If you're a smartphone browsing type, one of the more challenging aspects has long been that there's not a whole lot of choice in the mobile browsing arena, with many users sticking with their default browser; if you wanted choice, there was Opera Mobile, and that's about it.
Mozilla has a team responsible for mobile Firefox development,under the product name Fennec. Why Fennec? Well, the Fennec Fox is a smaller member of the fox family, or in other words, a smaller version of Firefox. This is apparently what passes for punnery in the development community.
Open-source software development initiative Mozilla expects to finalize development of its mobile Firefox browser on the Symbian platform by the middle of next year, according to a blog post by Christian Sejersen, Mozilla's director of mobile engineering.
Earlier this year, the company said it is in informal talks with mobile operators about its free Mobile Firefox browser. At the time, Mozilla said it would release mobile browsers for the Linux and Windows Mobile operating systems.
Microsoft> on Monday announced the release of a final "refresh" of its beta Windows Live Essentials applications.
The updated applications include Windows Live Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Writer, Toolbar, and Family Safety, according to the Windows Experience blog.
The applications will become key to Microsoft's Windows 7, which will not ship with e-mail reading software and other conveniences traditionally included with Windows.
The blog post offers little by way of explaining the changes, except to say that the developers are "getting very close to the final release" and want to make sure the software is stable.
"Beginning on December 15, we are giving existing beta customers the ability to download the latest version of the Windows Live Essentials suite as a means to get feedback on the changes that we've made to date and confirm that the applications will be ready for full-scale release in the coming months," a Microsoft spokesperson said in an e-mail.
The updates include some minor changes, such as the way signature sounds are handled, but major features remain the same. The software is available for download from download.live.com.
The versions released today aren't dramatically different from the Windows Live Wave 3 apps w But Microsoft says the latest beta refresh means that the company is almost ready to take the beta label away and say that the Windows Live Essentials apps are ready to call final.
There is, however, a rather lengthy list of known issues, especially for users who are running Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. So you might want to check out the release notes and system requirements before installing Windows Live Essentials.
Firefox only (Windows/Mac/Linux): Greasefire is a companion extension to the popular Greasemonkey extension designed to help you customize your web browsing by finding user scripts for any page you're currently visiting.
Once installed, the extension automatically searches the popular Greasemonkey script repository Userscripts.org for scripts related to the site you're visiting; if a script is available, the Greasemonkey icon in your Firefox status bar will display a fiery background to indicate that it found matches. For Lifehacker, as you can see from the photo above, Greasefire found nine matching scripts.
From there, installing new scripts is simple. Just click the "X scripts available" entry, then browse and find a script you like in the pop-up window. Click the install button at the bottom of the window when you find something you like.
Greasefire is a free download, works wherever Firefox does.

Nowadays it is very common to hear about online security vulnerability with email and domains being stolen by unauthorized third parties. As a frequent internet surfer, how are you going to ensure your Gmail is safe from being attacked by phishers and prevent your private information from being stolen by third parties?
You never know or suspect the email is actually sent by phisher as the web page looks like a legitimate site you have visited before. Phishers can imitate as banks, email, online merchants, payment services providers and even governments that you may be confused with what they have claimed and follow the instructions to enter your username, password and other private information on the site. All these information can be used by phishers to steal your bank money, open new credit card applications under your name and etc. In order to prevent or minimize such incident from happening, there are few tips you can apply to prevent phishers’ attacks:
• Examine if there are any suspicious filters which are not created by you Access to your Gmail account, go to Setting -> Filters, then verify if there are any filters which are not created by you. Delete them right away if there is any.
• Disable Forwarding and POP/IMAP Access to your Gmail account, go to Setting -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP, disable forwarding, POP and IMAP if you have not used them.
• Be alert when being asked for sensitive information. Any email or link in the email asking about your user name, password, bank account number or other personal information need to be cautious before submitting those information. Bear in mind that most of the legitimate websites never ask for sensitive information through this channel.
• Do not click on suspicious links in email If you receive an email asking for private information from a organization which you know of, instead of clicking on the link directly from the email, go to the organization website directly by typing the address in URL. If there is something you need to do, usually there will be an announcement on the homepage. If you can’t find any information from the homepage, don’t hesitate to call the respective party to find out more.
• Use a browser that has a phishing filter Use the the latest versions of browsers such as Firefox 3.x,Internet Explorer 7 and Opera 9.x which have included phishing filters for safer web browsing experience without being interrupted by these kind of phishing activities.
• Do not be deceived by “great offers” or fantastic advertisement Whenever you have received any online offers and requires you to enter private information, don’t be too excited and make sure that it is really safe or try to find more information.
