Dillo 2.0 Gets Tabbed Browsing

Filed under
Software

Dillo, the famous little browser used in small, lightweight distributions like Damn Small Linux (DSL), reached version 2.0 on October 14, 2008.

I like the clean, simple interface provided by this lightweight browser. Dillo is a great piece of software which can be used successfully in any of the not-so-bloated distributions, like Damn Small Linux.

As I already mentioned, the major feature of this release is tabbed browsing. I liked that Dillo uses the usual shortcuts for using it, like Ctrl + L for the address bar or Ctrl + T for opening a new tab. Don't expect full compatibility with Firefox shortcuts though. For closing tabs use the Ctrl + Q shortcut, or use the File -> Close menu option, although I think tabs really lack a button for closing them (and there's no reason for it not to be in there), doing it on the keyboard is slow when using it with a mouse.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
