The past couple of years have been pretty good to Yahoo's search business, but there's no doubt that the company isn't too pleased about Google's continued domination. With a new major partnership between it and Mozilla, though, the company's growth in search is sure to continue - perhaps at an even more accelerated... Read more...
Mozilla is a company that cares a lot about developers - especially those who make the Web a better, more exciting place. Over the years, the company's done much to aide developers who work towards that goal, and today, even the standard Firefox browser includes a number of useful tools that can be used to quickly...

Despite having been available on the market for over two-and-a-half years, it seems like the hype surrounding the Raspberry Pi has waned very little. Every once in a while, we'll be reminded of just how cool and capable the micro-PC is, with one example coming to us just last week, with the announcement that an... Read more...
Hot on the heels of Google making a native 64-bit version of Chrome available back in August, Mozilla has let loose the fact that an official 64-bit build of Firefox is coming. It's about time, too - even Internet Explorer has had a native 64-bit version for quite some time. To be fair, a 64-bit version of Firefox hasn't been hard to come... Read more...
There's been a great deal of Windows 9-related news this past week, but now, we have what's sure to be the most interesting: September 30th will be when we get our first real preview of what's coming. According to Re/code, Microsoft will be holding an event in which it wants you to, "Join us to hear about what's next... Read more...
The next version of Internet Explorer might look more like the competition rather than a retooled version of itself. Scheduled to debut in Windows 9 (codenamed Threshold), Internet Explorer 12 (IE12) is said to look like a "cross between Chrome and Firefox" as part of a massive overhaul to the user interface that will...

Of all the things that Windows 8 brought to the table, it's the much-maligned Start Screen that seems to get most of the attention. That's unfortunate, because there were many other aspects of the OS that made it a major release. Take for example the fact that it was the first version of Windows to include an app... Read more...
It's been a mini-roller coaster ride for Google's Chrome browser, which flirted with surpassing the 20 percent market share threshold around this time two years ago. Fast forward to today and Chrome has finally managed to leap over the hurdle, landing at 20.37 percent to close out the month of July, according to the... Read more...
As appreciated as new Web browser versions are, there's often very little for an end-user to pay attention to - unless, of course, bug fixes and back-end enhancements excite you. With Firefox 29, though, Mozilla's delivered a genuinely exciting release - one that's so good, I'm starting to wonder if it's time to make... Read more...
Gay marriage rights is one of the most potent issues of today, and strong feelings from both sides have spilled over into Mozilla’s boardroom. Mozilla promoted Brendan Eich from CTO to CEO last week, but when it was revealed that Eich donated $1,000 to the Prop 8 effort (legislation to ban gay marriage in... Read more...
This shouldn't come as a complete shock to anyone who's been around the online block a time or two, but no web browser is 100 percent secure. That much was once again proven at the annual Pwn2Own hacking event held at the CanSecWest security conference. By the second day of the event, every major browser had fallen --... Read more...
You know those blank tiles on your Firefox homepage when you first start using the web browser? Mozilla is rolling out a program to make it so those tiles aren’t blank anymore; instead, they’ll be filled with ads. The company announced the change in a blog post using language that obfuscates at first blush what’s going on.... Read more...
After the revelations came forth of NSA spying this past summer, few companies jumped to action quite like Mozilla. Without much delay, the company patched-up a specific exploit in Firefox that the NSA had taken advantage of, and since then, it's been amping up security in other ways, such as with disabling cookies by...

Mozilla's touch-friendly version of Firefox intended for Windows 8 tablets has graduated out of the Nightly development channel and is now available to download from the browser maker's Aurora channel. The next step is to release a beta build before a final coat of polish is applied to a stable release. In the... Read more...
Isn't it amazing how fast time can fly, sometimes? It sure doesn't feel like five full years ago (at least, to me) when Google took the veil off of its own vision of a Web browser, but what a five years it has been. Today, Google Chrome enjoys a healthy 17% of the marketshare's pie, and it seems certain that its... Read more...
Microsoft set out to change the world with Windows 8, and little by little, its influence is spreading in the tech industry. We've seen a handful of software vendors retool their product's interface to match that of Windows 8, and come December, Mozilla will ship an updated version of Firefox sporting a Modern UI look...

One of the most frustrating things on earth is being censored, and if there's one group that likes to be vocal in battling such things, it's The Pirate Bay. Censorship can come in many forms, however, such as restricting what you can say in public, or which websites you can visit. TPB might not be able to take care of... Read more...
One of the worst things about Web security - and perhaps security in general - is that many people don't pay any attention to it. When Chrome, or another Web browser, asks you to store a password, do you happen to think about how it's stored, or how vulnerable it may leave you? A number of years ago, when I was... Read more...
Linux users have long been able to claim that their platform of choice is about as safe as an OS can get, but that sentiment is getting a little harder to side with thanks to the recent discovery of the 'Hand of Thief' trojan - it's a bad one, so listen up. Hand of Thief's goal is to lead you to financial ruin by... Read more...
Another month is in the books, thereby giving us another opportunity to examine the state of the browser wars as summer winds down and the back-to-school season comes within sight. The story that unfolds when looking at browser statistics depends on which research firm's numbers you examine, as Net Market Share and... Read more...
These days, it's getting fairly tough to even keep up with the editions of new browsers. Mozilla's Firefox, for example, is already up to v23 in the Beta channel. For those who are fine installing a product that hasn't been fully tested, Firefox 23 (Beta) offers up support for the new scrollbar style in Mac OS X 10.7... Read more...
As we discussed last month, Mozilla postponed the introduction of automatic third-party cookie blocking in its Firefox Web browser, citing the obvious: it was too hasty in its decision. Well, that hastiness appears to have worn off, as now, the company has plans to rollout the do not track change to Firefox in the... Read more...
