11 Twitter Hacks To Supercharge Your Tweeting Powers

Twitter may not be having the best of years so far, but it still runs circles around its rivals in so many ways. One of the reasons Twitter is worth sticking with (or making a start with) are the wealth of plug-ins, add-ons and third-party apps built on top of the platform. Here are our favourite tools for boosting Twitter’s usefulness — they’re all quick to set up and free to try.


How To Use One Of iTunes' Best Features In Google Play Music

One great feature we lost in the transition from iTunes to all-you-can-eat streaming services is the smart playlist. When you have 30 million tracks to choose from, queueing up everything you’ve not heard for six months makes less sense. Thankfully, you can bring the feature to Google Play Music with a simple Chrome extension.


Firefox's 'YouTube Unblocker' Add-On Removed By Mozilla For Bad Behaviour

One usually doesn’t question the trustworthiness of a Firefox extension from Mozilla’s official add-on site, but in the case of the recently removed “YouTube Unblocker”, that faith would have been misplaced. The add-on is no longer available, after being removed by Mozilla for violating the organisation’s extension guidelines.


Use OttoPlay To Watch Netflix Like It's Old-School Cable

Are you a fervent acolyte of the on-demand video streaming revolution and yet still yearn for some of the old-school television charm? OttoPlay is an add-on for Netflix (and YouTube and Hulu) that brings back the old channel surfing feel, letting you skip across “channels.” It may be more rewarding than normal recommendations, at least.


Snag All The Images From A Website With One Click

Whether you’re gasping at the beauty of Earth or the wonder of modern-day architecture (or both), there may well be times when you need to quickly download all of the pictures on a particular page — even if you just want some new phone backgrounds to use. One such tool for the job is the I’m A Gentleman extension for Chrome.


This Chrome Extension Will Block Star Wars Spoilers For You

When Star Wars starts screening for the masses later this week, the internet is going to be full of spoilers. Hell, after last night’s premiere, it probably already is. But don’t worry: this Chrome extension will keep you safe.


How To Snooze Tabs Until Later In Firefox

Tab management isn’t always easy, and your browser of choice no doubt comes with an option or two to combat tab overload. The latest tool is SnoozeTabs, an experimental new utility for Firefox.


Mozilla's Radical Firefox Changes And How They'll Affect Your Add-Ons

Building extensible software is a tricky business. On one hand, you want your platform to be as customisable as possible, while on the other you want the flexibility to update APIs to make them faster, more secure and feature-rich. These aims aren’t always compatible, as we’re now discovering with Mozilla and the fundamental changes it’s making to Firefox’s add-on infrastructure.


You Can Bring Back The Tags On YouTube For More Flexible Searches

Back in 2012, YouTube started hiding the tags associated with videos to stop people copying popular combinations. They can still be attached to clips — and they’re still factored into searches — but they’re not visible while you’re browsing around the site. If you find them useful, you can bring them back with the help of a simple Chrome extension.


You Can Make Cortana Ditch Bing For Google In Windows 10

Cortana makes the jump to the desktop in Windows 10, meaning you can get a more personalised experience through voice commands or the good old mouse and keyboard. But what if kind of hate Bing’s search engine? You can use a browser extension to redirect Bing queries to any search engine you choose.
