Hacking Google : Tips & Tricks

  • Free Downloads of any type
    • Ever needed an old Android app but couldn't find the APK for what you were looking for? Or wanted an MP3 but couldn't find the right version? Google has a few search tools that, when used together, can unlock a plethora of downloads: inurl, intitle, and filetype. For example, to find free Android APKs, you'd search for -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" apk to see site indexes of stored APK files
      • -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" apk
      • intitle:"index of" downloads
      • filetype:pdf Javascript
  • Search Product, Recipes, and More with Reverse Image Search
    • With Google, you can just drop a picture into Google Images and it'll search for similar pictures. 
  • Get google cache copy directly
    • We all know Google Cache can be a great tool, but there's no need to search for the page and then hunt for that "Cached" link: just type cache: before that site's URL

Hack new Yahoo Mail!

Yahoo Mail is back with a Bang! 

By now you must have heard that Yahoo have launched much cooler Mail

However, to make it much usable, I'm trying with few Hacks.

* Increase the Message Read Pane Area (stretch)
In Mailbox vertical split, Inbox area is hardly using 65% of my screen width, and right most ~20% of the area is unused (Ads, Banners!). Moreover, my content viewable area is quite small.
  1. Check if you have Greasemonkey or Tempermonkey installed in your browser.
  2. Install the following script there:
    1. // ==UserScript==
      // @name       Ymail stretch
      // @namespace  http://vishnu-agarwal.blogspot.com/
      // @version    0.1
      // @include    https://in-mg0.mail.yahoo.com/neo*
      // @description  stretches the new YMail Inbox area
      // @match      https://in-mg0.mail.yahoo.com/neo/*
      // @copyright  2012+, You
      // ==/UserScript==
      if(ele = document.getElementById('shellcontent')) ele.style.width='1300px';


Will update the post with more tweaks!
