Mozilla to release Prism, an open-source Silverlight and Adobe AIR competitor

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla is now readying the release of 
| their open-source project, Prism, which 
| will make it even easier for you to turn 
| most web pages into applications usable 
| directly from your computer.


Firefox gets a visit from the future

,----[ Quote ]
| To get a peek at one potential future for 
| Firefox, install the Strata40 theme and the 
| experimental StrataBuddy add-on. Like one 
| of those classic Superman comics that had 
| Supermen from across time teaming up to 
| defeat a dastardly villain, the add-on 
| provides the interface tweaks while the 
| theme gives Firefox the look you're looking 
| for. Several other add-ons are also 
| recommended to complete the experience: 
| AppTabs, which is similar to FaviconizeTab 
| and lets you shrink a tab down to its 
| favicon; Fission, which merges the progress 
| meter into the address bar; and Tab 
| Progress Bar, which sticks a progress meter 
| in each tab. Users should note that the key 
| feature in Tab Progress Bar is also 
| available as one of many in Tab Mix Plus, 
| and that the two add-ons are incompatible 
| with each other. 


3 Ways to Quickly Find the Tab You Need (FireFox)

,----[ Quote ]
| Find In Tab is an awesome FireFox addon 
| that adds a tiny option to CTRL+F command 
| to search through all open tabs:
|     * Clicking the âFind in Tabsâ button on 
|     the find bar will search for text in 
|     all open tabs, and show a list of 
|     search results.
|     * Clicking any of the results will jump 
|     to the tab on which it was found, and 
|     scroll directly to the highlighted 
|     text.



Pushing Prism on Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| One of Ubuntuâs most useful but rarely
| discussed features is one-click installation
| of a variety of popular webapps via Mozillaâs
| Prism. Hereâs a look at what Prism can do in
| Ubuntu, with some thoughts on why Canonical
| should work harder to push features like
| this.


Take Your Web Apps Out of the Browser with Mozilla's Prism

,----[ Quote ]
| Fresh out of the Mozilla Labs oven this week is a beta version of Prism, a
| new incarnation of WebRunner that integrates Web applications with the
| desktop. The idea behind Prism starts with from the premise that as more
| people move their computing activities to the cloud, users will become
| increasingly dependent on Web apps designed to replace locally-based email,
| calendaring, and word processing.
| The problem is, running these types of apps in a Web browser adds clutter and
| unecessary steps to what should be a straightforward user experience. Mozilla
| wants to eliminate that particular pain point and streamline the way we use
| Web-based applications.


Open source manages the Internet

,----[ Quote ]
| We've known for years that upwards of 70% of web sites use Apache to
| power their sites. We also know that much of MySQL's thriving business
| comes from "Web 2.0" companies - the web runs MySQL (and a heck of a loto
| f Linux). What has been less clear is how much of the web that we see
| is managed by open source web content management systems.
