  • How to install Brave Web Browser in Linux | FOSS Linux

    The brave browser is one of the new entries in the browser battles, with its first release (Version 1.0) being 13 November 2019. By comparison, Google Chrome had its initial release on 2 September 2008 and Microsoft Edge being July 2015. Brave browser is much more focused on privacy, faster browsing speeds, security, and efficient performance. Brave is based on the Chromium opensource project, which also powers other browsers like Google Chrome. Among the developers includes Brendan Eich, who happens to be the creator of the Javascript programming language and a co-founder of Mozilla – the company behind Mozilla Firefox. An interesting feature that puts brave in the limelight is their unusual business model. Brave removes all ads on a website and replaces them with its own ads. Additionally, it provides users with a platform to send money to their favorite sites. That hasn’t gone well with content publishers. In 2016, lawyers representing 17 newspaper publishers wrote a cease-and-desist letter to Brave with the message, “Your plan to use our content to sell your advertising is indistinguishable from a plan to steal our content to publish on your own website.”

  • How do I select my startup disk in VirtualBox? – Linux Hint

    Computers are incomplete without memory. Primary and secondary are two types of memory that a computer needs to function. Primary memory includes RAM and ROM, whereas secondary includes hard drives, DVDs, etc. Both types of memory are crucial parts of a computer because one stores your app data temporarily, and the other stores your operating systems, applications, and media. So what is a startup disk? A startup disk, also known as a boot disk, is a storage device that contains an operating system; it can be a CD, DVD, USB, or even a hard drive. Startup disks are typically internal hard drives or SSDs of the computer if the operating system is installed on them, and they come into the category of secondary memory. The startup disk contains files required for boot sequence, where boot sequence is the initialization of key processes needed for a user to interact with a computer. Therefore, every computer needs a startup disk. Likewise, in VirtualBox, we also need to assign a startup disk of the guest operating system. Many users use VirtualBox, Oracle’s cross-platform app for x86 virtualization to boot other operating systems right from the host operating system. The operating systems run through VirtualBox is called a guest operating system, and the machine it is running on is called a virtual machine that emulates the real machine.
