My Bookmarks Toolbar

I just wanted to share with you my bookmarks toolbar. It shows my bookmarks as icons without text. I find this as a good way to save space and show as many bookmarks as possible in a single row. Click on the picture below to enlarge it.

To hide the text you need to right-click on the bookmark and delete the name. This works great in Firefox.

Now we have two open source mobile platforms under development, Android and Symbian. This is huge news for mobile phone owners because in few years, the majority of mobile phones will be based on open software, which are in most cases free or incredibily cheap.

Firefox 3 Zoom Tips

In celebration of Firefox 3 release yesterday, Here are a few tips to make the most out of the new zoom feature of your web browser:

  • Hold down Ctrl and + to zoom in and - to zoom out. Hold down Ctrl and 0 (Zero) to reset the zoom back to the default setting.
  • Use No Squint extension if you wish to zoom all websites to a specific zoom level. For example, if you wish to enlarge all sites 150% of their default text size.
  • Make sure you know the difference between Full Page Zoom and Text-Only Zoom.
If you are not using Firefox 3 yet, what are you waiting for?

iPhone: Good News and Bad News

OK, so I'm finally sold on the iPhone 3G. Excellent mobile phone with all the features that I need; from "exchange push email" to 3G (3.5G actually) and wifi. And the upcoming Mobile Firefox, where I think Mozilla is heavely concentrating on the iPhone platform (most builds are shown on a large portrait touch screen, its obvious).

The bad news:

  1. No MMS, copy paste, or video out of the box
  2. $199 price is only for in-store activated phones. Which means you can't buy one and exit the store without commiting to a 2 year plan. No clue how much it will cost without activation, if they will sell it without activation.
To remedy the first problem you have to jailbreak (unlock) the iPhone, if you can get your hand on one, which is the second problem.
