    Opera Mini Clone – TeaShark

    By | October 23, 2007

    When you see something new in the web browsers world it always excites you, right? Not this time. TeaShark (alpha) is a mobile web browser and as they say “TeaShark is a new way to use the web when mobile.” It might sound good but it isn’t, it’s a clone. Just take a look at this demonstration.

    TeaShark

    TeaShark offers few new features although, it’s a smart address entry.

    TeaShark Smart Entry

    The engine remembers common patterns – popular sites, URLs – and the addresses you have visited*, incrementally filling the address bar as you type.

    Find text on the page, del.icio.us bookmarks import, RSS reader and… Ad blocking (sounds cool).

    Now I am not sure if they’ve just got some leaked Opera Mini 4 Pre-Beta 3 source or did that on their own, will see I guess…

    Is Your Opera “Crashing” A Lot?

    By | October 18, 2007 | 63 Comments

    Opera Crashing ClosingWhen I say “Crashing” I mean that it just closes without any errors or notifications. Do you experience this very often and blame Opera for some kind of “bug” which causes it to crash all the time?

    In fact, one of the reasons why Opera just closing could be lack of the free HDD space. If you have only like 50 MB of free space or even less you’ve just found a reason for that.

    Solution? It’s time to clean your hard drive.

    Netscape Navigator 9 Final Released

    By | October 16, 2007 | 2 Comments

    Netscape Navigator 9 FinalIt’s finally here. Netscape team just released Netscape Navigator 9. There’s been a lot of changes since the previous final release, but before that let’s check changes since Netscape Navigator 9 RC1.

  • Added security measures when installing extensions from the sidebar browser
  • Fixed error that was displayed after updating (with auto-update) from 9.0b3 to 9.0RC1
  • What’s New in Netscape Navigator 9?

    Visual Refresh
    Netscape Navigator 9′s theme has been updated to save screen-space and leave more room for the websites you visit.

    URL Correction
    Navigator 9 will automatically correct common typos in URLs. For example, if you accidentally type googlecom, Navigator will fix it be to google.com. The browser will watch for nearly 30 different types of common mistakes and correct them for you (asking you to confirm, if you choose to enable confirmation).

    Link Pad
    The Link Pad is a new sidebar feature that allows you to save links/URLs that you want to visit later without cluttering your bookmarks. Just drag a link over the Link Pad status bar icon and drop it to save it in the Link Pad. By default, clicking on an item in the Link Pad will open it in the browser and remove it from the list, saving you the step of deleting it.

    Extension Compatibility
    Navigator 9 shares an architecture with the latest Mozilla technologies; as such, Navigator 9 will let you install extensions that are compatible with Firefox ® 2.

    Sidebar Mini Browser
    You’ve always been able to have bookmarks open in the sidebar, but we’ve improved this functionality and extended it to all links, not just bookmarks. Additionally, we’ve added a navigation toolbar to the sidebar for even easier split-screened browsing. Just right-click on a link and select “Open Link in Sidebar” to get started!

    Restart Netcape
    A smalll but oft-requested feature: you can now restart Navigator (and keep your current tabs intact) by selecting “Restart Navigator” from the File menu.

    Resizeable Textarea
    Drag the bottom-right corners of text fields in forms to add more typing space.

    Tab History
    Opening a link in a new tab will give the new tab the same history as the source tab for a more seamless tabbed browsing experience.

    OPML Support
    Netscape Navigator supports importing and exporting your bookmarks in OPML, a popular format for sharing lists of newsfeeds.

    Throbber
    By popular demand, the Netscape 7-style throbber is back. Click on it any time to visit Netscape.com.

    Combined Stop/Reload button
    To save space in your toolbar, we’ve combined the stop and reload buttons. Because you never need both at the same time, the toolbar will only show the relevant half of the pair.

    Since Navigator 9 is based on the newest Mozilla ® technologies, there are additional features in Navigator 9 that were not available in Netscape Browser 8.x. You can read about those new features in these release notes from Mozilla.

    Enjoy the final release from Netscape team.
