This one is simple…..to set up CalDAV support for Google Calendar in Mozilla Sunbird, follow these steps:
Your Google Calendar will now appear in the Calendar tab of Mozilla Sunbird, and Sunbird will sync any changes to and from Google Calendar. If you’ve imported your calendar from iCal or another app make sure you go to Edit>Preferences and check off “Show missed alarms” under Alarms tab. Otherwise you’ll be prompted to snooze or dismiss all your old events everytime you start the application.

A recent contest at CanSecWest, an event that brings together some of the most skilled experts in the security community, has demonstrated that the three most popular browser are susceptible to security bugs despite the vigilance and engineering prowess of their creators. Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer were all exploited during the Pwn2Own competition that took place at the conference. Google’s Chrome browser, however, was the only one left standing—a victory that security researchers attribute to its innovative sandbox feature.
Way to go Google….but then again what else were you expecting from THE internet company. So if you wanna be safe while wandering through the tubes, go grab a copy ….you’ll be sorry you didn’t.
Well, here is my prediction after digesting most of the content that came out of G-Day. Google Gears will soon make MS Office (and for that matter most “installed” applications) obsolete. Google’s Gears homepage explains that Gears is …
– Store and serve application resources locally
Google in a press release states that Gears “marks an important step in the evolution of web applications because it addresses a major user concern: availability of data and applications when there’s no Internet connection available, or when a connection is slow or unreliable.” They go on to say that making the browser environment more powerful is increasingly important (Google snatched up a couple of Firefox developers – this makes even more sense in the light of this announcement).
Well I guess at this point we can just wait and see. Let’s just hope google doesn’t turn into the next MS when they get to the top.
