Age

I have always believed that age is just for the people around and may be yes, for getting the next job. My funda remains that each year, each birthday ushers  a new year into our life and with it brings a whole new gamut of experiences and learnings. 

So, this Jan,  I turned 27 and I am quite happy of this fact. I am 27, only this one year and will never be at this age ever again. There are positives and negatives of every age, every year and I am here to enjoy the most of the experiences this year. 26 was excellent and went exactly how I could have hoped 🙂

My mobile messages made me write this post. Well, these days I only get messages from Airtel, Samsung and other such companies. Messages from friends are simply numbered, as we prefer talking, when we have the time, than actually texting. Just made me wonder how things change with age.

Today also happens to be two of my darling cousin brothers’ birthday – So wish you both, Ani and Chetan, a great year ahead guys 🙂

And also, Chandu & Prashant’s Second Wedding Anniversary – WOW – Have fun guys!

Chrome

It has been a long time since I went ahead and used I.E or the famous Microsoft Internet Explorer. I.E was the first browser I ever used and back then it took me time to understand what a browser did or how it should work. When I used it recently, it was more of a compulsion, as one of the links I used opened automatically in I.E.

There is simply one word for the whole experience – deplorable!

I.E stinks and a lot at that. Every single second there is a pop up about something or the other – mind you not site pop-ups, but I.E pop-ups. It is simply painful to use it.

Long time ago, I had shifted to Mozilla Firefox and found it much faster and far better than I.E at any rate. The automatic video download add-ons etc, make Mozilla extremely good. Personally, I would use it any day.

But what has taken me completely off my feet is Google’s Chrome. Yes, it is worth every KB of download 🙂 I love the no-nonsense, clutter free interface. Also as Google’s search is something I simply live on, it absolutely convenient to simply type the search requirement in the address bar.

Recently, my sister introduced Chrome to my dad. He is an out and out engineer and all this while tried his hand on ‘hard’ technology and these days he has dedicated to the softer side of technology. Having shifted him from Yahoo to GMAIL and then adding Chrome to his kitty bag, he seems a happy man.

I know, Google should pay me some money for all this advertising ;), but the fact remains that it is:
1) Google’s ease of use
2) Free access
That I feel have won my heart. 🙂

PS: I have been a sloth at posting, I think I figured out a way to get rid of this. Hence, some more post should be on your way.
