Friday is Free Day – Windows Media Player Browser Plugin

Leave a comment

Windows Media PlayerWhen a streaming audio/video links to .asf or .asx files (Windows media), chances are you won’t be prompted to download the plugin if you’re a Firefox or Google Chrome user. To be able to play these streaming media files, you’ll either need to use Internet Explorer as your browser or install the Windows Media Player plugin for your browser.

You may download the plugin from the Interoperability Bridges and Labs Center website. Download and run the installer and start your browser. This plugin works on Firefox (even up to FF5 Beta) and Google Chrome.

Firefox 4 Beta 1 Is Already Out

Firefox 4 Beta 1

Firefox 4 Beta 1 on Windows XP

Mozilla has released the beta 1 version of Firefox 4. I’ve already downloaded and installed the browser on my Intel P4 machine. It worked great. It loads sites faster compared to its previous versions. It has an almost similar look to Google’s Chrome except for the title bar that was retained. And it doesn’t freeze that much anymore. However, it’s now on top of my Task Manager’s processes list as it eats up more resources compared to the 3.6.x versions. I’ll further test the beta version for updates.

It also has a feedback button at the right side beside the search pane where you can send your feedback to make it better. And since it’s in beta stage, most of your add-ons won’t work.

Update:

I already installed the beta version on a Windows 7 machine. It also has the title bar but the menu bar is automatically hidden. Just press the ALT key to unhide it. It’s still on top of my processes list. well, it’s still fast. Here’s how it looks like:
