Mozilla Finances, Year 2006

By | October 25, 2007 | 1 Comment

Year 2006 was great to Mozilla, not so long time ago they have released their financial statements for 2006 and results says everything.

They have reported a total of $66.8 million revenue for the year 2006 which is more than 25% increase from the year 2005. Most of its revenue is from Google Search of course.

As we can see from this picture, Mozilla’s earnings depends on Google a lot. What if there would be no Google search partnership program?

Mozilla Launches Internet Mail and Communications Initiative

By | September 18, 2007 | 0 Comments

MozillaNot exactly “Web Browsers” related post. Some exciting news today. See Mozilla’s Press Release.

Mozilla today announced a new initiative to stimulate innovation in Internet mail and communications. Mozilla plans to develop Internet communications software based on the Thunderbird product, code and brand. The new initiative also aims to nurture a robust developer ecosystem in order to drive improvements through open source and community innovation, in the tradition of the Firefox web browser…

Mozilla will provide US$3 million seed funding to establish this new company.

From SpreadFirefox

The goals for the new company are:

  • Take care of Thunderbird users
  • Move Thunderbird forward to provide better, deeper email solutions
  • Create a better user experience for a range of Internet communications — how does / should email work with IM, RSS, VoIP, SMS, site-specific email, etc?
  • Spark the types of community involvement and innovation that we’ve seen around web “browsing” and Firefox.

    No More Than 10 Days To Release Critical Patch

    By | August 8, 2007 | 2 Comments

    “Ten Fuc*ing Days”. That’s what Mozilla said.

    That’s right, they’ve said that they can release any critical patch within 10 days or faster. Firefox 2.0.0.6 was released even faster than 10 days (after security flaws were discovered). So they are not just using some tricks (or do they?), it’s already proven, we will see how fast they will release next one.

    In my point of view, before using such statements they should also fix other security vulnerabilities. Even if they are not the most critical ones.

    Details About IronMonkey And ScreamingMonkey

    By | August 8, 2007 | 0 Comments

    Hello everyone,
    Sorry for not writing anything interested in a past few days, I was in some kind of not planned vacation. Anyways, time for the news.

    Mozilla team updated us by providing more details about IronMonkey and ScreamingMonkey. Here are some quotes from their post.

    The critical, core, component of this is the Tamarin virtual machine (which is an Open Sourced version of the ActionScript Virtual Machine that powered the Adobe Flash Player). Tamarin already supports ECMAScript 3 (and, thusly, JavaScript, ActionScript, and JScript) and parts of the upcoming ECMAScript 4 specification.

    JavaScript will no longer be the only viable scripting language in browsers that use that Tamarin engine. At the very least, there’ll be two more languages to work with.

    ScreamingMonkey is the effort, being led by Mark Hammond, to allow the Tamarin engine to run within non-Mozilla browsers, starting with Internet Explorer.

    ScreamingMonkey Planning Notes.

    That’s a brief, here’s a full story to read (if you want to).

    Firefox 2.0.0.6 Released

    By | July 31, 2007 | 0 Comments

    Finally, some new version of web browser, as I was geting bored.

    Firefox 2.0.0.6 fixes the following security issues:

    • Unescaped URIs passed to external programs
    • Privilege escalation through chrome-loaded about:blank windows

    Every web browser update is important and I strongly advice you to update your Firefox to the newest one. If you can increase your security level for free, why not to do that?

    Download Firefox 2.0.0.6
