Like many thousands of others, I also use IE6, I just find it convenient & I can lock it up so I don’t have to worry about security issues. Sure I also use FireFox but my main browser is still IE6.
But I don’t use it directly, I like tabbed-browsing & pop-up blocking so I’ve been using Crazy Browser, which is an interface for IE, providing features which IE lacks like tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, script/image/active-x blockers etc. Its been 4 years since I’ve been using it & I’ve been satisfied with it, even though its development hasn’t continued after 2001. But now it seems is the time to move on. Crazy Browser has crashed on me three times in past 24 hours. Though it has crashed a few times in past too but not this frequently. So I thought its time to get another interface for IE. And one came to my mind immediately, Avant Browser. Read More
Yes, the Indian arm of eBay, Baazee.com really SUCKS!! 👿 They are hand in hand with fraudsters selling on their portal & to deceive buyers, they claim to have a Buyer Protection Program which they say is to protect buyers from fraudsters. 🙄
On 14th Feb. 2005, I placed a bid on an auction at Baazee for a Nokia Handsfree. Below is the picture of the product on auction that was displayed by the seller giftsindia Read More
Today, 15th March 2005, was the second & final day of Macromedia MAX 2005 Conference here in New Delhi, India. And it promised to be really cool than what it was yesterday!! 😀 I was waiting for the conference to begin, & it began right at 9am IST with Greg Rewis again. 😀
Yes, Greg Rewis for 3 sessions. He started off the first session with using CSS for page layout, instead of Tables. Ok, several guys have been pushing me that I should embrace CSS based page layouts & I’ve been kinda avoiding that because of the lack of time I’ll need to put into learning about creating CSS based page layouts. But what Greg showed today in the first 20-30 minutes is that its really easy to do a CSS based page layout, & using a CSS based layout means a lot of flexibility. I mean I never thought that I can create a CSS based page layout so easily, and though he demonstrated this by using DreamweaverMX 2004 & its advanced CSS features, I really don’t need it for that. Its for those who can’t hand code. But I can hand code that faster that it’d take me to do it via Dreamweaver, really cool stuff. I’ll be trying that out next, really many thanks to Greg for easing that out. 😀 Read More

Mobile handset market is seeing some of the toughest competition that I’ve seen in any market with all makers trying hard to woo customers.

What the heck!! 😀 Read More

Yes, the Blo.gs & Weblo.gs domains & their respective databases are for SALE as noticed on the For-Sale notice on Blo.gs. (via WeblogToolsCollection)
Like Mark, I too wonder that if the sale proceeds, will the new owner(s) continue the current service or just buy the domains for their traffic & pagerank? 😕 Read More
