That’s it. Enjoy.
Just recently, search engine giant halted older browsers support for few of their apps. Turns out, it’s only the beginning, as Google spokesman said: “We plan to stop supporting older browsers for the rest of the Google Apps suite, including Gmail, later in 2010″.
This move is slightly unexpected, as IE6 still owns 20% of browser market share. As for older browsers quote, Firefox 2.0, Safari 2.0 and Chrome 3.0 won’t be supported as well.
Microsoft Internet Explorer lost yet another chunk of market share, and went down from 62.69% to 62.12% (0.57 point decrease).
For a third time in a row, Mozilla Firefox lost more market share, as it fell from 24.61% to 24.43% (0.18 point decrease).
Yet another huge gain for Chrome web browser; moving up, from 4.63% to 5.22%, making it a 0.59 point increase.
Slowly but surely, Safari increased its market share by 0.07 point, up from 4.46% to 4.53% Continue Reading

Here is one more tip/extension for Firefox users. With simple add-on “Hide GUI Bars” you can hide various GUI elements, such as: menu, navigation bar, tabs, bookmarks and statusbar using toggle keys (CTRL+Shift+A).
Ever accidentally pressed CTRL+Q or any other hot key, when you didn’t really need that? Fortunately, extension called “keyconfig” will help you on this.
Not only you can change and disable hotkeys for Firefox and Thunderbird, but also: Sunbird, Flock, ChatZilla on XULRunner, Prism, Songbird, McCoy, SeaMonkey 2.0, etc.
keyconfig adds the ability to create new or modify existing shortcuts defined by a element, but only changing those which itself call a function (those with a command or oncommand attribute) has an effect (all others fulfill only cosmetic purposes it seems and are grayed out).
After it’s installed, just hit Ctrl+Shift+F12 (Tools > Keyconfig), find CTRL+Q and click on “Disable” button. That’s it.
