Firefox 4 UI update brings snazzy, new alert pop-ups (Download Squad)

Nov 21st 2010 4:34PM They're pretty sweet looking.
There does seem to be a bit of a delay when they open, but they're in a nightly version. I'd imagine that things will be tweaked.

Test your browser's HTML5 prowess with the HTML5 test (Download Squad)

Forgot, HTML5 but not a solid standard

Test your browser's HTML5 prowess with the HTML5 test (Download Squad)

Aug 9th 2010 1:34PM It's a bogus/unfair test. Simple or not, it's being advertised.
Plus you've cited Chrome Canary's numbers and (kind of) compared them to Firefox 3.6 (although it's great that you use it!)

(latest) Minefield 4.0b4pre 190+ 9 bonus points.
MPEG-4 support No ✘
H.264 support No
MP3 support No
AAC support No
Mozilla will never support those (as well as some others) and I'm not too sure exactly what they have to do with HTML5.

WebGL 3D context No
Mozilla is a member of the WebGL Working Group and will support it.

Regardless, I do enjoy your articles.

Dear Firefox, please fix the crappy Find UI already (Download Squad)

Jul 13th 2010 7:51PM I use the Find All extension.
I couldn't find the AMO listing, but I'm pretty sure it's hosted there.

"This add-on replaces the find bar's Highlight All button with a powerful Find All button, which highlights all search terms found and displays them in an easy to view list. The list displays a few words before and after the search term so you can quickly see the context of each match. It also shows a total of how many times the search term was found on the page. "

Offers some customization options too.

"It's kind of sluggish at times, but it is my browser of choice, mainly for political reasons"

That rocks.
I guess I'm what most would call a Firefox Fanboy. Despite that, I personally don't care for the new UI changes coming (not even a little), but Firefox will remain customizable and even if it didn't, and if I had to give up all of my add-ons, I'd still use it because I'm a supporter of Mozilla, not just a single piece of software.
