It was six years ago when Mozilla launched their browser to give users an alternative to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Named “Mozilla Firebird” back then, it revolutionized the browsing experience by having an overall faster browser performance compared to the former. Most importantly, it gave users more flexibility through add-ons and plug-ins for features not included. Currently, Firefox has a market share of around 31% with the rest shared by IE and other browsers like Google’s Chrome.
Firefox 4, the next major version, is said to be launched by early 2011. This might sound as a make-or-break for them as many users have been switching to Chrome due to its faster performance.

We’re so envious of Japan right now as they get the juiciest of the new gadgets/hardware. Here’s a sample, Samsung’s new 7-inch Super AMOLED display supposedly to be built onto their next generation Galaxy Tab. And what a better way to showcase it than to actually place it in a Galacy tab unit. The display supposedly has a WSVGA resolution of 1024 x 600, just like the one on their current tablet.
Chit Chat for Facebook is a convenient, desktop based alternative to the standard Facebook chat application. With a user friendly interface it offers an intuitive method of holding conversations with all of your Facebook friends and updates you whenever you receive a new message.
