Practice Typing in Firefox

If you are well versed with the position of the keys on your keyboard, and type fairly well, you can improve your typing skills if you are using Mozilla Firefox Browser (the same may be true for Thunderbird and Netscape... I really don't know).

1) Open the webpage (or HTML file or even TXT file) that contains the text that you want to practice typing on.
2) Press Ctrl+F (or click Edit>Find in This Page...)
3) Make sure the cursor is in the text box in the Find bar that appears below. If you want, check "Match case".
4) Find your favorite paragraph and start typing. The paragraph you type will get selected in green according to how much you type. (Note that if the first word of the paragraph is repeated somewhere before it, the paragraph will begin to be selected on completion of second or third word.)
5) When you make a mistake, the paragraph deselects, the Find box becomes red, and a warning appears in the Find bar. Press backspace key until this condition changes back to…

The Book of Mozilla

This fictional "book" follows the theme of The Book of Revelation, the last book in The Holy Bible.

Great! Now I have no HDD!

Yepp! I'm blogging this on my laptop which does not have an HDD!! (HDD = Hard Disk Drive) My hard disk crashed completely for no reason yesterday, and it's been only an year old. Guys, don't make the mistake I made: Don't buy a DELL laptop. I think you shouldn't buy a laptop even, unless you really need one. Stick to the desktop.

Well, if I have no hard disk, how am I able to access the Internet? How am I able to use the computer? I have a GamesKnoppix Linux live CD. A live CD lets you run the OS directly from the CD-ROM. I can't save my preferences, I can't download any programs, even for Linux, coz I have no place to save it. (I can download but I don't know how to install and stuff in Linux, and I can't save permanently as I said before). Well, atleast I can browse the Internet (with Mozilla Firefox 1.0 :( ) and log in to Yahoo & MSN (other popular clients also) using Gaim Instant Messenger. And if it is boring, GamesKnoppix have got a lot of …
