Opera Next Browser for Windows and Mac Released

Opera has been focusing lot on their applications these days, few days back we talked about the new Opera browser which has been released for Android and now it seems that with all those same features including the Off-Road mode, Speed Dial and others they have launched their new version of browser for the Windows and Mac OS by the name of Opera Next and today we will be talking about that in this post.

Speed Dial has some definite advantage over the quick tabs which we use these days in Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. In the other browser you have some reserved space for the number of speed tabs on the single screen like in Google Chrome we usually see the mostly used 8 tabs on a screen but it would have been helpful if we could have more than 8 quick tabs for the websites which we usually visit a lot.\

Revamped Speed Dial

So, Opera Next helps you in this case by allowing you to create the folders for such tabs, you will just have to drag and drop the tabs on one another and then the folders will be created which is quite similar to creating a folder on iPhones for the applications on the screen.

Discover feature is again useful for the users who want to be updated with latest news whenever they open the new window of their browser and this mode will ask you the area of interest and thus will keep you updated with the latest news from that area (when you launch the browser).

Now whenever we talk about looking at the content on 2 tabs at the same time then we break the tabs into 2 different windows and then put them side by side. But this problem can be solved by Stash feature which will allow you to resize the tabs in the same window of the browser.

The other 2 things are the Off-Road mode and the new download manager which will be seen in the new version of the browser. ‘Off-Road’ mode is like the in-built pocket feature on your browser, wherein you can mark any webpage to be read later and they will saved on your PC so that you can read them even if you laptop is not connected to internet. You can click here to download this new version of Opera and thus have this new experience.

If you want to check the climatic conditions or you want to know about the exact temperature in that area, if you want to convert an amount from one unit to another (whether it is related to currency or distance or any other category), if you want to know the score updates of any match happening around the world., then you will just have to type the command in the chat box and then you will know the exact result. You will have to type the e-mail address of Google Guru as guru@googlelabs.com and then invite your Google Guru for Chat and then it will be always online and available for your queries.

Automatic Login In Facebook When You Are Logged In With Google or Yahoo Account

Yes, automatic login in facebook is possible, provided you are already logged in your google account in the same internet browsers like google chrome, facebook and internet explorer. This way your online life could little easier as you don’t have to enter the facebook password and username every time you go to facebook login page, you will be automatically logged in.

The best thing you can do is making your browser remember the password, in order to make logging in easier for you. But then it might not be possible for you to do the same when you are at your workplace then what can be the other smart way to do that. Keeping this thing in mind Facebook has come up with a new feature with the help of which you will be able to log into your Facebook account without entering the credentials even if that system does not remember your password.

You will have to link your Facebook account with another account by going to the setting option and then adding another. Procedure to do the same has been mentioned later in the post. Once you link any account to your Facebook profile then you will not have to enter the credentials to enter Facebook profile, if you have already entered that linked account. For example, if you have linked your Google account with Facebook, then once you open you Google account you will not have to provide credentials while accessing your Facebook account.

Auto Login In Facebook

Here is the procedure to do the same. Please follow this step by step.

Step 1

Login to your account as you used to by providing your login credentials and then click on the drop present on the right top corner of the screen (as mentioned in the screenshot).

Step 2

Then click on the option named Account Settings (as mentioned in the screenshot).

Step 5

Then Facebook will ask permissions to use that linked accounts information. Once you provide the Access to Facebook, your account will be linked and then you will not have to enter the username and password for Facebook, when you have already opened that linked account on that system.

But then it creates a vulnerability of your account to get hacked because now the hacker know you Google Password, then he or she might hack your Facebook account too. Please let us know if you face any trouble or need further information related to this feature of Facebook.

Autorun Security Flaw For Windows XP, Vista and 2008 Server edition

So now the patch has been released for the disabling the Autorun on Windows XP, Vista and 2000. After such a long time, they have finally thought of doing something about it and now Autorun will not effect your OS anymore. This really troubled most of the users as this file made very easier for the viruses to attack the system. Only a removable storage media was supposed to be inserted and then it automatically performs the task, which was used by most of the viruses attacking Windows system. In this post I will be talking about this news.

In Windows 7, this feature was disabled as it already troubled a lot and users wanted a consistent solution to this problem and so they came out with this solution. Autorun was a simple file which was placed in the root of the removable media, so when that media is attached with the system it will automatically execute that Virus and then your system will be infected though you did not launched anything from the USB drive. So you can conclude that this was the most convenient and the easiest way to attach the system.Autorun has been disabled for all the removable storage media, so if you have got Genuine Windows on your system then go for updating it and the patch will be installed on your system which will stop Autorun from being executed when any removable media is inserted on your system.

This update was categorized under Important and non-security issue, but Autorun should have been considered under security related issue, Microsoft clarified that Security issues are considered to be a product specific vulnerabilities but Autorun is different as compared to them and it affect shiny media such as CDs and DVDs. So, go on sharing this piece of information with your friends and then please let us know about your own views and the changes effected by this information on your daily internet routine or if you have got anything new related to this then just put them down in the comments sections and we will be glad to share it with all the readers on your behalf (if we found it genuine and useful). I am sure that this will really help you to work intelligently on internet. So, keep reading and surfing!!!

  • Your application will be able to get the input data from all the sensors available in Kinect like depth sensor, color camera sensor and the four-element microphone array, this will help them to have access on the low level of data, in other words the data will be raw, it will not be processed. So, you can play around with it.
  • Skeletal Tracking, includes the movements or the gestures made by your body, it will be able to read the body movements by giving it the skeletal co-ordinates, making it possible for you to make gesture-oriented applications.
  • Advanced Audio Capabilities will help Kinect to capture the current voice source by elimination of the background noise and creating a beam. This captures voice source will be easily integrated with Windows Speech recognition API.
  • The size of the SDK after getting installed is even less than 100MB, so you can realize the installation will not be a problem, it will get installed like any other tool. To download this tool you will click the link mentioned below. Let me tell you that this link is available for free, as it is the beta version of SDK and the release for the commercial version of this Developer kit has not been decided yet.
  • Documentation is of high-quality and clearly specifies each and every bit of SDK with interactive presentation of data in the documents.
