Subresource Integrity Support Ready For Firefox 43, Chrome 45

Filed under
Moz/FF

With the upcoming releases of the Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web-browsers is support for the W3C Subresource Integrity (SRI) specification.

The Subresource Integrity feature allows web developers to ensure that externally-loaded scripts/assets from third-party sources (e.g. a CDN) haven't been altered. The SRI specification adds a new "integrity" HTML attribute when loading such assets where you can specify a hash of the file source expected -- the loaded resource must then match the hash for it to be loaded.

Proposed Principles for Content Blocking

Filed under
Moz/FF

Content is not inherently good or bad – with some notable exceptions, such as malware. So these principles aren’t about what content is OK to block and what isn’t. They speak to how and why content can be blocked, and how the user can be maintained at the center through that process.

At Mozilla, our mission is to ensure a Web that is open and trusted and that puts our users in control. For content blocking, here is what we think that means.

Hands on with KaOS Linux: Not just another derivative distro

For an application first demonstrated a year ago, GigJam still feels tantalizingly unfinished, with a limited number of services you can connect to, frustrating bugs when connecting to Microsoft's own services, no way to work offline and an interface you're unlikely to figure out without reading the documentation (and even then may find frustrating). It's also a fascinating glimpse into what the Microsoft Graph can unlock. The ability to filter your CRM leads information based on your meetings, or your email based on your unfulfilled orders, or your tasks based on the emails about what you're supposed to be doing -- and share that view with your colleagues -- could make you hugely productive. The ability to see the PowerPoint and the Word document you're going to use in a meeting, along with the emails everyone has had from the people you're meeting with so you know what they care about, could be a great way to prepare for the meeting. And you can do all that without sharing more information than you want (probably). It's a fantastic idea, but Microsoft really needs to improve the execution. Read more

The Red Hat Summit in San Francisco was an opportunity for CEO Jim Whitehurst to talk about the ideology of open source during his keynote presentation, and a message of changing hierarchies underpinned much of what he said.
