[News] Firefox Gets Minimalist in Forks and Variants

Hash: SHA1

- From Firefox to Fennec: Mozilla Has Surprises In Store

,----[ Quote ]
| Does the browser in the iPhone have this advantage available? No. If Google 
| delivers a mobile version of Chrome, does Chrome have the extension 
| advantage? No. I'm not surprised that Mozilla continues to talk Fennec up, 
| including its efforts to get the TraceMonkey engine working with ARM 
| processors (found in many mobile devices). The company has worked doggedly to 
| make it a browser that performs well, has been working on touchscreen 
| interfaces,  and as Fennec is finalized, I expect extensions for it to be 
| what really puts the wind at its back, relative to the competition.       


Minimalist Firefox Goes Black

| Reader and desktop tweaker extraordinaire Kaelri—who designed the popular 
| Lightning at Sunset Windows desktop—is back at it, this time with a 
| beautifully customized Firefox installation. The homepage you see above—which 
| links straight to Google Contacts, Maps, Calendar, Gmail, etc.—is the result 
| of some very light Firefox tweaking. Keep reading for a closer look at what 
| he used to pull it off.     



Think Firefox 3 is fast? Try Firefox Minefield

,----[ Quote ]
| You can download the latest nightly build for Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows,
| but be warned: it's alpha code. While a quick scan of the Web shows few
| complaints as to stability, Minefield may not be for you. It doesn't support
| some of my favorite Firefox extensions (like Adblock Plus), but it actually
| has surprisingly good support for extensions, given that it's a fast-moving
| project.


First look: Mozilla's mobile Fennec browser

| It is good to see Mozilla putting significant resources and effort into the
| mobile space. Mozilla changed the desktop browser marketplace; I hope its
| influence on mobile browsing will be even bigger.


Mozilla Firefox 3.1 on Its Way to Setting Web Video Standard

,----[ Quote ]
| Firefox has a huge user base and acceptance from web developers, which
| theoretically makes Mozilla less vulnerable to submarine patent lawsuits, as
| companies would risk in terms of image if such actions were taken, as
| Mitchell Baker commented at the Products and Technology Roadmap Mozilla
| Summit session. Mike Shaver, Mozilla’s Interim VP of Engineering,
| added, "Somebody had to do it. It’s good it was us."

Firefox for Mobile: first screenshots!

,----[ Quote ]
| The Awesome Bar, which lets you search for pages intuitively and directly, is
| prominent, though can clearly be tidied away for a more screen estate for the
| web page itself.

| version of the popular desktop Web browser. A beta release could be available
| by year-end.
