A fresh take on the browser

At Google, we spend much of our time working inside a browser. We search, chat, email and collaborate in a browser. And like all of you, in our spare time, we shop, bank, read news and keep in touch with friends - all using a browser. People are spending an increasing amount of time online, and they're doing things never imagined when the web first appeared about 15 years ago.

Since we spend so much time online, we began seriously thinking about what kind of browser could exist if you started from scratch and built on the best elements out there. We realized that the web had evolved from mainly simple text pages to rich, interactive applications and that we needed to completely rethink the browser. What we really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that's what we set out to build.

So today we're releasing the beta version of a new open source browser: Google Chrome.

On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. To most people, it isn't the browser that matters. It's only a tool to run the important stuff - the pages, sites and applications that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want to go.

Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser that runs today's complex web applications much better . By keeping each tab in an isolated "sandbox", we were able to prevent one tab from crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built V8, a more powerful JavaScript engine, to power the next generation of web applications that aren't even possible in today's browsers.

This is just the beginning - Google Chrome is far from done. We've released this beta for Windows to start the broader discussion and hear from you as quickly as possible. We're hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux too, and we'll continue to make it even faster and more robust.

We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we're committed to continuing on their path. We've used components from Apple's WebKit and Mozilla's Firefox, among others - and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.

The web gets better with more options and innovation. Google Chrome is another option, and we hope it contributes to making the web even better.

But enough from us. The best test of Google Chrome is to try it yourself.

Adobe® Flash® Player 10 Released

Adobe has released Adobe® Flash® Player 10, code-named "Astro," .................

Some exciting features:

3D Effects - Easily transform and animate any display object through 3D space while retaining full interactivity. Fast, lightweight, and native 3D effects make motion that was previously reserved for expert users available to everyone. Complex effects are simple with APIs that extend what you already know.

Custom Filters and Effects - Create your own portable filters, blend modes, and fills using Adobe® Pixel Bender™, the same technology used for many After Effects CS3 filters. Shaders in Flash Player are about 1KB and can be scripted and animated at runtime.

Advanced Text Layout - A new, highly flexible text layout engine, co-existing with TextField, enables innovation in creating new text controls by providing low-level access to text offering right-to-left and vertical text layout, plus support for typographic elements like ligatures.

Enhanced Drawing API - Runtime drawing is easier and more powerful with re-styleable properties, 3D APIs, and a new way of drawing sophisticated shapes without having to code them line by line.

Visual Performance Improvements – Applications and videos will run smoother and faster with expanded use of hardware acceleration. By moving several visual processing tasks to the video card, the CPU is free to do more.

Comment Widget For Blogger

While Blogger doesn't encourage comments and communities, it's still interesting to see who comments on your blog more frequently. This information can be obtained from Blogger's comment feeds, but you need a tool for processing feeds.Yahoo Pipes is probably the best way to combine, sort, filter and modify feeds. Inspired by this Yahoo Pipe, I created a pipe that shows the top 50 commentators from a Blogger blog, based on the most recent 5,000 comments. You can enter the URL of your blog and the number of top commentators, but the list is not generated instantaneously since Yahoo Pipe must fetch and process at most 10 GData feeds (Blogger's API doesn't include more than 500 comments in a single feed). The pipe could also be used to add the list of top commentators to the blog, using the JSON code generated by Yahoo.Depending on the number of comments from your blog, the list may not be very meaningful. For example, if your posts get an average of 500 comments, this list will only reflect the hierarchy for the last 10 posts. To see the total number of comments from your blog, open this feed: (replace BLOGNAME with the proper subdomain), view the page's source and search for "openSearch:totalResults". Google Operating System has 15,217 comments and the most recent 5,000 comments corresponding to the last 5 months.Update. Here's some JavaScript code that uses Yahoo's JSON output.

This could be easily added in a HTML/JavaScript page element from Blogger.

<script type="text/javascript">function pipeCallback(obj) {document.write("<ol>");var i;for (i = 0; i < href = "'" item =" ">" + "<a href=" + href + ">" + obj.value.items[i].title + "</a> </li>";document.write(item);}document.write("</ol>");}</script><script src= "" type="text/javascript"></script>

(merge the last two lines and replace BLOGNAME with your blog's subdomain name).

Unexpected attribute 'url' found in 'endpoint' from file: services-config.xml


I got this bug in flex2.01 when working with FlexDataService:::: Unexpected attribute 'url' found in 'endpoint' from file: services-config.xml.

and i solved the bug with the help of nodogbite

This is the instruction from him..

1) Make a backup copy of the Flex SDK 2 folder

2) Unzip the that came with LiveCycle Data Services 2.5. It creates a folder flex_sdk_2 by default. Copy this folder into the Flex SDK 2 folder, and click yes to overwrite all.

3) Make a backup copy of the com.adobe.flexbuilder.flex_2.0.155577 folder that is under plugins.

4) Copy the lib folder from our updated and modified Flex SDK 2 folder into the com.adobe.flexbuilder.flex_2.0.155577 folder and select yes to overwrite all.

5) From the backup of the com.adobe.flexbuilder.flex_2.0.155577 folder that you created, copy the flex-compiler-oem.jar file into our updated and modified version of the lib directory.

Reopen Flex Builder 2.01.
