Apple has recently released a Mac update for OS X Lion and Mountain Lion that removes its Java plugin from all OS X browsers. If you install the update, you’ll find a region labeled “Missing plug-in” in place of a Java applet; of course, Apple can’t stop you from clicking on it to download a Java plug-in directly from Oracle. The Cupertino-based company had previously halted pre-installing Java in OS X partially due to the exploitable factors of the platform, so this update signifies further distancing from Larry Ellison’s pride and joy.
Question by ked2313: What browsers are available for the iPad that are similar to IE or Firefox? There are several websites that won’t allow connection without either Internet Explorer or Firefox. I use my iPad for work and it is MUCH easier to handle than carrying a laptop or even tablet. The only draw back is the fact that I can’t access several websites I need on Safari.

The third category would co-exist alongside Windows 8′s two current categories — one for apps in the traditional, Windows 7-like environment, and another for those that belong…
This is a group of ladyfriends cosplaying as various internet browsers. As you can see, each one is pretty much the perfect personification of their particular browser. “Internet Explorer looks cross-eyed.” Right, like I said.

Choice is a good thing, and Android users certainly have a lot of choices. Default launcher or Launcher Pro? Fancy animated live wallpaper or static picture of adorable puppies? Stock browser or alternative? It’s that last question that has plagued so many, and to offer some guidance PC World pitted six of the Market’s top choices against each other. The 2.1 and 2.2 stock browsers entered, along with Skyfire 2.0, Opera Mini, Dolphin HD, and Mozilla Fennec (the pre-beta release of what could bring Firefox to your phone). The winner? Well, you can see the ultimate speed results above, with SkyFire surprisingly trumping Opera Mini, though that one seemingly has ‘em beat when it comes to repeat-visits. However, the full story when it comes to things like page rendering and Flash compatibility is naturally a good bit more complex. For those details you’ll need to click on through.
