More Attack On Firefox Than IE This Year

Thursday 4 August 2005 @ 1:00 pm

As Firefox supporters, we always argue that Firefox is a better and more secure browser over Internet Explorer. More secure in the sense of less security flaws, I suppose. Somehow this argument is not right based on statistical data provided by a security advisory service, Secunia, at least for this year, 2005.

The report in the UK-based IT trade publication states: “There have now been more flaws in the Firefox browser this year than in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.”

Yahoo Gonna Challenge Google AdSense

Thursday 4 August 2005 @ 2:48 am

Yahoo is planning to launch on Wednesday, August 3, 2005, its ad network for small Web publishers intended to compete against rival Google in text based ad. Google AdSense has been enjoying kind of monopoly in text based ad services since its launch, now Yahoo hopes to tap into the same ad territory.

In fact, Yahoo has been working on this self-serve advertising service tailored to bloggers and other small Web publishers for months before decided to launch it publicly.

Now Yahoo will play to that constituency and challenge Google’s pricing power in one of the fastest-growing online mediums: blogging. Like Google’s service, Yahoo’s self-serve product will display text ads deemed relevant to the content of specific Web pages. Advertisers pay only when a reader clicks on their ads. Yahoo and publishers will split the fees.

Microsoft Teaches You How To Uninstall Linux

Wednesday 3 August 2005 @ 1:23 pm

LoL …. Saw something really funny in Microsoft website. It amused me. :))

There is an article posted in the Help & Support Center of Microsoft website. It is posted long time ago and the last review was on March 14, 2002. The article is about “How to Remove Linux and Install Windows XP” !!

This article explains how to remove the Linux operating system from your computer and install Windows XP. This article assumes that Linux is already installed on your computer’s hard disk, that Linux native and Linux swap partitions are in use (which are incompatible with Windows XP), and that there is no free space left on the hard disk.

After looking at it, some thoughts came into my mind. Who will actually uninstall a Linux then install a Microsoft Windows? Most of the Linux users will not turn back to Windows after switching, right? Besides, if one knows how to use Linux, it’s almost certain he/she knows how to uninstall it and install a less complicated OS, isn’t it? :D

Anyway, maybe the article might help someone who accidentally install Linux and wish to switch back to Windows.

Gmail Notifier For Desktop & Firefox

Tuesday 2 August 2005 @ 11:56 am

I believe most of us have Gmail account, right? Anyway, just in case you still do not have any, email me, I’ll send you an invitation right away.

Ok, since most of us have Gmail, don’t you feel it’s quite troublesome to login to Gmail account to check whether you have got any email from time to time? Especially when you are waiting for an important email coming into your Gmail account.

Well, there are actually two great applications to help you on this.

Gmail do have its own official Gmail Notifier, which is a Windows application that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. You’ll need to install it on your system and run it. Basically, the notification functionality of Google Gmail Notifier is similar to MSN Messenger (For Hotmail) or Yahoo Messenger (For Yahoo Mail), except you can’t use it for chatting. :p
