Small Update

Small changes have been made to the design, such as making the nav buttons a bit different. They have nice hover effects that work (gasp!) in IE and in other browsers. An “about” blurb has been added, while the twitter feed has been revived and repositioned. The

tags have been made pretty, thanks to the magic of CSS. 3Cogs is chuggin along nicely. Hopefully it will meet the release date.

On another note, I’ve recently been messing around with a bunch of different browsers, partially out of boredom and partially to test them. Out of all the ones I tested, 32 browsers especially stood out:

Stainless

This is an even more minimalistic Chrome-based browser. I like it because it runs natively on Macs, without Crossover, and offers the same tab control system. JS performance is quite fast. It’s still in beta, but it’s stable enough to be a primary bare-bones browser. Note that there is no bookmarking nor history feature (but there is private browsing for some odd reason). All the plugins (like Flash) seem to work out of the box if you have them installed in Safari. [Mac only]

Shiira

This is another fun browser. It uses Webkit and is based off of Safari, and has some nifty new features. One of them is the “pagedock” which shows thumbnails of the pages open. If you don’t like the pagedock, you can simply turn it off and use tabs instead. It also has an “exposé” feature, where all the open web pages turn into thumbnails, just like on the Mac’s exposé. It’s also pretty fast, and I recommend it. [Mac only]

That’s pretty much all for now.
