With the launch of Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft has also put a nice video which looks back at the browser development process and initial impressions from the press.
Pwn2Own, the yearly hacking contest held as part of the CanSecWest security conference, saw the successful hijacking of fully patched versions of Safari and Internet Explorer 8 this year. Ars Technica described Pwn2Own as the following:
If a researcher can pwn the browser—that is, make it run arbitrary code—then they get to own the hardware the browser runs on. This year, not only did they have to run arbitrary code, they also had to escape any sandboxes—restricted environments with reduced access to data and the operating system—that are imposed.
The time has come yet again…
How would you change the Firefox web browser to make it better?
RockMelt, a Chromium based social browser, has been released to the public as an open beta after having been an invitation only deal for the past 122 days i.e. since November of 2010.
Delivering some quick history on the browser, RockMelt is built around the likes of Twitter, Facebook, and numerous other feeds that provide updates in the real-time.
According to Johnathan Nightingale, director of Firefox development, this release candidate embodies what the development team deems to be a finished browser.
