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:

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)

XDepend is a static analysis tool for JAVA developers that provides 82 code metrics, several real-time code visualization panels, code base snapshots comparison, architectural and quality rules (edition and real-time validation). The tool is a frontend to support the Code Query Language (CQL) to query a code base the same way you would query a relational database. You can using CQL, write and design your own rules and conventions for your code base.
- Analyses your java byte code, your test reports and your source files to extract structural information and 82 base metrics via static analysis.
- Provides complementary and interactive views on the same information. A Tree-Map view helps you easily identify the big one from the small one. The dependency matrix, the graph view and the detailed view help you gain insight in your code base.
- Has a Code Query Language (CQL) is a specific XDepend language, very similar to SQL, that helps you dynamically find what you are looking for.
What is also interesting me a lot is the possibility to make XDepend part of the Maven lifecycle, but that will be part of a new post. For now I am trying to understand the added value on our company software solution Innoveo Skye®

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

Oxygen can also create backup of every changed zip files, as xxxxxxx.zip.bak as shown in the picture above.
