How to Customize Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts

It is a know fact how useful the shortcut can be especial when you are trying to browser through different application or the websites. But to be honest a coin always has another side and same is with the computer shortcuts. They at time are so difficult to remember you end up using your mouse. But should their not be a way around and I was determined for the same. Especially some one like me who has keeps browsing, different website on Firefox. So I found something helpful that may be useful for all the readers. Firefox has an add-on called Customizable Shortcut version 0.5.8. from Tim Taubert. It does not requires you to restart the Firefox so once it is installed you are ready to add your own shortcuts to Firefox so that you can run the browser faster than before and without the mouse.

You can follow the following steps to create your own shortcuts. First step is to click on the tools and then go to the option. In order to open it with the shortcut you can use Alt+T and then “o”. This will bring the options menu and then please click on the one that says Shortcuts on the far right hand side. Once you click on it then you can modify any one the mentioned shortcut. Not only will it help you customize the short cut but will also help you speed up your work on the Firefox. But before you download this add-on please make sure you have also upgraded the version of the Firefox as it requires the latest version of the browser.  Once done with the shortcut you can use it but it will also work in case you upgrade the browser in future. Thus resolving the problem of remembering the short cut, as you can set them as per your choice, not only set them but you can change them back to anything else if you want. Any combination of shift, ctrl spacebar or any key you want. For example I have set ctrl+shift for a new tab as it is closer and more convenient for me to use.

Thus concluding with the note that your computer is fast but it can work much faster if it is give the required upgrade it requires from time to time. So we wish you all the best with browning computer with these additional benefits from this new add-on.

Mozilla Shrinks Firefox’s Memory Appetite by 20%-30%

Mozilla’s Firefox 7, slate to liner during September, resolve be alive drastically sooner since of job finished plugging the memory leaks of the browser.  This was the statement of a company developer. “Firefox 7 applies a reduced amount of reminiscence than Firefox 6 (and 5 and 4): habitually 20% to 30% fewer, furthermore occasionally at the same time as much as 50% less,” Nethercote declared. “This way Firefox 7 is drastically fast and doesn’t crash easily, chiefly if you have a lot of websites unbolt next to once plus/or keep Firefox consecutively for a extensive time between restarts.” It has been the victim of criticisms since a long time. It was mainly due to the use of large capacity of RAM, & on the other hand not releasing the memory on closing the tabs respectively. It even caused some of the lock ups situations that sometimes led to the crashes.

This really made the user feel irritated. This is not for the first time but attempts have been made by Mozilla for eliminating these leaks. If we go back to the year 2008, it was quite a significant year for the same. Two companies came in the picture claiming that they are on the spree of constructing Firefox 3 that will gift the user with more consistency along with improved & more sophisticated memory handling techniques. It really gave the competitors a frosty nosed gesture. Sometimes the reputation of Firefox is claimed to be as a memory hog by cyber buffs. It was due to that reason Firefox was not able to perform according to the expectations & it regressed thoroughly. A large number of operations really made the system a very confusing application & some of the very aggressive traits that made this collection a super flop. Maximum of these characters were mainly effective in the first version of Mozilla, but failed in the latter half.

Consistence seemed to be the major & perhaps the main problem in this application. Next to what time the reminiscence come out to be in the reduced state, it turned out to be a result oriented & positive aspect.  Security is not an option.

Apple® patches 62 bugs in Safari® update

Safari from Apple, is a graphical web browser, which is an inherent part of the Mac OS X operating system. Safari is principally the native browser in the iOS also. Safari was originally introduced in 2003 as a public beta version, slowly becoming the default browser in all Macs. The Microsoft Windows version of Safari was released in the year 2007. In the rankings of most widely used browsers in the US, Safari stands 4th in the line of following including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

After Safari 1.0 in 2003, Safari 2.0 in 2005, Safari 3.0 in 2007, Safari 4.0 in 2008, Safari 5 was released in mid 2010. Apple has brought about a very interesting change in browsing in Safari. Some of the interesting features include Bookmark Integration with the address book, Web Page Clips Saving to the Apple Dashboard, flexible search box in the tool bar for Google, Yahoo! or Bing, private browsing, support for HTML 5, support for Transport Layer Security, Document Object Model Inspector of Web Pages and many others.

Security vise the PWN2OWN contest of 2008, CanSecWest Security conference, in Vancouver, brought about the weaknesses in Safari. The Safari was the first to fall in the hacking competition with the successful exploit of the same, bringing the Mac OS as the first OS to fail. This flaw exposed by the contest was duly patched, taking care of other vulnerabilities also in the Safari 3.1.1 update.

PWN2OWN 2009 also brought about the fall of the Safari and Apple introduced the 3.2.3 patch to take care of the exploits. In the PWN2OWN 2010 contest, again the Safari fell first before the Internet Explorer, the iPhone, the Nokia and then the Mozilla Firefox. The 2011 PWN2OWN again, the Safari was the first to fall in the contest.

In fact, after the November 2010 patch of Safari, by Apple fixing 27 flaws, to the new version of the Safari was introduced only in June 2010, the Safari 5 saw its biggest update and patch recently. Apple introduced a new patch covering 62 bugs, just before the PWN2OWN contest vide Safari 5.0.4. This patch covered mainly vulnerabilities in the Webkit engine of the browser. For information the Webkit engine powers the Google Chrome also. Besides the Webkit vulnerabilities several non-security issues were also addressed.

Even if the Safari proved itself to be, about the fastest of browsers, and the prime choice of many a user, a French hacker managed to break the brand new Safari 5.0.4 in barely five seconds. The 5.0.4 update was released only a few minutes before the competition. The next to fall was the Internet Explorer 8. Although the contest predefined which versions of browsers were eligible to be tested at the contest, hackers have managed to break through even later versions of browser releases.

Motorola® Atrix

Motorola Atrix 4G is powered by the NVIDIATegra 2 SoC dual core processor with 1 GB RAM. It has the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. Motorola and Lenovo have introduced products which defeat the concept of mobile phones, in light of their introduction of tablets, which, when connected to their docking stations perform like laptops. It is definitely an interesting concept of the smart phone in the 4G world today. Are we looking at carrying our laptops in our palms, or, something beyond that? Both these giants have proven that we can move around with a mobile phone, without the bulk of the laptop, and performing as a laptop when we want it to, back in the office or home premises where we need more competing power, beyond what we have on the move.

This Atrix attempt, of merging the two worlds of the smart phone and the PC, sounds great. With the dock you no more have to keep playing with a small little virtual keyboard and can use the full keyboard and mouse provided. The long battery life and the unique built in charger, will provide long haul operations like on flights, and with a larger display also. The resolution on the dock screen, a 15 inch display seems a bit low, and may call for improvement.

Motorola Atrix also has a sleek media player application with fairly decent audio and video. The docking station or the laptop shell as we call it, is using, a modification of the standard Android OS, and in future may be run using a Motorola version of Linux. The web browser on the laptop seems good. The shortcuts to folders, directories, file-browser, Mozilla Firefox etc. seem to be an interesting development. You can also make and receive phone calls using the speaker phone provided in the laptop, or the Bluetooth headset of the phone, allowing you to do everything that you do on your phone even when docked.
