When you launch a third-party program that runs in the background to be always available like a screenshot taking tool (e.g., Screenpresso), the icons are sometimes hidden in the overflow/pop-up tray area. While it is good to save space on the taskbar, you may want to keep some icons visible. For example, when you’re downloading with Internet Download Manager, keeping the download icon/status in the tray reminds you all the time that you’re currently downloading something, thus it can prevent you from doing anything that can tamper the download progress.

If you’re still using the default download manager of Google Chrome instead of a third-party downloader such as Internet Download Manager or EagleGet, and you want it to show the download speed, you might like this one. [click to continue…]
This restartless add-on for Firefox provides three ways to open new tab next to the current one:
- Click on the new tab button, which the extension adds to the the toolbar.
- Perform a middle click on the “new tab” button in the tab bar.
- Keyboard shortcut ctrl+shift+T
It’s a good choice if you still want to keep Ctrl + T intact, but if you want to alter the default behavior of this default hotkey instead, you can use extensions such as Tab Mix Plus, All Tabs Helper, or Open Tabs Next to Current. The last one would be an ideal pick if you prefer a lightweight one that works right out of the box.
Tips: The extension places the new tab button far on the right side of the main toolbar. You can drag and drop it somewhere else (e.g., between the address bar and search bar) so that you can reach it quicker.
