Ah Mozilla is buzzing (bzzz!) all over the World Wide Web. More news from yours truly, this time on some tidbits that I found to be useful to the common Mozilla Suite/Firefox/Thunderbird user.
So, in no particular order:
- Pavel Cvrcek has released Mozilla Backup 1.2.2. This release "only adds support for Mozilla Firefox 0.8 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5". If you haven't heard of Mozilla Backup before, you would be pleased to find it a spiffy tool for backing up and restoring Mozilla profiles (including Firefox and Thunderbird). It works very well from my own experience with it. Unfortunately, it's only available on Windows. (Reported by MozillaZine)
- Patrick Ryan posted in a comment to The Burning Edge to point out the pryan.org Mozilla BitTorrent tracker, which he kindly set up. Patrick Ryan is the guy who provides free hosting space for unofficial builds. The unofficial Firefox builds are at http://pryan.org/firefox/, and the unofficial Thunderbird builds are at http://pryan.org/thunderbird/. As always, the best place to keep up to date with the unofficial builds are The Burning Edge, the MozillaZine Firefox builds forum, and the MozillaZine Thunderbird builds forum.
- And finally, users of Tabbrowser Extensions (TBE) for Firefox would be glad to know that Piro Date (the author of TBE) has updated it the extension so that it works with Firefox 0.8. See his post in his forum. I'm happy to report that it seems noticeably faster as well - TBE used to slow down Firefox a lot.
