    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...

    Whenever someone takes your work that you spent many months developing and nurturing like a small baby child and then goes and rips the guts out and calls it home is rather disturbing and maddening. Such are the feelings Microsoft is feeling after the Google Chrome IE plugin we recently talked about. The plugin essesentiall allows Google Chrome to run inside of a frame within IE.

Out of the 4,466 participants, a full 69% believed that an early grasp of technology is a must in todays world. A notable admission to make! The report goes on saying that repetitious percentages aside, Cana...

    **Image taken from Mashable** Look back in time to the year 2008 (so long ago...I know) and try to remember when a little browser called Chrome was released into the spotlight. At first, there was a ton of fanfare and downloads as geeks and even non-geeks alike rushed to download this new hyped up browser.
