SOPA: Statement by Senator John Cornyn

Senator John Cornyn (R) of Texas via his Facebook page:

SOPA: better to get this done right rather than fast and wrong. Stealing content is theft, plain and simple, but concerns about unintended damage to the internet and innovation in the tech sector require a more thoughtful balance, which will take more time.

Web Browser 101

Post written by Olive Dove

  • The best thing about web browser is freedom of choice.
  • Back then there were Internet Explorer & Netscape.
  • The advent of Firefox with its revolutionary free download, browsing speed, tabbed browsing and add-ons has eroded share of market of then behemoth Internet Explorer.
  • Options available today: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome (choice of Chromium for Linux OS users), Opera, Flock (a Mozilla Firefox-based social media browser), Midori (a lightweight open-source browser for Linux OS users) and Safari (for Mac users).
  • Google Chrome has revolutionized web browser with its minimalist & sleek interface, and improved speed.
  • Each browser has its own distinctive strengths: 
  1. Firefox 4 - Encrypted sync across computers and mobile devices, and unbeatable add-ons.
  2. Google Chrome 10 - Constant improvement in speed, and auto complete sync of browser bookmarks, settings and extensions.  The complete sync enables users to enjoy the same customized browser on any computer.  The latest feature is Chrome Web Store that offers a wide range of apps and extensions in anticipation of Chrome OS launch.  It is best used for cloud computing like Google Docs.
  3. Internet 9 - Seamless integrations with Windows 7.
  4. Opera 11 - Turbo mode that is fantastic for slower dial-up, EDGE and 3G connections. Opera is the pioneer in auto sync and such feature has enabled it to work seamlessly with Opera Mini 6 on mobile device.
  • Firefox, Chromium (the base for Google Chrome) and Midori are community-driven open-source projects.
