Firefox version 20 with full of innovations!



Mozilla has finally released version 20 of its browser Firefox. A version number of iconic, the browser offers significant improvements. We note in particular the movement of downloads in an integrated list and the ability to use the private browsing mode in a separate window. Firefox 20 is a relatively large milling Mozilla browser. Unlike many other versions, it provides several significant new functions in the field, in addition to traditional improvements under the hood. In fact, Firefox offers 20 well increase overall performance (Page loading, downloads, zip, etc.).


One of the main innovations is clearly the new Private Browsing mode. As a reminder, it can navigate in a special session experiencing no trace. This is valid for the complete history, identifiers, downloads, cookies and all data can generate browser. However, until now, the private browsing mode (MNP) was exclusive: it replaced the conventional navigation, and it was therefore close the window to return to normal mode, but this is no longer the case. The NPM can now be launched from the Firefox menu, opening an additional window. The user can have both at the same time. Note that Firefox, unlike Internet Explorer or Chrome, does not use a separate process for each tab. It is this lack that originally made the exclusive MNP. Even if the separation process is still not ready, the work was sufficient to separate the classical and private bodies. Download list is no longer in a separate window, but directly in the main window itself. Simply click on the button to see the latest downloads made, but it is still possible to open the dedicated window. It is also merged with the history and bookmarks. Mac users should note that this is exactly the presentation in Safari for several years. Another important feature is the management of plug-ins. Work on the MNP was coupled to reinforced insulation third party modules. Mozilla says so in case of a crash because of one of the plug-ins, Firefox behavior is affected.

Other improvements are more under the hood and / or dedicated developers:

The implementation of the ECMAScript standard 6 continues

 A new JavaScript profiler appeared

 Many improvements around the audio and video tags HTML5 Support modes "blend" for canvas elements

 Implementation of the method get User Media for access to micro and webcam (with user permission)

 In addition, several bugs have been fixed and several security vulnerabilities, including three critical. Of particular note is a breach exploitable WebGL for graphics and video drivers crash Mesa on Linux.


 Firefox 20 is also available for Android. Improvements are not quite the same, but there are improvements Commons. For example, the mobile browser also manages the new private browsing mode, but in a new tab. Two other improvements are in the game. On the one hand, the area finally became Top Sites customizable. So users can move, delete, and add their own particular sites. On the other hand, Gingerbread and Honeycomb versions of Andoid are now supported for hardware decoding of H.264, AAC and MP3. This is an improvement that wills undoubtedly significant difference for users. Please note a few other changes and improvements. For example, the Exit menu has been removed to follow the conventions of Android versions from Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and later. Mozilla said that once you are finished browsing, simply use the buttons Home or Back to exit the browser. In addition, the requirements memory for Firefox is so much reduced. Now, 384 MB of RAM is required instead of 512, and the minimum supported resolution is QVGA (320 x 240). The update is already available in the Play Store last night.

6 Ways Toolbars are Hurting Your User Experience

Got toolbar-overload? Toolbars can be incredibly useful—but also a gigantic pain that slows down your browser and causes total frustration. The worst toolbars are those that you never actually wanted to install, but unknowingly accepted as an add-on for a purchase or app download. If you’re not careful, you could end up with multiplying toolbars that are totally clogging up your browser—and possibly stealing your identity.
  1. Toolbars can multiply over time. When you install a new version of your browser, you’re usually asked to automatically install a new version of the toolbar as well. But that doesn’t mean the old version disappeared. If you go through this process several times, you could end up with half a dozen versions of the same toolbar clogging up your browser without even realizing it. The more toolbars you have installed, the longer your search results and pages will take to load.

  1. Toolbars can be spyware. Some toolbars are designed to track your habits across the web or target unwanted advertisements. But these toolbars can cause major frustrations. In addition to crowding your browser, you may be getting pornographic pop-up windows out of nowhere and your search results could be wonky.

In some cases, these toolbars can cause a slew of ads and pop-ups to appear when you’re trying to access a legitimate site, causing you to have to close half a dozen or more spam windows before you’re able to view the content you’re trying to access. Few things are more frustrating than being inundated with pop-up windows that prevent you from accessing the legitimate search results you’re trying to click on.

  1. You might be running toolbars you don’t even know you have. Many spyware and adware toolbars slyly install themselves without your knowledge. If you’re getting strange pop-up windows, you could have an incognito toolbar that’s messing with your user experience.

There are tools you can use to remove some of the better-known malicious toolbars, such as Utorrent, Toolbar Buddy and Facemoods.  If you suspect you have unapproved toolbars running in the background slowing down your browser speed, you can check to see which toolbars are installed in your browser’s settings.

  1. Toolbars could be stealing your identity.  Some of the more advanced spyware toolbars act as key-loggers, tracking both your web activity and your usernames and passwords. Armed with this information, hackers can obtain valuable personal data, including financial information, to steal your identity, use your credit cards and much worse.

  1. Toolbars can trick you into thinking you’ve removed them. When you’re trying to remove a toolbar, make sure you’re following the right protocol. Otherwise, you might think you’ve successfully removed it by right-clicking and selecting “remove.” But in reality, all you’ve probably accomplished is hiding it from view—allowing it to continue doing its dirty work behind the scenes, without your knowledge. For how to remove toolbars.

  1. Toolbars can act as portals for viruses and malware. Even toolbars that appear safe on the surface take up additional resources to run in your browser. Because they’re installed, they have a higher level of access to your machine than a stand-alone website would have. If you have one of these toolbars installed and you’re taken to an advertisement that contains malicious files, the toolbar could be the very thing that creates an access channel for the code to enter your browser, machine and even your entire network.
If you’re being inundated with strange pop-ups and advertisements or if your browser seems to be running unusually slow, you might have some shady toolbars installed. Removing these pesky add-ons will not only improve your user experience, but it might just save you from identity theft.

YouTube wants to integrate streaming features in video games!



YouTube's reputation is more to do for video distribution, but there is one point on which Google platform is late, that is in live content, especially for the players. However, the side of Mountain View, it seems to rectify the situation.At the Games Developers Conference held in San Francisco, Google announced a new set of APIs would soon be available to allow game developers to more easily integrate the functions of "live streaming" in their titles. This feature has already been tested in blockbusters like Call of Duty Black Ops 2, but may in the future go with many others. The principle is rather simple API allows developers to send a video stream from a game for the YouTube broadcast live on its platform. Google is clearly talking about come cut the grass under the feet of Sony and its PlayStation 4, which offer a similar service. We can also ask how the cohabitation between the service console Japanese Ustream and YouTube will be, when a game has to go through YouTube. Other platforms already well established and Twitch TV could also suffer from the competition of the Mountain View Company. It will be interesting to see if popular PC games like League of Legends or Starcraft II will take advantage of this opportunity to increase the audience of their tournaments. These are followed by a large crowd public already, but they could reach a wider target by leveraging the exposure of YouTube and its billion users.

Resale of used MP3 prohibited in the United States!!!



From now you cannot sell your used MP3! U.S. court gave a negative answer to this simple question, but the economic impacts are feared by music majors. Since from the opening day of October 2011; ReDigi angered music producers, including Emi (Universal Music). And for good reason, this site specializes in the resale of used MP3. More precisely, ReDigi allows the resale files purchased on iTunes or ReDigi, not those ripped from a CD. To do so, the seller gets rid of the file in the cloud securely in favor of a purchaser. ReDigi scans for this purpose the source hard disk to ensure that the seller is relieved. A meager checks, but feels ReDigi covered by the First Sale Doctrine. Jurisprudential theory allows not entitled to receive royalties for the first sale, not beyond. Capitol Records, a subsidiary of EMI has always considered this illegal business. It attacked ReDigi in January 2012 claiming a whopping 150,000 dollars per file. In February 2012, the U.S. court rejected a first order, however, did not give up and this time it got a favorable decision on March 30 by Judge Richard J. Sullivan. "The courts have consistently held that the duplication of music files on the Internet infringes exclusive monopoly rights holders.

To arrive at this conclusion (judgment), the court finds that the first sale doctrine does not apply in the context of digital files. When the user sells a file via ReDigi, he does not sell his file, but a duplicate of this file at ReDigi then stored in the buyer. If the First Sale Doctrine applies to the sale of a K7, a book or a vinyl record used, it cannot prevail here since there is no original sale. In other words, the owner of the songs purchased from iTunes could sell them, but only by selling its hard drive. The Amazon and Apple have filed patents in this field of resale of used files. Amazon is seeking a patent on such resale of digital files used on the internet as eBooks, music titles or other software already purchased legally in dematerialized form. The solution given in terms of copyright in the United States contradicts with that of the Court of Justice of the European Union, made this time for sale software license.

 In the famous UsedSoft stop, the Luxembourg Court held that "the principle of exhaustion of the distribution right applies not only when the holder of the copyright sells copies of its software on a physical medium (CD-ROM or DVD), but also when it distributes for download from its website. " According to the ECJ, the original purchaser of a copy of a computer program must "render useless the downloaded copy on your own computer at the time of resale. Is that the solution of the ECJ will be transposed to the world of software than music? The answer could find in the coming months.
