The Day I Left Firefox Behind

In the early times of the Information Age, web junkies like myself did not have many web browsing options. Internet Explorer had been absolutely terrible for essentially its entire existence, but early versions of Netscape Navigator and Netscape Communicator left much to be desired.

A Quick Look at the New Firefox Mobile (Beta) for Android

Back in May, I looked at a pre-alpha build of Firefox Mobile for Android. Being a pre-alpha product, it had its shortcomings. It was slow and buggy, yet showed tremendous potential to shake up the Android browser market. Last week, Firefox Mobile officially entered its beta stage, bringing along with it tons of improvements and […]

Make Gmail into a Carnival with 0Boxer, Earn Rewards for Being Productive

Time to face hard facts: Checking your Gmail inbox is not the most enjoyable thing you do during the day.  To be honest, it can be quite boring, really.  Reading, replying, trashing, and repeat; it never ends.  Even using Priority Inbox doesn’t solve the mediocrity email sorting creates. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually get […]
