Mozilla’s open and free alternative to Chrome’s web store is up and running. It might not be much to look at just yet, but it does show a lot of promise when it comes to how Mozilla will handle it’s own open web apps store. Developers who are interested in developing apps for the browser can do so very easily. The OWA Application Manifest is now stable, so there is no more worry about changing code or policy there.

After a day of Minecrafting and playing outside with my nephews and niece, I was surprised last night to find yet another Firefox 4 beta had been released.

It has been a long time since I wore a pair of Nike shoes – but I am thinking about picking up a new pair. So, what do you think about the design above? Brass Monki, the custom sneaker designer, recently released pictures of shoes he customized with the Firefox, Google and Twitter logos and designs in mind.
Most of the shoes on the website run around $350 and up, however I could not find the above shoes for sale anywhere on the Brass Monki website. I would say though, this would be a true devotion for any Firefox fan to make. Upgrade your feet, and keep an eye on the Brass Monki website for more information on when these new sneakers will be available.

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.

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?
Want to create your own Firefox search plugin? The steps on how to do this used to be a lot easier back in the early days of Firefox, but now with the OpenSearch protocol in all modern browsers – the steps are a little more difficult. Have no fear though, because I have found a resource that will make creating your own Firefox search plugin easy again and it takes only a few simple steps.
To end the week, check out this fantastic little comic from the creative mind of The Dawn Chapel.
