Anybody who has read this website for some time knows I like to be optimistic when it comes to Mozilla, however I am not sure if I have much faith in the new Do Not Track system that has been partially put in place in the latest beta of Firefox 4. So what is all this buzz about Do Not Track about?
It appears Firefox will be taking great leaps in development by the end of 2011. The official Firefox roadmap was recently updated and shows that Firefox 7 is planned to ship in 2011. I find that a little odd, seeing how Firefox 4 is still being in development as we speak and recently updated to beta version 10.
The Mozilla Labs Game On competition is over. The web game development competition spawn a lot of creative and amazing games. I can say one thing for sure, I sure am glad I didn’t have to decide who was the best of the best. The best overall winner was Marble Run – but there were a lot of other awards handed out.
Over at Mozilla Labs, they announced that they are no longer going to maintain the Prism project. For those of you who remember, Prism was Mozilla’s answer to the chrome-less browser. Something you could use to launch web applications (like Gmail) as a desktop application. The idea was to blur the line between desktop programs and online programs.
Back in October I told you about the Mozilla Labs Game On competition. The guys at Mozilla now have selected 35 finalists in their game development competition and they are all online and ready for you to play. These games were the top qualified entries in the competition and are being evaluated for the prize awards.
Firefox 4 Beta 10 has been released by Mozilla. This update, on the heels of the Beta 9 release, really only brings more stability to an already amazing new browser interface. The official release notes as far as changes go have been pretty sparse, but it seems stability is the big update this time around.
Are you a graphic designer looking for a new muse? Mozilla has a new contest going on for designing the new Firefox 4 launch t-shirt. All they need now is your submissions for some of the best and unique Firefox 4 logo designs. The winning design will be printed as the official Firefox 4 launch t-shirt, a limited edition item featured in the Mozilla store and distributed to the world wide audience of Firefox fans.
Well, I have finally made the switch to Firefox 4 as my primary browser. (Firefox 4 – Beta 9 to be exact) I figured with the big Firefox 4 release date being next month, it was about time I got used to the new way of browsing with the latest incarnation of the Mozilla browser. So what are some of my initial thoughts?
