For Kath: How to replace every mention of “Internet of Things” with “Skynet” and vice versa in your Chrome browser.

  1. In Chrome, install the Word Replacer 2 plugin.
  2. Click the plugin settings, select settings.
  3. Click ‘new’ on the left and enter your item name (I’ve called mine “Internet of Things” in the left box, “Skynet” in the box next to it on the right.)
  4. At the top of the right pane, select ‘Swap’ (or just ‘Simple’ if you just want “internet of things” replaced, but IOT mentions of Skynet turing into Internet of Things).
  5. Type “internet of things => skynet” into the right pane’s text box, and hit return/enter.
  6. Click Export (ensuring the tickbox is still selected on the left next to your new item).
  7. The instruction will be made into code, and shown to you. Something like this …Fullscreen capture 17032016 103325 AM.bmp
  8. Click ‘Apply to selected’ after the code has appeared.
  9. Click the ‘x’ to close the settings window.
  10. Click on the Word Replace II icon and ensure it’s enabled (the term enabled will be green).
  11. Search for “Internet of Things” and see if it works. (If it doesn’t, I’d blame Skynet.) Also, checking the “Internet of Things” Wikipedia page becomes amusing.
  12. PS If it is working, this post clearly won’t make sense anymore! Winking smile
