    5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Firefox

    By | September 1, 2007 | 9 Comments

    FirefoxIt’s time for my final “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like” post. Firstly it was Internet Explorer, then Opera and now… Firefox. For obvious reasons I won’t post “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Safari” as Safari 3 is still a beta. I hope that you enjoyed those posts, sooner or later I will come back to this “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like” posts again. Till then I hope that most of those reasons and/or problems/annoyances will be fixed soon. And here it comes…

    1. Firefox needs to be restarted after each add-on and/or theme installation.
    2. It has very less features so you have to install dozens of add-ons. Why I don’t like to install add-ons? See 1′st reason.
    3. Poor download manager.
    4. Sometimes happens when I click back (why can’t it just BACK?).

    Firefox Error

    5. I don’t know why but Firefox team ignores some of the security issues. Do you like that?

    Pingdom Gives Away $120 000 In Free Accounts

    By | August 24, 2007 | 0 Comments

    Mr. Uptime Firefox plug-in is celebrating it’s 1 year anniversary, congratulations. For this reason Pingdom.com is giving away $120 000 in free accounts (1000 accounts total worth $120 each) so hurry up if you are interested. For Firefox users only, nice promo.

    Why Pingdom?

    Your website was probably down last month. Email servers, FTP servers, firewalls, and a multitude of other services can also perform poorly or even stop responding entirely.

    The question is, are you aware of it? Do you know when it happens? Do you know for how long? This is where Pingdom comes in.

    We can monitor all aspects of your website and other infrastructure for you and instantly let you know when anything goes wrong. Not only that, Pingdom will also collect a great deal valuable and useful statistics for you.

    Q: Why do I need Mr Uptime?

    A: On a daily basis millions of Internet users encounter websites that don’t work as intended. In most cases you as a user just want to visit a website to get information but can’t because of various kinds of issues. It could be a problem on your end, with the website, or somewhere in between. Mr Uptime will help you by informing you when the website is working correctly for you again.

    Why Firefox Is Blocked?

    By | August 21, 2007 | 2 Comments

    It’s all about ads blocker…

    You’ve reached this page because the site you were trying to visit now blocks the FireFox browser.

    whyfirefoxisblocked.com

    And here’s why:

    Software that blocks all advertisement is an infringement of the rights of web site owners and developers. Numerous web sites exist in order to provide quality content in exchange for displaying ads. Accessing the content while blocking the ads, therefore would be no less than stealing. Millions of hard working people are being robbed of their time and effort by this type of software.

    This is interesting but it won’t change anything.

    P.S. Not only Firefox can block ads. Will it block those too?
