Tux Games - Your online store for Linux games

Filed under
Web

Gaming can sometimes be a make or break affair for most people that would like to give Linux a try. Well if you are such person, then Tux Games should be of interest to you.

Tux Games is an online store that features a wide assortment of games for the Linux platform. Some of the games available are X3: Reunion, Majesty Gold, Prey, Creatures- Internet Edition among others. They have all the gaming genres covered: action, strategy, role playing, FPS, arcade, sports, puzzle and more (some of the genres are yet to be filled with games though).

What caught my interest about Tux Games is how they seek to promote game developers who want to sell their wares.

Gngr: A New Web Browser Focused On Privacy

A group of developers have started writing their own open-source web browser that primarily is designed to increase web privacy and greater security. Gngr is the new web browser under development and its conservative defaults mean no cookies, JavaScript, HTTP referring support, third-party frames, and a minimalistic user-agent string. Gngr is written in Java to make use of the Java runtime's sandboxing abilities but ultimately they plan to switch over to some other JVM-based language. While the code has yet to drop on Gngr, it's said to be coming after the initial release. Those interested in more information on this privacy-focused web-browser can visit Gngr.info. Read more
