  1. OkCupid Is Not OK With Mozilla’s New CEO Not Supporting Marriage Equality, Wants You to Not Support Firefox

    It turns out the fox says, "Whoops."

    OkCupid is all about finding people love, and they're not happy that Mozilla's new CEO is all about that love only being between two people of opposite genders. So, they've left a disclaimer on their main page for users of the Mozilla-owned Firefox browser that they should maybe find a more inclusive browser.

    Tu quieres Firefox OS phone?

    The ZTE Open, the first commercial Firefox OS phone, released this month, but so far it's only available in Spain with a few other countries coming soon. The specifications hardly compare to high-end smartphones, but you really can't beat the price. The ZTE Open retails for €69, or about $88.

  3. Mozilla Would Like You to Stop Making Your Spyware Look Like Firefox

    Gamma International makes commercial spyware that governments and other entities use for various spy stuff. One of the reasons Gamma's software works is that it disguises itself as Mozilla's Firefox browser so that the people being spied upon don't delete it. That's clever, but Mozilla would like them to knock it off. Mozilla's even sent a cease and desist letter to Gamma.

  4. Windows 8 To Cripple Third Party Browsers on Tablets, Mozilla and Google Cry Foul

    Everybody talks trash about Internet Explorer. It's just what you do. And yes, Internet Explorer might not be quite as bad as it used to be, but you'd still be hard pressed to find a loyal fan. Those of us who are loyal fans of other browsers might have something to start worrying about. Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8 designed for use on tablets, effectively cripples all third-party browsers, and will force hapless users to go crawling back to IE whether they want to or not. Unsurprisingly, Google and Mozilla are less than pleased, and are making their opinions known.

  5. Mozilla Stands Against CISPA, First Major Tech Company To Do So

    When CISPA passed in the House, we had our first real wake-up call. While many tech companies are staying silent on the matter, Mozilla is the first major tech company to come out and ream CISPA for infringing on privacy and being ripe for abuse. For the most part, CISPA actually makes life easier for most tech companies by protecting them from practically all liability should they share information with the U.S. government, so this opposition is largely in principle as opposed to some sort of savvy business move. Hopefully, Mozilla will help set an example for other companies that are as of yet only tentatively opposed.

  6. Mozilla Releases Open Source HTML5 Browser MMO Experiment, BrowserQuest

    Following the trend of making neat things in order to demonstrate the power of HTML5 (and also convince people to move away from Flash in favor of it), Mozilla and Little Workshop have teamed up and created a free open source HTML5 mini-MMO that runs in one page, BrowserQuest.

  7. NY Times, ProPublica Join Knight-Mozilla OpenNews, Dragged Into 21st Century

    It's no surprise that newspapers and other outlets of old-school journalism have struggled in the digital space. However, a collaboration between the Mozilla and the Knight Foundation called OpenNews has aimed to remedy that, by bringing developers and journalists together. Perhaps most importantly, it aims to bring the fruit of this work to the world. Now, the New York Times and other major news operations have joined the project, hoping to make their content even more relevant in the digital space.

  8. Biggest Names Online Take Out Full Page Ad in NYTimes Speaking Against SOPA

In the letter, Google, Facebook, Mozilla, Zynga, eBay, Twitter, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and AOL ask that their point of view be heard regarding the Protect IP and the Stop Online Piracy Act.

  9. First Firefox 4 Beta Now Available for Download

    Yesterday evening, Mozilla announced that Firefox 4 Beta 1 is now available for download. While this release is considered "stable and safe to use for daily web browsing," there's still a ways to go before a final release of Firefox 4.0: Every two to three weeks, there'll be a new beta version released incorporating the feedback from the last wave.

    What's new in Firefox 4?
