Firefox nieuws week 28

Categorie: Firefox Nieuws
tags: 11

Aangezien de nieuwsberichten nogal hard gaan en het bijhouden van deze me iets teveel tijd kost ga ik over op weekoverzichten.

Ik weet nog niet of dit zal bevallen, maar dat is even afwachten. Als ook dit niet bevalt, is de kans groot dat ik stop met deze sectie of dat ik helemaal over ga op een geautomatiseerde variant. Suggesties zijn natuurlijk welkom.
