Firefox, What I Would Like To See

Firefox, What I Would Like To See

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Firefox is my default web browser, which can be mainly attributed to its amazing add-on support and customizability. But other browsers have emerged (Chrome) or improved to a point, that Firefox feels old fashioned in certain categories. Especially speed and performance wise. If you ever experienced how fast Chrome or Opera are opening the most complex websites, and then compared that to Firefox, you know that something is amiss...

Buon compleanno Google Chroome!

Buon compleanno Google Chroome!

Sono trascorsi due anni da quando il browser web voluto da Google ha fatto il suo esordio in un mercato dominato da Internet Explorer, nonostante, nel passato più o meno recente, sia arrivato un competitor del calibro di Firefox a rovinare i sogni egemonici a lungo periodo della software house di Redmoond. E' stato probabilmente il successo della volpe di fuoco, unitamente alla rivalità che separa il quartier generale di Mountain View da quello dell'ex-azienda di Bill Gates,...

Chrome Stable 6, Firefox 4 Features Axed

Chrome Stable 6, Firefox 4 Features Axed

Some things do not seem to be right. While Google does not seem to have problems increasing the stable releases of their Chrome browser in a four month turnus, other’s like the Mozilla gang have decided to cut features from the upcoming Firefox 4 release to meet the end of the year release deadline. 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...

YouTube HD Ultimate, The Best YouTube Userscript?

YouTube HD Ultimate, The Best YouTube Userscript?

I did not pay much attention to Youtube or any other Flash based video portal on the Internet ever since I have uninstalled the Flash Player on my PC. Still, I sometimes have to visit the site if something newsworthy is happening. A new YouTube userscript that has not been reviewed yet is probably not the most newsworthy item on the planet, but since it was recommended to me I decided to take a closer look. Lets take a moment to think about the features that a userscript should offer....

Chromium Gets GPU Acceleration, Chrome Next

Chromium Gets GPU Acceleration, Chrome Next

Hardware accelerated rendering seems to be a new web browser trend, as developers of all major browsers have confirmed that their browsers will support it in one form or the other. The latest announcement in this regard came from the Chromium team just two days ago. Google has for some time worked on implementing hardware acceleration in Chromium, and the announcement acts as a primer to summarize those efforts. The underlying infrastructure consists of a new gpu process which “accepts...

How To Configure System Wide Website Shortcuts In Windows

How To Configure System Wide Website Shortcuts In Windows

Many Windows users do not know that the operating system offers a flexible shortcut system to start programs but also open websites directly with the keyboard. Those who do often make use of those shortcuts to improve their workflow. One option that may come in handy is the configuration of website shortcuts, to launch websites by pressing a key – or keys – on the keyboard. Some may know that functionality if their keyboard supports special characters that can be configured...

Enable WebGL, Direct2D Rendering In Firefox 4 Beta

Enable WebGL, Direct2D Rendering In Firefox 4 Beta

The latest beta of Firefox 4, and actually several previous versions of Firefox as well, have features included that are disabled by default, mostly because they have not been tested enough to enable them for all Internet users by default. If you have read the Firefox 4 Beta 2 release notes you may have noticed that they explicitly mention two features that are included but disabled in the beta release, specifically: Full WebGL support is included but disabled by default at this time An...

Google Chrome, Problems Downloading Large Files

Google Chrome, Problems Downloading Large Files

For the last days, the developer version of the Google Chrome web browser has had troubles downloading large files from the Internet. Downloads of files with a minimum size of 50 Megabytes, stopped abruptly at about 30 Megabytes. Retrying the download yielded the same results. The first thought was that this was related to a single file or server, that acted up strangely. But the problems persisted and after trying to download a dozen different files, all with a file size of 50 to 200...

Firefox 4.0 Beta 1 Is Out, Download Now

Firefox 4.0 continues where Firefox 3.7 has left off. It sports a new interface design, something that many veteran Firefox users may have problems adopting with. Browser tabs are now located on top of...

Epiphany: An efficient, but different, web browser

Epiphany: An efficient, but different, web browser

After I set up RGBA support in Ubuntu (see my article “Enable RGBA support in Ubuntu“), I sat about to find applications that could replace non-GTK+ applications currently in use. Replacing the web browser proved to be a challenge. And although it’s not able to stand alone as a full blown replacement for my favorite, Chrome, the Epiphany web browser is a nice, serviceable replacement that supports RGBA. There are a few things Epiphany handles differently than most...

Opera 10.60 Beta Released, Fastest Browser Gets Even Faster

Opera 10.60 Beta Released, Fastest Browser Gets Even Faster

Someone must have flipped a switch over at the Opera headquarters in Norway. The developers of the popular Opera browser have accelerated development of the browser over the last months. The release of the highly acclaimed Opera 10.50 did not seem to have slowed down the developers who have now made available the first beta of the upcoming Opera 10.60. Opera 10.60 snapshot users can update the browser to the beta release by clicking on the menu button at the top, then Help and Check for...

HTML5 Test Your Web Browser

HTML5 Test Your Web Browser

Most Internet users who read about HTML5 and how it is going to change the web might think it is all about HTML5 video as the controversy surrounding it was all over the news lately. But HTML5 promises more than just a new video web standard, it introduces several new elements and attributes while getting rid of obsolete ones. There are not a lot of websites that make use of HTML5 yet. Some video portals like Youtube began to add HTML5 video as an alternative to the common Flash video...

Firefox Sync

Firefox Sync

What once was Mozilla Weave Sync is now Firefox Sync. The Mozilla developers have changed the name of the synchronization add-on for the Firefox web browser. No word is out why they changed the name but it is likely that Mozilla Weave Sync was just not descriptive enough whereas Firefox Sync exactly describes what the add-on is all about. A new version of Firefox Sync was released as well (Firefox Sync 1.3b5) which offers considerable advantages over earlier versions. This includes an...

Chromium 6 Has landed, Expect Google Chrome 6 Soon

Chromium 6 Has landed, Expect Google Chrome 6 Soon

The versioning of Chromium and thus Google Chrome has been criticized in the past for being raised with light speed. The first beta version of the Google Chrome web browser was released on September 2, 2008 and the web browser quickly made its way through versions 1 to 4. The official releases at this point are either a version 4 release (stable) or version 5 release (dev and beta). This could change pretty soon as the latest Chromium version has been raised to version 6. It usually does...

Browser web: Internet Explorer sempre più giù, Chrome sempre più su

Browser web: Internet Explorer sempre più giù, Chrome sempre più su

Poco più di tre mesi fa Internet Explorer veniva definito in caduta libera, preso di mira dal fuoco nemico dei vari concorrenti, intenzionati a rendere più che mai la vita difficile al browser web rimasto per molto tempo senza n reale competitor. A novanta giorni di distanza, se si dovesse trovare un motto che definisca l'attuale situazione in questo settore del mercato, si potrebbe dire che per IE al peggio pare non esserci fine. Prosegue infatti inesorabile il trend...

Chromium Gets Rid Of Windows 7 Taskbar Thumbnails

Chromium Gets Rid Of Windows 7 Taskbar Thumbnails

The feature to display taskbar thumbnails in the Windows 7 operating system was recently added to Chromium and later on to Google Chrome. The taskbar thumbnails were enabled by default with no option to disable them in the web browser. Some users found a way to disable the thumbnail previews by running the Google Chrome or Chromium browser in Vista compatibility mode but that was seen as a temporary and not permanent solution. This has caused some controversy and the latest Chromium nightlies...
