  • Firefox: “The choice of criminals”

    If I may quote the ‘Alternative browsers pose challenge for cybersleuths‘ article by C|Net: Internet Explorer hides nothing from police and other investigators who examine PCs to discover which sites the user has visited, according to a class held Wednesday at the annual training meeting of the High Tech Crime Investigation Association. Investigators know the […]

  • Happy Birthday Firefox

    A year ago, to the day, Firefox 1.0 was launched. So I guess a ‘happy birthday’ is in order. 😎 In the past year this little app shook up the browser world.

  • The end of IE 5

    I’ve given up on IE 4 and Netscape 4 a while ago. Meaning I won’t do anything extra for them anymore. They’ll just have to take the page as-is, no unnecessary or fatal script errors though, but that’s where it ends. If it doesn’t work or looks horrible, too bad. So how about IE 5? […]
