Now you can expect that 250% speed blast from Firefox 3.5

PHP Error Message

Warning: preg_match_all() [function.preg-match-all]: Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (?< at offset 15 in /home/a2765022/public_html/wp-content/plugins/fv-code-highlighter/trunk/FVCodeHighlighter.php on line 358

Last week, we reported that the first public users of the first Mozilla Firefox 3.5 release candidate could expect two-and-one-half times the speed of Firefox 3.0.10 right after installation. But we also thought that the RC was coming within mere hours. As it turned out, the organization released a stand-in called “Beta 99″ instead, with a warning that it may not have received the full array of testing a release candidate should require.

Since that time, Firefox 3.0 has had one update of its own. But yesterday, Mozilla made the final build of 3.5 RC1 publicly available (the numbering indicating that there may yet be an “RC2″). So after a fresh round of tests, we can report the following: RC1 will provide Windows XP SP3 users with 251.5% the speed of version 3.0.11, will give Vista SP2 users 244.7% the speed, and will give Windows 7 RC users 239.6% the speed of the current stable edition.

A word about our Windows Web browser test suite

Now, let me be clear (or rather, clearer than I was last time) as to what that means: This means that users will notice JavaScript processing and CSS rendering that users will see will be two-and-one-half times faster in the new Firefox Release Candidate than they would experience with the same content rendered in Firefox 3.0.11.

When you take standards adherence into account, Firefox 3.5 RC1 scores a 7.57 on our current physical performance index in Windows Vista SP2 — meaning, we estimate RC1 to be 757% the browser that Internet Explorer 7 used to be on that platform (not IE8, which has more than double IE7’s performance). This compared to a 3.80 score for Firefox 3.0.11 in Vista. In Windows 7, RC1 turned in an 8.81 on our index versus 4.37 for 3.0.11, although later daily private builds of 3.5 and 3.6 turned in slightly better performance scores — typically, they decline a bit. And on XP SP3, RC1 turns in a 9.86 on our index versus 3.0.11’s score of 4.65.

Relative performance of Windows-based Web browsers, June 17, 2009.

Yesterday was also the day Opera Software updated its beta of the Opera 10 browser, this time to include the new Opera Unite server-in-a-browser feature. How much of a performance hit did Opera 10 Beta build 1589 suffer on account of that new feature?

Almost none at all in Windows XP, with an updated performance score there of 5.22 versus 5.26 for the previous build. Windows 7 RC performance actually improved by a tick-and-a-half, with an updated score of 5.49 versus 5.33 for the prior build. But Vista performance actually suffered slightly, with a new score of 4.99 supplanting the older build’s 5.09. And you read those numbers correctly: Opera 10 Beta currently runs faster in Windows 7 RC than in Windows XP SP3.

For those of you who’ve been wondering…How well did IE7 (the earlier edition of Microsoft’s browser) score in XP SP3, versus Vista? We can’t run IE7 (reliably) in Windows 7, so we haven’t been able to use that as a benchmark for how much faster applications can run in Win7 than Vista. But in XP, IE7 turned in an index score of 1.09, and was typically 12% faster than in Vista. On average, browsers we’ve tested run 27% faster on XP SP3 than Vista SP1.

Disney Netpal

PHP Error Message

Warning: preg_match_all() [function.preg-match-all]: Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (?< at offset 15 in /home/a2765022/public_html/wp-content/plugins/fv-code-highlighter/trunk/FVCodeHighlighter.php on line 358

disney netpalIt’s not everyday you see a partnership like this. But taking into consideration the current economic times, the popularity of the netbook as well as Disney’s quest to control the digital lives of kids, an ASUS/Disney partnership doesn’t seem too odd after all.

As the name suggest the Disney Netpal is a netbook designed specifically for children. According to Disney, the age range is between 6-12 years-old. The Netpal features an 8.9-inch LCD display, WiFi capabilities and Window’s XP Home “with over 40 parental control options.”

disney netpal

Since this is a netbook marketed to kids Disney took special note of durability. The device not only features a spill proof keyboard, but also ASUS ShockShield data protection which prevents loss of data should the device experience sudden shock such as a fall.

On the design front, the netbook boasts two color choices, “Princess Pink” for the ladies err girls and Magic Blue for the boys which also features “miniature Mickey Mouse icons (the former carries “beautiful pink florals”).

But what makes this little netbook shine is the work Disney has placed under the hood, geared to kids and parents alike. The Netpal features 10 customizable themes derived from popular Disney and Disney/Pixar franchises. These include, Cars, Club Penguin, Disney Classic Characters, Disney Fairies, Disney Princess, Vintage Mickey Mouse, Toy Story, WALL-E, Jonas Brothers and you guessed it Hanna Montana (where’s Lizzie McGuire?) Children will be able to use icons from these themes as email attachments such as signatures.

But Disney has gone even further with the inclusion of software built specifically for the Netpal. An example of this is the Disney Mix which, as the name suggest, is used for music and media management. There is also Disney Pix for photo customization/organization. One of the features of this application is the ability for kids to insert pictures of their faces into Bobblehead software. Another feature (via the Disney Radio Widget) allows children to stream real time music from Disney Radio as well as submit requests for songs. There are also a number of games included (racing, memory, scrapbook etc.)

So far everything that we just covered are things appealing to the kids, for the parents there are (as we mentioned earlier) over 40 control options so parents can protect their children as well as allow limited access to certain things.. For example a parent can pre-select email correspondences, determine which websites their children can visit, as well as a scheduling option so certain features can be automated such as the time of day the child is allowed to go online or play a game etc. And more importantly parents will be able to see not only what their children were doing on the computer but how long they spent.
All in all, this sounds like a perfect idea. While I do not have kids of my own, I have quite a few friends who would be interested in something like this for their son/daughter, and with a starting price of $350 this sounds pretty reasonable. As for a release date, that is set sometime in July
