Browsers You've Never Heard Of: QupZilla

QupZilla iconThe chances are that you are reading this article in one of the five most popular web browsers: Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera or Internet Explorer. Whichever browser you're using, you've surely heard of the other four, if not tried them at least once in your surfing career.

Of course, “the big five” aren't the only browsers available – there are plenty more for different platforms, and it's great that there are, because it means that the users are given a wider choice.

Joining the ranks of lightweight web browsers like Midori, K-Meleon and Pale Moon is QupZilla – a simple, zippy browser with features that some major browsers don't even have by default.

Chrome Apps Jolidrive Thoughts (Video Included) 

The application we are going to look at today is called “Jolidrive”. I won’t lie when trying to make a script for this application I couldn’t think of a single thing positive to say. So in this video I decided to do a live approach of this application to show you what I meant about how it was hard to talk about. But don’t be discouraged; this article still has a mouthful to say about the video and the application itself, so keep on reading if you’re interested in what this application is all about.

Chrome Apps Episode 6: Flow Colors (Video)

Have you ever had one of those days where you just feel down in the dumps? Last week there were a lot of things going on through my head and I needed something to do to take my mind off of things. I remember reading an article saying that people should play a game of Tetris to forget some kind of trauma that they may be experiencing. The reason to this is because if you play a game of Tetris it makes you focus on the organization portion of your brain making you think more quickly on getting the pieces in the right order rather than whatever event you may be having problems with. I took that advice into mind and started to browse the Google Chrome App Store. I went straight for the games and found one right on top of the list called “Flow colors”. At first I thought the game looked familiar but then I remembered it was a game one of my friends showed me on their Ipad. So I already knew how fun this game was...

FireFox Addons for Enhanced Youtube Experience

I am a big fan of YouTube, just like anyone in the world who has a computer and even a somewhat reliable net connection. It is just an addicting site, with thousands of hours of video uploaded each month from some amazing submitters. Even amateurs have gained a serious legitimacy through this social media miracle, and it is one of the best examples of the power to reach global viewers in the world today.

That being said, you don't always want to have to search through the myriad of less impressive videos, random clips and bizarre uploads to find what you want. Or even to go to the main site to view content in the first place. In a time when productivity is everything, it helps to have a couple of apps that allow you to search and view YouTube videos in a more efficient way.

Firefox has really gone the distance in this regard. Many developers have created addons that enhance the YouTube experience, all with simple but impressive programs that offer unique features not provided by the main site. Even YouTube itself has gotten in on the action and created their own.

Here are five great addons that will make your YouTube viewing even better.

1. YouTube MP3 Podcaster

Podcasts, music and commentaries have a special place on YouTube. But some are not so easy to view off of the site, which is a problem. Especially if you just want a song or lecture, and you don't want the (often redundant) video that comes with it. This addon works by letting you download it in an MP3 format, effectively stripping away the visuals and offering a clean audio clip that you can then upload to devices like Zune and iPod. It even has a clipper to allow you to remove anything unwanted, like dead air, intros and ads.

2. Easy YouTube Video Downloader
