War of the browser updates

Which browser update is most intriguing?

This week, we report back from the annual Black Hat conference held in Las Vegas. Among the news is word of the newest features coming to the Mozilla Firefox 4 beta.

The most notable fix is a decade-old vulnerability that affects browsers universally. Also, we give you some tips on how to use Firefox' new App Tabs feature.

In more browsing news, Safari added an extension gallery in its latest update, and Chrome--already well-known for its extensive add-on repertoire--patched seven security holes in its stable version. In addition, Google upped the amount awarded to those who repair these vulnerabilities.

Finally, here's a secret for you: you can rip movies onto your iPhone, iPod, Zune, iPad, and other devices with iSkysoft DVD to iPhone Converter released for Mac and Windows--for free! And yes, it's legal, too. /p>
