Changing text size


Browsers often allow you to zoom into or out of a web page.

Examples:

- Chrome on Windows:
-- [triple dot button] / Zoom / + [Keyboard: Ctrl +]
-- [triple dot button] / Zoom / - [Keyboard: Ctrl -]

- Chrome on Mac OS X:
-- View / Zoom In [Keyboard: Command +]
-- View / Zoom Out [Keyboard: Command -]




Searching Edgecase Datafeed


Browse to Google.
Use the "site" prefix to limit searching to the Edgecase website.

Example:
- Search for "site:edgecase.net bitcoin"




Searching in an article


Browsers usually allow you to search for specific text on a web page.

Examples:

- Chrome on Windows:
-- [triple dot button] / Find... [Keyboard: Ctrl f]
--- Press Enter to move to next found instance.

- Chrome on Mac OS X:
-- Edit / Find / Find Next [Keyboard: Command f]
--- Press Enter to move to next found instance.

The section names are usually listed in the Contents section. You can search for a section name (e.g. "Basic GPG Commands") to move to that particular section. You may have to move through several instances (e.g. mentions of that section elsewhere in the article) before you arrive at the section itself.

The Summary section often lists the names of the parts of the Notes section. Searching for the name of a part (e.g. "Necessary functionality for an RSA software implementation") should bring you to that part (although again, you may have to move through several mentions of the part before arriving at the part itself).




Logo shortcut and Navigation Menu shortcut


Clicking the Edgecase logo at the top of the page will cause a random article and a random quote to be loaded.

On a touchscreen, tapping the Edgecase logo will have the same effect.

On a small screen, a button called "Navigation Menu" will be displayed below the logo. This button, when tapped or clicked, will move the web page to the navigation menu below the article. At the top of the Navigation Menu, there will be a similar button called "Back to Top", which will move the page back up above the article.




Author names and Edgecase datafeed name


Article metadata is shown at the top of the article. The author name (e.g. "StJohn Piano") links to the author's page. The datafeed name ("Edgecase Datafeed") links to the datafeed page.




Browsing all articles


The number in the text box can be changed. Then click the corresponding "display previous" or "display next" button (some browsers may let you just press Enter).

Note: The first article is datafeed article 0. Article 1 is therefore the second article.

Example: Suppose that the latest article is datafeed article 89. Then setting the number to "100" and clicking "display next" / "display previous" will cause all 90 articles to be listed.




Opening links


Many browsers allow you to open a linked page in a new tab.

Example: In Chrome,
- Right-click the following link and choose "Open Link in New Tab".
