If You Love Baseball, Get Baseball Dash – Baseball MLB New Tab Page – Chrome Web Store

If you love Baseball and use the Google Chrome browser, I highly recommend “Baseball Dash”. The developer of “Baseball Dash” had contacted me to take a look at “Baseball Dash” and I have to say, I am very, very impressed.  You will not be disappointed…

“Baseball Dash”, after installed, will appear when you open a new browser tab. The first time I opened it I was prompted for my name and then my favorite Baseball Team. In my case, it was the Baltimore Orioles (not doing so good this year). Now when I open a new tab I get beautiful wallpaper background  (related to my team), a search box, the current weather, the time, the ability to buy tickets, current news on my Orioles, and a baseball schedule.  It doesn’t get any better than that; but, it does. I nearly missed this. On the left side of the page you will see “Links”. You can add your own links, which makes it convenient to load your favorite websites. To modify some of the settings, such as changing the search provider or turning on/off the weather or clock, you will find a “gear icon” in the bottom left corner. In the end, “Baseball Dash”, in my opinion, is one of those hidden gems on the internet that I just love coming across.

To get the full drift of what “Baseball Dash” is all about, click on the image below to see a screenshot of my computer screen.  Also, if interested in “Baseball Dash”, the source link is below. I highly recommend it…

Browse on your Android devices like no one is watching…

Here is an Android app, called Firefox Focus, that I highly recommend for your Android-based smartphone, tablet, and Chromebook. Firefox Focus, built by the same maker (Mozilla) as the Firefox browser, has been engineered for our Android mobile devices with privacy, safety, and security in mind. When you browse with Firefox Focus it automatically will block a wide range of online trackers; AND, will automatically erase your history, passwords, and cookies (which, by the way, is the method used to bombard you with unwanted ads). I use this browser a lot, to supplement my regular browser when I am shopping on the internet to prevent the cookies from haunting me with ads. The install on this is small (less than 3 MB) and works great on all Android devices, including the Chromebooks that support Android app installations.

A Lightweight (Simple In Design) Music Player For Android

Here is an really nice, lightweight, and simple Android app (with advanced features), called Musicolet, that plays music files (mp3 etc) that you may already have in your personal collection. Musicolet does not support internet-based music streaming and as a result requires no internet related permissions or connections. It is 100% FREE with no ads. Musicolet has become my go to music player when it comes to playing my personal music files.

To install on your smartphone, simply go to the Google Play Store app and search for Musicolet…
