comment Sync Firefox and Chrome passwords?
Using Auto-Type. Hit Ctrl-Alt-A to send this sequence: username{Tab}password{Enter} to the active window. It matches the title of the active Window with the title of your entries in Keepass.

comment What's the new URL for a Google Images “Quick Search” bookmark in Firefox?
They must be rolling out the changes, because images.google.com/images?q=%s still works for me. Thanks for the heads up.

comment Prevent all scripts, images and file downloads on unsafe sites
I looked around the WOT site and it doesn't look like there's a way to retrieve the list of blacklisted sites. You might want to request this feature for the WOT extension.

comment What are the most useful bookmarklets for a superuser who do not have extension support?
Thanks for the Shortwave pointer. For those who can't or don't want to host a text file, shortmarks.com provides a similar service that lets you customize your commands. (Full disclosure: I created Shortmarks)

comment How to add a custom search engine to Firefox?
@Jed Daniels You can add searches manually, but I agree, in Chrome they aren't nearly as user friendly or featureful as in Firefox. Chrome's weak support was one of the reasons I created an alternative to built-in custom search engines - it's at shortmarks.com if you want to check it out.

comment Searching a single term from Firefox address bar
"Therefore Firefox (and probably all other programs) will always consider one-word addresses as domain names." Chrome doesn't, which lets you use single-word searches with your preferred search engine.

comment Does IE have an equivalent of keyword bookmarks?
You're probably looking at the default set of bookmarks for users who aren't logged in. Login with a Google account to modify the list.

comment Is there a Google Chrome extension that acts like Firefox's keyword quicksearch bookmarks?
There's a bug open to sync search engines in chrome: code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=15548 Until it's resolved, you could use Shortmarks, a service I created to be able to use custom searches in all browsers: shortmarks.com

comment Windows: Detecting which IR remote keys are pressed
I saw your link to my site in the referrer logs and just checked the first link. It's not broken, but goes directly to the AutoHotkey script that shows the keyboard. Just wanted to clarify.

comment In Opera 11, how can I set up shortcuts to switch to specific tabs?
@gphilip I tried to use it as my primary browser, but it had a few too many quirks. I still keep track of their updates and am hopeful :)
