Fifita to ‘memory bank’ Maroons baiting

first_imgPhoto: NRL Photos.Andrew Fifita won’t forget the sledging he copped from Queensland players Fifita, whose Game Two was noticeably quieter than his Game One pyrotechnics, also said he has no issue with the Maroons putting extra effort into keeping him quiet.Their tactic of swamping him opened up chances for his fellow forwards and earned the Blues a couple of penalties – the only problem was how his team failed to manage the game in the second half, he said.”Yeah I did feel it (them putting extra attention on me) to be honest,” Fifita said after the game.”They did their research. But in saying that they gave away a penalty on me on their line, after that set we ended up going up and scoring.”There were passages early in the game where extra Maroons forwards followed him which opened up extra chances for the likes of Aaron Woods and Josh Jackson to start the game strongly, according to Fifita.”It’s not a one-man team here, not a two-man team. There’s 16 other blokes beside myself here. I thought our bench did a good job, we started the game well. We just let it slip,” he added.Fifita came in for extra attention from Maroons lock Josh McGuire, who dived at Fifita’s legs in a tackle late in the contest and gave the Sharks big man a few verbals on fulltime as well.”I laughed at it,” Fifita smiled of the special treatment.”I knew they were going to come at me. In any team, if you’re one of the main players they are going to try and take you out of the game. In saying that, he can dive at the leg all he wants. They’re only little but they aren’t breaking anything.”The extra spite would only give the Blues more motivation to go up to Suncorp and claim the series on Queensland’s territory, according to Fifita.”There would be nothing better than us going up there and taking out the series on Queensland soil… I’m a bit bitter about it. They can carry on all they want at the end of the game there. It’s one of those things, we will memory-bank it and go into Game Three ready,” he said.”It was a big wake up call for us. Hopefully we go up there for Game Three and prepare well and get the job done in their backyard.” last_img read more

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
