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.

We are not aware of any other software category that is developing at a similar speed while having a tremendous impact on billions of users – and change the way how we perceive and access information on the Internet. Mozilla is under massive pressure and is squeezed between an aggressive Google, which pushes Chrome into the market with accelerating success and Microsoft, which needs to stop the bleeding of IE market share.

Here's where Vala Panel AppMenu comes in.

Reviews: OpenELEC and Clear Linux

I next turned my attention to a distribution which has only recently been added to the DistroWatch database: Clear Linux. The Clear Linux distribution is unusual in a few ways. For one, the project is not designed to be a full featured or general purpose operating system; Clear Linux focuses on performance more than features.
