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 then. Full 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.

Got a nice error message from Google Chrome today and wonder what the “true” means (:
The text is this:
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 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!!

About 9 months ago I posted about HTTPS Everywhere | Electronic Frontier Foundation hoping someone would port the HTTPS Everywhere extension for Firefox to force HTTPS in other browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer et cetera.
In the mean time, I found out about HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security), which is supported by FireFox 4, and Chrome 12.
Also in the mean time I found about a few HTTPS enforcer extensions for other browsers.
For instance, there are two similar Google Chrome Extensions to HTTPS Everywhere:
Internet Explorer does not have such an extension.
Opera has the Security Enhancer extension.
Next to HTTPS Everywhere, there are the ForceHTTPS and NoScript extension for FireFox (NoScript also supports HSTS).
FireFox 4 supports HSTS out of the box.
So now you have a choice!
