The artist has also done Google Chrome and Apple Safari in addition to the Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera web browser logos. All the popular web browsers have been created on nails – geeky art!
A lively stop motion animation of how ‘6 men’ create the Chrome web browser logo with Lego bricks in ‘1 field’.
Iconpillows at Etsy sells pillows of popular icons and logos in the form of pillows. Though a tad expensive at $20 a pop, I love the iTunes and Power Button pillows.
A few young men spent days in planning and creating the Firefox logo in a field. The result – Firefox crop circle which is can be seen in Google maps (link above). And obviously they filmed the entire procedure. You can check how they made the Firefox crop circle on Youtube. Since this is a handy work of humans, I’m sure the stalks were broken and not bent!
The Internet Explorer cake sent to Mozilla by the I.E. team congratulating the former for the launch of Firefox version 3.
David Desandro created the Opera logo using only CSS3. Highly inspirational. The logo looks great in Firefox, Chrome and Safari. The Opera web browser fails to add the inner gradient (the irony) and Internet Explorer, as usual, mucks it up completely. Please visit the David Desandro’s web site for the CSS and detailed explanation.
Johan from Techfresh.net says that finding Firefox in space is
actually a sign from Heaven for everyone to stop using Internet Explorer. No my friend; Firefox has died and has now become a star – from a fanatical Chrome user.
Looks like some people just can’t get enough from their favorite web browser.
Matt Cutts from Google posing with a temporary Firefox tattoo on the nape. This was during the ‘olden times’ when Google was heavily promoting the open source web browser. It was actually Matt’s blog posts that pushed me to try Chrome and I eventually got hooked. Good the tattoo was temporary.
Apple didn't invent the mouse. It was built at SRI International by Douglas Engelbart and patented in 1970. Apple licensed it for about $40,000. Also, Apple wasn't the first company to attach a mouse to a computer. This had been done by Xerox on their 8010 Star personal computer, which unfortunately wasn't a success probably because of its steep price, a staggering $16,000. In addition to being the inventor of modern mouse, Douglas Engelbart is best remembered for giving a live demonstration of several computer technologies at the Fall Joint Computer Conference in San Francisco. This Mother of All Demos took place on 9th December 1968 and showcased windows, hypertext, graphics, video conferencing, word processing and, of course, the mouse.Mother of All Demos video on YouTube [more...]
