Every day, we round up the most interesting tech stories of the day here. Unlike most days, today wasn’t dominated by a small number of stories that broke during the morning, so instead of focusing on just a few major events, today’s list consists of a more eclectic mix of stories than usual.

The selection ranges from a discussion of where Mozilla should focus its energies on in the near future by the organizations’ own chair Mitchell Baker, to an overview of the flaws that a Google engineer found in a major anti-virus product.

Read those stories – and more – by clicking on any of the headlines below.

There's a slider bar on the lower right that zooms in and out. It could still use a little adjusting on the overall format.

Yo dude. Love the concept, but it's too hard to read. Any way to make it larger and / or make it so the headlines are fully visible?

@StephenHauskins good point. That doesn't let you see more of the headlines, though, or am I missing something?

@randallb Good question. I've been wondering about that myself. I'll ask the Pearltrees crew about that.

@FredericL

It helps a little. The text and the lines should be a little further out to open up some space between each topic

Frederic, aside from the zoom feature which influences the size of the pearls and trees we haven't yet made it possible to alter the size of text or pearltree names to make them more visible. It's a good thought though - perhaps something we'll get around to for the 1.0 version.
