Firefox 4 Receives Paste and Go

By | September 23, 2010 | 31 Comments

Firefox 4 Receives Paste and GoIt looks like Firefox developers are following Opera and Chrome web browsers, as latest builds now include a much needed, “Paste and Go” functionality in both, address bar and search engine forms.

Just like in Opera or Google Chrome, menu will appear after you right click on one of the forms. If everything works as expected, you may also assign a shortcut, such as CTRL+B or any other.

64-Bit Flash Player for Windows, Mac and LinuxGood news, everyone, Adobe has just released a preview build of 64-bit Flash Player for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

Known issues:
- Video playback issues may appear on certain websites such as Hulu.com, Audi.co.uk, and nbc.com.
- Mouse interactivity in the Settings UI dialog does not work using Internet Explorer 9. Keyboard navigation works as expected. Please pardon our dust.
- Internet Explorer 9 is not yet final. As such, Adobe is continuing to work with Microsoft to resolve critical issues before the final release of Internet Explorer 9.
- This release will not receive automatic update notifications, and users will need to manually uninstall this preview before installing a standard shipping release of Flash Player

We are one step closer to 64-bit mainstream web browsers!

Opera Mini 5.1 for Windows Mobile

By | September 9, 2010 | 0 Comments

Opera Mini 5.1 for Windows MobileHere comes another release from Opera, as company has just announced the availability of Opera Mini 5.1 for Windows Phone 6.5, Windows Mobile 6, Windows Mobile 5, and Windows Mobile 2003 devices.

Why should you use Opera Mini instead of Opera Mobile? Well, it depends on your handset and your personal preference.

It’s a nice release with its advantages and disadvantages, when compared to Opera Mobile 10. One of such advantages is a “working” “Back” button, click on it and you are instantly surfing the previous page, while in Opera Mobile 10, it takes you back and then reloads the very same page (at least on my device). On the other hand, Opera Mini 5.1 UI appeared to be a little bit sluggish sometimes.

Opera Twitter Widget
Recently, Opera Software has released an update for its Twitter widget called “Twiget”. New version introduces quite a few UI changes, new features (including: bit.ly integration) and bug fixes.

One of the cool things about Opera’s widgets is the fact that you can simply run them outside your browser window, just like any other app.

Thanks to Twitter’s new authorization API, signing in is as easy as 1, 2, 3: launch widget, paste PIN from a newly opened web browser window and that’s pretty much it.
