Living on Firefox Pt. 3: Trying to Tame the Fox

So it’s been roughly five days of living in Firefox. I installed and synced the browser successfully across my two laptops, tablet and phone and was ready to get to work. During the last two days, I went about using Firefox for my daily needs: email, writing google docs, content management for a website with WordPress, note taking and more. I can’t report that everything went well. But I’ll ... »

Living on Firefox Pt. 2: Getting in Sync

Living on Firefox Pt. 2: Getting in Sync

So last Friday I decided to see what life on the web would be like if I ditched Chrome as my daily browser to go with Firefox. See here. Before I set out to really test what Firefox could do I needed to look into Firefox’s  sync capabilities.  The best part about Chrome is the seamlessness of syncing across desktop and mobile.

Experiment: Leaving Chrome for Planet Firefox, Pt. 1

Experiment: Leaving Chrome for Planet Firefox, Pt. 1

I always like those tech series where a writer does something brave: Use nothing but Chrome OS for a week or (gasp!) Ubuntu for a month. As much as I like these pieces, I’m not all that crazy about putting myself through social experiments. I’ve already tried living in Fedora and I don’t last much longer than a week. I didn’t last more than 10 minutes in Windows 8. I don&... »

How Lightread converted a reluctant RSS reader

Although I do nearly all of my news reading online, I’ve never been a big fan of Google Reader. I developed a habit long ago for simply bookmarking my favorite sites and visiting them when I had the urge to check in.

Linux Sucks because it Can’t Play Netflix

Linux sucks because it can’t play Netflix. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this said or seen this written.

Windows 8 Secure Boot Isn’t a problem for Suse

Windows 8 Secure Boot Isn’t a problem for Suse

Windows 8 will be released on the 26th October of this year and the frustrating thing for open source lovers like me is that Windows 8 makes it very difficult or if can say, impossible to run my Ubuntu OS alongside Microsoft Operating System.   Windows Secure Boot if you don’t know, is controversial UEFI based feature developed by Microsoft to prevent unauthorized firmware, operatin... »
