Create your own GMail themes.

First we had GMail themes. Now Google allows you to make Gmail as ugly or pretty as you want – by choosing your own colors.

Go to Gmail -> Settings -> Themes, and click “Choose your own colors”. This opens a window where you can configure a template with instant preview. Hit Save & Close, and Gmail will appear in your custom colors.

How to download Videos from IMEEM

IMEEM has a collection of great videos. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to download them because IMEEM has incorporated an Anti-Leech technology which makes conventional downloads difficult. But there are ways to download videos using the following hack.

Step 1 : Download VideoCacheView –  If the video file is stored in your browser's cache, this utility can help you to extract the video file from the cache and save it for watching it in the future.  It automatically scans the entire cache of Internet Explorer and Mozilla-based Web browsers (Including Firefox) and finds all video files that are currently stored in it. It allows you to easily copy the cached video files into another folder for playing/watching them in the future. If you have a movie player that is configured to play flv files, it also allows you to play the video directly from your browser's cache.

Even with all the Anti-Leech technology in place, IMEEM can not stop the browser from caching the videos and thats where our little hack will come into picture.

Step 2 : Play the Videos (or several videos in Tabs) and let them complete (this is important) and don’t close the browser (this is also very important because browser cache might get cleared on closing)

Step 3 : Open VideoCacheView. It will show all the videos in the browser cache. (Check Screenshot)


Step 4 : Select the files you want to save and click on SAVE icon to save the FLV file.

Clean your firefox history.

I will not go into details on why you would want to remove selected entries from your firefox history. But we are geeks, we have all sorts of dark secrets. So how would you delete selected entries from Firefox history ?

Press Ctrl+H to access your web history in the Firefox sidebar, type some characters in the search box to find the website(s) that you want to remove, right click and select the "Forget About This Site" option. images

This option lets you delete either entire domains (like or even sub-domains (like from your browser history. If you like to selectively delete only a couple of web pages from the history (and not the entire website), just right click the web page title in the History box and select Delete This Page or hit the Del key on your keyboard.

Now, you want to clear the tracks for last few hours or few days. How would you do that ? (we are still not going into the reason of doing this)

Press Ctrl+Shift+Del in Firefox to open the "Clear Recent History" dialog and select "the last two hours" or "my history for today" option. This will delete only your recent Internet history while leaving the old data untouched . (See the screenshot below)
