No More Fire­fox OS Sup­port from Mozilla

As ironic as this sounds, Mozilla has is­sued a state­ment say­ing that come May, it will no longer be sup­port­ing

Fire­fox OS. Mozilla has al­ready stopped ac­cept­ing app sub­mis­sions

for An­droid, desk­top and tablet, and that it will re­move all apps that do not sup­port Fire­fox OS from the Mar­ket­place. Mozilla's de­ci­sion to halt the de­vel­op­ment of Fire­fox OS was made to fo­cus its re­sources on bring­ing the power of web to the

In­ter­net of Things (IoT). ________________________________

Google Aban­dons Flash in Fa­vor of HTML 5 for Ads

Google is giv­ing Adobe Flash yet an­other pink slip in fa­vor of HTML5 for ad­ver­tise­ments in the fu­ture. The search en­gine an­nounced in one of its Adwords Google+ post that its de­ci­sion to aban­don Flash was a cul­mi­na­tion of its ef­forts for the past few years to en­cour­age ad­ver­tis­ers to ac­cept HTML5 as the new medium of an­i­ma­tion. Start­ing from June, ads that are built in Flash will no longer be up­loaded into AdWords and DoubleClick Dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing, with sup­port for Flash to be dropped

com­pletely by 2017. ________________________________

Face­book App the Rea­son for Phone's Bat­tery Drain

Face­book's mo­bile app has been

named yet again as the main cul­prit for ma­jor bat­tery drain. One user men­tioned that once he had unin­stalled the app, the other apps on his phone launched 15 per­cent faster, and re­sulted in 20 per­cent more bat­tery life a day. Ad­di­tion­ally, the dele­tion of the app also saved stor­age space on his phone, as the Face­book app au­to­mat­i­cally saved a cache on his phone, a func­tion that some other apps do in or­der to cut down load­ing time

(e.g. mo­bile games).
