Creating your own Gwibber theme

One of the social sites I like is twitter.com. I’ve heard about identi.ca but really haven’t tried it yet. Recently, I came across a twitter client that runs on Ubuntu that I liked a lot. It’s called Gwibber. It’s actually not just a Twitter client but also supports identi.ca, laconi.ca, digg, ping.fm, facebook and some other stuff.

It’s very easy to use and can handle multiple accounts so I’d probably try out identi.ca now that I use Gwibber. One of the things I like about Gwibber is that it lets you have your own customized theme. If you know basic HTML and CSS, it’s actually easy to customize.

Firefox users grow at Internet Explorer’s expense

It looks like the hard work of the Firefox community is starting to pay off as the number of the Firefox web browser users have increased considerably in a year’s time. It’s not much of a good news to Microsoft since their web browser, the Internet Explorer, has suffered a declined in usage.

I still see a lot of room for improving the percentages here. For one thing, I see a lot of people still using Internet Explorer version 6.0. This IE version is just way too big a problem with all the holes it has (and all the problems it brings to web site developers). If these people would just start using the Mozilla Firefox web browser instead, I think we can see more substantial increases in the Firefox’s market share. (statistics provided by NetApplications.)

If you are still an Internet Explorer v6 or earlier user, switch to the Mozilla’s Firefox web browser. It a lot more secure than what you’re using right now!
