From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Introducing the Toxic Toolbar for GT-N7000 Users
I’m pretty sure most of you have at least one tab on your browser dedicated to XDA whenever you’re online. If not, you’re doing it wrong. We previously brought you news of a handy browser plugin to improve your browsing experience from within the XDA. However, there may be times when you’re forced to drag yourself away and visit another site. Yes, apparently there is more to the Internet than XDA Developers. Wouldn’t it be great if you were somehow able to keep track of what was happening in your device’s forum while you were tending to your other Internet activities?
XDA Senior Member toxicthunder has developed a Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer add-on that allows you to do just that. Although at the minute it’s designed specifically to cater for the needs of GT-N7000 users, there may be features that other users find useful. Some of the main features include:
- Custom search bar
- Latest news from the Portal
- Shortcuts to subscribed threads, PM’s and online contacts.
- Message Ticker
- GMail style “slide in” notifications
- And many more…
It would be great to see if this could be tailored to suit the specific needs of other device users. So if you have experience with this kind of thing, head over to the release thread and inquire about creating a version for your own device. What better way to make the rest of the Internet feel like home.
