Who says Firefox is secure?

I have received some info on browser security vulnerabilities reported by thier developers.

Excerpt from pcmag.com’s security watch newsletter:

Vendor-Reported Browser Security Vulnerabilities from January 1, 2005 through May 23, 2005
Different vendors are more granular in their classification of bugs, and the classification of a bug as “critical” is also from the vendor.

Internet Explorer – 8 Total, 6 Critical
Firefox – 41 Total, 10 Critical
Opera – 5* Total, 0 Critical
Safari – 4 Total (Apple doesn’t classify severity of security vulnerabilities)

Lets see how IE7 will address security.

idea: gmail alert service

This is a suggestion i have just posted to gmail guys:
—————–

Hi gmail,

This is something came to my mind so felt I should share the thought so someone can benefit from it.

The idea:
On gmail, there can be a customizable alert service which can send mail arrival notification emails to other designated email address(es) or cell-box(es).

The notification can be through filters (from specific email), separate notification on each email or even a summary notification every N hours listing all emails received during the interval.

Benefits:
1. I am a corporate user having a corporate email as [email protected], where my email client polls every 5/10 minutes. I also have a personal account with gmail. A gmail alert to my corporate account can notify me that I have new email on my personal account at gmail.

2. I am online with my MSN/Yahoo messenger and a messenger pop-up notifies me of a gmail alert notifying me that my gmail has an email.

3. When I’m offline, a gmail alert on my cell-box will let me know that I have mail on gmail.

This is a very commercial idea, and I am thinking to get it patent, so I can get some pennies out of thought works ;).

Hope to hear from gmail guruz.

Not found blogger i want!

i’ve been testing out many blogger windows client, but unable to find one with more features i need.

JetBlogger was good simple. w.blogger also have some cool features. but not all that i’m looking for :|

so, still on my search for good blogger windows client.

i’d like to mention one thing that i’ve found in almost all blogger clients so far is ability to upload images/files to FTP server. good functionality, but what if a client supports image upload to helo.com or flickr.com.

may be i’ll create one for myself if i get some time, i’ve pointed out all the features. so when i get some time to play around, i’ll definitely try to create one ;)

I’ll post its review after a few days testing. its small and fast. and almost what i was looking for.

but I’ll found all about it after a few days regular use.
