Mozilla to shift 12m surfers off 2-year-old Firefox 3.5

CK Lee

I would be happy to use the newer Firefox if they allow lower versions of Java to run

According to the Java website:


Starting with Firefox 3.6, Java-based applications will NOT work unless you are running Java version 6 Update 10 or newer.

This is a major problem for my Enterprise application which depends on JDK 1.5.

BTW, the Enterprise application comes from the owner of Java.

Nokia deal to 'rocket Windows Phone 7 past iPhone'

CK Lee

Nokia user to iPhone user

For me Nokia used to be the most stable of all the phone platforms around.

I suspect that if the customer is looking for the same stability they may stick with

Symbian (and not the Brand) and if they are looking for a smartphone, I will use the

one my friends are all using so that I can have the same apps.

For me, I have a Nokia E61i and moving to iPhone 4/5.

Apple: Yes, Safari outperforms embedded iOS web viewer

CK Lee

Good Thing that the optimization did not extend to embedded browser

I have an existing web application that worked fine under the previous iOS 4.2 running on either Safari or the embedded browsers offered by some other app.

However, after I updated by iPAD to iOS 4.3, the web application now CRASHES when running in Safari. So I had to use other apps to "download" my web application and then run it using its embedded browser. Then it will work.

Now, until Apple fixes the problems with NITRO, perhaps they can provide a "switch" to turn off the optimization on the Safari browser so that I can still use my existing working web apps.

Microsoft slams 'sensationalist' Vista analysis

CK Lee

Would prefer XP Pro Lite rather than Vista

I am using Vista Business in my office and I am the only one. After my experience with Vista, all other new machines have been XP Pro. The problem with Vista is that some of critical apps don't work or work well on Vista as compare to XP. I think too many things were changed between XP Pro and Vista and I can't be buying new versions for every single app the office uses (esp Microsoft's own Office. Outlook 2000 don't work). But the most critical issue is that each generation of machines I purchase which is suppose to be faster, better and can do more, ends up running slower with Vista. In the end, all we wanted was to be able to run faster (hence the newer machines) but with the same apps and features. Perhaps Microsoft could issue a XP Pro lite and we will have upgraded ALL our machines to it.
