When http:://Feedly.com doesn’t start with any more: start it through https://Feedly.com (via: @feedly your news. delivered.)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/03/16

Recently when starting Feedly through http://feedly.com, I got this message in Chrome on my Retina MacBook Pro:

Is feedly blocked?

Feedly is not able to load. It is probably because one of your extensions is blocking it. If you run Adblock, HTTPSEverywhere, Awesome screenshot etc.. please make sure that feedly.com is white listed.

Ask a question

I paused AdBlock: same thing. I don’t use HTTPSEverywhere or the other tools mentioned.

Solution: start using https://feedly.com. Since I prefer https anyway, I can live with that (: Read the rest of this entry »

Speedup Youtube Playback: Watch Lectures In Half The Time with YouTube’s HTML5 Player

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2013/09/13

I wish I had kept an eye on it after it was announced (which was 3.5 years ago, but not very stable): The Youtube HTML5 viewer trial.

It has come a long way since thenFull screen it is still not as good as the official one, but the main attraction introduced since is: configurable playback speed!

Yes, you can choose playback at 25%, 50%, 100%, 150% or 200% of the original speed. Ideal for lectures or watching replays of conference sessions.

Google Chrome funny error message: trueAre you sure you want to leave this page?

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2013/02/21

Got a nice error message from Google Chrome today and wonder what the “true” means (:

true

The text is this:

[Confirm Navigation]

true

Are you sure you want to leave this page?

[Leave this Page]    [Stay on this page]

You can use Ctrl-C to copy, then you get the text below:

trueAre you sure you want to leave this page

That means it is not a standard Windows MessageBox, as pressing Ctrl-C there would copy the title and buttons as well.

Gif Stopper – Chrome Web Store

Gif Stopper will stop animated gif images with using the escape key.

We all love animated gifs but some times they are too distracting, that’s with Gif Stopper comes in. Hit the escape key and the image stops. Most browsers have this build-in and now Google Chrome has it also.

Most importantly: it WORKS with Google+ Plus!!
