Paid Version Of Mozilla’s Firefox Could Arrive This Fall

Firefox Gets Some Serious Speed Improvements

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.

Mozilla Optimizes Its Firefox Browser For The iPad

While our tablets might be viewed simply as larger phones, the fact of the matter is that they’re more than that.
