Finale of the James Bond tips: Scroll through multi page article

There are few things I find more irritating when Web browsing than a site that forces me to click a series of "Next" buttons to view the contents of an article — especially so when the material is so brief that it could easily fit on one page. I'm talking about articles where every couple of paragraphs are on a new page, so that you have to continually click to keep reading, waiting for the page to reload each time. Or "top ten" lists, where each item on the list is on a separate page. Most often, sites do this so as to generate more ad income (as income can depend on the number of times an ad appears). Maybe I'm over-reacting here, but I find this so annoying that I often refuse to play the game and leave the site.
Not anymore. I now use PageZipper. This add-on has been around for almost a year, but I just learned of it a couple of months ago. So I'm assuming you may yet not be aware of it. If so, you have to check it out. With this great utility, you simply use the scroll bars to scroll through the multiple "next" pages. Each time you reach the end of one page, the next page automatically appears. No clicking buttons is required. I have used this with literally dozens of sites now, and it has worked perfectly in almost every instance.

Here we go again on another James Bond tips: Font Size and Text

Newbies often don't know these simple tactics exist and veterans often forget, but there are times when a couple of keystrokes can turn a potentially frustrating browsing situation into one of enjoyment
Some sites use large readable fonts while others use fonts that are so small one must use a magnifying glass to view it. Instead of adjusting the computer's screen resolution, a few simple keystrokes can increase or reduce the size of the web page fonts. Depressing the keys "Ctrl" and "+" simultaneously increases the web page's font size. Conversely, depressing "Ctrl" and "-" reduces the font size.
Keep in mind however this trick only works on text size. The size of the images remains the same.

On busy websites, it's sometimes difficult to find certain information. It's not that the information is not on the web page; it's just that some web pages either have lots of text or are visually busy thus making it difficult to locate specific information. For example, some education and business websites are guilty of offering so much information about the establishment that it's difficult to locate the mailing address.
A quick way to find the sought after text is to depress the "Ctrl" and "F" keys simultaneously to evoke the "Find" function. Once the Find window is open, insert the keywords or text in the search box and click "Next." The web browser will highlight the search words.To find out more about this, take a peep at this site:

The trilogy of the James Bond tips: Managing your bookmarks in style.

You can improve your online efficiency by cataloging and moving your bookmarks (shortcuts to your favorite Web sites) into descriptive folders. To create a bookmark folder in Communicator, click the Bookmarks icon on the Location toolbar and select Edit Bookmarks from the resulting pop-up menu. In the Bookmarks dialog box, open the File menu and select the New Folder command. Next, name the folder and provide a brief description in the Bookmark Properties dialog box.

In IE, create bookmark folders by opening the Favorites menu and clicking the Organize Favorites command. In the resulting dialog box, click the Create Folder button, name the folder, and click Close.

Again on another James Bond tips: Attention Alert, the time is out!

 Many ISPs (Internet service providers) have devised monitoring systems that automatically disconnect dial-up connections that have been inactive for a certain period of time, usually 20 minutes. The good news is that such policies prevent absentee users from hogging all the dial-up connections. The bad news is that these policies can prove disruptive to active Internet users who fail to access a new Web page or send an e-mail message at least every 20 minutes.

To avoid these disruptions, you can set your e-mail application to check for messages every 10 or 15 minutes. In Communicator, open the Preferences dialog box, double-click the Mail & Newsgroups category, and highlight the Mail Servers subcategory. Make sure your mail connection is highlighted in the Incoming Mail Servers field, and then click the Edit button. In the next dialog box, click the checkbox next to Check For Mail Every __ Minutes and set it to check for new mail every 10 or 15 minutes.

If you use one of Microsoft's messaging applications, you can adjust this setting by accessing the application's Options dialog box (usually in the Tools menu) and searching for the Check For New Messages Every __ Minutes option. The exact location of this setting varies from one application to the next. In Microsoft Outlook, you'll find it under the Mail Delivery tab of the Options dialog box. In Microsoft Internet Mail, however, you'll find the setting under the Read tab of its Options dialog box.

The James Bond tips number two: Drain the cache pal!

 You may not realize it, but your browser surreptitiously gathers each Web page you visit into a cache (a temporary storage area for frequently accessed data) on the hard drive. When you revisit a page that your browser recently added to the cache, the browser displays the cached page rather than download a new copy of the page from its Web server. This decreases your online downtime, allowing you to be more efficient and effective when you use the Web.

After a particularly busy online session, the cache can get quite full and clog up much-needed space on the hard drive. The data in the cache can also become outdated, particularly when you're accessing time-sensitive information such as news headlines or stock quotes. Fortunately, you can improve your Web experiences and make the most of the Web cache by flushing it out regularly.

To empty the cache in Netscape Communicator, click the Preferences command from the Edit menu, open the Advanced category, and highlight the Cache subcategory. Click the Clear Memory Cache and Clear Disk Cache buttons. Users of Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) can empty the cache by opening the Tools menu and selecting the Internet Options command. In the resulting dialog box, select the General page tab and click the Delete Files button.
