Google announces Android 8.0 Oreo. What’s new and release date

Smartphones
Google has just announced the name of the next major Android version: Android 8.0 Oreo. The name of the eighth iteration of Android comes as a result of a trade agreement between Google and Mondelez International, a company that owns, among others, the Oreo Sweets brand. So, it also was a bit of money-making scheme involved in choosing the name. It is not the first time that Google turns the name of the most used smartphone operating system into a brand bearer that probably brings important US revenue to the company. In 2013, when it launched Android version 4.4, Google chose Nestle's product name KitKat. The difference is that Android Oreo will be a major update, more important than Android 4.4 KitKat. As a result, they will benefit from more…

Mozilla Firefox 54 faster than ever due to process separation

Mozilla Firefox 54 faster than ever due to process separation

Cool Gadgets
Mozilla makes a step forward with the Electrolysis/Multiple content processes project. It's a goal to separate tab and extensions processes to speed up page loading. Developed for several months, this technology has finally reached a level of maturity that can be implemented with the arrival of Firefox 54 for desktop systems. Previous versions of Firefox used a single process to run all the tabs in a single instance, using too many hardware resources. To streamline this type of operation and align Firefox with the competition, E10s or Electrolysis was made available to everyone (first, it had to be manually enabled by the card about: config), greatly increasing the page load speed by dividing the load of Browser work between four distinct processes. Mozilla made a statement about it, saying that…
