Usability Study of GNOME, GNOME 3.20

  • A Usability Study of GNOME

    How easily can you use your computer? Today, the graphical desktop is our primary way of doing things on our computers; we start there to run web browsers, music programs, video players, and even a command line terminal. If the desktop is too difficult to use, if it takes too many steps to do something, or if the cool functionality of the desktop is hidden so you can’t figure out how to use it, then the computer isn’t very useful to you. So it’s very important for the desktop to get it right. The desktop needs to be very easy for everyone to use.

  • What You Should Expect from the GNOME 3.20 Desktop Environment

    The wait is almost over, and later today, March 23, the GNOME 3.20 desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating system will be unveiled in its final, production-ready version.

    With this occasion, we thought it would be a very good idea to summarize the best new features that have been made available in GNOME 3.20. For users, the soon-to-be-released desktop environment will have a much-improved font that not only supports new languages but also looks better, for a modern look and feel.

    During the GNOME 3.20 development cycle, most of the core apps received a keyboard shortcuts overlay, which internally is known as "shortcuts windows." It can be accessed from any graphical app with Ctrl+F1 and displays info about the available keyboard shortcuts and multitouch gestures for the respective application.

    A mobile application built by a third party for the RSA security conference in San Francisco this week was found to have a few security issues of its own—including hard-coded security keys and passwords that allowed a researcher to extract the conference's attendee list. The conference organizers acknowledged the vulnerability on Twitter, but they say that only the first and last names of 114 attendees were exposed.

  • The Security Risks of Logging in With Facebook
     

    In a yet-to-be peer-reviewed study published on Freedom To Tinker, a site hosted by Princeton's Center for Information Technology Policy, three researchers document how third-party tracking scripts have the capability to scoop up information from Facebook's login API without users knowing. The tracking scripts documented by Steven Englehardt, Gunes Acar, and Arvind Narayanan represent a small slice of the invisible tracking ecosystem that follows users around the web largely without their knowledge.
