Firefox, the fun open-source browser that some ten percent of the web uses, has a secret. Firefox's secret is the same as Jessica Simpson's: its effortless, glamorous style is the result of — shhh — extensions! Today let's take a look at how one goes about creating these magical extensions.
Does the world need another browser, even when Microsoft's grip on the sector has weakened? Yes, says Flock. We are aiming this browser at the folks for whom engaging socially online is the most important thing they do.
openSUSE has now been included in the Novell/SUSE family of news feeds. Now the latest news concerning the open source branch of the distinguished SUSE operating systems can be delivered right to your desktop.
Microsoft's recent announcement that the long-anticipated new version of its Windows operating system, Vista, has been delayed into January 2007 leaves several questions hanging. But if the confusion over Windows is deepening, the opposite is true of Linux.
Win4Lin has released another version of its Win4Lin Pro Windows compatibility program for Linux desktops, which promises improved speed, better networking performance, and sound playback and recording for Windows 2000 and Windows XP guest operating systems. Win4Lin Pro has come a long way since the last review.
I often write that the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser does thus and such, or doesn't do this or that other thing. In truth, there are other handy but hard-to-discover ways of configuring Firefox to behave according to your wishes.
"Once upon a time, in a land not too far away, and not as distant as you might think in time, as well, there was a little penguin. And, that penguin went to the woods wearing his little red riding hood to see his grandmother in Antarctica..."
The One Laptop Per Child, or OLPC, plan is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the history of the IT industry, according to Tony Roberts, chief executive and founder of U.K. charity Computer Aid International.
Debian Projekt Leader Anthony Towns and his deputy Steve McIntyre give answers about the Debian project, the tasks of the Project Leader and future directions. The questions have been selected by Pro-Linux from the proposed questions of the readership.
Harken back with me, faithful reader, to the days of yore. Yea and verily, I speak of the days of video arcades, when a quarter of a dollar would buy you frantic minutes whereupon you, as humanity's only hope, were called upon to protect the earth from invading, marauding, aliens. In the spirit of those great arcade games comes SolarWolf, a superb arcarde game inspired by the old Atari game, SolarFox.
Coming out of Norway this morning is the long awaited Opera 9, after previous Beta/preview releases. Opera 9 is focused on being efficient, productive, secure, stylish, and innovative. Some of the new items in Opera 9.0 include Bit Torrent, content blocker, Widgets, site preferences, and more. Here at Phoronix we have a few shots up of Opera v9.0 under Linux.
The Gentoo Store has updated its selection of clothing and schwag. The main addition is the new line-up of women's clothing sporting the Gentoo logo. This was done after requests were made from a few forums users, as well as to help with the proposed Gentoo Women project. Also, some new stickers and other items have been added to the Schwag section of the store, including a nice Gentoo wall clock. Updated CD media will be available after 2006.1 is released.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could dock any application, and not just those that support the docking feature, into the system tray? A simple point-and-click operation is all it takes, thanks to a couple of helpful applications called KDocker and Alltray.

If you are a Windows user who interacts with Linux on a regular or occasional basis, you will eventually feel disenfranchised. For those brave souls who migrate away from Windows and into the Linux realm there will always be a void left where Windows functionality is unmatched on the Linux platform, or where Linux lacks a suitable replacement. Win4Lin provides a happy middle ground.
Last week we provided a brief overview of Nagios, and explained how it can make your infrastructure monitoring fun and easy. As promised, we'd like to talk a bit more about the configuration files. Nagios does more than just monitor services, so after some configuration clarifications we'll shift focus to explore the more creative uses of Nagios.
Those who currently struggle to maintain what is called “Net Neutrality” on the internet I think have taken too limited an approach to their struggle. What they ask is to maintain an existing status quo that had already been eroded from the original promise and potential of the internet against those who wish to change it even further. It would be far better to challenge it by fighting to actively restore the rights of all internet users.
