Who Will Win Browser War 2.0 ?

4 comments

Few days back I was in Bangalore for TechEd, and saw the demo of what IE9 could do and started wondering about who will win browser war this time, here is what I think.

Nobody.

We all know who won the first web browser war, but that was then and the real fight was between just two Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator and only one platform.

Now there are 5 major contenders,

  1. Chrome
  2. Firefox
  3. Internet Explorer
  4. Safari
  5. Opera

And two major platforms desktop and mobile.

Personally I am only excited about the fight between Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox, and to see how they push web forward.

So what will really happen?

Well, they are all going to end up following the same common standards for which HTML 5 is the blanket term. There will be some hiccups/incompatibilities before this happens, but it will happen.

To me this is the only outcome that makes the most economic sense, as they(Microsoft, Google, Apple) all move there native application to web they will want to make sure that the features they are going to use is available on all the browsers as part of standards.

While right now focus of war is on desktop browser in a year or two it will shift to mobile(phones and tablets) and this is when it will become even more interesting.

What do you think, do you really see a single winner in this war of web?

Vodafone Steals WebRupee’s Font Without Acknowledging It!

3 comments

Font from: http://www.vodafone.in/_layouts/1033/styles/css/rupee/rupee.ttf

Bitten by the MNP bug, I was checking out some GSM provider’s website and what they have to offer. While browsing Vodafone’s website it was really nice to see that they used the Rupee Symbol instead of writing “Rs”. Out of curiosity, I started checking how was the symbol displayed and found that the stylesheet looked like the one from WebRupee with few changes:
1) Licence Removed (We had Apache Version 2 license)
2) “WebRupee” changed to “rupee”
3) Links to font file on their server
4) Almost all css same(even the whitespaces) except for the places where they had added some small styling information.

I was still unsure whether the font was copied, so I downloaded the font file to check. And the above screenshot verified it.

So they not only stole the files but were devious enough to change the name. They should really learn from railtourismindia.com, blanketofrelief.org who has been using it without changing the name.

Not only them, rimweb.com has been using it from their own servers, but have left the Licences untouched.

Below are the screenshot of css file contents.

Now Add Links Via Twitter

leave a comment

Now we have one more way for you to add articles to your digest. We can now pick your links from your favourite tweets and add it to your digest.

You can specify your twitter handle on the right side in your dashboard.

twitter-handleWhen you add your twitter handle for the first time we will only import links from first 20 favourite tweets, and from then on, we will keep adding new links that you add to your favourite list.

Only thing you need to remember is that, for now we can only pick links, if your tweets are public.

This is just a start, a deep integration with twitter is coming, meanwhile do let us know your feedback so that we can keep improving it.
