tweetdeck on ubuntu

Filed under
Software

I just installed the Twitter client TweetDeck on my Ubuntu laptop (Fiesty Fawn v. 7.04). In the short time I have played with it, it seems to be working as robustly as my window-based app. The Adobe AIR framework is in alpha for Linux and so it is anyone’s guess what ultimately will happen.

I was pleasantly happy with how easy the install was… I like TweetDeck even as it goes through its beta development and appreciate that the developers actually took the trouble to create a Linux version. To me that speaks a lot for their commitment to the application and their true hacker-mode mentality. For that reason alone, I support TweetDeck and hope to see it evolve and become a replacement for all the mish-mash clients that are out there now.

  • WebExtensions in Firefox 48
  • Mozilla's WebExtensions API Is In Good Shape For Firefox 48
    Mozilla has announced that for Firefox 48 their WebExtensions API is considered to be in a stable state. They encourage developers looking to develop browser add-ons to begin using this new API. WebExtensions is an API for implementing new browser add-ons/extensions that makes it easier to port to/from other browsers, is compatible with Firefox's Electroloysis, and should be easier to work with than the current APIs. In particular, Google designed portions of the WebExtensions API around Google's Blink extension API.
  • Mozilla a Step Closer to Thunderbird Decision
    The good news is that the folks at Mozilla seem to be determined to find Thunderbird a good home where it will be able to grow and find newfound success. This isn’t surprising. As Surman pointed out in his post, the project is quite popular among those associated with the foundation — but that popularity is also contributing to the problem Mozilla has with keeping the project in-house.
