Internet Explorer 11 Context Menu Chooser Application Version 3

This is an application that allows you to pick and choose which of the many context menu add-ons you would like enabled in your browser. Internet Explorer does not support nested context menus so this I wrote this application to make it easy to enable and disable different menu items you may want to use (instead of separate scripts). The context menu items are broke up into 8 groups: Share-it, Analyze-it, Analyze-it-Scritch, Analyze-it-Viewdns, Plurk-it, Google-it, Look-it-up, and IE-Utility. The IE-Utility menu items are usually located in the Tools menu in the menubar on top which isn’t shown by default (just … Continue reading Internet Explorer 11 Context Menu Chooser Application Version 3

Internet Explorer Context Menu Chooser Application Version 2

With this new version the Analyze-it context menus were updated to the most recent version. Analyze-it contained so many menu items that I had to add a counter to the interface to indicate when there are more than the twenty menu item visible limit. The menu counter is only active for page context (basic context menu the page provides – nothing selected in other words) menu items. I suppose when there are more than twenty selected text context menus I’ll have to add another one; this is good for now. The counter only indicates when you are over the visible … Continue reading Internet Explorer Context Menu Chooser Application Version 2

IE11 Menu Addons – New Version – 1 – Happy New Year!

  This release basically fixes a few bugs and adds Google Music Search to the menu. I’ll be using whole numbers from now on on these installers (just makes things easier). I had to remove tumblr from the menu as their format changed (no more sharing with a GET request). Fixed the Fetch and Guess tools to be compliant with their new versions – so they should work properly. The spaces in query bug in Google Open Storage search was fixed – so multi word queries work properly. Download and Install IE11 Menu Addons for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 … Continue reading IE11 Menu Addons – New Version – 1 – Happy New Year!

Google Chrome and Opera Extension – Look-it-up, a Dictionary Context Menu Extension

Adds context menu item that looks up selected text on dictionary sites. You have the choice of dictionary.com, merriam-webster.com (dictionary and thesaurus), thefreedictionary.com, thesaurus.com, urbandictionary.com, wikipedia.org, wiktionary.org, and yourdictionary.com to look selected terms up with. There is an options page to enable or disable the different menu items included. This is actually a rewrite and improvement of an older version that looked up terms on dictionary.com exclusively. While using the old version, I eventually found myself in need of more options for this add-on so here it is.   manifest.json app.js options.html options.js Install Look-it-up Context Menu Extension in Chrome (Google … Continue reading Google Chrome and Opera Extension – Look-it-up, a Dictionary Context Menu Extension

Update – The You-Tube Search extension for Chrome is now renamed to uTube Search

Google is fussy about copyright stuff and browser extensions. I used a dash in the name to get around their copyright rules – they caught me. Google owns youtube.com, as well as you-tube.com apparently (even though it doesn’t resolve, it goes through google nameservers) – they don’t own utube.com (Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corporation does – I don’t think they’ll complain about my browser extension). So I think this new name will be OK (hopefully). I just want to mention that I am just trying to make searching youtube.com easier and more convenient  – nothing more.  I’m sorry if … Continue reading Update – The You-Tube Search extension for Chrome is now renamed to uTube Search

Google Chrome Extension – America Online (aol.com) Web Search, an Omnibox extension

Google Chrome Omnibox Search extension that enables you to search America Online (aol.com) from the Omnibox.  To use, simply type ‘aol’, a space, and your search query into the Omnibox and it will open your search results up in a new tab. While America Online has web search that also sports the ‘Powered By Google’ badge, America Online has had web search features for quite some time and I believe they supplement their results with their own. The ranking is different at the very least. manifest.json background.js Install America Online Web Search Extension (chrome store) Continue reading Google Chrome Extension – America Online (aol.com) Web Search, an Omnibox extension
