Google Chrome is paying you to find Bugs

Feb 28, 2010

Yes you heard that right, to make Chrome more stable and wipe out competition, Google is trying all its effort to make Chrome a flawless browser. You might want to know that Why Google Chrome is so fast?,
Google is giving $1337 for those who will find BUG and report to them. Its worth noticing that folks at Mozilla are running successful vulnerability reward program from a long time. So if you have ever came across a bug and want to get benefited by that, than it is the right time to tell them.

Following is the quote from the Chrome’s Official Blog-
Today, we are introducing an experimental new incentive for external researchers to participate. We will be rewarding select interesting and original vulnerabilities reported to us by the security research community. For existing contributors to Chromium security — who would likely continue to contribute regardless — this may be seen as a token of our appreciation. In addition, we are hoping that the introduction of this program will encourage new individuals to participate in Chromium security. The more people involved in scrutinizing Chromium’s code and behavior, the more secure our millions of users will be.The Chromium Blog

Tweaking: Edit Firefox Context Menu

Feb 27, 2010

You can customize Firefox menu by using 3rd party tools but if you want to tweak menus yourself than the following tutorial is for you.
You can tweak your menus using userChrome.css file. userChrome.css is a CSS file that can be used to change the way Mozilla Firefox interface look. But to edit it you need to locate it first. 

For Windows XP users:
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
For Windows Vista and Seven Users:
  1. Press WIN + R and type %Appdata%
  2. Then navigate to Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\lpg7v146.default\chrome
  3. Here create a file named “userChrome.css”
In this tutorial I will show you how you can Hide Menu items from the context menu.
In the userChrome.css file add a line like this to hide any menu item:
#id1, #id2 { display:none !important; }
replacing each of the identifiers #id1, #id2, … with one of the selectors from UserChrome.css IDs.
Example (hides the “View Background” menu item and the horizontal line after it):
#context-sep-viewbgimage {
display: none !important;
So by using this method you can hide any menu item that you want, lets take one more example. Lets hide the Open Link in New Window menu item.
display: none !important;
That’s it now restart your firefox and the Open Link In New Windows menu item will be gone.
Reset To Default:
If something went wrong or at some stage you want to revert back all the changes than simply delete the file userChrome.css

What does a Beep says?

Whenever you start your computer you always heard a Beep, do you ever tried to figure out what does it mean? or if it means something or not?

The pattern of beeps whether its the number of beeps or the length of those beeps will give you an indication of the actual problem. Its a distress signal from the computer in a Morse code like pattern.

Unless you have a diagnostic card to tell you more about the particular problem, you will have to use the charts shown here to decipher the computer error and get your machine back up and running.
