If you use Chrome, try ChromePlus.


chromeplus

ChromePlus from Maple Studio is exactly what it sounds like: Google Chrome, plus a bunch of useful extras. Like Chrome, ChromePlus is free, and everything Chrome does, it does. The "plus" part adds Mouse Gestures, Super Drag, a Download Manager, enhanced bookmarks, an IE tab, and more.

The ChromePlus installer automatically checked for the latest version of the program; it also advised us to close Firefox so it could import bookmarks and other settings from Mozilla, just like when installing Chrome. ChromePlus happily coexists with Chrome on the same desktop; we had both open at the same time as we installed our extensions, all of which functioned perfectly in ChromePlus. The most noticeable difference from Chrome was the presence of all the links from our Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar in the ChromePlus Bookmarks Bar, a welcome sight since Chrome didn’t install them automatically, though it did import them to the Other Bookmarks folder. An integrated search bar was the only other visible difference, but when we clicked on the tool icon to access the program’s options, we saw what made ChromePlus different. Starting with the New IE tab, which opens a new browser tab in IE for pages optimized for Internet Explorer, ChromePlus adds an enhanced bookmarks section; a control to clear your browsing history; the ChromePlus Download Manager; and Enhanced Options, which let us configure settings for tabs, bookmarks, privacy data, and how the browser functions as well as access the settings for Mouse Gestures, IE Tabs, Adblocking, Accelerators (keystroke shortcuts), and start-up options. The tabbed Chrome Options dialog is there, too, and there’s links to the ChromePlus Web site and forum as well. Of course, what matters is how well ChromePlus performs. It loaded and browsed every bit as quickly as a stripped-down Chrome installation, but its extras really made a difference. For instance, the Super Drag feature let us grab and drag a link into a new tab automatically, which may be the quickest method yet. Mouse Gestures are useful but require some practice. The IE Tab functioned perfectly, and switching modes was easy. Of course, it supports Chrome’s incognito mode, too.

Google Chrome is getting better all the time, and it’s become a serious contender for browser supremacy. ChromePlus adds features and options that take Chrome another step toward that goal. If you use Chrome, try ChromePlus.

Chinese supercomputer named world’s fastest


China overtook the United States at the head of the world of supercomputing on Sunday when a survey ranked one of its machines the fastest on the planet.
Tianhe-1, meaning Milky Way, achieved a computing speed of 2,570 trillion calculations per second, earning it the number one spot in the Top 500 (www.top500.org) survey of supercomputers.
The Jaguar computer at a US government facility in Tennessee, which had held the top spot, was ranked second with a speed of 1,750 trillion calculations per second.
Tianhe-1 does its warp-speed “thinking” at the National Centre for Supercomputing in the northern port city of Tianjin — using mostly chips designed by US companies.
Another Chinese system, the Nebulae machine at the National Supercomputing Centre in the southern city of Shenzhen, came in third.
The United States still dominates, with more than half of the entries in the Top 500 list, but China now boasts 42 systems in the rankings, putting it ahead of Japan, France, Germany and Britain.
It is not the first time that the United States has had its digital crown stolen by an Asian upstart. In 2002, Japan made a machine with more power than the top 20 American computers put together.
The supercomputers on the Top 500 list, which is produced twice a year, are rated based on speed of performance in a benchmark test by experts from Germany and the United States.

Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool


Microsoft released the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool to help remove specific prevalent malicious software from computers that are running Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, or Windows XP. After you download the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, the tool runs one time to check your computer for infection by specific prevalent malicious software (including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom) and helps remove any infection it finds. Microsoft releases a new version of the tool every month.

Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool features:
• The tool removes malicious software from an already-infected computer. Antivirus products block malicious software from running on a computer. It is significantly more desirable to block malicious software from running on a computer than to remove it after infection.
• The tool removes only specific prevalent malicious software. Specific prevalent malicious software is a small subset of all the malicious software that exists today.
• The tool focuses on the detection and removal of active malicious software. Active malicious software is malicious software that is currently running on the computer. The tool cannot remove malicious software that is not running. However, an antivirus product can perform this task.
The Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool is FREE! You only need to run->mrt.exe

Note: You cannot download and run the tool if you are running Microsoft Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, or Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. This tool is for Win XP SP2 and above including Vista& Windows 7

OpeniBoot to Bring Android on iPad and iPhone 4


Yes you read that right! If the video embedded below is anything to go by, running Android on iPad will soon become a reality.

Android-on-iPad

                                       OpeniBoot on iPad

The folks who brought us OpeniBoot based Bootlace for running Android on iPhone 3G are now working hard on porting it to iPhone 4 and the large-screen-tablet iPad. For those of you who don’t know, OpeniBoot is an open source implementation of iBoot bootloader for Apple iOS based devices. It allows booting of unsigned code such as Linux kernels on the device. OpeniBoot is critical for booting and usage of Linux based distros such as Android on the iPhone as it sets up and initializes many devices ready for the Linux kernel to take over. Currently, only iPhone 3G, 2G and the 1st-gen iPod touch is supported.


Android Coming to iPod touch 4G too, via OpeniBoot


We have a small update for you on OpeniBoot for iOS devices
. Incase you were wondering about support for the 4th-gen iPod touches, Hexxeh has just confirmed that they he and his team has tested the required binaries on a iPod touch 4G and needless to say, it worked just like it did on other A4 devices like the iPhone 4 and iPad.
