Firefox & Lightning Updates
Topic: Technology

Mozilla announces updates to two important categories: Firefox, its award winning web browser, and Lightning, a calendar|email integrating app, are both updated.

Firefox receives an update to Firefox 1.5.02. If you have browser version 1.5.x, your browser will automatically update itself. In related fronts, Bon Echo Alpha 1 was recently made available by the Mozilla team. Bon Echo is the first step towards what will become Firefox 2.0.

Lightning 0.1 was recently released to deliver tighter integration between Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla's award winning email client, and its Calendar project. Mozilla's calendar has taken a variety of forms, from a browser/client extension to stand alone (and What the Thunder Said... preference) Mozilla Sunbird. For those of us who are eager to see Mozilla take down M$ applications, tighter integration in Thunderbird will mean more competition for Microsoft Outlook.

Unfortunately, it does not seem as though Mozilla has previously given attention to the Calendar project, or even Thunderbird, that Firefox has received. Hopefully, with the release of Lightning 0.1, an increase in use, bug-reporting, and performance will be easily ascertained.
Upgrade to Firefox 1.5!

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
