Firefox team keeps adding features to their new web browser, as you know it’s called Firefox 3 (codename Gran Paradiso).
This time they announced “web pages content editing” support for Firefox 3, while Internet Explorer and Safari already got this feature, it’s not so advanced like Firefox one (still i ndevelopment). So now you can edit sections which are marked with contentEditable = “true”.
We should will have Firefox 3 Alpha 6 release today and I am pretty excited about that. Alpha 6 will be the last release in “Alpha” series.
After Firefox 3 Alpha 6 release we should wait till the the next month (July) end in order to enjoy Firefox 3 Beta 1.
Waiting for the news…
As Mozilla told us, Firefox 184.108.40.206 will be the last release ever in the Firefox 1.5 series, in order to help Firefox 1.5 users update their browsers into Firefox 2.0 more easily, they have developed an easy update system to do that.
We are rollling major update starting this afternoon (Thu, June 28, afternoon PDT).
If you are a big fan of Firefox this might be interesting for you. They will be adding new items to Mozilla Store (later in the summer). One of those are brand new design T-Shirts.
Yes, soon we will have a brand new design Firefox T-Shirts in the Mozilla Store.
I must say that they do look much better than those in the right (Firefox logo only) as they don’t concentrate just on the logo anymore (which says not much).
Want to protect your privacy? Stanford SafeCache extension for Firefox might be one of the ways to do that. This plugin can protect you against various cache-based tracking techniques.
It allows embedded content to be cached, but segments the cache according to the domain of the originating page.
After installation you will be able to Enable or Disable it.
It’s not much, but if you really want to do that, feel free and try this extension.
Firefox 3 (codename Gran Paradiso) will remember site preferences.
What does it means?
I am not sure if Firefox 3 Alpha 6 or Firefox Alpha 7 will be able to do that, but Firefox 3 final do that for sure and that’s a good thing.

Opera team is showing us a very first screenshot of Opera 9.5 (codename “Kestrel”) with extended validation 1.0 (EV) enabled.
You can read more about it here.
“Mozilla is excited to see the new Extended Validation Guidelines that have resulted from collaboration between Certificate Authorities,” said Window Snyder, Chief Security Officer for the makers of the Firefox web browser. “EV SSL will make it easier for Firefox to tell users who is behind the website they’re seeing, which is an important factor in making trust decisions.”
Extended Validation Guidelines
The issuance process of EV Certificates is strictly defined in the EV Guidelines, that specify all the steps required for a Certification Authority (CA) before issuing a certificate, and includes:
- Verifying the legal, physical and operational existence of the entity
- Verifying that the identity of the entity matches official records
- Verifying that the entity has exclusive right to use the domain specified in the EV Certificate
- Verifying that the entity has properly authorized the issuance of the EV Certificate
