Fancy Your Browsing @ Mozilla 4

October 10, 2010 at 5:02 pm (Gadgets, New Technologies)

With the changing demands of web based architecture, the usage patterns have also changed while a person is sitting on browser. People are in habit of keeping numerous tabs and organizing them is still a mess.

Mozilla is ready with the new generation of firefox. Firefox 4 beta is released for preliminary testing but ideally speaking, its the fanciest browser I have ever seen. There are couple of things that are taken from chrome and some of them are new.

Out of all the outstanding features, the best is the tab grouping, which allows you to group tabs and a nice way of exchanging tabs within groups. The session sharing within tabs are also cautiously done while migrating within tabs.

Other things that make things handy is a bookmark button, private browsing and short menubar. Apart from this, the variety of plugins available on firefox legacy keeps it aside from other generation of browsers.

Since, its a beta version, installation of mozilla 4 won’t affect the earlier installation of mozilla. This means you can keep both versions of the browser at the same time. So, don’t hesitate to give it a try – http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/beta/

New Power Saving Search Engine By Google

April 14, 2008 at 5:37 am (Gadgets, Google, New Technologies) (, , )

Google is the second Brain to many of us. We use it frequently. It uses
white screen which consumes higher power.

Read the following?

“If Google had a black screen, taking in account the huge number of page
views, according to calculations, 750 mega watts/hour per year would be
saved?!!!!!

In response Google created a black version of its search engine, called
Blackle, with the exact same functions as the white version, but obviously
with lower energy consumption:
Help spread the word.. Use ” www.blackle.com“…
