A new design for Epiphany: Web

Filed under
Software

As you might have heard in many other places a bunch of GNOME and WebKit hackers have met in rainy Coruña for the 3rd WebKitGTK+ hackfest. Many things have been discussed, but today I’m going to give a sneak preview of the new design for Epiphany and its rebirth as the core GNOME Web application.

The design is still very much a work in progress, but I can try to briefly talk about some of the highlights of the refreshed concept:

* Focus on the current page content. This means, in general, that we’ll get rid of as much chrome as we can (a trend that we started some time ago already), and in particular and more visibly that we won’t have a visible tab bar by default.

* The tab bar might be gone, but we’ll still offer a convenient, and we think improved, way of switching between pages.

Understanding The Linux Kernel's BPF In-Kernel Virtual Machine

Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine. The slides have been published for those wishing to learn more about its state and capabilities. Read more
