Nobody likes it when a web browser bombs instead of opening up a website. So if you're a Firefox user, you should be happy with Tuesday's release of Firefox 53, which cuts down browser crashes by 10 percent for most people on Windows computers. The improvement comes through the first big debut of a part of Project Quantum, an effort launched in 2016 to beef up and speed up Firefox. Cutting crashes and boosting performance is crucial to Firefox's future. A decade ago, the browser triumphed in a Mozilla effort to reignite browser innovation, but it's faded with the widespread shift to Google's Chrome. Firefox must keep pace if Mozilla is to keep that competitive pressure alive in the market, especially with rivals like Opera and Brave building their browsers on Google's Chrome foundations. To improve stability, Firefox 53 on Windows machines isolates software called a compositor that's in charge of painting elements of a website onto your screen. That isolation into a separate computing process cuts down on trouble spots that can occur when Firefox employs computers' graphics chips, Mozilla said. About 70 percent of Windows users will get the benefit -- those using updated versions of Windows 7, 8 and 10 on machines with Intel, Nvdia and AMD graphics hardware. On Macs running Apple's MacOS software, compositing is stable, so the separate process isn't required. Another change lets people give Firefox 53 a new look. Two new built-in themes drop the swoopy tabs introduced in 2013 with the Australis project in favor of more compact rectangles that don't take up as much room and that look more like what you see in Microsoft's Edge browser or Apple's Safari. The compact light and nighttime-friendly compact dark themes can be selected in the "appearance" section of Firefox's about:addons setup, but Firefox sticks with the traditional look by default. The themes might not seem like that big a deal but, changing a browser interface can be disorienting for people. But making room for a bit more browser content is important, too. Under the covers, the change is important, too. Firefox fans have built thousands of themes to customize the browser's look, but Mozilla is ripping out the older technology that enables many of those themes to improve Firefox's performance, security and reliability. The new compact light and compact dark themes use a new theme interface that programmers and designers can employ to make themes that'll work in the future. The new Firefox also revamps how you can grant and revoke permission for websites to tap into sensitive computer abilities like the ability to know your location or use your webcam. A multitude of less obvious changes are also built into the browser, which Mozilla updates about every six weeks. Many of them are tweaks that give web programmers new abilities -- things you might not care about, but that are core to Mozilla's effort to advance the web itself. One final note: Firefox 53 drops support for Windows XP and Windows Vista. If you're among the small fraction of people still using these elderly operating systems, which Microsoft no longer supports with bug fixes or security updates, you'll have to use the slower-moving Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) version.

It's estimated, there are over 1 million outdated 4X8 industrial skylights in use throughout the greater Los Angeles area. These skylights limit daylighting performance, are prone to leaking and pose serious fall safety risks for rooftop workers. ​For over 40 years, Data Aire has manufactured air control systems for data processing centers. The high-tech manufacturing facility in Orange, CA recently upgraded their warehouse daylighting system, saving on energy costs, ensuring worker safety and improving work conditions. A mix of 30 UL Listed Smoke Vents and 58 SKYPRO Industrial Skylights replaced the existing fiberglass units. Each new unit comes with a high performance polycarbonate dome, aluminum capped frame, 50 year silicone seal and continuous gaskets. An extreme weather rated VORTEX venting base was added to each unit for proper interior ventilation. The new polycarbonate industrial skylights and smoke vents were part of a re-roof project that brought the building up to Title 24 standards. The entire project was managed by Independent Roofing Consultants and performed by commercial roofer, Howard Roofing. ​ Indoor illumination is measured in foot candles (FC) and a minimum acceptable reading for basic warehouse operations is 27 FC. For Data Aire, since warehouse workers would be performing detailed mechanical work the lowest recommended is 75 to 100 FC. A light study was performed pre and post project, both times at 12:00pm on partly cloudy days. It is always recommended when comparing light conditions to test at the same time of day and similar weather. The light study revealed the original Foot Candles (FC) in Data Aire’s warehouse were an average of 9 FC. With the new Skyco Skylights units, the FC increased an average of 120 FC (the industrial skylights registered an average of 150 FC while the smoke vents hit 90 FC). The minimum recommended illumination for a warehouse that performs detailed mechanical work is 75 to 100 FC. Providing proper interior natural light for workers contributes to increased production quality and team moral. “The old skylights drastically limited the daylighting inside the warehouse. We see this case with a lot of buildings in the Southwest due to the extreme sunlight’s deteriorating effect on fiberglass and acrylics,” explains Paul Simony, Skyco Skylights VP of Sales and lighting guru. The polycarbonate industrial skylights and smoke vents have a 70% Visible Light Transmittance and 0.58 Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (single dome SKYPRO white). These skylights are ICC-ES Listed (ESR- 3837) and third party tested to withstand 800 lbs. impact load. The improvements in lighting and savings on energy costs are tremendous. For added security and Cal/OSHA Fall Protection compliance, white powder coated Security Bars (aka Burglar Bars) were installed on the curb of each skylight and smoke vent opening. In many cases, facility managers can save upwards of 15% on their electrical costs by switching to new polycarbonate skylights. The low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of the polycarbonate combined with the new “cool roof” by Howard Roofing will significantly decrease cooling costs in the hotter months. Replacing old underperforming skylights with new polycarbonate units can be a big project. One that many building owners tend to put off until the absolute latest possible time. Aside from the energy cost savings, new polycarbonate skylights drastically decrease building owner’s long term liabilities (when combined with Cal/OSHA compliant security bars). For skylights 5 years in age or more, it is highly recommended to have a thorough evaluation of their performance and safety.
