Intense browser war is among the competitors as all of them are trying to find innovative ideas which will inspire users to go for their version.Browser developer Mozilla, which rose from ashes of Netscape, will release next month Firefox 3.0 that could change the way people organize and find sites they most frequently visit. Sources said analysts and industry players think the browser will soon become more valuable and strategically important and task like e-mail and word processing now migrating from the PC to the Internet.Firefox 3.0 runs more than twice as fast as the previous version while using less memory, Mozilla is quoted as saying by the daily.
The browser will maintain three months of a user’s browsing history very smartly and will try to predict also what site he or she may want to visit. Typing the word “tennis” into the browser, for example, quickly generates a list of all the sites visited with “tennis” in the name or description, the daily said. The browser will not only personalize the browser for an individual user but it could also replace the need for people to maintain long and messy lists of bookmarks.
Firefox has named this new tool the “awesome bar”. Internet Explorer 8, from Microsoft, promises its own set of tricks. One new tool, Web slices, allows a user to bookmark a dynamic piece of a Web site, like an on-line auction or a sports score, and save it in the margin of the browser, where the user can watch as it changes, the report added. Activities is another new feature which will allow users to highlight text on a page, click on it, then instantly send it to another site, like a mapping, e-mail or blogging service.
