Pengembangan Firefox OS untuk smartphone dihentikan

Mozilla secara resmi mengumumkan kalau Firefox OS untuk smartphone telah dihentikan pengembangannya. Mozilla juga telah berhenti menjual perangkat Firefox OS.

Dikutip dari TechCrunch:

Firefox OS proved the flexibility of the Web, scaling from low-end smartphones all the way up to HD TVs. However, we weren’t able to offer the best user experience possible and so we will stop offering Firefox OS smartphones through carrier channels.

Go go go Ubuntu Touch!

Akhirnya stiker gratis dari Mozilla ini sampai ke rumah. Saking lamanya, saya sampai lupa kapan saya ikutan kuis seperti ini.

Walaupun senang dapat stiker, saya jadi sedikit tidak enak, soalnya stiker yang cuma satu lembar ini dikirim jauh-jauh dari Mountain View (California) ke Makassar 🙁 Kira-kira ongkos kirimnya berapa ya?

“Sad day for the Web”

The news about Opera switching to Webkit is disappointing. It’s a sad day for the Web, since I thought highly of their Presto engine and their Web standards work. Their impact on Web standards will be dramatically reduced, especially where they want to do something differently to Apple and Google.

Why other browsers have “Mozilla” in the User Agent

Inilah sejarahnya mengapa di setiap browser punya User Agent yang ada “Mozilla”-nya:

And then Google built Chrome, and Chrome used Webkit, and it was like Safari, and wanted pages built for Safari, and so pretended to be Safari. And thus Chrome used WebKit, and pretended to be Safari, and WebKit pretended to be KHTML, and KHTML pretended to be Gecko, and all browsers pretended to be Mozilla, and Chrome called itself Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/0.2.149.27 Safari/525.13, and the user agent string was a complete mess, and near useless, and everyone pretended to be everyone else, and confusion abounded.
