The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Must have FireFox

Every time I get a new PC I try to live just within the standard Windows environment.

But I just can't take Internet Explorer. Specifically, IE6: company IT does not allow IE7 deployment. In any case, I don't think that IE7 fixes this problem.

I have lots of nice pixels on my screen. But this makes standard fontsize hard to read.

I tried increasing Windows display fonysize. But many, many, webpages break.

Moreover, even with the larger fonts, some webpages are still too hard to read.

Gotta have FireFix, with the ability to easily change fonts on a page by page basis. With more font sizes than MS IE supports. Just can't stand this laptop otherwise.
