Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 is now available for download! This was suppose to be available a couple of days earlier, but due to some issues it wasn’t released. But now Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 is available for download.
This beta version of Firefox 3.6 is built on the Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering engine. It contains many improvements for web developers, add-on developers and for the users.
Yesterday, a Firefox update was released and uploaded on the Mozilla FTP and as well on the website.
Mozilla Firefox 3.5.4 is now available for download. Many of you must have aleady got notifications of the update from automatic update.
Firefox 3 is very fast itself, but there’s always room for improvement and you can tweak and optimize it for best performance and speed.
Firefox settings are usually tweaked by manually changing the values in about:config (type this in the address bar). But since it’s not that easy for everyone, I have found a nice freeware which lets you optimize Firefox according to your computer speed and internet connection speed.
Mozilla has finally released the long-awaited, first development release of Firefox 3.1 Beta 1. Firefox 3 was released 4 months ago, back in June and now eher we have the first beta of Firefox 3.1.
They haven’t added many new feaures in this release, but we sure hope they will add them by the final version comes out. Some noticiable feaures are the Ctrl + Tab (tab swicthing) feaure and TraceMonkey.
The recent trend of incorporating porn aka privacy mode in browsers is getting more and more popular with every browser trying to add this feature in it.
As far as I remember, Apple was the first one to add this feature as Stealth mode in Safari. Then came Internet Explorer 8 with the same feature as InPrivate and now the most recently released browser Google Chrome also has this as Incognito.
Earlier today I wrote about a Firefox 3 styled theme for Google Chrome, for users who like Firefox 3 and also use Chrome.
I was quite bored with the default Firefox 3 theme now and was looking for a new one to give it a refreshing look when I came across Chromifox.
Many people have already moved on to Google Chrome from Firefox 3 for it’s amazing features and simplicity. But some like me are are using both to get the best out of them.
Just two days ago I wrote about the first five themes that are available for download for Google Chrome and a new set of themes have been released now. In the latest themes, a developer has made a Firefox 3-styled theme for Chrome.
Mozilla Labs recently announced the best Firefox extension winners in a contest held every year called Extend Firefox 3. In this contest, developers create extensions to extend the functionality of current features of Firefox.
This year’s Extend Firefox was launched back in March, and brought in over 100 entries. But only seven were chosen as the winners within three categories: Best New Add-on; Best Updated Add-on; Best Music Add-on.
Gmail is one of the most popular email services available. I use a popular desktop client, Thunderbird, to receive my Gmail mails and it is my default email client to send emails.
But for people who do not have a mail client configured for their browsers, Firefox 3 has a built-in feature by which they can configure Gmail as the default email client. This trick will enable you to automatically open Gmail when clicked on a mailto link.
