Alternate browsers - Opera

by ab_aditya In reply to AB's reflections

Opera has been a useful alternative browser for quite some time. I have used it right from version 5.x. Now that it has become completely free (it had banner ads earlier), it can be looked upon as a handy browser.
Features: It includes some basic features found in most of the newer browsers, like tabbed browsing, [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://abaditya.wordpress.com/2006/01/09/alternate-browsers-opera/">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

The main aim of this blog is to provide users with information on different kinds of software available. The types of software covered will be quite wide, ranging from firewalls & antiviruses, to games, [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://abaditya.wordpress.com/2006/01/09/objective-of-the-software-reflections/">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Alternate browsers - Firefox

by ab_aditya In reply to AB's reflections

Firefox seems to be emerging as the most popular alternate browser, especially after the release of version 1 around a year ago. The main reason seems to have been the delay in the release of the next IE version (& also the security flaws in IE), as a vast majority of the users are still [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://abaditya.wordpress.com/2006/01/09/alternate-browsers-firefox/">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Personality types

by ab_aditya In reply to AB's reflections

We encounter various types of poeple everyday, & we also at times contemplate about our own behaviour. As per some of the theories (Jung, Keirsey etc), there are 4 pairs of characteristics:

I-E Introvert-Extrovert
N-S: iNtuitive-Sensing
F-T: Feeling-Thinking
P-J: Perceiving-Judging

Each personality type has one of each pair as the dominant charateristic. The middle 2 pairs (N-S & F-T) are [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://abaditya.wordpress.com/2006/01/09/personality-types/">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Alternate browsers - Maxthon

by ab_aditya In reply to AB's reflections

Strictly speaking, Maxthon may not be a browser by itself as it uses the Internet Explorer engine. However, for the people who are using IE as the primary browser, it is a very feasible alternative. It is probably both good & bad as it uses the IE engine, depending on one’s point of view. It [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://abaditya.wordpress.com/2006/01/09/alternate-browsers-maxthon/">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

I have been trying out different kinds of software for quite a few years now, & have even been recommending?various applications to my friends & relatives. Trying out software has become like a hobby of sorts for me, & so I thought I’d share my opinions on different software with more people.

Celestia - explore the universe

by ab_aditya In reply to AB's reflections

Celestia is a software which explore the universe in 3D, & it is free just like Stellarium. It takes you a step further than a planetarium like software, by not confining you to Earth. For Astronomy enthusiasts or for anyone for that matter, this can provide an out of this world experience. Like, for example, [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://abaditya.wordpress.com/2006/01/11/celestia-explore-the-universe/">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Stellarium - turn your computer into a planetarium

by ab_aditya In reply to AB's reflections

Stellarium along with Celestia is one of the most interesting piece of software for those interested in Astronomy. Those who like to visit the planetarium will possibly love this program, especially given the fact that it is free (licensed under GPL). It brings the power of a panetarium (minus the viewing area) to your computer.
