One of the main components that makes for a good browsing experience is speed. If a website takes too long to load, most people would just give up and seek an alternative website instead. While web hosts do play a role in determining how fast pages load, browser are also crucial in this aspect where it will also help determine loading times.
Just the other day, Mozilla issued a patch for a recently-discovered zero-day vulnerability discovered in its Firefox browser. Unfortunately, it turns out that was not the only security flaw that the browser had because according to a report from ZDNet, it seems that Mozilla has since released yet another security patch for another zero-day flaw.
If you’re a Firefox user, you might want to update your browser ASAP. This is because Mozilla has recently issued an emergency patch for the browser that will fix a zero-day vulnerability. Now, such flaws do happen from time to time, but what makes this particularly important and urgent is that this flaw is currently being exploited, which means that there is a chance you could be a victim if […]
Ever since the beginning of the internet, for the most part, browsers used to surf the web have been mostly free. This is because some companies such as Apple and Microsoft already bundle browsers with their computers, so it doesn’t really make sense for third-party browsers to charge money for their use.
Mozilla has rolled out a new release of its Firefox web browser today and the company says that this release is faster than any before it. Firefox’s speed did improve when Mozilla rolled out its Quantum browser last year but now it’s going to get even faster. That’s not something that ardent Firefox users are going to complain about, to be honest.
At the moment, pretty much most mainstream browsers out there already offer users a private browsing mode, where their identities will be better protected and where the history from your private sessions won’t be carried over to your regular browsing sessions. However, are these private modes private enough?
Many Firefox users may have noticed an issue with their browser by now. They’re unable to install new extensions while the ones that they already have installed are broken. Mozilla is aware of the issue and has even explained what has caused it. Furthermore, the company is working on a fix so that users can once again use the extensions.
Mozilla continues to build more tracking protection for its Firefox internet browser. The company has revealed that it’s testing a new anti-tracking feature which will no longer allow websites to “fingerprint” users’ browsers and thus be able to track them even after they’re cleared their cookies. It’s also testing blocking cryptocurrency miners on websites.
A lot of websites ask for permission to send you notifications and most of you may ignore them. You never seem to run out of websites that show similar notifications and it can be a nuisance. This is something that Mozilla has noticed as well. It’s now experimenting with blocking website notification requests by default in a Firefox Nightly browser build. The notification requests will be blocked automatically until the […]
Last year Google launched their Titan hardware security key. For those unfamiliar, this is a USB dongle that when connected to a device, like a computer, would act as a “key” that authenticates users on websites and services. Previously Titan had worked with Google’s Chrome browser, but now it seems that support for more browsers is being rolled out as we speak.
While our tablets might be viewed simply as larger phones, the fact of the matter is that they’re more than that. This is because while they might share a similar operating system, how we use our phones versus our tablets are very different, and as such apps designed for tablets are simply more than just scaled up versions of phone apps.
If you were to say that videos that autoplay with sound online are a major inconvenience, you’d likely find a lot of people who agree with you, myself included. Mozilla is looking to do away with these online inconveniences. The company today announced that the latest Firefox 66 release available today blocks autoplaying content by default.
Mozilla launched Firefox Send in beta quite a while back. It’s a file-sharing service that allows users to share files with end-to-end encryption. The link to the file automatically expires so that users have peace of mind that their stuff doesn’t stay online for free. Mozilla has now confirmed that Firefox Send is no longer an experiment as it has exited the beta.
We know how annoying it can be when you load multiple websites at once, and a couple of them suddenly start blaring audio and video automatically. With browsers like Google Chrome, users have the option of muting the tab, and that’s a feature that Mozilla is looking to build into Firefox as well, except with a slight upgrade.
