Re: Linux Sucks 2021

I don't agree with the premise of that video. GNU/Linux remains the dominant operating system in servers, and I don't see it changing. There's a lot of inertia involved in changing operating systems (even in servers) and GNU/Linux is free and good enough for the needs of nearly all companies. On des...

Re: VPN experiences so far (seeking recommendations)

Another issue with Mozilla VPN: it's still only available in eight countries at this point (USA, Canada, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand, Germany and France).

Re: Keppi (music visualizer)

I released Keppi 3.82. YouTube playback broke due to a youtube-dl update, and that finally prompted me to update the program. Changelog: Track list extraction improvements. Added detection for AC-3 codec. Fixed crash with YouTube videos. Fixed crash when metadata character set detection fails.

Re: Vivaldi (Opera [inspired] browser alternative)

Vivaldi's update on cookies and ad-blocking https://www.theregister.com/2021/04/29/vivaldi_3_8/ (and read the comments) Nice. :) Blocking cookie prompts is similar to how I have set Vivaldi to auto-reject any sites which ask for permission to send push notifications - almost no sites which want it ...

Re: Classic Browser (Chromium based)

We have a definition of portability in our about page , and not having to manually copy settings around is the most important part . So I've been told... but it's full of fallacies: ie: “It must not have any coupling with Internet Explorer…” That's a part of Andrew's ideal definition of "portable":...

Re: Classic Browser (Chromium based)

I mean, are settings preserved when running Classic Browser on a different machine? Only if you also grab this folder... C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Local\ClassicUser So that's not portable at all. We have a definition of portability in our about page , and not having to manually copy setting...

Re: Site seems to be lacking/missing/maybe just slow on updates recently?

I just updated AutoHotKey again, but their "official" source says March 10th, literally a day ahead, should I still go by that? (I went with the 9th, this time.) Probably a timezone difference. I'm at UTC+2 and your post was only nine minutes before midnight at my timezone. At higher UTC offsets it...

Re: Firefox Portable

It appears Firefox team has gone to great lengths to remove all options to quickly restart the browser, something that I use(d) a lot on my daily web explorations (caused by the massive amount of memory it uses -- I usually see it hovering way up of the 1GB mark -- which a times turns even the best...

EDIT: Oh crap I messed up, I edited the "Release Date" to when the update, and maybe should have left it as the original date...?
Release data field is supposed to mean the date when the update was released by the developer.

Re: VSCodium (FLOSS version of VSCode)

So if you downloaded the Firefox source code and then compiled it yourself, it would not have telemetry and branding? I looked on the Firefox build and build FAQ page, no info there: https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/setup/windows_build.html https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/De...
