After experiencing so many crashes with the past two versions (26 and 27) of Google Chrome, I decided to uninstall it completely from my main computer. The isolated crashes feature stopped working and with each new update of Adobe Flash, the crashes became even more frequent. I watch a lot of streaming video via Flash Player. Only used two add ons from the Chrome App store.
I’m actually typing this up from Opera Browser.
Google has released a new major version of the Google Chrome web Browser. It has been out for a week now.
- Improvements in managing and securing your extensions
- Better support for HTML5 time/date inputs
- Better WebGL error handling
- And lots of other features for developers
Mozilla released the latest stable version of Mozilla Firefox
One new feature that was added is the “Most visited sites” page. Firefox has now joined Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer by adding this feature
This Toolbar can be found at the bottom of the browser window, whenever you load your Firefox home page. Access, Downloads, Bookmarks, settings and restoring your previous browsing session.
. You can read the rest of the release notes here.
Use: Text/ Source Code Editor
Platform: Microsoft Windows
Current Version: 6.1.2
A text editor like the built-in Microsoft Windows but with a few enhancements…
Tabs: As seen in the screenshot above, You can have more than one text (.txt) file open organized in a single application Window just like modern web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE etc.) Notepad++ can also remember what tabs/documents you had open (Sessions) when you close the main window. Documents tabs will usually appear blue. Red means that there is unsaved data in the document and grey means that the document was set into “Read-only” mode.
User Interface Languages: This application supports a great many languages from around the world.
Programming Languages: Recognizes CSS, HTML, XML, PHP, Java Script, C++, Python, Ruby and others. Notepad++ also saves to the proper output files as well.
The application only uses up 14 MBs of storage space and around for 12 MBs of RAM while I had the three text document tabs open for the screenshot.
Google has released a new version of their Web Browser. Get the new version via the about Google Chrome dialog box in an existing install or from the website.
Aside from security fixes it supposedly includes an updated version of Adobe Flash Player. The browser has been a little too “crash happy” for me these last few days. Hopefully this new version will fix or lessen it.
