There’s an interesting discussion on Slashdot about SSL certificates. It brings up two valid points: Invalid certificates, while providing a secure mechanism between the client/server are extremely annoying to use in Firefox 3 for many people because of the multi-step process. Previously it was just a warning dialog. There are no free SSL certificates that […]

Congrats to everyone involved. It’s now a world record. The magic number is 8,002,530. Even after the first 24 hours, the downloads keep coming. 3.0 is one hell of a good release.
This really isn’t very accurate. I don’t know the details of the vulnerability or even if there actually is one, but I question the marketing around the Zero Day Initiatives vulnerability report.

Check out Robert Scoble on Firefox 3. I’d quote him, but I can’t find the appropriate part to quote. I get the impression he’s used it a few times before.
It’s happening again. Once upon a time, browser vendors started adding their own features without consulting with each other and agreeing upon standards. What they created was a giant mess of inconsistencies across browsers and platforms that is still in effect today. Ask any web developer and they can tell you of the pains that […]
