Link – Node nmap: Scan a network for computers using nmap

Jason Gerfen wrote a package for using nmap with node.js if you’re interested.

From jsclasses.org:
“This is a Node.js module that can scan a network for computers using nmap.

It uses the nmap program to either discover local computers in the same network address range or scan a network of remote computers within a given range.

It outputs a listing of details computers found including IP addresses as well opened ports that were found.”

America-Online-Web-Search, Browser Extension, Google Chrome, Javascript

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.

Amazon-Web-Search, Browser Extension, Google Chrome, Javascript

Google Chrome Extension – Amazon Web Search, an Omnibox extension

Google Chrome Omnibox Search extension that enables you to search the web using Amazon from the Omnibox.  While still experimental at Amazon and powered by Google; if Amazon turns its computing might towards web search – we’re all in for great results. To be fair, Amazon’s web search experiment is named Amazon Smart Search (which is easily confused with its commercial endeavors) (besides, how would ‘___ query term here’ look to you every day while using it?) – not Amazon Web Search (which is used in the extension). Also, I feel its fair to mention that there’s almost twice as many paid results (ads) on these result pages.

To use, simply type ‘aws’, a space, and your search query into the Omnibox and it will open your search results up in a new tab.
