Your web browser saves a lot of information about where you go and what you do online while you’re surfing the Web. The sites you visit, copies of the images and text you view, cookies, and information you type into form fields (such as username and password or your mailing address and credit card number) are all saved to your computer’s hard drive and web browser cache for the sake of convenience so that those pages can load faster or your browser can suggest auto-filling the address of a site you visited before.

你的浏览器会记录下所有你浏览过的网页或者搜索过的内容。这样是为了让你再次使用的时候更快捷一些,但也带来了关于隐私的一些不便。

However, if you use a shared or public computer, you may not want the web browser to remember your website logins, history, or even your usernames. Maybe you don’t want your spouse to discover you ordered flowers for her at FTD.com when she types f into the address bar. Maybe you don’t want your roommate to know that you searched for “apartments for rent” on Google last night.

但是,如果你使用的是公共的电脑,那么你可能不希望你的浏览记录被别人看到。

This hack explains how to sweep away your browsing tracks after you finish surfing the Web using history clearing tools and built-in private browsing features.

本章教你怎么清除浏览记录。(想必大家都知道吧。。我就不详细介绍了)

Websites go offline. They move, occasionally suffer from temporary unavailability or errors, or become slow to respond because of technical difficulties or a period of high user demand. Some websites may not be reachable from your particular Internet connection or network. In those cases, when you need the information right away, you need a mirror of that website’s content.

所有的网站都有可能因为某种原因而被注销,或者变更地址,又或者因为技术原因无法登陆。有些网站可能因为你所在的网络原因而无法进入(例如被墙)。如果你急需这个网站里面的一些信息,你可以利用这个网站的一些镜像文件。

The launch of Google Maps (http://maps.google.com), the search engine’s online geographical mapping application, ushered in a revolution in visualizing location-based data. Not only do Google Maps’ built-in features help you find establishments, addresses, and driving directions, but Google opened its maps interface to third-party developers for their own use. The result is a host of Google Maps mashups, which plot sets of data onto web-based maps.

Google地图的出现给可视化地图数据带来了翻天覆地的变化。Google地图本身提供了许多相关的服务,不仅如此,它还把程序的端口开放出来,让更多的人可以更好的利用Google地图。

You’re designing a new brochure, PowerPoint presentation, website, or flyer, and you need the right image to use with it fast. Put your hands in the air and step away from the cheesy clip art. Thanks to organizations such as Creative Commons, licenses such as the GNU Free Documentation License, and the public domain, there are tons of photos, songs, movies, and documents freely available for you to download and republish without fear of the copyright police.

Most web browsers have a built-in search box next to or integrated with the address bar for quick access to search engines. By default, this search box is a front door to major engines like Google or Bing. However, sometimes you know what site you want to search within, like Wikipedia or Amazon, but you want to skip the part where you go to Google or Bing results first, and instead just search the site directly using your browser’s built-in search feature. Keyword searches are customizable, keyword-based searches that let you do just that: execute a search from your Firefox or Chrome address bar. Using these special searches significantly speeds up queries on your no default searches at sites such as IMDB.com or YouTube.

许多浏览器都自带搜索栏或者可以直接在地址栏里面搜索。默认的情况下,他们是使用Google或者Bing的搜索引擎。但是,如果你想直接搜索某个网站内的内容的时候(例如淘宝或者亚马逊),可以利用浏览器自带搜索引擎的一些特性来实现这一目的。关键词搜索是可以订制的,利用浏览器自带的关键词搜索,可以在Firefox或者Chrome的地址栏里面完成搜索。你可以很快的搜索IMDB或者YouTube上的内容。
