Video - Panta Rei Danseteater 'Lullaby'

Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

It's time to upgrade your web browsers folks, you know, that thing you are using right now to look at the magnificent mess that is the internet.

If you are using an out of date web browser then you are potentially opening yourself up to serious security problems and you are missing out on all the new technologies that are available to make your internet experience just that little bit nicer.

The latest releases are all faster, safer and more efficient than their previous versions and they have the distinct advantage of being completely free.

Here in TheLabā„¢ we try very hard to make Article19 look and behave consistently across all the various browsers but there comes a point when we have to move on. So if something looks weird, doesn't work or is just plain broken then we guarantee you that upgrading you browser will fix it.

Firefox 4 (RC) (PC/Mac)

[ Get it from Mozilla ]

It's not complete but the "release candidate" version is as near as makes no difference. Faster and less bloated than version 3 with a much cleaner user interface.

Safari 5 (PC/Mac)

[ Get it from Apple ]

Fast and very lightweight on your computers resources. Also comes with "extensions" that can add functionality to your web browsing like flash blockers and ad blockers.

Chrome (PC/Mac)

[ Get it from Google ]

Uses the same engine under the hood as Safari. It's fast and lightweight and also has "extensions" to help you out with various aspects of web browsing.

Internet Explorer 9

[ Get it from Microsoft (PC only) ]

IE has long been the bane of web site developers and internet users. Version 9 is brand new and it's the closest the software monolith has come to a useable solution for PC users. IE8 and IE7 are rapidly becoming deprecated and many modern websites will abandon support for them over the next 12 months. Upgrade now, you won't regret it.

IE9 users will notice that the typefaces on Article19 become much clearer and smoother thanks to the browsers improved page rendering technology.

One final word. If you work in an office on a networked computer environment and some hack administrator won't upgrade the web browsers "just because". Complain to your manager and get the guy (it's always a guy) fired, "just because".
