Windows 7 RC vs Mac OS X 10.5.7 -Firefox cold start

leave a comment »

The test was done on the same two machines as the boot-up test.  As a matter of fact, this video was shot seconds after the ending of the boot up video.

Friends tell me Firefox was designed for Windows, which is why it’s so much quicker. I honestly like to ignore them, because that shouldn’t be an excuse.  I am really looking forward to the final release of 7 so that I can pin it up against Snow Leopard.

I am going to love Windows 7 on my desktop at home.

Firefox 3.5 cold start:

Ok. So it’s official Mozilla has released Firefox 3.5.  It only took them 99 beta versions, and three release candidates.  But it’s here.  Go get it.  Enjoy the new features.  Now that it’s official I’ll be writing up a post on new features and improvements.

Firefox 3.5

Firefox

Firefox 3.5 has either been released or it’s Release Candidate 3.  An update prompt appeared at 12:06am EDT on my machine. I am not sure, but I am leaning towards RC3 since Mozilla’s site directs you to an RC3 download when clicking latest 3.5 build.

More Awesomer Awesomebar

leave a comment »

FFwiki

We all know that Firefox’s awesomebar is pretty damn awesome, but there’s another feature that makes it, dare I say -more awesomer.  If you type a  domain name without the protocol and top level domain Firefox will attempt to add the appropriate ones for you.  If it isn’t successful it’ll send you to the Wiki page of something it “thinks” you meant.  To go straight to a wiki page just include the keyword “wiki” with whatever you’re typing.  If there isn’t anything related on Wiki it’ll use your default search engine to display search results.  I know, it’s pretty awesome.

Be more awesomer, use the Firefox.

Absence and FireFox 3.0

leave a comment »

Those of you who have been here before will notice that I haven’t updated my blog for quite some time.

The best reason I have is the fact that my laptop is in Texas, I am in Kentucky. See the problem? It was supposed to have been fixed a long time ago, but fucking HP keep pushing the date back, and I am starting to lose my cool! How fucking hard is it to replace a damn motherboard? From my past experience it’s not that fucking hard.

Every time I talk to HP they give me some bullshit excuse, and I am starting to get fed up. If my laptop doesn’t arrive by the 17th (as agreed upon) I will be royally pissed. They are trying to convince me it’ll take them another 2 weeks (making it a total for 4 weeks) to fix the laptop. Bullshit. I want my fucking laptop back HP!

On a brighter note. For those of you that don’t know what else is happening on the 17th I’ll be more than willing to enlighten you.

June 17th, 2008 is DOWNLOAD DAY!

What’s download day?! It’s the day you get your sorry ass over to http://www.firefox.com, and download FF3. Do it. Don’t ask questions. Just do it.

It’s worth the time. Free yourself from the evil hands of Microsoft and Apple, and set yourself free with FF3!

Well that’s that, a quick update. I am sure I’ll be back bitching some more because my laptop isn’t repaired.
