I don’t consider myself to be particularly “green” in mindset. However I try to recycle everything I can (in our household we recycle more than we throw away), and I have a soft spot for the animal kingdom.
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.
Google has introduced the new Gmail Motion.
You can see the demo video below:
Update 4/2/2011: Researchers have actually gone ahead and implemented the ridiculous spec, here’s the follow up video:
Go to Google, and search for “Helvetica”

Man do I hate that logo.
I’m not lending any credibility to these pictures, for all I know they’re just doctored up — but everything happening recently has been leading to this.

Today I just saw the Google search bar disappearing while bouncing back and forth between results (you know click, it’s crap, hit the back button).

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)
- 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.
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.
