Blogging from Word 2007

Now this is a very cool feature. I am really impressed with Office 2007 so far, apart from a few small bugs and freezes, the application has come a very long way since XP and 2003. I see it as a worth upgrade. Of course I have just written and published this post using Word 2007 – it’s really just feature packed and the new interface is amazing.

If you would like to download and trial Office 2007 Beta, head to the Microsoft Office 2007 Beta Preview site.

Opera Internet Browser

To celebrate Opera’s Internet browsers 10 years of existence, Opera were giving away free program keys to remove ads from the program. I thought, why not, I might go get myself a key and take this program for a spin. I had tried Opera in the past, only to be turned off the browser by its ads, which hog the top part of the browser window – this was several years ago I might add – but without the ads, the browser is quite nice to use. Not only does it look good but it’s functional too. Admittedly, my browser of choice is still Firefox, but for those of you that have tried Firefox, and still don’t enjoy using it, I would suggest Opera as a great alternative, especially to Internet Explorer and all it’s vulnerabilities. While the free program key promotion has finished, the program is still free to download, and is supported by a small ad at the top of the browser. All in all, thumbs up to Opera.
