FireBreath 1.2 released

This is an open source project that one of my friends at school started.  Here is a quick description of the project.

FireBreath aims to be a cross-platform plugin architecture, targeting:

  • NPAPI browsers on windows, mac, and linux:
    • Gecko/Firefox
    • Google Chrome
    • Apple Safari
  • ActiveX Control hosts:
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8

FireBreath is licensed under a dual license structure; this means you can choose which of two licenses to use it under. FireBreath can be used under the New BSD license or the GNU Lesser General Public License v2.1.

Here is his announcement and reflections on starting an open source project.


Weak Internet Explorer, you should be ashamed

Sadly, my wifes computer has to have windows on it.  However, it has tons of open source software.  This way eventually I can ripe Windows out and replace it with something useful like Linux :).  Now that we got the disclaimer out of the way…

I was using Internet Explorer to check something and came across an interesting limitation.  Only a picture can describe this one.

Sorry, too big

 As it states at the bottom…  Don’t mind if I do 🙂

Trying to download it anyways just causes a melt down.
