When developing websites, I’ve found it incredibly useful to be able to run, or install, multiple versions of Firefox on the same computer, side-by-side, simultaneously, however you want to call it.

CM7 is a massive step up on the ZTE Blade compared to Orange’s horrific 2.1-based stock ROM, especially once you replace the default CM7 launcher (ADW) with LauncherPro. (more…)
