  • Brave Search Engine Opens For Beta Testing

    Search engines are the front page of the Internet. This is where internet users get most of the content including articles, tutorials, courses, and videos. You probably landed on this article from one of many search engines as well.

    So far the biggest search engine is Google. Google has become synonymous with the Internet. Chrome, the most popular web browser uses Google as the default search and most of the other search engines do the same.

    It is no secret that Google and other search engines rely on showing ads to their users. When a user performs a query in the search engine, the search engine collects the user’s private information such as specific location, device type, browser history, etc. to serve personalized ads.

    The private information is further shared with other third-party companies in the name of product development & providing more personalized ads.

    In simple term, most search engines collect users’ private information and share with third-party companies as most social networking sites do.

  • 7 Best Alternatives for Google Chrome Browser

  • Karl Dubost: Today is my Mozilla 8 years anniversary

    In my employment history, I have never tried to spread a large net to try to land a job, except probably for my first real job in 1995. I have always carefully chosen the company I wanted to work for. I probably applied ten times on the course of 10 years before landing a job at Mozilla.

    When the Web Compatibility team was created, I applied to one of the position available in 2013. In April 2013, from Montreal, I flew to Mountain View for a series of job interviews with different Mozilla employees. Most of the interviews were interesting but I remember one engineer was apparently not happy interviewing me and it didn't go very well. I don't remember who, but it left me with a bitter taste at the time. A couple of days later I was notified that I was not taken for the job. While disappointing, I was not surprised. I usually do not perform well during interviews, specifically when you have to demonstrate knowledge instead of demonstrating your relations to knowledge. I find them a kind of theater.

GNOME Development Outline and Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2022

  • #45 Timeout! · This Week in GNOME

    Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from May 20 to May 27.

  • Selected for GSoC'22

    I'm pleased to share that I'm accepted for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2022 under GNOME Foundation umbrella on the Pitivi project. This summer I will be updating the project from GTK3 to the latest GTK4 toolkit. To anyone that wants to be a part of GSoC, I have only one piece of advice, just go for it. Don't think if you can do it or not, don't assume failure before attempting, and don't overthink. I always felt that it is for the best of the best, and I won't be able to clear it, all the big organizations on the GSoC page overwhelmed me, but instead of making it a dream, I made it a life goal. And well, now I'm enjoying it.
