Browser Updates: Firefox 3.6 and Internet Explorer Fix!

Firefox is Now Personal

Firefox 3.6 is already available for download! Firefox 3.6 is the latest released version of the popular browser by the open source advocate Mozilla.org. Firefox 3.6 has several major improvements over its predecessor, Firefox 3.5. Most notable of these is the official incorporation of the Personas, a former Firefox add-on that customizes the look and feel of your browser. You can now change your browser looks in just a single click on the mouse. See the screenshot of my Avatar theme below.


Personas theme gallery are available at www.getpersonas.com.




Performance Improvements

Early tests showed improvements in performance comparable to Google Chrome 2.0 but still behind the fastest browser today, Google Chrome 3.0. Firefox 3.6 also improved the support for the emerging HTML 5 standard.



Video browsing is also improved. You can now right click onto a certain videos and switch it to full screen.

For more information on Firefox 3.6, see the release notes at www.mozilla.com.




Internet Explorer Fix is out!

The culprit in the security breach that caused the heated friction between Google and the Chinese government has been identified as the flaw on Microsoft’s browser Internet Explorer. Yesterday, Microsoft made available the fix on the world’s most popular web browser ahead of their promised schedule of release.

The fix can be downloaded through automatic updates on all computers running on Windows. This update is “labeled” as critical to all IE 5, 6, 7 and 8 versions.

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
