Happy holidays Google doodle plays jingle bells for Christmas

Happy holidays Google doodle plays jingle bells for Christmas


It's time for Christmas and Google has come up with an interactive doodle on the eve of Christmas, playing the celebration tune of 'jingle Bells'. Making the 'Happy Holidays' Google doodle musical and interactive, Google wishes us Merry Christmas, bringing us in a festive mood.
The happy holidays doodle has six glowing buttons. Each button plays a sound from the musical notes of 'jingle bells', when we click on it. Once we click on all the six buttons, it shows a button with a musical note. When we click on this musical note button, it plays 'jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way'.
This year's Google happy holidays doodle is made up of lit up holiday symbols - snowflake, Santa Claus, bell, snowman, candle and a gift box - on a dark background, symbolising the night sky. The Google logo appears as a faint outline behind the holiday icons.

Google has been wishing its users with a pre-Christmas doodle for the last 10 years. In 2010 Google has put up a doodle of interactive portraits of holiday scenes from around the world. Before 2010, Google used multiple doodles for the holiday season.
Google recently announced the revamp of its Doodle site ( which houses all Google doodles since the very first back in 1998.
By our estimates Google has put up as many as 259 doodles on its home page in 2011 commemorating different events of importance across the world. Some of the doodles are limited to Google's country specific home pages while others are appear globally.

Rapper protests piracy bill with ‘SOPA Cabana’

Rapper protests piracy bill with ‘SOPA Cabana’


British rapper Dan Bull has released a new video further showcasing the viral opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act, setting his own criticisms to the measure to music.
In a photo montage that features 86 people (and one cat), Bull rails against SOPA, reiterating fears that the legislation could limit freedom of speech and particularly hurt the rap community, which often uses samples of other tracks and beats to supplement their own songs.

Celebrating 100 glorious years 

Today Delhi completes 100 years of its existence and also marks the centenary of the third and last Durbar held in 1911.

That year the imperial capital was shifted from Calcutta to Delhi and has since remained the seat of political activity.

King George V and Queen Mary were crowned the Emperor and Empress of India at the Delhi Durbar or mass assembly on Dec 12.

The foundation of the new city was laid Dec 15, three days after the coronation.

The mythical Indraprastha of the Mahabharata was formally declared the capital of Imperial India.

The capital was named New Delhi in 1927 and was formally inaugurated Feb 13, 1931, says R V Smith, historian and writer.

Seven cities -Siri, Tughlakabad, Jahanapanah, Ferozabad, Dinpanah, Shergarh and Shahajahanabad- were put together to form an eighth city called ‘new’ Delhi, he says.

Two British architects -Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker - laid out the architectural map of the city.

The small villages and hamlets in the southern part of the city gave way to symmetrical, planned neighbourhoods and architectural marvels like the Secretariat and the Parliament, says Smith.

St. James’ Church, built in the 1830s, is one of the oldest surviving British buildings in the city, he says.

Historian and writer Mahmood Farooqui says being the capital, Delhi developed after 1947 and a lot of state-sponsored industrial development took place in the 1950s and 1960s.

Before New Delhi, the core of the city lay in the northern parts: Chandni Chowk, Kashmere Gate and Civil Lines flourishing with trade and commerce.

People started moving to Connaught place only after World War II, says Smith.

He said in the 1960’s the sprawling circular market was more habited by the upwardly mobile and people then wore the best clothes to visit the market.

The last 100 years have seen Delhi grow and change.

The nation’s capital is perhaps the best example of the variety and diversity of the country. It’s the home of migrants, says Sanjay Kumar of the Centre for Study of Developing Societies.

From a population of 240,000 in 1911 it has grown to 22 million now. The burgeoning population has seen single units with sprawling lawns give way to skyscrapers and concrete jungles.

The city got a facelift for the 1982 Asian Games and another even bigger one during last year’s Commonwealth Games.

Many new infrastructure and facilities came up.

Globalisation also saw major changes in infrastructure, retailing and other spheres

The west became even closer and western living and ideas infiltrated into our daily lives and effected drastic changes on the social front, says octogenarian and retired government official, Ram Lal Sanganer.

From colour TV to a proliferation of channels brought the world into our drawing rooms.

With living standards improved transport and other means.

The skies were opened up, air travel became cheaper as private airlines mushroomed.

Perhaps the greatest revolution was ushered in by the metro rail.

People no longer have to contend with the long queues, ‘eternal’ wait at bus-stops and traffic jams.

Christianity has also deepened its roots over the century in Delhi. It has been a saga of great enterprise -for the spread of education, social, philanthropic, general wellbeing and better health facilities with the aid of hospitals like Holy Family and St. Stephen’s Hospitals, says Smith.

The largest number of schools and colleges are run by this vibrant minority which has brought manifold development in all spheres of life.

Seventy years after the erection of St. Mary’s Church, the Sacred Heart Cathedral was built and blessed on December 8, 1935.

In 1910, by a Degree of the Sacred Congregation of Faith, Shimla Archdiocese was erected.

Twenty-seven years later portions of Punjab which were under the Archdiocese of Agra were added to the Archdiocese of Shimla.

With this addition, the Archdiocese was renamed as Archdiocese of Delhi-Shimla.

In 1959, the Archdiocese was bifurcated into two separate ecclesiastical units, Diocese of Shimla-Chandigarh and Archdiocese of Delhi and both were handed over to the Diocese clergy.

At the time of the bifurcation, in 1959, the Archdiocese of Delhi had only 10 churches.

At present there are 41 parishes, most of them in the Capital itself, Smith added.

Windows XP Twenty Useful Tips and Tweaks

1) Cracking Windows XP Login Password download the nice and easy Nt/2k/xp password cracker from our community or other way is if u get acess to the computer then go to Start>Run and type “control userpasswords2” without Quotes and a new pop up windows will open and u will reach to user account properties. Here u can Reset the Administrator and any Users password so anytime when u Want to use the Computer start it in safemode pressing F8 at Booting get into the xp as u have Administrator password and go to Controlpanel>Useraccounts and create a New Account .Start Computer Normally and get into WinXP with ur newely made account and do ur job. (Don’t forget to Delete ur newely made account Otherwise u will be in trouble) Delete ur account again starting the computer in Safemode as Administrator and Delete ur Account.

2) Disable XP Boot Logo It is possible to disable the XP splash screen, which will slightly speed up the overall boot process. Be aware that removing the splash screen will also cause you not to see any boot-up messages that might come up (chkdsk, convert ... ), but if your system runs without any problems then it should not matter. Edit boot.ini. Add " /noguiboot" right after "/fastdetect". Upon restarting, the splash screen will be gone. It can be re-enabled by removing the new switch.

3) Turn Off Indexing to Speed Up XP Windows XP keeps a record of all files on the hard disk so when you do a search on the hard drive it is faster. There is a downside to this and because the computer has to index all files, it will slow down normal file commands like open, close, etc. If you do not do a whole lot of searches on your hard drive then you may want to turn this feature off: Open My Computer. Right-click your hard drive icon and select Properties. At the bottom of the window you'll see "Allow indexing service to index this disk for faster searches," uncheck this and click ok. A new window will pop up and select Apply to all folders and subfolders. It will take a minute or two for the changes to take affect but then you should enjoy slightly faster performance.

4) Clean Your Prefetch to Improve Performance This is a unique technique for WinXP. We know that it is necessary to scrub registry and TEMP files for Win9X/ME/2000 periodically. Prefetch is a new and very useful technique in Windows XP. However, after using XP some time, the prefetch directory can get full of junk and obsolete links in the Prefetch catalog, which can slow down your computer noticeably. Open C(system drive):/windows/prefetch, delete those junk and obsolete files, reboot. It is recommended that you do this every month.

5) Performance Increase Through My Computer Easy enough tweak to usually find out about it on your own, but still, some of us still don't find it right away. So here it is: Start > right-click on My Computer and select Properties. Click on the "Advanced" tab. See the "Performance" section? Click "Settings". Disable the following: Fade or slide menus into view Fade or slide ToolTips into view Fade out menu items after clicking Show Shadows under menus Slide open combo boxes Slide taskbar buttons Use a background image for each folder type Use common tasks in folders There, now Windows will still look nice and perform faster.

6) Reduce 10 Second Scandisk Wait Time Start MS Dos Prompt (Start run CMD), and type: CHKNTFS /T:4 where 4 is the amount of wait time. CHKNTFS /? for more info.

7) DMA Mode on IDE Devices Just like Windows 2000, Windows XP still fails to set the DMA mode correctly for the IDE device designated as the slaves on the primary IDE and secondary IDE channels. Most CD-ROMS are capable of supporting DMA mode, but the default in XP is still PIO. Setting it to DMA won't make your CD-ROM faster, but it will consume less CPU cycles. Here's how: Open the Device Manager. One way to do that is to right-click on "My Computer", select the Hardware tab, and select Device Manager. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" and double-click on "Primary IDE Channel". Under the "Advanced Settings" tab, check the "Device 1" setting. More than likely, your current transfer mode is set to PIO. Set it to "DMA if available". Repeat the step for the "Secondary IDE Channel" if you have devices attached to it. Reboot.

8) Load Internet Explorer the Fastest Way Possible Edit your link to start Internet Explorer to have -nohome after it. For Example: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome This will load internet explorer very fast because it does not load a web page while it is loading. If you want to go to your homepage after it is loaded, just click on the home button.

9) Easy Way to Adjust Large SystemCache Normally, the tweak I've seen asks you to go into HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management and change the value to either O or 1 to the adjustment the LargeSystemCache. However, in Windows XP, all you have to do is: Right-click My Computer. Select Properties. Click Advanced. Choose Performance. Click Advanced again. Select either Programs or System Cache under Memory Usage. Programs = 0 for the registry tweak equivalent System Cache = 1 for the registry tweak equivalent

10) Shutdown XP Faster Like previous versions of windows, it takes long time to restart or shutdown windows XP when the "Exit Windows" sound is enabled. To solve this problem you must disable this useless sound. Click Start button. Go to settings > Control Panel > Sound, Speech and Audio devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds. Then under program events and windows menu click on "Exit Windows" sub-menu and highlight it. Now from sounds you can select, choose "none" and then click Apply and OK. Now you should see some improvements when shutting down your system.

11)Easily Disable Messenger Go into: C:/Program Files/Messenger. Rename the Messenger folder to "MessengerOFF". This does not slow down Outlook Express or hinder system performance.

12) Turn Off Autoplay for Program CDs How can you stop Windows XP from launching program CDs? Click Start, click Run, type GPEDIT.MSC to open Group Policy in the Microsoft Management Console. Double-click Computer Configuration, double-click Administrative templates, double-click System, and then click Turn off autoplay. The instructions on your screen describe how to configure this setting. Click Properties to display the setting dialog. Click Enabled, and choose CD-ROM drives, then click OK, to stop CD autoplay. This setting does not prevent Autoplay for music CDs.

13) Synchronize Your Computer Clock with an Internet Time Server Does your computer have the right time? If your computer is not part of a domain, you can synchronize your computer clock with an Internet time server. To do so: Double–click the time on your task bar. Click the Internet Time tab. Select the time server you want to use and make sure to select the Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server check box.

14) Win XP Won’t Completely Shutdown Go to Control Panel, then go to Power Options. Click on the APM tab, then check the "Enable Advanced Power Management support." Shut down your PC. It should now successfully complete the Shut Down process.

15) Adjust Various Visual Effects Open up the Control Panel. Go under System and click on the Advanced tab. Click settings under Performance options. You can now change various graphical effects (mainly animations and shadows).

16) Disable Error Reporting Open Control Panel. Click on Performance and Maintenance. Click on System. Then click on the Advanced tab. Click on the error-reporting button on the bottom of the windows. Select Disable error reporting. Click OK. Click OK.

17) Increase Your Cable Modem or DSL Speed in XP This tweak is for broad band cable connections on stand alone machines with WinXP professional version - might work on Home version also. It may also work with networked machines as well. This tweak assumes that you have let WinXP create a connection on install for your cable modem/NIC combination and that your connection has tcp/ip - QoS - file and print sharing - and client for Microsoft networks , only, installed. It also assumes that WinXP will detect your NIC and has in-box drivers for it. If it doesn't do not try this. In the "My Network Places" properties (right-click on the desktop icon and choose properties), highlight the connection then at the menu bar choose "Advanced" then "Advanced Settings". Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK.

18) Stop Jerkey Graphics If you are connected to a LAN and have problems with jerkey graphics, this might be the solution: Right-click "MyComputer". Select "Manage". Click on "Device Manager". Double-click on your NIC under "Network Adapters". In the new window, select the "Advanced" tab. Select "Connection Type" and manually set the value of your NIC. (Not "Auto Sense" which is default.). You should reboot.

19) Speeding Up Your Old **** Pentium by 50% We all know that you really shouldn't try to run Windows XP on anything less that about a Pentium 3 of some sort if you are out for speedy operations and amazing reaction times, but for those of us with the good old Pentium 2's who want to see just how well we can run XP, we have to tweak as much as we can where-ever we can. A real killer to the system's performance is Windows Media Player. Although it may look desirable and fancy with it's rounded off edges and 3rd-Dimensional appearance, the truth is, it takes up a large amount of that precious processing power. All of these troubles however, lead to one thing in particular with this 'new-look' over-rated music and video player...the Visualizations. The look-great I'll admit but like a lot of software these days, it has no purpose. If you run the task manager, and click the Performance tab along the top, you'll see that when Windows Media Player is running and nothing else is active, it takes up around 50% of the processors power. Once these visualizations are turned off, it barely takes up 2-3% of the processors power, which leaves much more room for other applications to work efficiently. Here's how to disable the feature: Open Media Player. Make sure the Now Playing tab on the left is selected. Click the View menu along the top. Go down to Now Playing Tools

20) Turn Off System Restore to Save Space By default, Windows XP keeps a backup of system files in the System Volume Information folder. This can eat up valuable space on your hard drive. If you don't want Windows to back up your system files: Open the Control Panel. Double-click on System. Click the System Restore tab. Check "Turn off System Restore on all drives". Hit Apply. You may now delete the System Volume Information folder. ............................

How to Hide Data in Image, Audio & Video Files: Steganography

How to Hide Data in ImagesEver wondered to know how to hide secret messages in images, audio and video files? Well, in this post I will take you through a concept called steganography using which, it is possible to hide your secret information in image files, songs or any other file of your choice. At the end of this post, you can also download free stegnographic tools and start hiding your data.

What is Steganography?

Steganography is a means of obscuring data where secret messages are hidden inside computer files such as images, sound files, videos and even executable files so that, no one except the sender and the receiver will suspect the existence of stealth information in it. Steganography may also involve the usage of cryptography where the message is first encrypted before it is concealed in another file. Generally, the messages appear to be something else such as an image, sound or video so that the transfer of secret data remains unsuspected.
The main advantage of steganography over other methods such as cryptography is that, it will not arose suspicion even if the files fall in the hands of a third party. Unlike cryptographic messages, stegnographic messages will no way attract the attention of a third party by themselves. Thus stegnanography has an upper hand over cryptography as it involves both encryption and obscurity.

What are the Applications of Steganography?

Steganography is mainly used to obscure confidential information/data during storage or transmission. For example, one can hide a secret message in an audio file and send this to another party via email instead of sending the message in the textual format. The receiver on the other end will decrypt the hidden message using the private decryption key. In a worst case scenario, even if a third party does manage to gain access to the email, all he can find is the audio file and not the hidden data inside it. Other usage of steganography include digital watermarking of images for reasons such as copyright protection.
Eventhough steganography has many useful applications, some may use this technique for illegitimate purposes such as hiding a pornographic content in other large files. Roumors about terrorists using steganography for hiding and communicating their secret information and instructions are also reported. An article claiming that, al-Queda had used steganography to encode messages in images and transported them via e-mails, was reported by New York Times, in October 2001.

How do Steganography Tools Work?

Stegnography tools implement intelligent algorithms to carefully embed the encrypted text messages or data inside other larger files such as an image, audio, video or an executable file. Some tools will embed the encrypted data at the end of another file so that there will be enough room for storing larger data.
There are many steganography tools available online but only a few are able to work flawlessly. I did not find any tool that worked perfectly on both small and large data. However I have  managed to develop my own tool that can work perfectly on all types of files and all size of data. The tool is called “Stego Magic“. You can download it from the following link.
Download Stego Magic
The zip file contains two versions of Stego Magic: One for encrypting the text messages and the other for encrypting binary files. StegoMagic_TXT can be used to hide text messages in other files such as an image or a sound file. StegoMagic_BIN can be used to hide one binary file in another such as an executable file inside an image or an image inside a video file.
With Stego Magic, there is no limitation on the size and type of the file that you are intending to hide. For example, you can hide a video of size 1 GB in an image of size 1 MB or hide an executable file inside a WORD document. The tool is pretty straightforward to use and requires no special understanding of the concept.
At the end of the encryption process, a secret decryption key will be generated and the same is required during the decryption process.

How to Use Stego Magic?

Suppose you want to hide a text message inside a JPG file:
1. Place the JPG and the text file (.txt) in the same folder as that of StegoMagic_TXT.exe
2. Run StegoMagic_TXT.exe and follow the screen instructions to embed the text message inside the JPG image.
3. Note down the secret decryption key.
Now you can send this image to your friend via email. To decrypt the hidden message, your friend should load this JPG file onto the Stego Magic tool and use the secret decryption key.
I hope you enjoy this post :) . For queries and feedback, please pass your comments

How To Amplify Your Microphone in Windows 7

How To Amplify Your Microphone in Win 7 

Windows 7 is so much better than previous versions of Windows. It’s very intuitive, yet sometimes it can get really tricky. The microphone was one of the biggest “surprises” I’ve got since I installed Windows 7: I always had to shout so people can hear my voice over Skype. At first, I didn’t make the connection between this and the fact that I’ve changed the operating system, I just thought my microphone was lousy and I should get a better one. I’m glad I didn’t. I don’t know how expensive an expensive microphone is, but I managed to save all that money thanks to this trick I’m going to share with you in a moment. Browsing through menus, I discovered that Windows 7 has an option called “Microphone boost”, which I didn’t know about. This is how to find it:
Click on Start orb, then go to Control Panel and choose Sound. A pop-up menu will open.
You need to go to the second tab, Recording:
microphone settings in windows 7
The list will show all recording devices that can be plugged in your computer. You’ll probably have only one of them enabled, corresponding to your microphone. Click on it, then click on the Properties button. This is what you’ll see:
microphone boost - windows 7
In the next menu, make sure the microphone volume (the first slider) is set to maximum. The second slider is for Microphone Boost and it is set to zero by default. Move it to +20.0 dB and test your microphone again. If you’re not happy, go back and choose another value, until you get the volume you want.

How To Download and Install Windows 8

Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server Settings for Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, GMail, MSN, AOL and more 

dots Why & when do I need these settings?

Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, GMail and other providers are basically email services designed to provide you with email mailbox accesss directly from the web. However, going online and logging on to their sites is not always the most convenient way for reading and sending emails.

On the other hand, you have the alternative to send and receive emails through such a mailbox by using a local email client software, such as Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. In order to properly use it, you need to configure your email software with the incoming and outgoing mail servers of your email provider (Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail or else).

dots Mail Server Settings

  • Hotmail Settings
  • As other web based email services, Hotmail is using the HTTP protocol for connecting you to your mailbox. If you want to send and receive Hotmail emails using an email client software, then your software must support Hotmail HTTP access for your email account. Some email clients, such as Outlook Express or Microsoft Outlook, offer builtin support for Hotmail accounts, so you only have to select HTTP when you are asked to select your email account type and select Hotmail as the HTTP Mail Service Provider.

    Mail Server Settings for Hotmail using the Microsoft Outlook Connector

    If you are using Microsoft Outlook & the Outlook Connector, you can define your Hotmail account just like any regular POP3 email account:
      Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (logon using Secure Password Authentification - SPA, mail server port: 995)
      Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (TLS enabled, port 587)
  • Yahoo! Mail Settings
  • Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
      Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 465)
      Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (SSL enabled, port 995)
    POP Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings
      Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 995)
      Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)
  • Google GMail Settings
  • The Google GMail service offers email client access for retrieving and sending emails through your Gmail account. However, for security reasons, GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
      Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 995)
      Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or (TLS enabled, port 587)

  • Lycos Mail Settings
  • The Lycos Mail Plus service allows you to use POP3 and SMTP servers for accessing your Lycos mailbox.
      Lycos Mail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (port 110)

  • AOL Mail Settings
  • The AOL email service is a web based system, designed for managing your AOL mailbox via HTTP IMAP access. Unlike Hotmail, you can use any email client to access your AOL mailbox, as long as it supports the IMAP protocol.

Netscape Internet Service also supports AOL® Communicator, Microsoft® Outlook, Microsoft® Outlook Express, and other POP3 e-mail software. The outgoing mail server needs SSL support, so make sure your email client software supports SSL connections over the SMTP protocol.
      Netscape Internet Service Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (port 110)
      Netscape Internet Service Outgoing Mail Server - (port 25, using a secure SSL connection)

    Gmail POP3 Settings 

    Making a Gmail POP3 account can really come in handy and the good thing about that is configuring such an account is not at all complex. There is just an easy  two-step process for configuring your Gmail POP3 account for receiving your mails in another client. First, you have to enable your Gmail POP3 account so that you receive all your mails in another email client. After you have enabled the account, then you just have to provide the data to create a POP3 account. Creating a POP3 account is as simple as that.
    Here, both the steps are explained clearly:

    Step 1-Enabling your Gmail POP3 account

    To enable your Gmail account, all you have to do is access your Gmail account by logging through After you have successfully logged in, click on the “settings” link located on the top-right corner of the screen. Click on the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” link on the screen.
    gmail pop3
    Now you have two choices- Either you can enable POP3 for all the mails i.e. the ones that have been already downloaded and the ones to be received in the future or you can enable POP3 for only the mails which are to be received in the future.
    gmail pop 3
    After making your choice click on the “save changes” button and this will save the fed configuration information.

    Step 2- Providing the data

    Now that you have enabled your Gmail POP3 account, you can create an account now. Even though the procedure varies from one email client to another, the common values or fields that you are required to fill are as below.
    Email Address: Your Gmail email address
    POP Password: Your Gmail password
    Outgoing Server:
    Outgoing server (SMTP) port: 587
    Server Address:
    Incoming Server Port: 995
    TLS/SSL required: Yes

    Turn Your Firefox Address Bar Into Awesome Word Lookup Dictionary 

    Often we need particular meaning of some word and we end up searching multiple online dictionaries for the correct usage or definition. Do you know that Google also provides dictionary functionality to its users free of cost and with much more features than others? We will use this Google dictionary to turn our Firefox address bar into quick and useful word lookup guide.
    Many of you must have idea about the “I’m feeling lucky” feature of the Firefox address bar. For others – 

    You don’t have to go to every time for reaching a specific website whose exact spelling you don’t remember or when you know that it would be the first result from Google.
    Just enter your query/keywords in Firefox address bar and hit Enter key. Firefox will assume that you are doing Google’s “I am feeling lucky” search and will directly land you at that site. For example, type ‘wikipedia India‘ in the address bar and hit Enter key. Firefox will directly take you to Wikipedia’s page on India.

    The magic behind this trick is possible because of little known Keyword.URL defined in your Firefox configuration settings. Instead of always getting results from Google, You can also set your location bar for other search engines as described in this article.

    We will use the same trick to convert our Firefox address bar into useful word definition and lookup guide. Just follow these simple steps –

    1) Go to address bar and type about:config . Press Enter key and accept the warning. You can now see most of the firefox settings.
    2) Write keyword.url in the top filter keyword textbox.
    3) Double click on the filtered result to change its value.
    4) Paste the following into the keyword.URL pop-up box|en&q=
    5) Click OK and you are done.
    Instructions for adding keyword.URL in firefox about config settings

    To check, just open another tab and type some random word into Firefox location/address bar and hit Enter key. For example, angel. You will see Google’s dictionary result for the given word. Not only you can find the word meaning, synonyms, related phrases, pronunciation and web definitions but you can also star or bookmarks words for future. 

    Google Dictionary provides lot of goodies such as word bookmark and pronunciation

    Along with these goodies, Google Dictionary also helps you find translated meanings of the words. To use this feature, select a language from the drop down next to Google’s logo and type your word to translate and get its meaning.

    To revert to traditional Google I’m feeling lucky search, use the same steps, but this time paste the following string into Keyword.URL value –
    My favorite features are word bookmarking and audio pronunciation. What are yours?

    Google Search Hacking 

    1) Google Search:- "Active Webcam Page" inurl:8080

    4) Google Search:- intitle:"index.of" robots.txt
    Description- The robots.txt file contains "rules" about where web spiders are allowed (and NOT allowed) to look in a website's directory structure. Without over-complicating things, this means thatthe robots.txt file gives a mini-roadmap of what's somewhat public and what's considered more private on a web site. Have a look at the robots .txt file itself, it contains interesting stuff. However, don't forget to check out the other files in these directories since they are usually at the top directory level of the web server!

    5) Google Search:- intitle:index.of.admin
    Description- Locate "admin" directories that are accessible from directory listings.

    6) Google Search:- inurl:"nph-proxy.cgi" "start browsing"
    Description- Returns lots of proxy servers that protects your identity online

    Google’s Advance Search Query Syntaxes:

    Below discussed are various Google’s special commands and I shall be explaining each command in brief and will show how it can be used for critical information digging.

    Google Search:-[ intitle: ]

    The “intitle:” syntax helps Google restrict the search results to pages containing that word in the title. For example, “intitle: login password” (without quotes) will return links to those pages that has the word "login" in their title, and the word "password" anywhere in the page.

    Similarly, if one has to query for more than one word in the page title then in that case “allintitle:” can be used instead of “intitle” to get the list of pages containing all those words in its title. For example using “intitle: login intitle: password” is same as querying “allintitle: login password”.

    Google Search:-[ inurl: ]

    The “inurl:” syntax restricts the search results to those URLs containing the search keyword. For example: “inurl: passwd” (without quotes) will return only links to those pages that have "passwd" in the URL.

    Similarly, if one has to query for more than one word in an URL then in that case “allinurl:” can be used instead of “inurl” to get the list of URLs containing all those search keywords in it. For example: “allinurl: etc/passwd“ will look for the URLs containing “etc” and “passwd”. The slash (“/”) between the words will be ignored by Google.

    Google Search:-[ site: ]

    The “site:” syntax restricts Google to query for certain keywords in a particular site or domain. For example: “exploits” (without quotes) will look for the keyword “exploits” in those pages present in all the links of the domain “”. There should not be any space between “site:” and the “domain name”.

    Google Search:-[ filetype: ]

    This “filetype:” syntax restricts Google search for files on internet with particular extensions (i.e. doc, pdf or ppt etc). For example: “filetype:doc site:gov confidential” (without quotes) will look for files with “.doc” extension in all government domains with “.gov” extension and containing the word “confidential” either in the pages or in the “.doc” file. i.e. the result will contain the links to all confidential word document files on the government sites.

    Google Search:-[ link: ]

    “link:” syntax will list down webpages that have links to the specified webpage. For Example: “” will list webpages that have links pointing to the SecurityFocus homepage. Note there can be no space between the "link:" and the web page url.

    Google Search:-[ related: ]

    The “related:” will list web pages that are "similar" to a specified web page. For Example: “” will list web pages that are similar to the Securityfocus homepage. Note there can be no space between the "related:" and the web page url.

    Google Search:-[ cache: ]

    The query “cache:” will show the version of the web page that Google has in its cache. For Example: “” will show Google's cache of the Google homepage. Note there can be no space between the "cache:" and the web page url.

    If you include other words in the query, Google will highlight those words within the cached document. For Example: “ guest” will show the cached content with the word "guest" highlighted.

    Google Search:-[ intext: ]

    The “intext:” syntax searches for words in a particular website. It ignores links or URLs and page titles. For example: “intext:exploits” (without quotes) will return only links to those web pages that has the search keyword "exploits" in its webpage.

    Google Search:-[ phonebook: ]

    “phonebook” searches for U.S. street address and phone number information. For Example: “phonebook:Lisa+CA” will list down all names of person having “Lisa” in their names and located in “California (CA)”. This can be used as a great tool for hackers incase someone want to do dig personal information for social engineering.

    Remove YouTube Sidebar, Ads and Comments with this Simple Trick 

    Sidebar and comments are distractions as they draw apart audience mind from getting the crux of the video. In many scenarios, removing sidebar, advertisements and comments seem to be best option especially when you want viewers to focus on videos only. Situations in which you share YouTube links include presentations, web meetings, student notes, blog posts and teaching.
    youtube video with comments ads sidebar small
    Before: Cluttered Youtube Page
    youtube full screen video small
    After: Full Screen Video in Browser
    Click to enlarge Before and After effects.

    A normal YouTube page looks cluttered likes this. What we would like is browser window filled up with only with video like this.

    Hiding comments and sidebar is very simple. You can link videos that play full-screen or fill all browser window space by inserting _popup keyword in the video URL link.

    For example, if the YouTube link is

    You will have to add _popup word after watch, so that the video opens in full screen without sidebar and comments section. That is, the new video URL is

    Another method is to replace ” watch?v= ” by ” v/ “. So now, the link looks like – but this approach does force auto-start the video. 

    These are very simple tricks to avoid distractions and to show only what you really want to the audience. Use them freely in your web presentations and notes.
