Fokus Highlights Selected Text on the Web and Dims Everything Else

Chrome/Firefox: Much like how Turn Off The Lights lets you focus on your videos and dims everything else in a web page, Fokus highlights selected text and darkens the rest of your Chrome or Firefox window.

The extension is simple to use. In Chrome, you just need it installed and any time you select text, it will highlight that paragraph in a spotlight and fade out the rest of the page in a dark frame. You can specify the opacity of the darkened background, the padding of the highlighted part, and even include a key modifier if you don’t want it to be always activated.

In Firefox, you will have to hit the “F” icon in the toolbar and then highlight text. Do note that the latest 0.5 version requires you to be running Firefox 29 or a later version of the browser, which is in beta. If you’re on Firefox 28, you’ll need to download the older 0.2 version.

Create a Folder From Any Selected Items in the OS X Finder

Share

Need to toss a bunch of items in a folder really fast? OS X has a nifty shortcut that manages the operation in one fell swoop so you don’t have to make a folder and then take further action to populate it.

Just select the items you want in the Finder, right-click (or two-finger tap) on them to bring up OS X’s contextual menu, and choose the first option: New Folder with Selection. The Finder will then create a new folder with those items stored safely inside, removing at least one step from the process for you automatically. Super easy!
