: you can force Chrome to send it via Group Policy/other management systems, or you can add it directly via a proxy (note: using a proxy also likely will require using policy management, to keep users from changing proxy settings). To ...

you can resolve this by installing an addon like Text Mode or Text-Only Mode. I personally prefer Text Mode. These addons block all images, video, flash content. You won't even have to click on stop... Text Mode makes all text grayscale while Text-Only Mode maintains the colors while loading the page. Either work well to ensure you don't consume a lot of ...

It was the proxy settings. Apparently somehow Firefox on this machine didn't understand how to use the system proxy settings ... but the symptoms were pretty weird. The router definitely blocks all http traffic on port 80 that doesn't pass through that server. So apparently for some sites firefox was correctly interpreting the system proxy config files, ...

Solved it by setting registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Desktop > FontSmoothing to value 1. Now the fonts look as in Microsoft Windows XP, sharper, clearer, readable (although they are not the same as in Linux, but still they are a lot more readable).

Okay, I found the answer at Stack Overflow: Why do Chrome and IE put “Mozilla 5.0” in the User-Agent they send to the server? (credit goes to joatis) This is basically a historical vestige retained for compatibility with certain (very) old websites. It turns out that in the old days, some websites would refuse to serve certain types of content (such as ...

the simplest solution ist to get two cheap wifi routers. the first has to be configured in client mode - that means it connects to the community wifi as if it was a computer/smartphone/whatever. If it is configured correctly you can plug your computer in via a ethernet and you will be assigned an ip address and redirected to the captive portal as if you ...

You need to spoof the devices MAC address with a computer running Linux or Mac OS X so that you can consent to the captive portal with your web browser. (A Live CD will do if you are not already using one of these operating systems.) Then, you can reconnect the device for as long as the provider caches the record.

Of the possible causes of all your browsers opening on their own, going to the home page, and redirecting back to the home page, viruses are the least productive direction to ...

One can mute a conversation and that will keep chat tabs from popping up on your Facebook page and will also turn off push notifications on your mobile as well. In short, you won't get any alerts or notifications whenever a new reply is written. You will still be able to see your friend's responses.

I suffered from the same problem in the last two weeks. CCleaner free solved the problem. I cleaned both Windows/Applications (including Chrome) using the default settings, and Registry. I have no clue what the reason was, but anyway, I'm happy now ;-)

I use the "RightToClick" add-in. When a page starts grabbing clicks or other keys like up or down arrow I click the icon in the extension toolbar and put an end to that.

You can archieve this using a simple shortcut. The easiest way to create one is to open your favorite webbrowser (I know Opera and Internet Explorer both support this, but Firefox and Chrome should too) and drag and drop the url to your desktop or other place on your harddrive. This file can then be copied to other locations, and if you doubleclick it, the ...
