There's a new beta browser in town, and its name is Firefox 4. Previously available in "Candidate" form, this latest release is a bit more polished and ready for anyone comfortable playing with beta software, which may or may not prove stable (been running fine for us so far). If Firefox 4 looks eerily familiar, then you must have logged some... Read more...
For compatibility reasons, many corporations still insist on deploying Internet Explorer across their workforce, no matter how much the end-user complains. It's not that IE is more standards compliant than other browsers -- in most cases, the opposite is true -- but Microsoft's longstanding dominance in browser market share has forced Web...

In an effort to get around Apple's ban on rival browsers for its iPhone, Mozilla plans to offer a Firefox application that will give users access to their browser bookmarks and history. The app will also let users open tabs from their most recent Firefox sessions.   The Firefox Home app is a spin-off of the bookmark and tab synchronization... Read more...
If there's one nation out there who really, really cares about the digital well-being of their citizens, it's Germany.

See that headline? If you'd asked us last week if we'd ever use the word "sexy" to describe a browser—particularly a Microsoft browser—we'd have beaten you with a stack of TPS reports. This week, well, it's a different story. The actual IE9 browser isn't available for download yet, but Microsoft has made what it calls the Internet Explorer... Read more...
Internet Explorer 6 may have taken its own sweet time to die given that the browser's security flaws are the stuff of legend, but it appears that the 'Net as a whole is finally ready to move on. While IE6 still accounts for up to 20 percent of the browser market according to some metrics, its share drops dramatically... Read more...
Just over five months after the browser first entered public testing with an alpha release, Mozilla released Firefox 3.6.

Well, for starters, Mozilla... Read more...
Mozilla won't be releasing new versions of Firefox as early as initially planned. The next version of Firefox (version 3.6) was planned to be released sometime this year. Now, this version won't be released until at least the first quarter of 2010. This pushes back other releases as well, including the major 4.0 release; Firefox 4.0 is now... Read more...
Recently, Jay Sullivan at Mozilla told the BBC that Mozilla's upcoming mobile web browser codenamed Fennec is just "days away" from being launched.

Earlier this year, Microsoft released the .NET Framework 3.5 update. At the same time, as an added bonus, end users would get an extra Firefox extension, the "Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant (ClickOnce)," without being asked. That's bad enough, but at the same time the extension made Firefox vulnerable to... Read more...
We've always considered ourselves fans of Nokia devices. In fact, we're not even ashamed to admit that we used one of those Nokia candybars back in the day (you know, one with 'Snake'), and we'd probably still use it today if not for things like "web browsing" and "Twitter." As times have changed, so have the... Read more...
The current crop of web browsers are total crap. Let me explain...Today's web browsers seem to be still mired in the Internet of five years ago. Back then, the browser wars were in full swing, and different browsers tried to lock you into their view of the Internet universe. Today's web is a multifaceted content multiverse.

One billion. That's the amount of dollars that the Cash For Clunkers program devoured in just a week. That's also the amount of dollars you likely wish you had. And believe it or not, that's the amount of times Mozilla's Firefox browser has been downloaded since its inception in 2004. Just as July drew to a close, the one billionth download... Read more...

Fennec, or Firefox Mobile, has finally reached the magic Alpha milestone. Prior to now, it was only available for the Nokia N800 / N810, or you could use a pre-Alpha version on the HTC Touch Pro. It wasn't all that encouraging that the first pre-Alpha release had a showstopper bug.On Friday, Mozilla announced that the Windows Mobile version... Read more...
Many consider the Firefox extensions Adblock Plus and NoScript in positive ways.  We've also indicated that the extension system on Firefox is one reason we're not looking to change to Chrome; we have too many extensions to do so.
