    hi Anand

    how do you generate this list? Wakoopa is blocked at Infy. So could not check that one out.

    Also, surprised to note that you are a Chrome user against FF. I have used both and my preference is still FF.

  2. S Anand says:

    I work out of client sites — so sites aren’t blocked. Plus, it includes software from my home laptop.

    I shifted to Chrome a while ago, even for development, mostly because it’s faster than FF. The only thing I miss is Firebug, really.

  3. Somnath says:

    More time on Gmail than browsers – how are you accessing Gmail then?

  4. Thejesh GN says:

    It doesnt run on Linux (only PC n MAC). Anything for me?

  5. S Anand says:

    @Somnath, mostly breaking through proxies — see http://goo.gl/6wyg0 and http://goo.gl/DNtui.

    @Thej, no idea I’m afraid, but before I used Wakoopa, I was using https://gist.github.com/857652 which worked just fine, except that it wasn’t social and didn’t have the pretty charts. You might want to tweak that for Linux.
