A Glimpse At The Next Generation Of Firefox

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla is changing the interface of Firefox and is discussing its ideas with its users. Here is another round of mockups how Firefox X could look like.

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow."
