Recently I have mentioned that my Mac is unusually busy, even when I am not compiling code, but just browsing of Internet or files. Running Activity Monitor - it was showing Finder on top, almost all the time consuming 100% of CPU. Event with 2 cores - Mac was struggling with some simple tasks. I thought at this moment - I cannot believe I will have the same stupid stuff like on Windows, when there is some missing Network Resources.
If you are working for large international company, or just participate in projects that are executed by teams/people in different locations - it is likely that you have to work with WebEx. It runs quite soothly on Windows XP/Vista/7 under Firefox, Internet Explorer. But when you go to Mac - suddenly you stick with the message “One moment please” And this is the last and only thing that you see on you browser.
This is post for Mac fans - everyone else should leave know. I used to love dark themes when working in Linux desktop. Even on Windows I used to set a dark theme, so that it doesn't bother my eyes. Something that I love for Gnome and Kde desktops is customization - you can make your UI look the way you want, the way you like it. Most of the time, I used to set my Linux desktop to look like Mac :-P, but this is something else to be discussed.
I used to have at home a network, based on Linksys WRT54G router - classical model, that served me already 2-3 years (I even don't remember when I got it). It bothered me for a long time, that when trying to browse with iPad in one of the rooms - I used to loose network signal, or it was so fuzzy so that the pages did not load. At last I made a test and realized that the bottleneck in my network is the wireless rooter - it was even limiting my Internet speed in it's best performance.
I have been very impressed by the speed that new Firefox 3.5 delivers. If you like this browser - I promise you - you will like it more. I enjoy Google Chrome and Firefox experience - today Firefox got my compliments! Enjoy Download Firefox 3.5
