Hello all, I have a short and simple personal message to toss in with our regular scheduled postings. I know for a few months back there, the number of posts here really fell a little flat while I dealt with a number of personal issues and triumphs.

Hello, sorry it has been a while since you last saw an update to this website – but that will all soon change. However, I do have a little ‘bit of news that I think you should all know. I am in the process of dropping FeedBurner as my RSS feed syndication method of choice, so if you are subscribed to:
Many people have been betting on the fact that Google Chrome might overtake Firefox as the dominate alternative browser to Internet Explorer. To those of you who like to follow this web browser soap opera – I’ve got another twist and/or turn that you will love. According to Net Applications, the overthrowing of Firefox might not happen at all.
Still using Windows 2000 or Windows XP Pre-SP2? If so, you had better upgrade your operating system. Mozilla’s Asa Dotzler announced that the Firefox team is moving towards using a newer version of the Visual Studio toolchain. Once this is done, Mozilla will no longer be able to build for Windows 2000, or Windows XP SP1.

Is it me or is there a lot of fear, uncertainty and doubt going on surrounding the Firefox web browser? I think it all started from the news reports from last week saying that Google Chrome had barely surpassed Firefox market share. The real issue at hand here is that Firefox isn’t dying – it is the fact that everybody else has finally started to wise up and put out a better browser.
With earthquakes in Oklahoma and the string of tornado watches that were going on yesterday in November, it seems like everything has been a little wacky these days. To give you one more thing to file under the crazy category, Firefox is now distributing a version of Firefox that uses Bing as the default search engine, rather than Google. It was only a few short years ago that Firefox and Microsoft (the parent company of Bing) were at each other’s throats – now they are teaming up against Google? I guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Mozilla is looking to expand innovation through its own incubator program for the open web. Web FWD is a new program that is designed from the ground up to help build up projects that focus around open web technologies. Teams will be invited to work within Mozilla offices for four weeks where they will be teamed u with some of the greatest minds inside of Mozilla and have access to all the Mozilla resources too. If you are an open source web developer, this should be a dream come true.
Now that Firefox 4 is out in the wild, Mozilla is changing up the way we all test and update Firefox. Users will now have three different variations of Firefox to download at any given time. Now, most people will want to download the final release version – as that is the most stable of the bunch. However, for those of you who like to test Firefox out as the development cycle rolls on – you have some exciting new things to look forward to.
Well, the long wait is finally over – now everybody can download Firefox 4 and see what all the buzz is about. Over the past few months I have already told you about several of my favorite features and annoyances. I would really love to hear what you think of the new browser so far.
