Mozilla argues that Windows on ARM users need to have a choice in which browser they use, Twitter assures everyone that no login credentials were leaked, and Adobe’s security chief praises Apple for crippling older versions of Flash in Safari.
- Windows on ARM Users Need Browser Choice Too: Mozilla has expressed their concerns regarding Microsoft prohibiting any browser except for Internet Explorer to run in the “Windows Classic” environment in Microsoft’s upcoming release of Windows for the ARM processor. Mozilla believes that ARM is the future, and that we will find it in our laptops, phones, and tablets in the near future. As a result, Mozilla feels Microsoft is doing a disservice to everyone that will use an ARM processor soon and in the future, as they will only have one choice in which browser they use, and they are calling on Microsoft to allow third-party browsers to have a presence in ARM.
