MLB free agency news: Veteran Rockies slugger Mark Reynolds designated for assignment

first_imgColorado recalled right-hander Jeff Hoffman from Triple-A Albuquerque and optioned Antonio Senzatela, as well. The Rockies also selected the contract of left-hander Sam Howard to try and get their pitching back on track.As for Reynolds, he said he isn’t upset about not reaching 300 homers this season, but isn’t pleased with how his hitting played out this year.“It would have been a cool milestone to get to, and I had plenty of opportunities to do it. I just couldn’t quite get consistent with my swing. It’s not disappointing … 298, 300. It is just a number, but it’s also a milestone,” Reynolds said. Mark Reynolds’ time in the majors could be over.The veteran first baseman was designated for assignment Sunday by the Rockies, and while Reynolds knew the move was a possibility, the reality of the situation still stings.

However, he’s hit just .170 with four home runs and 20 RBIs this season.

But as someone once said, ‘If you don’t like it, play better.’ I couldn’t play better.”Reynolds is two home runs shy of hitting the 300 career mark, which only 148 other players have done. However, the team has lost 13 of its last 15 games and manager Bud Black said a shakeup was needed.“We are going to miss Mark. He was a good Rockie for a couple of different years. But you guys all know that change in this game is inevitable, and we had to make a move for the present,” Black said.

Vivaldi shows Chrome how to handle extension icons

first_imgVivaldi shows Chrome how to handle extension icons by Martin Brinkmann on January 04, 2017 in Internet – Last Update: June 27, 2017 – 9 commentsOne of Google Chrome’s big usability issues, at least if you ask me, is that you cannot hide extension icons anymore completely in the browser.Extension icons are either shown directly in the browser’s main — and only — toolbar, or in the menu. There is no option to hide an icon completely, even if it does nothing at all.If you install too many extensions in Chrome, then they will either take up a lot of space in the toolbar — and reduce the space for the address bar in the process — or in the menu.Lets take a look at how the Vivaldi browser — which is based on pretty much the same source as Chrome — is handling things.Vivaldi Extension icon visibility optionsVivaldi offers two core options when it comes to the visibility of extension icons in the browser. The first option that you have is to hide any extension icon in the browser’s toolbar.Vivaldi places extension icons in the main toolbar just like Google Chrome does. You can right-click on any extension icon however in the browser to hide the icon by selecting “hide button” from the context menu that opens up.Selecting the option hides the icon from the browser UI. The icon won’t be moved to the Vivaldi menu or another location, but is completely hidden in the interface.You can restore the visibility of any icon by loading vivaldi://extensions and clicking on the “show button” button that is displayed next to the extension.The Vivaldi team added a new option to the most recent Vivaldi 1.7 build. If things go well, it will be part of the next stable Vivaldi 1.7 release.It allows you to add a visibility toggle for all extension icons to the browser UI. This feature is not enabled by default, and needs to be activated before it becomes available.Load vivaldi://settings/addressbar/ in the browser’s address bar to get started. Find the Extensions group on the page, and check “show extensions visibility toggle” on the page to enable the new feature.It adds a button with three dots to the rightmost location of the Vivaldi toolbar. A click on it hides all extension icons, another exposes them again in the interface. Handy if you don’t require the icons to be visible at all times, but only in certain situations.Other browsers?The Opera browser, also based on the pretty much the same code, offers better options as well. You need to load opera://extensions in the browser’s address bar to list all installed extensions. There you find the “hide from toolbar” option which hides the extension icon from Opera’s toolbar.Firefox, and browser’s based on Firefox code, is the most flexible of the browsers. It allows you to drag and drop extension icons for one, and gives you full control over each icon’s position and visibility in the browser.Microsoft Edge finally handles things exactly like Google Chrome. It displays icons either in the address bar, or in the main menu.Closing WordsVivaldi users have two options when it comes to extension icon visibility in the browser’s UI. They can hide individual extension icons, useful if they never use them,  or enable the toggle all function to hide all visible extension icons when they are not needed.SummaryArticle NameVivaldi shows Chrome how to handle extension iconsDescriptionThe Vivaldi web browser offers superior extension icon visibility handling when the functionality is compared to Google Chrome.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
