Firefox Quantum Updated

Well will you look at that – there is life in the old girl. 11-12 years ago I switched over to Mozilla Firefox and vowed never to switch back to Internet Explorer. I loved Firefox and it has always been a really good browser to use but then I started using Google Chrome and it felt better and more flexible and faster than Firefox. Oh dear, what to do?

So for many, many years now I have been using both at home and at the office. At home I open both browsers and open up various tabs on each to go to various things I wanna see online. Though my current process at work works solely on Chrome so I end up using that a lot more. But now and then at work I will try to get online using Firefox if I feel like using the old familiar. This early morning as I switched on my laptop and started up Firefox she updated automatically to the latest version.

Mozilla claims its updated web browser is twice as fast as its last one, and uses a lot less memory than the competition—Google Chrome in particular. It’s called Firefox Quantum, and it might give the web’s most popular web browser a run for its money. Firefox Quantum is twice as fast as the previous build of Firefox, according to the company’s benchmark tests comparing Quantum to both Chrome and the previous version of Firefox. Its memory tests showed a noticeable decrease in memory usage compared to Google Chrome on Windows 10 and Linux; on macOS 10.12, memory usage was pretty much the same.

Try it out.

Been taking a few black & white photos using an app for a 7 day photo challenge on Facebook. I usually get the time to remember about it only at night when I am back in my bedroom and will be too tired to look for something interesting to snap. This mouse looked like a good enough subject.

Bought A New 2TB External Hard Drive

After more than 3 weeks of arguing with myself, checking prices, checking other people’s opinions and checking the varying prices and offers on Amazon.in I finally caved in and bought myself a 2TB external hard drive.

Some of you, old time readers or if you have accidentally found those particular blog posts will know that I rip my mp3s, dvds and blue ray copies onto external hard drives. I have 3 1TB drives (all loan for ivf Western Digital), a 320 GB Transcend drive and a 160 GB old Western Digital drive. the 160 GB drive that serves as a back up for my mp3 files and a 350 GB drive that has mostly movie files. My three 1TB drives have music, photos, my own vids, photos, downloaded images, some other files and tv shows and movies. My vast collection of things from the internet or from my phone’s camera.

Space is payday loan shop running out soon as I also shoot a lot of videos myself plus I want a lot more space for the data. This 2TB drive is from Adata and it’s the ADATA HC660 2TB USB 3.0 Elite External Hard Drive (Titanium). I expect it on Wednesday.
