IE9 beta is now available for test drive!


The latest version of the world known Internet Browser that sucks after Firefox and Chrome dominated the world wide web has attempted to take back its place in the browser war. I recently downloaded IE9 beta 64-bit for Windows 7 and I can say that it has a potential to be loved by web enthusiasts, again.

What’s new with Internet Explorer 9? You can read more about it here.

IE9 beta is only available for Windows 7 and Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit editions. And I don’t think that they will release it in other older versions of Windows.

It’s now faster, better, lighter and smarter! Try it now and brag to be one of the first to experience the beauty of the web!

It’s September

Yes guys! It’s now September. I don’t know what to blog right now. I’m just happy that it’s September. Then after September, it will be October, then November, then December. After a few months, I’ll be having another summer vacation and I will be in my 3rd year in high school after that 2-month vacation.

I’ll be sharing more cool stuff about gadgets, social media and the web if I can think of something to write.

Top 288,945 sites in the world visualized with favicons

Others are saying that the top 300,000 websites in the world are visualized with favicons. But why my title is 288,945? Because I want to be specific, and there are only 288,945 favicons in this poster.

A large-scale scan of the top million web sites was performed in early 2010 by computer David Fifield and Brandon Enright who are bored one day and suddenly had an idea about collecting the favicons of top 1,000,000 websites around the world in a single poster. But these nerds failed to visualize all the top 1 million websites. Only 328,427 unique icons were collected, of which 288,945 were proper images.

Audi O: Coolest Concept Car I’ve Ever Seen!

Excited to buy a white Playstation 3 slim 320GB

After I’ve heard from my classmates that there’s a white PS3 Slim with a whooping 320GB of juicy storage, I’m enticed to buy one for my birthday this October. I can’t wait for it to be available at eBay so that I can buy it now!

The white Playstation 3 slim was first released in Japan last month. The first one wasn’t 320GB yet. But, there’s a news that a white version with 320GB hard disk drive will be released in the United States by next month.

DMOZ 2.0 is finally here! New Editor Dashboard is up!

Wow! DMOZ 2.0 is finally launched and I can access my Editor Dashboard now. I’m still familiarizing the new layout because I’m used to play around with the old one. Nothing’s really new in DMOZ 2.0, only the user interface. The fonts are now all in Arial, and the dashboard is now neat and more Web 2.0ish.

Everything is still the same, only the CSS was revised. There are new fields in the editor profile, like the ICQ and AIM fields. I didn’t notice this in the older version of DMOZ. Maybe it’s there, but I didn’t see it.

I think more changes will be applied in the days to come. As of now, just like what I said, there are no new features.
