Google Page Speed for Chrome and Online

>Another of my favourite performance tools for reducing every millisecond from loading times is Google Page Speed. Although it’s a little fiddly to install (fiddly in the sense that it takes more than 30 seconds), it’s still a brilliant extension to have for Chrome. If you already have Chrome, take a look over at the […]






YSlow now Available for Opera, Chrome in Beta

>For those of you who have read some of my previous posts, you will know that I’m a big fan of the YSlow extension that until now has only been available for Firefox. For those of you who don’t know what YSlow is, it’s basically a small tool that analyses every part of page performance. […]






Beef up your Security with HTTPS Everywhere

>EFF have released HTTPS Everywhere version 1.0 for Firefox as the project has recently come out of the beta testing stage. The question is, why should you use it and what does it give you? Well, in a nutshell it enables you to browse the web securely, even when you don’t realise that you aren’t […]






If PHP Were British…

>I’ve just come across this great article from AddedBytes which is quite frankly, brilliant! It’s a bit tongue in cheek but very funny if you read through the article. Taken from the article: When Rasmus Lerdorf first put PHP together, he – quite sensibly, despite his heritage – chose not to write it in Greenlandic […]

Recently since Firefox 4, Mozilla appear to be on a quick release cycle which other browsers such as Google Chrome seem to be following. The download is now available on the […]






Internet Explorer 9 Security: Top of the Tests

>In what you could say is a surprising twist of reputation, NSS Labs have revealed what they think is the most secure of all browsers for malware and malicious websites, and yes you’ve guessed it by now, Internet Explorer. One of the many articles can be found over at ZDNet. Anybody who knows the previous chequered […]






Google Chrome Jumps to Second in the UK

>Oh dear, it really hasn’t been a good month or so for Mozilla. Not only do they not have any niche anymore as I discussed recently, but now they have slipped into third place behind Chrome in the UK. According to Statcounter, Google Chrome has now jumped to second place in the so called ‘browser […]






SQL Server and Dynamic Memory

>Since our move to Hyper-V and the addition of Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008r2, the addition of Dynamic memory has helped us vastly manage the resources within our virtual servers much better. For those who don’t know, Dynamic Memory is where the memory utilised in virtual environments can be changed dynamically while the virtual machine is […]
