Quick Restore Point Maker

28 December 2010 2 comments

Customizable Quick Restore Point Maker has got a new UI with some changes. A setup file is also available which adds Create System Restore Point to your right click context menu. Details below!

Normally, to create a system restore point, you have to, via the Control Panel, open the System Protection box and then open the System Restore utility (rstrui.exe) to create a restore point.

Quick Restore Maker allows you to create one in a single click. The restore point so generated is named as ‘QuickRestoreMaker Generated‘ point.

Simply download and extract the content on the zip file and place the program folder in your Program Files folder and  the shortcut of its exe file to your Start Menu.

Now anytime you are trying out a new software or are tweaking your system, click on the icon to create a restore point first.

See source code of a website

We all know that, after visiting any website with browser, you can inspect the source code (HTML and JavaScript)simply by using

  • in Mozilla Firefox: View -> Page Source (or the key combination CTRL U)
  • in Microsoft Internet Explorer:  View -> Source
  • in Google Chrome: Tools -> View Source (or CTRL U).

But if you have doubts about the content of a web page and you want to inspect the source without loading it into the browser?

Firefox and Chrome offer a simple function to invoke.

Typing view-source: followed by the URL of the webpage to visit, the browser will not pass the source code to the rendering engine but it limit to expose the content of a web page in a window.

Try typing in the address bar of Firefox or Chrome

view-source: http://www.google.it

the browser will immediately display the HTML source of the page shown.

The command view-source: can be useful for expert users to analyze the source code  of a website before you visit, especially if you have doubts about its content. This is, we believe, a very nice feature that eliminates the need for more complex procedures (such as downloading the page via wget).
