Firefox 3.5

July 1, 2009 Leave a comment

I’m busy updating my Firefox. (For some reason it didn’t do it automatically.. Meh.) I’ll be super stoked if it really is twice as fast as Firefox 3 (as they claim)..

Here are some of its other features: (Direct scrap from their release notes)

* Available in more than 70 languages.
* Support for the HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements including native support for Ogg Theora encoded video and Vorbis encoded audio.
* Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
* Better web application performance using the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
* The ability to share your location with websites using Location Aware Browsing.
* Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
* Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
* Support for new web technologies such as: downloadable fonts, CSS media queries, new transformations and properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 local storage and offline application storage, <canvas> text, ICC profiles, and SVG transforms.

I suppose I don’t really know what most of that means, other than the Private Browsing mode, which I’m guessing is like Google Chromes “Incognito” tabs.. Or as I like to call it, the Porn-Browser!

Amped for the speed increase of course though!

As far as HTML5 is concerned, I read a bit about it on wikipedia.. Couldn’t be bothered to read to closely, but from my skim-read it sounds quite exciting. I found it interesting that the two editors are from Google and Apple! Hmmm…

Gotta re-set my browser now.
Bye.

Stumble?

June 11, 2009 Leave a comment

I’m bored.

From the slew of open tabs on my browser, its obvious that, where this boredom could have evolved into something productive, it simply landed in a dead end of Facebook, Myspace and the almighty StumbleUpon

One more click

The only reason I’m writing this at all (apart from simply for something to do), is to give fellow Stumblers something vaguely amusing to look at(is it wrong to submit your own blogs?), because so far tonight I’ve been getting mostly really lame stuff.. And I get really annoyed when that happens!

In my current position, this amused me too..

Yeah.. Just as I thought..

So now you’re probably asking the same question as me..
What am I still doing here?

Introduction

June 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Hmm…

So I’ve been reading a lot of different blogs lately..

Mostly those inspiring ones with all the cap-munching, pretty pictures, helpful stuff, interesting stuff, music stuff, angry stuff..

And I though.. I’m a (relatively) interesting person, so I thought I’d grace the wonderful wold of the Internet with my whimsical musing.. Or maybe just write about some stuff!

I got inspired by an article I read in some journal or other (might have been the absolutely incredible Graphis Annual, but probably not), about how HTML was invented for linking information.. But how Web 2.0 has twisted the whole thing around.. and now, with social networking sites like Myspace; its used in a sense to link people, or sort of digital token people (hence the header: “The b1ts and bytes 0f me”).

This really got me thinking.. Its almost like we’ve created a whole new population of digital people. These people live on web page houses, shop in iTunes and eBay shopping malls, hang out together in chatrooms and forums, and document every part of there lives, uploading photos, Tweeting, and writing blogs, all a (some may say: pale) reflection of their living breathing counterpart sitting behind the keyboard..

We have our little pets, all with our faces; Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, MSN, Skype, you name it; and they need constant attention.. As we strive to define and establish ourselves in a totally new cyber-space world that didn’t even exist 5, 10 years ago..

All this runs around my head as I embark on my latest project of fleshing out my little character. Think of this as a little splash of colour, a little more information, the 1:20 detail to my web-space working-drawings.
