Firefox 4 on Windows 7

(should be 22 March 2011 09.00 PM at GMT-5 US) i got FF4 on my work notebook, HP Probook 5220m, i get it from engadget article, before the actual release date. first impression is awesome, this is the version of FF i love the most, compact UI, larger screen for content, and even better HTML5 and javascript engine.

i get it on all my machines as soon as possible, that count as XP on ThinkPad T61, Ubuntu 10.04 on ThinkPad T61 and Windows 7 on Probook 5220m, another feature that i love is the sync, it’ll sync bookmark on all my firefox browsers on all machines, including preferences and tabs, i hope it include add-ons too later :)

Closing FF4but something different, when closing FF4 by default it won’t ask you to save current session or not, it only gives warning to close multiple tabs, i love that features, and i want it back! so here’s how, type


IE 9 offline installation

last night my local time (15 March 2011) IE 9 launched officially, it seems that this IE version is the most waited version of IE… first, better UI, larger content, not bars!! that sucks, and the biggest reason is html 5 support, and performance, IE 6 is quite light but, it don’t have a tabbed browsing, IE 7 gives tabbed browsing but feels very heavy on every tab load, IE 8 not giving too much difference for me tough… in the end, i still hate IE (hail firefox addons).

ok, back to the topic… i’ll share you my experience installing IE 9 last night, the official web for IE 9 is, requirement:

  • Windows Vista (x86 and x64) with Service Pack 2 (SP 2)
  • Windows 7 (x86 and x64)
  • Windows Server 2008 (x86 and x64) with Service Pack 2 (SP 2)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 x64
  • Windows XP NOT SUPPORTED (up to IE 8)
  1. go to and download the IE 9 prerequisite for your version of windows, install it and reboot
  2. go to and click the download link, and you’ll get web installer (about 500kb) that sucks because you’ll have to download more files on installation, (hint: use download manager if you find difficulty downloading, coz it happen to me, the connection always dropped every about 25-50kb of download) and launch the web installer, follow the instruction and you should be fine (but apparently not)
