Google Chrome : Hybrid of all

 

  • Webkit as rendering engine like Safari
  • Tabstyles are from Flock
  • Startup page similar to Opera speed-dial and Flock myhome page
  • Paste and go in the address bar like Opera
  • No menu bar like IE 7
  • Tab-to-window and vice versa from Opera/Safari
  • Incognito browsing similar to Private Browsing
  • Create Application Shortcuts like Mozilla Prism

 

What’s new in Google Chrome

 

  • No two separate textboxes for URL and for Search
  • Every tab is a separate process
  • Innovative Search, composite of Tortoise Merge (any Textdiff app), Firefox’s (Highlight All) findbox positioned similar to Safari
  • Built-in support for Google Gears
  • Above all its from the giant Google

Google Chrome : The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)

 

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).

Click on OK to terminate the application

 

Symantec causes this issue and the temp. solution is to disable the sandbox. And the solution from Google Groups is 

 

You can try running Google Chrome with --no-sandbox (you need to edit the properties of the shortcut you use to launch it).

Update: 

  • I wrapped “--no-sandbox” in CODE tag now to resolve WP double hypen to emdash conversion.
  • Symantec is not the only known source to this issue.
  • To know more about what is sandbox? Please try the pages 25,26 on the book http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/

Not working anymore, but you are free to explore the code. Updates are welcome.

I have completed alternative way to view YouTube videos with FLV player of your choice (JW FLV player in this case). The flv files will not be download to the server, it streams directly from YouTube .

Download Source

 Update:

I have updated the script for 2 reasons

  1. Youtube deny if you call the url with file_get_contents() which is replaced with a curl function. So it needs curl now.
  2. Youtube added more http headers and now the index for direct download link is 8 earlier it was 4.

I will update the script soon with the following features

  • No need of allow_url_fopen = on in php.ini
  • Curl dependency to be removed.

Tamil.net links xTamil tool

Filed under: general,tools — Palani raja @ 9:45 am

I’m overwhelmed with happiness after I saw my Google analytics report today. This blog and the new tool which I wrote xTamil – English to Tamil convertor (Unicode) are linked in a Tamil portal site Tamil.net. They also list numerous no. of phonetic English to Tamil Unicode convertor, I promise you all that my tool will be unique after the completion (will take a month or two).

I would like to thank all of my friends for their encouragement. And also for the guys out there in Tamil.net for posting my tool in their site.

Thank you friends 🙂

Why does my dreamweaver look so beautiful?

Filed under: general,tools — Palani raja @ 2:55 pm

I don’t find an alternative title. Like anyone out there, I envy Textmate features where it is present in all the screencasts for PHP & RoR out there. So, I started looking for a Textmate alternate on windows, and came to this post Textmate envy. I tried the font Monaco (Textmate’s default), which looked beautiful in Firebug but not in Dreamweaver. Filled with dissapointment, I google again for a download for the font Monaco, then, eureka! I found this link, Programmers font. Which means, I am not alone, there are more people out there looking for the suitable replacement to Courier New (isn’t it time to change?). I have tried a few Monaca, Dejavu, Bitstream Vera.

My Dreamweaver

Finally, I come to the conclusion that Anonymous font certainly isn’t anonymous any more. It looks better than Monaca in windows, look at my screenshot. Today I hardly wrote any code, and spent more time on looking at my dreamweaver, its awesome!!.
