techpersona: Firefox is becoming increasingly popular. One reason may be simple spite against Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. For me, the reason is Firefox’s extensibility. Its interface and functions can be customized. I have 13 extensions–the functional add-ons. I want to suggest for you.
bloggingstocks.com: The theory goes that Linux, the open-source operating system, will replace Windows as the preferred software to run servers. Over time, the cost advantage of software created by a community of developers would overwhelm the pricey Microsoft product. So much for theory.
