Friday 15 July 2005 @ 11:29 am

Microsoft’s MSN is going to launch a new version of Hotmail codenamed Kahuna. Kahuna will have a new style of interface, automatic inbox refreshing and a preview pane that will enable Hotmail users to read and respond to e-mail without ever leaving their inbox. :)

According to sources familiar with the upgrade, Kahuna is a limited beta that is not heavy on features as of yet. Its interface is known internally as “Wave 11” and is designed to be lightweight and “clean” for better performance. Further integration with MSN Spaces and Messenger is said to be forthcoming.

Firefox 1.0.5 Released !!

Wednesday 13 July 2005 @ 12:54 pm

Hey guys,

The Mozilla Foundation on Tuesday, July 12, 2005, released Firefox 1.0.5, the latest version of Firefox browser with several vulnerabilities fixed. This should be another boost to Mozilla Foundation as Firefox, a better alternative browser to Internet Explorer, has already surpassed 70 million download mark, in less than 3 months after going past 50 million mark !!! Come join the 70 million safely protected web surfer now, by clicking Download Firefox !!

“This is a collection of security bug fixes and stability improvements,” said Chris Hofmann, Mozilla’s director of engineering. “We’re also trying to anticipate some potential security problems with this update by patching vulnerabilities that alone aren’t that significant, but might be used together to create an exploit. Most of them involve quite a bit of user interaction.”

Another great news is similar updates for Thunderbird and Firefox 1.1, codenamed Deer Park will be available very soon too !! Firefox 1.1 will be the first version of the open-source browser to offer an internal software update mechanism that doesn’t require a complete download and re-install to upgrade the code.

Download Firefox 1.0.5 now : Download Firefox

I’m now sailing using Firefox 1.0.5 !! :)

Google Toolbar For FireFox

Google FireFox Toolbar

On Thursday July 7, 2005, Google launched their beta version of Google Toolbar for Firefox !! Finally it is released as Google previously only offered a toolbar for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

The toolbar offers a Google search box (though this feature by default appears in FireFox :D ), search news articles, page rank, spell check, translator, and Google’s AutoLink that turns street addresses into links to a map. Page Rank Personally I like the page rank and translator feature. With Gooegle Toolbar now we just have to point to the word then the translation of the word will appear, useful and come in handy. The green bar in the page rank feature gives you an idea of how high the webpage you are viewing is ranked in Google.

“Not that long ago, the Google Firefox Toolbar team met for the first time – and now we’ve built the Google Toolbar for Firefox in 10 languages for three operating systems (Windows, Mac and Linux),” said Tech Lead Justin Voskuhl in the Google Blog.

Google Factory Tour

Google Factory Tour
We have seen some factory tours of computer device manufacturers before like, Gigabyte Factory Tour I posted back in April. I just come across Google Factory Tour a few hours ago, so thought of sharing with you all.

Google released on their press center about the factory tour which took place on May 19, 2005. There is a webcast clip of the tour, but I need to warn you first, it is a VERY long clip !! I spent not less than 20 minutes watching it, and after the 20 minutes Marissa Mayer (The 2nd presenter of total 13) is still continuing her speech. Anyway, no doubt it is very informative for anyone interested in knowing Google more. The clip covers how and why Google services are created.

Google Got Sued For Click Fraud

Friday 1 July 2005 @ 4:23 pm

Click Defense Inc, a click fraud protection firm, filed the suit in California in the name of an unknown number of plaintiffs for an amount not less than $5 million. This law suit was filed in US District Court against Google alleging breach of contract, negligence, unjust enrichment, and unfair business practices due to the click frauds suffered by their advertisers.

Colorado-based Click Defense, a company that specializing in procuring rebates for advertisers, says the average cost per click is 50 cents. Disputing the 20% estimations, Click Defense alleges that click fraud on Google is as high as 38%.

The 18-page documented lawsuit claims that since 99% of Google’s revenue comes from advertising, Google has a huge financial interest in doing little about the instance of fraudulent clicks and criticizes the search giant for failure to disclose its own estimate of the number of fraudulent clicks.
