  • Mozilla has finally launched Firefox Focus on Android, which was launched late last year on iOS but is now also available on the Play Store. Firefox Focus is a very simple and different kind of browser. While other browsers have a private mode of sorts as a separate feature, Focus is permanently in private mode. This means every session is siloed and the browser keeps no track of your history or cookies. Once you are done browsing, clearing the prominently placed trash button clears everything. To keep things more simple, there is also no tab support or bookmarks. Focus also can also block ads, analytic trackers, and social tracks automatically, although they can be disabled. You can also improve performance by blocking web fonts. The iOS version has the ability to work as an ad blocker for Safari but that functionality is absent on Android. But the Android version does show the number of ads and trackers blocked on the page with a button to disable tracker blocker in the menu. Ther..

  • The Galaxy J series is Samsung’s best performer in India and a couple of socialites have joined the party - the Galaxy J7 Pro and Galaxy J7 Max. Both like sharing photos and going on shopping sprees. The two J7s feature two 13MP cameras - one on the back and one on the front. Both are accompanied by LED flashes and have bright apertures for better low-light photography (f/1.7 back, f/1.9 front). A fast f/1.7 lens had so far been reserved for Samsung’s premium offerings. Social camera is a new feature that makes editing and sharing photos near instantaneous. You can pin your favorite contacts from Facebook, Messenger and WhatsApp so you can send them a snap in just a tap. Live stickers create Snapchat-like AR effects, you can add traditional stickers and color effects too. Then there’s Samsung Pay - the J7 Pro is getting it, the J7 Max is getting Pay Mini instead (a debut in India). Both support India’s Unified Payments Interface and can store your credit and debit cards. Both phones..

  • At today's WWDC, Apple's "one last thing" announcement had to do with the much-rumored smart speaker. It's finally official now, and it's called HomePod. Like the name implies, Apple's positioning of the HomePod seems to be all about the music, thus trying to avoid pitting its virtual assistant features directly against competitors such as Amazon Echo and Google Home. The HomePod is less than 7" tall. It has a seven tweeter array on the bottom, and a 4" Apple-designed woofer up top with auto bass EQ. Six microphones are always listening for the "Hey Siri" trigger phrase which activates the speaker. The device is spatially aware, it tries to detect the features of the room it's in and optimize its audio output accordingly. It will also identify different parts of a song and try to focus the sound for the best possible listening experience. The HomePod is powered by an Apple A8 chipset, which enables real-time acoustic modelling, audio beamforming, and mul..

  • When it comes to e-commerce SEO at scale, many of the traditional tactics used for on-site optimization simply aren’t feasible. How are you going to write individually optimized titles/meta descriptions for hundreds of thousands of products? How are you going to perform keyword research for the millions of different keyword combinations your products might rank for? Because of the large scale of many e-commerce sites, traditional SEO tactics may simply be too time-intensive or tedious to make a top priority. On top of the time commitment that would be required for traditional SEO, e-commerce sites tend to present a unique set of SEO hurdles that need to be addressed. Take crawl budget, for example. For an average website — anything under a few thousand URLs — crawl budget isn’t an issue, as these sites will generally be crawled efficiently. However, we’ve worked with e-commerce sites that have millions of URLs. For sites that large, crawl budget becomes a crucial part of SEO. Having ..
