Safari or FireFox2 on MacOSX

11/08/06 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet

Since getting my MacBook Pro, I've been using Safari. When necessitated by a web site not supporting Safari, I would use Firefox 1.5 on SLED10 under Parallels.

I know many folk like Camino, but I was pretty happy with Safari. Many things, though not all, seemed to go even faster in Safari vs. Firefox under my old Windows Dell laptop. I really like the true integration of applications that Apple has in its Tiger apps. Live spell checks in forms and the character palette come to mind.

But when Firefox v2 for MacOSX came out a few weeks ago, I installed the same day. I haven't hit an incompatible web site yet AND it seems to render even faster than Safari, especially on our blogs' administrative anti-spam page. The integration seems to be there as well, though I'm not sure if the Firefox spell checker uses the MacOSX spell checker dictionary or not, but the character palette works. My extensions [now called add-ons] that I used previously in Firefox all work.

Firefox is now my main web browser again.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
