NFS: Most Wanted 2012 screenshots & review

The game has absolutely no story in particular(in stark contrast to the EPIC storyline of the last game). A voice just tells us that we need to fight our way through the Blacklist and become the “Most Wanted” racer in Fairhaven. The collection of cars is pretty impressive. From uber-luxurious Benley’s to the classic muscle Shelby Cobra’s this game just about has it all. The city of Fairhaven has been designed with quite a lot of detail. From twisty turns down the hills to express- ays that let a player open up, to industrial sites; this city just about has it all.

My #webstory!

It has been 15 years since the inception of Mozilla Firefox. Now 20 versions and a name change later(it was called Phoenix originally) here we are; with well over 400 million users worldwide Firefox is arguably the most popular browser out there.

My use of Firefox started around 5 years back, when broadband internet here was only started being used by India(before that I was too young to to use the Internet)
So I was aged 13 when I got the installation file for Firefox 3 with a Technology Magazine’s DVD(that too it was the first time I bought any technology magazine)

So I installed Firefox and clicked on the browser. To my surprise it felt quite different than the Internet Explorer I used. The web pages open lot faster, I could use Tabs(IE 6 on Windows XP didn’t have Tabs at that time) and the web suddenly started feeling like a better place.

The biggest change has to be the fact that I wasn’t greeted with the error dialog that told me with great sadness that my browser just crashed. Surprisingly Firefox hardly crashed! Initially though I didn’t see it but gradually the difference was crystal clear.

Fast forward to 2013; 6 years, 17 version numbers and a school change later(I changed my school once after passing 10th standard) I am posting #Webstory from my favorite browser.
