Icone maxi per Google OS

Da Google Docs verso Google Drive puntando a Google OS

Via Google Operating System

The new interface of Google Docs, which is slowly rolled out to all users, brings the service one step closer to an online storage service. The “items by type” menu replaced “PDFs” with “Files”, suggesting that Google Docs will allow users to upload any type of files.

Google Docs also added the advanced search options that are available in Gmail:

  • exact phrase matching (“todo list”)
  • negative matching (summer -trip)
  • disjunctive matching (budget OR invoice)
  • built-in labels (is:starred, is:hidden)
  • collaborators: to find the documents shared by Michael Robinson, you need to search for: from:[email protected], assuming that’s his email address. The problem is that you need to know the email address, since the operator doesn’t support (partial) names.

La nuova battaglia dei browser con IE in caduta libera

Via techcrunch

The new browser wars on on. More than a decade after Microsoft killed off Netscape with Internet Explorer, competition in the browser market has never been stronger. Just last week, Mozilla released Firefox 3.5, which has now been downloaded nearly 14 million times. Earlier in June, Apple released Safari 4. In March, Microsoft introduced Internet Explorer 8, and Google came out with a speedier beta of its Chrome browser.

Some early data is coming in showing relative market share and how fast people are upgrading. If you look at the chart above from Statcounter, it indicates that since March Internet Explorer has lost 11.4 percent market share to other browsers. That is the combined market share of IE8, IE7, and IE6. Certainly IE8 (the light blue line) has been growing strong since its release last March, capturing 16.7 percent of the market as of July 4.
