Wednesday is the new Thursday

Fun things to make plans to do this week…

Wednesday
The Browser Wars is the Star Wars of the web world. Episode I was decided when IE won the marketshare battle. After years of peace, Firefox and Opera shake things up in “Attack of the DOMs” — a battle that’s relevant to even the pseudo-geeks among us in our Web 2.0/AJAX world. Yahoo! in Sunnyvale, CA is hosting the battle tonight, so grab some grub and check into Building C to see it play out. Will IE triumph again or will newcomer Opera surprise the big boys?

Thursday
Big cats, magic and…helicopters? This is not your average Las Vegas magic show. The Tropicana has performances twice per day so there’s no reason not to “see it” and “disbelieve it.”

Friday
Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Joe Ely, and Guy Clark start a 3-night stand at the Fox Theatre in our very own Redwood City, CA. The Bay is buzzing over this show so forget all the covers you’ve heard over the years, and come hear the originals.

Saturday
The biggest Chinese New Year parade outside of Asia had to wait till the spandex cleared out of town, but it’s happening now! It’s the Year of the Pig and San Francisco’s Golden Dragon is ready to come out and play. The party starts at Second and Market streets at 5:30 p.m. and ends with the Dragon’s 201 feet of silk, gauze and velvet, and 600,000 firecrackers.

Sunday
The late Nan Kempner wouldn’t have missed the opening of a door, so don’t you miss the closing of the door on the the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition of her fabulous couture collection, Nan Kempner: American Chic.

Renkoo helps you make plans with friends.

    Noticed you never mentioned Netscape in the ‘browser wars.’ I wonder what Netscape is up to now?

    Opera hasn’t seemed to have taken off, but I think FireFox is still going pretty strong. It’s interesting to see that many of the new IE options are really stolen straight from firefox. No need to worry, I’m sure FireFox will come up with something new again and beat the Microsoft boys– like everyone else does.

    As for Opera, what really sets it aside? And, in my limited knowledge, I’m not sure what kind of money is really to be made in browsers anyway. I can understand search engines… and windows live search is still not making the grade, if you ask me.

    eh Now I’m using Mozilla and i think is better than IE
    thanks for article


  3. Thanks for this great rundown. It’s excellent! How come you never mentioned about other browsers? Any update about the rest or about this same topic for this year?
