Mozilla just released their newest Firefox browser 3.0 RC1 buit. It is still intended mainly for developers though and should not be considered as final but it’s out of Beta status now. If you have Beta 5 with autoupdate on, you should already have RC1 today. Looks and works really fine and the changes are nice too. Here is the list.

What about mobile world? Not quite brilliant… I can’t wait to see Firefox Mobile which should be available next year. It still has a long way to go but looks very promising, as its goal is to provide full desktop experience on mobile devices, with a stunning finger friendly interface.

Processing power

Value for money

leave a comment »

Recently a friend asked me to set up a computer rig for him. This is nothing unusual as I do this few times a year and the rig is mostly the same with cosmetic differences. This time it wasn’t the same… Vista ready rig, as usual quality components, dual core AMD64, gigabyte of RAM, huge HDD and low-midend nVidia graphics card for just over 300 EUR!!! Throw in another 150 EUR and you have 19″ Asus widescreen. I’m staggered how fast the prices go down! It’s a pity that hi-end graphics cards are still in price as I would love to own something like 8800 Ultra or 9800X2. Any ideas?
