Ungdomshuset - Jagtvej 69 Copenhagen Denmark

Ungdomshuset - Jagtvej 69: "Kampagnen er taget gevaldigt til i styrke siden landsretten d. 28. august i år stadfæstede byrettens dom. Med denne dom i hånden kan den skrupskøre højreorienterede frikirke Faderhuset forlange huset ryddet. Den nuværende rydningstrussel er et direkte resultat, af at politikerne i Københavns Borgerrepræsentation i år 2000 løb fra alle tidligere løfter og aftaler og solgte skødet til huset, trods massive protester fra alle tænkelige kanter. Vi giver ikke op og vi opfordrer alle til at deltage i kampen for bevarelse af vores allesammens Ungeren.

Mozilla Firefox 2

MozillaZine Talkback: "The Mozilla Corporation has officially released Mozilla Firefox 2 for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Coming just days after the launch of Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2 offers a refreshed user interface, anti-phishing protection, improvements to the built-in search feature, tabbed browsing changes, the ability to restore an interrupted session, better support for Web feeds, inline spell-checking, support for microsummaries and a number of other enhancements.

Upon starting Firefox 2 for the first time, most users will notice the updated default theme. This refines the design and usability of the theme used since Firefox 1.0 without making any jarring or radical alterations. Design proposals were solicited from three agencies: MetaDesign, Radiant Core and Raizlabs. Radiant Core's proposal was picked and developed for the finished product.

In addition to refining the look of the buttons and other visual elements, the new design tethers the Go button to the Location Bar and adds an equivalent action button to the Search Bar. Several clickable buttons (for example, the feed icon in the Location Bar and the search engine icon in the Search Bar) have been refined to make it more obvious that they are interactive.

Firefox 2's Phishing Protection feature was developed from the Google Safe Browsing feature of the Google Toolbar for Firefox using code"
