BBEdit 6.5.2, Eudora (Mac OS X Beta 20), TimeCache 4.1.5 (though not the OS X version; wish they'd fix some bugs with that one too)... Still waiting for: Macromedia Fireworks (who I expected to have something to say for themselves at Macworld, but nooooo....) and Adobe Photoshop ('just taking our time, see you in the spring'). What, was OS X a sudden surprise? Were the demos from last year and the year before of their programs working under OS X just QuickTime movies, or were they real? Bah. I'd give them money if they would give me new software, but so far they refuse to take it.
major site has come out as being opposed to their use in general. They further note that whatever pop-up windows you may see near a Google window didn't come from them. Kinda sad that it's necessary to clarify it, but it's good of them to do so. Speaking of Google, here's a semi-interesting interview with the CEO: Three Minutes With Google's Eric Schmidt [PCWorld]
Half of Google's revenue comes from selling text-based ads that are placed near search results and are related to the topic of the search. Another half of its revenues come from licensing its search technology to companies like Yahoo. The catalog search is a good example of a new service, because it was done in six months by two people. Because Google already has the infrastructure, it's relatively easy to add new services.
Indeed -- with just a few exceptions, I don't read sites that use really teeny text. I mean, hello!! Eyestrain?? No thanks! I especially hate it when I can't adjust the text size (for whatever reason) with the browser... then I'm just inclined to click on by.
I used to have a proxy filter out all FONT tags except the ones from nowthis.com. Now I use Galeon, which lets me set a minimum font size, so no site can have small text (which is fine with me) and no one is made to shout.
mozilla, ominweb, and iCab also support min font sizes... don't remember whether opera does or not
Ah, but matt, my point is that if sites didn't *try* to be so $%^#! small, you wouldn't even have to care about such a setting.Add a comment...
