Signs O' The Times

,----[ Quote ]
| 3. I am using my own laptop, as apparently 
| there isn't the budget even for mices. This 
| doesn't bother me overly, though it does 
| strike me as a tad cheeky. The upside is that 
| I'm using Ubuntu in a shared production 
| environment for the first time ever. This 
| includes GIMP, Geany, Evolution and Firefox.


Firefox 3.6 Beta 3 (Revision 3) Is Cooking

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla is cooking a new Beta Build of the 
| next iteration of its open source browser. 
| Early adopters will have a fresh revision, 
| the third one since Firefox 3.6 debuted into 
| Beta stage, available for download soon. 
| Whether referred to as Firefox 3.6 Beta 3 or 
| Firefox 3.6 Beta revision 3, the new release 
| is just around the corner. In fact, Mozilla 
| plans to release it either later today or 
| tomorrow morning. At the start of this week, 
| the company building the Firefox open source 
| browser was undecided as to the specific 
| deadline for the availability of Firefox 3.6 
| Beta 3/Revision 3. 



Mozilla desktop software is borrowing from Google e-mail features

,----[ Quote ]
| In the following few weeks Mozilla is
| introducing the new version of its
| Thunderbird, lets users keep their inbox
| clutter-free with a Gmail-like "archive"
| button for permanently storing older
| messages, while removing them from day-to-
| day sight.
| Thus, Thunderbird 3 also presents tabbed e-
| mail â compatible to tabbed browsing
| available on most Web browsers, including
| Mozilla's own Firefox. The user will get an
| ability quickly jump back and forth between
| e-mail messages by opening them in separate
| tabs.


Benchmarks Show Firefox 3.6 Fastest Version Yet

,----[ Quote ]
| Although Mozilla's Firefox 3.6 is still in
| beta, the CRN Test Center reviewers wanted
| to take a look at it because we measure the
| progress of a browser in development by
| doing a series of benchmark tests against
| each alpha, beta and final versions to
| determine whether there are performance
| improvements with each release. For
| instance, when we tested Firefox 3.6 Alpha
| 1, we were pretty impressed with the
| benchmark results.


Mozilla releases second Firefox 3.6 beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla, racing to release Firefox 3.6
| before the end of the year, has released a
| second beta of the open-source browser for
| Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
