Entering the second day after Firefox 3.0 was released, mixed feedback was heard. Personally, I am satisfied with Firefox 3.0, except the Smart Location Bar, or so called Awesome Bar. I don’t like the autocomplete nature of this Smart Location Bar, as it lists out the possible bookmarked site or previously visited sites while I’m typing in the address. I know the purpose is to save my time and hassle to type the whole address but it’s annoying me more than helping because I need to choose from some irrelevant results listed. I guess some Firefox users who used Firefox 2.0 before the upgrade will feel the same too.
If you are thinking of disabling this Smart Location Bar from automatically listing, do some tweaking to Firefox 3 then.
Within the first 5 days of this new version available, Opera 9.5 has received more than 4.7 million downloads. Pretty impressive I would say, but it’s just about half of the download total Firefox 3 received in 1 single day! The total download for Firefox is now surpassing 11 millions downloads worldwide.
Firefox is always my preferred web browser to Internet Explorer (IE) and I’ve been using Firefox for more than 4 years already. Today Mozilla, the developer of Firefox, has released the long awaiting Firefox 3.0!
without a doubt, I immediately grabbed a fresh copy of Firefox 3.0, installed it, and is already using it now. I’m so glad Firefox has reached another milestone by releasing this latest version with more than 15,000 application bugs fixed, enhanced security, faster browsing speed and better browsing experience. More new features are :-
- Password Manager
- One-Click Bookmarking
- Instant Web Site ID
- Full Zoom
- Smart Location Bar
It’s been so long since I last updated my AdsMinded WordPress Theme. My Apologies.
Today, I’m rolling out the widgetized version of AdsMinded for both AdsMinded Original and AdsMinded Wide layouts. With this new version, you are now able to add advertisers’ codes into the ready-made widgets resides in sidebar, centerbar, squarebar & header. There is no need to mess with the template codes anymore! See picture below for better illustration.
Received an email from the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) at noon today and I thought I should blog about it immediately before the habit of procrastinating in blogging hits me again. When it comes to spreading love to the world, I should not procrastinate at all!
This 20th June is World Refugee Day and in conjunction with it, UNHCR Malaysia wish to encourage people to understand more about refugees in our country. Refugees are different from migrants, refugees do not choose to leave their country, they do not have a choice but to do so because of difficult living conditions in their home land. We currently have over 39,000 refugees and asylum seekers in Malaysia.
A 90-second video clip named “Hands of Hope” was produced in Malaysia pro bono for UNHCR by the advertising agency EURO RSCG KL. Check it out :-
Price of petrol in Malaysia is officially raised to RM2.70 today from the previous RM1.92. It’s a whooping 40.6% increase overnight! So, it’s time to start spending more time at home than driving on the road.
You get to read the notes of most the lectures, some you may even find lecture audio or video in it!
I think now I have 1 more reason to stay at home sitting in front of the PC despite I am too old to be a student. :D
