Firefox 7.0 Review

Firefox Download ButtonThe new version Firefox 7.0 was released on September 27, 2011. This new version and release is part of Mozilla's rapid releases which started in March 2011.

Overall, there have been improvements and several thousand bug fixes since Mozilla started their rapid releases. This new version Firefox 7.0 boasts drastic improvements in terms of memory usage thereby providing speedier web browsing.

I've been using the new version Firefox 7.0 for a couple of weeks and have conducted some performance benchmark tests on Firefox 7.0 as well as Google Chrome.

Based on the tests, Firefox 7.0 performs better than its predecessor versions, however, it's still not comparable to Google Chrome's overall performance. The results of the peacekeeper tests are listed below. Please note that these benchmark performance test results will vary depending on various factors.

Steve Jobs Lives On

The news about Steve Jobs passing away, on October 5, 2011, flooded the media waves all over the world. He truly was one of a kind visionary, entrepreneur and creative genius considered as the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford of our time.

Steve Jobs who battled pancreatic cancer, announced his resignation in late August 2011, as CEO of Apple Inc. He was only 56, but made a significant difference to all around him including his dedicated and loyal Apple fans.

Mr. Jobs received many awards and honors for his many accomplishments and contributions. But he will be remembered for his life filled with values, character, innovation and leadership. I’ve come across many quotes from Steve Jobs, but one that stands out to me is…”Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life”. There is much to learn from what this iCon has left us with.

Steve Jobs may have left us behind, but he lives on and will be remembered for a very long time. May Steve Jobs rest in peace and may his family and loved ones find the strength to bear his loss. Salute to an iCon!
