Thoughts on Mozilla  —  You can now directly download the video or the audio.  —  Spurred by a conversation I had today, I thought I'd post some wide-ranging and very rough thoughts on Mozilla.  They're pretty raw and uncensored, and I go for about 50 minutes, but it might be somewhat thought-provoking.

On Mozilla and The Evolution of the Browser  —  Interesting posts recently from two people who have an important role in defining the future of the browser.  Firstly, I missed it while I was in transit in the US, but Mozilla developer Alex Faaborg posted the slides of his presentation at the recent Web 2.0 Expo.

Mary Jo Foley / All about Microsoft:
Longhorn Server to be christened Windows Server 2008  —  To next to no one's surprise, Microsoft is going to christen Longhorn Server "Windows Server 2008."  And it might do so as early as next week to coincide with the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in Los Angeles.

The New Google Analytics is So Not Cool  —  All the excitements about the new Google Analytics should be now over and let's face it, it's not that cool.  Google claim that the new user interface will "present data more clearly", but not in the case with me - it's way more confusing that the previous version.
