Move data in and out Google

It's important that you can access your Google data when you want it, where you want it - whether is it to import it into another service or just create your own copy for your archives. People usually don't look to see if they can get their data out of a product until they decide that they want to leave. For this reason, we always encourage you to ask these three questions before starting to use a product that will store your data: Can I get my data out in an open, interoperable, portable format? How much is it going to cost to get my data out?

The ideal answers to these questions are: Wikipedia. Wikispaces - about. Box, Larger than dropbox. Sync, analog of dropbox. Conversations in the cloud. Prezi - Presentation Editor. SlideBoom - professional powerpoint. VUVOX - slideshows, photo, video and music sharing, Myspace codes. Ahead - presentations editor. Share powerpoint presentations. SlideRocket. Free online screen recorder for instant screen capture video sharing. Firefox shortcuts.

When an Emacs text editing shortcut conflicts with the default shortcuts (as occurs with Ctrl+K), the Emacs shortcut will take precedence if focus is inside a text box (which would include the location bar and search bar). In such cases you should use the alternate keyboard shortcut if one is listed below. Some of these shortcuts require the currently selected tab to be "in focus. " Currently, the only way to do this is to select an adjacent object and "tab into" the current tab, for instance, by hitting Alt + Dcommand + L to select the address bar, and then Shift + Tab twice.

Cookies and privacy

Those warm, gooey little treats are so delicious . . . wait, not those kinds of cookies. Let’s talk about Internet cookies. Websites save information about you in cookies (files) on your computer. The next time you visit that site, the code will read that file to “remember” you. We rely on cookies all the time. There are also cookies that remember more detailed information about you.

Some cookies track you until you close your browser. You could delete all of your cookies, but that may mean a more difficult Web-surfing experience. So now that you understand a bit more about cookies and what they do, let’s talk about your options. There’s a growing awareness of a feature called Do Not Track, which is built into Firefox.

You could turn on Private Browsing, which allows you to browse the Internet without saving any information about which sites and pages you’ve visited. There’s also a setting in Firefox that allows you to Clear Recent History.
