How to Use Multiple Accounts in a Single Browser Window [ChromeVille]

What do you do when you want to manage multiple accounts of a website in a single browser window? Chances are you use another browser or the incognito mode as generally, you can only operate one session at a time. Now, thankfully, there’s a new Chrome extension which makes things drastically easier to handle.

Meet SessionBox

SessionBox is a free extension available for Google Chrome which seamlessly and simultaneously lets you initialize more than one sessions of any website in a single window. Hence, for instance, you can use two Facebook accounts in just separate tabs. The process too is surprisingly straightforward and is obviously, better than juggling between different windows.

Creating Multiple Sessions

Once you’ve downloaded SessionBox from the Chrome web store, click the little cube icon and log in. You can also sign in as a guest if you’re not planning to sync the data with other Chrome devices. Next, you’ll get a list of all your saved sessions which will be of course empty, initially.

  • For storing a session, head over to any website, tap the SessionBox icon, and hit the plus button beside the site’s URL.
  • A new window will pop up where you can feed in the session’s name, hovering over the big cube icon will allow you to customise the color as well as the icon (custom icons is a premium feature), and by clicking “more options”, you can also assign it a group. Don’t worry, you can do this later too through the session list.

  • You can then, fire up the sessions list and reopen this tab anytime later. Or you can load them up all together by organizing them in groups.
  • Furthermore, if you don’t really want to save a new session, there’s also an option for creating a temporary session. Right click on a website, Sessionbox, and lastly, click “open in a temporary session”.

There are a couple of keyboard shortcuts too such as “ctrl+up+x” for generating a new session, “ctrl+up+a” for a temporary session, and “ctrl+up+s” to open the SessionBox menu.

As far as security is concerned, the company mentions the extension achieves the purpose by harvesting its own data variables, not the shared browser storage. Additionally, you can also opt in for a premium account at $1 / month for employing some paid features including custom icons, session proxy, the ability to bookmark sessions, and more.

SessionBox is definitely one of the must-have extensions available out there for Google Chrome, so go ahead and give it a shot if you’re looking for something like this.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
