Firefox 42 new Look-

Firefox for windows has a completely new look .They have made thoughtful tweaks to the interface to give Firefox a streamlined feel. You’ll also notice bigger, bolder design elements as well as more space for viewing the Web.

Privacy:

One of the most important concerns of Mozilla in to protect the privacy of his users.By Introducing Firefox for windows 10 they have added some new features to protect from getting into danger.

Private Browsing with tracking protection: Browse without having your history, searches or cookies saved, and block hidden third parties from following you across the Web.

Forget Button: Remove browsing information from your computer after the fact. Use it when you’ve visited a site that you don’t want in your history.

Speed: Firefox has rated as the most fasted browser till date. So things like opening or switching between tabs and getting results from the Awesome Bar happen faster than ever.

Awesome Bar: Whatever we search using Firefox awesome bar it not only find it with the URL but also it finds it using the Title of the page. We can get fast and easy access to the features you use most in the new menu. Open the “Customize” panel to add, move or remove any button you want.

Webmaker Kiosk at BIW2015, Sylhet

Bangladesh is a developing country. The current Government has promised the nation to present a fully digital country by 2021. This is currently buzzed as Vision 2021. To materialize this vision of a digital country, the government is greatly focusing on ICT development.

11988514_705480409558403_1929155727118335453_nInternet, the global communication network that allows almost all computers worldwide to connect and exchange information. In Bangladesh, there are over 40 million internet users in the country whom specially use internet through mobile device. People of Bangladesh view internet usage in a limited scope; such as for social networking. So to increase awareness of the life changing capabilities of the internet for every sector, mobile operator Grameenphone and Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services(BASIS) with association with the ICT division launched “Bangladesh Internet Week-2015” for the first time. This fair was held at District indoor Stadium, Sylhet on 11th September, 2015. In this massive event, Mozilla Bangladesh also take a part with recent project called ‘Webmaker for Android’ to introduce the user an easier way to conceive their social and economic opportunities and to explode their creative mind.

2015-Webmaker-WebBanners-Vertical-300x600-BanMozilla has been developing tools to help people surf and use the web safely. But, in recent years it has focused on sharing and making on the web. In 2015, Mozilla has introduced a new Android application named Webmaker, which focuses on content sharing on the web, without any prior knowledge of programming or web page generating. The whole app works with simple touch gestures and drag ‘n drop. So, it’s pretty easy to use and almost everyone can use it.

11149587_1198109813551783_4159916636593146140_nOur webmaker exhibited on kiosk, which is a three man standable stall. The number of volunteers of ‘Sylhet Mozillians’ were engaged in and prepared the kiosk with more exquisite way to captivate the interested visitants. We demonstrate the logging process, features to make projects and the technique’s of how to highlight their own project by sharing to social websites.

So, we had to deal with a lot of people, a lot. From the very beginning our kiosk was almost full every minute. We had five volunteers for demonstration and I don’t remember if I saw them sitting or being idle for a single minute. We were asking everyone to get their phone out and download the app then we encouraged them to open an account and made them familiar with the concept and idea behind Webmaker. We face many FAQs of the visitors and it was absolute that their interest towards webmaker dissipates by learning more and more about it. They asked about, how Webmaker is different from other online content sharing platforms, how to share, who can visit their makes, to whom these are visible, will their name will be removed if someone remixes their makes and tons of other interesting questions. We were giving away Sweet Chocolates to every visitors ,pamphlet to a prominent people who visit Mozilla Kiosk, awesome Webmaker stickers, whoever downloaded the app at our kiosk or could show the app installed in their phone!

From my experience, there were 300 people visited to our kiosk and around 100 people installed the webmaker app on that spot.

The whole volunteer team really worked hard as well as we did some recreational fun. The team was full of new Mozillians and I’m happy and honored to lead this effective team. This event was great! With events like this, we can get into the mainstream lot easier. I think we should participate these kinds of events every time we get chance!11988640_127645694251737_8833192584891997361_nFor download this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.webmaker

At first we introduced each other and a welcome speech given by Head of the Computer Science & Engineering department of Leading University Mohammad Asaduzzaman Khan. Then we showed one minute silent standing ovation for our MozillaBD reps late Rahid Hasan. After that I took a session on Webmaker tools. A brief description about X-Ray Goggle,Thimble, Popcorn Maker and Appmaker. All of the participant were exited about Appmaker tool. It was most desirable part for our all participants. They want to know that how could he make his own apps without any code. I showed to the participants that how one can make an open web based app just by doing drag and drop, no code needed!
