[News] In Praise of Mozilla and Firefox -- New Versions and Themes

Hash: SHA1

Back to the Summit: A chat with John Lilly, Mozilla CEO

,----[ Quote ]
| During the last Mozilla Summit, in past July, I had the chance to talk face 
| to face with many mozillians for the first time. 
| If anything, I have to say the Mozilla community is a very friendly bunch of 
| people to be with. All of them very compromised with the particular role each 
| one plays in the very large Mozilla ecosystem, resulting in a very inspiring 
| experience knowing that there’s no small role to play as long as you play it 
| well.    


10 Cool and Funny Firefox Video Ads

| Firefox is the only web browser in the world that has tons of enthusiastic 
| followers. I've seen desktop wallpapers, icons, t-shirts, graffiti, and even 
| tattoos that are dedicated to Firefox. But it didn't stop there. Just 
| recently, I saw some videos on YouTube that promotes the use of Firefox.   


Minimal Firefox

| Used Hide Caption by Ji Shiping, to hide the title bar. Cons: have to aim 
| below the window control buttons to move the window; need a Mozilla Add-ons 
| account to download.  


3 Ways to Find Pages Fast with Firefox 3

,----[ Quote ]
| The Firefox 3 “awesome bar” generally does a good job of finding the web page 
| you want when you start typing into it. With its ability to look into your 
| history, go to a URL, or trigger a search of the web, it offers multiple 
| avenues to get to where you want to go. But it can still be improved. If you 
| find yourself navigating around the web on a frequent basis (and what web 
| worker doesn’t?) here are a selection of ways to supercharge your searching.     


Firefox Themes: The Contention Between Visual Hierarchy and Toolbar

,----[ Quote ]
| When we were receiving feedback during the development of the Windows themes 
| for Firefox 3, one question tended to come up a lot: 


The dark (theme) side of Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| For those inclined to black or dark desktops, here are six nice Firefox 
| themes you want to give a try. 
| Pictured here on Windows XP with the Royal Noir theme for darker effect. All 
| available from Mozilla Add-ons, but for those marked experimental you will 
| need an account.  



Review: Firefox 3.1 Beta Leaves IE in Ashes

,----[ Quote ]
| Firefox 3.1 is the fastest version yet. One of our favorite sites to use for
| testing is papervision3d.org because it is so graphics heavy. Firefox 3.1
| took 25 seconds to fully load. Compare this to our last Firefox 3 review on
| the same machine, Firefox 3 took 45 seconds to load the site's 3D image.
| The browser is unquestionably fast. It also comes with some new features,
| many of them under-the-hood and dealing with advanced CSS capabilities, but
| there are some new interface features as well. For instance, Cntrl-tab has
| been added as a shortcut to quickly switch between tabs. Also, tabs can be
| dragged and dropped between Mozilla windows, a feature that works well and
| smoothly.
| [...]
| The performance in this version is superb. It will be interesting to keep an
| eye out to see if any security exploits are discovered.


Hands on: Fennec alpha 1 puts Firefox on your handheld

,----[ Quote ]
| I tested the Fennec alpha on my Nokia N810 running Diablo, the latest stable
| version of the Maemo platform. Mozilla is currently using the Nokia Internet
| Tablet devices as the reference platform for public testing of Fennec. Users
| who do not own one of the Nokia devices can also download a version that runs
| in a window on regular desktop computers, much like an XULRunner application.


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."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
