The verdict might still be out on whether or not the masses dig the Modern UI of Windows 8, but that hasn't stopped some developers from putting major weight behind their efforts to support it. Take Mozilla, for example, which has no intention of not given its users the option. If there's one thing that sucks, it's... Read more...
In the earlier days of the Web, our browsers were simple. If one crashed, it was likely due more to poor programming than whatever content you were viewing. The opposite can be said today, where many websites have the potential to crash any number of plugins you've got equipped - especially true for... Read more...
Mozilla's upcoming phone OS, Firefox OS, has seemingly matured a lot these past six months, and with today's announcement of developer phones soon to be available, its final release can't be too far off.

Someone fire up the theme song from Austin Powers, Mozilla found its mojo on the desktop -- oh, behave! Mozilla made the claim in a blog post reflecting on 2012 and all the advancements it's been able to make to its Firefox browser. "We streamlined and we upgraded. Our performance and memory teams didn't incredible work," Mozilla said. "The... Read more...
When Mozilla dropped the latest version of its Firefox browser for Android on November 19th, it just seemed like any other update. If you're like me and have a couple of apps every single day wanting updates, it really doesn't leave much time to look into what's new with every one of them. Apparently Mozilla realizes...

Thanks in part to the lack of stability and plugin support, Mozilla's Engineering Manager Benjamin Smedberg has requested that developers stop building 64-bit versions of Firefox. If the idea of a 64-bit Firefox sounds strange, it's likely because it's not something Mozilla ever promoted. Instead, it was left up to... Read more...
Want to take Mozilla's upcoming Firefox OS for a spin? You're in luck, because the developers have released a simulator called "r2d2b2g", or b2g for short, that allows you to install an .xpi extension inside of a desktop version of Firefox and see what it is that Mozilla has up its sleeves.

The open source mavens at Mozilla are busy putting the final touches on "Firefox Marketplace," a place where Firefox users will be able to download Web apps similar to Google's Web Store for Chrome.

One of the downsides to Mozilla's rapid release schedule for Firefox is that new updates are at risk of being rushed to the public before they're ready for prime time. We're not sure if that's what happened here, but we do know that Mozilla yanked Firefox 16 from the web just a few hours after posting the download... Read more...
Just in time for some last-minute testing, Mozilla has released the first preview of its Firefox Web browser built for Windows 8's 'Modern UI' interface. Admittedly, 'Modern UI' doesn't quite roll off the tongue like 'Metro', so Mozilla has decided to stick with the term despite Microsoft's opposition to it... Read more...
Ready or not, yet another mobile operating system is about to join the fray. Perhaps you've heard of Firefox OS, otherwise known as Boot to Gecko (B2G).

Mozilla on Monday is expected to announce that it's no longer going to develop its popular Thunderbird email client, leaving such chores to the open source community at large.

Apple's iOS platform isn't without its selection of third party browsers, including ones that can handle Flash content (albeit not very well, in our experience). But one browser maker that has yet to join the iOS party is Mozilla, the company behind Firefox, and guess what? Mozilla has something brewing for the iPad. It's called "Junior,"... Read more...
Favicons may seem harmless enough, but according to Mozilla, they can be pretty dangerous. The problem, as Mozilla explains it, is that pesky Web miscreants intentionally misuse and abuse favicons in order to do harm to your PC. How so, you ask? "While the favicon can represent a piece of a site’s identity... Read more...
Remember when Firefox releases were a big deal? You wouldn't know it nowadays, but there was a time when browser upgrades were few, far between, and highly anticipated.
