Web browsers are applications used primarily to display documents, files and media from the Internet, identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that can be a page, image, video or other file. Some browsers require the use of add-ons or extensions to safely render the information they receive; others have systems built into them to perform the same functions.

When scrolling down the document in an iframe, and reach bottom, if keep spinning down the mouse wheel, the parent document starts scrolling. Browsers call it a "dispatch" of wheel event to parent. So it's not bubbling, as it's not within the same document. A new wheel event is created on parent.

Can this "dispatch" be prevented? How? (I use plain JavaScript.)
Is there any sample script available?

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

Hi, I've had a little problem for a couple of years now, and haven't been able to sort it out. On some web pages, in every browser
I've tried, certain parts of the page don't display. For example, on the following page, there is a table below where it says "Estimated time: 20 mins".  https://www.moneysmart.gov.au/tools-and-resources/calculators-and-apps/budget-planner

This table does not show on my computer. Is there some way to find out what I need to have turned on to make this table show? Over time I have gone from Windows 7 to Windows 10, used multiple antivirus programs, and several browsers, and this problem still persists. Either there is a global switch, or I have a corrupted file, but I can't find it.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm looking for a CDN that's free or affordable for videos like YouTube. However, I don't want to use YouTube for other reasons. I would like to upload videos, and once they're uploaded have them playable onto a website. Any recommendations?

I'm using a Chrome browser and I noticed something weird on one of our sub-domains. if I clear or change local storage, when I refresh the page, the old settings are restored. I have tried to clear at the command line, via Application > Storage > localStorage and Application > storage (hit clear). Regardless I have no idea how to prevent this or get around this issue. Is this an application setting?

Hi Experts

Could you point what's necessary to make Firefox Network debbuger to retain the code is causing the error?

Accordingly to:

I'm using PHP/ Codeigniter - the controller's module f.e. that causes an error doesn't appear when it used to.

Thanks in advance!

I created a webpage that uses JQWidget to produce 3 graphs. The page displays fine initially but as the graphs refresh to display new data the Google Chrome crashing due to it running out of memory to view the page. (bug doesn't occur in Firefox or Chrome)

Aw, Snap! Google Chrome ran out of memory while trying to display this webpage.

I realize the graphs might use a lot of resources but I only have this issue in Chrome even after I clear the cache.

I am using Modernizr to detect if autoplay is available in the browser. Then, I am displaying either a video or a Javascript-based slide show depending on the result. Here is my code:

videoAutoPlayCheck=setInterval(videoCheckAutoPlay, 1000);
videoCheckAutoPlay();

function videoCheckAutoPlay(){
	Modernizr.on('videoautoplay', function(result){
		if (Modernizr.videoautoplay){
			//PLAY VIDEO
			window.clearInterval(videoAutoPlayCheck);
		} else {
			//PLAY SLIDE SHOW
			window.clearInterval(videoAutoPlayCheck);
		}
	});
}

Open in new window


I am getting unpredictable results in Chrome, however this seems to be working in all other browsers. Researching the issue on Google, there are posts from a couple years ago describing what I am seeing. However, I would have thought that enough time has passed that Modernizr would have fixed that issue.

To describe what is happening, sometimes Chrome loads the video, sometimes the slide show. There doesn't seem to be any way to predict... in fact, sometimes reloading the page brings the opposite result as the previous page load.

Is there anything wrong with my code, or is this still a known issue with Modernizr? Or should I be looking for some other solution?

Thank you.

We have group policy in place to block ALL websites
Then we use Whitelist to allow certain websites such as google.com

Im having issues using the URL White list to allow our internal network so we can access printers and other devices.
I need to allow all IPs on the following networks
192.168.1.0/24
192.168.2.0/24
192.168.3.0/24

I have tried adding the following to the white-list but i still get blocked access
192.168.*
192.168
192.168.*
192.168.=&

What is the correct syntax for allowing all those IPs?

Uninstalled and reinstalled IE11
Updated, Java, Flash, Silverlight
Reinstalled Abode Reader DC
Ran sfc /scannow, no violations found
I ran autoruns for Windows and disabled some missing files et cet
I tried some different IE settings but no change

For the past month I have been chasing an annoying problem. Something is crashing the mouse driver on my Win2k8 server, causing the mouse (but not the keyboard) to freeze. I have been remedying this by restarting in Safe Mode and deleting the USB Hubs in Device manager. The OS then reinstalls them and all is well until the next time. Recently, I have begun to suspect Google Chrome as the cause. I notice that I'm usually working in Chrome when the freeze occurs. This last time I noted that I had 6 tabs open and TaskManager shows 20 instances of Chrome open using a total of 1.9 GB of memory. With 8gb of memory installed, is this a problem? It didn't used to be. Do I have a memory leak and if so, what can I do about it? (I already uninstalled and re-installed Chrome)

Hi all
I have an access database that contains addresses. I need to be able to click on a button that will open the chrome browser, navigate to https://earth.google.com/web/ and, getting the data from the fields in the database, navigate to that address.  Everyone is allowed to use either IE, Chrome, or Firefox as their browser but Google Earth will only work in Chrome so I need it to open Chrome specifically.

Thank you

Long ago, I was a pretty big advocate for Firefox. I even had the t-shirt to prove it! After Chrome came out however, it eventually won me over. It's been so long I can barely even remember the key reasons, but I'm pretty sure it had to do with streamlined UI and better performance.

Lately though, Chrome's performance is starting to annoy me and this recent update to Firefox is pretty intriguing... Any of you still prefer Firefox? Have any feedback on the new update?

I'm actually pretty pleased with Edge...the only thing I don't like about it is how it handles Favorites on the Favorites Bar.  It opens a side bar instead of expanding the folders in place.  They keep fixing stuff like that, though.... so I'll probably stick with it.

I am currently using the 64 bit version of the current Firefox which is a huge improvement over the 32 bit default install you get from the website. The 32 bit used to crash on me once or twice every couple of days, I usually keep my browser open for a few days without restarts. Its worth the look into to try it out for yourself.

Ever visit a website where you spotted a really cool looking Font, yet couldn't figure out which font family it belonged to, or how to get a copy of it for your own use? This article explains the process of doing exactly that, as well as showing how to install downloaded fonts.

That is a really useful article, Andrew. Thanks for sharing.

A question though, back in the "old days" by my standards, you weren't supposed to share fonts because many of them were sold separately and were considered to be under the software license of the product they worked with. I would assume if you can get the font from Google that it is safe, but are there still instances of those IP fonts today that aren't supposed to be shared?

Hi Brian,

An excellent observation. With regards to safety of available fonts, I can only assume that all submissions are checked by Google in this respect before a listing is accepted, so while never beyond the realms of possibility, am confident that a malicious font download is unlikely.

I'm sure there are many fonts to be found on the web which are not supposed to be shared as you've rightly pointed out, however with every font downloaded from the Google Fonts site, there is also a license agreement included within the downloaded Zip file that specifies which usage license the font has been released under.

In the case of the illustrated "Lato" font used in my example, that particular font has been released under the Sil Open Font License (OFL) and comes with the following conditions when downloaded.
PERMISSION & CONDITIONS
Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of the Font Software, to use, study, copy, merge, embed, modify, redistribute, and sell modified and unmodified copies of the Font Software, subject to the following conditions,
The list of exclusions are as one would expect for most open source material, such as preventing the sale of the font by itself etc, however for personal or commercial use within other products, there's no problem.  This could differ of course with each font that's made available so it always pays to check what rights are provided. Font families not available on Google Fonts and found on other font distribution sites would of course contain their own rules and restrictions, which should always be respected.

I hope that answers your questions and thank you for your feedback and up-vote. I very much appreciate it. Regards, Andrew

This text below was found when I searched www.google.se and had the setting "Pages written in Swedish":

Landing slot, takeoff slot eller airport slot (egentlig en «luke») er en rettighet flyplasseier selger til et flyselskap som gir dette en mulighet til å tilpasse sine

(https://www.google.se/search?q=%22landing+slot%22&lr=lang_sv&newwindow=1&hl=sv&as_qdr=all&tbs=lr:lang_1sv&ei=B1Y9WZO7KYiW8QXZ3pOwAw&start=0&sa=N&biw=1366&bih=638)

But when I opened that website,

https://digitaltmuseum.se/011044500662/slot-over-slot-sig-bygger-malning

then the above text is not there, I can't find it anymore. Why, and is there any way I can find the text and the rest of it on this website?

I use Google Chrome.
