Firefox 3 Beta 5 sees huge improvements.

I don't have time to discuss every feature nor do I have time to write long sentences. So, instead I would directly copy and paste from a reliable web source all the great things about the new Firefox which I think everybody should notice. The following are not my own words and I do not take any credit of originality and to circumvent plagiarizing I give link to the original source of information. People interested might want to read the entire article : http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20071120-afirst-look-at-firefox-3-beta-1.html. But, my article would contain only short description of the new features for the guys short of time.

1. The Places system, which was originally planned for Firefox 2, is a cohesive storage framework that uses a SQLite database rather than flat files and unifies bookmark and history storage. New user interfaces for bookmark management have also been created to give users access to the new capabilities—like support for bookmark tagging—that are made possible by the Places system. A new star icon adjacent to the URL text box uses the Places system to simplify the process of bookmarking a page. In the URL autocompletion box, stars are shown next to bookmarked pages.


2. The download manager user interface has been completely redesigned and now includes a search text box for filtering completed downloads. The new download manager also supports integration with the user's anti-virus software and has better support for resuming paused or canceled downloads.

3. There are a lot of little usability improvements that make a big difference. For instance, the address bar autocompletion system can now match against page titles as well as addresses, The zoom setting is now remembered on a per site basis, a new resizer in the navigation toolbar lets users adjust the width the search text box, and page identity information can now be accessed by clicking the page favicon at the left end of the address bar.

That's all for now.

Fastest way to send multiple drafts from gmail

People claim that the fastest way to send multiple email drafts is to use Gmail IMAP with email client like Outlook or Evolution or Thunderbird. But I have found this is not true. Because Thunderbird and Evolution etc. email clients treats the drafts as emails still to be edited. So it is not just simple select all and hit send. Each email draft has to be opened and sent separately. That is a lot of clicks and mouse movements, wasting precious time and energy. I have a better solution which involves minimum keystrokes and mouse usage. Efficiency booster technique for sending emails.
If someone is feeling adventurous and want to try it from the Gmail interface itself, here's how to do it in the fastest possible manner. It involves using the mouse once. Select the first draft. Gmail would open a new email box and put the cursor inside the box to write.Press TAB once to go the Send button.Press ENTER to send. Now Gmail sends it and the box is gone but the highlight goes to the last li…

How to join audio tracks smoothly in Audacity

Audio tracks can be mixed easily in full fledged video editors like kdenlive or Adobe Premiere but for mixing or joining audio they would not provide the amount of control that audio editors like Audacity provide. The example I am going to show today would demonstrate the range of tools in Audacity that allows us to control the waveform and to mold it to our desire.

Today I am going to take a small track like a small 1 min. clip of storm sound and make a long continuous sounding storm audio clip from it.

STEP 1 : Open file
Open the clip in Audacity.

STEP 2 : Removing unwanted audio portion
There is always unwanted sections of the audio that we have to discard. Select the portion of background noise or unwanted audio.


Press DELETE key.

STEP 3 : Duplicating the track
Now we make a copy of the entire waveform and paste it at the end of the track.

Select the SELECT tool (the one which looks like I). Then select the whole waveform and prss Ctrl+c. Now click approximately at the end of the…
