I’ve been using a new Firefox extension called Tree Style Tabs. It’s great for widescreens because it takes all your tabs from the top of your browser and places it along the right or left side, saving a lot of vertical screen space. It took a little time to get used to.Â Once in a while, I still find myself moving the mouse to the top to switch tabs, but it’s definitely growing on me!

Joey: internet explorer is the stupidest browser ever madde
Joey: there’s so much stuff that works on other browsers but not IE
me: johnny doesnt think so
Joey: and now there’s little button that works on IE 6 but not IE 7
me: neither does my friend hsin
Joey: what the heck
Joey: yea that’s stupid enough already
Joey: but how can smth work for IE 6
Joey: but not IE 7
Joey: that’s just ridiculous
me: tell that to johnny
Johnny: That’s because IE7 is superb when using for work and Os related uses.Â All the other browsers have problems when downloading drivers and updates.
What do you think? Anyone out there trying the new IE8 beta?
Ok, so maybe it’s not THAT new, but it’s new to me because I haven’t played with Flock since version 0.0001 beta. Apparently, I got Joey hooked on Digsby. Not sure why he likes it so much. Now I have another thing to introduce to him.
Joey, meet Flock: the social web browser.
Not sure why I decided to have another looksy, but I’m glad I did. Essentially, it’s a tricked out version of Firefox that gives you quick access to most of your social networks like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, webmail, Picasa, you name it, it’s there.
There’s an integrated RSS reader and blog publisher too (although I don’t like to use it because I can’t, or haven’t figured out how to, upload images onto my server with that tool).
Many of the Firefox extensions seem to work, which is the only reason why I’m willing to give it a test drive.
Is anyone else using it or giving it a go?
So this site is once again what they call fluid. All the columns should be pretty flexible now, and adjusts to the size of the browser window, up until a width of about 980 pixels. So it’s a little bit fixed and a little bit liquid. I should rest my eyes now. But before then, I’ll leave with a couple of neat ‘net nuggets’ I found.
One of my friends in China really liked a poem that someone made into a website.
My A’s have made it into the playoffs. Hopefully they won’t lose in the first round like they always do.
