Browser Wars Episode V: Mozilla Strikes Back

Well it would seem that Mozilla didn’t like the way Microsoft did the comparison chart on its brower and other competitive browsers, because after the release of Firefox 3.5 they did their own chart of Firefox vs Internet Explorer.  Of course, I have to agree with PCWorld that Mozilla is wasting everyone’s time with this little chart especially when comparing only five areas  while Microsoft covered ten.   Of course, Microsoft was at least nice to compare themselves with two browsers instead of one, but still what is the point of …

Microsoft Sticks It to the European Union

Who would have that after many years of lawsuits that Microsoft finally can screw over the European Union and get away with it.  It would seem that because EU cried for the removal of Internet Explorer from Windows 7.  So Microsoft complied and decided that since they had to remove IE8 from the operating system that they would double the price tag for Windows 7 over there.

Windows 7 Week Day 2:  Get Those Features On XP/Vista

Ever since Windows 7 beta came out, there were features and little programs that everyone wanted to use on XP or Vista or rather some people created the software equivalents for people to download and use.  To keep things simple, I point you to the various websites that describe the software packages and how to set them up and save a bit of time from reading to much about them.

Lets kick off Tuesday with a Windows 7 week, though this time I think it is possible to get a full week out out of this and so to make up for yesterday’s lack of post it will be double the fine today.  First up, the pre-order price tag that has become big news in recent days and why is it big news?  Well Microsoft has made the upgrades 50% off, OH MY GOD!!, (500 orders later)…Noooo I got bamboozled by Microsoft’s cheap tricks again, thats right Microsoft has set …

Internet Explorer 8 Campaign

Even though I gave praise for Microsoft and its food campaign, it seems that the big headlines this week is the comparison Microsoft is making with Internet Explorer 8 and everyone else.  interestingly enough you be surprised by the results….ok not really but yeah IE8 wins in all the categories, shocking I know but at least Microsoft was gracious enough to give some ties with other browsers.

Microsoft Donates Eight Meals For Each Internet Explorer 8 Download

It would seem Christmas comes early this year and who do we thank for this Microsoft, and the question is why must there be something attach in order to help the needy?  Don’t get me wrong it is a great gesture and all, but shouldn’t a multi-billion dollar company being this already?

Microsoft & Free Anti-Virus Software!!??

On the eve of Windows 7 Microsoft plans to roll out some special, free Anti-Virus service.  Of course,  most of us laugh hysterically at the thought it would work successfully.  I have to admit though that even though it is Microsoft I am still a bit surprised that they are not making people pay $300 for it or some other outrageous price.

If Browsers Were Women…I Hope Not

I was browsing the net today as I was slowly uninstalling useless programs off my computer and game across this interesting title called If Browsers Were Women.  At first I was like, this should be some interesting reading as it should have wonderful adult words,  but luckily it isn’t as each description is very short and sweet and to the point.
