  • Dolly Parton gives two thumbs up for IE8
    by Mike
    Posted November 16th, 2009 at 9:20 am
    You know, I really hate it when companies pay off people to support their products. People who have absolutely no idea bout the product or market the product is used in. Such people like Dolly Parton and companies like Microsoft get along well together. It's the people who are technologically retarded that often become the poster children of "dumb celebrities". Dumb not only because they are like a sheep being led by a wolf, but for carelessly and blindly accepting monetary "donations" for s...
  • Opera already has working iPhone browser. Your turn Apple…

    Those enough who either don't want a higher end smartphone or simply can't afford one know that on your mid to lower-end devices web browsing is a chore. Pages render like crap, it takes forever to open a simple link, etc. Many phones as of late are capable of running some form or another of the Opera browser whether it be the free, almost universal Opera Mini to the more desktop-like Opera Mobile variant. Either way, Opera while not quite the reckoning force it would like to be in the deskto...
  • Latest Google Chrome 4.0 beta brings 30% speed increase, cross-computer bookmark syncing

    I love Google Chrome. So much so that I even use the nightly builds on my MacBook Pro. On my Windows machine, it's Google Chrome 4.0 beta all the way. It's extremely fast and efficient. But it's getting faster. The latest build, Chrome brings a 30% speed boost compared to previous versions. Now again, Chrome is already fast so a 30% boost in this sense is roughly a couple tenths of a second. You're not going to notice it like you would going from say IE 6 to Chrome 3.0. Regard...
  • IE6 falls to Firefox. Nipping way at IE overall one bite at a time…

    When considering modern, worldclass browsers, IE doesn't necessarily rank high on my list. A brand new browser that utterly chokes and dies on simple web standards tests is by no means modern no matter the shipping date. Many browsers and developers from Mozilla, Apple, Google, and many other smaller 3rd parties are gunning to dethrone IE and capture their own slice of the browser pie. While Microsoft still holds a commanding overall lead in the browser world with 64.64%, that dominance is fa...
  • Google Chrome 3.0 portable edition ready and waiting…

    Sadly, not every computer you sit down at will be owned or maintained by someone as technologically savvy as you. I'm sure one of your worst nightmares is sitting down at some computer other than your own in need of a quick internet session only to find IE 6 starring back at you as the only browser choice. A quick Google Chrome download will work, but what if you don 't have install rights on the computer? No worries. Whip out your flash drive locked and loaded with Chrome 3.0 portable. ...
  • RIM job app signals webkit browser in the works

    Spend any time surfing the mobile web? If you do so using a BlackBerry of any type, I'm sure you know the utter catastrophe that unfurls before your eyes each and every time you try to navigate to the web page of your choice. 3rd party solutions such as Opera mini and Bolt have until now given us worthwhile solutions that make browsing an outright joy. Still, in the age of the mobile internet, having your own slam dunk browser is key. Look no further than Mobile Safari on the iPhone and the ...
  • Chromium coming to Mac before ball drops into 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 8:41 am
    If you haven't been following the daily builds of Chromium for Mac, you may not realize just how far along the browser has come. In it's current form it has pretty much replaced my need for Safari on my Mac, though occasional crashes and glitches to rear their ugly head from time to time. Though such things are expected on a beta product that isn't supposed to be released until 1H of 2010. Contrary to earlier reports however, Chromium Mac users may be getting an early Christmas present fro...
  • Bolt BlackBerry browser gets bump to 1.5
    by Mike
    Posted October 7th, 2009 at 9:07 am
    If you actually use the internet on a BlackBerry for anything worthwhile, you already know how terrible and downright useless the standard browser is. Thankfully there are options. Today's focus will be Bolt. A new browser relative to other players' time on the market such as Opera mini doesn't mean that Bolt is eons behind. Far from it actually. Even the first 1.0 build was awesome. With 1.5 that awesomeness only gets better. The list of updates is rather impressive and just goes to show...
  • Mozilla releasing Firefox 3.6 beta October 13th. Maybe.
    by Mike
    Posted October 7th, 2009 at 8:23 am
    If Firefox 3.5 is getting a bit stale for you, October 13th is your day to relish *hopefully*. It is this fine October day in which Mozilla will formally take the wraps off the next iteration of Firefox version number 3.6 -- with a beta tag attached of course. While the Firefox team is pushing hard to meet that October 13th goal, if they happen to go over a few days to weeks, "there's no shame". Now before you go wild in the streets and start trying to guess all of the new goods, you'll n...
  • Full-HTML Opera mini based web browser coming to AT&T featurephones
    by Mike
    Posted October 5th, 2009 at 1:20 pm
    With the demand for mobile internet quickly growing and manufacturers rushing to keep up, the line between the traditional "smartphone", "featurephone", and "dumbphone" are quickly becoming obscure. It was only a couple years ago that a top of the line smartphone was the only way to enjoy WAP web pages and now, a few short years later we have HTML browsers cropping up all over the mobile device price range. But it's about to get even better. AT&T; has just released a generous selection of fe...
  • Google Chrome gets a slew of new “Artist Themes”
    by Mike
    Posted October 5th, 2009 at 12:56 pm
    If your artistic eye has been giving Google Chrome the looksie for some time now but are damned near the end of your rope, having to stare at that plain jane blue/greyish tint that current adorns the Google born browser? Google responded several months ago with a new themes section allowing users to skin their browser with several different colors and styles. Though, the initial themes that were released were "ok" at best as most of them suffered from god awful color combinations and layou...
