Cloud Computing Expo - Google Chrome & Browser War III

With Chrome, Google gets to scare the bejesus out of Microsoft by revitalizing Netscape’s old browser-as-platform threat and keep Firefox around as a fallback position in case Chrome doesn’t catch on or is slow in catching on, all the while maintaining the goodwill of the “community.” Firefox currently holds ~18% of the market to Microsoft’s ~75%.

The widgetry is called Google Chrome and Google Chrome, like all of Google's non-search widgetry, is a beta. Presumably that means it's going to be like Google's apps and be interminably in beta since Google's own blog says the timing is "a bit early," well, at least a day earlier than intended as a result of a hair-trigger mailroom that on Mo...

During times of natural accidents in the family, filing of chapter 7 can greatly reduce the amount for the medical bills. Many families have to make choices on allocation of bills. Often, bills that were once important become... (more)

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
