Time For Cake: Closed Chrome tabs tip & 3 links
November 11, 2012
I often find myself in situations in which:• I’m looking to get back to a website in a tab I accidentally just closed a moment ago• I want to open a series of tabs I recently had open all at the same time (but I accidentally closed my browser window and therefore closed all those open tabs).As I’m usually using Chrome, it’s very, very easy for me to access these recently closed tabs. Here’s how I do it:1) Open up a fresh, blank tab2) Look down at the bottom right of the screen3) Click the “Recently Closed” button4) Choose which tab or group of tabs I wish to open.So easy. I love it. There’s an even easier way, though. If you’re looking to just open up the last tab you closed, click Ctrl + Shift + T. The tab you most recently closed pops back open in the blink of an eye.
1. http://tinyurl.com/9rxdqwa – Earlier this year, Google Maps launched photo tours that allow you to virtually fly around over 15,000 of the world’s most famous landmarks. The best part? The tours are in 3D.2. http://vimeo.com/41000314 – Created for poor city dwellers who find themselves suffocating in the shade of tall buildings during the day, the Bright Light app uses buildings’ heights and the sun’s path during the day to calculate and pinpoint exactly where the sun is shining at all times. You can see how shadows will change during the day and even get directions on how to get to your next destination while staying in the sun. 3. http://vimeo.com/40147990 – Last week I was introduced to Maily. I don’t have children, but I love this iPad app. I even told my sister-in-law it was mandatory she downloads it for her iPad when my niece gets closer to 4. Maily is your kid’s first email account. It’s specially designed for kids and allows them to send messages to family members and close friends (that you pre-approve, of course) using pictures, drawings, letters, photos and tools like digital pencils, paint brushes, stickers and backgrounds. Everything is visual and easy to use and, of course, Maily comes with extensive built-in parental controls so you’re in charge of who your child can communicate with the entire time. Definitely watch the video introduction first (http://vimeo.com/40147990), then head over to the main site for more details (http://maily.com).Erin Pheil is the owner of timeforcake creative media-the Web Design & Strategy company voted #1 in Best of Summit.
