Mozilla Makes Plans for Firefox 5

Scott Gilbertson writes about Mozilla’s Firefox 5 ahead of the company’s Firefox 4 release.

“Firefox 4 was originally scheduled for release in November of last year, but bugs and last minute features have seen the next version of Firefox delayed several months. However, Firefox 4 has finally entered the home stretch and should be available in release candidate form on February 25, with the final release a few weeks after that. Never one to rest, Mozilla has already set its sights on Firefox 5. The company is hoping to avoid the delays that plagued Firefox 4 by moving future releases to a rolling update schedule, which resembles Google’s approach for its Chrome Web browser. Mozilla’s goal is to deliver a total of four major releases in 2011, pushing Firefox to version 7 by the end of the year. Among the priorities for Firefox 5 are 64 bit support on Windows, a revamped Account Manager and the usual performance and speed improvements.”

LG Launches World’s First 3D Smartphone, Verdict: Not Bad

Sarah Perez writes about LG’s first 3D smartphone product.

“At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, LG launched the first 3D smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D. With its dual camera system, the phone doesn’t just support 3D video playback – it records in 3D too. Forget Avatar – you can now film baby’s first steps in 3D! And thanks to a partnership with YouTube, those 3D home movies can be posted directly to YouTube where they can be viewed in 3D right from your handset itself. Or, via an HDMI connection, they can be streamed to any 3D TV, too.”
