Dreamhost supports ipv6

April 29th, 2011 No comments

I just found out that dreamhost supports ipv6 (has done since March ’11). Just go to manage domains in the control panel and click “Add IP” next to each of your domains.

Now if only our enterprise hosting at Verio/NTT supported ipv6!

Browser Wars (sunspider edition)

April 14th, 2011 No comments

It seems that most browsers are focused on speeding up javascript execution now as most websites are heavy with ajax and complex js.

With Firefox releasing their pre-beta “dev” version Aurora this morning I decided to run all the current browsers through sunspider to see if any progress has been made.

Chrome-dev: 294ms
Aurora (FF dev): 324ms
Firefox 4: 348ms
IE9: 251ms
IE10 preview 1: 254ms

So it would seem that Firefox has sped up their js engine, but has a little way to go to catch up to the other browsers.
