Discover Google hidden search results Have you ever reached the bottom of a page of Google search results only to be informed by the web giant that some of them have been removed? Often those results are taken down in accordance with America’s Digital Copyright Millennium Act (DCMA) because they breach copyright.’

Google has even made it easier for copyright holders to remove URLs from its services by filling in a removal petition (bit.ly/remove473). That doesn’t mean those censored links suddenly disappear into the ether, though – and the new Google Unlocked extension (bit.ly/unlock473) can reveal them for you.

Working quietly in the background, “the tool scans those complaints, extracts the links from them and puts the links back into Google results, all in a matter of seconds,” according to the developers. Google Unlocked is also available for Firefox (bit.ly/unlockff473).

Focus on the tabs that matter

Google beta browser. Chrome Canary, receives nightly updates for developers, and a recent one has introduced the long-teased ‘Focus this tab’ feature. To switch it on, type chrome: //flags/i/focus-mode into Canary’s address bar. Select Enabled from the drop-down menu, then relaunch the browser to start using the feature.

Now you can right-click a tab and choose ‘Focus this tab’ to open the web page in a separate browser window. The focused tab is decidedly minimal and doesn’t even have an address bar – although right-clicking the window lets you go Back and Forward and Reload the page.

Protect yourself against CSS attacks

It’s not only JavaScript that can be turned against you by malicious hackers looking to steal your private data. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) – “one of the building blocks of the modern web,” according to developer Mike Gualtieri – also suffer from security flaws that could leave you exposed.

To combat this threat, Gualtieri has created the CSS Vulnerability Tester (bit.ly/mike473), a website that checks how vulnerable your browser is to a CSS data exfiltration attack. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe to try. If you find that your browser is susceptible, the site prompts you to download the CSS Exfil Protection (bit.ly/exfil473) extension for Chrome.

This brilliant browser tool stops cybercriminals using CSS elements on a site to surreptitiously obtain information about you, although your browser may still be vulnerable unless you disable other extensions. It’s also available for Firefox (bitly/exfilff473).
