Firefox 3 beta 3

I am very impressed Firefox 3 beta speedy. Right now, I feel it fly like Safari 3.

One thing I don't really like it is "Location bar & auto-complete" because the search result is too wide. And, it really change user experience. For example, I type "d", Firefox 2 shows the first item on the list is "digg .com", but not Firefox 3. I prefer auto-complete to work on url search only.

I also try to see how good its memory management, so I let it run a day and back to my start up page, default google search page. Windows Task Manager show 90 MB. The first start up page is 26 MB only. Looks like there is still big gap to improve in the memory management.

Generally, I give thumb up for it.

Spray form validation demo

Today, I am looking Eclipse plugin and find a interested javascript editor, JSEclipse.

I am also browsing around Adobe Labs to see other helpful resources.
I always doubt how to design AJAX framework. So I check Spray and get some concept of how to design some APIs. I look at form validation demo and its source codes. The AJAX validation is registered at the end of page, which make the code very portable. But I have different view of those attributes related validation, like minChars:20, maxChars:180 in the textarea. I believe it's better put those attributes into TEXTAREA object for easy maintenance.

Looking for a plugin in Eclipse to export Structure Compare report

In the CVS repository Exploring, I can compare by day and the result come out a tree list. I only get "Expand All" in the context menu. Can any plugins export the tree list to a report?

I have two kind of sources (english and chinese in html files). English is developing mainly and I would like to synchronize chinese files immediately and need a way to verify sources. If you have any idea, please advice. Thanks in advance.
