A Brave browser extension to clear all completed downloads and hide the downloads icon in toolbar after two minutes. The Auto Clear Downloads Extension was cloned from the Always Clear Downloads 2 Extension which would auto clear downloads after 5 seconds. Like my 30 second version better? [Buy me a cup of coffee].

I published the Auto Clear Downloads Extension source code on GitHub. Feel free to review the source materials and provide me with your feedback. As for me, I love it! But hey, I am biased.

Recently had a client who was unable to print individual emails from their online Outlook.com account when using their Google Chrome browser.

I was able to resolve their printing of individual Outlook.com emails on Chrome by simply disabling a browser Add-on Extension (in our case Grammarly).

In this article I cover other potential solutions that may assist you with resolving your inability to print individual Outlook.com emails from your Google Chrome web browser.

Google Chrome Tab Cards

The new Tab Hover Cards feature introduced in the recently released Google Chrome version 78 isn’t bad. As I understand it the Tab Hover Cards feature is still under development. Perhaps it will improve, but as it stands now it is just an annoyance and I would like to disable it and get back to my tool-tip upon tab hover. This article will show you how to do just that.

Disable Tab Hover Cards in Chrome #

  1. Within the address type the following text and press the enter key: chrome://flags
  2. Within the “Search flags” box enter “Tab Hover” and press the enter key.
  3. From the “Tab Hover Cards” drop down box select “Disabled“.
  4. Restart Chrome using the handy Relaunch button that appears at the bottom right of your screen.

Google Chrome Logo

As of Google Chrome 76, perhaps even in earlier releases, the browser began hiding the full web address of visited web page when not actively in the address bar. In particular they were hiding the URL protocol (HTTP/HTTPS) and the WWW prefix. We agree, those elements are understood. However, it makes editing the URL difficult since those elements reappear when attempting to do so. If it would simply keep it hidden that would be fine but try adding a sub-domain prefix and you’ll see what we mean.

When you give in to style over function you get Apple. Nothing wrong with that if that is your preference.

Google Chrome Dark Theme by Endurtech

There are 50 plus “Dark Mode” themes, as of this post, on the Google Chrome Web Store. Even so, I just needed a break and wanted to try doing something new. Figured why not try designing and fine tuning my own Chrome dark mode theme?

The process proved to be interesting and relatively straight forward. For $5 bucks I was able to get it published on the Google Chrome Web Store. I also published the theme source code and design file on GitHub. Feel free to review the source materials and provide me with your feedback. As for me, I love it! But hey, I am biased.

Google Chrome Logo

All Chromium (an open-source browser project) based internet browsers (such as Google Chrome, Brave, Firefox and Microsoft Edge) allow for the automatic opening of a downloaded file. For example, upon downloading a .jpg image you can select to have all future .jpg images open automatically upon download.

This may come in handy for certain file types. However, this feature is most often triggered accidentally, (at least in my case). To make matters worse, there is no opportunity to undo or reverse this option from the frontend. Not to worry, within this short article I will cover how you can disable this if you no longer need to automatically open your downloaded files upon completion.


Always Open Files of this Type
