Outfoxed?

oneandoneis2.org: I saw on ars the other day that IE8 and Chrome are the two browsers with the most momentum at the moment: IE8 because it's the least-bad IE version, and Chrome because it's the hot new kid on the block, one imagines. Strange, really, when one considers how Firefox was the browser that came from nowhere and rekindled the browser wars..

Goofy Pro-Linux Story to Counter Pundit's Awkward Efforts to Install Firefox

Filed under
Moz/FF

linuxplanet.com: Back last August, as soon as Firefox 3.5 was released, I installed it on Ubuntu 9.04. I didn't know how to do it, because I was a rank beginner. Still am. But back then I was about as rank a beginner. Since there are so many ways to do various things in the Linux-based systems, it's easy to get confused.

Leftovers: Gaming

  • Avoid the pile-up in 'Clustertruck', a first-person platformer with day-1 Linux support, it's great
    We have been steadily getting more 3D "beat the timer" games where you're up against others times, which is great because they really can be fun. I do love getting competitive in certain games, especially with some of my Steam friends and friends in the wider community. Games like this recently have been something I've been repeatedly going back to for a break from life. Clustertruck is not only about beating the times of other people, but it's also a "the floor is lava" game, so if you touch the floor you have to start again. The really funny thing is that the safe pads are moving trucks you have to keep up with. You can at least grab onto the back of a truck if you just about touch it, so it's not always instant death.
  • Fusion 3, the next generation game engine and editor from Clickteam will support Linux
    The difference between their tools and others, is the event system. Instead of needing to program every single line, you can stack up events and link them together to create a game. It works quite well and I'm pretty excited to give Fusion 3 a go on Linux myself to see what random games I can create for fun.
