You can still have google with the top black menu bar

I truly hate websites or GUIs in general going away with nice features or changing stuff for no good reason, and/or without being in a clear opt-in/out manner.

Anyway, adding a parameter to the google query/url still brings the not-so-old UI: noj=1

You'll still need a user script to have "scholar" to be among the search options on that menu, though. Otherwise it's still on "more → even more → scholar, no longer with your original query, loser"....

duckduckgo - search engine without tracking and search bubble

Posted 10-04-2011 at 02:12 PM by jere21

When I had a first look on it, I didn't like it. Now, one year later, I checked again - and now I really do:

http://duckduckgo.com is a really privacy oriented search engine. But under its very clear surface it also has other features:
  • unbiased search results, NOT depending on any profile that you got. See http://dontbubble.us/
  • privacy, duckduckgo.com doesn't save your data, nor does it turn it to the found website. See http://donttrack.us/
  • instant answers (like "define:TERM"

Debian and Google Chrome

I'm really beginning to like Google Chrome. It is definitely fast, loads web pages quickly, and uses just about the right amount of memory. The only caveat I've encountered is that there are still not many quality extensions available. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.

gtsh: how to use Google Translate without touching a web browser

Posted 08-09-2011 at 05:49 PM by MrCode
Updated 08-09-2011 at 05:49 PM by MrCode ("Transhlate"? WTF? :p)

I present "gtsh" (Google Translate for the SHell), a tiny(!) shell script that acts as a frontend to Google Translate:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
if test -z $3; then
	echo "Usage: $0 \"<str>\" <lang1> <lang2>"
	echo "Translates string \"<str>\" from <lang1> to <lang2>"
	echo "(CLI frontend to Google Translate)"
else
	wget -qO- "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/language/translate?v=1.0&q=$1&langpair=$2|${3:-$3}"

speed up your browsing experience

Posted 07-28-2010 at 08:10 AM by ultimate_linux

web page loads as follows
1.when you type in the url in the address bar,resolver,the program in browser sends it to dns server.
2.the dns server looks up the url in its database and returns the corresponding ip address of that url
3.the browser now forms a TCP connection and content transfer takes place.
4.then the browser interprets the content.

the time taking things in this process are dns lookup and content transfer,interpretation.
there is nothing...
