Warning about "slimjet", a chrome-based browser

Posted 04-22-2017 at 01:24 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 04-22-2017 at 01:26 AM by the dsc

It's something like chrome with some extra add-ons/minor-but-good UI tweaks, claiming improvements in speed I guess.

But, unlike (Chr)Opera, Chromium, or Vivaldi, installing it (at least with their provided .deb installer) will mess up with your install of Chrome!

It kind of replaces it, I'm not sure the extent of the mess yet.

Winter Vacation is almost over

Posted 04-21-2017 at 07:54 AM by onebuck

I was until very recently using mostly google chrome, which I more or less solely (together with chromium; opera and vivaldi so far seem somewhat redundant, albeit not bad, and perhaps not even as redundant as chromium, which is much closer to chrome obviously) periodically cycle with firefox in recent years, abandoning for a while whichever seems sluggishier.

I had Debian testing's default firefox version, whichever it is. But only a few days with the "aurora" (the beta-est...
