Mozilla releases Firefox 14.

Firefox Blog:

Firefox has new features that make browsing more secure and Web applications like games more powerful.

We automatically make your Google searches secure in Firefox to protect your data from potentially prying eyes, like network administrators when you use public or shared WiFi networks. Google is currently the only search engine that allows Firefox to make your searches private, but we look forward to supporting additional search engines with this feature in the future.

Also, it now properly supports Full Screen Mode on Lion.

Apple owns 74% of smartphone web traffic, 95% of tablet traffic

BGR:

Chitika found that a whopping 95% of tablet Web traffic came from a version of Apple’s iPad, mainly the newest iPad, and 72% of smartphone traffic also belongs to Apple, compared to 26% for Android devices.

Do Android users know that their phones can browse the web? This is such a weird thing. Report after report says that despite Android selling more and more devices every day, with hundreds of models from so many manufacturers, still iOS dominates web browsing. I’ve heard some speculate that most Android buyers really don’t know what they are buying, and that they just get what the store employee tells them and then basically just play games and use it as a phone (as they did with a feature phone, not a smartphone). Whatever it is, it’s really weird, so many freaking phones and not using them to their potential, especially with bigger screens like the ridiculous Galaxy Note. It just doesn’t add up.

Facebook to buy Opera? WTF?

Pocketlint:

A Facebook browser that would allow you keep up to date with your social life from in-built plug-ins and features on the menu bar could be on the cards. Pocket-lint has heard from one of its trusted sources that the social networking giant is looking to buy Opera Software, the company behind the Opera web browser.

Why?

Bump update now lets you move photos from smartphone to computer.

So just download the app for iPhone or Android, then go to bu.mp and allow location services on your browser. When you bump your phone and computer (don’t over do it) then your photos appear on the web page, ready to download. Of course, if you have iCloud you don’t really need this, but for those who don’t, this is pretty cool.
