    My company switched from MSOffice to OpenOffice. This product is great and offers anything a modern company needs. Nobody wants to go back. Byebye MS!

  • IBM has announced that the company is "moving to Firefox as its default browser," mainly because the browser is "stunningly standards compliant" and not "beholden to one commercial entity."

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    IBM has about 400,000 employees so Mozilla is likely to see a small jump in market share over the coming months, as employees move to the browser at work, and then most likely back at home, as well.

    When asked why the company-wide move, VP of open source and Linux Bob Sutor said: "Firefox is stunningly standards compliant, and interoperability via open standards is key to IBM's strategy. Firefox is open source and its development schedule is managed by a development community not beholden to one commercial entity. Firefox is secure and an international community of experts continues to develop and maintain it. Firefox is extensible and can be customized for particular applications and organizations, like IBM. Firefox is innovative and has forced the hand of browsers that came before and after it to add and improve speed and function."

    Additionally, the tech company will "strongly encourage our vendors who have browser-based software to fully support Firefox."

    Just another nail in Internet Explorer's coffin.

  • Mozilla is to take the web-browser fight to rivals Google Chrome and Microsoft IIE 8.0 with a private-browsing mode in Firefox 3.1, according to notes posted on its website. Firefox 3.1 is expected to enter public beta next month.

    "[It should] ensure that users can't be tracked when doing 'private' things," said Conner in an email to another Mozilla developer. Specifically, the mode would:
    o Discard all cookies acquired during the private session.
    o Not record sites visited to the browser's history.
    o Not auto-fill passwords, and not prompt the user to save passwords.
    o Remove all downloads done during the session from the browser's download manager.

    Apple Inc.'s latest version of iTunes crashes Windows Vista when an iPod or iPhone is connected to the PC, scores of users have reported on Apple's support forum.

    As soon as an iPod or iPhone is plugged into the PC, Vista crashes and shows the "blue screen of death" (BSOD), the critical error screen on a blue background that requires a reboot to recover, users said. The errors began showing up immediately after updating iTunes to Version 8.0, which Apple released Tuesday as part of its iPod refresh.
