You've Got a Friend

Today, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, I started guest blogging at Wired Temples. My first post is about marking one year since Mozilla's Firefox was launced, with a Maltese perspective of sorts thrown in for good measure.

While I use Firefox on my Apple PowerBook, and plan to switch to Firefox on my office PC very soon, I still use Netscape on my old PC at home. I've used Netscape since it first appeared about this time ten years ago. Microsoft's IE did not exist back then. The only other graphic web browser was called Mosaic. And while I liked Mosaic (which was eventually acquired by Microsoft to develop IE) it was clear right away that Netscape was a superior web browser. Through very controversial practices, Microsoft's IE has come to dominate the browser market, but Firefox is thankfully gathering momentum as an alternative browser in ways that Netscape never could after it was taken over by AOL.

Anyway, I just wanted to post a little note here to let you know that I'm guest blogging at Wired Temples until Monday. I don't know whether I'll post anything else here this weekend. Perhaps I should just make sure that my contributions on WT are different than the sort of thing I'd post on my own blog. So, we'll see how it goes.

I'm glad Robert invited me to be the first guest blogger on WT because I haven't posted as a guest on anyone's blog before today and I want to see what it's like. I must say that it felt different writing about Firefox for WT this morning. I know that if I were writing on my personal blog rather than on WT I'd very probably have written in a slightly different tone.

Tomorrow I plan to post about something I wouldn't care to write about on my blog...but I think it's perfect for WT.

Firefox on Mac? I've heard some people complain about that, as the Mac versions seems to be a bit buggy at times.

I'm currently using version 1.0.7 for Mac and it's very stable. The annoying bugs in previous versions are gone.
