I'm Sticking With Mozilla

by

I'm a big Mozilla fan (as they're the only one of the big players still with a genuine, open view of the web) and am still clinging to the humble little fox as my browser of choice. So when new Moz things appear I get all excited - here are my latest five..

Command Line Interface

Take a look at this command line interface for browser manipulation, coming soon to Firefox.

iPad Browser

How about an iPad browser which genuinely tries to improve the tablet browsing experience? (Live demo in the video at the bottom of the article.)

Mozilla Thimble

This is great; a beginners' playground for learning HTML, CSS and JS that allows you to publish live when you're done.

Boot to Gecko

The Boot to Gecko project aims to make the open web the platform for mobile devices. Take a look at this demo too.

Developer Tools

Download Firefox Nightly to try out some of the coming features, such as developer tools with its Layout view and Responsive mode.


There's some really interesting stuff happening over in Mozilla land. I'm staying put.

    I've written quite a bit about browser testing solutions trying to help identify techniques and tools that make cross-browser development easier. My last article on the subject covered how to use BrowserStack to test any number of browsers all from one central tool; your own browser. I was on a Windows PC back then so testing multiple browsers was a bit easier and testing tools were mainly complementary to my work. Now that I'm on OS X, the need for tools to round out my testing strategies is even more important, specifically because of the lack of Internet Explorer on the OS. I'm a bit of a stickler for what I install on my computers and I prefer online tools when available. I'm also always on the hunt for new tools that make cross-browser testing easier and decided to give CrossBrowserTesting.com a run. I'll go over some of the key features of the service and how to leverage it to improve your testing capabilities.Read More…
