Blogger Finally Welcomes Static Pages


Do you use Blogger? My earlier comparison between Blogger and WordPress showed that Blogger did not support static pages. This was useful for creating, for example, a ‘Contact Us’ page or an ‘About Us’ page.  To create static pages in Blogger, users usually create a post and change the publish date to something really old.

Get the Firefox 4.0 Home Button Now

Google Talk Invisible

Google Talk (Jabber) features something known as invisibility which makes the user seem to be offline, but really is online. This is a popular feature among most IM networks. However, is it possible to figure out if someone is really offline or just using invisibility just to avoid talking to you on Google Talk? The […]

Hide New Tab Button in Firefox 3.5+

Firefox New Tab Button

Most modern browsers come with a button on the tab bar which opens a new tab. Firefox 3.5 was one of the last ones to implement it, however, some users may find that this button isn’t very useful. After all, opening a new tab can be done with the existing Ctrl + T shortcut or […]
