Then google came out with google maps,online documents and now it is browser.I wold very much like to watch how it fares.
Here is the home page of the site from where one can download Google Chrome,well for the uninitiated that is the name of the google's search engine.
Click here to Download Google Chrome
It is rumored that it heavily borrows features from safari and firefox.Whatever might be the case , i would like to see how does it fare in the heavily competitive market of internet browsers.
Currently there are pretty good browsers out there like firefox and it versions like flock etc,seamonkey,Opera,Safari,netscape and lastly IE and browsers based on it like maxthon.
In my opinion it is very unlikely that it would be all of them in features , speed , security and reliability and usage value.
Not to forget and important aspect like addons for mozilla or rather gecko based browsers like seamonkey and firefox or widgets in case of Opera.Google new browser better be equipped to handle addons like these,otherwise it is highly unlikely that it would survive
For now let us wait and watch.

How to say Bon Appétit in 23 other LanguagesFood for thought:
Probably all languages have formulaic utterances which are said on certain occasions, e.g. French 'bon appétit!' – "good appetite" said to guests at the dinner table, or French 'bon voyage' – "good trip", said to travellers. The fact that some of these have been borrowed into English from other languages, like French, is indicative of the fact that English does not have ready-made concise equivalent formulas for these occasions.
Commonly used substitutes in English are: 'Enjoy your Meal!' or perhaps the host saying: 'Do start' or 'Don't wait'.
Here are some some equivalents in other Languages:
|Korean (transliterated)||Mani deuseyo!|
|Modern Greek (transliterated)||Kale orexe!|
|Norwegian||Vær så god!|
|Russian (transliterated)||Priiatnogo appetita!|
|Yiddish (transliterated)||Est gezunterhayt!|

Yes , people finally safari browser is available for windows and it is damn fast and the UI is very good.I tested it out when it was in beta stages but it crashed a few times (probably because of my low virtual memory). Now in its latest supposedly 3.1 release it is awesome.

How to effectively use this advanced feature

Step 2 :-Click Develop menu
Step 3 :-Things you can do here are many like :-Set Default web browser ,make the safari identify itself as plethora of other browsers like IE7,IE6,Firefox,Opera etc:,also shows how the page will show up on your iphone,

Taking a page from Hollywood science fiction, the Pentagon said Thursday it will
try to shoot down a dying, bus-size U.S. spy satellite loaded with toxic fuel on
a collision course with the Earth. The military hopes to smash the satellite as
soon as next week - just before it enters Earth's atmosphere - with a single
missile fired from a Navy cruiser in the northern Pacific Ocean.
I hope this new procedure if successful would help humanity one day to shoot down asteroids and other bodies when they threaten earth.
Also if man migrates to space like in gundam series and spacenoids drop colonies,asteroids onto earth when we have space wars we can blast them using missiles :-)

Install either firefox or seamonkey(I continue this tutorial with seamonkey here onwards)
Get Firefox at (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/)
Get Seamonkey at(http://www.seamonkey-project.org/)
Get a good download manager like Freedownloadmanager(www.freedownloadmanager.org),DAP
Open seamonkey and go to this url (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/1865)
Install the extension and restart your browser
Go to your favourite web page which plays embedded videos
Open adblock from tools menu.
Click add a filter and open the drop down menu in the new filter wizard
Look for urls which end with .flv,.mkv,.avi or any other media file extensions etc:
Copy that url and add that to your favourite download manager and start downloading your videos.

The trick to solve the problem is to use third party windows folder viewers.I recommend usage of 7zip's(http://www.7-zip.org/) explorer view.
Also it would be better if you could get hold of any file erasing software like Eraser(http://www.heidi.ie/eraser/download.php)
Browse each drive root(Eg :- C;\,d:\ etc) using 7zip explorer window. The culprits are autorun.inf , some *.bat file with name starting with letter 'w'.Delete them using eraser.
Also look into c:\windows\system32 folder where the culprits for disabling access to hidden folders are present.They are called tavo.exe,tavo.dll,kav0.dll,kavo.exe etc and another oddly named exes.It would be a peculiar name.So you can find it easily
To restore the hidden files option use this command in command mode
"regsvr32 /i shell32.dll"
These viruses spread usually through thumb drives.So be careful while using thumb drives in others systems.
If you have any problem in cleaning leave a message in the shoutbox or leave me a message in meebo widget or you can leave your comments here.
P.S. Attempt to do this only if you are fully are aware of the fact that you are not deleting windows system files like ntldr etc:Otherwise you will be in for bigger trouble like forced to reinstall windows.
