Changes to Chrome's New Tab Page



You might remember the experimental new tab page that has been tested by the Chrome team for many months. The new tab page will be replaced by a simplified version of the Google homepage, most of the features of the new tab page will be relocated, while the search box will be removed from the Google Search interface and replaced by the Chrome omnibox.



The latest Dev Channel/Canary releases show this box with information about the new tab page: "Changes to the New Tab page".



* Get the Google Doodle and other features of Google.com on any new tab you open.

* Use the Chrome menu to get your recently closed tabs from any site you're on.

* Access your Apps by clicking on the Chrome App Launcher icon in your Windows Taskbar or the Apps icon in the bookmarks bar.






It looks like the updated new tab page will be released in the near future and it will bring a lot of other changes: Chrome's app launcher, more packaged apps, a new Google Search interface without the search box and a new navigation interface for Google that uses the app launcher menu.



The 8 empty boxes from this screenshot are used to display the most visited pages. It's the only feature from the old NTP that has been preserved. There's an apps icon in the bookmarks bar that links to a page that displays your apps, while the recently closed tabs and the tabs from other devices are displayed in the Chrome menu, below the bookmarks.






Here's the special google.com interface for Chrome:






To try the experimental new tab page, paste this in Chrome's address bar: chrome://flags/, use Ctrl+F to search for "Enable Instant Extended API" and click "Enabled" in the drop-down below "Enable Instant Extended API". Then click "Relaunch now" at the bottom of the page to restart Chrome. To disable this feature, use the same instructions, but click "Disabled" instead of "Enabled".

This is an exciting time to be a software developer; the open-source community has never been stronger, with a wealth of open source projects you can participate in. Contributing to open-source projects is good all around: It’s a great way to develop (or showcase) your skills, to learn about collaborating with others, to become acquainted with the latest technologies in an informal setting, and sometimes, to do something good for the world at large. But just cruising through GitHub viewing and editing source code is not necessarily the best way to figure out where to pitch in. What if there...

Brasero vs. K3b: Top 2 Linux Disc Burning Utilities



brasero_k3b_intro

Although discs are slowly becoming obsolete and being replaced by simple transfers or downloads over the Internet, there are still plenty of reasons for burning or copying some discs. In some cases, your Internet connection may not be sufficient enough to download the files you want. For example, distributing CDs/DVDs of Linux distributions is easier than telling computer-illiterate people to visit a website, download a large file, and burn it to a disc themselves. In any case, you need a trusty burning utility to do the job, and Brasero and K3b are your top choices. Brasero I’ve covered Brasero in...

How To Share A Windows CD Or DVD Drive On Your Network

“How do you share a CD or DVD drive across a network?” This was the question that dropped into my head recently as it became apparent that I would need to access data on some archive DVDs. If I was using a standard PC this wouldn’t be a problem; as it is, I’ve been the owner of an Acer Iconia W700 for several months now and one of the key drawbacks of a tablet computer is that they don’t come with integrated DVD drives. Now, I do have one way around this problem. Recently I purchased a caddy for an...

LinCity-NG for Linux vs. SimCity: Is Free Always Better?



lincity_simcity_intro

I’ve always loved simulation games for as long as I can remember. They can involve so many different aspects of the topic in question and can keep you entertained for hours. However, a common downside to any great simulation game is the price to purchase it. Thankfully, there are open source equivalents which aim to replace their costly proprietary cousins — examples include FlightGear and LinCity-NG as alternatives to Microsoft’s Flight Simulator series and SimCity games respectively. It’s great to be able to play these open source games for frugal fun, but whether they can actually be compared to their...

Bittorrent Technology Reviewed-How Torrents Work?



World Wide Web is full of so-called „Torrents“, internet users often speak about “torrent files ” and use different portals to find them. Let’s go a little bit deeper into the past and understand what is really meant under this term.










Bittorrent working model

What is Torrent file and how it works?


Torrent is an unofficial term used for BitTorrent. Bittorrent is a peer-to-peer protocol that works without the need for a central server. This means that not a server is responsible for sending you information, but you connect directly other available network members to get data transferred. In other words, BitTorrent’s “swarm” consists of many personal computers connected to each other directly through BT protocol.

This technology was developed by Bram Cohen in April 2001. Just some years after launching Bittorrent became one of the most popuar ways to transfer huge data between computers. Today it can be used by anyone without limitation by operation system, internet speed and computer knowledge.



Traditionally, a computer becomes a Bittorrent member by loading a file with .torrent extension into his Bittorrent client. After importing the client connects the user with a tracker. The tracker is a special designed server that gathers information about all connected computers from the swarm, files available on their machines, IP addresses etc. The main role of the tracker is to allow the users to connect to each other and to transfer binary data from one machine to another.



Once connected, a Bittorrent client begins to download files from other members in small parts. After some parts are downloaded, the client starts to share with other users connected to the same swarm. The main advantage of Bittorrent is that users share already transferred parts with others directly during downloading. This technology provides a one of the fastest way of content spreading all over the unlimited number of computers. This way of sharing increases the download speed in x times. If 5,000 people download the same file, it can take minutes to download gigabytes of data.



Important: Bittorrent client never downloads a file from a tracker server. The tracker is only responsible for managing the connected users from the swarm and establishing connection between them, not for transfer real files between single members.

What is needed to start torrenting


Primary there are two important things needed to start downloading files using Bittorrent: a Bittorrent client and a torrent file. You can find many different clients for all operation systems by searching in internet with Google – all of them are mostly free of charge. You will need a torrent search engine to find good torrent file. There is a huge amount of different niche related sites that offer torrent files for download. Just search in Google for the site that would suit your needs.

Never ending discussion


It’s well-known that many people use Bittorrent to download pirated movies, music, software, books, games etc. Because of its bad image many voices say that Bittorrent was specially developed to support piracy, that the technology should be declared as illegal and that it needed to be shut down.



Let’s go to the past and see what was the main aim of Bittorrent Inc. to develop this protocol. The motivation was to create a system that would be able to handle unlimited amount of data using the resources of clients’ computers and not of a central server. In this way many companies could save money on expensive server costs. BT protocol should be a an ecological way to save resources of our planet. While one user receives information from another user, he uses resources of his own machine to retrieve the data. This is the main advantage of BT technology.

Some good examples of how Bittorrent can be used:


The games publisher Blizzard uses Bittorrent protocol they have integrated into own client to distribute updates their games like World of Warcraft, StarCraft II or Diablo 3.



People all over the world can use Bittorrent technology to distribute big sized files to unlimited numbers of other people without paying for the server hosting bandwidth. This is a big help for the smaller movie companies, music labels or game publishers cause in this way they reduce their costs. WikiLeaks uses Bittorrent to distribute data, Linux uses it for their ISO disc images. Bittorrent can be also used for synchronizing of files between several computers, for live broadcasting and streaming of videos to the large audience of viewers. There are many other examples that can be mentioned to underline the Bittorrent’s importance for the digital industry.

Conclusion


There could be many opinions about Bittorrent and the ways it is used now for. You can love it or hate it. But the main point and this is also the important one is that Bittorrent can be assigned to the outstanding developments of mankind of last years - technology that opens new possibilities and way of distributing of digital information all over the world without high investments into expensive hardware.

Google Docs Shows Link Suggestions



I've always wanted a tool that lets you highlight a text and quickly link to the top search results for that text. Now this feature is available in Google Docs and Google Slides: select some text, right-click and select "Link". Then you can pick one of top Google search results, one of your other documents or the headings/bookmarks that match the text selection.









Type something in the "link" box and Google will show results for the new text:






You can also use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+K) or use the link button from the toolbar.

Google Showcases In-depth News Articles



If you search for a broad topic like [love], [global warming], [censorship], [North Korea], Google shows 3 in-depth news articles at the bottom of the first search results pages. It's an effort to go beyond promoting recent news articles and reward news sites that write detailed articles and in-depth analyses.



Here's an example for [recession]: 3 long articles from Esquire, New York Times and Forbes.






The results for [amazon prime] include a Gizmodo article.






The results for [startups] include a TechCrunch article from April 2012 about the top startup ecosystems.






"To understand a broad topic, sometimes you need more than a quick answer. Our research indicates perhaps 10% of people's daily information needs fit this category - topics like stem cell research, happiness, and love, to name just a few. (...) I'm happy to see people continue to invest in thoughtful in-depth content that will remain relevant for months or even years after publication. This is exactly what you'll find in the new feature. In addition to well-known publishers, you'll also find some great articles from lesser-known publications and blogs," says Google's Pandu Nayak.



There's a help center article that offers more information about this feature. "While the feature is based on algorithmic signals, there are steps you can take as a webmaster to help Google find your high-quality, in-depth content and best present it to users in the search." Google suggests to use schema.org article markup, Google authorship markup, logos and content that can be accessed without subscription.



Google News has a similar section that's called "spotlight", but it only includes recent news articles. "The Spotlight section of Google News is updated periodically with news and in-depth pieces of lasting value. These stories, which are automatically selected by our computer algorithms, include investigative journalism, opinion pieces, special-interest articles, and other stories of enduring appeal. To access the stories in this section, just click Spotlight on the left side of the page."
