Beyond Google Chrome

latif latif writes  |  more than 2 years ago

latif writes "Google Chrome's user interface is fairly minimal to what came before, but there is room for improvement. In fact, there is enough room for improvement that we can add an order of magnitude more functionality with better usability in the same space as Google Chrome's Omnibox. The key to better usability is a new user interface widget that covers a large gamut of browser features. The new widget gives a uniform interface to bookmarks, web history, web search and even the address bar."

Firefox 4 startup twice as slow as Firefox 3.6

latif latif writes  |  more than 3 years ago

latif (22950) writes "Firefox users have complained for ages about Firefox startup speed. Many have even
moved on to Google Chrome because of the issue. Unfortunately, the problem is not registering with the folks at Mozilla. Instead of taking serious steps to resolve the issue, someone at Mozilla brushed off the issue as a perception problem that needs to be resolved via user-interface tweaks.

The Firefox startup performance issue has finally blown up. In browser performance benchmarks conducted by Gizmodo,
Firefox 4 Beta 7 came dead last in browser startup speed. It was taking upwards of 20 seconds on cold startups which is nearly twice as slow as Firefox 3.6. Is this the end of Firefox?"

Why Microsoft is chasing Yahoo

latif latif writes  |  more than 6 years ago

latif writes "Microsoft has been chasing Yahoo for quite a while now. Most people think that it all started with Microsoft's acquisition bid for Yahoo, but this is not so. It is well-known that Microsoft and Yahoo have been negotiating since at least May of 2006, and may have been negotiating since 2003. I have done a thorough analysis utilizing information made public over the past five years and my analysis suggests that most people are completely wrong about what Microsoft wants from Yahoo."
