First/Last-Tab: Ctrl-1/9 (or Command-1/9): Switch Between Tabs in Any Browser Using Shortcut Keys

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/10

Only recently, I learned this works on just about any web-browser:

  • Ctrl-9 (macOS: Command-9) goes to LAST tab
  • Ctrl-1 (macOS: Command-1) goes go FIRST tab

Via: [WayBack] Switch Between Tabs in Any Browser Using Shortcut Keys

For those keyboard ninjas who hate using the mouse, switching between tabs in your browser window is essential since most people probably have a bunch of tabs open at once. […]

If you want to go to a specific tab, you can press CTRL + N, where N is a number between 1 and 8. Unfortunately, you can’t go past 8, so if you have more than eight tabs, you’ll have to use a different keyboard shortcut or just click on it. CTRL + 9 will take you to the last tab, even if there are more than 8!

Deleting the WebCache database – The IE browser cache | Apttech’s Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/15

[WayBack] Deleting the WebCache database – The IE browser cache | Apttech’s Blog quotes from WayBack: C drive space is using up on terminal server after upgrading to IE10 or IE11 – AsiaTech: Microsoft Azure & Development:

With the new cache implementation, the cache files are saved in %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache\ folder. And, the cache files will be created when a new user logs on.

Actually, the database is a file named WebCacheV01.dat in the cache folder, and its initial size could be around 20-32MB. The size of this file will keep increasing along with you browse more and more websites.

save the below contents into ClearIECache.cmd file and try to fun this file.

echo OFF
net stop COMSysApp
taskkill /F /IM dllhost.exe
taskkill /F /IM taskhost.exe
taskkill /F /IM taskhostex.exe
del /Q %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache\*.*
net start COMSysApp
echo ON

Furthermore, you’d better deploy the batch file to a logoff script of your local GPO, here are the steps.

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).

How to enable JavaScript in your browser and why

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/02

Just in case it’s not enabled yet: How to enable JavaScript in your browser and why

It even has some html to redirect to it, which I’ve replaced with the wayback machine (and put into a gist as WordPress kills noscript tag blocks and everything they contain.

For full functionality of this site it is necessary to enable JavaScript.
Here are the <a href="http://web.archive.org/web/20160402005258/http://www.enable-javascript.com/" target="_blank">
instructions how to enable JavaScript in your web browser</a>.

I needed it as at a client site, one of the embedded devices would show the message “Javascript is required to use this web portal” in various web browsers so I had to check the JavaScript status in each browser.
