Tabs and Giants

Hi everyone.  Its been a couple of days, and I’ve been meaning to post this:  IE7 Beta 2.  I was pretty excited to see this.  I know its not really all that new as far as the world is concerned, but its new to me and maybe anybody else reading this.  It features tabbed browsing, rss feeds, more viewing area, etc.  It will only be available on Vista, but the beta will work for XP right now.

Also, I posted a semi-permanent link to They Might Be Giants Podcasts.  30 minutes of so of new music by TMBG for your listening pleasure.  They’ve got a goal to reach 1 million subscribers (they currently have over half-million), so lets help out the cause, eh? 

That’s it for now, but I might come up with something good before the weekend hits.

FireFox Myths

I was working a little today in the admin section managing this blog, and I noticed a link to browsehappy.com.  It is a site that tries to influence people to stop using Internet Explorer and switch to any of 4 different browsers (FireFox being at the top of the list).  I read on, and they feel that Internet Explorer (IE) is 1. Unsafe and 2. Not as efficient.

I’ve used FireFox, and I don’t agree with them, but I wanted something substantial to validate my opinion.  Enter FireFox Myths, a site that debunks a lot of the fanhype that surrounds this browser.  It also shows that IE really isn’t all that bad and isn’t lacking in anything FireFox has.  I feel so strongly about it, I’ve put up a semi-permanent link on the sidebar. 

Quotes and Mars

This is just to inform everyone that I added a “Quotes” page (under “Pages” on the right) where Jessica and I will be putting any cool quotes we run across.  I’m hoping that over time, you’ll be able to read through them and get a good feeling for who we are and how we feel about things. 

On a different note, check out http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov for an interesting look at the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a new research vessel that will give us an unparalleled look at Mars’ water history, terrain, mineral traces, etc.
