As planned, Mozilla has just dropped Firefox 21 for Windows, OS X, Linux and Android. Full details, as well as where to download Firefox from, can be found right after the break.
Mozilla's Firefox OS looks, on the face of it, to be a clean, smooth, simple experience, and although no vendors have actually signed up as of yet to ship the touch-based operating system on their mobile devices, two developer handsets were available to purchase from Geeksphone, and were sold out within hours of availability. Starting at just $119, the devices that were on offer present an enticing prospect to anybody interested in the company's open-source mobile ecosystem, and although the Firefox OS is looking to do battle in an ever-crowded market, the legions of Firefox fanatics behind the project give it a very strong chance of forging a substantial user base.
“Java is everywhere” is the official statement pertaining to the platform, and that’s as true as the sky being blue. The technology exists from within simplest of things to desktop computers, smartphones, tablets and whatnot. The usefulness of Java cannot be denied even in the slightest, either, since it’s the driver for delivery of a lot of content. It seems rather odd, then, that you’d want to disable something as useful as this. There’s a good reason for that, however, that we’ll discuss just past the jump.
Firefox OS, Mozilla’s attempt to make a dent into the crowded smartphone market, has reached another milestone today with the release of Firefox OS Simulator 3.0, the new developer tool that allows developers and smartphone enthusiasts alike to give the smartphone operating system a try, straight from their computers.
Mozilla has just released Firefox 19 for users of the Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, and among a plethora of new features comes an in-built PDF viewer. Since increasing its release schedule, Mozilla has stuck almost religiously to its six-week cycles, and although it's rare - in software terms - to see a whole number update pertaining to only a few minor changes, it helps Mozilla keep up with Google's rampant Chrome browser.
Mozilla's biggest export is Firefox, and with Windows 8 having been in circulation for a few months now, the next stage of preparations for a version of the popular browser tailored to Microsoft's latest OS release have begun. Last week, the Metro/Modern-ized browser reached Mozilla's nightly build channel, and today, it has reached Mozilla-central. Although Firefox desktop product manager Asa Dotzler confessed there is still "plenty of work" to be done, it has now reached a point where it is stable enough for regular testing.
Mozilla has delivered the latest of its ongoing, sixth-weekly updates to Firefox, pushing the browser up to version 18.0. As you may expect, the company has packed in a whole bunch of new features, and while most concern the overall running and general performance of the app (read: under the hood housekeeping), there are one or two which many will notice from the get-go. Details, and info on where you can grab the new Firefox, are available after the break!
Firefox may not be your browser of choice, but considering it has been placed onto a fairly frequent update schedule and is benefitting from a number of impressive changes and feature additions, then it could be worth checking out for those who are growing tired of using the likes of Google Chrome, Safari or dare I say it… Internet Explorer. Being able to stay in touch socially with through the likes of Twitter and Facebook is always important to a lot of people, so it may come as a surprise to some to learn that Firefox 17 brought with it a hidden feature that extends into Facebook.
It may not be the most feature-packed update that has ever been released, but Mozilla has kept in line with their relatively recent tradition of pushing out prompt updates to their software by making the final build of Firefox 16 web browser available for download. Once upon a time, we found ourselves having to wait an extremely long time before any new browser update was pushed out, especially major revisions like this, but the new rapid revision approach is definitely beneficial to those who user the software.
Mozilla has released a preview copy of their Firefox Metro browser for Microsoft's new desktop operating system. The future of Firefox has been announced via the official Mozilla blog, with the release of the browser that is intended for users and the Mozilla community to put through its paces to see if it lives up to expectations. The preview release of Firefox has been built from the ground up to offer a classic browsing mode as well as having a Metro-based look and feel to it.
