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!

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.

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.
Yes guys, that’s right! The largest human-edited web directory will have a major revamp within this year. I just discovered this a while ago after logging in my DMOZ editor account. I was surprised that I can edit anything because the page was blank. The dashboard is currently not available as of the moment, so this means they are finally upgrading the good old DMOZ.
This is what I can see after clicking the Login link in dmoz.org as of now:
DMOZ 2.0 is almost here!
From August 16 through 19 2010, all editorial functions as well as public submissions and requests for DMOZ will be offline while we get ready to launch some behind the scenes improvements to DMOZ. Meanwhile, visit the DMOZ Editor Forums to discuss DMOZ 2.0 or other editing issues
I’m so excited to see what are the new features of DMOZ 2.0 and I honestly can’t wait to witness the changes that will be made.
I googled DMOZ 2.0 and found out that this 2.0 thing was rumored a long time ago and one blog even said that it will be launched by March 2010.
I didn’t know about this news if I never logged in today. I was just surprised because a lot already blogged about DMOZ 2.0 before and until now, August 2010, there are still no changes.
As far as I can remember, I logged in last month and the dashboard is still there. Maybe this time, the major revamp will finally occur. I don’t know for sure when really is the exact date for DMOZ 2.0 launch, but I know it will be as early as this month or next month.
Let’s just wait for the official launch of DMOZ 2.0! I bet everyone is excited to see the changes, that includes me!
After upgrading to WordPress 3.0, here comes WordPress 3.0.1, so I updated my WordPress again. I only used WordPress 3.0 for a few days. Wow, WordPress is upgrading so fast!
I bet there’s another update next week, or perhaps, next month. Good thing that upgrading your WordPress blog is as easy as one click!
Just click the Upgrade now, then you’re done! No need to download the .ZIP file from WordPress.org, no need to open your FTP, no need to do some “geek” stuff. Even if you’re a geek, newbie, or an average joe, you can upgrade your WP if you know how to click!
I know.. I know.. I’m pretty late in upgrading my blog. I almost inactive in my online life now. Anyway, I’m back using the default WordPress theme. And oh, WordPress 3.0 is awesome! I love the enhanced admin interface, but there are some things that I miss in the previous WordPress version.
Hmmm… What are those things? I really can’t specify it one by one, but there’s something lacks in this new version.
Something that I really want… Hmmmmm…
