Re: Classic Browser (Chromium based)

Fine, I wouldn't even dream of contesting your tech credentials -- please feel free to do as you please. 8) Just be aware that this is not a recent debate here at TPFC forums as, particularly in regard to Google's products alone, it can easily be traced back to over a decade ago -- and I summoned up...

Dopamine (DotNET audio player)

Been meaning to make a quick post about this player for quite some time -- I guess today will be the day... I haven't tested Dopamine , really, but it has consistently made it into top players lists around the web mainly because it can manage large music collections. Moreover, the UI looks cool, the...

Vagrant (virtualization manager)

This is a little out of my depth but, with all the recent talk of virtualization, I think Vagrant is an avenue of exploration we should at least point out here at TPFC. Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments. @ https://github.com/hashicorp/vagrant/ Vagrant is a tool...
