Everybody hates Firefox updates - Evil Brain Jono's Natural Log

2012 Jul 16, 1:59

Former FireFox developer on the switch to their continuous update cycle. 

Oh no, Chrome is doing such-and-such; we’d better do something equivalent or we’ll fall behind! We thought we needed a rapid update process like Chrome. We were jealous of their rapid update capability, which let them deploy improvements to users continuously. We had to “catch up” with Chrome’s updating capability.

Dealing with servicing on IE for years had led me to some of the same thoughts when I heard FireFox was switching to continuous updates.

Protecting Browsers from Extension Vulnerabilities

2010 Feb 27, 10:06A web browser add-on security research paper that describes the Google Chrome security model. "We propose a new browser extension system that improves security by using least privilege, privilege separation,
and strong isolation. Our system limits the misdeeds an attacker can perform through an extension vulnerability.
Our design has been adopted as the Google Chrome extension system."PermalinkCommentssecurity design google chrome firefox addon plugin web browser technical research adam-barth system:filetype:pdf system:media:document

Making browsers faster: Resource Packages · Alexander Limi

2009 Nov 17, 6:52"What if there was a backwards compatible way to transfer all of the resources that are used on every single page in your site — CSS, JS, images, anything else — in a single HTTP request at the start of the first visit to the page? This is what Resource Package support in browsers will let you do." Another resource packaging implementation but this suggests they'll actually implement this in FireFox. One issue with all of these is you can't use the resources from the package in any context that didn't ask to use the package for fear of security issues which means you can't stick the packaged resources in your HTTP cache. The package itself could go in the cache which would mean multiple packages per page or all your page's resources in one package. Of course the same security issues are a concern for all of the packaging proposals if a site has any way to inject into the source the request for the package. It'd be a similar vector to the UTF7 XSS issues but much worse attack.PermalinkCommentssecurity web browser http zip firefox resource technical via:kris.kowal

Recap Firefox Extension | "turning PACER around"

2009 Aug 14, 3:55The government program PACER is an online archive of court records and even though the documents are public domain, PACER charges access to them ostensibly to pay for PACER. This plugin uses the Internet Archive as a kind of free intermediate cache, rewriting the PACER HTML to reference the free Internet Archive versions of the documents when available and uploading PACER documents to the IA cache when you download one it doesn't yet have.PermalinkCommentsvia:waxy firefox government politics research reference legal law plugin technical
