Those who have played through San Andreas (Grand Theft Auto) back in the days (as in 2004) should really NOT miss this 20 minute prologue video (not HD, only 360p) released by Rockstar: http://youtu.be/daw8xhaGj2s
I totally agree with Vinton Cerf that Internet access is NOT a human right, not only because it’s more of an enabler, tool or technology (a means to an end), but more importantly because if we set our standards this low to include things like hybrid cars and mineral water (instead of freedom to travel and clean water), human rights will no longer be universal and our high ground more difficult to hold, leaving “freedom fighters” with an impossible mission to accomplish.
The latest browser war verdicts are in. #Chrome (by #Google) (25.69%) overtakes #Firefox (25.23%) and closing in on Internet Explorer (40.63%) in November 2011, according to gs.statcounter.
This brings back some fond memories, when my once beloved Netscape Navigator fell from heaven to hell in just a few years by Y2K, and I reluctantly started tailoring websites for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (even though they did not comply with web standards and were full of holes, at least back then). Not sure if I should be glad or what, but history does repeat itself, and this time around, we witness IE’s market share shrinking noticeably (from 48.16% a year ago) while Chrome almost doubles up (from 13.35%) and Firefox losing its fire (fell from 31.17%).
But unlike 10 years ago, most browsers these days (or at least their up-to-date versions, unless you are still using IE6) are relatively standards-compliant, and web designers know very well how to make their products cross-browser safe and compatible.
