    Mozilla recently decided to add DRM in Firefox even if Mozilla hates it. Almost all video streaming websites use some kind of DRM and as Microsoft, Apple and Google has already implemented DRM in their browsers, Mozilla thinks not adding the DRM in Firefox would make it useless as a product as the user will have to switch to other browser everytime a user visits a website with DRM.I am not going to either defend Mozilla on the decision of adding DRM in Firefox or write against it, they did what they had to do. In the end its...

    Some Firefox users, cranky about the overhaul of the browser's user interface, have scrambled to find ways to make the latest version look more like older editions. Two weeks ago, Mozilla launched Firefox 29, the first production-grade version that sported the new "Australis" UI. The visual redesign, the most dramatic for Firefox since March 2011, was Mozilla's attempt to both streamline the browser's look and feel and standardize it across all platforms, from desktop to mobile. Many of Australis' visual changes were subtle, such as more rounded tabs, inactive tabs that faded deeper into the background and a revamped customization...

    Earlier today, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced sanctions against Clippers owner Donald Sterling. These sanctions came down after an audio recording came to light with Sterling making racist comments in a private conversation. In the aftermath of public outrage, it also came to light that Sterling has a history of racist behavior, including discriminatory housing practices in properties that he owns. Commissioner Silver announced that Sterling is banned from the NBA, fined $2.5 million, and under pressure to relinquish his ownership. These are hefty sanctions. And I think they are justified in light of the evidence that Sterling has...

Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.  He was referring to homosexual activists’ constant invocation of...

The #OpenZilla campaign seeks to ensure the software company expresses inclusiveness and respect toward its religious employees who may oppose same-sex marriage. Faith Driven Consumer, a group that seeks to connect Christian consumers with faith-compatible companies, has requested the Silicon Valley-based software company provide clarification on its diversity policy to ensure employees will not be discriminated against for their religious beliefs.

    Just ten days after becoming CEO of web company Mozilla, Brendan Eich resigned after drawing the ire of LGBT advocates. In 2008, Eich donated money to the Proposition 8 campaign, an effort around legislation to make same-sex marriage illegal in California. When he was announced as the new Mozilla head, members of the LGBT community and even Mozilla employees expressed their dissatisfaction through social media and called for Eich’s resignation. Many have since spoken out against the backlash calling it unfair. On Monday’s “NewsOne Now,” Roland Martin was joined by a panel of guests to discuss the news, whether the...

    And not just gay marriage. The congressman, Chris Cannon, also opposed adoptions by gay couples and laws prohibiting discrimination in hiring gays. Sam Yagan’s donation, in other words, was more of a multi-spectrum anti-gay contribution than Brendan Eich’s $1,000 gift to support Prop 8 and yet he took it upon himself to be the tip of the spear in the “Eich must go” movement. Says Rick Moran of Yagan’s past, “The gay mafia is never around when you need them.” The Daily Caller actually had this five days ago but it’s breaking big today because of Mother Jones.

    This is highly speculative, but considering that some people are moving from Firefox to Chrome, it may be worth thinking about. Over the years, Mozilla’s reliance on Google has continued to grow. Indeed, in its report on Brendan Eich’s promotion to CEO of Mozilla, the WSJ noted that “Google accounted for nearly 90% of Mozilla’s $311 million in revenue.”So, with its Sugar Daddy having also gone on record as being virulently opposed to Proposition 8, to think that that Google’s support didn’t enter into discussions of whether Prop 8 backer Eich should stay or go seems, well, pretty much unthinkable.“It...

    I've read all threads about Mozilla melt down and all suggestions to replace Firefox but everybody seems to have a different opinion. So what is the best alternative to Firefox? Hopefully some of you guys will agree on one browser. I switched to Opera and I like it but just want to make sure. What about Seamonkey? Security etc..? Thank you for your time :-)
  • Ditch Firefox and go to any other browser.

    As long as Firefox/Mozilla is willing to can their conservative CEO...shouldn't we cast our vote by canning Firefox/Mozilla.

    I was wondering which software companies and developers were pushing for the CEO' s scalp. I know Rarebit is one, but I do not use dating websites. I have already deleted Firefox and Thuderbird, but I want to get rid of any software from the petty tyrants that are on a jihad to enforce there point of view. If we do not stop this in the bud what's next? If you agree pro-life, a small government supporter, conservative or libertarian, support Israel, etc do you lose your job or have to wear some other scarlet letter? Some both here and...

    Vice President Joe Biden has never lacked for passion. And his occasional failure to restrain his enthusiasm has sometimes gotten him in trouble. But his over-the-top rhetoric was right on point when he gave the keynote address Saturday evening at the Human Rights Campaign’s gala in downtown Los Angeles. Biden told a story I had never heard, about the first time he saw two men kissing (at minute 14 of the video above). He was in junior high, and his father was driving him to apply for a lifeguard job. “We stopped at a red light and I looked over...
  • Mozilla registers swell of negative feedback following Eich ouster

    Mozilla, the company that operates the web browser Firefox, experienced its highest level of negative customer feedback the day after its embattled co-founder Brendan Eich resigned as CEO after gay rights activists objected to his appointment. On Thursday, Mozilla forced Eich to resign just two weeks after hiring him. At issue was a $1,000 donation Eich gave in 2008 in support of California’s Proposition 8, a successful ballot initiative which banned gay marriage. The decision to remove the man who invented the web scripting language JavaScipt did not sit well with many customers — many of them pelted Mozilla’s website...
  • You Can’t Spell “Progressive” without an “S.S.”

    Sinclair Lewis was wrong—when fascism came to America, it was actually wrapped in a rainbow flag and wearing an ascot. How else can one describe the ongoing left-wing commitment to the stamping out of free speech, whenever that speech contradicts the gay agenda, as well as other parts of the “progressive” platform? With the resignation of newly minted Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, the “progressive” Left, especially its social wing, has once again shown itself to be the enforcers a political correctness in speech and thought that ought to be chilling to any person who actually cares about individual liberty. It’s...

    Are you now or have you ever been against gay marriage? Shoot one Brendan Eich, teach 1,000: Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves. We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better. Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this...
