Guru's Blog In the post yesterday we asked if the screenshot below was that of Firefox or Chrome. The answer is Firefox. Firefox 29 Beta 1 release with the new Australis theme/UI. This is the first major UI change since Firefox 4 was released on March 22, 2011 (after over a year of developmental releases). Firefox 4 also introduced Tabs on Top, the hidden menu bar and the Firefox button, which with Firefox 29 will be a thing of the past. Kind of a shame too as it at least made Firefox standout from other browsers which are really all starting to look the same now. Guru's Blog

There are many free web browsers on the market. One of the best is Mozilla Firefox. Often referred to as just Firefox, it includes features such as pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, and increased security. Firefox's design allows the user to extensively customize the browser to their individual tastes and needs through the use of extensions and themes. Additionally, Firefox stores many hidden preferences which can be manipulated to turn on or off many other features. Best Firefox Extensions
In Firefox 30 the Add-on SDK is making a change to the execution environment for content scripts. While this change will not affect most add-ons, some patterns will no longer work. Specifically, content scripts will no longer be able to use unsafeWindow or window.wrappedJSObject to make JavaScript objects available to content. The more common pattern of accessing objects in the page directly via unsafeWindow will continue to work as expected. What we’re introducing instead are some new APIs that you can use to share functions and objects with content explicitly. While you’re working on migrating to these new APIs, there’s a mechanism you can use to switch your add-on back to the old behavior as a short-term measure. Add-ons Blog Add-ons Blog
