Chrome Stable 6, Firefox 4 Features Axed

Some things do not seem to be right.

But first things first. Download Squad’s Lee Mathews was the first to report that the stable version of Google Chrome made the jump to version 6. That’s a milestone for the...

What Is Mozilla Prism Again?

What Is Mozilla Prism Again?

Beta 3 of Mozilla Prism 1.0 has just been released and it is probably a good idea to answer a question that is probably in your mind right now: What is Mozilla Prism again and why would I need it? Mozilla Prism is offered as a Firefox extension and standalone application. It can basically turn a website into an application so that the website is untied from the web browser. There are a few advantages but also disadvantages of using Prism to run websites in their own application window...

Better Gmail 2’s Favicon Unread Count Fixed

Just released a fixer-upper version of the Better Gmail 2 Firefox extension which cleans up some wreckage a recent Gmail API change left behind. Specifically, the change broke Eric Bogs’ and Peter Wooley’s excellent favicon alert scripts, and man did THAT upset users.

Save Websites With Mozilla Archive Format

Save Websites With Mozilla Archive Format

Internet users who want to save single webpages in their web browser can usually do so by going to the File menu of their browser and selecting Save As. This will save the html file along with all the objects of the website in an extra folder on the local computer system. Many users who save websites regularly to their computer do not like the default option to save websites as it quickly leads to a huge number of files and directories on the computer system which makes keeping an overview...

Better Flickr 0.4.1 Now Available

It took over a month (!), but Mozilla Add-ons has finally approved a long-delayed update to the Better Flickr Firefox extension.

Firefox Blocking Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo Extensions

Firefox Blocking Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo Extensions

Got a surprising alert yesterday telling me two of the extensions I had installed on my PC’s copy of Firefox have been blocked because they cause stability or security problems. (Click to enlarge the dialog on the right.) Specifically, the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant and Windows Presentation Foundation extensions were the problem children that got kicked off the island. (In my defense, I didn’t install these extensions myself–Windows Update did). My first reaction...

Mozilla Plugin Check

Mozilla Plugin Check

The Mozilla Firefox development team started to check the Flash plugin version of Firefox web browsers on the What’s New page after Firefox updates recently. This page would inform users if the Flash plugin version of their web browser was not the latest one which usually meant that their web browser was open for attacks that would target vulnerabilities in outdated Flash versions. The website would describe the problem to the user and offer a solution in the form of a download link...

Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

Finally gave into my netbook lust and got an Eee PC. (It’s for my better half, of course. Ahem.) But since it’s not the most minimalist browser on the market, I had to modify Firefox to trim down extra UI bits and make it more netbook-friendly. Over at Lifehacker this morning, I published my full list of userChrome.css tweaks that maximize Firefox 3.5’s viewing area on netbooks.
