A long time ago, Opera has released an experimental browser build that supports everyone’s loved hardware acceleration.
However, ever since then, there was little to no talk regarding estimated release date of the public build.
Chrome users began reporting the specious detection of the browser early Friday in a quickly growing thread on a Google support forum.
Numerous users complained in Google Forums about the warnings they received in Microsoft Security Essentials, a free, consumer grade anti virus software from Microsoft. According to various reports, WSE identified a problem with Google Chrome web browser and has tagged it as: PWS:Win32/Zbot.
Remember Amazon’s new web browser Silk that is being included with the Kindle Fire? Well, it’s gotten some security and privacy experts to start thinking!
In a short FAQ about Silk, Amazon conveyed that it will handle the encrypted traffic between consumers and websites secured with SSL (secure socket layer), such as log in pages, other shopping sites, and online banking sessions.
Includes Twitter search and more.
Despite the last week’s Firefox 7 Final announcement, Mozilla has been working hard and already finished the Firefox 8 Beta build for you to play with.
Although you might expect just some minor changes, don’t be fooled, it includes more than that:
- Twitter Search is now in the default search engines list.
Ain’t I lucky? I decided to do an absolutely fresh installation of Firefox 7 and would obviously have to reinstall my extensions and skins. The thing is, none of the extensions will download. This is making me sad, as Firefox has got some excellent extensions. Let’s hope that Mozilla fixes the issue soon as it has been several hours now. Click the image to witness my misery!
