Wow…this is annoying. And here I sat, thinking I might actually use this browser…not a chance in hell if it won’t support standards.
Firefox having only been out less then a year is already being plagued with elementary style Spyware exploits and Pop-ups. This is only a sign of things to come. The Followers however should have taken note to Beware of false Prophets.
Interesting read, though this guy seems to be a bit on the pessimistic side. Sure, Firefox has it’s flaws…but the difference from IE is that Firefox actually has a team of developers that will fix the problems that are discovered in a matter of days, not years like IE. None one ever said Firefox was immune to spyware, adware, or claimed any time of perfection, it’s just the best option for right now.
Update 3: Well, mirrors have been popping up all over the place…I hope it has nothing to do with my sharing the files Anyways…check out this one for an idea of what the original looked like (Gmail is added)
And the modified version I made
Update 2:Here is a screenshot of what it looked like before they took it down…Oh, and I have the code from the page (and all the images) if anyone is interested in recreating this. (I have already )…
Update: Interestingly enough this has been taken down since last night apparently. Spectulation is some type of legal problems with the “dock-like” part of the site and OSX’s dock …though somehow I feel like that would be an incredibly stupid reason to take this down. Ah well…we shall see what the future holds I guess.
Pretty damn cool, and pretty damn cool considering this was posted about 45 seconds ago…I got a scoop biotch
In other news, Hell has not frozen over yet, but it very well may. Apple has just recently reduced the price of its wired mouse to $29 and its wireless optical mouse to $59. The two-button wireless optical mouse would likely debut at the $69 price point once reserved for the company’s current wireless mouse.
But wait, I thought Steve Jobs (CEO of Apple) thought Apple users were too stupid to use a 2 button mouse? …He’s repeatedly said that it would just confused users. …Boy I hate that man.
I recall my first time with a condom, I was 16 or so. I went in to buy a package of condoms. There was a beautiful woman behind the counter, and she could see that I was new at it. She handed me the package and asked, if I knew how to wear one.
I honestly answered, “No.”
So she unwrapped the package, took one out and slipped over her thumb, She cautioned me to make sure it was on tight and secure. I apparently still looked confused. So she looked all around the store. It was empty.
“Just a minute,” she said, and walked to the door, and locked it.
Taking my hand, she led me into the back room, unbuttoned her blouse removed it. She unhooked her bra and laid it aside. “Do these excite you?” she asked.
Well, I was so dumb-struck that all I could do was nod my head. She then said, it was time to slip the condom on. As I was slipping it on, she dropped her skirt, removed her panties and laid down on a desk.
“Well, come on”, she said, “We don’t have much time.”
So I climbed on her. It was so wonderful, that unfortunately, I could no longer hold back and POW, I was done within a few minutes. She looked at me with a frown. “Did you put that condom on?”
I said, “I sure did,” and held up my thumb to show her.
The manual helping you with the proper installation of the bridge card is on the back side of the package. Again, there is not a single word about SLI support. Hopefully, by the time they “legalize” SLI support by the competitors’ chipsets, which should happen some time in Q2 2005, SLI bridge cards like that will already be selling in all stores and their makers will no longer need to hide.
Rather amusing the stupid things retailers have to go through to sell this bridge card. Though, it will be great (and easy) to setup a SLI system if I can only find one of these bad boys…
Sources say that IE 7.0 â€“ which is code-named “Rincon,” they hear â€“ will be a tabbed browser. IE 7.0 will feature international domain name (IDN) support; transparent Portable Network Graphics (PNG) support, which will allow for the display of overlayed images in the browser; and new functionality that will simplify printing from inside IE 7.0, partner sources said. The new browser also will likely include a built-in news aggregator.
Thank god…I’ve been begging for support for transparent PNG’s for how long?
Developers have been clamoring for Microsoft to update its CSS support to support the latest W3C standards for years. But Microsoft is leaning toward adding some additional CSS2 support to IE 7.0, but not embracing the standard in its entirety, partners say.
Oh dear god, don’t do this to me guys… This is the only reason people (well ok, just nerds and web developers) will return to IE, otherwise it’s on to bigger better things like Firefox.
This is a new project by MS to combine MSN Search and RSS Feeds into a easy to use (and quite attractive) DHTML-powered website. If you read RSS feeds this may be useful for you.
Update: This site is using the Microsoft RSS technology that is being rumored to be integrated into IE 7.0…
This isn’t about nitpicking marketing claims, we’re going to be breaking down some really uncool stuff involving taking GPL-based code from PearPC (among other projects) and completely false performance claims being used to get people to hand over their cash.
This is a very good summary for someone who has no idea what this debate is about or for someone who has been following it the entire time, a very good read.
