comment How can I know the file size in bytes during downloading in Chrome?
Just as an aside: note that this actually starts the download. Also, this only works if the web server (correctly) provides those details. Some downloads might not show any size at all (when in progress), and a plugin won't fix that.

comment Is there a Dell E7450 with i7?
"I suppose I can get the program CPU-Z to see what I got." There you go.

comment Internet Explorer 11 remove frequent sites history
Please edit your question to make the title summarize your question. "I have a Win 7 IE 11 laptop" is really, really a bad title. Success!

comment Why would my computer suddenly refuse to open one particular website?
As an aside: did you investigate those odd-looking IP addresses? It might indicate that some malware is trying to route your network to their liking.

comment What (if anything) am I supposed to do when I receive a plain-text email recall notification?
I don't know Outlook, but it seems the question is: how? (As per "I am happy to permit the recall, as his message was sent in error. What action, if any, should I take?" from the question.)

comment It it possible for a MitM attacker to know when a browser has gone into incognito mode?
Ah, maybe you're just saying "If you're logged in to Chrome, in which case it will send your profile and browsing details to Google's servers, then a man in the middle might see that such data is no longer sent after starting Chrome's incognito mode." And then indeed you might have a point. (I still don't agree with many of the details you wrote, but that does not warrant a downvote then.)

comment It it possible for a MitM attacker to know when a browser has gone into incognito mode?
"Look up the word in Google"--ah, you're focusing on Google's name of this feature? I guess you missed the "unless applicable this question is browser agnostic" then. (And using Google to prove your point made me giggle, thanks. ☻) As for releases, as far as I know: profiles were introduced in Chrome 16, December 2011. Incognito mode has been available since the very first release in 2008.

comment It it possible for a MitM attacker to know when a browser has gone into incognito mode?
You don't need to go incognito to not sign into Chrome. You're mixing Google with incognito modes. It's unrelated. (And thanks for that downvote.)

comment It it possible for a MitM attacker to know when a browser has gone into incognito mode?
"by looking at the extra chatter the browser is making to home base"--uhh, where did you get that from? This is just false information.

comment It it possible for a MitM attacker to know when a browser has gone into incognito mode?
Nope. "If you don’t want [Google] Chrome to save a record" is not at all the same as "tell Google to not record which sites you've visited on their servers". Also, non-Google browsers also have incognito modes. (And, like @Sidney already commented: this does not answer the question.)

comment It it possible for a MitM attacker to know when a browser has gone into incognito mode?
"the main purpose of it is to tell Google to not record which sites you've visited on their servers"--why do you think that's the main purpose? (Even more: why do you believe incognito mode stops Google from profiling you? That's a dangerous assumption.)

comment How to unsign an application?
Owyn, are you sure code signatures can expire?

comment How to unsign an application?
@Ramhound, if the signature would be replaced by someone else, it would have a different signer? I don't know about Windows, but on a Mac, that is perfectly possible. (On a Mac, that would only prompt the user if deemed important for the applicable security policy. And on a Mac, deleting a signature is possible as well.)

comment Firefox drawing some websites off the viewing area
Confirmed in my Firefox on a Mac, which only has Adblock Plus installed, and also when disabled. That's just a bug either in Firefox or in the websites...

I think nowadays Adi's answer should be the accepted one.

Yeah, sameroom.io/pricing Not needed to just view multiple Slack channels; see Adi's answer and dudewad's answer.

comment How to stop Google Chrome from automatically downloading plugins (e.g. Pepper flash player)
I don't know how you can stop Chrome from adding new plugins (like when you install a new version of Chrome). But the existing ones can easily be disabled by browsing to chrome://plugins/ (Click "Details" for "Adobe Flash Player" to see this is indeed Pepper Flash. When manually installing Flash as well, you may see multiple entries for Flash.)

comment How to change the font(s) used by a PDF in OSX? Specifically I want to change from bitmap to vector fonts
Despite your "the same letters have the exact same pixels" I still don't think you're seeing a bitmap font, but are looking at an image. Sounds like a scan of a printed paper. Smart scan software creates an invisible layer of OCR'd text that allows for searching and selecting text, but then you're still seeing the scanned image. But I might be wrong, of course.
