More Great Stuff In Firefox 3

By | August 11, 2007 | 4 Comments

Firefox team keeps adding great features and last nightly build is not an exception.

What you can do now is see installed plug-ins in very friendly way, also enable or disable them, for example: Flash and/or DivX players.

Here how it looks:
Firefox 3 Add-ons, Plug-ins

Using Firefox 2 you can type about:plugins (in the address bar) and get similar information but in not so friendly way. Actually, you will see more than a few lines of text. Seems Firefox teem playing trying to make Firefox 3 as friendly as possible.

Just Another Opera 9.5 Topic :-)

By | August 10, 2007 | 17 Comments

It’s Friday and seems there won’t be any Opera 9.5 build today. But that’s not the main point. Today I’ve asked then they will provide any more information about Opera 9.5. I am just curious, that’s not a crime (I hope so). After few minutes my question was deleted (even all other times it wasn’t), so maybe Opera Destop Team are just too tired to answer questions about Opera 9.5. Anyway, just a friendly advice: you could save more time by writing 1 line with text “No Opera 9.5 this week” instead of deleting people questions (me included) :-)

Opera 9.5. Is Tomorrow That Day?

By | August 9, 2007 | 6 Comments

Everyone is waiting for the very first Opera 9.5 public release. Tomorrow we should have another weekly or just some more news, so maybe Opera team will release it tomorrow? Since we are waiting for so long I think that it won’t be released tomorrow. Why not? My guess is that to get more time on Opera 9.5 polishing they will release Opera 9.23 Final as Opera 9.23 weekly (not a final version) was released last week already.

Oh well… I can be wrong, let’s wait and see.

Firefox 3 Alpha 8 Pre

Yesterday Firefox team released yet another nightly version of Firefox 3 web browser.

Besides various bugs fixes, you can find some great improvements as well. Now you can resize your Firefox search and location bars which allow users to customize their Firefox 3 Alpha 8 Pre bars in any way they want. However, that’s not the only one great improvement. Firefox team made one more makeover. It’s a Vista menus look.

No More Than 10 Days To Release Critical Patch

By | August 8, 2007 | 2 Comments

“Ten Fuc*ing Days”. That’s what Mozilla said.

That’s right, they’ve said that they can release any critical patch within 10 days or faster. Firefox 2.0.0.6 was released even faster than 10 days (after security flaws were discovered). So they are not just using some tricks (or do they?), it’s already proven, we will see how fast they will release next one.

In my point of view, before using such statements they should also fix other security vulnerabilities. Even if they are not the most critical ones.

Details About IronMonkey And ScreamingMonkey

By | August 8, 2007 | 0 Comments

Hello everyone,
Sorry for not writing anything interested in a past few days, I was in some kind of not planned vacation. Anyways, time for the news.

Mozilla team updated us by providing more details about IronMonkey and ScreamingMonkey. Here are some quotes from their post.

The critical, core, component of this is the Tamarin virtual machine (which is an Open Sourced version of the ActionScript Virtual Machine that powered the Adobe Flash Player). Tamarin already supports ECMAScript 3 (and, thusly, JavaScript, ActionScript, and JScript) and parts of the upcoming ECMAScript 4 specification.

JavaScript will no longer be the only viable scripting language in browsers that use that Tamarin engine. At the very least, there’ll be two more languages to work with.

ScreamingMonkey is the effort, being led by Mark Hammond, to allow the Tamarin engine to run within non-Mozilla browsers, starting with Internet Explorer.

ScreamingMonkey Planning Notes.

That’s a brief, here’s a full story to read (if you want to).
