Firefox screen mirroring in the works: still an experiment

With the likes of Google's Chromecast selling of shelves for lack of a reason not to drop a few bucks on the concept, iterations of the idea like Mozilla's upcoming second-screen support for Firefox are popping up left and right. What we're seeing here is a very small and early version of what may be coming from Firefox web browsers in the future - the show you're seeing put on here comes from Mark Finkle of Mozilla, mirroring a Firefox web browser window on an Android device to a Roku on his large-screen TV.

Tor is a fork of Firefox - based in Firefox's code, recreated as a web browser here to allow entirely anonymous web browsing. According to reports, the malware in question exploits a bug present in Firefox 17 ESR, the same build on which Tor is based, allowing - through "Freedom Hosting" webpages specifically - a payload to be delivered which ultimately sends the location of the user to a 3rd party.

This message will self-destruct: OTR plugin brings Snapchat fuctionality to browsers

Like something out of an Inspector Gadget cartoon, a new plugin for browsers called OTR allows users to send messages to other users that will self-destruct a few seconds after they are read, (hopefully) disappearing forever. The plugin was launched today by Lamplighter Games, a company run by two brothers who wanted to bring Snapchat-like functionality to Web browsers. We've got a demo of it in action after the jump.

Fake Firefox spreads spyware as makers Mozilla retort

Mozilla has sent out a cease-and-desist letter to Gamma International, who has been disguising commercial malware as Mozilla's Firefox web browser.
