I’ve been using Firefox 3 for some time, mostly after I discovered some great plugins and themes for it. The best plugin was Firebug, and although at later stages a similar function became available in Safari, I kept using the browser I knew best. Changing browsers is not something you should take on lightly as it is nowadays your environment for a lot of your computer usage.

With Safari 4 I decided to retry Apple’s default Mac browser, because of the nice new technologies it provides (HTML 5, web font rendering, newest CSS features), and because it will then render on my Mac exactly like it does on my iPhone, even syncing bookmarks between them. So I set out to try it, and a couple of weeks later, I decided to not go back.

It works then – but what were my most missed Firefox features and most positive Safari experiences? Here’s a list of differences that mattered to me:


Just some new photos.

A new version of the theme for this site has been activated. The new layout has two sidebars on the frontpage, so that more relevant and ‘current’ information can be shown. The entire site therefore has been widened. The sidebar style has been updated to be less conspicuous.

I’ve updated the stylesheet and cleaned it throughout, so the site is now also IE 8 compatible.

Officially the most annoying forum reply if you finally, through extensive googling, found a topic with just *that* question you have been walking around with for ages:

“oh no, not that question again, that’s been answered hundreds of times already. Please search for already existing answers elsewhere.”

This is a combination of three photos I made on the Top of Tirol (3210m) on the Stubaier Gletscher in Austria. It provides a view over the Alpes in the direction of Italy.

Very good and clear visual explanation of the financial system in the US and the build-up to the credit crisis.


Last week I finally got the long awaited replacement for my previous car. It is shiny black, and I really love the looks of it. Of course, it drives very nice as well.

For the sixth time we went to Essen to visit the biggest boardgame fair of the world, Spiel ’08. We were there for two days, saw lots of new and old, cheap and expensive, and interesting and boring games. Played some there, and bought quite some to take home with us. Here are some photos.

Do you know that feeling that you’re still waiting for summer to arrive, but then all of a sudden it’s autumn already? Well, there’s no mistaking about it – leaves are falling, temperatures drop, mushrooms appear in the park, and… well, wintersport has been booked!
