Visual tab switching in Firefox 3.6

The upcoming Firefox browser (3.6) comes with some added features, for example the visual tab switching. By just pressing Ctrl + Tab key, you will get most recently used 9 tabs as a visual preview (Firefox 3.6 alfa1) and you can directly change the tab you want. (There is a similar add-on for previous versions)

Moreover the visual tabs preview includes a search bar to look for keywords among tab titles which is useful if you have more tabs.

To enable tab preview, you may want to set browser.ctrlTab.previews to true via about:config.

For the new behavior, that is, instead of moving to the next tab in the tab bar, you can also move to the previously used tab, set browser.ctrlTab.mostRecentlyUsed to true.[via]

For more information and features of the upcoming Firefox browser (3.6) available here and if you like you can download the alfa version of Firefox 3.6 from here.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
