Dimensions – Chrome Web Store

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/13

[WayBack/Archive.isDimensions – Chrome Web Store: A tool for designers to measure screen dimensions

This extension measures the dimensions from your mouse pointer up/down and left/right until it hits a border. So if you want to measure distances between elements on a website this is perfect. It doesn’t really work with images because there the colors change a lot pixel to pixel.

# Images & HTML Elements

Measure between the following elements: images, input-fields, buttons, videos, gifs, text, icons. You can measure everything you see in the browser.

# Mockups

Your designer handed you mockups as PNGs or JPEGs? Just drop them into Chrome, activate Dimensions and start measuring.

# Keyboard Shortcut

You can start and stop dimensions with the ALT + D shortcut.

# Area Boundaries

Wanna get the radius of a circle? Is text standing in your way? Press Alt to measure the dimensions of a connected area.

browser – How to connect a website has only IPv6 address without domain name? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/22

For my link archive: [WayBack] browser – How to connect a website has only IPv6 address without domain name? – Super User (thanks haimg):

According to RFC2732, literal IPv6 addresses should be put inside square brackets in URLs, e.g. like this:

http://[1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A]/index.html

If you also need to specify a port other then 80 to access the server it has to be placed after the closing bracket:

http://[1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A]:8888/index.html

Of course, you have to have end-to-end IPv6 connectivity to that host. E.g. if the server is not inside your own local network, you need to have IPv6 connectivity, either via your ISP (rare), or via some kind of IPv6 in IPv4 encapsulation (tunnel).

Chrome 78 update at least to 78.0.3904.108 to access saved passwords

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/27

If you have Chrome 78 before version 78.0.3904.108, there is a high chance you cannot access (some of) your saved passwords.

This has been fixed in 78.0.3904.108: [WayBack] Chrome 78 update has removed all saved passwords for over 50 users – Google Chrome Enterprise Help

Google is aware of an issue causing saved passwords not to appear after upgrading to Chrome 78. Even though the passwords are not showing up in the UI, they haven’t been lost or deleted.

The fix is included in version 78.0.3904.108 which is now pushing at 25% for Mac/Win/Android and 100% for Linux (and will ramp over the next few days based on the field issues and feedback).
