In my previous article of “How to Create Animated GIFs” you would have gotten introduced to the GifRecorder tool to create animated GIF images which would make it far easier to record your screen actions and paste it as images on your posts.
Now, I started using the tool, and it is amazingly easy to use and I have made use of couple of those animated GIF images in this article as well, do let me know what you think about them and if they prove to be useful to you as a blogger!!!
Which browser -
Since the time I started using Chrome, I have never had a thought to move back to IE or firefox, mainly due to the expansive list of extensions and add-ons that it supports. As a blogger, I have many of the SEO extensions installed like the Alexa page rank, Buffer, List.ly etc.
Scientific Calculator in your browser -
But lately I have also found this cool feature that most of the browsers support and so does Chrome. I am sure you would have already used chrome as a calculator just by entering the mathematical operations in place of the URL. But did you also know that chrome has capabilities to perform scientific mathematical operations?
Yes, it does, and it is quite simple to use. If you go to the Developer Tools option…. ok ok, dont worry, nothing technical here. I know it is called “Developer tools”, but being a non-techie person also, you can use these features without a second thought!!!
To access the Developer Tools in Chrome, press Ctrl+Shift+J, and you will see the lower pane in your browser open up. Go to the console tab at the far right and that is the place to enter your operations. It supports basic mathematical operations as well as some complex ones using the ‘Math‘ function. See below “Animated GIF” to understand how it can be done!!!!
Edit Current Website -
Have you tried to edit any website content via your browser? Do you think it will or should allow you to edit it? No, none of the web pages are designed to be editable by the reader (of course).
But using an extension, you can actually write your own content in any website of your choice. The extension is called “Edit Current Website” and it installs onto your favorites or Apps toolbar in Chrome.
All you need to do is open up the website of your choice and click on this extension. Once done, you can edit any content on that session and add your own content.
Just for fun, I picked on Carolyn’s website, and tried doing the same…check it out below
Over to You -
So what do you think of these cool features on your browser? Have you used them already or something similar to these? I am sure you will be aware of many such features and hidden gems, do share them with your comments below.
