  • Mozilla Releases Firefox 60.0.2 for Linux, Windows, Mac, and Android

Some will recommend to rely on a given API, implemented by Firefox and not Edge, or Chrome and not the others. In general valid for a limited time only... You can't even rely on chrome, browser or msBrowser since there are polyfills for that to make WebExtensions cross-browser.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ First Impressions

I have always been curious about the tiny computer called Raspberry Pi but I didn’t have the time or opportunity to buy one until now.

But before that and for your convenience, here are some quick facts about Raspberry Pi that I got from Wikipedia... Read more
