I decided to catalog nice tutorials and tools that I found out. This post is the first of the season. I’m not sure if I’ll do it every month, but I’ll try to keep it constant.

How to Auto Refresh Chrome Tabs Without an Extension

It’s a tutorial from Technipages that suggest creative ways to refresh a Chrome tab without a Chrome Extension. It’s quite useful and even have a bookmarklet sollution.

Injecting custom JS in any website

This one isn’t a tutorial, but a tool. It’s a extension for Google Chrome called Custom JavaScript for Websites 2 it has over 40,000 active users and it syncs your customs JS on every Chrome session that you are running.

It’s quite useful to create “micro extensions” for websites that you work everyday. I have to work with an online system at work on a web browser. I’m using the CJS Extension to inject JS to the page and highlight tasks that have been designated to my username. I’m also using it to alert me when the inbox is updated.

The simple suspender

Google blocked The Great Suspender (this link isn’t working anymore) extension from Chrome, with existing users now receiving a message that it has “been disabled because it contains malware.

The Great Suspender was a quite useful extension for keeping my browser running smoothly given the number of opened tabs that I always left open, without actually forcing you to close old tabs.

I decided to create a solution for myself using PHP and Javascript. I named it “the simple suspender”. You can check its source code at
