Waking up to a new roll out of WordPress, version 3.3 is now available for automatic update from the WordPress dashboard. Now, I actually hate going through and updating websites, inevitably something breaks, with a theme, plugin, or something. However, this morning I decided to jump in head first and see exactly how much another WP update can rock my world, at least after 5 mins of playing.
Oddly enough I’m writing this post using Google Chrome, but only after I put on my french maid outfit and dusted that Chrome icon off. To be honest, since it doesn’t offer any quality Add-Ons as of yet, it’s fell by the wayside. I’m surprised that Google hasn’t done more to encourage developers to create Chrome Add-Ons, at least in any capacity to compete with FireFox.
Searching for a solution to the Chrome add on problem I did come across a site called My Chrome Addons. This site is the closest thing to a repository of useful tools for Chrome as it gets, but seems to focus more on themes than actual tools that increase user experience. In it’s raw form Chrome has yet to do anything that FireFox can’t do better.
Furthermore, it’s just not as stable as originally advertised. Well, just typing this post it’s crashed on me completely, not just a few functions. I’ve never had any problems using FireFox, in regards to stability, other than it’s wildely free roaming memory consumption. Hell, this many revisions later I’d hope they would have that fixed by now.
As mentioned previously, I am writing this blog post in the Chrome browser, but it almost feels unnatural. Generally when researching blog posts I’ll have multiple FireFox windows and tabs open. Chrome doesn’t offer one-click opening of multiple instances of itself. So for now, Google Chrome will remain a novelty icon, a program I dust off every so often to see if any progress has been made.
BuildANicheStore.com has just reopened after a little remodeling and now they are offering all kinds of new tools and features to sink your teeth into. First, as a member you will enjoy a newly updated forum, which will be better moderated, structured, and hopefully more useful and worth the price of admission. All BANS purchasers receive full forum access and only BANS owners are able to view and post in the forums.
In addition, there is a new tab at the top of your members only BANS page, which is ‘TEMPLATES’. These BANS templates are great, not cheap, not rehashed, but actually quality templates with features. This will help with the laced thin affiliates sprouting up everywhere, but will also help those looking for cheap place holders that look good.
