So do I, in addition to my winbox at home.

My question is, when did you get your mac, and what did you get?

Who'd have thought the day when both Nav and I were running Macs, and not only enjoying it, but proud of the fact!?!!?



I got it about 3 weeks ago, give or take a few days. It's a 15 nch powerbook with 1 gig of RAM.

I never would have imagined I'd have a Mac, but once I realised that a computer is a computer is a computer there became no reason not to. It's still UNIX with a different front end on it. I can run KDE on it if I really flle like I'm lost. wink


Picture perfect penmanship here.

I have noticed a bit of a difference between IE and Firefox. I did the majority of my testing with Firefox.

Firefox flies into over drive

http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=20453

Is it a bird... is it a plane..?

By INQUIRER staff: Thursday 30 December 2004, 22:09 Tyan Tomcat i7221 Server board

ASK ANY OF FIREFOX'S avid supporters and they'll tell you it's the fastest browser around, true or not. Well, the INQ's stumbled on a little tweak that's easy to do and sends the browser into overdrive.

All you've got to do is type "about:config" into your address bar, wait for it to load, then alter the following entries: change "network.http.pipelining" to "true", "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" and lastly "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to 30, meaning it will be able to make 30 requests at once.

Don't bother if you're one of the unlucky sods still without broadband, but if you are, then give it a shot. I've tried it out and it works like a charm. Thanks to forevergeek.com! ų

==================================================

Tried it here at work. Seems to help some. *shrug*

Some other very worth while extensions are:

BBCode - Adds BBCode to the context menu for forums.
BookmarkSynchronizer - Sync your bookmarks across all your computers. VERY USEFUL!
downTHEMall! - Download all images on a page based on their extension and other settings.
AutoMarks - Use the location bar to autocomplete URLs from your bookmarks! VERY USEFUL!
Image Zoom - Adds zoom functionality to images
Tiny URL - Easily create TinyURLs of the page your viewing from with in firefox
CopyURL+ - Copy the URL of the current page along with the title or the selected text.
FirefoxView - If you still use IE sometimes this will allow you to select a link to open in Firefox.

Sorry, I don't have time right now to grab the links for all of them so you'll need to google their names.

Adblock - Best Ad Blocker Ever

Tabbrowser preferences - preferences for tabs

Firefox growth is checked

"The growth in popularity of Firefox appears to have been checked for the time being. For the first time since its November 2004 release, the Web browser's share of total Internet usage fell."

What's up with that? Word of security exploits slowing down adoption?

beta 3 is out.

One thing I am liking about IE7 is that when you minimize it to the tray, it releases memory back into the wild. I have had 13 tabs open all day now and the memory was up to 173mb eek I minimized it to the bottom and memory went down to 11mb smile Right now memory is at 55mb after pulling it back up.

Firefox is using more than 66mb after being open less than 7 minutes.

I fear that these improvements with IE7 will either make FFox listen to the outcry of memory usage, or break the cammel's back...
