Browsers speed tests

It has been made to check how fast they render pages on different platforms. It curiously shows the fact that Opera 6.x and 8 versions can be named as the fastest browsers on Earth.

I totally agree with this and every single day I get frustrated with FireFox around multimedia environments pages.

Good choice for people who pretend to keep their house or office fully connected through corded phones without active landline. Just drop your cell phone into the dock station (bluetooth is optional but recommended) and you´ll be able to use your old wired phones as you had wireline service.
