I'm doing a research for my College about the influence of the Internet in people's life. Especially, using the Internet as a way of entertainment (including watching videos) versus the traditional TV. Thanks for your help.
I'm doing a research for my College about the influence of the Internet in people's life. I'd like that you include in your answer if you spend more time in front of the TV or in front of the PC and if you use the Internet as a way of entertainment (including watching videos). Thanks for your help.

I prefer the Internet because it is interactive and also there is a wider variety of things to do, read, watch, listen to, etc. I enjoy writing, like to penpals, and forums like this one. TV is completely passive, you just sit there and watch it, and I get bored. (I do love the occasional movie though.)
I have only recently really discovered YouTube. I knew it was there all along and occasionally saw something there, but the last few weeks I've been looking up all kinds of strange things just at random--just browsing as I used to do, and still do, with Google--just to see what I might find. There's some very bizarre and fascinating stuff there!
The two media are getting closer together every day, and I can foresee a time when all video content will be 'on demand' on the Internet. I was just thinking today that perhaps by the next Summer Olympics, all the events will be on the Internet and you will be able to watch whatever you like, even those events that are never covered on US TV. The only events we see here are those in which Americans are likely to win.

Originally Answered: How do I increase browsing speed on Mozilla Firefox?
There is a speed war on the web. Browsers compete on many fronts; security, standards support, features and speed. Most people are aware of which major browser fails on three of these, but one of them is still open for grabs. Speed.
Many organisations and users try to claim that their browser is the fastest. The Opera site claims that Opera is The Fastest Browser on Earth!. The Mozilla site claims that Firefox 1.0 empowers you to browse faster (faster than what?). Mozilla itself is quoted as being an alternative to Microsoft IE and it's faster to boot. Apple's Safari pages claim that Safari loads pages more quickly than any other Mac web browser (although they failed to show any results for Opera, and their charts fail to show results for pages that contain images). Internet Explorer users often claim that they use it because of its speed, as the alternatives take longer to start and load pages.
Opera and Firefox users are quite vocal on the subject, but none of them can actually show any research to back up their statements, ususally just saying "X takes way longer than Y to start" or "my friend uses X and it is much slower on his computer than Y is on mine". Those that did try more than one usually say "X just felt faster than Y when I tried them" (although this may refer to familiarity with the individual user interface - something that I do not cover here). I have even heard people comparing Firefox and Opera, then realised they were referring to Opera 6 (even though historically, Opera 6 is about equivalent to Netscape 4), something that was replaced with a completely new engine long before Firefox even existed.
Well, I've had enough of these unfounded arguments. I present my research. This is an honest, unbiased view (or as unbiased as I can be). Unlike most people, I not only test all the browsers, I test them all on the same computer as each other - grouped into Linux, Mac and Windows (using the same or equivalent hardware for each). This, I hope, gives an accurate comparison, not only of the browsers compared with each other, but for those that work on multiple platforms, it also gives a fairly accurate comparison of the different optimisations for each platform.
And please, those of you whose browsers did not perform as well as you had hoped, just accept it. Stop with the comments saying this article is biased. It does not matter what I use or you use. This article is not biased. The fastest browsers are the fastest browsers. I appreciate browsers for the sake of them being browsers. I feel no need to tailor tests or alter results to make a browser appear better or worse than it actually is.
I tend to prefer using the internet as entertainment for playing video games with others online, watching the Olympics when I have time to see them versus having to see them whatever time they put them on the television.On the internet you have more control over what you want to see and when you want to see it too. I occasionally talk to my family using the Program called skype to talk to them and play online games at the same time. I also like to help people like yourself.;)

Because you can change flavors in a click, or tab from page to page in no time. Also you get that personal contact with people from forum sites, chat sites, and profile networking sites.
It's a lot more social than TV and a lot more interactive.

For whatever reason, the router prefers the other computer. Are both computers wireless?
One problem may be the orientation of your antenna. No antenna is truly omnidirectional—the dead zone for the most common antennas on wireless equipment is directly opposite the way it is pointing. If the router is directly below you, and running Ethernet cable is not an option, try pointing the antenna in a different direction.
FPS games run much better on a wired connection, as even the small amount of latency from converting part of the pathway to 2.4 or 5GHz radio can mean many more lost gunfights.
Since UDP port 3659 is used by the game engine, the router might be having trouble keeping the port available for both computers. Some posters over at the Battlelog forum might also have better explanations for this.
