  4. Mozilla Release Firefox Quantum

    yap, just toying around this new version, pretty impressive
  5. 2x faster and 30 % less memory Mozilla today delivered a re-engineered Firefox, branded "Quantum," that it claims is twice as fast as just a few months earlier, and unveiled a re-drawn UI (user interface) with minimalist leanings. The browser maker also dumped Yahoo as Firefox's default search engine in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere, to return to Google, its partner - and primary financier - before a falling out three years ago. "It's by far the biggest update we've had since we launched Firefox 1.0 in 2004," Mark Mayo, the Mozilla executive who oversees the browser The new browser's official designation is Firefox 57, just another in an every-six-week series of upgrades. Until now, Mozilla has always numbered, never named, its browser releases. Firefox Quantum boasts a revamped rendering engine with a new CSS (cascading style sheets) layout engine. Along with other components, the engine was written in Rust, a programming language that originated in Mozilla's research group. The result: a significant speed increase. "Firefox Quantum is over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, built on a completely overhauled core engine with brand new technology stolen from our advanced research group," said Mayo, who credited the rendering engine's use of multiple processor cores for the boost. Other changes ran down the page and onto the next in Firefox's release notes, and included active tab prioritization and a switch-over from legacy add-ons to those built using the WebAssembly API (application programming interface). Quantum also sports a new UI, the first major redesign since 2011's Firefox 4. The UI and user experience (UX) changes, derived from an ongoing project tapped as "Photon," emphasize speed improvements, both real and simply perceived. The UI matches the streamlined austerity of rivals such as Google's Chrome and Microsoft's Edge. Firefox 57 combines the address and search bars - for new installations at least; existing users who miss the latter can restore it - reduces the clutter at the top of the window, and debuts a reworked new tab page. Almost lost among the visual and technological changes was a simultaneous announcement that after three years, Firefox is switching back to Google as the default search engine in the U.S., Canada, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Other markets remain with their previous defaults, including Yandex (in Russia and Belarus) and Baidu (People's Republic of China). "This is part of our ongoing search strategy, announced in 2014 to evaluate and select the best search experience in each region as opposed to having a single global default," asserted Denelle Dixon, Mozilla's chief legal officer, in a separate blog post. That was a remarkably terse explanation after the way Mozilla and Yahoo publicized their partnership in November 2014, when they signed a multi-million dollar deal that was to run five years. In 2015, for example, Yahoo paid Mozilla about $375 million, or approximately $100 million more than Google laid out in 2013, the last full year of its Firefox arrangement. What Dixon left unsaid was reported last year, when Recode and the New York Times claimed that the 2014 Yahoo-Mozilla contact gave Mozilla the right to switch to another search provider if Yahoo was sold. It was, to Verizon, which this summer completed a $4.5 billion acquisition of the former Internet giant. According to those news reports, Mozilla would still be due money, perhaps more than $1 billion although the amount was unclear, for the remaining two years of the contract. Mozilla's return to Google as the default in the U.S. and Canada - the same markets Yahoo had sewed up with its 2014 pact - implied that it had walked away from the latter search engine. The Quantum project, the Photon UI overhaul and last year's move to make Firefox a multiple-process browser have been crucial to Mozilla's recovery strategy. Firefox once accounted for a quarter of the world's user share, but dipped as low as 8% in the summer of 2016. Since then, it's scratched back to 13% as of October. But will Firefox's remodel be enough to cause its share to, say, overtake Microsoft's declining Internet Explorer/Edge combination (with a 19.7% share last month), or erode Chrome's dominance (59.8%)? "No. I just can't see it at this point," said Jack Gold, principal analyst at J. Gold Associates. "The dominance of Google on Android, of Safari on iOS, Internet Explorer and Chrome on PCs, there's just not room for another browser. It would have to be so unique." And Firefox's Quantum upgrade isn't that, Gold argued. "I just don't see how they can come back. It's a futile effort." With virtually no relevance in mobile, even with Android and iOS versions of Firefox available, and failed campaigns to build its own mobile OS or transform that into an Internet-of-things (IoT) platform, Mozilla has little strategic wiggle room. "In a year from now, it will be the same all over again," Gold said, referring to Firefox's minor player status. DOWNLAOD : https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
  6. Today, we are thrilled to unveil the next step in our journey for Windows Server graphical management experiences. In less than two weeks at Microsoft Ignite, we will launch the Technical Preview release of Project “Honolulu”, a flexible, locally-deployed, browser-based management platform and tools. Project “Honolulu” is the culmination of significant customer feedback, which has directly shaped product direction and investments. With support for both hybrid and traditional disconnected server environments, Project “Honolulu” provides a quick and easy solution for common IT admin tasks with a lightweight deployment. This blog post continues our recent “sneak peek” series, and we highly recommend “Honolulu” as a graphical management solution for Windows Server, version 1709, and several other versions of Windows Server too! Yes, we (still) love GUI tools! If you’re a longtime Windows Server IT admin, you probably “grew up with” and still regularly use MMC and other in-box GUI tools for some management and administrative tasks. You probably also have some level of PowerShell expertise since scripting and automation have become increasingly important as our industry evolves and embraces cloud-scale concepts and deployments. For scripting and automation, Windows Server has done a great job of providing PowerShell coverage, while for graphical management, cloud-hosted solutions like Operations Management Suite (OMS) are providing added value for larger scale and hybrid environments. Still, IT admins have repeatedly told us that PowerShell is necessary but not sufficient, and that Windows Server ease-of-use is still largely dependent on GUI tools for core scenarios and new capabilities. Indeed, as you’ll see with Project “Honolulu”, we will continue to invest in GUI tools. Whether it’s for scenarios where GUI has an inherent advantage like data visualization or comparison, or for ad hoc configuration or troubleshooting, we will evolve and expand core GUI tools that are complementary to investments in PowerShell and larger scale management solutions like OMS. Modernized, simplified, integrated, and secure experiences Project “Honolulu” is the next step in our journey to deliver on our vision for Windows Server graphical management experiences. Our vision starts with modernizing both the platform and the tools. For us, modernizing the platform means giving users greater flexibility in how and where they deploy and access the tools. Modernizing the platform also enables partners, both internal and external, to leverage and easily build on top of a growing ecosystem of tools and capabilities. For platform adoption and growth, it means supporting a reasonable set of existing Windows Server versions, not just the latest, and licensed as part of Windows Server with no extra cost. Modernizing the graphical management platform reduces the friction of creating modernized admin tools. Our vision continues with simplifying the experience where appropriate. Deployment is quick and easy, with no Internet dependency. Tools are familiar, and cover the core set of administrative tasks for troubleshooting, configuration, and maintenance. Some Windows Server capabilities, which were previously manageable only via PowerShell, now also have an easy-to-use graphical experience. Our vision also includes integrating the management experiences in compelling ways. Each tool is available not just together in one place, but can be filtered to show contextual data inside of another tool. One tool can link to another with context, and these links are just URLs which can be launched from external sources. The architecture also allows for cloud integration in the future. Finally, our vision is to deliver a secure platform, helping solutions be secure by default, and optimizes support for security solutions. A future blog post in this series will describe in more detail what we’re doing with security and assurance. Project “Honolulu” Technical Preview – coming (very) soon! By late next week we’ll publish the Project “Honolulu” Technical Preview package for everyone to install and use. We’ll update this blog post with the download link once it’s available. Stay tuned! [Update September 22] As promised, here’s the follow-up announcement with download link. If you are registered to attend Ignite, we invite you to come visit our station in the Hybrid Platform area of the expo, and join us at our breakout session where we’ll provide a lot more details about Project “Honolulu”, along with plenty of demos: Discover what’s new with Windows Server management experiences (Monday, September 25, 2017 at 4:00 PM, OCCC W224) The screenshot below is a sneak peek at the scope of core tools in the Server Manager solution in Project “Honolulu”: source : https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2017/09/14/sneak-peek-4-introducing-project-honolulu-our-new-windows-server-management-experience/

  8. Convert IP adress to localisation

    you need geoIP lookup tools, but for 2000 IP addresses it will be huge task as I know for free geo lookup limited until hundred ip per request anyone have free geoIp lookup untill thousand data?
  9. I think devs tend to follow microsoft direction, they use ribbon after MS introduce those UI in their office suite yap, arcgis users need to learn again the menu, ribbon concept make menu appear and disappeared based on data context, so its confusing
  10. do not rely on one software at least 2 software, and one of them is open source your life will be save as I got free license from ITC later this month, arcgis pro still slow as snail, too much license check in here and there, ESRI definitely need to improve performance for this new software I hope maybe 2 or 3 more major release and it will be ready and the ribbon menus, yeah definitely remember me of Mapinfo , ahahaha I dont have much time play with this crap, as I try on the first time and see the sluggishness , I just uninstall it and install ArcGIS Desktop
  11. until then, we can enjoy our arcgis desktop
  12. the Earth is Flat and The Proof is Real?

    but if you insist discussing flat earth it would be amusing for this community, you can go on
  13. the Earth is Flat and The Proof is Real?

    WTF, save your time from this illogical thing use it for more useful things
  14. all done btw for rodog there are another username called rodog1, is it yours? I will combine both of them,
