Even though 64 bit operating systems are becoming a standard in today’s computing world, Mozilla’s Director of Firefox (Mike Beltzner) revealed that company has no plans to release 64 bit Firefox 4 final build in the near future.
Early in the summer we decided to not yet provide supported 64-bit builds on Windows, and will instead work on delivering those in some future release.
If only we had a 64-bit Flash Player build for all the platforms…
Here is an amazing video that shows off the capabilities of HTML5 on Bing search engine.

As Firefox 4 Final nears its release, Mozilla released the fifth beta of its Firefox 4 web browser.
One of the key features in this version is a support for Direct2D hardware acceleration on Windows 7 machines that is now enabled by default.
Furthermore, Beta 5 introduces audio API which uses HTML5 (see video below), implementation of the HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) as well as hundreds of bug fixes and other improvements.
Here 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.
Here is a simple guide on how to get Google Instant Search to work on Opera.
1. Open Google.com
2. Right Click > Edit Site Preferences
3. Select “Network” tab, find “Browser identification” option and choose “Identify as Firefox”
4. That’s it!
P.S. Be sure to enable Instant (as seen in picture above).
