Firefox has a built-in phishing filter that checks whether a site is blacklisted, and warns the user of the potential fraud and information theft a phishing site could do. It uses Google’s database or a downloaded list of sites according to the user’s preference. But there are some talks about a certain exploit to Firefox’s phishing protection/filter system.
I’ve installed the new Firefox 3 Beta 1 on my Windows XP system back home. At first sight, nothing is so much noticeable about the new version. Only the bookmark button on the location bar is visibly different. But I’d share to you some features I’ve tried and liked, hoping you’d like them, too.
I was trying to check the University calendar on the UST Web site for the preliminary examinations schedule when I noticed the redesign and restructure planned for it has already been implemented. Excitedly, I saw some of the things I’ve dreamt of doing for it accomplished on the reboot.
IMO, there are two ways to hinder the advancement of Web standards:
- To continue legacy practices, holding back on new, better ones; and
- To keep inconsistencies between Web developers and designers, and user agent, tool and software developers.
Last time when I was reviewing new releases of Windows Web browsers, I was hoping I could get my hands on a Mac—or at least the money to buy one—so I could review Safari as well. But, I donâ€™t think I would be drooling for it any sooner.
