Firefox 22! Update with some trouble!?

Firefox 22 is here as expected on time. Considering the time passed since released most of the Firefox users has the update already. There are few changes in this 22 version against the older ones(check the list below). But the most prominent thing which came with the update is not any improvement! Sadly it is an awkward experience coming with the change of layout of webpages along with Firefox browser itself. It now completely follows the users' machine configuration and as such gives a bigger viewing experience for most of the users. People who were already using the beta versions must have already been familiar with this issue. But for the ones like me who use the proper releases only, it came as a surprise and made me want to get back to the earlier version until I found out the tweak to fix the problem on my end.

Speccy 1.22.535

Ever worried about how you can't remember your computer hardware configuration/s? Speccy is just for you! You can not only get the detailed information about your hardware but their performance too through this little freeware. For the lovers of it, Speccy has just released the latest update.

Speccy at .NeXT

Speccy is an advanced System Information tool for your PC. Need to find out what's inside your computer? No problem! Speccy will give you all the information you need.

Overview

What's in your computer? If you're like most of us, you can probably name the processor (Intel or AMD, Celeron or Pentium), maybe how much RAM it has, and maybe how big the hard drive is.

When you go to a computer store and see all the bright shiny PCs laid out next to each other, most will have tags or stickers indicating the:

  • Processor brand and model
  • Hard drive size and speed
  • Amount of memory (RAM)
  • Graphics card
  • Operating system

Two or three years later, when it comes time to upgrade your computer, that tag or sticker may be long gone. Speccy was designed as a free electronic "what's inside" sticker for your PC.

Isn't this information in Windows?

Yes and no. Some of the basic information can be found by right-clicking My Computer and then clicking Properties. The General tab lists some statistics, and the Device Manager on the Hardware tab lists all of the hardware you've got installed. But it misses out lots of information that you need.

Speccy will give you detailed statistics on every piece of hardware in your computer. Including CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Graphics Cards, Hard Disks, Optical Drives, Audio support. Additionally Speccy adds the temperatures of your different components, so you can easily see if there's a problem!

Why do I need Speccy?

At first glance, Speccy may seem like an application for system administrators and power users. It certainly is, but Speccy can also help normal users, in everyday computing life.

If you need to add more memory to your system, for example, you can check how many memory slots your computer has and what memory's already installed. Then you can go out and buy the right type of memory to add on or replace what you've already got.

If you're going to be selling your PC, you can use Speccy to quickly list out the components. Or, if you're buying a PC, you can use Speccy to check that the computer has what the label says it has.

Also, Speccy comes in handy for support. If you're on the phone with technical support and they want to know what video card you have installed, there's no need to hunt around Windows. Speccy has all the information on one easy-to-understand screen.

Latest Changes:

- Added Temperature sensor output to System Tray.
- Added Read and Write capability information for Optical Drives.
- Added Graphics Card Manufacturer and Model information.
- Added support for newest Intel and AMD CPUs.
- Added MAC addresses to the Network section.
- Improved Computer Type detection for virtual machines.
- Improved CPU and memory usage.
- Minor bug fixes and GUI improvements.

Gameplay :

The game will feature the Soviet Red Army as a new faction and will take the player on various stages of the Eastern Front campaign, from Operation Barbarossa to the Battle of Berlin. The game is built on Relic's proprietary Essence 3.0 engine, which showcases new improvements compared to Relic's previous games. One such improvements is the new line-of-sight technology, TrueSight, which aims to better emulate troop visibility in real combat. In contrast with traditional unit visibility, TrueSight more accurately represents a unit's visibility range based on environmental conditions and type of unit. Essence 3.0 will also incorporate an innovative weather-simulating technology known as ColdTech and destructible environments.

Weather conditions will be a major factor in gameplay, with movement and action penalties applied on players' units. Since many battles in the Eastern Front occurred in winter weather, troops can die of frostbite if caught in the outside during blizzards. Bonfires protect soldiers from the cold at the expense of enemy detection. Players moving through deep snow will move at a reduced speed. Certain maps will have frozen bodies of water, allowing for more movement options. However, players face the danger of being attacked from the other side; as a result, the ice can buckle under the weight of the units in movement.

Company of Heroes 2 will take advantage of Directs but will also support Directs 9. The game will also utilize Valve's Steam works technology with matchmaking and achievements. In regards to strategy mechanics, the game is set to retain the traditional Company of Heroes formula.

The game will also offer the player a chance to complete side missions such as protecting civilians caught in the crossfire.(From Wikipidia)
