Firefox 15 to arrive in finished form on August 29th, promises truly stealthy updates for all (update 2: stand-alone, Android too)
Update 2: It’s now easier to get a stand-alone copy if you’re not updating, since Mozilla just updated the Firefox front page to reflect the new version. Android users are also getting an update through Google Play that brings earlier speed updates to tablets, a personalized start page and a whole host of extra fixes, some of which come directly from the desktop Firefox 15.
With Google tasking itself to organize all of the world’s information, you’d think its own Chrome Web Store would be a bit easier to navigate. Apparently this revelation dawned on someone at the company, because it’s just introduced several enhancements that should help users find new and useful extensions for their browser. Along with faster autocomplete searches and new subcategories, you’ll now find badges that denote an application’s offline functionality and games that can be played on Google+, with additional badges said to be in the works. There’s even a new trending section, where users can discover recently popular titles that rank from “warm” to “on fire.” If it’s been a while since you’ve last visited the Chrome Web Store, now could be an ideal time to peruse the new features. You might even start a trend.
