,----[ Quote ]
| Developing a browser for mobile devices is 
| no easy task, just ask the good people at 
| Mozilla. Late last week, Mozilla released 
| Firefox Mobile 1.0, but don't run to your 
| Apple, Android or Blackberry AppStore just 
| yet it is only available for the Nokia N900 
| and its Linux-based Maemo platform.

| too excited because as of the moment, it is 
| only available for Nokia's Maemo5 platform.

| browser Firefox - has announced the launch

Firefox 3.6 for Developers

,----[ Quote ]
| Typically when a new browser release comes 
| out, the end-user features get a big press 
| lovefest and the developer goodies are 
| generally glazed over. While the obvious 
| bits are good to know about, the developer 
| story is every bit as important.
| A lot of the goodies in Firefox 3.6 arenât 
| for users at all. Well, they are but 
| theyâre things that users will see or 
| interact with directly, or notice. Of 
| course, when I say âusers,â I mean âusers 
| who arenât Web developers.â Web developers 
| have quite a few things to like in Firefox 
| 3.6. Letâs take a look at some of the 
| under-the-hood improvements in 3.6


Could Apple's iPad be the New Firefox?

,----[ Quote ]
| Some see this criticism as an elitist way 
| of looking at things â born of the hacker 
| world's resentment at the loss of power the 
| democratising iPad implies. As Fraser 
| Speirs puts it:
| The Visigoths are at the gate of the city. 
| They're demanding access to software. 
| they're demanding to be in control of their 
| own experience of information. They may not 
| like our high art and culture, they may be 
| really into OpenGL boob-jiggling apps and 
| they may not always share our sense of 
| aesthetics, but they are the people we have 
| claimed to serve for 30 years whilst 
| screwing them over in innumerable ways. 
| There are also many, many more of them than 
| us.

| In place of Internet Explorer, I suggest 
| Firefox; no news here. But, it does need 
| some work out of the box.

| Mozilla is expected to push out an update

| the first release candidate into their Nokia
| N900 or N810 devices. You can also download
| the RC2 directly from the mobile browser.
