GoDaddy’s Elephant Slaying is the Last Straw, NoDaddy!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 | Business | 6 Comments

GoDaddy is pushing it.  The CEO, Bob Parsons, posted a video of himself killing an elephant in Zimbabwe (I don’t even want to see it).  That is horrible.

For example, if you Google:

Firefox 4 Released

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 | Business | No Comments

The official release of Firefox 4 is today.

Slightly late to join the pack with some of the features.

Since the last major update of Firefox there have been 10 releases of Chrome.

Some of the new features have already been released in other browsers:

  • Bookmark sync (Chrome even has a more thorough sync feature)
  • Faster JS engine – every browser now sports a “faster” javascript engine with every release
  • Partial hardware acceleration – other browsers have better hardware support
  • Simplified interface – everyone has it, welcome to the club.  It just doesn’t feel as cleanly done as Chrome.

Google Chrome 10 Released

Friday, March 11th, 2011 | Business | No Comments

If you’re running Chrome … do nothing.  It’s probably already updated, or will be soon (you can also force the update if you want).

Some highlights of the new browser:

  • Faster (duh)
  • Searchable / upgraded settings screen
  • Password Sync
  • Encrypted passwords
  • Faster web apps (combination of running in backgrounds, and an upgraded JS engine)

Happy to be using Chrome.
