Microsoft Edge To Receive Tab PreviewsHopefully, extensions are not far away too.

As we all wait for the next Windows 10 Insider Preview, during Ignire keynote at New Zealand, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore has accidentally revealed one of the upcoming Edge features: tab previews.

How exactly did this happen? During the event, Joe was simply demoing Cortana and the way it enhances your searches when he accidentally moved mouse on one of the tabs, resulting in a thumbnail preview picture. While ignoring at first, Belfiore later did state that “there’s one other thing in the Edge browser that I mistakenly revealed as I was doing this [showcasing Cortana on Edge] is a small feature we have not shown anyone yet but is coming to our Insider builds really soon and that is this tab preview feature,”

AdBlock Browser Now On Apple's IOS, Android Beta EndsMight be bit too late.

After announcing AdBlock Browser some time ago, it looks like it has finally been released (prior the Apple’s event) on iPads, iPhones and iPods.

However, with the release of iOS 9, its main selling point is no longer that great as the latest Safari version supports content blocking extensions.

As far as AdBlock Browser itself goes, just like with extensions, you can whitelist particular sites to keep web owners from becoming homeless. In addition to that, it claims to save data and up to 20% of battery life when you block tracking cookies and social media sharing buttons.

Mozilla’s Bugzilla Compromised, Sensitive Data StolenDoes not appear to be as bad as one might think.
