Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Internet Explorer fight it out
The Browser Wars are heating up again. First there was the funeral party for Internet Explorer 6 (let’s hope it stays buried), then we had the EU mandate for the Browser Ballot, a feature which has lead to the corrosion of the IE’s install base, Firefox overtook Internet Explorer 7, and recently, we saw the release of Opera 10.50 – the self-proclaimed Fastest Browser on Earth… As we were putting up the finishing touches on this article Microsoft released a sneak peek of Internet Explorer 9; and not a moment too soon as you will learn soon.

Hey Folks…..how are you? Have you ever heard about the concept of mobile pairing via bluetooth…??? I have an idea about the same concept about the w- fi routers. What if we pair the wi-fi device with the wi -fi home routers. The main concept behind this idea is to stop the hacking of the wi-fi networks and stop the piracy of the internet and thus we can avoid hacking of the networks. Continue reading Router Pairing
While Google might have dashed to the front lines with its Chrome browser-based OS, it is Firefox which is more suitable as a base for an operating system: With its near unlimited extensibility thanks to add-ons, plugins and themes, you can make your Firefox supremely powerful and uniquely you. When one looks at the array of applications built on the same powerful framework as Firefox, one realizes how much more appropriate it is as the basis for a cloud operating system; compared to Google Chrome, that is.

Slackware is old. No really, it’s OLD! If you’re used to the likes of Ubuntu or any of the other modern GNU/Linux systems, setting up Slackware would seem like you’re back in the early 90s.
Some will argue that Ubuntu and the rest that try to make life easier for desktop users don’t give that fine-grained control over the way you set up your system. Why should a distro try to make choices on your behalf? By configuring your system from the bottom up, you’d ultimately learn the internals.
Most people know shortcuts in Windows but neglect to find out shortcuts in KDE when they make the switch to Linux. So, if you have a shortcut in KDE that isn’t covered here…please comment it so that others can benefit from your knowledge! PS: Some of these might not work with your version of KDE…just test them out and see if they do!

WHOA TechCrunch, slow down, there’s a question mark at the end of that heading! More and more I’ve been trying to make sense of the various news and social networking outlets I frequent on an hourly basis. Sure, you’ve got your Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace accounts to worry about but throw in your favorite RSS filter/reader and you could spend an entire day plugged into the internet and never read the same thing twice. It can be a bit overwhelming. We are slowly inching towards a Matrix reality where we are jacked into the internet, learning ju-jitsu in 10 seconds, and then fighting an African-American mentor in a digital dojo. Some think it terrifying, but I think it’s exciting!
