In order to attract developers to write applications for their operating system for mobile devices, Mozilla offers them free mobile phones to use for development. This method of motivating developers is becoming more and more popular, just to remind you that BlackBerry recently also decided to give their Z10 smartphones to the developers of applications for their new platform.

Malware, spyware, viruses these are all things that are part of the modern computing experience. When you are online you always have to be aware of the dangers of these items. Over the years the developers of malware have become more and more clever at disguising their wares from users and anti-malware programs. This is something that you would expect of this group as in many cases they are looking to gather money, information or pull your system into their botnets (which can also equal money). However what you would not expect is for a legitimate company to use the same tactics to build their own spyware to assist governments and law enforcement.

The problem is Apple's insistence that other web browsers for iOS need to browse the web using Apple's UIWebView component, while Apple for their web browser saved advanced Nitro JavaScript engine.

Although Firefox already supports the "do not track" option for cookies, which informs some advertisers to stop tracking your activities on the web, for version 22 they are preparing options that go a step further. It seems that the popular browser will refuse cookies from third parties by default, typically these cookies are from various advertising networks.

Last month Mozilla announced that they will cease the development of 64-bit Firefox for Windows (but not for Linux and Mac OS X). This move was, rightly, met with the disapproval of many users. However Mozilla refused to change their mind until now.
