Get sparky

Get sparky to monitor the websites. the trend, how people surf each site, which page is more popular & to which page people go often once they visit a particular site. It’s fun to know which websites are top performing and has highest traffic/most popular in the country.(want a data for most popular websites in India? )
How you  can use the data from Alexa toolbar?: to analyse the web. Simple. For instance you’d be surprised to see Maps.Google.Com isn’t in top 10 places people go to Google!! Although it’s very very popular product (at least in US!)
So, download the toolbar & enjoy it’s features. It’s available for Mozilla Firefox as well as for MS Internet Explorer.
Alexa Toolbar (sparky) is perhaps the first toolbar available for IE must be since pre-Y2K era!! not sure though…

Opera face gesture, I want to believe this

Although Opera lags behind the internet browser’s market share race, I must agree when it comes to speed & page loading it’s the best browser.
I had been using it for 2/3 years; until firefox 1.5 released. Opera’s click gesture was one of the most innovative new feature among the browsers back then… & Now we see this video.
I seriously want to believe this video. But well, Happy april fools day everyone 😉

DataFox updates

I wanted to make a post exclusively for this firefox addon called datafox. I was looking for the reason…
It’s very critical addon & comes very handy to monitor your bandwidth usage. It’s my most favourite add-on of firefox.
This applies to all BSNL’s & MTNL’s broadband subscribers. I know there are hell lot of you out there who use BSNL’s DataOne or MTNL’s triband.
It’s new version update 1.7 hence the post. If you dont have this addon  grab it now from the official site.
Note that this is a firefox addon & you need to use Firefox browser to leverage this monitoring tool.
(You can download the firefox by clicking on the its image on the right sidebar.)

Upgrade to Firefox 3

Last year I made a post promoting Internet Explorer 7. But I personally do not use MS ie7. Yes, it was recommended to those who still using old ie 6. Although there’re some features I like about internet explorer. They are not strong enough to stick me to MS IE. & during my Linux phases I had to use Firefox. It’s not a compromise actually, I prefer Mozilla firefox browser over any other internet browser. I had used Microsoft internet explorer 6, 7 & beta 8. (might add review of beta 8..) but I always liked Firefox. I love the browser so much that I in fact joined some groups and communities to spread the firefox. Yeah, can you see the firefox’s logo on the sidebar, which says upgrade to 3.0? yes they’ve provided it ;). And to my surprise, if I become one of the top referrer & selected from lucky draw, I’d get a firefox t-shirt!! This is fun!! 🙂 All you have to do is click on the button, download, install & use firefox. Of course you should use it if you like it. Choice is all yours.

Firefox is a cross platform (can be run on any system Windows, Mac or Linux ) internet browser. If you’re better than a newbie at computer operating or internet surfing, I hightly recommend you to have Mozilla Firefox. Well, if you’re not newbie or less than a average user, chances are you’re already using FIrefox. (so let me rephrase it) & if you’re wanna be an efficient net surfer I recommend using Firefox.

Multiple tabs & customised search engine are common options that come in browsers these days.

Some advantages of firefox are: it’s highly customizable. You can play with it add almost any feature you want. There are thousands of coders, developers / programmers out there who make plugins & addons just for you; which helps make efficient browsing. Take for instance I’ve installed a add-on called fireone which monitors my broadband internet usage. & warns me if I’m crossing (or reached near to) my bandwidth limit. It comes handy & I don’t have to log in to BSNL site time to time just to see the status.

That’s just one example; I might some time in future, post a list of add-ons I’ve added in firefox browser. & it’s a great advantage Firefox has got over all other internet browsers. There’re many other advantages like: I heard browsing is more secure & difficult hack. But the things that I don’t understand I don’t comment on. Anyways if the experts are commenting that it’s a secure browser, it has to be; as we seen some fatal issues with Microsoft’s internet explorer lately, I again highly recommend to switch or as they say “upgrade”.
