Well time to blog here and there. I have decided to actually repost my review on Firefox 4 Beta. I do alot of beta testing for companies, and they like the critiques and reviews.

I have done many reviews with companies such as Microsoft, Google, Apple, Mozilla, the list goes on.

I even was part of an initial development and beta team for Windows 7 and I am working on getting into the Windows 8 team.

Uh, So I will rant about my stuff, and just post random things.

Firefox 4. Pretty awesome I must say......but as with all betas, they can be a little buggy, but I love the new feel for this Firefox. Even though that this a beta, pages load alot faster, and is way more secure. They have even implemented a feature called Sync that is now built into the browser itself. Not to mention the ability to group your tabs based on what sites/etc.
Now with Synch, whenever I use Firefox on my Droid, Laptop or Even my Desktop, all of my bookmarks, pages, logins, are transferred and synced with one another. When you find a site on the go in your phone if you bookmark the page, it shows up on your desktop. I found the feature to be awesome. Now you might be skeptical of this feature, but infact the sync feature uses top level security algorithms and cryptology methods to make sure that your passwords and other information is safe.
Now with any new browser that is released you must watch out for vulnerability. Upon my initial view of the code and program, things seemed to be relatively secured if not many loopholes and vulnerabilities fixed. I still recommend addons for firefox to help secure it like BEEFTACO (Cookie Blocker); HTTPSEVERYWHERE (Secure encrypted connects for available sites) KEYSCRAMBLER (Protects your login info and typed passwords with various types of scrambling and protection)
I have been using this for a while, and I see much promise in this. It has its bugs such as Youtube videos playing weirdly, but that is because Adobe does not fully support Firefox 4 yet..... I find all the features in Firefox 4 create a friendly user interface, and make it much easier to use.
Pros:
1: User interface is awesome, and is more user friendly
2:More Secured
3:Eye Candy, and bonus apps
Cons:
1:Initial bugs
2:Getting used to the NEW interface, but easily adaptable.

Other then that I got a cool music composition program, so I'll keep myself busy for a bit.

So this week has been pretty weird lol. It is funny to see how people think I am hurt by things that they say, instead they decide to go silent thinking I am offended. Oh well.....

-shrugs- I am a very easy going guy, I tend to be very open, and give 2 craps about what other people do. I make great friends with everyone, and everyone seems to understand how I am.

I'm the type of guy who can take a hit and keep on ticking.... I have taken hits all my life, my life couldn't possible have been any worse, but you know what I say, Frak it. That is the past, I only worry about now, and the Future.

One of my favorite sayings. "Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, And I know that only this moment is mine."

Probably one of the most impressive people that I have ever had the chance to seen, or watch his video of is Randy Pausch. A Man with terminal cancer lived every day of his life to his fullest. I highly recommend that you read this..... Trust me.......

Anyways I will be hanging out with my best friends, and might be on and off this site. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend, and a fun one at that. Definitely getting away from my college for a bit :animesweat:

I apologize Fox...

I know how you are, it is just my fears of screwing up that friendship. You are a great friend, and I would hate to do anything to screw it up, that is why I folded back...and I was wrong for doing so...
