If anyone pays attention to my sidebar on this blog, you might notice that my link to firefox is gone and is now replaced with an Opera button. This is for good reason.
Since the release of Firefox 2, it seems that the browser has become a lot more unstable and even more resource intensive. On a technical note, I think a lot of this has to do with the way firefox is interacting with flash. Either way, it just isn't a pleasant experience on either my Mac or any Windows machine I use. I had been using Opera Mini on my cell phone for a while and had been REALLY impressed with it so I figured I'd give the regular Opera browser a shot and I am really glad that I did. It really seems that I'm not alone either. I'd suggest giving it a shot and let me know if it works for you and how you like it. It's definately built with more security in mind and it's a lot easier to maintain.
Innovation delivered

If you have a smart phone, give Opera Mini a shot as well.

Why on God's green earth is it "cool" to have autostart music on your webpage. I don't care if you're a band or not... putting music on your site is an excellent idea but for the love of everything good, PLEASE make it so you have to click a button first.

Oh.. and a message to the jerks who are now making flash ads that have sound - you won't see me buying anything from you anytime soon. Actually, when an ad starts making crazy sounds the first thing I click is my "go home" button to get away from that page and shut the speakers up as quickly as possible...
