  2. Vivaldi 2.4 Released with Multiple User Profiles, New Customization Options Vivaldi 2.4 is now available for download on Linux, Windows, and macOS with an impressive lineup of new features, including support for multiple user profiles. First and foremost, the number one highlight in this release is a new customization option for toolbars. Beginning with version 2.4, Vivaldi users can simply drag buttons between select toolbars to further tweak the interface of the browser, thus making sure it matches their expectations. You can even reposition the reload and the back buttons, so you can basically configure Vivaldi to look just the way you want. Henrik Helmers, designer at Vivaldi, says this is just the beginning in terms of new customization options, as the development team is working on even more such features for the upcoming releases. “We have redrawn our toolbar icons to be more consistent and friendly. These changes lay the groundwork for more features and customization in the future,” he says. In order to move a button from one toolbar to another, just press Shift and then drag it to its new location. Multiple profiles and bookmark improvements Additionally, this update introduces multiple user profile support, which basically means that you can separate settings, extensions, and even cookies and history in different profiles. For example, you can create separate profiles for home and work stuff, which comes in handy especially if you use the same device all the time. Switching between profiles is possible via the new Profiles button on the right of the address bar. Vivaldi 2.4 also introduces a built-in Calculator that lets you perform quick calculations using Quick Commands. Just press F2 on the keyboard to open Quick Commands and then enter the equation. When you press enter, not only that you are provided with the result, but it’s also copied to the clipboard. This release comes with a bunch of new bookmarking options, so you can add certain tabs (which you can select with Shift or Ctrl) to favorites instantly. To do this, just right-click the selected tabs, launch Quick Commands, or use a keyboard shortcut. Smaller improvements in this release include new Tab Stack options for renaming and support for opening search results in a background tab when using text selected on a page. Source

  5. Tor Browser adds better HTML5 support, removes SHA-1 Tor browser 6.0 The Tor Project released today version 6.0 of its famous privacy-first Web browser, which is now based on the Firefox 45-ESR release, and features better HTML5 support and updated security features to safeguard encrypted traffic and its updates mechanism. There are a lot of people that hate the recent Australis-based Firefox versions, among which 45-ESR is one, mainly due to its revamped GUI that most users considered non-Firefoxey or too-Chromey. Nevertheless, the Web can get really lonely if the browser you're on doesn't fully support the modern technologies on which most websites are being built today. This update doesn't necessarily mean new features only, but throwing out the old as well, a picture perfect image of what the latest Tor Browser stable version is. Better HTML5 support means less Flash Being based on Firefox 45-ESR, Tor Browser 6.0 automatically brings in top-of-the-line HTML5 support, which should make it much easier now to leave your Flash plugin turned off on the majority of sites you're visiting. Since Flash can give away details like your IP, you should be staying away from Flash altogether if you value Tor more for its privacy features rather than for its ability to throw a different IP at you every time you boot it up. Secondly, Firefox 45-ESR also features support for the Push API for dynamic notifications, but also better support for the latest JavaScript standard, such as ES6 classes. The Tor team also brought in an important fix for Mac OS X, where the Tor Browser from now on will be using code-signing in order to avoid getting blocked by OS X's GateKeeper security app. Tor Browser 6.0 says good bye to SHA-1 The biggest changes, or at least in our eyes, are the modifications made to the browser's encryption layer. Since the Tor Browser works on top of an encryption-first protocol, support for modern cryptography must be up to par with such a reputation. As such, Tor Browser 6.0 has removed support for SHA-1 certificates, something that its bigger brothers such as Firefox, Chrome, and Edge have announced this past winter. These browsers are a little bit tardy, mainly due to their huge userbases and will be taking the first steps to remove SHA-1 at the end of June this year, and then a permanent step at the start of 2017. Furthermore, the latest Tor Browser version also comes with a better update mechanism, which now checks both the update package's signature and hash before running the update file. The team also fixed a simple yet serious DLL hijacking issue, and applied some quick fixes here and there to patch some urgent bugs, but the Project promised to deliver complete fixes for these issues in later versions. Tor partially fixes issues with its default search engine provider Last but not least, the Tor Project also clarified the situation of its default search engine, Disconnect, which is now displaying search results via DuckDuckGo's API, instead of Google. The Tor team explains that until Disconnect clarifies its situation with Google, the Tor Project has specifically asked the Disconnect team to supply them with DuckDuckGo search results instead of Bing, which they described as "basically unacceptable quality-wise." The Tor Browser 6.0 is available for download for the Linux, Mac, and Windows operating systems via Softpedia, but if you already have it installed, you should also be able to upgrade via its built-in updater. A full Tor Browser 6.0 changelog is also available. Article source

    Pale Moon 28.0.0.1

    Pale Moon is a custom-built and speed optimized Firefox browser. The Pale Moon project is the work of a single individual, using contributed Open Source code to create a full-featured, speed optimized browser based on the popular Firefox browser. Having seen the advantages on other systems (e.g. Linux) with regards to programs being compiled specifically for the capabilities of the machine it is installed on, it became obviously clear that Windows users were at a disadvantage: Mozilla only releases windows executables with maximum compatibility in mind, meaning that Firefox is made to run on as many different systems as possible, sacrificing efficiency and speed in the process to be compatible with, by current standards, absolutely ancient hardware. Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, meaning you may be losing speed and efficiency when you use your browser; and truth be told, most people use their browsers all the time!That needs to change, so, here is the Pale Moon project: Custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows Operating Systems. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser! In addition, later versions of Pale Moon aim to provide more freedom of choice than Mozilla about how people want to browse the web, and which feedback users want to see; efficiency, after all, should not stop at the engine of a browser, but extend to all parts of it, including the user interface. Specifically, Firefox 11 has redesigned the user interface after the visions of the Mozilla Firefox product directors and user experience team; unfortunately also removing essential functions and making a few less logical design choices. Users will find a slightly more conservative approach to changes in the user interface in the Pale Moon browser, which, although very close to Firefox, is (now more obviously so than before) a different product. However, these differences in layout do not prevent anyone from configuring their browser interface to exactly the way they want it to look and work (including like Mozilla Firefox’s default layout if they so wish). Features: Optimized for modern processors Firefox-based: As safe as Mozilla's flagship browser Supported by a friendly, active community of users Familiar, efficient, fully customizable interface (no Australis!) Smooth and speedy page drawing and script processing Increased stability: experience fewer browser crashes Support for Firefox extensions (add-ons) and themes Uses slightly less memory because of disabled optional code Support for SVG, Canvas and downloadable fonts Extensive support for HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL More customization and configuration options than Firefox Able to use existing Firefox profiles with the migration tool Changelog: v28.0.0.1 (2018-08-28) - Windows only This is a Windows-only update to address some stability/performance issues that have popped up with the new milestone release on especially 32-bit systems. The cause seems to be a compiler bug in Visual Studio 2015 with certain optimizations. Although 64-bit does not seem to be directly affected, we are still applying more cautious optimizations there too from this point forward until we can figure out exactly what the cause is and which (more aggressive) optimizations are safe to use.

    Yandex Browser 18.6.1.772

    Yandex Browser Yandex Browser is a simple and easy-to-use internet browser. The minimalist design allows you to focus on more important things. Its clutter-free interface gives you plenty of space for viewing webpages. Webpages load rapidly even with low connection speeds. The Yandex browser uses the WebKit engine, popular with a large number of web developers. The browser's user interface is based on the open-source Chromium code. The Yandex browser platform has, through a technological partnership with a key long term partner, been expanded to incorporate Opera Software's Turbo technology, which allows to boost the browser's page loading capacity even with a slow connection. Turbo mode Turbo mode will turn on automatically if your internet connection speed drops. Webpages open faster thanks to data compression technology, saving you both time and traffic. Loading speed is increased by reducing the amount of data to transfer. Page content is first compressed on Yandex servers before sending it to your browser. “Heavy” page elements (such as multimedia) are blocked and are not loaded at all. By default, automatic activation of Turbo mode is enabled in the browser settings. Turbo mode is activated if the download speed is less than 128 Kbit/s. When activated, the Turbo icon is displayed at the end of the address bar. When the speed reaches 512 Kbit/s or higher, Turbo mode is turned off and the icon disappears. Virus protection Yandex' own system scans millions of websites every day. Yandex Browser will warn you if you try to visit a harmful site. Every file you download will also be scanned for viruses by Kaspersky. The company's cloud-based safe browsing technology, together with Kaspersky Lab's security solution, enhances the browser's safety by warning the users about potentially malicious websites.

  8. The new browser might be called Fenix. Firefox is one of the many alternative browsers for Android devices available on the Google Play Store. It’s a favorite of many, especially the privacy-conscious. On Android, though, it has entered a maintenance phase, meaning there are not going to be many updates for the foreseeable future—barring bug fixes and security updates of course. According to Emily Kager, Mobile Engineer at Mozilla, there’s still a lot to look forward to. What does this mean? Well, those who use Firefox for its privacy and security have nothing to worry about. The browser will still get security updates and bug fixes. Maintenance mode just means that there will be no more new features until a later date. So where are Mozilla’s development efforts going to? Mozilla may be working on an entirely new browser based on the open-source Android Components. Android Components is a collection of Android libraries that can be used to build browsers or browser-like applications. Mozilla could use it for all of their browser projects on Android including Firefox Focus/Firefox Klar, Firefox Rocket, and other apps such as Firefox for Fire TV or Firefox Reality. This may have a number of unforeseen ramifications for Mozilla’s browser, though. That’s not to say that there is anything wrong with still using the browser, but users may feel slightly deterred from continuing to use it. With at least a few months ahead of no feature updates, some users may switch to open-source Chromium-based browsers like Bromite or Kiwi. We’ll see what comes of the new browser because it could be worth the wait. More information in the ghacks article. View: Original Article.

  10. Most of us tend to choose a web browser and stick with it for years. It can be hard to break away from your comfort zone – especially when you've become used to its quirks – but trying a different browser can greatly improve your experience on the web. Whether it's enhanced security, improved speed, or greater flexibility through customizable options and plugins, the right browser can have a huge effect on your online life. Here we've put the biggest browsers through their paces (plus one that you might not be familiar with) to identify the one that does the best job of ticking all those boxes, but if you have a particular concern then read on to see if there's an alternative that might be better suited to your needs. After several years dropping behind the competition in terms of speed, Firefox is back in the game with a fully updated code base 1. Mozilla Firefox Firefox is back after a total overhaul, and has retaken its crown ➕ Very fast ➕ Light on system resources ➕ Strong privacy tools Firefox recently received its biggest update in 13 years, and it's so impressive, it's propelled the browser to the top of our list. Firefox has always been known for its flexibility and support for extensions, but in recent years it had started to lag behind the competition in terms of speed. Firefox Quantum, first released last year, represented a total overhaul of the browser's code base, with speeds now comparable with Google Chrome. That's not just on top-end computers, either – the new Firefox makes frugal use of RAM, even with masses of tabs open. Firefox also scores serious points when it comes to privacy. Mozilla is non-profit, which means it doesn't have the same impetus to sell your data as some other browser developers. The organization also makes regular updates to help protect its users' privacy as internet companies come under increasing scrutiny over the way they treat people's data. Quantum also introduced a new system for extensions that prevents rogue developers making malicious changes to the browser's internal code. It's not always the absolute fastest – for some pages Chrome still has the edge, as Mozilla's own video demonstrates – but the new Firefox has come out swinging and is our pick for the best web browser of 2018 so far. Mozilla Firefox review Download Mozilla Firefox Chrome is a superb browser - fast and adaptable - if you aren't bothered by letting Google handle all your online activity 2. Google Chrome If your system has the resources, Chrome is 2017's best browser ➕ Fast performance ➕ Infinitely expandable ➖ Resource-hungry With Chrome, Google has built an extendable, efficient browser that deserves its place at the top of the browser rankings. According to w3schools' browser trend analysis its user base is only rising, even as Microsoft Edge's install numbers are presumably growing. Why? Well, it's cross-platform, incredibly stable, brilliantly presented to take up the minimum of screen space, and just about the nicest browser there is to use. Its wide range of easily obtained and installed extensions mean you can really make it your own, and there's support for parental controls and a huge range of tweaks and settings to ensure maximum efficiency. But there are downsides, and potentially big ones. It's among the heaviest browsers in terms of resource use, so it's not brilliant on machines with limited RAM, and its performance doesn't quite match up to others in benchmarking terms. And with Google's tentacles running through it, you might be uncomfortable with the ways in which your browsing data may be used. Google Chrome review Download Google Chrome Opera is a superb browser with a clean interface and built-in ad-blocker, plus a Turbo mode that makes slow connections more useable 3. Opera An underrated browser that's a great choice for slow connections ➕ Excellent Turbo mode ➕ Integrated ad-blocker ➖ Fewer plugins than rivals It's sad that Opera makes up only around 1% of the browser market, because it really is a quality browser. It launches fast, the UI is brilliantly clean, and it does everything its rivals can do with a couple of extras thrown in for good measure. The key reason we'd at least recommend having Opera installed alongside your main browser is its Opera Turbo feature. This compresses your web traffic, routing it through Opera's servers, which makes a huge difference to browsing speed if you're stuck on rural dial-up or your broadband connection is having a moment. It reduces the amount of data transferred too, handy if you're using a mobile connection, and this re-routing also dodges any content restrictions your ISP might place on your browsing, which can be mighty handy. Opera automatically ducks out of the way if you're using secure sites like banks so your traffic is free and clear of any potential privacy violation. There's also an integrated ad-blocker – which can be switched off if you're morally inclined in that direction – and a battery-saving mode which promises to keep your laptop going for longer. Opera review Download Opera Edge works on all your Windows 10 devices, with sandboxing for security and a special reading mode to isolate the important content on pages 4. Microsoft Edge Microsoft's new browser offers full integration with Windows 10 ➕ Very fast ➕ Built-in reading mode ➖ Not backwards compatible The default 'browsing experience' on Windows 10, and unavailable for older operating systems, Edge is an odd one. Quite why Microsoft needs to be running a pair of browser products in tandem rather than making Edge backwards compatible is beyond us. The company's reason, it seems, is that Edge represents the more user-friendly end of Redmond's offering while Internet Explorer scales a little better for enterprise. Integration with Windows 10's core gimmicks seems to be Edge's main strong point. It happily runs as a modern-skinned app on Windows 10's tablet mode, and works with Cortana. It's also highly streamlined for the current web age, doing away with insecure protocols like ActiveX and forcing you into Internet Explorer if you want to use them. We're more used to browsers failing to render newer pages than we are to being told off for visiting older corners of the web. Curmudgeonly grumbles aside, actually using Edge is a perfectly pleasant experience. It's super-quick, hammers through benchmarks, its integrated reading mode makes complex sites more palatable, and by sandboxing it away from the rest of the operating system Microsoft has ensured that Edge won't suffer the security breaches of its older brother. It's just a shame that Microsoft is quite so insistent on forcing Edge upon Windows 10 users, making it the default browser for links opened in the Mail app, adding shortcuts to your desktop after major OS updates, and presenting it as a potential result if you start typing 'Firefox' in the Cortana search box. Windows 10 (including Edge) review Get Windows 10 (including Edge) Microsoft Internet Explorer is a fast and powerful browser, and makes modest use of your system resources, though it lacks the flexibility of Firefox and Chrome 5. Microsoft Internet Explorer Fast and efficient, but less expandable than Firefox and Chrome ➕ Make frugal use of resources ➕ Clean design ➖ Poor plugin support Microsoft Internet Explorer has seen some ups and downs in its long tenure, from dominating the browser charts to languishing behind its main two competitors. This is partly an issue of choice – particularly the browser choice that Microsoft was forced to give customers after a court ruling – and partially because older versions fell behind the rendering and compatibility curve. There are no such issues with Internet Explorer 11. It's clean, powerful, highly compatible, and it demands less of your RAM and CPU than equivalent pages would on Chrome or Firefox. Plus it one-ups both of them on WebKit's Sunspider benchmark. That's not to say this browser is perfect. Google's V8 benchmark sees it struggling, and IE isn't quite as able to handle add-ons and extensions as many of its competitors. So while there's no reason to avoid IE like there might once have been, if you're looking for a more customised browsing experience you're out of luck. Download Microsoft Internet Explorer Vivaldi is a relatively new browser that's bound to see more development soon. Its interface is fully customizable, though it doesn't officially support extensions yet 6. Vivaldi Build your own browser with unique docking and tab-stacking ➕ Incredibly customizable ➕ Creative interface features ➖ Not the fastest Here's something a bit different. We all spend probably far too much time sitting in front of our web browsers, and up-and-comer Vivaldi wants to make that as pleasant and personal an experience as possible. The whole style and structure of its interface is entirely up to you. There's a built-in note-taking system, you can dock websites as side panels while using the main window to do your main browsing, and we love its innovative tab stacking tech, which allows you to group up tabs and move them around to avoid the crowding that so often plagues other browsers. Vivaldi is built on Chromium, which means you can expand it even further with extensions from the Chrome Web Store. Just pick your preferred plugin and click 'Add to Chrome'. Some extensions might behave slightly differently in Vivaldi, but most work perfectly. Vivaldi is a refreshing and creative take on web browsing, and one to watch in the next couple of years as more features are added. Vivaldi review Download Vivaldi Tor Browser is a heavily modified version of Firefox that re-routed web traffic via random nodes worldwide 7. Tor Browser More than just a browser – a whole suite of online security tools ➕ Keeps browsing private ➕ Blocks tracking cookies ➖ Performance is slow Tor Browser is, perhaps unjustly, most regularly associated with the seedy underworld of the dark web. While it's true that you can use this web browser to access otherwise unlisted sites, Tor's privacy aspects – where your traffic is routed through random nodes the world over, making it very hard to track - are its real asset. Tor Browser is really a package of tools; Tor itself, a heavily modified version of the Firefox Extended Support release, and a number of other privacy packages that combine to make it the most secure browsing experience you're likely to find. Nothing is tracked, nothing is stored, and you can forget about bookmarks and cookies. You'll need to alter your browsing habits to ensure that you don't perform actions online that reveal your identity – Tor Browser is just a tool, after all – but for a secondary browser useful for those private moments it's a great choice. Run it from a USB stick and nobody need even know you have it at all. Tor Browser review Download Tor Browser Techradar.com

    Pale Moon 27.8.0

    Pale Moon is a custom-built and speed optimized Firefox browser. The Pale Moon project is the work of a single individual, using contributed Open Source code to create a full-featured, speed optimized browser based on the popular Firefox browser. Having seen the advantages on other systems (e.g. Linux) with regards to programs being compiled specifically for the capabilities of the machine it is installed on, it became obviously clear that Windows users were at a disadvantage: Mozilla only releases windows executables with maximum compatibility in mind, meaning that Firefox is made to run on as many different systems as possible, sacrificing efficiency and speed in the process to be compatible with, by current standards, absolutely ancient hardware. Mozilla does not provide optimized browser packages for Windows, meaning you may be losing speed and efficiency when you use your browser; and truth be told, most people use their browsers all the time!That needs to change, so, here is the Pale Moon project: Custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows Operating Systems. Make sure to get the most speed and efficiency out of your browser! In addition, later versions of Pale Moon aim to provide more freedom of choice than Mozilla about how people want to browse the web, and which feedback users want to see; efficiency, after all, should not stop at the engine of a browser, but extend to all parts of it, including the user interface. Specifically, Firefox 11 has redesigned the user interface after the visions of the Mozilla Firefox product directors and user experience team; unfortunately also removing essential functions and making a few less logical design choices. Users will find a slightly more conservative approach to changes in the user interface in the Pale Moon browser, which, although very close to Firefox, is (now more obviously so than before) a different product. However, these differences in layout do not prevent anyone from configuring their browser interface to exactly the way they want it to look and work (including like Mozilla Firefox’s default layout if they so wish). Features: Optimized for modern processors Firefox-based: As safe as Mozilla's flagship browser Supported by a friendly, active community of users Familiar, efficient, fully customizable interface (no Australis!) Smooth and speedy page drawing and script processing Increased stability: experience fewer browser crashes Support for Firefox extensions (add-ons) and themes Uses slightly less memory because of disabled optional code Support for SVG, Canvas and downloadable fonts Extensive support for HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL More customization and configuration options than Firefox Able to use existing Firefox profiles with the migration tool Homepage: https://www.palemoon.org Changelog: https://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml Addons: https://addons.palemoon.org/ Themes: https://addons.palemoon.org/themes/ Installer : 32-bit: http://relmirror.palemoon.org/release/palemoon-27.8.0.win32.installer.exe 64-bit: http://relmirror.palemoon.org/release/palemoon-27.8.0.win64.installer.exe Portable : 32-bit: http://relmirror.palemoon.org/release/Palemoon-Portable-27.8.0.win32.exe 64-bit: http://relmirror.palemoon.org/release/Palemoon-Portable-27.8.0.win64.exe Language Packs : https://addons.palemoon.org/language-packs/

    Browser in the Box 4.6.1

    Browser in the Box The virtual environment for secured and comfortable web browsing Browsing the Internet has become an absolutely necessity in today’s work environments. No-one even considers collecting information without using the web. But our computers also process confidential and critical information such personal and company-internal data. Using the Internet offers huge benefits, but is also subject to constantly changing threats. The development of different browser versions in the past years can be seen not only as functional progress but as a constant race in the battle against various attack scenarios. Ever since the Internet has become active with the advent of Web 2.0, the balance between threats and benefits has been lost. “Active content” has become a standard part of modern web sites. Websites are more and more indistinguishable from full blown native applications. Programming interfaces like JavaScript, Java, ActiveX or VBScript provide a means for accessing the computer and its resources such as its file system or webcam. Trojans and viruses can abuse such powerful tools e.g. to steal confidential data. Companies and authorities alike are facing a dilemma: to substantially limit the use of the Internet or to find a way of living with existing threats.

    Basilisk Browser

    Basilisk is a free and Open Source XUL-based web browser, featuring the well-known Firefox-style interface and operation. It is based on the Goanna layout and rendering engine (a fork of Gecko) and builds on the Unified XUL Platform (UXP), which in turn is a fork of the Mozilla code base without Servo or Rust. Basilisk as an application is primarily a vessel for development of the XUL platform it builds upon, and additionally a potential replacement for Firefox to retain the use of Firefox Extensions. Basilisk is development software. This means that it should be considered more or less "beta" at all times; it may have some bugs and is provided as-is, with potential defects. Like any other Free Software community project, it comes without any warranty or promise of fitness for any particular purpose. That being said: of course we will do our best to provide an as stable and secure browser as possible with every official release of Basilisk. It should be noted that because of this focus on platform development, the browser itself (the application code) will be released and maintained mostly as-it-is, with very little change or development on the user interface or browser front-end features. What does this browser support? It supports a wide array of features required for the Modern Web, including advanced scripting, CSS, HTML5 and downloadable font support. It also fully supports all NPAPI plugins (e.g. Java, Unity web player, Media plugins, Authentication plugins). Further details can be found on the features page. Is this browser associated/affiliated with Mozilla? In one word: No. This browser is created and maintained by the team behind Pale Moon, and is a fully independent fork of the Mozilla/Firefox code.

  20. Today, Mozilla is announcing a plan that grows collaboration with Microsoft, Google, and other industry leaders on MDN Web Docs. The goal is to consolidate information about web development for multiple browsers – not just Firefox. To support this collaboration, we’re forming a Product Advisory Board that will formalize existing relationships and guide our progress in the years to come. Why are we doing this? To make web development just a little easier. “One common thread we hear from web developers is that documentation on how to build for the cross-browser web is too fragmented,” said Daniel Appelquist, Director of Developer Advocacy at Samsung Internet and Co-Chair of W3C’s Technical Architecture Group. “I’m excited to be part of the efforts being made with MDN Web Docs to address this issue and to bring better and more comprehensive documentation to developers worldwide.” More than six million web developers and designers currently visit MDN Web Docs each month – and readership is growing at a spectacular rate of 40 percent, year over year. Popular content includes articles and tutorials on JavaScript, CSS and HTML, as well as detailed, comprehensive documentation of new technologies like Web APIs. Community contributions are at the core of MDN’s success. Thousands of volunteers have helped build and refine MDN over the past 12 years. In this year alone, 8,021 users made 76,203 edits, greatly increasing the scope and quality of the content. Cross-browser documentation contributions include input from writers at Google and Microsoft; Microsoft writers have made more than 5,000 edits so far in 2017. This cross-browser collaboration adds valuable content on browser compatibility and new features of the web platform. Going forward, Microsoft writers will focus their Web API documentation efforts on MDN and will redirect relevant pages from Microsoft Developer Network to MDN. A Broader Focus Now, the new Product Advisory Board for MDN is creating a more formal way to absorb all that’s going on across browsers and standards groups. Initial board members include representatives from Microsoft, Google, Samsung, and the W3C, with additional members possible in the future. By strengthening our relationships with experts across the industry, the Product Advisory Board will ensure MDN documentation stays relevant, is browser-agnostic, and helps developers keep up with the most important aspects of the web platform. “The reach of the web across devices and platforms is what makes it unique, and Microsoft is committed to helping it continue to thrive,” said Jason Weber, Partner Director of Program Management, Microsoft Edge. “We’re thrilled to team up with Mozilla, Google, and Samsung to create a single, great web standards documentation set on MDN for web developers everywhere.” Mozilla’s vision for the MDN Product Advisory Board is to build collaboration that helps the MDN community, collectively, maintain MDN as the most comprehensive, complete, and trusted reference documenting the most important aspects of modern browsers and web standards. The board’s charter is to provide advice and feedback on MDN content strategy, strategic direction, and platform/site features. Mozilla remains committed to MDN as an open source reference for web developers, and Mozilla’s team of technical writers will continue to work on MDN and collaborate with volunteers and corporate contributors. “Google is committed to building a better web for both users and developers,” said Meggin Kearney, Lead Technical Writer, Web Developer Relations at Google. “We’re excited to work with Mozilla, Microsoft, and Samsung to help guide MDN towards becoming the best source of up-to-date, comprehensive documentation for developers on the web.” MDN directly supports Mozilla’s overarching mission. We strive to ensure the Internet is a global public resource that is open and accessible to all. We believe that our award-winning documentation helps web developers build better web experiences – which also adhere to established standards and work across platforms and devices. MDN Board Members Ali Spivak, Chair, Mozilla Daniel Appelquist, Samsung Internet Dominique Hazael-Massieux, W3C Meggin Kearney, Google Patrick Kettner, Microsoft Christopher Mills, Mozilla Erika Doyle Navara, Microsoft Robert Nyman, Google Kadir Topal, Mozilla Source Alternate Source - BleepingComputer

  23. Mozilla Firefox 55.0 has been released by Mozilla. The official release date of Firefox 55.0 is August 8, 2017. The new version of the web browser is already available, and will be offered on August 8 to existing users of the web browser provided that they have turned updates on. Firefox 55.0 breaks compatibility with older versions of the browser and Firefox ESR. Users who want to downgrade are advised to back up their profiles prior to installing the update. Firefox Beta, Nightly and ESR versions are also updated on the day. Firefox Beta is moved to Firefox 56.0, Firefox Nightly to Firefox 57.0, and Firefox ESR to 52.3. Executive Summary You cannot restore an older version / migrate to Firefox ESR after the upgrade to Firefox 55. Firefox 55.0 is the first version of Firefox that moves directly from Nightly to Beta. The new WebExtensions permissions systems is enabled. Firefox 55.0 download and update Direct download links for Firefox installation files: Firefox Stable download Firefox Beta download Nightly download Firefox ESR download Firefox unbranded builds information Firefox 55.0 Changes WebExtensions Permissions system is live Firefox 55 ships with a permissions system for WebExtensions. These are displayed to the user during installation of a WebExtension in the web browser, and during updates if new permissions are requested. A dialog is displayed to the user whenever a WebExtension is installed that requires permissions, and when a WebExtension is updated that requires new permissions. Firefox lists the requested permissions, e.g. access browser tabs, and users may continue with the installation or update by selecting "add" or "update", or cancel the process. Adobe Flash plugin restrictions Mozilla set the Adobe Flash plugin to click-to-play by default, and decided to restrict Flash to http and https pages. Mozilla notes that the change is rolled out gradually, and may not be visible immediately to all users. 5% of users two weeks after release. 25% of users a month after release. 100% of users six weeks after release. Search suggestions enabled by default Search suggestions, those displayed in the Firefox address bar when a user starts to type, are now enabled for all users except those who have opted out. Firefox users can manage search engines and suggestions by loading about:preferences#search in the browser's address bar. Users who don't want or require search suggestions can turn them off by removing the checkmark from "provide search suggestions" and "show search suggestions in location bar results". New "Performance" section in Settings Firefox 55 ships with a new performance section in Settings. Firefox users may select to run the browser with the recommended performance settings, or customize the following performance-related options: Toggle hardware acceleration. Set a content process limits for multi-process functionality. Page Shot screenshot functionality Firefox 55 users may notice a new screenshots icon in the Firefox main toolbar. This icon is not visible to all users at release, as Mozilla wants to run an A/B test first. Those Firefox users who have it in their browser already may use it to capture a region of the web browser, or a page, and save it locally or online on https://screenshots.firefox.com/. Other Firefox 55.0 changes Added Belorussian locale Assign custom shortcuts to Firefox on Mac OS X via System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts. Firefox 55 marks the beginning of theme support. The browser.theme.update API is available which features similar capabilities as Firefox lightweight themes. Geolocation API requires secure origin. Same is true for Storage API. Loading of mixed content allowed on localhost. Print preview feature to simplify print jobs. Remote jar files are not loaded by default anymore. Mozilla disabled support for the jar: protocol back in Firefox 45, but had to re-enable it because it broke IBM iNotes functionality. Firefox 55 disables jar: again as IBM updated iNotes so that it no longer requires remote jars. Firefox users who require the functionality may switch network.jar.block-remote-files to false to restore it. (Bug 1329336) Sidebar can be moved to the right. Support for WebVR. WebExtensions performance improvements, e.g. host matching, lazy loading APIs and more. Windows Stub installer simplified, option to select installation directory or program shortcuts removed. Firefox users need to use the full installer for these options. Developer Changes about:debugging page changes. Temporary add-ons are listed at the top, a remove button is now available, and help is shown if an extension has a temporary ID. Extensions may disable WebRTC. Network Monitor: show hide columns, remote IP, protocol, scheme, cookies and set cookies columns, filtering of network requests by column values and other properties, and regular expressions. New APIs: Collaborative Scheduling of Background Tasks API, WebVR 1.1 API, Intersection Observer API. Proxy API to insert proxy configuration files into Firefox. runtime.onMessageExternal API implemented to allow communication between WebExtensions add-ons. Support for EME on insecure contexts deprecated. webRequest API improvements, e.g. declining requests before cookies are processed. Firefox 55.0 for Android The following features are new or changed on Android (apart from those that were mentioned already for Firefox for the desktop): Option to zoom with one hand using double tap and drag gestures. Greek and Lao locales added. Accessibility settings have an option to respect the system's font size when displaying web pages. Security updates / fixes Security changes are announced after the official release. We will update the review when Mozilla publishes them.

  25. For several years, the consensus in the development community has been that browser crypto, via JavaScript, is a bad idea. There are many different reasons for this opinion, some of which are more dated than others. With our new InnoVault product, we aimed at making browser-based cryptography safe for our users. Old-School Challenges There are at least three fundamental challenges facing browser crypto: Secure Communication Until recently, enforcing TLS encryption on webpages was expensive and cumbersome to configure. You needed a pricey certificate from a third party, had to reconfigure your web server to support the traffic, and might miss out on some traffic unless you had a dedicated IP address for your machine. Without this kind of security, potential attackers could both eavesdrop on and modify any data flowing over the wire. This includes the actual scripts being used to perform cryptographic operations within the browser! Script Interference and XSS Browser crypto is, at its core, an exercise in trust. Users need to trust that site administrators are building a smooth, secure UX. Site administrators need to trust that outside vendors are delivering clean, bug-free scripts. Everyone is trusting that the scripts running in the browser are working as advertised; not stealing data, not corrupting information, not leaking any secrets. As sites can load scripts from any location, and these scripts can modify the behavior of one another, it can be difficult to trust that the environment is secure, no scripts are interfering with the cryptography, and that third party sites aren’t injecting malicious instructions. Actual Randomness Older browser versions only supported the vanilla Math.random() function for generating random numbers in JavaScript. This function, however, is not cryptographically secure. In many cases, it can be seeded deterministically and the values it produces can be predicted ahead of time. If Math.random(), is depended upon in a cryptographic environment, breaking that cryptography becomes trivial. New-School Solutions: Tozny’s Admin Console Tozny’s new admin console, which is the portal where customers both sign up for and manage their InnoVault account, addresses all of these concerns and more. The Console is a single-page JavaScript application, served from Amazon S3 via CloudFront and running entirely within the user’s browser. Thanks to new Amazon tools like [email protected], the site implements strong security headers as well. Secure Communication The entire Console app, both pages and assets, is served only over an encrypted HTTPS connection. In addition, the server automatically redirects any first-time requests to the unencrypted API back to the encrypted location. The server also enforces HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) headers to force browsers to only interact with the API over an encrypted connection. This prevents third parties from eavesdropping on any communication and ensures that the scripts sent to the browser are unmodified in transit from Tozny’s servers. Script Interference and XSS Modern browsers implement different tools to prevent scripts from containing malicious injections. One of these tools is a Content Security Policy (CSP). A CSP allows a website to identify and explicitly whitelist the domains and types of assets that are allowed to load on the page. If a script from an untrusted source is injected into the page, the browser will block that script’s execution. The Console explicitly identifies the only locations allowed to load scripts -- and blocks other unsafe tools like JavaScript’s eval() function. The only scripts that can execute in the console are those provided by Tozny directly (or by Stripe specifically for billing purposes). Actual Randomness The Console uses browser crypto both during authentication and to protect stored values the server is not meant to see. In both instances, the Console leverages libsodium.js, which in turn uses the cryptographically secure random number generator built into the modern WebCrypto API. Leveraging these strong, publicly visible tools makes it easier for outside parties to vet and verify the work performed under the hood. InnoVault Script Security The front-end InnoVault scripts implement browser crypto as well and, like the Console itself, leverage strong security to protect from abuse. Firstly, these scripts are only ever delivered to client sites over HTTPS, providing a secure line of communication from your users’ browsers directly to Tozny’s content delivery network. Secondly, Tozny publishes the SHA hash of these scripts’ contents publicly, enabling your site to leverage Subresource Integrity (SRI). Subresource Integrity allows the site to specify a valid hash for any scripts being used. After the browser downloads the scripts, it will independently verify the hash before allowing execution. This prevents any potential manipulation of the scripts in transit, making it easier for end users to trust the integrity of the operations being performed in the browser. Finally, Tozny strongly encourages anyone integrating with InnoVault to follow the best practices outlined by tools like Mozilla’s Observatory. Observatory will proactively scan your site to ensure it consistently: Implements a strong Content Security Policy and whitelists the safe sources allowed on the site Blocks Cross-origin Resource Sharing to prevent remote interaction with the site Implements HTTPS for encryption Forces HSTS to prevent security downgrade attacks Protects against iFrame embeds and sets XSS Protection headers Scoring an A+ with Observatory doesn’t necessarily mean that your site is 100% secure. It does mean you’re following best practices and making solid steps towards a stable, secure website and can more safely use tools like browser crypto on modern browsers. Tozny’s Admin Console scores an A+, and we are committed to providing the best tools possible for you to safely integrate browser crypto tools like InnoVault with your own site. Article source
