Block almost all Annoying Pop-Ups and Pop-Unders in Chrome

Weren’t popups enough annoying in themselves that we have popunders popping as well? If you are reading this I am guessing you might have faced this situation with yourself as well. First for clarity, lets see what are popups and popunders and what is the difference between?

Popups and Popunders are both ad types the sole difference being while popups pops over the current active window you are working upon, whereas the popunders are the ad window that opens under the current window you are working upon. While Popups feel more annoying, popunders feel less annoying but they are still an extra window that you haven’t opened.

Fill up your Browser for Images, Videos and Games with FullScreen Anything

Viewing images, videos and playing games in full screen looks good to the eyes, isn’t it? Since we are able to see all the details of the images and the videos easily, it certainly looks good. Another advantage of running the videos and playing games in full screen is that we are able to focus only on the important stuffs and the other less important things like the ads are hidden in the background.

While most of the times the players or the application we run provide us the option of maximizing the videos and games, sometimes they don’t (because of the scalability issues). In those cases, when you don’t have any option to maximize the multimedia and fill up your screen, this extension called as FullScreen Anything will come handy. Continue reading “Fill up your Browser for Images, Videos and Games with FullScreen Anything”

Loop Complete or Specific part of YouTube Videos with Looper for YouTube

There are times when we all have played youtube videos on repeat for many times, whether those are song videos or something really funny. I mostly play the songs when I doing something on Youtube and like to put it on repeat but if you are not using any extension then you know we have to do this thing manually since Youtube doesn’t provide any button to auto repeat the videos.

Well there are many ways to do that, couple of which we have mentioned in the past too. But the reason why I am mentioning about one more way today is that not all extensions provide a way to repeat only a specific part of a video. Say if you just like to replay or loop only certain interval of a youtube video, there is no way to do so. Continue reading “Loop Complete or Specific part of YouTube Videos with Looper for YouTube”

Now, obviously, you don’t have any idea of how many people are these many.
