A Look at Opera 10: Mail, News, RSS

Opera v. 10 was released this week for Windows, Linux, and just about every other operating system. Since a lot of persons have never tried it, I thought I’d take anyone who’s interested on a tour of it. This is not an unbiased review. I am a rabid Opera fanboy; I’ve been using it since v. 5 (I think) and gradually have gradually moved more and more of my Internet life to Opera. Nevertheless, I hope it is a realistic review.

MarketWatch reports that Microsoft is in trouble in Europe for Internet Explorer. Again. Or is that still? Read the full story here. Here’s an excerpt: It was a complaint from Opera that spurred the European Commission to issue an objection in January to Microsoft’s practice of tying its Internet Explorer browser to its dominant Windows operating system.

Microsearch Engines

Bloomberg quotes Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft’s efforts to become a player in internet searches. Read the full story here: “Google does have to be all things to all people,” Ballmer said yesterday in an interview in New York. “Our search does not need to be all things to all people.” Google may be tentative about changing the look of its search pages, causing the company to take fewer risks, said Ballmer, 52. The challenge is similar to what Microsoft faces with its Windows operating system, which needs to appeal to a broad range of customers, he said. I find...

File and Network Browsing in Debian Linux and Gnome

As a little explanation, I specify Gnome in the title because, with other Linux desktops, there can be other file managers. They all do pretty much the same thing, but they can look different. Fun Fact: Google runs on Linux. If you have never used Linux, I think you will find browsing your files and home network looks a lot like what you are used to. In a Linux interface, as in Windows, there can be several ways to start a program. To keep this simple, I will show only one. File Browsing with Nautilus: The Gnome file manager is...

IE, Mozilla, Safari or Opera

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (2.4MB) Podcast (quickcast): Play in new window | Download (Duration: 5:12 — 2.4MB) Web browsers are just as debated as Operating Systems and Political affiliations. The Web Browser is the program that allows you to browse the web, so you want the best experience possible. And Just like Operating Systems you can also choose the web browser that you use. So which one is it? IE or Firefox. Maybe Safari? Maybe even Opera?
