hot ideas for free

Posted by happyhardik on Jan 18, 2011 in Technology

Sometimes, I let my mind wonder and when it starts doing that, it generates great ideas!
But as you know every idea could not be great, than how do you decide weather an idea is great or not?

That was a wonderful question but here we are to discuss something else. The idea that I got today is of developing a new wonderful software which I am going to share with you.

One thing that I know, success of every software (or anything that is produced) depends on the “need” of it in the market and I am sure, this could potentially have a great demand and that is why I called it a great idea.
But why I am not doing it myself, simply because I don’t have the time and money to invest in it, so I am sharing it with everyone.

Some of you must have heard of google translation, this service lets you translate any text into/from a lot of languages. It can even translate a web page. If we apply the same logic to a firefox (browser) plugin, which could remember your language preferences than you could surf the web in your own language. This could be very helpful for non-english speakers. The biggest benefit of this plugin would go to the web developers as they dont need to worry about multi language support for their websites.

If you could use google translation services for this, than you could be up and running in no time! 🙂

First time disappointed by firefox

Posted by happyhardik on Jul 29, 2010 in Technology

I have been a fan of firefox since the first day when I used it. I have never turned back to IE or any other browser after that.

Recently I learned about HTML 5, which has a video tag “in built” which means, browsers will be able to play video natively without requiring flash. No more flash video players required. But this is still in its initial phase of development and in beta. Very less browsers support this right now so its tough to use it.

But Firefox and Chrome are the first browsers to start supporting it. While IE will be having it from IE9.
Today while trying to open a screen cast on, firefox was not able to load the video, which kept me wondering what went wrong, so I tried to use chrome and that also did not helped. Than I switched to IE to check and the video work and I was like.. … ….

Than I checked and found that screen cast uses HTML5 to render video, which is supported by Firefox and chrome, with bugs! (as of July 2010) while IE 8 has no support for it, so it loaded the video in Flash, which worked. 🙂

And for the first time I had to switch to IE from firefox.. 🙁
