Interesting Links: 8.25.07

  • Vista Battery Saver: This tiny program will save up to 70% of your battery by disabling those nice, but greedy Vista features. Running in task bar …it will do all work for you, by enabling and disabling customizable features when power source changed or battery power fall under certain percent.
  • TubeStop for Firefox: TubeStop is an extension for Mozilla-based Web browsers that disables the autoplay on YouTube videos. This means that you can open multiple YouTube videos in tabs in the background without them auto-playing.

Yeah it’s been a slow week for links. Let me just point out that Vista Battery Saver is INCREDIBLY useful for anyone using Vista on their laptop. I usually get just around 2 hours of battery life on my laptop, but check out the image below that shows my battery life after installing this application. This wonderful app nearly doubled my battery life…no joke. TubeStop also disables the crappy advertisements that YouTube has now begun adding to it’s videos.
