View Facebook Notifications Without Visiting Facebook

Here is a fun Speed Dial Extension for the Opera web browser: Facebook Preview.

Basically, it allows you to view Facebook notifications without opening the page. However, it still requires uses to use the “Keep me logged in” option.

Offering three different display modes to choose from, it will surely attract some of the social network addicts.

Give it a try.

Web Browsers IQ Study Is A Hoax

IE users rejoice.

Earlier this week, we reported about the recent study which claims that IE users tend to have a lower IQ when compared to other web browser users. Turns out, it was a hoax all along.

According to BBC, the web site that published results was set up just weeks before official announcement and used staff images copied from Central Test, a French company specializing in research.

If You Use IE6, Chances Are, You Are Not An Einstein

Science agrees: geeks use other web browsers.

By collecting data from more than 100,000 users, a research firm has revealed that the majority of Internet Explorer users tend to have a lower IQ than Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera or Camino users. No one cares about the EQ anyway.

However, if you use the Internet Explorer with Google Chrome frame, there is a hope for you too.
