Firefox 3 Alpha 6 Soon to Come

By | June 18, 2007 | 1 Comment

If you knew or not, Firefox 3 Alpha 6 will be released on June 29, 2007.

It’s still a long way to go till we see Firefox 3 Final release.

Previous Firefox 3 release (Alpha 5) offered a first look to it’s brand new bookmarks, history and other page information storing/management system.

As always, latest release will fix many bugs, which you can report here and maybe some other announced features.

I am waiting with excitement. Latest FireFox 3 version (Alpha 5) you can download here.

Is Mozilla News Page Outdated?

By | June 18, 2007 | 0 Comments

So I was looking for some news regarding Firefox and found their “Press Releases and Announcements” page.

However, I am not able to find any information about Firefox 2.0.0.4 even if it was released some time ago.

That’s not a big thing, but they should announce it there.

Upcoming Safari Web Browser Features

By | June 17, 2007 | 0 Comments

I’ve recently noticed a list of upcoming Safari 3.x features and thought about posting them here. So here you go:

  • Support for International users
  • International text input methods
  • Advanced text (contextual forms, international scripts)
  • Localized menus and help
  • NTLM support
  • PAC file auto-detection
  • FTP directory listings
  • Link to proxy settings from Safari (Safari respects the proxy settings in the Windows Internet control panel)
  • Cookie management
  • LiveConnect support
  • Tooltips
  • Spell checking
  • Printing page numbers, titles, margins

Some of those features looks promising. I wonder if spell check will be like Opera browser 9.2 and previous or Firefox style (in-line spell checker). If they would make it “in-line”, this could really help them to grab some more share. We are waiting for more news…

Safari Beta 3.0.1 for Windows Released

By | June 17, 2007 | 2 Comments

Apple.com just released new Safari version: 3.0.1 which you can download now.

This version fixes Windows specify issues and most important: security issues.

I’ve downloaded Safari Beta 3.0.0 for Windows right after it was released. However, I wasn’t been able to test it, as all what I saw was menus with no text and other buggy stuff.

I really don’t know why, but this version doesn’t work for me either. I can’t enter address in the address bar or use quick search. All I know, that I am not the only one, who is experiencing such a problems.

Safari Beta Problems

I am not sure why this happens, but hope it will be fixed soon.

Opera Team Will Develope Flash Replacement

By | June 16, 2007 | 0 Comments

Confused already? You won’t be after reading this article.

Opera Software vice president Tatsuki Tomita confirmed rumors, that they are developing Adobe Flash replacemement for Opera Mini and Mobile versions.

Why they are doing that? As you know, performance is really important
in the mobile phones, however, current flash technology seems using too much CPU and memory resources which slows down mobile phones and make their battery last less.

It’s not officially known yet if this new replacement will be able to play Flash too. Waiting for more news in the future.

As for now, I’d like to congratulate Opera team for such a decision.

Opera Mini Dimension Release Date Revealed

By | June 15, 2007 | 0 Comments

Are you interested already? You should be. Worlds most popular Java application developers just annonced (finally) a release date of Opera Mini Dimension (Beta).

If you were subscribed to notifications, check your email,
otherwise, here’s a copy:

The time has come: Opera Mini Dimension is set to release on Tuesday, June 19th. We’re excited to share it with everyone who has signed up thus far.
You will be some of the first to see what we’ve been working so hard to bring you over the past year.
While we can’t wait to show what we’ve developed, what really encourages us is the impact Opera Mini continues to have on people’s lives.
Just over a year ago, browsing on your mobile meant either buying a shiny expensive phone or laboring through tedious WAP content. Opera Mini broke the rules and gave people the freedom to get the real Web on their favorite phones. Now, people expect and deserve the same Web, access to their favorite sites, the ability to check email, blog or do whatever they want, wherever they are. That has been our mission at Opera since the beginning – to break down barriers to access. It would not be possible though without the support of our users in helping to spread the word. For that we remain grateful.
Please enjoy the new Dimension coming out in just 5 days, and counting…
Go to Dimension here
Give feedback here
Look forward to see you on operamini.com on Tuesday.

Now that’s a great news.

So you want to know more about new features now? :-) Wel…

I already know most of them, but can’t post them in the public, as there is a contest going on.

I am really excited.
