Netscape 8 Browser

23 Mar

Hearing some praises about Netscape 8.0 beta from a friend, I thought of giving it a try.

The most impressive thing it did:

It blocked a pop-up. Cool. Then it popped up a window informing me that it blocked a pop-up!!! How smart… – the successor to MS Paint

MS Paint has a successor. Browsing through minghong’s blog, I got to know of this wonderful CS design project at Washington State University.

From the website,

Paint.NET is image and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows XP or 2000. Paint.NET is jointly developed at Washington State University with additional help from Microsoft, and is meant to be a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with all Windows operating systems. The programming language used to create Paint.NET is C#, with GDI+ extensions. Paint.NET has many of the powerful features that expensive commercial applications have, including the ability to use layers.
