Side Note: I know, the coffee pot’s been empty for a while, as I keep writing simple software posts. Give me some time and soon we can get back to deeper things inshaAllah.
In one of my earliest Kudos posts I had written about MS Blog Writer and how it was a nice blog writer.
Today, I am reverting that. Honestly I am reaching the limits of my patience with how bulky MS software is becoming.
I installed IE7 recently and its slowed down my internet experience so much with its bulk and memory leaks that I’ve almost completely shifted to Firefox (which I never felt like doing for IE6).
Every morning I’ve read and replied to all of my emails over Zimbra i the time it takes to load Outlook which I load for another account.
I dont even want to think of installing Office 2007 or Vista. The graphical tweaks dont matter to me as much as performance on my laptop and work is becoming busy enough that I cant afford the ‘4 seconds here’, ’10 seconds there’ in waiting for MS software.
In all of this frustration, there is a ray of hope.
Enter the “Performancing” add-on for firefox, which is a beautiful blog writer, and a recommended must-have for fellow bloggers.
It’s fast, and always-in-your-browser so you can quickly copy paste or blog about posts. Best of all is the “split-screen” view in the browser so you can look at the page you are writing about.
Go check it out. Uninstall Blog Writer and the MS .NET framework from your PCs and switch to firefox.
