THE MOZILLA FIREFOX by Syed Akhlaq Hussain

Good morning all,
Moziilla Foundation has always worked to make the Web more accessible to everyone, and apart from Firefox OS, there are other tools such as the Firefox Browser, Firefox Marketplace, etc.Firefox OS, powered by Gecko engine, runs only websites in the form of apps, known as web apps. These apps are built using HTML, the same technology that powers the Web. These web apps will run on many operating systems in addition to Firefox OS. Every operating system (including Android and Windows 8) that runs Firefox browser will be able to run these web apps distributed through Firefox Marketplace.Mozilla has developed Web APIs so that HTML5 apps can communicate with the device’s hardware, which was only possible for native apps until now, e.g. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Camera, etc.
Mozilla arranges to introduce the Windows 10 form of its Firefox program in August or September, and is now demonstrating what the new program will resemble.
The open-source engineer uncovered recently that it had turned around course and would create a program for Microsoft's new working framework, which touches base on July 29. Mozilla had deserted that thought a year ag
The Mozilla Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to support and collectively lead the open source Mozilla project. Founded in July 2003, the organization sets the policies that govern development, operates key infrastructure and controls Mozillatrademarks and copyrights. It owns a taxable subsidiary: the Mozilla Corporation, which employs many Mozilla developers and coordinates releases of the Mozilla Firefox web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird email client. The subsidiary is 100% owned by the parent, and therefore follows the same non-profit principles. The Mozilla Foundation was founded by the Netscape-affiliated Mozilla Organization. The organization is currently based in the Silicon Valley city of Mountain View, California, United States.
Firefox 3.0 uses version 1.9 of the Gecko layout engine for displaying web pages. This version fixes many bugs, improves standards compliance, and implements many new web APIs compared to Firefox 2.0. Other new features include a redesigned download manager, a new "Places" system for storing bookmarks and history, and separate themes for different operating systems. Firefox was made in 2002 under the name "Phoenix" by the Mozilla group individuals who needed a standalone program instead of the Mozilla Application Suite bundle.Beginning as a fork of the Navigator segment of the Mozilla Application Suite, Mozilla Firefox has subsequent to turn into the establishment's principle advancement concentrate (alongside the Thunderbird mail and news customer), supplanting the Mozilla Suite as the establishment's official primary programming release.As of November 2008, Firefox had around 20% of the piece of the overall industry for programs, around the world. Web Explorer had around 70%. Firefox is a standout amongst the most prominent web programs today.

FireFox Hello by Tushar Sharma
Firefox Hello, the first global communications system built directly into a browser to help make things easier. Firefox Hello provides more value to Firefox users by making it easier to communicate with your friends and family who might not have the same video chat service, software or hardware as you. It’s free to make voice and video calls and there’s no need to download software, plugins or even create an account. Hello allows you to connect with anyone who has a WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) -enabled browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera.
The features includes:
  • Call Options
One of the great features of Firefox Hello is that you don’t need to create an account in order to connect with the people that matter to you most. You simply share a callback link with the person you want to connect with and when they click on the link the call begins.

  • Safe, secure, protected
Because Hello is built right into Firefox, you can rest easy knowing that your conversations and information will remain private and secure. And thanks to WebRTC-grade encryption, you’ll enjoy an added level of security.
  • Contacts Integration
You can add contacts to your address book manually or import contacts from your Google account to Firefox Hello. Simply select ‘Import Contacts’ from the address book and then sign into your Google account to give permission. If your contacts have a Firefox Account and are online, then you can call these contacts directly from Firefox.

If you login with your Firefox account on your browser then there is no need to share a link or integrate contacts, Firefox Hello sync your data over your devices, just login with google or your Firefox account and start the conversations and share your moments…..
