Firefox Quantum Beats Google Chrome Browser in Speed Test

Browsers are funny things. We use them every day, but most people don’t ever really think about switching to a new one. You have multiple options as of right now – Chrome, Firefox, Brave,  Safari and  UC Browser – but most people either use Chrome, Safari or IE.
                                            firefox quantum beats google chrome in speed test
Why? Simple: Chrome ships aboard Android phones, the most used phones on the planet, Safari does the same thing on iPhone and Macs, and IE, well… IE is default on Windows and there’s a lot of Windows PCs out there.

Last fall, Mozilla announced something special: an overhaul of the Firefox browser designed for multi-core, modern PCs. Now it’s here in beta form, under its new name: Firefox Quantum. And this isn’t your average browser; the beta version which is now available is twice as fast as the current Firefox browser and uses 33% less energy than Google’s Chrome.

“Firefox has historically run mostly on just one CPU core, but Firefox Quantum takes advantage of multiple CPU cores in today’s desktop and mobile devices much more effectively,” Mozilla explains on its blog. “This improved utilization of your computer’s hardware makes Firefox Quantum dramatically faster.”

The look and feel of the browser has also been updated. Called Photon, the new UX is clean and simple to interact with. Combine this with the speed and efficiency improvements and Firefox could well be making a lot of new friends in 2017/18.
           
"We’re confident that with Photon," Mozilla added, "Firefox Quantum users will be impressed by the modern new design that puts their needs first. Photon doesn’t just look good, it’s also smarter. If you’re using Photon on a Windows PC with a touch display, the menus change size based on whether you click with a mouse or touch with a finger.”

The new design also features many logical changes; things like square tabs, smooth animations, and a Library, which provides quick access to your saved stuff: bookmarks, Pocket, history, downloads, tabs, and screenshots.

Mozilla acquired Pocket last year, so it’s inclusion natively is no surprise and how it is integrated is really very smart, adding yet another big USP to Firefox Quantum.

Firefox Quantum is available now in beta and it will also work on Android and iOS, as well as desktop PCs and Macs. If you’d prefer to wait for the finished version, it will appear on November 14, for free, of course. But if you’re interested in testing the beta now you can do so HERE.

Apple iPhone X: Full specifications revealed!

  • Renowned leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer shared the information on Twitter today
  • It shows the 10th anniversary device will feature a 2,715 mAh capacity battery
  • The extra capacity may be needed to power the new Face ID camera system
  • The document also appears to confirm 3GB of RAM and a 2.4GHz CPU chip
                                                iphone x leaked specifications

The final missing specs omitted from the fanfare launch of Apple's iPhone X may inadvertently have been leaked, thanks to a Chinese bureaucratic document.
Official paperwork appears to reveal the battery life, ram and CPU speed of the upcoming flagship handset.
The leaks suggests the iPhone X will come with a 2,715mAh battery and 3GB of RAM.
This is compared to a 1,821mAh battery capacity for the iPhone 8, and a 2,675mAh cell for the iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple has been less than forthcoming in revealing the specifics of the new device's hardware, so the documents offer tantalising clues for diehard fans.
                                             apple iphone x leak
The details were revealed in an electronic filing to the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (TENAA).
The extra battery capacity is believed to be designed to power the new handset's TrueDepth depth-sensing camera, which enables the new Face ID facial recognition system, and dual camera set up.
During the unveiling earlier this month in California, Apple said the X’s battery life would last up to two hours longer than its previous models.
The TENAA document also seems to confirm the RAM capacity for the iPhone X as 3GB, slightly more than the iPhone 8's reported 2GB.
The device's  A11 Bionic CPU chip is also clocked at 2.4GHz, according to reports in Apple Insider.
Renowned leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer shared the information with the tech community through a tweet posted at 8.12 am BST (3.12 am ET) this morning.
Using his @onleaks handle, he said: 'For those who cares about #2, Tenaa just confirmed #iPhoneX comes with 3GB of RAM, reveals 2716mAh battery.'
Following months of anticipation, Apple finally unveiled its souped-up 'anniversary' phone, the iPhone X, on September 12.
The $999 (£999 in the UK) iPhone X features an edge-to-edge display with richer colours, and facial recognition software called Face ID that allows users to unlock the phone without the need for a fingerprint reader or physical home button.

China bans WhatsApp ahead of major Communist Party meeting next month

Chinese authorities appear to have severely disrupted the WhatsApp messaging app in the latest step to tighten censorship as they prepare for a major Communist Party congress next month.
                                         whatsapp ban china
Users in China have reported widespread disruptions in recent days to the Facebook-owned service, which previously malfunctioned in the country over the summer.

Experts said the problems began on Sunday, but text messaging, voice calls and video calls appeared to be working again today, though voice messages and photos were not going through.

WhatsApp provides message encryption technology that likely does not please Chinese authorities, which closely monitor and restrict cyberspace through their "Great Firewall".

Many Chinese activists favour WhatsApp over local messaging apps because of its end-to-end encryption function.

China has strenghtened online policing this year, enacting new rules that require tech companies to store user data inside the country as well as imposing restrictions on what is permissible content.

Chinese cyberspace regulators said yesterday they slapped "maximum" fines on major Chinese tech firms Baidu and Tencent for allowing the publication of pornographic, violent and other sorts of banned material on their social media platforms. The amount of the fines was not disclosed.

Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and a slew of foreign media have been blocked for years.

The WhatsApp troubles emerged ahead of the Communist Party congress on October 18, when President Xi Jinping is expected to be given a second five-year term as the party's general secretary.

"It smells like Party congress pre-emptive blocking," said Jason Ng, who researches China's internet at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto.

China usually steps up surveillance around major events, Ng said.

While the WeChat messaging app owned by China's Tencent company is more widely used in the country, many WhatsApp users complained about the disruptions.

"As we get closer to the Party congress, I think authorities will use more extreme censorship measures. The public knows that WeChat isn't safe," prominent Beijing-based activist Hu Jia told AFP.

"Me and other dissidents use WhatsApp to communicate 70 per cent of the time. For the few days WhatsApp was completely inaccessible, we didn't talk at all," Hu said.

Earlier this month, WeChat informed its users in a new privacy policy that it would "retain, preserve or disclose" users' data to "comply with applicable laws or regulations" -- confirming long-held public assumptions about the company's practises.

Other users in China noted that the WhatsApp ban would make it difficult to work with clients abroad.

"Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Viber were blocked before. Now even WhatsApp is blocked? Without good messaging tools, it will reduce the efficiency of the foreign trade industry," wrote one person on Weibo, China's Twitter-like social media website.

"I can live without the others (applications), but blocking WhatsApp is driving me crazy," said another.

WhatsApp declined to comment

The Open Observatory of Network Interference, a global censorship detection group, said China started blocking WhatsApp on Sunday.

To operate in China, some foreign tech companies have complied with local regulations. But others such as Google have chosen to pull out totaly from mainland China.

In July, Apple removed software allowing internet users to skirt China's "Great Firewall" from its app store in the country, drawing criticism that it was bowing to Beijing's ever-growing web censorship.

Such software, called virtual private networks (VPN), allow people in China to access any website, even those that are blocked.

Beijing mandated in January that all developers must obtain government licences to offer VPNs and there has been concern that it might ban them outright.

How to make Free video calls on Truecaller App

There seem to be a lot of juicy additions to Truecaller App lately. A few weeks back, I created a post on how you can send free flash messages on the Truecaller App
                        video-calls-truecaller-google-duo  
A few months back, an announcement was made by Truecaller on the addition of video calls from Google Duo.  At the time, the feature was promised "in the coming months" and it looks like those months have elapsed as the latest Truecaller update says the option is now available.
To use this feature, Both users need to have the Google Duo app installed, so this isn't some magical built-in Duo tech but it's more like a quick shortcut to launch a video call without leaving the Truecaller app. Video calls can be started from your contact's details page, the chat screen (if you're talking to them through Truecaller), and the missed call notification. The video calls will also integrate with Truecaller's call log. The service appears to be easy to disable, so you'll be able to enable or disable Duo's integration as you wish.

Read: Sliide Airtime gives free airtime for calls and internet access
The newest version of TrueCaller should be rolling out now to users on the Play Store, but it could be a while before it reaches everyone. You can give it a try for free.
Now make video calls from Truecaller using Google Duo. Video call all your friends with just one tap!
Other updates:
- Reduced memory usage and app size
- SIM indicator added to caller ID
- Added option to paste a number into dial-pad
- Fixes for right-to-left languages

Google Play To Demote Low Quality Apps From it's Store

Aiming to provide the best apps to its users, Google announced its decision to demote bad apps in its search rankings by including app quality signals in its ranking algorithms. This is a very welcome development by google, as this will really help in the display and recommendation of productive and useful Apps to its users. In other words, when a user searched for an app on Play Store, those apps with a lot of negative reviews or a history of bad performance will not feature on the list, which will further result in a drop in its ratings.
                            Google Play To Demote Low Quality Apps
The move comes as part of Google's initiative to promote high-quality apps on its portal, according to The Verge. Earlier, the tech giant announced that faulty apps will be identified using Machine Learning technique, apart from creating a program called 'Android Excellence', which will single out the apps that function well.
Google has tweaked the ranking algorithms even further to ensure bad apps are ranked so low as into oblivion. This then means developers now have to make sure their apps are stable (do not crash), perform well and are consistent. So  local developers better take notice and put in good work accordingly.
Read: Google Play Store not working? Fix it here!
As the general impression goes, apps on the iOS platform function better than those on Android. To counter this, Google, using its Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning is looking to persuade developers to enable apps with smooth functioning. However, it is unclear whether developers will be notified of the downfall in its ranking.

Youtube Announces Messaging Service: Chat and Share Videos in the App

YouTube is the second-most visited website in the world, as of December 2016; SimilarWeb also lists YouTube as the top TV and video website globally, attracting more than 15 billion visitors per month. 
                                  youtube-messenger  It has announced that it is now rolling out its in-app direct messaging feature worldwide. This allows users to share videos and chat without leaving the YouTube app for Android and iOS devices.
Before this update was rolled out, users would have to send YouTube videos to friends by copying links to other messaging apps. Copying and pasting links can be quite tedious at times, and YouTube appears to be fixing that problem with this new set of features.
Read: WhatsApp Will Soon Support YouTube Videos Within The App “Starting today, you can share videos with your friends and family directly on YouTube,” the company said on its blog yesterday. “Not only can you share and receive videos in the app, you can also chat about them right on YouTube, reply with another video, invite others to the conversation, and more. We think it’ll make sharing easier, faster and more fun on your phone.”

This new feature is only available on the iOS and Android YouTube apps and can’t be accessed on the desktop site. 
                         
Sending a direct message is the same as sharing videos. Users will only have to tap on the “Share” button below a video. This will bring up list of suggested contacts to share the video with. Contacts that appear on this list are people that the user has recently chatted with.

Interestingly, users will not only be able to send a video to one person, but also to several people to start a group chat. A YouTube group chat can support up to 30 people. Users also have the option to include a message alongside the video by simply typing on the text box beneath the suggested contacts list. Existing conversations on YouTube can be accessed in a new tab labeled as “Shared.”
YouTube’s aim here appears to be engaging more users with the YouTube app while also making sure that they’re watching more videos. Having a built-in chat feature would also mean that YouTube is yet another messaging service that could challenge other platforms.

The YouTube app's messaging/video sharing feature has been in testing since last year. The beta version of this was then rolled out earlier this year in January, but it was only made available to users in Canada at the time, according to Digital Trends.

“We’ve been experimenting with a better way to share videos on YouTube since last year,” YouTube said. “Thanks to all your feedback, we made some improvements and are now ready to roll out this new sharing feature to all users globally.”
