[News] Firefox 4.x Ideas and Features, 3.1 Closer to Release

Hash: SHA1

Top 3 Mozilla Firefox 4 Features For Next Generation Browsing Experience

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla Firefox needs no special mention to anyone who is associated with 
| internet. Perhaps the fastest and most reliable browser in this world is the 
| most popular one too as they achieved the Guiness Book of World Records for 
| most download in a single day. The key to their success has been continuous 
| improvement of the browser and large committed group of high-quality 
| developers, which Mozilla Foundation could cheaply leverage due to the open 
| source nature of the product. Mozilla Foundation surely do not believe in 
| resting on their laurels. Mozilla Firefox 4 suits the idiom perfectly as it 
| is coming up with some features we could have never imagined in a browser. So 
| let us sneak into that world.         


Tree now closed for Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 “slushy freeze”

,----[ Quote ]
| The tree will be held closed until at least Tuesday of next week as the 
| Firefox 3.1 and Gecko 1.9.1 teams fix regressions and polish things up for 
| the beta. At that point we will branch for release and return the 
| mozilla-central tree to normal sheriff control while we enforce stricter 
| controls on the Firefox 3.1/Gecko 1.9.1 branch. The exact branching mechanism 
| is to be decided - watch mozilla.dev.planning for discussion.     


How Can I Sync My Firefox Installations?

,----[ Quote ]
| As it turns out, there are several ways you can go about syncing Firefox so 
| that you've got the exact same browser—history, extension, bookmarks, 
| passwords, and all—no matter where you're working.  



Firefox memory usage and memory leak news

,----[ Quote ]
| Many Mozilla community members, including both volunteers and Mozilla
| Corporation employees, have been helping to reduce Firefox's memory usage and
| fix memory leak bugs lately. Hopefully, the result of this effort will be
| that Firefox 3 uses less memory than Firefox 2 did, especially after it has
| been used for several hours.    


“Beautiful” tab switching for Firefox 3

,----[ Quote ]
| Performance-wise, CPU usage spiked from 2-3% to 45-50% during high speed tab
| switching (that is, I kept Ctrl + Tab pressed for a while), but immediately
| went back to previous cool 2-3% usage.  
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 is expected within the next couple of weeks.


Firefox 3: A look at its new security features

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular Web browsers around today. But
| what does the Mozilla team have in store for us along security lines?


Update on the Firefox 3 Linux Theme

,----[ Quote ]
| Work on the new linux theme for Firefox 3 is progressing nicely due to a very
| active group of contributers. To match the operating system’s theme,
| Firefox’s navigation toolbar will use native GTK icons.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
