The "Unity Dash" in Ubuntu has always been designed around the goal of delivering relevant information to the user, but come version 13.10, due out in October, things are about to become vastly improved. With that release will come 50 brand-new "Scopes", along with a "SmartScope" filtering service. With these, users... Read more...
Many long-time Mac users likely both fondly remember the Camino web browser and also have forgotten all about it in recent years, as the Safari browser has primarily taken over on Apple’s Mac OS X systems. It’s perhaps fitting, then, that the team behind Camino has looked around at the current browser market and is now gracefully... Read more...
As we reported back in February, Mozilla had plans to introduce cookie-blocking by default in version 22 of its Firefox Web browser. Well, it seems that the company has realized that it might have been a bit hasty in wanting to implement the change so quickly, so now, it's decided to hold off as it needs more time to analyze the outcome of...

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...
Remember when browser updates came once a year, like your favorite holiday? Man, those were the days. Now, we can barely get through two weeks without another browser update from Google, Apple, Opera or Mozilla, but we suppose constant updates are better than infrequent ones. This week, Firefox 20 was made official... 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...
As we covered just yesterday, a leaked build of Microsoft's upcoming Windows Blue (aka: Windows "8.1") is floating around the net "somewhere", and as it appears, there's quite a bit that has changed. No, we didn't get rid of the Start screen, but many further enhancements have been added, along with other niceties... 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...
Privacy advocates owe a debt of gratitude to Jonathan Mayer, a grad student at Standford who developed a patch for Firefox that, by default, blocks third-party cookies from installing on their browser, thereby protecting users from being tracked by advertisers. Mozilla plans to bake the patch into Firefox 22, which... Read more...
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...
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. Once the .xpi is installed... 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...
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. It isn't quite finished yet, though it is now available in the Android Aurora channel, meaning it's essentially in alpha... Read more...
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...
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. It's a feature that's already available in Firefox and Internet Explorer, and by the end of the... Read more...
Internet Explorer has its television ads, and Firefox has it's fiery fox logo. But Opera has a growing user base of its own, and the latest edition of the browser-that-could is now available. Opera 12 Beta has launched this week, presenting an entirely new look and feel, including new themes that provide some of the most stunning skins yet.... Read more...
