Sad really.

From Firefox to Chrome


I've been a Firefox user for some time, but I finally moved to Google Chrome. While I know there are kinds of posts and in depth articles on the web about Chrome, I moved because Firefox could not handle my old Microsoft technology sites.

Expanding Google Analytics


If you use Google Analytics, you may occasionally wonder.  While it is possible to code your web site with multiple unique Google ID's, if you wanted to uniquely track eight different folders you would be required to create eight Google ID's, and install that custom code on your web site (i.e. Install Greasemonkey (a common Firefox add-in which enables scripts).

Viplav Baxi Meanderings

The central idea  here is to use a lightweight Linux based kernel and the Google Chrome browser (that is built over the WebKit engine) to offer “speed, simplicity and security&# to the end user. Google Gears will be an important component for offline applications. Boasting impressive capabilities and blurring the lines between online and desktop apps, some features of HTML 5 have already made its way into Firefox, Chrome and IE8. It’s nice to hear of a new operating system coming up. Of course, all applications on this OS will then be Web applications.

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Firefox doesn’t support H.264 format, while Safari will only support that, and Google introduced the new WebM standard but supports both WebM and H.264 formats.

Google releases open source browser

Jay Cross

The online learner’s favorite tool of all time, Firefox, will never look the same. Google just brought out an open source browser. Google Chrome leverages Google’s knowledge of page popularity, mal sights, pfishers, and so on, but the new browser sounds like it breaks new ground in flexibility, speed, and robustness. Google enlisted the wonderful Scott McCloud to pen a elaborate cartoon that digs into the details. Hear that? It’s the web world being turned upside down. Actually, it will be out in twelve minutes.
