The quick red Mozilla Firefox jumped over the fence to Android's backyard.

In case you’re not fully satisfied with your Android browsers on your mobile devices, well Mozilla Firefox may (or may not) quench your thirst for some web browser goodness, as its final version launches to the Android Market today. Unfortunately, the browser won’t be coming with the Adobe Flash software. Strike one for Mozilla already, but let’s give the browser a chance, eh?

“For us, HTML5 and the open Web video standards are most important right now,” said Thomas Arend, Mozilla’s principal Product Manager. “Flash is a reality, though — I’m aware that it’s there and it’s going to be around for a while — so we’re definitely looking into it and will look into enabling Flash plugins in a future version.”

A Mission Only for Google Chrome: Kill the URL Bar

Written on February 21, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

There's no job too small or too large for the Google Chrome as it plans to eliminate another element in the grand scheme we call a web browser: the URL bar.

Google Chrome seems to be on its way to destroy the URL Bar. Yes, that bar where you type in the web address of the site you want to go to. Is it possible? To Google, ANYTHING is. But there’s still the question as to why they want to do it.

“Less is more,” that seems to be the trend these days in everything we do and also in web browsers as it allows the world to glide through the web with speed and ease. The Google Chrome surprisingly trails behind the Internet Explorer 9 in terms of application and viewable web. But Google is right on the case as they’re currently studying ways of making web surfing a much simpler experience, and they’ve got their eyes in killing the URL bar in their “compact navigation” model.

‘Panorama': Featured in Firefox 4 Beta

Written on August 25, 2010 by Charles Bass

Mozilla has sculpted their Firefox 4 Beta with this feature that must be very familiar to Mac users.

Recently, we told you about Firefox’s feature called Tab Candy. There must be interests in this theory because people kept commenting and asking for more. Mozilla saw it coming and confirmed that this feature will be a part of the Firefox 4 release but not as Tab Candy.

Panorama is the name Mozilla has decided to call their new feature. In a recent blog from the company’s Asa Raskin, he showed off the revamps they’ve given Panorama in the previous months. One of this was the inclusion to the beta of Firefox 4. The feature turns out to be more smooth than the experiments. The idea is it is an easy way to declutter your page and organize a cluster of tabs in different windows. You can zoom out by clicking the Panorama button and see a view of all you windows. It is like the Expose feature that we familiar with in Mac computers. It took seven months for the feature to develop. He noted a few principles and lay outs on why Panorama will work:

Remove distractions: out of sight, out of mind. This is the corollary to seeing is remembering. We, as humans, are bad at multitasking. As practitioners of GTD know, the secret to productivity is removing distractions and focusing. Piles let you visually hide the pages by which you don’t want to be visually distracted, which strategically requires recall-based memory. When you are in a group, you only see the tabs related to the task at hand, again allowing you to focus. Strategic hiding is key to a mind free of info-guilt.
