Working as a desktop support with 30+ windows/apps open at the time calls for virtual desktops, I have tried Sys internals desktops - fail, tried VirtuaWin and haven't look for any other replacement. Can have virtual desktops setup as I like, can have one window shown at all desktops, another window always at the top etc. etc. The best tool I have used
:) Did i mention that virtuawin is packaged as a portable app (portableapps) = even easier to deploy and use when you are unprivileged user.
How come, noone mentioned SPDY. Chrome uses SPDY instead of HTTP for delivering content from google services to google chrome. It has it advantages, apparently it is faster ( benchmarks anyone ? ) but it also allows google to push unrequested content (ads ads, more ads) to the web page you have requested, going over any and all adblocks you may be using.
Nice work, great way to advertise Google Chrome on Slashdot.
Hi. I was using FF 4, since early beta. Fantastic release, seams like a different browser in comparison to 3.x. I have one question though, still waiting for GPU accelerated layers on Intel GMA 950 - when FFX will support GPU (win32/d3d) ?
Why don't you all trolls go hide in the woods of 'doing nothing thinking i know everything'. 1. Download Firefox 4b12, Opera 11.01 and latest Chrome (beta or dev). 2. Run speed test. 3. Benchmark Java Script performance. 4. Benchmark flash player. 5. Check how flash playback (youtube) works - is it fluent, hiccups (opera has problem caching flash = youtube hiccups). 6. Check if it can load all images http://stevesouders.com/hpws/max-connections.php - http timeout
7. Compare UI performance look and feel.
When you do all that instead of looking at screenshots, and reading other people opinions, post a comment. Hell Chrome is just a copy of Opera web browser, opera first introduced tabs, yes it is a definitely a copy... trolls.
I wouldn't worry too much, since Australia is upside down the rating will be 51+, so it's all ok, she'll be right, fair dink-um. Sleep tight Aussies, no USA game's gonna spoil your child's mind untouched by civilized or remotely intelligent thought.
/. = the voice of reason. Thanks for reasonable replies to that topic. It seams like all other news/blogs I'm reading are deep in Microsoft's pocket, favoring crazy point of view that Bing/Microsmurf did nothing wrong.
