WebReview is a new extension for Firefox that attempts to make your start page smarter, and more suggestive based on past browsing habits.

Google released a new beta version of Chrome Tuesday, offering a better balance between software that's stable but out of date on the one hand and cutting-edge but crash-prone on the other.
The new version offers a number of new features, including zooming that increases or decreases the graphics as well as text; autofill to ease the chore of re-entering information in Web site forms; and new tab-dragging features that let you dock browser windows to the sides of the screen. The new beta version is essentially the same as Chrome 188.8.131.52 that was released last … Read more

When using predecessors, I have been annoyed chiefly with long periods of unresponsiveness, but I can hardly complain given that they've been only … Read more
