Super 'Firefox' previewed

Filed under
Software

A BROWSER based on the open source browser Firefox, called Flock, has just been released and claims to give a taste of what life would be like under Web 2.

The preview, or V0.5, can do a lot of things that Fireferret can’t. It has a lot of automated controls and there is no need to move your favourite sites into folders to manage and manage them. You can also add tags to favorites at the touch of a button.

Flock comes with a built in open source search engine, called Clucene. One of the features is it has its own blog editor that works with WordPress, Movable Type and Typepad and Blogger. It comes with a built-in RSS reader, which allows a user to read all of their favourite bogs in one place, without the need to separately navigate to each one.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
