Fear? No! Pleasure of Firefox!

       I am a girl who don’t like to try new things, perhaps because I am always afraid of a failure after trying. Contrary to me, my younger sister just likes new things very much. Therefore, every time when we go to restaurant, I just choose the same food as usual again and again, but my little sister doesn’t. Pointing the menu, she always kept saying excitedly, “this one looks so tasty! It must be delicious since I have almost felt the smell, which I cannot wait to try.” Seeing her pleased impression after the meals, I have the impulse of changing but still fear and not have enough courage.

    The Firefox, seems to be one of the look-good new dish in my eyes, I was really nerves at first. Going to our group blog, I saw that almost every girl writes and researches about it. I was so curious about whether it really gives us a lot of fun.

     With this question, I installed Firefox at once and went to have a look. After doing so, I was suggested to add several add-ons.

( Hesitating when I was facing with so many different add-ons. ) Continue reading

Before you read this post, please be so kind to read the post I wrote on Sunday, about Professor X and the Pleasure of Firefox Add-ons and about the basics of Mozilla Firefox and my discovery of add-ons.

Now, I want to show you other gorgeous add-ons which will help you to understand webdesign and even enable you to change the settings.

And here comes the infamous ‘Firebug’ into existence.

Professor X and the Pleasure of Firefox Add-Ons

Last week on Tuesday, 21st June 2011, Mozilla Firefox 5 was released and I was curious about the differences between the older version Firefox 4.0.1 and the new one.

However, before I am going to tell you what I found out and where my research was leading me, we all need to be on the same page. If you don’t know what makes Firefox so special, watch this lovely video, but don’t forget that it features Firefox 3.6 and was created by Mozilla itself, therefore, it might be focusing solely on the good stuff.

How To Buy Knowledge

Yesterday, I went to the Karneval der Kulturen with my best friend. She is studying BioChemistry and I am always wondering how smart she can be to study something which is that complex. (Ö_Ö)

Naturally, we always talk about interesting topics which would be of interest for A Girl’s Business and we stumbled over ‘Wolfram׀Alpha’, which is described by founder Dr. Stephen Wolfram  as a “knowledge engine that computes answers to questions”.

For example, typing in “GDP of France versus Britain” the result will be a comparison with charts and other figures of the two countries’ GDP . You can write down huge mathematical formulas and in the end get not only the solution but also a graph which is showing the root. However, when you ask about the best sci-fi movie in history it will give you a table with the percentage of people having the surname ‘Best’ in America.

Now in spite of that, it is safe to say, that Wolfram׀Alpha is awesome, especially since it was voted the greatest computer innovation of 2009 by Popular Science.

What makes Wolfram Alpha interesting for businesses? Continue reading
