It looks like Microsoft needs to hire a set of new plumbers as Windows 8 details (and builds) are constantly leaked to the net.
The latest one, Windows 8 Build 9385, among other things includes an updated version of Internet Explorer 11, which hints at a new user interface for developer tools.
Windows 8.1 build 9385 also includes improved developer tools for IE11, with a new interface for accessing debugging and other options.
Now here is something for the Firefox web developers. If you’ve been looking for an easy tool to quickly parse the color scheme of the web site that suits your taste (from images and CSS), then “Rainbow Color Tools” is the add-on you’ve been waiting for.

With the impending launch of Firefox OS, it looks like Mozilla is working on a new payment system API, which aims to simply and secure the process.

If you haven’t played Contre Jour already, grab your headphones and check it out.
Over the WebRTC, which doesn’t seem to be standardized.
Back in 2012, WebRTC, Google’s proposed web standard for audio, video chat and P2P file transfers, has gained a wide acceptance among various web browser vendors, including: Firefox, Opera, Maxthon and Google Chrome. While Apple is yet to implement and comment on WebRTC, Microsoft did raise some concerns and suggested their own web standard. That was back in August.

If you had a PC in the 90s, there is a high probability that hearing someone say “Westwood Studios” will send shivers down your spine. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. The studios were later bought out by the EA Games, a lot of people left to join Petroglyph Games, Command & Conquer franchise was turned into a joke and your childhood memories were pushed down the drain.
