Use Safari, Chrome, Command, And Number Keys To Navigate The Web Faster [OS X Tips]

By

Safari Command

Let’s talk about getting around the web quickly. Most likely, you’re using Safari or Chrome on the Mac to surf the information superhighway, and these modern browsers use tabs to open more than one window onto the world wide web at the same time, right?

You probably also have a series of oft-accessed bookmarks that you keep in the toolbar just above the web page and just below the address or URL bar.

Popping back and forth between tabs, or opening up new bookmarks is fairly easy with the mouse, for sure, but here’s a faster way that lets you keep your hands on the keyboard.

Everpix – in case my constant droning on and on about it wasn’t clear enough – is my favorite cloud photo service by far (I’m currently auditioning Picturelife as a possible alternative, but so far it’s not close). Now the web app has been updated to make it even easier to use. So easy and fast, in fact, that you could use it to replace iPhoto on your Mac.

You know the drill: you get some crazy attachment in the mail, and you need to convert it to a format you can use. And – of course – you’re on your iPhone or iPad.

Maybe it’a a FLAC file you want in AAC, or a Microsoft DOC file that you’d prefer to see as a PDF. On the Mac you can convert these with little problem, but on iOS? Well, it’s now actually even easier than it was on the desktop. If you use CloudConvert anyway.

iPhone Most Social

ShareThis, the popular content sharing button on many websites, reported a study in which user patterns suggest that the iPhone is the “Most Social Device,” accounting for three times as much sharing as from the desktop, and up to one and a half times as much sharing as any other mobile platform.

In addition, the study found that Facebook is the social network shared to the most, with 60 percent of the mobile sharing going to the big blue website. Twitter and Pinterest, interestingly, are the next two most shared to networks.
