Must-have Firefox 4 add-ons for Chrome and Internet Explorer converts

So you've finally realized that while Chrome might be fast, it sacrifices creature comforts to be so. It's a little bit like living in a whitewashed room with nothing more than a beige-box PC and keyboard -- it works, but it's not a particularly fun experience. If you like car analogies, Chrome is like a race-tuned Ferrari with hard-plastic bucket seats and tubular titanium roll cage. Likewise,...

Firefox 4 officially launched, 1,000,000 downloads and climbing fast

Mozilla has just flipped the switch on the new, rather beautiful Firefox 4 download page. No, we have no idea who those three cute (and utterly crazy) characters are.

There's also Twitter Party, which builds a Firefox logo mosaic from Firefox-related tweets. Along...

BitDefender Traffic Light protects your Web browser from malware and phishing

We've seen several browser toolbar security tools before here at Download Squad. Nearly every big-name antivirus company offers one nowadays, but BitDefender Traffic Light has one key advantage: it's available on all five major browsers! Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari. It's also not nearly as in-your-face as some browser malware defense tools. Traffic Light...

Android browser beats iPhone in exhaustive head-to-head

Browser bragging rights are kind of a big deal right now, and Android has just received a nice feather in its cap from Ottawa-based Blaze.

The results: Android's browser posted faster load times on 84% of the 45,000 pageviews. On...

Enable WebM video in Internet Explorer 9 with a Google plug-in

Not too long ago, Microsoft released an extension for Google Chrome which enabled H.264 HTML5 video playback. Now Google has returned the favor by offering a WebM plug-in for Internet Explorer 9 users. In a move which we can only describe as oozing with self-confidence, Google points out that there are some known issues -- visit this page, and revel in its blankness. If you plan on using IE9...

Firefox 4 also crashing due to outdated graphics drivers

After reading a new post from Mozilla, it appears as though Google isn't the only browser maker having a hard time with outdated graphics drivers. As Mozilla inches closer and closer to the final release of Firefox 4 -- which, of course, packs hardware accelerated rendering kung fu -- the company's Benoit Jacob has posted a plea to its users. Please update your graphics drivers. Like Google,...
