Firefox version 30 is out

We go from version 29 to 30 and the biggest change is a quick button that shows a pull down menu for your favorites/bookmarks. Placed next to the “bookmark” star button.

 

The color scheme and default look of the tabs still remind me of Chrome.


Mozilla Firefox 24 reminder

Version 24 of Mozilla’s Firefox Web Browser was released last month. Performance and security fixes. Also adds “Close all tabs to the right” feature.


Google Chrome 28 is out

Changing the rendering engine to something called Blink. Changing over from WebKit. There are also changes dealing with notifications on the Windows desktop OS. Security updates as usual.


So I uninstalled Google Chrome…

After experiencing so many  crashes with the past two versions (26 and 27) of Google Chrome, I decided to uninstall it completely from my main computer. The  isolated crashes feature stopped working and with each new update of Adobe Flash, the crashes became even more frequent. I watch a lot of streaming video via Flash Player. Only used two add ons from the Chrome App store.

I’m actually typing this up from Opera Browser.
