Why I prefer Firefox Quantum over Google Chrome: A perspective.

Hi all!

Today I will be just writing about why I prefer the new Fire Fox quantum over google chrome. As a IT Student, I try to keep up to date to tech news and any new products that may come out. Here’s a quick comparison between the two browsers

Chrome

  • Simple neat design
  • Fast loading
  • Slow start up
  • Saves all recent visted page in history (longer to find)
  • No drag-and-drop for settings icon,etc

FireFox Quantum

  • Great feel with the new design
  • Fast start-up
  • Faster loading (60% faster)
  • 30% more memory efficient
  • Saves all the recent visited pages on new tab section (and in history)
  • Able to drag-and-drop customize to my liking
  • In-built screenshot
  • In-built send-to-device tab (I can send a tab to my IPhone’s Firefox Quantum)
  • Search to multiple search-engines (url input)

I really really really love how FireFox feels and works out for me. Start-up time is super important to me because I love to quickly start my browser use it, then close it and the cycle repeats whenever I need to use my browser again. Chrome is just getting slower over time. I’d recommend you to try out Firefox Quantum!.

Development Update 1.0

Hello all!

I’ll also be updating my blog every now and then to update my lecturers, and anyone who may be following my partner and I as we develop this product. For this week, It was sort of simple and easy-going as we didn’t do much. We had put in so much time to just reading up and understanding the different languages we required. For sending and validating forms, we needed to learn and get the gist of PHP, a server-side scripting language that’d allow us to validate and register the user on a server.

Furthermore, from my previous experience with MySQL and some database in school, I knew that we had to store the data somewhere. We have decided to go with MySQL instead because of the many various perks and advantages it holds over other databases. For example, I can use a administration tool  (PHPmyAdmin) to execute commands and queries to administrate my database.

This week, I have also completed a mere small bit of the registration/sign up form. Dave and I have decided to work on a login section before working on the actual idea. This will give us some experience in dealing with the various HTML Methods (GET/POST) and PHP before working on pushing out the data through APIs from the various social medias.

Programming and the upcoming tests!

Hello all!

This is my second blog entry and although I’m not too good at writing… I try my best to express my thoughts and share various things. This week is going to be a busy week. I have two practical tests this week!

One for Programming and the other for networking. I love these two modules. I am pretty excited to get down to writing code. I hope the coming test doesn’t kill me though. I’m thinking of writing some code to practice and prepare for Thursday. Networking is going to be intriguing and enjoyable too.

I’m also working on a project for my Portfolio module, It’s been a steady design so far, but some hard work needs to be put in. I can’t wait! Other than that, I’ve been on Netflix watching Marvel’s new series “The Punisher”. It’s pretty cool to watch the vigilante going against everyone to get revenge. That’s about it for the past two days, I hope you guys enjoyed reading.

Hello world!

Hello all!

Writing down your thoughts is a good way to keep note of things! During my GCE O Levels examinations… I used WordPress to help keep my thoughts within the cloud. I thought it was a good way to share what I’d learnt every day after school, and a great way i could share some really fun music!

I remember having a “MOTD” which stands for Music of the day in my case. It was a fun experience.  Now… I’m actually required to blog for one of my modules in polytechnic! What a cool and exciting experience.

I feel that I’m more of a changed person now, in the sense that I finally understand things that people actually do! Putting myself in their shoes help me realize that sometimes they can come upon making a hard decision. I also get to express myself when I blog. I hope you enjoy my blog 🙂
