Security and Privacy on the Internet

Posted 08-12-2010 at 03:31 AM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)
Updated 08-11-2013 at 11:44 AM by craigevil (added Antisocial ADP list)

If you are really worried about privacy there are a few things you can do including:
Use the Adblock Plus extension for Firefox and use the
Easy Privacy list as well as the Antisocial list.
This list blocks the ever increasing social networking content on third-party sites.

REAL Firefox on Debian

Posted 06-29-2010 at 07:11 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)
Updated 07-03-2010 at 06:35 AM by craigevil

This is all I do to use Firefox rather than Iceweasel.
1) download Firefox
2) extract to my /home/Downloads
3) symlink plugins by doing:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins /home/craig/Downloads/firefox/plugins
4) open iceweasel with iceweasel -profilemanager and create a profile for Firefox
5) copy my iceweasel profile to the new firefox profile
6) create a text file called Firefox.desktop

my Firefox.desktop:

Is I.E. 8 the end for explorer?

Posted 11-16-2009 at 01:17 PM by pereb

I've heard through the grapevine that IE8 is the last version of the IE browser. Is microsoft throwing in the towel?

They've got to be coming up with a replacement. Some are claiming that Microsoft will go with WebKit, which, thanks to the popularity of Apple's Safari browser and also Google's Chrome, is rapidly becoming a standard for all non-IE and non-Firefox implementations.

Others say that that the whole WebKit story is merely a feint and that Microsoft will...

Google Wave vs. Raindrop

Posted 11-04-2009 at 08:55 AM by lnarea

It's just not ready to replace facebook, twitter and the others. It’s not even ready to replace basic e-mail. If you ask me, it's just a solution waiting for a problem. Is Google ahead of the times or just falling out of touch?



Okay, so enter Mozilla Raindrop. First thing...
