Submission + - A Closed Netflix Hurts Everyone (thepowerbase.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Here at “The Powerbase“, we usually report on software, hardware, or services which are open source. That’s sort of the whole point of this little thing we do. Someone browsing through our site could get the impression that the world is overflowing with open source projects, and everyone and everything is sharing data.

Unfortunately, that’s not exactly the case. While there is no question that open source has moved from niche to mainstream, there are still some big players who can’t seem to get their act together.

Despite some heavy internal use of open source software, and a decent effort to share some of those projects, Netflix is unfortunately a service which seems hell-bent on keeping itself as closed up as possible; which only serves to alienate their paying customers.

Submission + - Web Browser Grand Prix: Firefox 15, Safari 6, OS X Mountain Lion (tomshardware.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The latest browser benchmark results are in for Mountain Lion and Windows 7. On the OS X side, Safari 6 simply steals the show. Chrome 21 comes in second, followed by Firefox 15 which also presents a speedy option for Mac users. Meanwhile, Opera 12.02 isn't exactly the fastest OS X browser these days, placing last in test after test.

Google takes the lead in Windows 7, with Mozilla being a very close second. Between the stellar performance of Chrome and Firefox, combined with the loss of Safari for Windows, Opera takes a nosedive (comparatively) in the rankings. IE9 ties Opera for last place.

Testing in nearly every performance category shows that all the OS X browsers are slower than their Windows versions. Chrome holds up very well between operating systems, and could be considered the best cross-platform browser — an older article shows it scores the highest on Linux as well. Firefox is the second-best choice for HTML5 hardware acceleration on both OS X and Windows, only behind OS-natives Safari and Internet Explorer. IE9 still has the fastest single page load times and solid HTML5 performance. Despite Opera's comparatively poor performance it's still the most stable browser on any platform, requiring the least number of reloads and remaining responsive even when attempting to render 40 pages simultaneously. And although Safari for Windows is dead, Safari for OS X has never been better.

Submission + - SPAM: SILVERLIGHT SIP SOFTPHONE

An anonymous reader writes: Hello,

I want to add a softphone to my webpage. It is important for me to use Silverlight technology. In the past few weeks I tried some of the available softphones. Finally, I decided to build my own Silverlight SIP softphone that can be embedded in to my webpage (it is more flexible than the ready-to-use ones).
For this purpose I used the Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK. It offers a sample source for my project ([spam URL stripped])
and I also cooperated with the support team. The final result is very promising.

I hope I can help others in similar situation...

Best regards
