  1. Firefox 3 – Download Day

    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (153 words)

    Today is Firefox 3 Download Day! Mozilla are hoping to set a Guinness World Record for most software downloads in 24 hours. At the time of writing, over 1.2 million people have pledged to download Firefox 3 on the Download Day! This is a first attempt of this record, so there is no number to beat. But Mozilla want to outdo the number of Firefox 2 downloads on its launch day, which was 1.6 million!…

  2. rel-tag-spaces dilemma

    Posted on . Estimated read time: 3 minutes (414 words)

    Since I started using the Operator Firefox extension a couple of week ago, I’ve found it to be a useful tool – to quickly access microformatted content; such as Contact details and Tagspaces. Whilst I was testing it out on ReadySteadyBook, I noticed that the only tagspace was “Blog.aspx“, which seemed a bit weird. When I found the same problem on other websites, such as Amazon (example here) where the tagspace was “ref=tag_dpp_cust_itdp_t“. I thought…

  3. “Powered by Category Cloud”

    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (220 words)

    I’ve just installed Operator – a Firefox extension that highlights microformatted data on web pages. So far I haven’t noticed any performance issues, and it’s been playing nicely with all my other Firefox extensions. As a web developer, Operator makes me want to add more semantic mark-up to my websites, (which I already try to do). This extension will make it easier for testing purposes. I decided to read more about the extension on the…

  4. Sneaky Skype installing Firefox Extension

    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (190 words)

    We’ve got an old laptop that we keep under the coffee table, so that we can quickly check IMDb or Wikipedia for mid-conversations things (very geeky I know!) Since Katelyn arrived, we’ve been using it for web-cam too. Yesterday we were having a few problems with voice chat on MSN, so we installed Skype on the laptop. A couple of clicks later, Skype was installed, all was good. Then about 5 mins later I notice…

  5. IE View Lite 1.3.2+ not compatible with Firefox 2.0

    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (215 words)

    I used all sorts of add-ons and extensions for Firefox, (I’ll get around to writing a blog post on that soon too). Since I do a lot of web-development, I switch between Firefox and Internet Explorer frequently during a build. To make this easier, I’ve been using Grayson Mixon’s IE View Lite. But with the latest upgrade (version 1.3.2), it broke in Firefox 2.0! (This made me sad) :-( I’d been holding out for the…

  6. Mozilla Prism – Bringing Web Apps to the Desktop

    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (160 words)

    I feel like I’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of months.  I’ve only just heard about Mozilla’s Prism – and it’s already changing the way I use web-apps. Prism, (previously called WebRunner), is essentially a Site Specific Browser (SSB) – meaning that it’s a desktop application designed to host a single web-application.  This is good for many reasons, foremost it causes less distractions. So far, I have prisms set-up for most…

  7. Dodgy PNG Colour Rendering

    Posted on . Estimated read time: under a minute (32 words)

    I thought I was going mad, but it seems that browsers (specifically IE6/7 & FF) still render PNGs differently! (It’s related to the Gamma Correction and Colour Correction)
