How do you feel when your are free to do anything?
Open web is about the ability to openly publish content, articles and applications on the web in open standards or coding, implementing or accessing the content,code or web-apps etc.
And think about the situation when you are in an Exam and trying to solve a problem and a teacher is standing beside you and watching. How do you feel? That is the Non-Open Web.
Difference between Open web and Non Open webYou can publish and reach hundreds of millions of people by publishing a content, article, photograph etc.
Open Web Example:
- Domain name registrars and web hosting services that, like phone companies, don't judge your content.
- Cheap internet access that doesn't discriminate based on domains.
- The idea of an open Internet is the idea that the full resources of the Internet and means to operate on it are easily accessible to all individuals and companies. This often includes ideas such as net neutrality
- Web browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome etc
Non - Open Web Example:
- Formats: many media formats controlled by patent pools, e.g. even publishing H.264 video is at the mercy of "MPEG LA". Supposedly it's free to publish free video, but if you want to publish video and charge for it, you have to pay them royalties. Not open.
- Domain name registrars: just this week, NIC.ly, the registrar for .ly domains restricts on contents. Not open.
- Censored internet access: numerous countries censor access to the internet.
- Flash player is a property of Adobe. So the flash content on web is Not open.
What is Mozilla's relation with Open Web?
Mozilla is not only the Firefox browser maker. It is an Non Profit organization running by a passionate global community. The most popular web browser Firefox is a project of Mozilla. Not just that, the softwares projects by Mozilla are Thunderbird, Firefox Mobile, Firefox OS etc.
Mozilla is playing a major role in open web campaign by making aware people about open web.
Together, we’re able to create and innovate with local interests in mind, while making the Web better and more accessible for everyone everywhere. -MozillaIndividuals who are passionate about Mozilla and raise awareness about the many benefits of Firefox & other Mozilla products are welcome to the community. They can join, create, learn, enjoy the openness.
At the end I'd like to thank Mozilla for giving us such community and the openness and I'm very happy and excited also being a student ambassador.

Microsoft's Internet Explorer was not just the most problematic web browser, It was also a headache for web developers. When other popular browsers started supporting HTML5, IE did not. After all when a technology gets older the Internet Explorer starts supporting it. That is why IE was loosing its users. According to the W3Schools Browser statistics in Feb 2015 Internet Explorer users worldwide are 8.0% where as Google Chrome has 62.5% and Mozilla FireFox has 22.9% users worldwide. That statistics also says that From 2002 to 2015 the IE users are gradually decreasing.
The Spartan engine has interoperability at its core and consumes the same markup sent to other modern browsers like Firefox, Chrome.
The most Exciting thing in Spartan is that it includes the Microsoft Cortana Intelligent personal Assistant. The voice assistant will be there in the browser whenever you need it. It will answer your questions while browsing.
It also supports in browser note taking. Comments and Annotations can be added in anywhere in a page, it'll never be connected to the web though. Its just for the user end.
But you have to wait until the technical preview of the Spartan releases.

How nice it was when we did it just by removing some strings from profile picture url right?
#Facebook is getting secured day by day, so that vulnerability has been fixed.
Don't worry folks, There is a new way to do that and its very easy.
This method is based on the Graph feature of #facebook. Facebook Graph allows an app to get the raw data of a user.
Go to the victim's Facebook profile and copy the Username from the profile url as in the picture bellow
Now open this url and replace the Username with your victim's username and open it.
You are done! Happy Hacking :)
