I wasn´t very suprised about it – but I was very suprised about the way they do it. They seem to believe in my personal needs for a browser : “It has to be rock-solid”.
Take a look at the great comic (1st link) and the information in the blog (2nd link) for more technical stuff. The most interesting things :
- every tab will have a separate process (yesssssssssssss !!!)
- the browser will feature a self developed Java VM (V8), that compiles the source to machine code and executes it directly on the machine (so it will probably be much faster then nowadays VM´s)
I´ve been damn lazy over the last weeks, but should get a little bit better…
After some time of thinking I got my GARMIN ForeRunner 205 – a GPS based training device for walking, hiking and biking with support for navigation and route tracking.
The first test seems promising, a short track around Ilmenau looks like this :
Short track around Ilmenau
A little part of the route is missing and right now I´m not quite sure if I did something wrong or the device did. But I´ll find out in the future.
What really sucks is the GARMIN Training Center Software, totally unprofessional designed (installing in a non-selectable path – C:\Garmin, adding a service without asking, only worked after downloading the newest version from the website).
But the 3D Route Builder – http://www.HybridGeoTools.com really helped me through – and the basic version is free for personal use.
So expect a very cool bike trail in a few days (and some pics of the device).
I did it. After years of thinking and months of doubt now it´s here – my first blog universum. And you want to know about my motivation ? (I guess you don´t…)
(But wouldn´t be a blog if I´d mind…)
