It was a big week in the never-ending Internet browsers race. First, Firefox 4 was finally launched two days ago – last of the next generation browsers to hit the market, trailing behind Chrome 10 and Internet Explorer 9. It brought some new and interesting changes to UI – a brightly colored Firefox start button, that looks like something nicked from a recent Opera version, plus a tab-pinning function, no doubt nicked from Google. I just wish that Firefox would go further with their “borrowing” spree and include a cool IE9’s option to pin the websites to your task bar. But this release was not only about reused UI ideas. Reviewers praised new Firefox for its improved speed, GPU acceleration, and compatibility with latest and greatest standards, including HTML5. Over all, it’s a very modern, lean and mean browser, a clear improvement over previous 3.6 version.
Now that Mozilla has finally released Firefox 4 to the masses, it’s time for a BIG browser benchmark where we take the leading browsers and pit them against four of the toughest benchmark tests available to see which is the tortoise, and which is the hare.
Here are the browsers that will be run:
Here are the tests that the browsers will face:

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is an older protocol for moving files back and forth over the Internet and other networks. All modern web browsers still speak FTP, which was sometimes used as a substitute for HTTP in the early days of the web. FTP is still used often as a means of downloading large files.
Many web hosts still offer FTP as the preferred way of uploading new web pages to a website. However, because there is no encryption of your password, FTP is not the best choice for this purpose. And since there is no encryption of the files being moved, FTP is a poor choice indeed for more sensitive information.

Hotfile, one of the rising stars on the file-hosting scene, appears to be taking a tougher stance on copyright infringement. Perhaps with an eye on the litigation recently instigated by the MPAA, this week Hotfile has been deleting premium accounts – along with all their files – en masse. Furthermore, Hotfile are reportedly not paying out the money these accounts have earned in the site’s rewards program. hotfile As bandwidth and storage capacity have increased, so have the capabilities of file-hosting services.

Creating a desktop shortcut for locking your comp!
If you use your computer in an area where others may have access to it, and there are things on your system you would rather have kept confidential, locking your desktop when you leave the computer is an essential task. Here’s a recipe for a desktop shortcut that will lock your computer in two easy clicks:
Right click on an empty area of the desktop and choose ‘new’ then ’shortcut.’ The create shortcut wizard will open; in the first text box, type ‘%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation’ and then give your shortcut an appropriate name on the next page, and hit ‘finish.’
You will notice that the shortcut you created has a blank icon. To select a more appropriate one, right click on the shortcut and hit ‘properties.’ In the ’shortcut’ tab, click the ‘change icon’ button.
In the ‘look for icons in this file’ box, type ‘%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll’ then click ‘ok’ to see a range of icons for your new shortcut. Choose an appropriate icon. Your desktop locking shortcut is now ready for use. Test it out.
