Google move paves way for Firefox on Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Google's move to let software run natively on Android devices opens the door 
| for a version of Firefox that can run on the operating system. 
| At present, Android applications are written in Java and run on Google's 
| Dalvik Java virtual machine. Last week, though, Google announced the Android 
| Native Development Kit version 1.0 that lets software run natively on the 
| Linux layer below, though the company sees it as a way not to run 
| full-fledged applications as much as to run components of ordinary Android 
| applications.     
| "Android applications run in the Dalvik virtual machine. The NDK allows 
| developers to implement parts of these applications using native-code 
| languages such as C and C++," said Google's David Turner in a Native 
| Developer Kit blog post.

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a new feature to the source "Syntax Highlighting" when you "View
| Page Source", it now let's you navigate through any file in the source by
| clicking on them like links. A good feature here would be to add the support
| to have tabs in the source window.


Mozilla solicits user feedback with Test Pilot

| More critically, much of the best input to any product, open- or
| closed-source, would come from average users who provide usability and other
| input, but this is precisely the sort of person that has no idea how to write
| software, despite being the likely day-to-day customers of software.


Fennec, Mozilla's Mobile Browser, Marches On

,----[ Quote ]
| Just as Android is heading for multiple types of hardware platforms, Fennec
| should too. This project remains one to watch, and I'm looking forward to
| moving beyond the screencasts and videos and working with the beta next
| month.
