Save your tabs and Panorama tab groups in Firefox 4

When Firefox 4's tab grouping tool, Panorama, had its keyboard shortcut changed to the finger-breaking combo of Ctrl+Shift+E, we thought Panorama would get dropped before FF4's final release -- but, thankfully, it made the cut! If you've used Firefox 4 and Panorama, you might have noticed that Mozilla's new browser doesn't always save your tab groupings when you close the browser -- a bit of...

iPhone 4 gets gyro-powered panorama viewing in Safari, thanks to 360 Panorama

The latest mobile version of Safari supports some gyroscope-powered HTML hackery that allows users to view panoramic photos on the web. If you've got an iOS device with a gyroscope and iOS 4.2 -- i.e. an iPhone 4 or current-gen iPod Touch -- you can test it for yourself, thanks to Occipital, maker of the 360 Panorama app. Occipital is the first company to take advantage of this...

Your guide to Firefox 4 and its shiny new features

Firefox 4, with the release of Beta 7, is as good as finished. From now until its release in early 2011, no new features will be added, no significant changes will be made -- Beta 7 is, for all intents and purposes, Firefox 4. Unlike Firefox 3.5 (private browsing) and 3.6 (personas!!), version 4 has a significant number of new in-your-face features -- features that will take a little getting...

The Future of the Web: How Firefox Panorama and Aza Raskin will shape the Web

When I visited the Mozilla offices in Mountain View, California, I met with three very important Mozillans. Aza Raskin, Creative Lead of Firefox; Vladimir Vukićević, Principal Engineer of Firefox; and Nick Nguyen, Mozilla's Director of Add-ons. Together, they form the spearhead that drives both the creative vision and development of Firefox, a browser that's now used by over 400 million users. ...

Firefox Friday - Panorama tab search, auto-updating and add-on sync (sort of)

Greetings, fearless Firefox fans! I'm your fill-in host for Firefox Friday this week, because Sebastian is in San Francisco meeting with Mozilla! He should have some juicy Firefox tidbits for you when he gets back, but for right now, let's round up the awesome Firefox news that popped up over the past week. IE9 got all the hype, but Mozilla's testing some new stuff for Firefox that's simply...

Firefox Panorama about to get even cooler with tab search

I know, I know – today's the day when we're all agog over the new IE9. Well, I decided to buck the trend and show off a brand-new preview video from Mozilla's UI design guru, Aza Raskin. While you can just view the video after the fold, or directly on Aza's blog, I'll give you the highlights in a nutshell: Aza is showing off how simply typing in Panorama ("Tab Candy") mode highlights all...

Firefox Friday, a weekly round-up: Beta 4, Beta 5, Panorama, breaking add-ons and our Private Browsing habits analyzed

This week has produced some fantastic Firefox news. That's a good thing, but because we covered it all on Download Squad in a timely fashion, it leaves me with a bit of a problem: there's no new news to share with you. I've been left with producing a round-up for this week's Firefox column. I've never done a round-up before, but I'm sure it'll be good. I think I'm meant to take each nibble of...

viewAt: Flash based panoramic photo viewer for your browser

Odds are your computer monitor or laptop display isn't really big enough for viewing panoramic photos. That's why Apple released a QuickTime VR application for manipulating huge images in a small window. But if you don't want to install an application just to look at pretty pictures, viewAt lets you view and share panoramic photos using the same plugin your browser uses to access YouTube videos....

DIY VR pics with Picturecloud

These are 360º movies, made from a series of pictures you take, for free via the Picturecloud website. They are like the product QuickTime VR movies, not the ones where you stand on one place and spin around. By taking a couple or three dozen pics moving the subject or moving around the large subject (such as a house), uploading those files in series, and letting Picturecloud do it's magic,...

Creating 360-degree panoramic videos

Developer Bill Meikle wanted to go beyond static QTVR panoramas, so he figured out how to make 360-degree panoramic videos with some cheap hardware and Mac software. He details the entire process at his web sites and includes lots of sample videos, and the results are pretty stunning....

Autostitch - Today's Free File

If you've ever wanted to put together a series of shots into a panorama, you might want to try the free Autostitch program. It's the result of research from the Artificial Intelligence lab at the University of British Columbia. Yes, there are a number of photo stitching programs to create panoramas out there, but Autostitch is unique in that you simply feed in the photos to use, and it does...
