Says they do things differently.
We hope you got used to the Mozilla’s fat release cycles already as the open source organization has just published the final version of the Firefox 13.
If you think that it’s another minor release, don’t be fooled as FF 13 does include a couple of great features worth mentioning.
Launches more “Are We” web sites.
As you might know, Mozilla has a couple of sites that help users to tracks Firefox’s progress, such as:
Now, it looks like the open source organization will be extending its portfolio with a couple more gems, those include:
Just slightly more than a week ago, Mozilla and Google have accused Microsoft of using unfair practices to block competitive browsers on their Windows 8 RT platform, now, it looks like things did not get unnoticed.
Recently, the US Senate Judiciary Committee has announced that they will investigate allegations of the anti-competitive behavior by Microsoft. In addition to that, the European Commission will be joining the party as well.
Forgets about the iPad.
Here is some drama for a Thursday night. In the tablet market where Apple pretty much dominates it with a healthy 90% market share mark (in terms of shipments), Mozilla decided to complain about no other than Microsoft, which, according to them, will not allow other browsers than IE to run in the Windows Classic mode on an ARM based, Windows RT OS.

What is it all about? Windows Phone, Gecko and … Firefox version numbering!
Following Microsoft’s lead to bring the consistent UI experience across a variety of different devices with Windows 8 and Windows Phone, Mozilla has combined its desktop and mobile UI teams to create the uniform look.
Back in November, 2011, we have reported that the Internet Explorer web browser has fallen below the 50% market share mark.
Now, it looks like the software giant has something to celebrate as according to the latest numbers, it’s back at 50%, up from 49.82% (0.18 point increase).
Developers to blame.
In an interesting turn of events, which we view as positive news for its users, Opera Software will soon be releasing an experimental build of Opera Mobile Emulator, which will use WebKit prefixes to combat ignorant web developers. In addition to that, since it will be integrated into Opera’s core, you can expect to see same prefixes across all Opera web browsers in the near future.
If you have not yet received an update notification, then here is your chance to download the final version of Firefox 12.
While the following build does not bring any significant improvements, it’s update after all and who doesn’t like to run the latest and greatest build?
