    Create a browser with privacy in mind... a fair enough endeavour I suppose.

    ... but rather than taking an open-source rendering engine/scripting engine and saving 95%+ of the work they're writing...

    Considering Mozilla had to relinquish the name Phoenix and rename their browser to Firebird I wonder how long they'll be able to use that name.

    I played around with Debian in about 2001 but never kept it, some of my hardware just didn't work so played with it for a couple of days but always found the need to boot back into windows. The first...

    Also I just turned adblock off and remembered why I had to enable it for phoronix in the first place. Running Chromium Version 37.0.2062.120 (281580) (64-bit), pepperflash (from Arch AUR ) and no...

    The ads cause a horrible UX on an android phone, they cause the page to display a progress bar every 15-20s which scrolls to the top of the page. This seems to happen less on the forums than it used...

    Smart really... make a terrible OS and have it preinstalled on all new computers for a couple of years, release a "fix" which restores the stripped out functionality and you can charge people for the...

    So will these be the version after 4.14? I really don't understand KDE versioning any more.... 5s... 4s... 14s......

    If you've been running something 10+ years without a feature you almost certainly don't need it. As for security, the vesa drivers will always work if you *really* need to use the newest kernel/xorg...

    I don't see the problem with running an old kernel/xorg on old hardware. Expecting a Kernel from 2014 to run hardware from 1999 is ridiculous, just run an older version of the OS if you need to run...

    Back on topic and my thoughts on the subject.

    1) There is a huge gender imbalance in the tech world, this can't be healthy and does need to be addressed

    MS Office has clearly had more thought put into the UI. I often find with Libre (I haven't used OO in a couple of versions so it may have improved). LibreOffice Writer always feels a little clunky,...

    Microsoft Office definitely feels more polished than LibreOffice or OpenOffice, there's just something about them that feels a little dated. Feature wise, they're great but I can see why people...

    Simply put, anything which exploits any part of the X server is running as a process with root privileges. It breaks the principle of least privilege, although likely difficult to exploit it's almost...

    I never understood how people can claim Arch is faster when it uses all the same code. I use Arch and love it because of the rolling release system and getting updates ASAP without the hassle of...

    I'm surprised this potential security hole wasn't fixed years ago. At least there's progress now, it'll be great when the drivers and login managers finally catch up.

    [citation needed]


    PHP Does have some terrible flaws and I hope they get fixed, but your opinion is based little on facts. There is some stupid stuff in PHP. e.g. my favourite:

    Awesome, I'll definitely give it a go then as soon as it appears on the official arch repositories. It does look like a huge step forward, but as the posters above said the default KDE interface...

    Are themes/icon sets/window decorations from KDE4 usable with this? I'm a bit reluctant to switch if I'm stuck with the default theme for some time.

    It still seems odd to me that the concept of a cursor exists any level above the display server.
