Mozilla not so long ago rolled out Firefox 4, which was received very well by the web surfers as the download count for the browser hit the 5 million mark in no time and currently stands at 15 million. There is a reason behind this amazing response and it is due to new and sensational features that Firefox 4 brings. We have handpicked the features that we believe are the game changers and we discuss them in the next few paragraphs.
Mozilla has rolled out Beta 2 of Firefox for Android also known as Firefox Mobile 4. The 2nd beta is the kind of update which you simply can’t afford to miss out on since it includes bug fixes, enhancements as well as new features. Feature list can be accessed after the jump.
The title of the post doesn’t paint a good picture if you are a Microsoftie doesn’t it? But truth must be told even if it happens to be a bitter truth of Microsoft’s legenedary browser losing its grip on the competitive browser market. According to the stats generated by StatCounter’s research arm, Global Stats, Internet Explorer failed to take its browser market share above or equal to 50% and instead continued its down town journey from 49.87 (September) to 49.23.
Well this was expected wasn’t it given Mozilla’s recent track record and their inability to fulfill their own release schedules. The makers of the open source browser have done it again – they have delayed the release of Firefox 4 till 2011.
A new month means some new and interesting stats to consume from StatCounter. The numbers for the month of September don’t paint a good picture if you are Microsoft or an IE fan for that matter. According to the stats shared by StatCounter, Internet Explorer’s market share has fallen below the 50 percent mark which is the first time in the otherwise dominant history of Internet Explorer.
Mozilla has detailed what has in store for the next update for the extremely popular Firefox Home for iPhone. To give you just a taste of what’s to come, Firefox Home for iPhone next update will be focusing on two areas : Enable access to more Firefox data and to make it socially active with the integration of Facebook.
I don’t know if you will agree with me on this but I have noticed that the rate at which Mozilla rolls out beta versions of the browser have improved quite considerably. Firefox 4.0 Beta 5 is another proof of this. The latest beta of Firefox 4.0 brings a couple of new features which we discuss after the jump.
Mozilla has rolled out yet another Beta version of Firefox 4.0. Firefox 4.0 Beta 3 is the official name of this latest update and brings the all important multi-touch support for Windows 7 users. As always, bug fixes are part and parcel of this release along with other improvements. Beta 3 is available for all the three platforms namely Mac, Linux and Windows.
A wave of happiness has ran among the Mozilla folks as they have gotten exactly what they wanted – an Apple approval for the Firefox Home. The browser sync app is sitting pretty at the App Store and is available as a free download for the iPhone and iPod Touch users.
Office 2010, Windows 7 are the only softwares that I can think of that provide support for 64 bits processors. Well its time to add another to my knowledge. Its a browser and it’s not just any browser, its Mozilla’s very own, Firefox. Mozilla has unleashed a pre-alpha build of Firefox 4.0 which is the first time they are bringing support for the 64 bit machines running on Windows 7.
