Web browser benchmarks on Windows and Mac OS X.
With the recent Firefox and Google Chrome releases, TomsHardware has decided to test all the competitors in both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
There’s no time to waste, so let’s dive into the results.
A week after releasing the first security update for Firefox 6 and Firefox 3.6 branches, Mozilla has another update for you, which pretty much deals with the very same issue: certificates trust.
Exciting times ahead.
According to various reports, the latest Firefox 9 nightly builds score up to 32% more in JS benchmarks when compared to Firefox 6 and it’s not even finished yet.
Tyler Downer, a “community lead” at Mozilla Corp., criticized the company for a lack of effective methods to address all the bug notifications that users submit.
According to his post, Firefox users have submitted more than 6,000 issues that are getting harder and harder to track due to poor management, as developers can no longer tell, which bugs are critical and which ones are not.

Another month passes by as we look at the August market share stats to find out, how web browsers competed at the end of summer.
Internet Explorer is approaching the 50% market share mark, as it’s now down another 1.13 point, from 52.72% to 51.59%.
Sometime after the initial Firefox 6 release, Mozilla has announced the availability of the very first security update for both Firefox 6 and Firefox 3 branches.
Both versions fix one security vulnerability that was solved by removing the DigiNotar root certificate.
