Oct 4th 2010 4:02PM I love to see features like this, but damn that was a short interview.

Ping finally gets proper iTunes integration (Download Squad)

Sep 27th 2010 10:39AM Wow, maybe soon they'll be anywhere close to last.fm :)

Make Firefox 4's UI slimmer than Google Chrome - no add-ons required! (Download Squad)

Jul 19th 2010 10:48AM That looks great!

As for my UI trick, I just use Vimperator (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4891/). Who needs a UI? :)

Is the AutoHotkey project dead? A quick word with the developer (Download Squad)

Jul 5th 2010 3:56PM Thanks for doing a feature like this, it's nice to hear some word from projects which may or may not be dead.

Why Ubuntu Netbook fails in real life (Download Squad)

Jun 7th 2010 11:01AM Also chiming in on the hatred for the word "fail" as a noun. It's become incredibly annoying.

As for real critique of the article, In find it to be a bit shallow. It identifies a minor problem, but fails to offer deeper analysis. I think the reason Linux ha problems with adoption is because of the tiny issues like these. There's dozens of edge cases that can come up and ruin an install. I think if they were on the user's default os (Windows), they wouldn't be as much of an issue, because it would just percieved as an annoyance. But because the effort was made to switch to an alternative, the issue becomes larger. No one would say "Windows has problems with , Linux will succeed". The problem is that Linux can't just be as good to gain marketshare, it needs be better by at least the cost of switching.

Firefox Friday: getting down and dirty with the Firefox Creative Lead, Aza Raskin (Download Squad)

May 21st 2010 1:13PM Glad to hear some news from Ubiquity. It was one of the most interesting projects at Mozilla, and then it just kind of...died. The suggested integration of it in the browser as Taskfox (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Taskfox/Use_Cases) seemed like it could really shake things up, but news from that has been pretty sparse. I can see why Ubiquity got put on the back burner though. It was a really interesting idea, but there were some issues with the implementation (command name space collisions was the most major that I can think of).


Also, sorry if this gets double posted; I forgot the @gmail.com the first time. Sorry about that!

Facebook "Like" boxes randomly sprouting baby Facebooks - they're not very cute (Download Squad)

May 14th 2010 3:54PM I just adblock those frames anyway. They're useless and ugly.

Farewell to Facebook, at least for now (Download Squad)

May 13th 2010 2:42PM Congrats. More people should delete their accounts (and encourage their friends to do the same) to show Facebook that this just simply isn't acceptable. I doubt that doing anything other than that will have any effect on them whatsoever.

Firefox Friday Five (Download Squad)

Apr 30th 2010 2:52PM Interesting stuff out of Mozilla this weekend indeed. I look forward to Fennec on my Droid. The default browser is ok but lacks some features, and Dolphin is buggy adware.

Also, on another Mozilla note, does anyone know of a good site for introducing interestin addons? I'm always on the look out them, but I mostly use addons.mozilla.

Latest Firefox nightly adds tab bar-cramping customization (Download Squad)

Apr 29th 2010 4:40PM I'd highly recommend Tree Style Tabs if you're worried about too many tabs. I've got mine set to vertically along the side, and to be hidden with one button (
