Bisher besteht das Einkommen von Firefox-Hersteller Mozilla hauptsächlich aus Verträgen mit Suchmaschinenanbietern und das Unternehmen sucht bereits seit einigen Jahren nach möglichen Alternativen. Das läuft offenbar anders als erhofft, weshalb das Unternehmen nun wohl auch etwa 70 seiner rund 1.000 Angestellten entlassen hat, also 7 Prozent aller Angestellten. Das berichtet unter anderem das Magazin Techcrunch.
Um dies zu erreichen, hat Mozilla nun also etwa 70 seiner Angestellten aus verschiedenen Bereichen entlassen. Dazu gehören offenbar vor allem Teile der QA-Abteilung, aber auch weitere Entwickler aus anderen Bereichen. Baker bezeichnet dies in einer öffentlichen Stellungnahme im Blog des Unternehmens als "schwierige Entscheidung".

Klingt so typisch. QA Leute des Kernprodukts entlassen.
Leute, die mit fragwürdigen Produkt- und Politikideen Geld verbrennen, bleiben.

Ich sag mal nein, denn hier gibt es ein größeres Problem:
Der neue Edge ist ein Win32 Programm und die Xbox kann nur UWP.

Oder die neue Box bekommt das gleiche OS, dann lohnt sich der Umbau eher.

Frage ist dann natürlich wird das UWP Ding abgesägt und der Browser Support geht flöten?
Keine Lust groß die Xbox aus dem Wohnzimmer durch die alte PS4 zu ersetzen.

??

Ist doch besser als der verschlossene App-Mist.

UWP ist quasi tot :D. Selbst MS bringt da kaum noch was. Nur die verkackten Settings in W10 werden wohl erhalten bleiben :(.

Einzig für die Xbox ist das blöd, schließlich laufen dort nur solche Programme.
Wenn aber keiner mehr solche Programme entwickelt, macht der Support im nächsten Xbox OS auch nicht mehr viel Sinn. Bin gespannt was sie sich da einfallen lassen.

@Byakuya
Der PS4 Browser war bei meinen letzten Versuchen Videostreams abzuspielen leider deutlich schlechter als der Xbox Edge. Wird evtl. auch schon länger nicht mehr gepflegt, bei der Webkitversionierung fehlt mir der Überblick.

Dann schreibst du wohl keine Windowsprogramme ;).

Die Win32 API gibt es auch in 64Bit.
Wenn von einem Win32 Programm die Rede ist, sagt das nichts darüber ob 32 oder 64Bit.

Manche benutzen zur expliziten Unterscheidung "Win64", aber eigentlich ist es immer noch die Win32 Plattform.

Ich schreibe ja nur TypeScript, aber es wird JavaScript draus gemacht zur Ausführung. Debuggen kann man trotzdem weiter TypeScript. Aber auch JavaScript entwickelt sich weiter, übernimmt viele Konzepte von TypeScript und anderen modernen Sprachen. ;)

Mangels Kompetenzen in der Frontend Entwicklung im Team bin ich auch derzeit zu 100% damit beschäftigt. Aber wenn ich Backend mache, dann zwar im Java Umfeld, bloß stark bevorzugt eben auch hier die kompatiblen Sprachen Kotlin und Groovy. Bloß im aktuellen Projekt hat der Kunde auf Java bestanden. Hier gilt zwar auch, Java entwickelt sich weiter, aber weniger schnell, insbesondere weil man aus Gründen der IT-Vertrottelung von Konzernen auf ältere Versionen festgenagelt wird...

Die neuen Eigentümer von Opera machen zahlreiche dubiose Geschäfte:
Summary (NASDAQ: OPRA)
  • Opera went public in mid-2018 based largely on prospects for its core browser business. Now, its browser market share is declining rapidly, down ~30% since its IPO.
  • Browser gross margins have collapsed by 22.6% in just one year. Opera has swung to negative $12 million in LTM operating cash flow, compared to positive cash flow of $32 million for the comparable 2018 period.
  • Opera was purchased by a China-based investor group prior to its IPO. The group’s largest investor and current Opera Chairman/CEO was recently involved in a Chinese lending business that listed in the U.S. and saw its shares plunge more than 80% in just 2 years amid allegations of fraud and illegal lending practices.
  • Post IPO, Opera has now also made a similar and dramatic pivot into predatory short-term loans in Africa and India, deploying deceptive ‘bait and switch’ tactics to lure in borrowers and charging egregious interest rates ranging from ~365-876%.
  • Most of Opera’s lending business is operated through apps offered on Google’s Play Store. In August, Google tightened rules to curtail predatory lending and, as a result, Opera’s apps are now in black and white violation of numerous Google rules.
  • Given that the vast majority of Opera’s loans are disbursed through Android apps, we think this entire line of business is at risk of disappearing or being severely curtailed when Google notices.
  • Instead of disclosing to investors that its “high-growth” microfinance segment could be imperiled by these new rules, Opera instead immediately raised $82 million in a secondary offering without disclosing Google’s changes to investors.
  • Opera’s short-term loan business now accounts for over 42% of the company’s revenue and is responsible for eye-popping top line “growth”. Meanwhile, the segment experienced massive defaults (~50% of lending revenue) and company-wide cash flow has worsened.
  • Post IPO, Opera promptly directed ~$40 million of cash into businesses owned by its Chairman, including $30 million into a karaoke app, and $9.5 million into an entity used to acquire a business that Opera had already operated and funded, via a questionable transaction.
  • We think Opera collapses on its own worsening financials, with that timeline accelerating significantly if Google bans its lending apps or if its Chairman/CEO continues to draw cash out of the business through questionable related-party deals.

Keine guten Aussichten.

SeaMonkey 2.53 wurde jetzt in den Beta-Status gehoben.
SeaMonkey 2.53.1 Beta 1 released

SeaMonkey 2.53.1 Beta 1 is now available for free download on the SeaMonkey website.

2.53.1 is our biggest release in a few years and incorporates many changes and fixes from the underlying platform code. Before installing it make a full backup of your profile and thoroughly read and follow the Release Notes. We encourage testers to get involved in discussing and reporting problems as well as further improving the product.
The Mozilla backend code SeaMonkey is based on, now usually incorporates breaking changes in every release. This is especially true for the Mozilla Gecko add-ons code and the JavaScript interpreter. Consequently, some older extensions may no longer function properly. If you experience any problems please refer to the troubleshooting section first. Especially try to disable extensions first and check if this makes a difference.
Due to changes in the user profile, if you have set a master password, you will have to remove it before upgrading to SeaMonkey 2.53.1 Beta 1. After a successful upgrade, don't forget to manually remove the files key3.db and cert8.db in your profile afterwards, as they include credentials and passwords no longer protected by a master password. You can find the path to your profile folder entering the special about:support URL in a SeaMonkey browser window.
You can remove you master password by providing an empty password in the "Change Master Password" dialog. Do not use the "Reset Password" function. You will lose all stored passwords this way.
SeaMonkey 2.53.1 Beta 1 contains (among other changes) the following major changes relative to SeaMonkey 2.49.5:

  • The Bookmarks Manager has switched its name to Library, and now also includes the History list. When invoking History, the Library will be shown with the History list selected. The extensive modifications were needed because of Mozilla Gecko platform API changes.
  • Download Manager has been migrated to a new API. Although it looks pretty much the same as before, the search option is missing and some other minor details work differently. The previous downloads history is removed during the upgrade.
  • Added Layout panel to CSS Grid tools.
  • TLS 1.3 is the default version now.
SeaMonkey 2.53.1 Beta 1 uses the same backend as Firefox and contains the relevant Firefox 60.3 security fixes.

SeaMonkey 2.53.1 Beta 1 shares most parts of the mail and news code with Thunderbird. Please read the Thunderbird 60.0 release notes for specific changes and security fixes in this release.

Additional important security fixes up to Current Firefox 72 and a few enhancements have been backported. We will continue to enhance SeaMonkey security in subsequent 2.53 beta and release versions as fast as we are able to.

Ich glaube hab es hier noch nicht geschrieben:
MozillaZine soll eingestellt werden - das war seit mehr als 20 Jahren die große Wissensbasis um Mozilla-Software ~sad~

::cry::::cry::::cry::


Allein http://kb.mozillazine.org/Knowledge_Base war immer extrem wertvoll. Im Gegensatz zur offiziellen Dokumentation von Mozilla selbst.

The End
Well, the time has come unfortunately. I unfortunately no longer have time to keep the site running (as you may have noticed). I'll be moving the site into readonly mode, to prepare to archive it in the next little while, starting with the KB, then the Forums. It's been a pleasure serving you for the last 21 years, but all good things must come to an end. Special thanks to the moderators who have hung on for so long, and everyone else who continues to post and chat.
