These are the settings I use with Google Chrome to get most of my machine (Dell Vostro 1015/ 3Gig ram)

Type about:flags in the adress bar or copy paste the chrome urls

GPU rasterization
Set to Enabled

Number of raster threads
Set to "Number of threads/cores your cpu have"

These two will increase Javascript...

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

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: 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
  • privacy, doesn't save your data, nor does it turn it to the found website. See
  • instant answers (like "define:TERM"

Debian and Google Chrome

Posted 08-09-2011 at 06:52 PM by DJ Shaji

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:

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)"
	wget -qO- "$1&langpair=$2|${3:-$3}"
