"internetThe Internet tab now has favorites on it, as well as recently visited sites. It’s actually quite interesting to watch the development of this OS over time. For example, right now there’s a bug in that favorites listing which causes entries to only go out horizontally, rather than vertically — meaning if I want to select one of the favorites that’s not on the main page I have to scroll 4.25 thumbnail icons at a time.

"Boot time has changed, though it’s still near the same 30 seconds it took before and nowhere near their goal of sub-10 seconds. Right now on my Acer Aspire One D1150-1165, it is 7 seconds from power-on to post-BIOS, then 23 more seconds to boot Linux. The previous article told of 5 seconds from power-on to post-BIOS, then 25 seconds to boot Linux. An odd change there, and one I don’t quite understand."
