URL Hunter: A Game Played Inside the Address Bar

For Google, the address bar in a browser may be a vestige leftover from legacy user-interface design, but for most of the rest, the URL bar means a lot. Ask @probablycorey of San Francisco. ProbablyCorey has designed a game called URL Hunter! that can be played entirely inside the browser’s address bar. That’s right.

Head over to the game page and use the Left and Right arrow keys of your keyboard to move the “O” and use the spacebar to gobble up the “a”s. The game runs for just 30 seconds during which you have to hunt as many “a”s as you can. The game is so simple yet so addicting that you will typically end up playing multiple times trying to better your own score.


But beware, the game will completely screw up your browser’s history and the Back button.


So if browser history is important to you, just fire up another browser – one that is not your primary browser – and use that instead. On the plus side, deleting browser history has never been so fun.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
