Konqueror vs Firefox

Filed under
KDE
Moz/FF

Firefox has extra features that Konqueror doesn't have and the add-ons might be a deal breaker for some people. The page rendering worked perfectly on every site I tried and to be honest I use it everyday so if it didn't work I wouldn't use it.

Konqueror would be fine for most circumstances but there was at least one example of a page not rendering properly. This could be the reason that openSUSE ships with multiple browsers.

Have you used Konqueror? What have been your experiences?

Moz/FF

Firefox OS, currently available in version 1.3, has never been known for its good looks.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
