Just after the Firefox 13 benchmarks were finished, Mozilla has published a new final build for you to play with; believe it or not but itâs called Firefox 14.
So what does this new release bring to the table? Although I am tempted to say ânothingâ, we still welcome various security fixes and the HTTPS search. Other noticeable new features include a full screen support for the Mac OS X and auto complete when using the Awesome Bar.
Now here is something for the Google Chrome users. While we wait for the official application by the search giant itself, Atadore Sarl has created Chrync.
What is Chrync? Itâs a simple app, which allows you to synch encrypted browser bookmarks, recently visited pages, passwords and even the open tabs from Chrome to your Windows Phone.
On a downside, it does cost $0.99 but comes with a free trial and thankfully, uses the same (and secure) sync mechanism that is also utilized by the Google Chrome itself.
Yes, we will finally post this.
With a release of new web browser builds, including Chrome 20 and Firefox 13, guys at the TomsHardware have yet again dome a good job ad benchmarking all of them.
Who will win? Check the results below to find out.
New Aurora build revealed.
If you are a huge Firefox fan then we have some good news for you, the latest Aurora build has recently hit the channel and does indeed include a couple of neat improvements and features.
Starting from Firefox 15, users will be able to view PDF files inside the web browser, thanks to the native PDF support.
Chrome Build 21.0.1180.15.
Here comes another build from the search giant, which brings a couple of new features that only a few will use.
First in the list is a support for the getUserMedia API, which allows web apps to access your camera and microphone.
Lastly, a neat Google Cloud Print integration, allowing you to print documents from your Google Drive, Google Chrome Mobile or even FedEx Offices.
Merges your phone with a web browser.
It looks like guys at the Fenrir Inc. were quite busy developing a set of new web browsers for both PC and the iOS devices, including:
Sleipnir 3 for Windows
Sleipnir 3.5 for Mac OS X
Sleipnir Mobile 2.0 for iPhone and iPad 2
As reported earlier, Google has bypassed the cookie settings in both Appleâs Safari and Microsoftâs Internet Explorer web browsers. Thankfully, it wasnât left unnoticed by the Federal Trade Commission.
Reestablishes the trust.
Recently, Maxthon was accused of cheating its score in the HTML5Test but, as it turns out, itâs not all doom and gloom for the Chinese company.
As explained in their official blog post, they simply released a build that (partially) supports Web GL, âGet user mediaâ and âSubtitlesâ attributes too quickly and that, as a result, caused quite a backlash.
Is it really that much better?
Thankfully, we have found a neat presentation made by Will Chan and Roberto Peon and to be fair, results surprised us, in a good way, of course.
