Mozilla Messaging building nest for Thunderbird 3.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla Messaging has published a proposed 
| schedule for Thunderbird 3.1, the next 
| release of the popular e-mail client. The 
| organization is refining its development 
| process and could potentially shift 
| towards shorter release cycles and a more 
| incremental approach to development.


Browsers of Europe

,----[ Quote ]
| The fact that browser distribution is not 
| randomly distributed across European 
| countries, but appears to closely follow 
| traditional regional boundaries is 
| somewhat surprising and suggests that 
| there are significant cultural factors 
| that affect browser choice.  Note for 
| example the large gap that StatCounter 
| shows between Germany with ~60% Firefox 
| and ~25% IE (so over 2:1) and its 
| neighbors France with 55~60% IE and 30~35% 
| Firefox and Denmark ~60% IE and ~25% 
| Firefox (basically the opposite).  


Festive Firefox Friday: 2009 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Instead of bringing you Firefox-related 
| news from the last seven days, this is an 
| entire recap of Firefox in the year of 
| 2009. It's been a big year for that cute 
| little red panda and 2010 will be just as 
| exciting if not more so!

The 10 best new Firefox add-ons of 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| This past year felt like a rebuilding year 
| for Firefox add-ons, with two new 
| frameworks implemented to help guide the 
| future of extensions. Personas gave 
| Firefox on-the-fly theme-switching, and 
| users can expect it to be part of the 
| stable version of Firefox 3.6 when that 
| gets released. Jetpack takes a similarly-
| minded approach to feature add-ons, 
| allowing programmers to create feature-
| rich add-ons from little more than HTML, 
| CSS, and JavaScript. Expect JetPack to 
| eventually be part of Firefox by default.


Firefox vs. Chrome

,----[ Quote ]
| The first release of Chrome browser was 
| held in 2008, then a new Google project 
| looked quite weak and very few people saw 
| him as a serious competitor. Nevertheless, 
| for the year the situation has changed 
| dramatically, if not, it is very much in 
| mass Chrome 4.0 implemented improvements 
| and even the opportunity to install 
| extensions. So how Google is developing 
| its own browser, suggests that with each 
| update it looks increasingly to Firefox. 
| Now, these programs do not seem 
| competitive, even according to Net 
| Applications, they do not affect the 
| market share of each other.


Thunderbird 3 comes up with new search interface

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest version of the popular open-
| source desktop email client, Thunderbird 
| 3, was finally released a few days ago and 
| it sports a range of new or improved 
| features like better search and a tabbed 
| interface (download site: 
| http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-
| US/thunderbird). It had been in the making 
| for about two years.
| The organisation behind it is Mozilla 
| Messaging, a subsidiary of the Mozilla 
| Foundation that promotes the web browser 
| Firefox. Most heavy email users might find 
| managing the voluminous inflow and outflow 
| of messages a daunting challenge. The 
| latest version of Thunderbird has come up 
| with a new search interface, which 
| includes filtering and timeline tools that 
| help users dig out fast the messages they 
| were looking for.



Firefox gains share, IE loses

,----[ Quote ]
| Other browsers posted slight gains in August, including Apple's own
| Safari (+.03 percent to 3.21) and Opera +.05 percent to 0.64).
