Web Browsing Tips – Tab Groups

by Colin - Jun 24, 2011


Personally, I usually use Chrome for the majority of my web browsing. Being LearnKey’s webmaster though, I need to at least have a copy of the major browsers around to test things, and I recently installed an update to Firefox 5. Our graphic designer Kari pointed out a pretty cool and useful feature Firefox recently added to their updates – Tab Groups.

Say you’re working on a few different projects at once, and you don’t want to mix up the different tabs you have open between projects. You could open a new browser window and separate them that way, but Firefox’s Tab Groups feature lets you keep it all in one window, and switch between groups easily. It’s fairly similar to the Spaces feature in Mac OS X.

Web Browsing Tips – Disable Compatibility View

by Colin - Jun 17, 2011


When you work with websites for a living, you tend to pick up on the different quirks of all the web browsers. You know which ones have trouble with spacing, or which ones work better with certain Flash objects, and so on. For most people who don’t live their lives inside a web browser, it can be confusing – and that’s why we’re here to help!

Internet Explorer 8 and 9: “Compatibility View”

At first glance, you may see Compatibility View and feel the need to turn it on, or else your web experience might be glitchy and broken.

Happy Flag Day!

by Allacyn - Jun 14, 2011


Happy Flag Day! This is a holiday that has always confused me. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that it is a day to honor and celebrate our country’s flag, but why would we celebrate the flag on a separate day from our Independence Day?

HealthStream Summit 2011 Recap

by Greg - Jun 09, 2011


I recently attended the HealthStream Summit at the Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville, TN. One year ago, the first floor of the hotel was covered with 10 feet of water; in fact, much of the Nashville area was pounded by flood waters. What an amazing feat to bring the hotel back to its original beauty. I snapped a couple photos with my cell phone, but it does not begin to capture the grandeur and detail of the environment. It’s a complete ecosystem under a glass shell. If you find yourself in Nashville it is definitely worth a visit.
