Just to play the total Devil's Advocate here: How did you think you were paying for using Facebook? That content you generated as a user stopped being yours the moment you generated it for Facebook. Your status updates are the quarters that go into the slot to make the machine go. That you can get that data back in *any* form is just Facebook being gracious.

Comment This is not a Mozilla Labs project (Score 1) 216

For what it's worth, the headline is inaccurate: This is not a Mozilla project, nor even a Mozilla Labs project. Chromeless is a Mozilla Labs project, on top of which Webian Shell is built. Webian Shell is a nifty looking thing, but it's not an official Mozilla Statement on the FUTURE OF APPLICATIONS and a CHALLENGE TO CHROMEOS or whatever crap is being assumed here. It's just some dude playing with a concept.


Firefox 4 Beta For Mobile Now Faster and Sleeker 70

An anonymous reader writes "Mozilla has released Beta 2 of Firefox 4 for Mobile. Some notable improvements over the initial beta release include 'reduced memory usage, improved text rendering and a 60% install size reduction on Android (from around 43 MB to 17 MB).' Mozilla also makes mention that 'actions like panning and zooming are faster and smoother, and page load times are reduced from our previous beta. On Android 2.2, we're now around 25% faster on the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark than the stock browser.' A future beta release will enable GL acceleration, which should further improve the performance of the browser."
