Opera 10.60 for Linux Released 0

Opera 10.60 for Linux Released

Opera released their desktop browser v. 10.60 for Linux on Friday, several months later than hoped. See the note at the end of the post for my theory on the reason for the delay. Last September, I posted a two-part tour of Opera v. 10.0. Part One: Mail, News, RSS. Part Two: Browsing, Preferences, Configuration, File Management. All that stuff is still there. In this post, I’ll take a look a stuff that’s new to Opera 10.60. The first change most persons noticed is that Opera removed the menu bar and added a menu icon to the tab bar; this increases the screen available to the browser window. Clicking the icon brings up the standard Opera menu choices, slightly rearranged, as well as a new choice to display the traditional menu bar.

16 Tech Innovations that didn’t quite stick

You might remember the products. You might remember the hype. Then, you are tooling down highway 41 years later and all of a sudden you think to yourself – “Hey, whatever happened to…” Failed ideas.

Well, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and see if we cannot repeat these errors again. Oh yeah, why 16? Well because we could.

Still, the Dick Tracey style communication watches, the “Computer on a wrist”, never really hit it off. I even remember a watch that gave you directions. You would put in the...

File and Network Browsing in Debian Linux and Gnome 1

File and Network Browsing in Debian Linux and Gnome

As a little explanation, I specify Gnome in the title because, with other Linux desktops, there can be other file managers. They all do pretty much the same thing, but they can look different. Fun Fact: Google runs on Linux. If you have never used Linux, I think you will find browsing your files and home network looks a lot like what you are used to. In a Linux interface, as in Windows, there can be several ways to start a program. To keep this simple, I will show only one. File Browsing with Nautilus: The Gnome file manager is called “Nautilus,” I think because it goes under the surface. To start Nautilus on Debian, go to Applications–>System Tools–>File Manager. The File Manager will open to your home folder (a folder and a directory are the same thing. The word “folder” came into use because it described the...
