New Firefox Nightly and Aurora logos unearthed, and how to enable channel switching

Later today, Firefox will undergo its biggest developmental upheaval ever. Mozilla-central, the source of nightly builds, will be renumbered to version 5 -- and at long last, after years of wallowing around version 1, Mozilla's rendering and layout engine, Gecko, will also have its version number updated to match Firefox. Shortly thereafter, Firefox's new channel system will be implemented. ...

First Firefox 6 build next week, Firefox 7 by May, and aurora channel introduced

Mozilla's Engineering Project Manager, Christian Legnitto, has detailed the release schedule for Firefox 5, 6 and 7. If all goes to plan, Firefox 6.0a1 will be released next week, April 12, and Firefox 7.0a1 in the middle of May.

Google Chrome dev version update brings app sync, more

Google Chrome's dev channel has been bumped from 7.0.503.0 to 7.0.517.0. The update wasn't silky-smooth for me this time -- more on that later in this post. So what's new in Chrome dev? For starters, there's been a lot of code cleanup, and there have also been some minor UI tweaks as well -- a few pixels rounded here and there on Mac, but nothing too noticeable. Google Chrome's remoting code h...

Google Chrome dev update turns on PDF plug-in, Web Store makes an appearance

Not long ago, Google's internal Flash plug-in went primetime, making the jump to the stable channel. Its PDF counterpart, however, has taken a bit longer to materialize -- and it finally arrived in the dev channel build last month, though it was disabled by default. Yesterday's dev channel update has flipped the switch, however, and the internal PDF viewer is now enabled by default. Interest...

Chrome dev channel update brings sync enhancements, unified menu, more

Updates to the Google Chrome dev channel build tend to come fast and furious, and they don't always include noticeable changes. This time, however, there are a few noteworthy UI tweaks to go along with the usual assortment of bug fixes and security updates. For starters, the unified menu we told you about early last month has now been turned on by default. The goal, of course, is to simplify C...

Google sneaks internal PDF reader into Chrome dev channel release

Overshadowed by the introduction of extension sync in today's Google Chrome developer channel update was another important feature which has been in the works for some time. The same Google and Adobe collaboration which led to the introduction of Chrome's internal Flash plug-in has finally resulted in an internal plug-in for displaying PDF files as well. Neither internal Flash or internal PDF ...

Extension sync comes to Google Chrome

We told you it was coming, and now it's here: Extension sync has landed in the Google Chrome dev channel build. It's not enabled by default, so you won't see it in your sync options menu unless you activate the feature via a command line switch. --enable-sync-extensions --sync-url=https://clients4.google.com/chrome-sync/dev turns it on (again, see our tutorial on using command line switches i...

Get Google Chrome's in-tab bookmark manager on your New Tab page

Sebastian and I were chatting about Google Chrome earlier today when I mentioned something that I wanted to be able to do: pull up the new tabbed bookmarks manager when I open a new tab. Now...I haven't coded a lick in more than a decade, but it looked like this would be easy enough to hack in via an extension. Seb agreed that it looked like a pretty trivial task, and he decided to give it a g...
