Computer software, or just software, is a collection of computer programs and related data that provides the instructions for telling a computer what to do and how to do it. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software]
I am running with Firefox 3.0 beta 4 since it is available (so since 2 weeks) and the progress made concerning memory management are so huge that you cannot start using it NOW, especially if you are always keeping Firefox open for hours or days. I am now able to say that Firefox is on par with my other favorite browser Opera 9.5, speed and rendering time are very close. I still prefer Opera through as I always keep 25 tabs open.
It is time now for me to test the Beta 5!
Firefox 3 Beta 5 is available in 45 languages as a public preview release intended for developer testing and community feedback. It includes new features as well as dramatic improvements to performance, memory usage and speed. You can download it HERE
Why You should not use Firefox 3.0 Beta?
For all developer out there reading my blog, I recommend You to read what the Firefox team has done to track down all memory leaks and reduce memory usage, this article is worth reading!
Download Firefox Beta5 NOW:
It can't be that my anti virus want to scan my disk every day (default settings) and take 23 hours to do so.
At the end, these anti virus are just sucking my CPU brute power (peak 20%) and worst of all a good part of IO
power, and trust me windows IO are just hilarious compared to Linux, try eclipse under Linux it just fly!
Pictured is AVG but this post is not targeted against it. They are ALL ridiculously slow.
Windows just can't protect itself from Internet and mitigate attacks that it need a range of 3rd
party software...sucking power and my time. We are far away from the Internet OS
All my plug-ins are still working after the update to the latest version, my homepage is loading faster (as fast as in Google chrome)
After the update you’ll be redirected to this page http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.5/whatsnew/ where you’ll be able to test a video embedded in HTML 5.

This solution is valid if you do not want to carefully optimize your site, and it come for now at huge initial CPU costs till the cache is filled up. The load on my server has proven to be unacceptable (for me) and I was forced to switch it off. But it may work on your server depending on the page size, number of visitors. Authors are working hard and communicating a lot on the official mailing list to reduce that load and improve the code in the coming weeks
mod_pagespeed is the latest addition to our family of products, performing on-the-fly optimization in the Apache™ 2 HTTP Server. It provides webmasters and web developers that manage their Apache 2 configuration with technology that applies Page Speed performance best practices automatically. Webmasters can get the benefits of the optimizations without having to manually going back and fixing the performance issues that Page Speed detects.
If you trust me, you can download the library module libmod_pagespeed.so for Apache 2.2
Check before installing the MD5 keys of this file
# md5sum -b mod_pagespeed.so 187995e3623a222ec5b54c331ee7ffaa *mod_pagespeed.so
If it matches, drop it into your Apache library folder /usr/lib64/apache2/
On my OpenSuSE system, I was forced to install first
zypper in gcc-c++
you should get after a successful build
Install the module library
cp ./out/Release/libmod_pagespeed.so /usr/lib64/apache2/mod_pagespeed.so
After installing mod_pagespeed, it can be customized and configured by editing the Apache configuration file
so you can run
# cp ./out/Release/install/common/pagespeed.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/pagespeed.conf
Create some directories
# mkdir /var/mod_pagespeed/ # mkdir /var/mod_pagespeed/cache/ # mkdir /var/mod_pagespeed/files
Has to be writtable by apache
chown -R wwwrun:www /var/mod_pagespeed/
and finally restart apache
There is a lot of available settings that are all well explained in this page http://code.google.com/speed/page-speed/docs/using_mod.html
Here is my /etc/apache2/conf.d/pagespeed.conf stripped of all comments as an example:
LoadModule pagespeed_module /usr/lib64/apache2/mod_pagespeed.so
# This page lets you view statistics about the mod_pagespeed module.
Order allow,deny # You may insert other "Allow from" lines to add hosts you want to # allow to look at generated statistics. Another possibility is # to comment out the "Order" and "Allow" options from the config # file, to allow any client that can reach your server to examine # statistics. This might be appropriate in an experimental setup or # if the Apache server is protected by a reverse proxy that will # filter URLs in some fashion. Allow from localhost SetHandler mod_pagespeed_statistics
You may be forced to remove mod_deflate
You can disable mod_pagespeed by adding in the url ?mod_page_speed=0

There is a lot of shareware and freeware (jEdit, Notepad++) to do complex search and replacement in files but none is supporting these kind of operations in zip files spread across many subdirectories. Luckily Oxygen Editor can
Use the Menu "Find" and select "Replace in Files" or use the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+H
Oxygen can also create backup of every changed zip files, as xxxxxxx.zip.bak as shown in the picture above.
GUI FTP client for X Window System (looks like WFTP old windows ftp client) but it is also working nicely.
