Firefox 54: more multi-process content processes by https://is.gd/7xLhyI

firefox-multiple-content-processes

Mozilla plans to increase the number of content processes of Firefox’s multi-process architecture to four (from one) with the release of Firefox 54.

Some Firefox installations are still not eligible for Firefox’s multi-process architecture. This includes systems with accessibility tools or settings enabled. Multiple processes won’t be enabled for users with extensions either, regardless of whether those are legacy add-ons, or WebExtensions.

Mozilla ran its memory test again to determine the right number of content processes. An increase in the number of content processes for the browser always goes along with an increase in memory usage.

Google’s I/O conference concluded last week, and if there’s one thing people will be talking about long after it’s over it’s Google Lens.

Google Lens is a technology that integrates Google’s search engine with a smartphone’s camera. By taking a photo with Google Lens your camera will be able to recognize objects and search for them on the web.

It goes deeper than that though, as CEO Sundar Pichai’s keynote went on some further examples were shown.

Fake Apps Pose New Phishing Threat by https://is.gd/UsnPS3

Phishing (i.e., fake, malicious email) doesn’t always get a lot of respect. At a time when the world is focused on “zero days,” cyber “weapons” and “kinetic” cyber attacks on the power grid, the very concept of phishing emails seems decidedly old-fashioned, almost second-rate.

In reality, however, phishing continues to pose one of the top threats to businesses and consumers the world over.

Make a home server visible to the internet by https://is.gd/nFGDb0

OK, first at all, you need to find out what IP’s are used on the routers of that LAN. You could use some tracing tools like the Advanced IP Scanner which you could download free from: http://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/

You have to key in the IP Range of the LAN system like 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254. This you could find (if you didn’t know already) using in Windows Command Prompt (CMD) or PowerShell the command: ipconfig /all

Android O: What’s best we can expect from it by https://is.gd/7aRCM5

Is Android O upon us? Well, maybe almost there. Although its first developer preview was released a few months back, Google is slowly giving hints about what they are doing with this new Android version.

Rumors suggest that the release of the full version will be most likely somewhere in September 2017, and that major updates will be launched during the Google I/O event in mid-May. Despite all the talks and rumors, we cannot conclude anything, unless Google speaks itself.
