P.S.: I guess blogging using email is not working so I had to post it using Blogger :(

Viamatic foXpose was the exact opposite of tabnail. It was made in a few hours time. Though the thought was there but in front of tabnail I did not see why anybody would want this extension. But I still went forward and made it when I was a little free time. But somehow it is surprising that people found foXpose better than tabnail. And for that the only reason I feel that could happen is the name. The name foXpose seems to say it all.
For Tabnail we first called it Thumb Tab which somehow sucked. I know Tabnail also sucked but the good thing about Tabnail is that if you searched on google there was not even a single site. So in a way the name was unique. In the end I guess Tabnail will have people going really loving it i.e. once they start using it.

Its been more than a week and google has been acting really funny.
The only way of getting onto google is to use the IP. That is really
frustrating. I have changed the default search engine from google to
Yahoo! Whenever I wish to search for anything all I see is the problem
with the DNS. I really don't know if its a problem with thier hardware
or someone has hacked into the google plex. These two lines are what I
normally see when I unknowingly use google. "The connection has timed out
The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond."
The outages seem to be increasing at such an alarming rate that now
its almost impossible to log onto gmail. The only way of checking mail
on gmail is through a mail client. I started using the IP but that does
not make life any easier. So finally after being frustrated I am back
If you use Yahoo! as the default search engine in firefox it hardly
matters if its Yahoo!, MSN or Google. Next time if you do not get
through google just try setting Yahoo! as the default, you will hardly
notice the difference.
