So, there I was, watching Firefox 3 thrash my CPU and IO, when I decided that I needed a replacement. Something elegant, fast, preferably threaded… oh! Google Chrome! So, I finally found a link to download the unstable version of the browser based on the latest revisions, of which I got version 220.127.116.11-r27053.
Now, I’ve used Chrome in Linux before, and a few things about Firefox kept me hooked. Today, though, I was on a mission to change all that. I wanted basically all the functionality I got from Firefox in my Chrome experience as well. This article should help others do the same.
As you can see, my content security policy is sent as an HTTP header on all HTTP responses from my site. I basically stole an example from this page. I’ve attached it in the .htaccess file in my site’s root, before everything else in there, like so:
I highly recommend everyone with commenting activated on their blog enable this, since XSS is a serious pain. This seems to work very well on Site5, where mod_headers was simply enabled out of the box.
So, today I was invited to Google Group chat for the first time. This would be really cool on a terminal that’s not equipped with an IM client, since it’s all done through the web with flash and magic. But, since I don’t like having 2 IM clients running at the same time (Pidgin and the Flash one from Google), I decided I needed to rip out the Jabber Group Chat Room name from the invite page. I got some tips from this site, and wrote a Greasemonkey script to do so.
All you have to do is copy the room name into the Join Chat window, and put in groupchat.google.com as the server. I hope you find it useful. If anyone knows how to make this a link that GNOME will throw at Pidgin, let me know. That would be awesome.
