The Mast Brothers

Under - Art, Inspiration, Miscellaneous

The life of a mariner is one given over to wanderlust—the quest for adventure, crossing unseen horizons to secure precious goods—only to bring them back to their home port. This same love of adventure and curiosity defines the brotherhood of Rick and Michael Mast. They share a fiercely independent spirit, leaping into the unknown and trusting that they’ll find the answer through endurance and dedication to their craft.

They began their voyage in their apartment, using a homemade machine to process cacao beans. Over time they cultivated their creation, sourcing beans from family farms in Madagascar, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. Each bar is handmade with incredible reverence for the process and history of chocolate. They are bound in ornamental papers and golden foil like a collection of rare books. Each bar offers its own story of flavors, and no two are exactly alike.

Firefox 4 introduces Panorama and Sync

Under - Miscellaneous, Technology, Usability

Firefox offering some new incredible features in its upcoming version 4. One of the new features is Firefox Panorama (formerly known as Tab Candy) which provides an excellent way of organizing tabs for someone like me who keeps at least 3 dozen tabs opened at any time. I think it is one of the best browser features after tabbed browsing itself.

Another feature that I liked is browser settings synchronization on multiple devices for bookmarks, open tabs, passwords and history. I’ve been using Xmarks to sync my bookmarks and opened tabs but with this built-in function, I’d be less worried about keeping things organized on one browser at least.

There are several new under-the-hood improvements and features such as support for multi-touch and WebM in addition to HTML5 and CSS3 but no word on improving memory usage though. Firefox 4 beta can be downloaded from here.
