Browser Sugar Cookies

I made some cookies for my team at work; browser cookies. It didn’t quite go as planned as I made the frosting a little too thin. It helped some, but it also hurt some. Plus my frosting design skills are not that great. I did figure out that using a toothpick allowed me to easily push […]

The fastest browser on my Mac is Firefox 5.

I tested four browsers with the SunSpider tests and it turns out that Firefox 5 was faster than Chrome, Safari and Opera. This was quite surprising to me as it beat out Chrome but quite a bit. It’s also interesting how far behind Safari is. Opera 10.5 – 534.0ms +/- 1.4% Chrome 12 – 524.6ms […]

Use Google Chrome’s Private Browsing To Login To Multiple Accounts

If you’re like me and you need to access multiple accounts on the same service, like different Gmail or Twitter accounts, on a daily basis, logging in and out gets to be a pain. You could always just open up a different browser, but that’s annoying too. Google Chrome however has a good work around as you […]

Fix Your Fonts, Fix Your Browser Problems

For a few weeks I’ve been having strange issues with browsers on my Mac. Firefox couldn’t render Arial properly, Flock had issues rendering fonts in search results, Opera was down right unusable and Camino had issues with Gmail fonts. Safari was just fine however. I tried to Google the answer but got nothing. I thought […]

Welcome IE7 & Firefox 2

This week not one, but two big browsers made major upgrades. I’ve gotten a change to play with both and I think everyone is on the right track, some just a wee bit behind. IE7 has been a long time coming. I think they said IE6 was released 5 years ago or so? Anyways, the […]

Now 14.7% More IE Friendly

Blog on a stick is now 14.7% friendlier to our IE visitors. I removed a script that allowed IE to actually render transparent PNG’s with transparent backgrounds. It seemed to be slowing down the blog for those users and I didn’t like that. So it’s gone. Instead, you get to see an ugly background on […]

Browsing with Opera 9 Beta

I’ve recently started checking out Opera 9 Beta I’m not sure why I stumbled across it but I have to say, it’s quite a nice browser. Now I’m a Firefox guy and there are to many good features to pass up, but Opera is pretty slick too. They’ve added support for WYSIWYG editors like those […]

AllTheWeb does LiveSearch

AllTheWeb, a Yahoo search engine, is now testing live search. Take a little of Google Suggest, some Ajax and of course good search results, mix them together and get LiveSearch. It gives you suggestions and results as you type. Pretty cool and fun to play with. On the down side, no Safari or Opera support […]
