  • Firefox Preview 3.0 release brings along enhanced tracking protection and more changes by ᎮᏒᎥᏁፈᏋ

Google Chrome is the dominant browser across the globe, but it is imperative for the market to have worthy competitors. Mozilla’s Firefox is one such alternative, which although has just about 4% market share, is important for the development of the browser ecosystem. Back in July 2019, Mozilla had announced that Firefox for Android will enter its maintenance phase as the team had begun work on an entirely new browser. This came in the form of Firefox Preview, or Fenix as it was also known as. Firefox Preview was then released in the form of a public preview, allowing interested users to try the new browser.

  • Researchers develop solid state battery that doesn't catch fire when heated by omkarsawant594

In the last few years, the only notable update to battery technology in smartphones has been the boosting of charging speed. After the Samsung Galaxy Note7 fiasco, one would think that we’d have seen newer battery technologies start trickling into the market, but that has not yet been the case. Hopefully, this may change very soon thanks to a research team at Australia’s Deakin University, who’ve managed to use common industrial polymers to create a solid-state battery with double the density. If that wasn’t enough to get you excited, what’s more, is that the researchers have concluded that the battery of their design won’t explode or catch fire if overheated.

  • MediaTek 5G Chipset to boost sales by 20% in 2020. by Subrata Maity

MediaTek, the chip-making company, is projected to see a sizeable growth of 20 percent in terms of sales volume in 2020. The boost in numbers arrives after its announcement of its latest mobile SoC which boasts 5G networking capabilities. The company has invested billions of dollars in 5G technology development with thousands of research specialists and is confident in its products capabilities. According to a new report, MediaTek’s sales will grow to 9.84 billion US dollars in the Q1 of 2020. The number is about 20 percent higher than the company’s expected sales in 2019.

eSIM is an emerging technology that has been around for a little while, but most people don't yet know what it's all about. So what exactly is eSIM and, more importantly, how is it different than the standard SIM cards that we already use in our smartphones? The term SIM literally means Subscriber Identity Module, and it’s just a simple memory chip that holds identity information about cellphone users. SIM cards are usually integrated into a UICC (Universal Integrated Circuit Card), PVC cards with metal contacts.
