As far as I know it is not possible to share articles in Google Reader to Google Plus. Google Reader expects a custom Send To link in the format of a URL where as Google Plus functionality requires Javascript to post/share items. EDIT The only alternative I can suggest is this Chrome Extension which adds the Google+1 button to your toolbar. This enables ...

As of May 2012, the recommended tool (according to the owner - AVOS) for using Delicious in the browser is via the bookmarklet. This was announced in a blog post (Update on the browser extensions) from January 15, 2012. The reason is that the company has decided to focus on improving the service and providing the best possible experience across all browsers, ...

Facebook does not provide a way to have groups that anyone can join instantly. Someone already in the group must add them, or they can request approval from a group admin. The likely reason for not providing this is that it would attract spammers. Old-style open groups had spam problems and they did not even have the new group notification or chat ...

Luckily, someone has already created a userscript that does what you want- it may or may not have been the original asker. Here you go: Resurrect Google Cache & Related links. I realize that the asker has probably already solved the problem, I'm just writing this for posterity.

I came up with some solutions and they seem to work at the moment: First, the easiest one. Use the bookmarklet I have mentioned here. When you click the bookmark, YouTube video will stop. If you need a button, use this userscript. I recently created my own Google Chrome Extension. If you are a Chrome user, you can make use of this extension instead of the ...

There are many ways of writing down your URL's. I personally am a sucker for Delicious even though the service has been facing some issue. The only reason I am stuck with them is because I have over 4000 bookmarks and have a few stacks which I like. Usually, you can use a combination of one or more services: Look at Faveous. Its a little buggy with ...

Ghostery and Disconnect act as content blockers (if you've enabled blocking) and their innards are very similar. Heres an answer I provided recently on Ghostery support board: This question is asked pretty often on our support boards (I work for Ghostery).

With the recent changes to Google Reader, this is now possible. You can either click the +1 button at the bottom of an item and optionally add a comment, or you can click in the Share... field at the top right corner of the window. The Share... field lets you share without adding the item to your +1 list.

In short: not really. You could, however, stick your PDF resumé online somewhere (say in a Dropbox public folder) and link to it in your signature, which will get past corporate attachment filters. However, I would recommend that you link to your LinkedIn profile, in your signature. If you don't have one, create one today. Like the service or not, it's a ...

Evernote doesn't support pushing content into the client. Having the client continuously polling their servers at a very frequent interval would place a lot of unnecessary load on their servers, which is probably why the minimum is 5 minutes. The best solution is to manually press the 'Sync' button in the client if you want to immediately view a note that ...

Looks like I’m a bit late. As Sk Nepal mentioned, you can use a simple bookmarklet to address the issue. It will be workable as long as YouTube has a static player ID. Here is my version of the bookmarklet.

If you use Chrome on all those devices (it's available on iOS now), the simplest option would probably be using Chrome's built-in bookmark synching feature. Just make sure you're logged in the same Google Account on those Chrome instances and you'll see bookmarks and web opene tabs from other devices. If that cant work for you and you can do a bit of code, ...

I'm not finding any apps that have an initial charge either. I am finding apps that require you to pay money in order to use them, but just not install them. Netflix, for example. You can install the app for nothing... the service is just useless without an account. FreeMovies.com is another one. The Chrome app costs nothing. However, in order to ...

Using your browser's find-function is indeed the way to do this, as per the previous answer. But be aware that the searched-on text is not necessarily included as text in all the items in your search results. For example, if you have searched for "obscure phrase", and someone has a website that includes a picture for which the alt-text is "obscure phrase", ...

Select a link from your Google search results, and click on it to visit that website. Press the keyboard combination Ctrl+F or Cmd+F if you are on Mac (the same keyboard combination works for Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox) to display a Find (on This Page) search box. Type the searched for text in the Find search box and press Enter or use one of ...

This Chrome extension automatically stops autoplay at Youtube but keeps on buffering. It's possible to open several tabs without the need to pause each one of them. The greatest drawback is that it will also pause playlists.

What you are asking for is not possible in Google Talk or GMail integrated chat at all. And also it all depends on their cannot be any third-party extension or tool to implement it. It all depends on the service. It is possible in Skype because Skype allows it. Different services take these things differently. For example, here in SE, we can edit a comment ...

According to the FAQ's you can in fact have apps that require payment first to download/use much like the Apple app store. I would suspect that you never see paid ones, simply because if there is something close to it already free then of course not many people would go for the paid one therefore it's probably not popular. I would assume since their ...

All you need to do to get a cached version of a page is mouse over the result, hit the little arrow that expands the page preview, and hit the "Cached" link. If you avoided instant previews like I did, you might never have realized this was there. Bing also ...

Unfortunate that there was never an answer marked for this one. Thought I'd chime-in in 2012. There is now a way to tailor the options in the Google black bar. In the bar go to More > Even More From there you can select which tools will appear by selecting Add to Black Bar You can even click and drag options in the black bar to re-order them, or ...

Chrome supports user scripts, so you could simply write some JavaScript to add a link to the bar. If you look at the page source in the Web Inspector, you can see that the list is inside the div #gbz. You could create another list item and add it here.
