A change this week for my smaller laptop, from Linux Mint to Elementary OS and I couldn’t be happier.Continue reading Elementary OS Linux on iOTA Flo 11.6″ laptop
Generally, I am a bit of a tab minimalist when it comes to my browsing habits—I don’t often have more than about five or six tabs open at a time.
At work, however, I am working with two teams (Kronos and Odin) and I was recently looking for a method to neatly group tabs relating to the two teams plus my general work stuff (email, HR system, Jira, Trello, etc.) and personal productivity applications (calendar, email, contacts, task list, etc.)
As I switch between teams quite regularly, I was finding myself taking a little too long to search my various tabs for the right one. Enter Google Chrome’s built-in tab groups. Now everything is much easier to find.Continue reading Organising tabs by groups in Google Chrome
This afternoon I finally got round to figuring out why my workaround for changing the Divi projects custom post type to anything you want had broken in Divi 2.5.
In the end it was deceptively simple. I’d set the priority values for the add_action($hook, $function_to_add, $priority) and remove_action($hook, $function_to_add, $priority) functions too low.
WordPress uses the priority value to determine in which order particular actions are run. The default value is 10. The higher the value, the later it will be executed.
With the Chrome Logger extension installed and enabled on the tab I wanted to write to, all I had to do was include the library and log some data. Like this:
<?php include 'ChromePhp.php'; ChromePhp::log('Hello console!'); ChromePhp::log($_SERVER); ChromePhp::warn('something went wrong!'); ?>
Very useful. And as well as a library for PHP there are also libraries for

I just spotted this strange anomaly on my PC at work. Both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 10 are claiming to be the default web browser.
A quick visit to the “Default Programs” applet in the Control Panel and balance has now been restored.
But as you can see from the screenshot above, the default view is rather dull: white background, uninspiring syntax highlighting. It’s a shame that you can’t match the Chrome developer tools code panel with my text editor of choice.
Well, it turns out you can! Chrome provides a “User StyleSheets” directory into what you can drop a Custom.css file.
- C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets\
- ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/User StyleSheets/
- ~/.config/chromium/Default/User StyleSheets/
A number of people have also done the hard work for us and made available ready-to-use CSS files for various themes. These are my two favourite dark themes:
Having saved the code to your Custom.css file and saved it, Chrome updates immediately:
