Firefox 4 Beta9 GUI Sucks

Saturday, Jan 15, 2011
Firefox 4 beta 9 was released and I had to try it. It’s not in freebsd ports yet so I tried it under wine.. I tried it and it seems to be much, much faster than 3.6.x The speed improvement is very nice and long over due.. but the GUI? Why in the world would they get rid of the status bar? I depend on that to see where a link may be leading me to.

Trying Out Windows 7 Public Beta Soon

Saturday, Jan 10, 2009
Microsoft is releasing a public beta of windows 7. Once I get my older hard drive installed in this computer I think I may give it a try to see what it’s like. Even though I rarely use windows at this point I need it for a few things like mapping software for our gpsrs and some other little thinks like that. Vista is on Molly’s laptop and I just don’t like that.
