Inkscape is freeware. I stumbled upon it last nite while looking for a good program for converting bitmap to vector images. I’m not sure if Inkscape can do this yet, but I found that it’s pretty impressive with text. So here’s a Merry Christmas message after playing around for a night. I’m sure competent masters could do much better with this great program. But here’s my first attempt.
Could it be true? I’m almost starting to like Mozilla Firefox more than my old standard, IE. It’s hard to believe that Firefox is based on the more or less defunked Netscape because that’s one browser that I never, ever liked (well, maybe I did in the very early days when I surfed on the university computers…).
So why do I like Firefox?
Well, it seems to run faster on my laptop. And I prefer the intra-search layout. Plus, the tabs at top are smaller.
Does it allow for the Google browser? This I still have to find out… because I really do need the online form spellcheck!
See my previous blog. I just installed the update for “Writer” and am sold… err, rather… whatever.
I’ve been trying out “Writer” from www.openoffice.org and so far am very impressed.
It’s freeware and sort of fun but not cheesy. A good alternative to those costly commercial word-processors.
