If there was ever an indication that virtual reality might make it in the mainstream market it is when the web browsers start to support it. So far we have heard rumblings that Microsoft, Google and even Mozilla will be throwing their lot in with the VR gang. One of the big reasons for this is that Facebook has already pushed into that territory with their purchase of Oculus VR. After buying the virtual reality headset maker there have been multiple rumors of Facebook making a VR social world as an extension of their existing social network.
Mozilla is the version 28 of browser Firefox for the first time significantly changed the user interface from the issue of Firefox 4 back in 2011.
After almost a year Mozilla was managed by temporary CEO Jay Sullivan, the company finally decided to appoint a person which will be a permanent solution to the position of Chief Executive Officer. It is a developer and former director of Mozilla technology, 53 year old Brendan Eich.
In the browser wars there is always going to be the argument over which browser is “better”. You will hear people talk about how fast, secure, cool, feature rich their favorite browser is, but in the end all of them really fall short of where they should be. Oddly enough it is Microsoft’s Internet Explorer that gets the brunt of the jokes and jabs (in many cases rightly so). However at this year’s Pwn2Own it was Mozilla’s FireFox that got tossed around like a rag doll.
Mozilla recently launched a pre-beta version of Firefox called Aurora and brought a completely new user interface, greater customization of the touch screen, as well as some new features. Redesign project so far has been designed exclusively for the nightly version of Firefox, and it was in development for two years.
Mozilla has released the financial report for the last year. The data is somewhat worrying because as much as 90% of this organization's profit comes from a single source.
As you probably already know, Firefox OS is the new mobile operating system, and according to rumors it will arrive on rather low-end devices. Now Korean company LG introduced its first device that uses the mentioned OS.
Even though Mozilla quite early announced the availability of their Firefox browser, published for the Modern UI on Windows 8, looks like some problems got in the way. Although the original development should be completed this year, as it now seems, however, finalized version will not appear until next year.
ZTE and Mozilla have released a media statement saying that they will soon start selling what they say is "the first Firefox OS smartphone that is based entirely on web technology" on the eBay. They also say that users with this device get the performance, personalization and price they want in a smartphone packed into a beautiful, clean, intuitive and simple user experience.
