Firefox 11
In what’s been an almost monthly event now since August last year, Mozilla team have released another major increment to the version number of their Firefox web browser! Firefox 11 is now available for download, and yet again, we’re bringing you this news before Mozilla have even update the Release Notes for Firefox 11!

Mozilla have also confirmed this past week that development work has now also begun on a version of Firefox specifically for the new “Metro” interface of Windows 8.

One interesting point that Mozilla programmer Brian Bondy notes about this version of Firefox for the Windows 8 Metro interface, is that Microsoft have imposed restrictions meaning that the “Metro” version of Firefox will only work if Firefox has been selected as the default web browser within Windows 8!

Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 We’ll be keeping a close eye on Windows 8 as it draws ever closer to a full release later this year (It’s currently in “Beta” – or as Microsoft are now calling it “Consumer Preview”). We have already tested our online room scheduling software, MIDAS, on Windows 8 Consumer Preview in the brand new Internet Explorer 10 (IE10 is not currently available for earlier versions of Windows), and can confirm that the latest version of MIDAS is fully compatible with this new release of Internet Explorer!
