As I have told you last week, this week I’m going to give you another guide or how-to tips. Well, I’m currently waiting for the VAIO July wallpaper, as many of you probably would. So here’s the deal, I’m going to wait until tonight, about 7PM as always (that’s GMT+7), to see whether the calendar wallpaper has out yet or not. If not, then I’ll post my finished guide. But if yes, then I’ll post the calendar first. No need to worry though, because there will be a post today
Well, yesterday I finished reading the controversial book Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps. It’s a great book, emphasizing on the differences between men and women, as well as several points to think over in the current situation. The book also gives several tips and tricks to better understand the opposite gender. I find this book very inspiring and I believe that you should read it. Where, you say? Well, you can download it via Rapidshare link. So in the mean time, enjoy the book, and see you next post..!

Yesterday, 17th of June 2008, was the Firefox Download Day 2008. It marked the release of the world’s famous browser, Firefox 3. The Spread Firefox Community website had a unique way to literally “spread” out the words, by having many users pledge to download it at the Download Day, starting from 10AM Eastern Time (that is to say, GMT-8.00) for 24 hours time to achieve a world record for the most downloaded software in 24 hours. At the time this post is written, it has been over 5 million downloads for the new browser. I myself have tried the Firefox 3 Release Candidates for quite some time, and I noticed several new features introduced in the new Firefox 3.
Probably the most notable change in the new version is that the new version has a new default theme, and each differs for every operating system. It is Strata for Windows (XP and Vista got a similar but slightly different theme), and Firelight for Mac OS X.
Firefox 3 also have a built-in download manager, with the ability to search through your previous downloaded files. Firefox 3 also integrates with your antivirus to check your downloaded file. Also the addons manager is being done too. You now can search through the addons that is installed on your Firefox, and they even give the plugins a single section, so you can view all the plugins you got for Firefox.
And the tabs in Firefox 3 also get new features. Now Firefox gives option to save the tabs or just quit the tabs. And if you accidentally close a tab, you can look in the recently open tabs section to reopen them. The bookmarks manager is also different and you can also search on your bookmarks now.
However, the most important change is that Firefox 3 generally loads webpages faster than the previous versions. And not to mention that it also much more “lighter” in the memory and performance.
