Google Chrome Beta

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

Google ChromeI have to apologise for my delay in reporting the latest software release on this site. Now that I am back, I hope to write up more reports here. Google Chrome Beta is now released.

It is probably not a surprise to you when most of Google’s applications are labelled “beta“, but not for Google Chrome. Its stable version is at version 3.x, whereas this release is the next version of 4.x.

This new beta comes with many speed improvements. Google Chrome is becoming dynamic, with the ability to construct and change elements on web pages as fast as possible. Performance scores have improved by 30% since our current stable release, measured by Mozilla’s Dromeao DOM Core Tests!

Ubuntu 9.10 Now Released

Posted in Business Software, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

ubuntu-910For the long awaiting fans for Ubuntu, you must be pleased to know that Ubuntu 9.10 is now available live for your download.

The new operating system is much faster, smoother and more classic (beautiful). I’m already downloading this version to replace my current Linux operating system. The mention of its optimised boot-up speed and the use of ext4 journalising filesystems is just too tempting to refuse.

Whilst I am blogging on this, my other laptop is already in the process of installing Koala Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10). If you are using Linux, perhaps, this is the best time to switch.

Firstly, in terms of boot up, the performance has shown in some tests, that it took much shorter time. Thanks for the enhanced Upstart script written by Scott James Remnant.

With UbuntuOne integration, Ubuntu users can use the service as a storage server and share files with fellow Ubuntu users. 2GB of storage is given as a default. The service allows synchronisation of files, contacts and Tomboy notes across all Ubuntu computers and the Ubuntu Cloud.

Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99

Posted in Beta, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

I have just received notification to upgrade my Firefox browser to the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99. The code “b99″ sounds a little interesting, as this is probably the first time I have seen Mozilla come up with this codename.

This version is a preview of Firefox 3.5, the upcoming version of the Firefox web browser. It has not yet gone through a full set of quality assurance tests, and should not be considered as a release candidate. Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate is expected to be issued shortly. At that time users will be automatically upgraded to that version.
