TL;DR: Don't track me Google is a user script I made that allows you to copy normal URLs, while hiding the referrer to the sites you're visiting. Installation "Don't track me Google" at the Chrome Web Store. "Don't track me Google" at Userscripts.org Explanation I have written a method which replaces the link-modifying rwt function with a bogus ...

See if the userscript found here for Google search works for you. I have been using it for a while now, and it's been working more often than not for me. Edit: Here is an addon for Firefox: Google search link fix

Appears the rwt function is invoked upon onmousedown, and thereby rewriting the href. If we could override this behaviour, then we should be set. In firefox I inserted the following JavaScript into a bookmarklet which can then be executed anytime I wish to prevent the (slighly annoying) link-rewriting on a given Google SERP: javascript:function ...

Have you considered the fogbugz student & startup edition?

Email image bugs like this are nothing new. People have been trying to use them for years. That's why Gmail by default doesn't display images in email until you explicitly tell it to (usually by marking the sender as trusted). I don't allow images to display in any message except from a very few select senders. Sure, it requires an extra click if I decide I ...

For short URLs, you can just copy the green text under the title as that's the same URL just without protocol lead. For long URLs (those that have ellipsis in the green text), you either need a script or use a semi-complex workaround. A script is necessary because Google modifies links with its own script on mouse click. If you hover over a results link, ...

I use the Firefox Redirect Remover add-on. After this is installed, right click on a redirected URL in the browser gives an option to copy cleaned URL.

No, this is impossible. There is no reliable way to know what happens to an email once it leaves your client. One technique for confirming an email is read is to include an html image tag (usually hidden) that references an image on a server in your control. If the image is opened, this means the email is opened. However, most email clients block the ...

If you own the website then Google Analytics is the way to go. If you don't own the website then it'll be a lot trickier. You can use something like Alexa ranks to track traffic generically, but that won't tell you anything about specific traffic. Or if you'd rather track the traffic you are sending to that page from your link I'd suggest linking to the ...

Using Safari, it is easy to make your own extension to handle this. I used Develop > Show Extension Builder and added "www.google.com" as an Allowed Domain and then the following script as an End Script in the Injected Extension Content section: if (window.top === window) { var els = document.getElementsByClassName("l"); for (var i in els) { ...

You can have a look to JIRA, it's not Free but very cheap for small number of users (10$ for 10 users)

You can tell your browser to skip images from that host, without altering the hosts file. If you use Chrome: Open the Settings Choose "Content settings..." Click on "Manage Exceptions" under Images Enter a Regular Expression pattern that matches the host. In this case, the RegEx equivalent of ".yesware.com" would be "[.]yesware.com". Choose "Block" in ...

It depends on what you want to do. If you just want to keep dead-simple text notes in the cloud, which can be used for anything from Todo lists to writing your manifesto, SimpleNote works for me. If you want to have very specific files synced between computers (and the cloud) of any type, I use and love DropBox. If you're looking specifically for a Todo ...

Why? The .NET version users have on their machines makes is immaterial. In fact whether they have .NET on their machine or not is immaterial. Any .NET code in your site is run server side not client side.

We use Unfuddle (www.unfuddle.com) and its great. It's rock solid, supports multiple projects, issues a ticket number for every new ticket, allows discussion (via comments and 'notebooks') and has a simple and a clean design. In addition to all this, its only $9 for the smallest paid plan which allows 4 active projects and 10 developers. Their free plan, ...

If you want to keep Google's redirection and only selectively copy & paste some URLs here are other possibilities. Solution with keyboard (note, this only works in Windows): You can navigate to the desired search result link: in Firefox: use Tab and Shift+Tab to navigate between links; in Chrome: press Tab to move the focus into the page, then Up and ...

This might be a little too philosophical, but there's no way to ensure someone has actually read your email. Even the received/read notifications do not ensure this. Why? Because it is a simple question of not being able to read someone's mind. The notification ensures only that someone has seen that the message was received. My way of dealing with this is ...

We use Trac at work, and it does all the things that you have set out above, with the added bonus of integrating with subversion and other source controls programs.

I am also often annoyed by this. So my simple solution is to use the mobile version of Google's site: http://www.google.com/pda or http://www.google.com/m (This link does not work in IE.) These sites will give you the URLs that go directly to the target sites, no more redirection. Please note that the search results from these sites will be a ...

Just paste this in your URL bar and press enter: javascript:alert(unescape(prompt("URL","").match("url=([^&]*)")[1]))

This would be a direct privacy violation, therefore such feature mustn't be available, and isn't. However, we can see others' favorites (unless it is disabled) and under some circumstances (such as sharing your activities on Twitter, Facebook, etc.) Liked videos.

Logging of IP's is something that the site can choose to do or not, however even if you did have the IP, privacy protection laws mean you would need to have law enforcement involved to contact the ISP (who are required by law in most countries to keep a log of exactly who had which IP when, but only for 2 years) to get any further information. Further, ...

If you just want a calendar that anyone in your company can see and add their own vacation time, then I suggest Google Calendar. You can easily create a calendar and share among many people. You might take it one step further and go with Google Apps. That way you could just open the calendar to the entire company instead of having to invite/remove people ...

Maybe you can just use a Google Spreadsheet to do that? Or if you need something more database beyond a simple spreadsheet, you can try Ragic Builder. It has pretty good search and analytical database features.

I would highly recommend Redmine, it's very close to JIRA and free.

Concerning the keywords I'd classify your use case as basically a work log, which for obvious reasons usually runs under the name of time tracking, plus some kind of reporting and/or billing respectively invoicing, and maybe a hint of project management, though the latter is usually aimed at more complex scenarios (a respective app might still cover your ...

HTTP cookies are the most common. They are usually written and read by the site you are visiting (the "first party"), but also (depending on your browser and browser settings) written and read by third-party elements on the page you are visiting. Also common are small image elements, served from various tracking servers (these are common in commercial ...

I'm not sure about the exact working of YesApp but it can be mislead using editing your hosts file for sure... find your hosts file at %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows of course)... Add this line to it : 127.0.0.1 http://*.yesware.com and 127.0.0.1 http://www.yesware.com to it.Now Restart...scripts will now report to localhost instead of ...
