Web News: Mozilla Manifesto, Offline Firefox, Yahoo IM/Mail, President 2.0, SNS APIs, Web Safety

The Mozilla Manifesto
; rather generic new manifesto. It reminds us of an old Jeff
Bezos quote… when someone asked him ‘What do u think about Google’s moto – don’t be
evil?’ Bezos is said to have replied: ‘I assumed this was obvious’. We couldn’t track
down the exact quote, so please leave a comment if you have a link!

Zimbra with Firefox
; kiwi Chris Double has been testing offline support for Zimbra in
Firefox, as a proof of concept of new Firefox offline capabilities (which we noted
earlier this week).

Yahoo Messenger integrates
with Y! Mail
; originally previewed in November, the IM/mail integration is being
rolled out to all Yahoo! Mail beta users over the next few months. The feature allows
users to see their friends’ status and avatars, as well as exchange instant
messages in within their browser inbox. Nicely done and is better integrated than Google
Talk is with Gmail.

2008: The Year of
President 2.0?
; “At this early stage the techniques deployed by wannabe presidents
amount to a start-up bakeoff. What politico can use the Web best to get eyeballs, money
and momentum?” Hmmm, sounds like blogging these days!

Networking Sites Opening Their APIs
; most telling comment: “MySpace declined to
comment.” But Facebook, orkut, Friendster, and my old employer Marc Canter’s
PeopleAggregator, are all working to open up their social networking platforms.

New Web safety institute unveiled
; the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) aims to
promote kids safety on the Web.
