I am using Mozilla Firefox 2 and i was not aware of that Mozilla Firefox 3[Download] has been released. Just now came to know the fact that it created a Guinness World Record of maximum no of downloads in a single day. Mozilla Firefox 3 was officially released on June 17, 2008 and it has 8 million hits on the first day of its release itself and it is named as “Download Day 2008”. Mozilla 3 has 12 million hits till today. This popularity is enough to tell its use. In the cold war between IE and Mozilla Firefox,it is undoubtedly Firefox is one which is going to be honoured as the best and also as per the Google Statistics. The reasons are: The download time of Mozilla is in 1 or 2minutes but for IE it takes 20 to 25 minutes and it asks to close all windows and need a reboot i think so. Next the plugins are free in Mozilla but IE sucks because we need to buy those plugins. Its always the problem with Bill Gates we have to pay him for everything. Mozilla is more sustainable to security threats and phishing attacks but IE allows a lot of popups and ads. With the power of Firefox 3 you can be able to do anything through the plugins while you are browsing the net.

If your are an IE user, I recommend you to change to Mozilla without any hesitation.

Living in an imaginary World is not so far when you have Google who are creating a Virtual World for you. I recently noticed many cities are made up in 3D view which was not there a 6 months ago. Google first acquired the virtual globe program from the Keyhole Inc. in 2004 which formerly now known as “Google Earth”. Google Earth works in Keyhole Markup language the one in which it was formerly developed. Actually the 2D images of the earth are the pictures captured by the satellites launched by NASA. Later in 2007, out of Google’s Interest they used Sketchup, a 3-D modelling program to construct 3D buildings and structures. They added added a new feature called Google Sky and they are nothing but the telescopic pictures provided by the Space Institute at Baltimore. In June 2008,they completed the Disneyland in the 3D view and it is incorporated in the Google Earth 4.2. In Google Earth 4.3[Download],they launched with integrated Street View which provides 360° panoramic street-level views and allows users to view parts of selected cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas at ground level.

I have seen this word before but i havn’t known the real meaning of the word “LOL”[Wiki]. Once i went to Aamir Khan‘s chatroom and there i found some guys waiting for aamir khan to come online. Aamir Khan usually comes online between 2 to 4 A.M. and after that he sleeps for 4 hours and starts his workout in the morning at 8 A.M. In the meantime in the chatroom, there was a debate about Indian Cricket Management between them due to the IPL fever. There i found a lot of these words. When i searched Wiki I found that its abbreviation is “laughing out loud” or “laugh out loud” and it is used to express the bodily reactions through the Internet. In the search for lol, I found three more Internet slangs “ROFTL”, “BWL” and “BFN”. The word “ROFTL” means “roll(ing) on the floor laughing” while the word “BWL” means “bursting with laughter” and “BFN” means “bye for now”.

It is not true that Aamir Khan always sleeps at 4 A.M. He might change his work schedule.

“aXXo” brands DvdRips October 8, 2006

If you are a frequent Internet user and you search about movies downloads, then you might have come across the the term aXXo.”What is aXXo ?” or “Who is aXXo?” are questions that might be laid in your brains. aXXo is a mysterious person who converts the Dvds into a 700MB file and upload it in the Internet for P2P torrent users to download them free. His Dvdrip torrents are guaranteed that they are ripped to the highest quality possible in dvdrips with pixelating the picture. His torrents are uploaded in the top torrent sites like mininova, torrentspy and isohunt and millions of people downloads his Dvdrips every month. According to New York Times, two suspects have been known to be aXXo by the US police department and his identity is not revealed till today.In one interview he describes himself a male and when he was asked about the copyright laws aXXo replies

“Thank God in this country we don’t believe in copyright infringement. It’s just sharing entertainment, nothing more.”

Due to the popularity of aXXo, many people take advantage to install malwares and trojans on the victim’s system. These fake files may be of RAR files which requires to download a trojan virus and ultimately slows down to your system. In most of the RAR files the archive might be broken,so i recommend to download only a 700MB single file. FxG is also brand name for Dvdrips like aXXo. Anyway for English movies it is always recommended to download only after 1 or 2 months as it might take sometime to release the dvds, rip them and upload it. For Hindi movies, I recommend BrG that might be a single 700MB or 2x700MB or 1.36GB. You can download the PreDvdrips in BMB which might be of viewable quality but not as worse as CAM rip quality. All these I am saying because I am a 24×7 P2P downloader.

Reasons for WordPress October 8, 2006

I was in search of a nice name for my blog and named it as “Blog Paradise”. Then i had a little confusion from which blogging site I have to start with. Finally after some comparisons I started to blog with wordpress. Till the mid 2006, blogger.com topped the competition and after that it was all wordpress.com according to Google Statistics. But i am not saying blogger.com is worse yet it is the best one for business strategy people and for those who wants to mint some money through ads. Only problem in wordpress is that we have to pay for somethings but overall it is good. We cant add custom themes as blogger and they provide a 60+ themes to blog with. The visitor stats are provided by the wordpress itself yet we dont need to add a javascript. Another important issue is that you can inport blogs from your other blogs whether they are in blogger, typepad, movabletype and livejournal. For adding galleries we have to a use picasso in blogger but here simply we have to add a tag to any post. In wordpress we can add static pages as in websites and separate your content according to your choice. The comments in blogger and be viewed or deleted while in wordpress the comment will first reach us the author and he has to decide approve or not. The wordpress has Akismet spam protection and this avoids spams but a blogger doesnt.

For personal use blog i recommend wordpress while a blogger is for commercial use. Finally i give the rating for the wordpress as one point ahead of blogger.
