  1. Review - Defraggler

    2.18.945 (Apr 16, 2014)

    I'll happily stay with ultra defrag. I'm sure defraggler does a good job, but I'm not getting any younger and i can't wait until my next birthday for it to defrag drive:c And, I dpon't want to waste time picking and choosing files to defrag. Bottom line is that it's remarkably slow. Even "quick defrag" is remarkably not quick. Now, back to Ultra.

  2. Review - Maxthon Cloud for Windows Beta (Apr 3, 2014)

    I used MCloud for a while as a second browser. It is good and fairly fast. Out of curiosity I tried out Maxthon 3 and found it to be more responsive and more customizable than MCloud 4. And, in my opinion a better browser, which I now use as my second browser.

  3. Review - Opera for Windows

    20.0.1387.82 (Mar 24, 2014)

    I really, really, really.......... did try to make myself like it. However, after all my trying to wish it into a useful and desirable browser I failed. Then I uninstalled it.

  4. Review - SeaMonkey for Windows

    2.25 (Mar 21, 2014)

    There's not a browser out there that's a five star, but the closest to a five star rating is FireFox. Seamonkey surely does not rate a five. first of all it's no faster than FF. Importing favorites is difficult. I had to use the XMarks extension. Very few extensions work on Seamonkey, not even Gmail, as I'm not a Thunderbird fan. Appearance is fairly awful. If you're into nostalgia I guess the themes you can add-on would be ok, as they are ancient.

    In conclusion, it's a fairly good browser that does nothing that is in any way, exceptional. Truly nothing to get excited about.

  5. Review - Google Chrome for Windows

    33.0.1750.154 (Mar 19, 2014)

    I used google chrome in the past, for a number of years. It got better and better, until about a year or more go and went downhill. All of a sudden it became sluggish with slow page rendering, to the point where it simply wasn't worth using any longer.

    At that time, about a year ago I switched to Firefox and have been using it ever since. Quite frankly, Chrome can't hold a candle to FF. I still check out chrome and install updates, however I see virtually no improvement with chrome. I always wonder what happened to chrome.

  6. Comment - Can IE9 stop Microsoft's steady browser decline?

    In a word, no! In two words, No!, No!

  7. Comment - Opera releases version 9.5

    33.0.1750.154 (Jun 15, 2008 - 1:47 PM)

    I've been using opera 9.50 "final" for a couple of days. Surely, this can't be a final. It won't even load my home page on startup. To get it going I have to click on another bookmark. I'm going back to 9.27 and will wait for FF3 on June 17th.

  8. Comment - MSN Virtual Earth Beta Goes Live

    33.0.1750.154 (Jul 26, 2005 - 12:40 PM)

    Tried it and it's not nearly as good as google free earth. In fact it's pretty cheesy.

  9. Comment - Bill Proposes Ending Free Weather Data

    Of course, another corporate kiss-ass Republican, who will do what dollar signs tell them to do.

    I hope he gets sucked up in a tornado.
