You might have come across ads not so long ago, in which young artists, college candidates, and entrepreneurs fix their instrumental works using a simple tool.

If you want to survive in this world of virtual crime, you need to keep your cyber-security up to date.

I know a graphic designer who loves opening multiple tabs on his browser of this image or that. But the problem is, he finds it difficult to save certain tabs for future reference. He doesn’t like bookmarking because it crowds up everything. That was before I suggested to him adding an AllTabs extension, and now, he couldn’t be happier. This extension allows him to save his currently opened tabs with just a click, and then later manage them on a priority basis. It conserves his time and energy and makes him a much more productive worker.

Literally meaning ‘raised from the dead’, Lazarus is a great retrieval extension. You know when you’re filling forms online, especially those long and elaborate ones, and suddenly your session times out or your internet drops, and when you try to get back to them, all the information that you spent hours typing is lost? Doesn’t it just want to make you pull your hair out in frustration? I know what you mean. However, Lazarus comes as a knight in shining armor to your aid by saving your data as you type along. This data is stored in an encrypted form on your device and is not sent to third-party servers. You can disable it when you’re not using it. So, download it as soon as you can and save yourself a lot of trouble.
