Once again I just messed up my computer... as the title suggest I can ping the websites (tried with google.com and yahoo.com) but cannot browse them with my web browser.
I had this problem since a long time, the only solution that I had was to restart my computer, I know that it was due to my dns server. ;)
I tried to change my dns server ip and some time it worked, but I was sure this was not the solutions, so I googled it out.. and found that you can run the following commad and it will solve it out:
netsh winsock reset
So, I just tried it out, it will reset my tcp/ip stack, but that will require me to restart my computer.. I haven't restarted it yet.. but hope it works... I will add my experience with it later... bcoz its 1:17am.. so I better go to sleep now.. bye..
Recently google released Chrome, which I just tried, its a brand new web browser from Google.
I was pretty much excited about it.
Intially it seemed rocking... the designs were great, browsing was fast, easy to use and much more.
but it shows tumbnails of your most frequently visited nine pages when you open a new tab... I don't like this feature.. though it may be useful to others, but I don't want it.
And the problem is that I was not able to find any options to turn it off. Finally I found one thing known as incognito which lets you browse without saving your history, but than again every time I open the browser I have to open a new incognito window and than do my browsing.. :(
The shortcut to incognito window is Ctrl+Shift+N which is difficult to remember, so I thought to change it to something else.. but could not find any options which allow me to change short cuts.. :(
So, finally, I returned to Firefox 3 just in few minutes...
