For ReadWriteWeb's ninth anniversary last week, our founder and Editor-in-Chief Richard MacManus took a loving look back at how the site has evolved over the years. But RWW isn't the only thing that has stuck around even as it's morphed over the past almost-decade.

  • Epiphany 3.29.3 Picks Up A Reader Mode, Finally Disables NPAPI Plugins
    Epiphany 3.29.3 is now available as the latest version of this GNOME Web Browser. Being in the middle of the GNOME 3.30 development cycle, the Epiphany 3.29.3 release is made up of many changes. First up, Epiphany now has an experimental reader mode that is inspired by Mozilla's Firefox reader mode. When viewing page sources in Epiphany, it will also now display within the web browser itself rather than the text editor.
