Google Tells Users To Use Outdated Browsers

Google told Chrome users earlier in the week to switch to outdated versions of Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox if they want to access Gmail when they are not connected to the web. On Tuesday, Google dropped offline support for Chrome, IE9, Firefox 4, Safari, and Opera. What’s the big reason? Google’s conversion to HTML5 this summer.

Google currently uses an old plug-in called Gears and the company feels it is time to keep up with technology (especially considering they are a seen as a founding father of technology). The current version of Chrome 11 is considered stable and doesn’t run Gmail in offline mode either.

Turn Your Older Powerbook Into A HTML5 Machine

If you are like many Mac owners that have older Powerbooks that run on PPC (Power PC) architecture, you’ve probably noticed that your laptop isn’t what it used to be for handling harder applications. What I mean is, that although your powerbook can still work pretty well for emailing and web browsing, it has a hard time handling HTML5 and CSS3 while many browsers have left PPC architecture behind. Even Mozilla’s Firefox 4 has dropped support for the PPC architecture.

If you haven’t already replaced your older computer, you might not have to. Now there’s a program called TenFourFox that takes Firefox 4 and works with OS X 10.4 and OS X 10.5.

The new 5HTML web application was created to bring the Chrome web Tweetdeck app to other web platforms. The application is built on the same core as Chrome Tweetdeck, on the same user interface, and contains many of the same features.

Mozilla Firefox 4 For Android

Mozilla has finally released their Firefox4 build for Android, which is now available on the Android market. The company claims that it is three times faster than what you’d normally use on an Android phone, the stock browser. Mozilla also boasts about their HTML5 support, one of many new features offered in the mobile browser. The mobile browser also uses tabbed browsing, much like the desktop version, bookmarks, add-ons, and Firefox Sync which enables users to access browser features from other devices. The web browser also runs on Maemo. Here’s their list of improvements that come with Android’s Firefox 4:

Google Chrome’s New HTML5 Speech Input

Google adds yet another feature to their already popular Chrome web browser. Google mentioned that they would be updating their beta channel by bringing HTML5 speech input API, developed with the HTML Speech Incubator Group.

Google emphasizes this API (Application Programming Interface), because developers can now give apps the ability to transcribe voice to text. All it will take is a simple click of the mouse and speak into your computer’s microphone.

The company also mentioned that the recorded speech will be sent to transcription servers once…

Firefox 4 Release, No More Crashes?
