Google didn’t announce a new version of Android at Google I/O, its annual developer conference last week, leaving our devices feeling sad and unloved. Android 4.3 may still be on the way soon, but for now, here’s what we wish Google had announced — and how you can get many of these features right now.
BarTab is a popular add-on for Firefox, preventing tabs from a previous session from loading until you activate them. Anyone who keeps 20+ tabs open knows the primordial sadness of watching one’s browser struggle with the load of restoring such a large number of tabs simultaneously.

Most men’s suit jackets have three buttons down the front. Leave them all unbuttoned and you look informal. Button them all and you look like a schoolboy in his first suit or a school uniform. So which should you button and which stay open? This rule is easy to remember: “Sometimes, Always, Never” from top to bottom.
