Web Applications

December 3, 2004

I’m checking more and more into webbased apps like flickr and (in combination with gmail) and decided to switch completely to firefox on my powerbook. Though I really like the speed of safari and its more integrated ‘feel’ with osx, I like how firefox is building out into a platform. I have tried the Sage extension (an integrated RSS reader for Firefox) but find it lacking in quality to netnewswire though I like the idea of having firefox as a onestop shop. We’ll see how this one rolls out.

Welcome to Flickr!

I got a Flickr! account. Really a wonderful piece of web software. I’m using the 1001 app to upload photos and it works like a charm. Looking forward to expanding my flickr photo library.
