Like nearly everyone else I've been playing a bit with Firefox 3 over the last couple of days and have a confession: I actually like it.
The renderer is ten times better looking and must be twice as actually fast. I don't fully get the new address bar yet but dig it anyway. I really like that the back button is bigger than the forward button. I really like that someone could be bothered to both think of it and code it up. And make it look good.
I guess the next version of Safari will have to ship with Snow Leopard so no big changes till then. I've not moved all my stuff off Safari yet, but I might.
Previous next big things include development of the capture and intermediate compression technology in iShowU-HD; design and implementation of a small advertising network; the refinancing, technical direction, and a lot of the donkey work for Virtual Katy; technical direction, project management and (again) donkey work for VoiceQ; creating code and intellectual property around load balancing that was acquired by Allied Telesis; and the research and an implementation of the h.264 video compression protocol.
