Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari fight “The Battle of Life”

Its been a good amount of time that I posted something on this blog. No, It’s not true that I was not reading and writing technical posts, but on other medias for sometime; and yes, it was Facebook. 🙂

Now, I am back to Google’s blogger site.

This time its a very Interesting article on browser wars. The modern battle which is expected to cause many browsers struggling for their dailies.

The original link was published in CodeProject‘s daily newsletter. The original site is ArsTechnica. I like the site for blogs posted on it; they are very informative and well structured.

Here’s the link:

Read the article and let me know your views by replying to this post.

Starting from the next post, I am going to put my thoughts on this war.

I will also try to provide neutral view on various internet browsers I have used and will recommend the best one(s) for you.

Thanks for reading!

Drupal – Disable Create Account request by anonymous users

Hi friends,
I wanted to disable ‘Create Account’ option for anonymous user visiting Drupal site.
It is a very basic task; but, important!

Here are the steps:

  • Log in to your Drupal site as with Administrator credentials
  • Go to: Administer –> User Management
  • Select Public registrations: Only site administrators can create new user accounts.
  • Save; and your done. The link to Create Account from site is gone for users other than Administrator.

Have fun with Drupal!

LinkedIn not able to fetch my webmail contacts

Now, its LinkedIn.com, the very much reliable, trusted, and robust web software, doing some goof-ups, and it follows Facebook.com, Blogger.com in the league of buggy web-software. Read my previous posts for the details.

Importing web-mail contacts to LinkedIn.com is not working fine, for me at least, for quite a few months now.

What happens on the page?:

  • URL: Import Contacts and Invite | LinkedIn
  • Enter web-mail details
  • Click on Continue
  • LinkedIn.com reaches to the site in order to find your address-book contacts list
  • A confirmation on the web-mail page to allow LinkedIn.com with access to your contact list
  • Result: Error on the LinkedIn.com page: We’re sorry but there was a problem importing your contacts. Please check back later.

Let me know if you are facing the same problem.

Blogged with the Flock Browser

Update: Today, 28-Dec-2010, is the day, when I do see successful import of my GMail.com contacts to LinkedIn.com. Let’s celebrate. 🙂
Update: Today, 17-Jun-2011, after checking my GMail.com contacts, LinkedIn.com told me that you have 411 friends already on its site. What? Amazing!
