A few days ago I introduced you to a version of Firefox that was optimized for Windows users. Today, I have something a little different. Swiftfox is another optimized build of the Firefox browser, but this time it is for Linux users to enjoy.
The Pale Moon Project says they can get Firefox to perform 25% faster, through the art of optimization. You see, the Pale Moon Project is all about creating a custom-built and optimized Firefox browser for Windows users to enjoy.
Mozilla Labs has started it’s first international gaming competition, Game On 2010. All developers of all experience levels are invited to take part in the fun, to create games for the Web. Game developers have until January 11, 2011 to get their entries in.
Xmarks may live? For those of you who were sad to see Xmarks close up shop, there might be one last thing you can do to try to save it. Xmarks has launched a pledge campaign to stay alive. So, what must you do? If you want to show your support, all they are asking is for you to pledge $10 to $20. This is not an actual donation, but instead is a vote of confidence saying that, "Yeah, I’d pay for Xmarks".
If 100,000 people express interest in seeing Xmarks stay alive, then Xmarks might get a second chance. It is a pretty large goal to meet – however I do have to wish Xmarks the best of luck in chasing this new business model, and I do hope they are successful.
Well, it is a sad day in Firefox Extension Land because Xmarks has announced it will be biting the dust soon. The cross browser bookmark syncing tool will shut down service January 10, 2011. I am sad to see Xmarks become another failed experiment for the Web, but hopefully the great minds and people behind the product will move on to bigger and better things.
I have made no secret about the fact that the one feature I am looking most forward to in Firefox 4 is the new Firefox Panorama tool (formerly known as Tab Candy). Now, I have shown you why Panorama is really handy when it comes to getting rid of the extra browser windows, but now they are also introducing a very nice search feature too.
Along with all of your productive and useful websites out there, gaming websites or online games often get tossed to the wayside. You know what though? Supporting games and independent developers is just as important as supporting the guys making the awesome website applications we all know and love. With that said, I am happy to see Mozilla has launched the new Mozilla Labs Gaming.
Firefox Facts has finally finished moving from our old sponsored hosting account from another hosting provider, to a brand new (and powerful) VPS hosting account. What is a VPS hosting account, and what does this mean for you, you and you over there? Check out the details on my fantastic other website, Mitchelaneous.com.
With Firefox 4 being right around the corner, are all of your favorite add-ons and themes going to make the cut? In my own opinion, I think that the drastic changes in both the backend of Firefox and the visual frontend will lead to a lot broken add-ons and favorite themes. Hopefully though, this will not be the case once Firefox 4 is ready for the general public at large.
