I’m running Firefox as my main browser. I have chrome installed and I have been using it a bit but I don’t really like it (and I have had some interesting problems with it – like can’t go to page 2 on googles own search result). And I’m also using it for development and firebug and firephp is a necessary must for me. So I’m staying with Firefox.

I was chatting with a friend on yahoo yesterday and we started to talk about vidochat. Kopete should support it. So I tried to get it working.
But it failed. So I spend some time with mister google.
Most of the time I have been using mplayer or the gnome version of it.
Today i found a nice new player, also based on mplayer, but it seems to have some nice features. Its called UMPlayer.
Well there has been a lot of discussion about Microsoft take over of Skype. Will it end the Linux part of skype, and wjat will it do for the Open Source world that isn’t running windows.
Well in the rss feed today was a story about Skype for Asterisk. I have not used it myself but I did know it was there, and it was a nice feature that we have discussed to include in our pbx, but not come around to do it.
Found this in my RSS reader today.
