    Ah Google Chrome, the amazinlg useful (for Google) spy tool that allows browser applications to run in the background when the browser is CLOSED and this is the DEFAULT setting.

  2. I don’t know if you noticed that, but Hover Zoom is not a good friend for youtuber. Why?. Well, if you mouseover the thumbnails that appear as soon as a video ends, Hover Zoom will not open the thumbnail picture, it will open the VIDEO (with sound included)!! so you don’t need to enter each one of the 9 suggested videos, you can watch them right there though. Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday) Marcelo.

    My favorite Chrome extension is unpinterested! When searching Google for images, I don’t want to see Pinterest images. If I wanted to see Pinterest images, I would search Pinterest. An added bonus is when searching Google for ANYTHING, the results don’t include Pinterest.

  4. “An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been doing a little
    homework on this. And he actually ordered me dinner simply because
    I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss
    this topic here on your blog.”

  5. Its great to see that you not only recovered your investment but made a decent sum out of it. Also, well said about the Chrome extension for the “Gardening Niche” Its all about creativity. I too hope to plan my projects for long haul just as yours instead of mulling over short term chases. Thanks again.

  6. Another great extension is ‘Search Google for Image’. Right clicking the image above gives links that tell us it is some sort of speaker that bombards a microprocessor with sound waves that force it to accept commands. The heading for the article is ‘It’s Possible to Hack a Phone with Sound Waves’. I’d love it to have been a USB microscope though, but I suspect they are out there.

  7. I love chrome extensions. They make life easy. I use Instagram extensions to improve my uploads.

  8. As always, a very useful and entertaining video. Nice job! I can’t remember if you’ve ever talked about whether there are any extensions that will darken the text on webpages. A lot of them have text that is a light gray instead of black, and with my poor vision I have trouble reading them.

Hope this helps as many people who have lost their hard earn money to scammers out of trust, you can reach him through the link below for help to recover your scammed funds and thank me later.
