Mozilla has released a new version of their Internet browser, which should bring a number of improvements related to performance and support for Internet standards.
Mozilla has increasing support from device manufacturers for the upcoming operating system Firefox OS. Along with existing partners, Mozilla published 19th company that will support this OS, Taiwanese Foxconn.
Recently the very popular Firefox browser underwent a new update, bringing with it many new features and benefits. The new Firefox 21 Beta is the latest release from the Mozilla Foundation, and is an open-source, free browser.
Mozilla has released Firefox 21, fresh edition of the popular Internet browser. Published versions are intended for PCs and Android devices, and are bringing only minor changes in comparison to the predecessor.
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.
Mozilla has announced that the initial default values on their browser will force Internet users to manually enable plug-ins on every page that uses them. Firefox will therefore block attachments like Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe's Reader, Apple QuickTime, and Oracle Java. As a reason for this decision in Mozilla said they are doing this for improvements of security, stability and performance of the browser.
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.
