Leftovers: Software

  • man: Man, oh man
  • hangman: Wait a little while

    I’ve gotten a little tired of typing out ls vimwiki/ | shuf -n1 all the time, and that’s usually proof positive that it’s time to give it an alias. So it’s in my .bashrc now as “tokolosi,” and here’s what the little demon dragged home today:

  • Calibre 1.46 Brings Third-Party Plugin Support for eBook Editing

    The Calibre software provides some important functions for its users, like the ability to read, edit, and manage eBooks. The developer has issued a new update and the new version brings a few major features.

  • Photocrumbs is Now Mejiro

    Photocrumbs has served well as a working name for my spare-time coding project. But the time has come to give my forgetful photo publishing PHP script a proper name. It took me a while to come up with a good name. I wanted a short and catchy name that reflects my deep interest in Japan.

Firefox takes a Quantum leap forward with new developer edition

Earlier this year we wrote about Project Quantum, Mozilla's work to modernize Firefox and rebuild it to handle the needs of the modern Web. Today, that work takes a big step toward the mainstream with the release of the new Firefox 57 developer edition. The old Firefox developer edition was based on the alpha-quality Aurora channel, which was two versions ahead of the stable version. In April, Mozilla scrapped the Aurora channel, and the developer edition moved to being based on the beta channel. The developer edition is used by a few hundred thousand users each month and is for the most part identical to the beta, except it has a different theme by default—a dark theme instead of the normal light one—and changes a few default settings in ways that developers tend to prefer.
