Inline Seach: Cool IE Add-On

leave a comment »

I hate modal “Find” of IE, which MS chose not to change even in IE7. So here is one cool add-on by IEForge for Firefox-like inline search functionality in IE.

Firefox Gaining Market Share

leave a comment »

Firefox has been gaining browser market share really fast, it seems. January statistics are 31% for Firefox compared to 42.3% for IE6 and 13.3% for IE7. Even though Firefox has its share of issues/bugs (features 🙂 ), and I like IE7’s beautiful rendering of fonts, I would love to see Firefox gaining some more market and mind share.

Clearification

leave a comment »

Clearification – this viral marketing campaign for Windows Vista is very well executed creative marketing stuff coming out of Microsoft. It’s a clever 6 part video series. Not sure, it’s doing any good to Vista, or is viral at all, but I rate it pretty high on creativity scale.

Finding Jim Gray

leave a comment »

Fascinating stuff. Amazon has put up a Mechanical Turk task to help find Jim Gray, the Turing Award winner missing since Jan 28, 07 in the sea, by letting people scan and analyze satellite imagery to locate his 40ft (6px-by-2px) yacht.
