Well, there is not much left to add actually, here is an article from NeoWin
A quiet war has broken out between the authors of AdBlock Plus and NoScript and money is on the table. Both are trying to outdo each other by disabling each other’s functionality.
Or just head over to AdBlock Plus author post: Attention NoScript users.
Google Code Blog today announced that Google’s Location Service became a default location provider in Firefox 3.5 Beta 4.
As the post says: “This means that developers can, with users’ permission, gain access to their approximate location without requiring any additional plug-ins or setting configurations.”
“As a service whose sole purpose is the track the applications that people actually use on their systems, it should be no surprise that Wakoopa has a lot of interesting usage data. On a day to day level, Wakoopa’s data is good, but it’s the aggregate data over long periods of time that can be really meaningful to show how we are using our computers. Today, Wakoopa has released the first such aggregate data with its inaugural State of the Apps report.”
Also not a good sign for Microsoft: The older you are, the more likely you are to use IE. In the youngest age group, 11 to 20 year olds, even smaller browsers like Opera beat it. IE has been losing market share at a steady pace for the past several years.
Long awaited, the next beta of Firefox 3.5 (aka Firefox 3.1) series has been released in 70 languages.
While companies are working on their next-generation web browsers, Betanews has managed to test the performance of the upcoming ones, such as:
Firefox 3.5, Firefox 3.6, Google Chrome, Google Chrome 2, Safari 4, Opera 10. Test also includes Internet Explorer 7 and 8.
Besides the regular one, where you can open recently closed tabs, an improvement allows users to reopen few tabs at the same time which will be a great time saver in a certain situations.
