FAQ

What makes one web browser faster than another?
I will try exing this in a way both tech technically inclined people can understand. I am also using the current Quora page as an example. Assuming all other factors (platform band processing power disk speeds memory and the page being viewed) to be equal(they should be for fairparison) the factors that determine the browsers speed in terms of what is perceived by the user are 1. The Layout engine engine nEach browser has a layout engine under the hood. For example the different browser engines used in browsers aren WebKit Chrome and Safari Gecko Firefox Trident IE Presto Operan The layout engine is what decides when what part and how HTML tags s 436 1152 master_ s zoomable s SVG files and visual elements are handled. For example IE has limited SVG support while Opera has the best support for interactive SVGs. The apparent differences in HTML5 support are also handled by this part of the browser. That is the reason this same HTML above shows up differently in older browsers like IE8. All the engines listed above are written in C++.n n 2. The JavaScript engine nEvery browser has a JavaScript engine which handles how the user interacts with the visual elements. For example the different JavaScript engines used by browsers are n V8 Chrome SpiderMonkey Firefox NitroSafari Carakan Opera Chakra IE9n The Java script engine processes how a user interacts with the page (everything happening in the background process). It executes all the JavaScript that tags along in the page.n A JavaScript engine affects speeds because n When the user interacts with the page (e.g. presses a button s some in the search bar etc.) the JavaScript engine processes the request and fills the search information back into the box. All AJAX calls jQuery DOM manipulation etc done in programs are also handled by this part of the browser.n The way the JavaScript is handled by each of these engines is different. Due to the javascriptpiler and handling of JSON data. Hence the difference in speed. For example Apple reserves the Nitro javascript engine for Safari alone and other developers are forced to use a different slower engine. This is the reason why Safari will always be the fastest browser in iOS. Some engines like V8 have some critical parts written in assembly and non critical parts in C++. All the other engines are written in C++n n 3. Cachingpression in the cloud nIn scenarios where band is limited the two factors listed above be less important. This is a game changer that makes the other two factors listed above kind of irrelevant (the code to be fetched is slower so they are in wait for the processing to start) up to a certain level. This technology was introduced by Opera - Opera Turbo.n Caching affects speeds because n The page is fetched by a serverpressed in terms of quality and so on to save data transfer. n 4. Local Caching nBrowsers also cache some of the content like scripts frequently accessed pages etc for later use. This leads to faster load times as the content is fetched from the disk instead of over an internet medium. This is the reason go is faster than reload by Kevin Ernest Long user 1427783 5. Plugin management nA typical user opens pages containing RIA (rich internet applications such as Flash Silverlight Java FX Quicktime etc) which handle video audio games etc in the browser. The way that these plugins are handled by the browser window and how it interacts with it are different. Chrome has built in Flash PDF support. The other browsers handle this differently. For example I am currently using Firefox. The process associated with firefox are Plugin management affects speeds because n Not to a large extent but the sluggishness that results when too many of these applications are opened is because of poor plugin management.n n 6. Memory management nEach tab is also to be given equal priority script execution and everything else mentioned above. The memory address of these has to be kept separate so that security breaches do not occur and one tab crashing does not case the browser to crash.n Firefox has 4+ tabs yet runs as a single process with as many threads. IE and Chrome open a separate process for each new tab. This affects the speed of tabs stability and the overall experience for the user.
Where can I learn how to create a download link from the path saved in the database in PHP?
If the file is somewhere accessible as others have said you can ordinarily just provide a regular to it. If you wish to reliably avoid it opening within the browser (the HTML5 attribute is a nice improvement but it's not supported across all major browsers) you should write a handler routine to offer it to the user. You'll to say ?file= and then write an appropriate script in . That script should specify that the file is for download by setting the appropriate HTTP header header(Content-Disposition attachment; filename=$filename); Then you can simply use readfile to send it to the user readfile($filename);nexit; It is VERY important that you not simply allow this script to download any given file; otherwise you are giving any user the ability to download any random file they like from your system. You must either carefully sanitize the filename (don't just pass a $_GET variable through without ensuring that it can only access the directory you mean) or else to be even safer do something like only allowing the script to access a particular list of files stored in a database table. In that case you'll to your file as ?fileid=26 or something like that and then look up the actual filename for file 26 from a table in your SQL database.
Is it possible to force Chrome not to download but view PDF in browser?
Type chromeplugins in the address bar and scroll down to the option to enable Chrome PDF Viewer. Once you have enable the PDF viewer you will see the PDF in the browser. Maybe there are some sites where they force you to download. There is no much to do about that. That can be done for security reasons.
What are some amazing facts about Google Chrome?
Google are one of those cool techpanies 3 at least to me anyways. On top of offering one of the most widely used and most relied upon tools in the entire world they are also apany that not afraid to try out the more futurist ideas 3 such as self-driving cars Google Glass and wave powered floating server farms 3 to the sometimes seemingly insane ideas 3 such as mapping the moon and throat tattoo microphones (yep those are real).nAside from the cool futuristic stuff though the big G still has a little bit of fun thrown amongst the typical business-as-usual elements of thepany. Over the past decade Google has included fun little features into their most well-know tool 3 the search little features are known as Easter eggs. Fun little activities and quirky features that make the often mundane and second-nature task of looking for things via search a little more entertaining. Below is apilation of Google Easter Eggs and fun features you can do with a simple Google search.n Enjoy. italic n Atari Breakout nThis is one of the best ones to date. Go to your Google Image search and in the name of one of the classic Atari games breakout and you get to play the game using the directional keys of your keyword. Caution this one will eat up a lot of time so don do it in front of the boss.n Tilt nSearching for the word tilt within the search engine will skew your search results at a slight angle. All SERPs are still accessible and the browser defaults to normal upon searching for an additional term. The term askew also performs this feature.n Bacon number nFor almost 2 years now the game of 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon has existed. The game aims to prove that between any two people on earth there are only 6 people or fewer between individual one and Kevin Bacon. Typing Bacon Number followed by any actor you can think of will display their Kevin Bacon number. EG Bacon Number George Clooney.n Do a barrel roll nTyping in thismand into your Google search window will cause your entire search result to spinpletely off the screen and back again.n Google in 1998u232 nMy favourite one. Typing this one will render the Google interface as it existed in 1998. It displays the site courtesy of The Way Back Machine 3 a service that lets you take a glimpse into how sites used to look many years ago.n Zerg rush nAnother really fun one. Typing this one in your Google search window will cause the O in the Google logo to attack your search results. Clicking really fast on the O will cause them to lose strength and disappear. See if you can beat the attacking O before they destroy the entire page.n Kerning nTyping thismand will increase he spacing between the letters in the search results by 1 pixel.n Recursion nYou know when youre going up an escalator and there are mirrors on both sides and it essentially infinite? It a reflection of a reflection of a reflection etc. This is known as recursion. Typing recursion into Google results in Google suggesting that you were actually looking for recursion instead. Click on recursion will result in recursion which in-turn results in recursion which Im sure you get the idea here.n Conway Game of life nThis is a really nerdy one. Conway game of life is a mathematical equation created by mathematician John Horton Conway that simulates cellular automation. You can read more about it here 3 Conway's Game of Life %27s_Game_of_Life 3 but be warned it gets super nerdy really quickly.n Festivus nOne for the Seinfeld fans. Festivus is an alternative to Christmas made popular by George dad (who is actually Ben Stiller dad in real life) in Seinfeld. Festivus is a holiday celebrated by people who dislike themercialization of the Christmas holiday season. Part of the tradition is the Festivus pole a non-decorated metal pole in a stand 3 which is an alternative to a Christmas tree. Typing this result displays the Festivus pole up the entire left-hand side of the search results.n The answer to life the universe and everything nFor fans of The Hitchhikers Ge to the Galaxy 3 which if youre not one then get the hell off my site 3 this search result answers the ultimate question.n Anagram nAn anagram is a word play game that lets you shuffle the letters of a word or set of words to take on an entire new meaning. Typing anagram into Google provides an anagram of anagram 3 nag a ram.n define anagram nSimilar to anagram typing in define anagram provides a results asking you if you actually meant to search for Nerd Fame Again.n Marquee html nTyping this one will display the results found option at the top of the screen as a scrolling marquee. It suitable but still a little bit of fun. n B html nThis one will make the words B and HTML in the description and titles of your search results flicker on and off.n . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .n Bonus Fun Things Not exactly Easter eggs but a couple of other features that make searching on Google a little more fun.n The Muppets 3 Swedish Chef search nEver wanted to know what it be like if the Swedish chef from the Muppets was running the Google show instead of Sergey and the team. Then check this one out.n Google s n Klingon search nFor the Star Trek Nerds 3 check out your search results in Klingon. It only a matter of time until this one is on the Big Bang Theory.n Google s n Elmer Fudd search nLooking for a Wascally Wabbit 3 try this onen Google s nCopied from
Which browser works best with Quora?
Case 1 Commonly recognized differences in the performance of the main browsers based on how they work I am copying from one of my earlier answers for this ( Amar Prabhu's answer to What makes one web browser faster than another? answer aid 15123 ). I am also using the current Quora page as an all other factors (platform band processing power disk speeds memory and the page being viewed) to be equal(they should be for fairparison) the factors that determine the browsers speed in terms of what is perceived by the user are 1. The Layout engine engine nEach browser has a layout engine under the hood. For example the different browser engines used in browsers aren WebKit Chrome and Safari Gecko Firefox Trident IE Presto Operan The layout engine is what decides when what part and how HTML tags s 436 1152 nBefore someonements no I am not patient enough to scroll my way down I just wrote a script to do it. I did this on a puny net book with limited band so I say the design is not as resource hungry as you might think. nTo summarize relevance heren In terms of memory plugins and overall handling Firefox and Chrome are equals for overall usage. As I mentioned before even if you scroll to the last answer of power users it is highly unlikely that Firefox is going to have issues. Same can be said for chrome but not other browsers. So it boils down to Firefox again.n n Case 3 Hypothesize based on the two previous data points and some minimal amount of testing (even just a timed personal test is OK here) which browser is best for extended Quora usage No answer to paste from. So the benchmark here is multiple quantifiable factors such as RAM consumption CPU usage tabs opened and youtube objects played. Remember that no of videos doesn't matter at all. Only when you press play a new instance of flash player process gets instantiated. I could give a spread sheet but the numbers are split up and inconclusive. Other than IE (sorry MSFT) all browsers seem to offer something or the other. For example Firefox is something that is an essentail for me. Chrome has inbuilt pdf google sync etc. Safari is slick. Opera has gestures handles well turbo etc. I stick to Firefox on my Xubuntu 7 PC and netbook Safari on my iPad and Dolphin on my Atrix 4. There is no magic silver bullet for everyone ultimately (this is going to be my undoing). However here are my suggestions pick whats best for you Based on platforms n PC(modern processor 4+gig RAM blah blah) Firefox Safarin Netbooks puny desktop configurations Opera Safari Chrome Firefox IEn Android Mobile OperaDolphinChrome (available only for very small segment) (if not using a app which was until a few days ago) iOS - iPads iPhones Safari Dolphin (if not using a app) Based on user behavior n Multiple tab lovers Firefox Safarin Band conscious Opera - turbo enabled Stability desktop Safari Firefox Chrome(flash is the issue) n Stability mobile iOS Safari Dolphin n Stability mobile Android Chrome Dolphin Opera nFor those who insist on a single choice Chrome would be the best pick as of today simply because the adoption rate development pace and overall product is improving at a rate others cant seem to match. Disclaimer Benchmarks are just that -parison within strict boundaries. They are highly biased if not done under proper conditions and this is not a proper bench marking effort. Good Benchmarks take days with average cases and over multiple platforms not an hour on a single platform (which I did). You can read one of my answers on benchmarking bias heren Amar Prabhu's answer to Is the current Google Dalvik VM twice as slow as the Java SE Embedded VM? answer aid 1469597 *- Keith R. Lavimodiere user 84137 suggested that I post some of the stuff from my answers here. So thanks.
