Firefox Merging Desktop And Mobile Experience Into One

I think it’s pretty obvious by now that I’m at best a Firefox apologist, and at worst a rabid fan of the browser. That doesn’t mean that I’m unwilling to call out Mozilla and the Firefox team for some of their dumb decisions.

Mozilla Inspired To Rethink How We Create

I love inspirational speakers. They have a certain air about them, like they know what they’re talking about. While their job is to inspire people to do great things, it’s even better when their actions, not their words, inspire us to even greater lengths. The fine folks at Mozilla have been inspired by such a man. They recently uploaded a …

Easily Port C++ To HTML5/JavaScript With Emscripten

Mozilla turned some heads last week when they announced BrowserQuest, an HTML5 powered MMO that runs in any compatible browser. That was just the beginning of the potential for HTML5 to power games and other applications in-browser. Of course, BrowserQuest was built from the ground up for HTML5.
