about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.
An update to Firefox for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android has been released and includes new features that make Web browsing easier, including Twitter search, a clean up of add-ons installed by third parties, improved 3D technology and more.
Mozilla has recently launched Popcorn 1.0. Popcorn allows web filmmakers to harness the web to expand their creations in new ways by pulling in real-time social media, news feeds, data visualizations, and other real-time web content directly into video playback. Take a guided tour or get more involved at mozillapopcorn.org.
The Mozillians team has landed a new “Groups” feature on mozillians.org. Mozillians can now add themselves and search for other Mozillians within groups/sub-communities such as “Quality Assurance” or “Firefox”. If you’re interested in contributing find out how to get involved.
