Dillo 2.0 Gets Tabbed Browsing

Filed under

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.

At the Heart of OpenStack Evolution

As it matures, OpenStack's parallel to Linux is clearer. Linux emerged 20 years ago as a somewhat exotic challenger to proprietary operating systems. Today, it is one of the most popular and widely used OSes. However, Linux still exists in a market of mixed use. It's likely that OpenStack will be subject to the same effect, becoming a viable option among a number of cloud infrastructures. Read more
