Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Enhance Your Browsing with Hyperwords in Firefox

While browsing it is easy to find information that you would like to know more about, convert, or translate. The Hyperwords extension provides access to these types of resources and more in Firefox.
Using Hyperwords
Once the extension has finished installing you will be presented with a demo video that will let you learn more about how Hyperwords works.
For our first example we chose to look for more information concerning “WASP-12b” using Wikipedia. Notice the small bluish circle on the lower right of the highlighted term…it is the default access for the Hyperwords menu (access by hovering mouse over it).
If you hover over the Wikipedia (or other) link you can access the information in a scrollable popup window.
Or if you prefer click on the link to view the information in a new tab. Choose the style that best suits your needs.
Hyperwords is extremely useful for quick unit conversions.
Suppose you want to share a news story that you have found while browsing. Highlight the title, access Hyperwords, and choose your preferred sharing source.
You may need to authorize access for Hyperwords to post to your account.
Once you have authorized access you can start sharing those links very easily. This is just a small sampling of Hyperwords many useful features.
Preferences
Hyperwords has a nice set of preferences available to help you customize it. Alter the menu popup style, add or remove menu entries, and modify other functions for Hyperwords.
Conclusion
Hyperwords makes a nice addition to Firefox for anyone needing quick access to search, reference, translation, and other services while browsing

Trick 1. Anonymous Browsing

Use free Proxy Server which allows you to browse the web anonymously and access sites that are blocked. Here is the list of few proxy servers which I came across while Googling..

http://www.hidemyass.com/
http://www.browserjump.com/
http://www.ninjaproxy.com/
http://www.kproxy.com/
http://proxify.com/
http://www.w3privacy.com/
Trick 2. Google Translation

In case if your organization has blocked all the anonymous proxy servers, you can use Google Translator( also called as Google Language Tools) service as your proxy server. Google Translator translate pages from one language to another language. You can surf the blocked web pages by translating them from English to English(or any language which you desire).

Replace WEBSITE with your favorite site address in the following URL and start accessing them

http://www.google.com/translate?langpair=en'en&u=WEBSITE
Example: http://www.google.com/translate?langpair=en'en&u=http://mgopinath.blogspot.com



Trick 3. Google Mobile Search

Google Mobile search service translates HTML pages to mobile phone browser compatible by removing style sheets and java script. You can use this service to browse the web pages in text only format.
