Windows Vista: The Complete Guide: ActiveX in IE7 on Top Of Vista

The browser wars are certainly not over. Despite many years of fight, the two major browsers (Firefox and IE7) are still disputing the hearts and eyes of Internet users.

The latest version of Microsoft IE7 certainly incorportated a lot of goodies. Tabbed browser, smart view of tabs in the background, and updated security.

However, Fiforex is not giving up. The main advances have been in powerful ad-ons that can make the browser to do much more.

Two recent updates from the web. A good discussion of activeX on IE7 can be found in the article Windows Vista: The Complete Guide: ActiveX in IE7 on Top Of Vista.

Also, a nice comparison of IE7 and Firefox can be found on our hubpage website.

Another thing that I have been looking into during this week is UML code generation tools. UML is great to explain your ideas about code design, but I hate the fact that there are not many really good tools to write UML code. Since programers would benefit tremendously from this, I assume that they should be interested in developing good UML tools.

I found a program called BOUML that is really fast and feature complete with respect to UML. I know it is as feature reach as Rose Garden, or even posseidon, but at least it is free and it can run fast.

This week I felt the need to come back and see what is going on in Windows world. Although I love UNIX and Macs, I feel that it is important to keep current with what is going on in the Windows world. If not any other reason, because you can write software that really has a LARGE number of users (number count too...).

I am checking the new tools on .NET (right now I am looking at .NET 2.0). I had some experience with .NET 1.0, but I spent too much time far from this to know what is really going on on .NET 2.0. I hope I will learn a lot and also hope to be able to help other people trying to learn.

Hi, I am back after a long vacation :-)). I am still working with mac os X, and now more than ever! I learned a few tricks on cocoa programming that I think you may like. I will try to share some of this "great knowledge" with you in the next few posts.

The new version of Mac OS X is out. Grab it fast, because some security problems were found in the previous version.

Creating Matematical Graphics

Apple mac Tigger comes with a new program called grapher. The program creates all kinds of nice mathematical formulas, such as 2 and 3-d graphs of polynomials, sine, cosine, differential equations, implict equations, vector fields, etc. I think it is great. For me it is not better because I couldn't find a way of creating graphics from external data.
