  • Chrome 58 rolling out now to Mac, Windows, and Linux, Touch Bar support not yet available
  • Why Firefox? Because not everybody is a web designer, silly

    Write, as I have, about Firefox and you receive the usual slew of critics who demand to know why Firefox matters? Who cares if Firefox continues to exist? This is often accompanied by "Chrome is better! Chrome is all we need!"

    Clearly a lot of people do think Chrome is better. StatCounter, which offers reasonably reliable numbers on browser market share, puts Chrome at just over 50 per cent of all web browsers.

    That's an impressive market share, one that leaves the remainder of the browser world as a fight among minor fiefdoms, with Mozilla holding about 14 per cent and Microsoft (combining Edge and IE) about the same. Safari and Opera are hardly worth mentioning on the desktop (though you should see Opera's worldwide mobile stats, nothing to sneeze at there).

  • Upcoming Features of LibreOffice 5.4

    As reported the other day, The Document Foundation announced that the first bug hunting session for the upcoming LibreOffice 5.4 office suite would take place on April 28, 2017, debugging the first Alpha build that'll be released early next week.

    However, as promised, in this article we'll take a look at the upcoming features of LibreOffice 5.4, at least those that have been already revealed. These include new "Edit Section" and "Footnotes and Endnotes" entry in the context menu of the Writer, which work if the cursor is in a section, as well as in a footnote or endnote. Check out the screenshot gallery below to see them in action.

  • [Wine-Staging] Release 2.6

    Since a lot of users were confused after reading the development version release notes, we would like to clarify, that the command stream multithreading (CSMT) patchset has not been fully merged yet. There has been a lot of progress during the last weeks, but unfortunately the performance related optimizations are still missing in the development branch. We expect them to be merged in one of the following releases. In the meantime, Wine Staging users can continue to use the CSMT performance improvements as usual (i.e. by enabling the CSMT in the winecfg Staging tab).

  • Wine-Staging 2.6 Released

    Building off last week's Wine 2.6 release that brought partial Command Stream Multi-Threading support is now Wine-Staging 2.6.
