Guys from Mozilla have finished the 2nd beta of Firefox 3.1 and released it earlier today.
The following release introduces tabs drag and drop support, increased performance, private browsing feature, improved session restore dialog and much more.
- Google’s Chrome Team Mulls Local File Restrictions
- Google outlines plan for extensions in Chrome
- What to Expect From the Second Firefox 3.1 Beta Preview
- Firefox extension Linked Users to Same Product at The Pirate Bay
- Compatibility View Improvements to come in IE8
Note: Already posted news are not included.
Ironically, the long awaited IE8 which is supposed to support web standards won‘t display correctly pages like MySpace, Facebook, CNN, BBC and more as they were designed for older IE versions. And as you know, older IE versions simply ignored web standards.
Dear Microsoft, congratulations. Once again, you broke the web.
BitDefender has identified this new bit of holiday cheer as Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A.”
The trojan installs itself into Firefox’s add-on directory, registers itself as Greasemonkey, and begins searching your hard drive for passwords, login details, your World of WarCraft account information, and your library card number.
Once installed, the trojan is capable of identifying over 100 web sites. When an infected user visits a site the trojan recognizes, the parasite comes to life and records the login/password details being transmitted. Presumably it then goes back to sleep, quietly keeping an eye on further system activity.
