Every now and again one comes across an awesome plugin that demonstrates some fantastic integration between day-to-day applications and IBM's Connections collaboration platform.  This one is a Connections search plugin for Chrome, and it's awesome.

From the description:

"This extension let you search content within IBM Connections.

The IBM Connections QuickSearch plugin let you quickly search for users or content within IBM Connections and update your profile picture using your webcam or an existing picture.

Use the popup window in the upper right corner of chrome in order to search within Profiles (with type-ahead feature), Files, Forums and so on.

You can also use it directly from the URL navigation bar, by typing "ic" (without any quotes) following by a space then your query. Then press enter for a global search or arrow keys to reduce the scope."

As in Figure 1 - above - just type "ic" to activate the Connections search in the type-ahead bar, and then type your search string; OR click on the Connections icon to limit your search to specific features of Connections.

The first time you activate the plugin you will be asked to enter your Connections server settings, including:

Your server,
Your username, and
Your password

Pretty simple.

"Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I

stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read content from other authors and use a

little something from their web sites"

"Great article I've been following along, and when I get to the Load Unpacked Extension part, the icon that appears in chrome://extensions has something added to it. It's a camera symbol inside orange circle. This is laid on top of my icon in the bottom right hand corner. What is that?

I don't know if you noticed that, but Hover Zoom is not a good friend . Why?. Well, if you mouseover the thumbnails that appear as soon as a video ends, Hover Zoom will not open the thumbnail picture, it will open the VIDEO (with sound included)!! so you don't need to enter each one of the 9 suggested videos, you can watch them right there though.

Facebook Chat Privacy yet another tool to allow people to be rude and inconsiderate. You don’t feel like answering someone right away? Well let’s put it this way if you had an emergency and you needed an immediate answer from someone in real life and you asked them a question in person and he/she ignored you and then 5 hours later decided they would answer you. Would you like it? I think not. There’s never any excuse to be rude and inconsiderate to someone who’s never done you any harm whether online or in person.

Hello there, I do believe your site might be having browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, excellent blog!

Single job extensions are useless and ultimately clutter. The full screen/page capture tool. That is all it does... nothing more. I'd rather use, ""Nimbus Screenshot & Screen Video Recorder"", which not only captures a full screen/page, it can capture what we see, what we select and it can record tab or desktop into webm format. Plus it has on screen editing tools in both screenshot and video record modes. Tools to add text, shapes, various arrows, blur out text and more. Much like how news reporters on TV add arrows to live traffic reports is what the tools in video mode can do.

Hey thanks for the recommendations! Panda 5 looks interesting! I would recommend adding Night Eye in a future video. It is damn good if you are working/browsing at night. It enables dark mode on pretty much any website you visit and does it smartly (not just invert everything).

My favorite Chrome extension is unpinterested! When searching Google for images, I don't want to see Pinterest images. If I wanted to see Pinterest images, I would search Pinterest. An added bonus is when searching Google for ANYTHING, the results don't include Pinterest.
