As the web has evolved, some pretty interesting problems have risen. One of these problems is the so-called “tab overload”, where you have a ridiculous amount of tabs open. There are a handful of tab aids that try to help you manage your tabs as efficiently as possible, but they all implement different variations of mainly the same approach. What about an extension with a completely different approach?
At the end of the day, you might like to sit back and relax with some classic old gaming. With so many possible games for your system to choose from, which one should you play? Which ones will actually be worth your valuable time? Well, would a game that requires you to strategize and comes with many maps sound worth your time? TripleA is the answer for you!
Admittedly, there are plenty of different software tools that help you manage your finances. However, a huge portion of those that are worthwhile cost money (sometimes a lot). The solution, obviously, would be to use a worthwhile tool that doesn’t cost any money. Usually the best way is to look for an open source alternative, which thankfully exists. Let me introduce you to GnuCash.
This week, we’re giving away 25 free copies of vReveal Premium worth $1,225 in total! Find out more about vReveal and join our giveaway below.
For both iOS and Android, there are plenty of games that can waste a lot of our time. However, out of all the games in existence, there is a much smaller number of games that are actually high-quality and worth playing. PewPew is a prime example of a game that fits all these qualifications.
If you’re trying to redesign your house, redo your wardrobe, or create some form of art, you’ll more than likely be involved with choosing colors. However, there already lies the problem. With so many colors to choose from, which ones do you select? What if you want to have a certain color no matter what, but don’t know which other colors would fit? For this, Agave for Linux comes to the rescue.
Today’s browsers are constantly trying to improve and beat their competition. This ranges from behind-the-scenes changes to improved speed or standards support, user interface changes for a cleaner look, or even the addition of entirely new features. However, the developers of all those browsers haven’t been very active (or successful) in one type of improvement that could potentially bring some massive results: going from 32-bit to 64-bit.
I’m sure that you’ve come across a computer like this, especially a laptop or netbook. The screen is decently large, but the low resolution doesn’t seem to fit well with such a nice screen. Are you stuck with whatever the native resolution is? Apparently not, as there is a simple script that will take care of the problem and increase your resolution beyond what your system considers as normal!
Linux is not hard to use or understand, but it simply doesn’t fit the Windows mindset that most people have. Expecting to do everything in Linux exactly like in Windows is where problems start appearing, which can easily deter a good number of users. Thankfully, there is now a Linux distribution that could make the process a whole lot easier.
Mandriva isn’t considered to be a major player in the Linux world anymore, but it used to be back when it was still called Mandrake Linux. A couple months ago, Mandriva let loose their 2011 release, providing another impressive experience. Let’s take a look, why don’t we?
There’s absolutely no denying the fact that there has been a lot of bickering between people about which desktop environment is the best. The discussion has been expanded and refocused, from not just Gnome vs. KDE but now Gnome Shell vs. Unity, two desktop environments that are both dependent on the Gnome framework. However, Gnome Shell has finally started to build itself a place in my heart, while Unity has not.
SOPA has been a really big deal as of late, as the piece of legislation is still stuck in the American Congress, and there is no clear sign that it will get rejected. The movement to fight against SOPA has quickly been gaining momentum, including some pretty daring Internet “blackouts”. However, what if you want to do something other than constantly shout out your opinion over social media?
Today, we’ll be covering a very nice theme that should easily find a special place in the heart of Android lovers. Yes, you guessed it, there’s a well-done theme of Android’s new 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” release for Gnome Shell.
You’ve probably heard at some point that servers aren’t only for those that have a lot of money. In fact, anyone who has a spare box sitting around somewhere in their house can have their very own server, slaving away at whatever whims you may have. Although it sounds very cool, it does take some effort and a little know-how to get it all set up.
There are so many different ways of encrypting data, especially in Linux. My favorite method has always been using Truecrypt as it’s relatively easy to use and extremely effective. However, if you want to encrypt individual files, having to create a new container just for them might be a little impractical, especially when they aren’t similar files. Instead, there’s a nice little tool that will configure encryption options.
