... and ... don't bother me - I know, there is (at least) a smarter browser out there, with an immense and open ecosystem of dev-plugins... :-)

- Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries and set the value like this:
network.http.pipelining --> true
network.http.proxy.pipelining --> true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests --> 30 (This means it will make 30 requests at once)
Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.
- Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
Now, Firefox will load the pages much faster.

The whole discussion is available as Webcast or/and Potcast: The Impact of Web 2.0 and Emerging Social Network Models .
Yihong Ding posted an excellent summary about the mentioned WEF Panel and the WWW Evolution.
Even more information is available about FireFox 3.0 (codename Gran Paradiso), the growing concurrence for Microsoft's IE. Offline capabilities seems to be one of the key features. Here a sample.
Imaging having Browser-Versions of Spreadsheet, Word processing à la Google-Docs available for Online- and Offline-Usage....
Why a private user will be willing to pay for Microsoft Office Software?
Last week I updated my samples to RTM Version and ... the problem is gone without doing anything! neither configuration or code changes inside the samples nor configuration changes on vista.

Zattoo was founded in US in 2005 by Sugih Jamin, professor for computer science at the University of Michigan, and Beat Knecht, a swiss software product marketing professional and former McKinsey consultant in Silicon Valley.
Zattoo is a Peer-to-Peer IPTV-Service. The main goal is a fast loading, long running Live-Internet-TV for broadband users, broadcaster, content owners and advertisers.
"Advances in broadband, video compression, and multicast streaming technology are rapidly lowering the technical hurdles for Internet and television to merge on a PC. However, there is still the matter of cost. Our streaming network solves that problem by reducing broadcasters' costs by a factor of ten, making it compelling for them to switch to our technology and broaden their service offering," said Sugih Jamin, CTO and co-founder of Zattoo. "Also, Zattoo's proprietary P2P streaming technology ensures a video delivery and smoothness that has until now been impossible to achieve."
Personally, I was impressed by the quality. No interrupt during 30 minutes test and I was surfing throu the web in parallel (Internet-connection: 4000 kb/s download, 400 kb/s upload).

They use accurate mediums to publish informations - a blog. Every participant - including Microsoft chairman Bill Gates - has been asked to post at least once, according to this article.
This afternoon, I followed the discussion about Web 2.0 with Leaders from Microsoft, Flickr, Nike, Fortune and more. The topic aimed less about technique and more about participation, community, sharing, individualization of content and services.... order your individual, unique styled Nike-Shoes... Customize your desktop and web... just be a part of it.
Web 2.0 is everywhere. And Web 3.0 is already on its way....
Update 2007 (WEF): Beyond Web 2.0 -- From Content to Collective Knowledge?
While social networks and community-oriented interactive sites, known as Web 2.0, continue to gain pace, the advent of Web 3.0 is already taking shape. In this Update, panellists (WEF) will discuss how a fundamental, technology-enabled "semantic Web" could develop over the coming four to five years, driven by hyper personalization coupled with advances in meta tagging and search, revolutionizing the way the knowledge is shared.
Hope, I will find the according WEF potcast.
WEF - Please don't mix it with Wresting Entertainement Federation :-)

ASP.NET developers may wish to use the Microsoft Anti-Cross Site Scripting Library to encode output. This library differs from other encoding libraries in that it uses the principle of inclusions and provides a high degree of protection against XSS attacks.

WPF/E does not even contain a Textbox control at the moment. It is in a really early stage. So don't be disappointed. According to this thread, Microsoft is working on adding basic control (TextBox, Checkbox, ...) in the next CTP. Then we're getting closer to business needs.
In the meantime, Tony Lombardo from Infragistics did realize a cool combo (WPF/E and MS AJAX) - a "WPF/E Textbox". Take a look. An enthralling technical chat about WPF and WPF/E to gain insights:

The Future CTP is not official documented, so this kind of Tutorial from the community are really worthwhile.

The Windows Task Scheduler is accessible thru a COM interface, but the .NET Framework does not offer any native wrapper for it. :-(
Dennis Austin built an excellent .NET wrapper for the Scheduler, including Source Code, MSDN Style Help and Demo Client. Wow, R-E-S-P-E-C-T !
I was able to build an ASP.NET 2.0 Application to list, add, edit and remove tasks to the scheduler - in no time! Thanks, Dennis - your my programmer of the Week

Since Ajax Web applications exist on both the client and the server, they include the following security issues:
- Create a larger attack surface with many more inputs to secure
- Expose internal functions of the Web application server
- Allow a client-side script to access third-party resources with no builtin security mechanisms
AJAX implementations require a trust relationship between the client and server — a relationship that can be exploited by an attacker...

So I downloaded the latest AJAX Control Toolkit Bits from Codeplex and installed the VS-Templates as well.
But, no sample code was working on my machine (VISTA, VS.NET 2005 SP1, IE7 and FF2)!
I've got always the following Script-Error: "Sys is undefined" (Sys is one of the major "classes" of the MS AJAX Library). It seems, that the browser is not able to detect the Script-Library, where this object is located.
I've checked the references to the AjaxToolkit.dll, did all the config mentioned in this thread (http://forums.asp.net/1516718/ShowThread.aspx) - no success.
If you google for "Sys is undefined" "AJAX" you will find loads of post about this problems. Seems to exist since ages...
At least, when I'm running the sample on a Windows XP (with IE7), everything work as expected. --> expected means correct!! :-)
