After working together as a team, Facebook will launch an application that will be a direct competitor of Apple's AppStore.

A report from TechCrunch’s MG Siegler says that Facebook is co-working with several developers for a secret project called “Project Spartan”, a HTML5-based application that would circumvent Apple’s AppStore on iOS devices and aims to reach for a 100 million users.

The Facebook is about to launch a mobile application that directly aims for iPhones and iPad. But it will not be sold on Apple’s Appstore. It will be an entirely HTML5 based application that will work on Safari because its the one area of the device where Facebook will be able to control it.

If you're not convinced on switching from your current browser to Internet Explorer 9, then maybe the Microsoft browser's energy efficiency stats can change your mind. That's if you believe them.

Stretching its marketing muscle further, Microsoft continues on its mission to win your web browsing hearts by releasing a new table showing data on a category that never really crossed our minds: Energy efficiency. And in case you haven’t suspected the obvious, Internet Explorer 9 wins this round. But it’d be a surprise if it didn’t, considering that Microsoft is the one setting the parameters of the test.

Hit the break to see the table!

Safari and IE 8 Falls for Pwn2Own

Written on March 14, 2011 by Adam Eve

Pwn2Own strikes again! And this times, they got Safari and Internet Explorer 8.

Pwn2Own is an annual event that attempts to hack machines by exploiting vulnerabilities in a computer’s browser. And just before the competition starts this year, Apple and Google release the last minutes updates for their softwares.

However, a French security company – VUPEN – has gained control to Apple’s fully patched mac OS X 10.6.6 MacBook. Everything only took five seconds after the browser, Safari, visited its crafted website. Next was Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8. Stephen Fewer of Harmony Security was able to beat the 32-bit version on IE 8 on a Windows 7 Service Pack 1 using three separate vulnerabilities. Two of these were to successfully execute a code within the browser, while the third was to escape IE’s Protection Mode.

It was unfortunate that the hackers set to take on Google’s Chrome was a no-show.
