Being the most commonly used browser in the universe has its positives, but there's also a downside: when an exploit is found, it needs to be patched in a hurry. Otherwise, a huge, huge amount of people sit at risk, and your brand could suffer. Microsoft is no stranger to issuing patches, and Internet Explorer has certainly seen its fair share... Read more...
Microsoft's Internet Explorer has a huge advantage in the browser wars because it ships with every copy of Windows, which is why the European Union forced the software maker to offer a so-called browser ballot on new Windows PCs. What's interesting, however, is that even though IE is usually the default option on most... Read more...
Poor Bing. Microsoft's search engine has been having quite the challenge in trying to inch closer to Google's marketshare, and incidents like this ongoing one do little to help. If you try to visit the secure version of Bing (using https:// instead of http://) right now, you'll be greeted to an error instead of the... Read more...
In the midst of Google's Android growth, Chrome explosion, Chromebook entries and Fiber roll-outs, it's actually easy to forget that Google does other things as well. There's search, Glass, and energy. Yes, energy. Google has been dabbling in energy for some time now, which makes sense given the tremendous amount of... Read more...
There's been much talk about security on Android in recent months, and it seems likely that it's a subject we won't be dropping anytime soon. Recently, we discovered that Android is susceptible to simple email attachment attacks, and not long before that, Google detailed how it was keeping its Google Play store more... Read more...
It's clear that where security's concerned, Google is on top of things. The company has no desire to be compromised, or have its users compromised, and so it's doing a variety of things to make sure incidents are kept to a minimum. Last fall, we learned of Google's app scanner utility - included in Android 4.2+ -... Read more...
Staunch Chrome and Firefox users aren't going to like this statement, but Internet Explorer has won the browser war, or so it seems. It wasn't always a foregone conclusion that IE would win. After the demise of Netscape, Firefox emerged as the first legitimate threat to IE's throne, and then Chrome came along and... Read more...
It’s the little things that make the biggest differences, isn’t it? Google announced the latest release of its Chrome browser, and the premiere new feature is spell check.

Last week, Google said Andy Rubin will be moving to an undefined role within the company and Sundar Pichai will take over Rubin's responsibilities. Rubin is well-known as the architect of Android. Pichai was, and will continue to be, in charge of Google's Chrome web browser and other applications such as Google Drive... Read more...
We talked earlier this week about all of the software that lost their battles against the hackers at the Pwn2Own competition in Vancouver, Canada, but lest we forget about the sister competition, Pwnium 3. This particular competition was heavily sponsored by Google, with the company paying well more than $100,000 per... Read more...
You've got to love hacker conferences. Software vulnerabilities are never going away, that much is obvious, but it's with competitions at hacker conferences where we can really see just how vulnerable the software we use every single day is. Putting this into perspective, prior to the Pwn2Own conference in Canada... Read more...

In other Google news for today, the search giant announced the latest update to Chrome (Chrome 25), which adds voice recognition capabilities via the Web Speech API. The API is intended for developers, who can bake in speech recognition to their web apps; Google mentions the ability to have rap battles or control game... Read more...
It's quite possible that Google's Chromebook launched ahead of its time. Is the world truly ready to embrace a cloud-centric operating system? Chromebook adoption has been sluggish for sure, but in the areas that Google is concentrating on, progress is still being made. Specifically, enterprise and education. In a recent report, Google has... Read more...

Your HotHardware Public Service Announcement (PSA) of the day is that there's a new version of Google's Chrome browser available to download, Chrome 24.

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...
Another month is in the books, and once again, Internet Explorer is the browser to beat, in terms of market share. IE closed out October with a majority share of 54.13 percent, well ahead of Firefox at 19.99 percent and Chrome at 18.55 percent, but a closer look at the numbers reveals some interesting trends. For one... Read more...
An upcoming version of Google's Chrome browser will finally offer support for Do Not Track (DNT) technology, which is a privacy measure that, in theory, prevents websites from dropping advertising cookies into the browser.
