UK Government says “No Evidence” IE is Less Secure

Thu, 28 Jan 2010 04:00:09 +0000

A couple days ago I had mentioned that Lord Avebury had asked the UK Government about their usage of IE.

Enterprise Deployment of Firefox

Wed, 17 Dec 2008 09:23:46 +0000

I am responsible for overseeing the IT infrastructure of an office with about 40 Windows-based computers. We always keep the OS and relevant software patched, though sometimes even keeping Windows/Office/IE patched to the most current level is not enough.

Tue, 01 Jul 2008 14:13:14 +0000

I just noticed that Google is munging search result URIs. For example, if you run a search on “mozilla”, the first result is http://www.mozilla.org/.

Fri, 20 Jun 2008 15:38:50 +0000

I tried to log into my Hotmail account today with Firefox 3.0, and I got the following error: Clearing the cookies and cache doesn’t help. When I log in via IE7, it works fine. This problem started to happen after the upgrade to Firefox 3.

After a lot of hard work by the Mozilla team and tons of volunteers, Firefox 3.0 has been released. Help set the Guinness World Records for downloads by downloading today. Personally, my favourite new feature is the AwesomeBar. What’s yours?

Sun, 08 Jun 2008 02:38:46 +0000

I’ve been having a couple of issues recently with a Google Groups hosted list that I manage, for which no solutions seem to be available.
