The relative new browser Vivaldi has been updated to Beta 2 recently.
I have been using it on a regular base the last weeks and I have to admit I am impressed. It already seems mature and stable and is fun to use.
Check out Vivaldi’s web site for more info.
Using Google as search engines annoyed me more and more. I found this article http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/internet101/ss/The-Best-Search-Engines-of-2015.htm#showall very interesting.
Most of the time now I use DuckDuckGo, StartPage or IxQuick as my favorite search engines.

So you like Chrome, but sometimes have compatibility problems and fallback on Internet Explorer ? In this case, try ChromePlus: http://www.chromeplus.org/. It’s based on Chrome, and if necessary you can open an IE tab within ChromePlus.
From the ChromePlus website:
ChromePlus has all the functionalities that Google Chrome has. More, ChromePlus added some useful features such as Mouse gesture, Super drag, IE tab, etc. Meanwhile, ChromePlus is free with no function limitation and you can use ChromePlus to surf the internet in any case.
There it is, the final version of Firefox 3.5, a few days after RC3. I did not notice Firefox updating the version and now everywhere it clearly states 3.5 instead of RC3. There were probable not a lot of changes between RC3 (or no changes at all) and the final version 3.5 …
Anyway both versions seem snappy. Up to version 4 now 😉
