Chromium (web browser) Chromium is the open source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code. The browsers share the majority of code and features, though there are some minor differences in features and they have different licensing. Chromium is the name given to the open source project and the browser source code released and maintained by the Chromium Project. It is possible to download the source code and build it manually on many platforms. To create Chrome from Chromium, Google takes this source code and adds: By default, Chromium only supports Vorbis, Theora and WebM codecs for the HTML5 audio and video tags. Google Chrome supports these as well as the patent-encumbered AAC and MP3 codecs. The Google-authored portion of Chromium is released under the BSD license, with other parts being subject to a variety of different open-source licenses, including the MIT License, the LGPL, the Ms-PL and an MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license.

Let’s take a look at 2014, a banner year for 3D on the web! A Year of Great Content John Cale and Liam Young’s City of Drones brought together experiments in music and architecture; Isaac Cohen continued to blow minds with visualizations like Weird Kids and Webby; Google’s A Spacecraft for All chronicled the 36-year journey of the ISEE-3 space probe; and SKAZKA showed us an alternate world created by The Mill and powered by Goo. A Year of Killer Apps In 2014, WebGL made its mark– an indelible impression– on advertising, e-commerce, music, news and engineering.
Lightweight Browsers Flashpeak.com The folks at FlashPeak.com have created two lightweight browsers in this category. Slimbrowser was developed as a lightweight high speed alternative for the Windows OS and uses the Trident engine. Slimboat is similar in appearance, but the core uses Webkit to offer versions in Windows, Linux and Mac OSx. Both are reviewed with emphasis on what makes each unique.

20 Things I Learned" by Google Chrome Team From the Author: What’s a cookie? How do I protect myself on the web? How (and Why) to Set Up a Secondary Browser Optimized for Slow Internet Connections SExpand I like how you say "use fewer extensions" followed by "use the speed dial extension" and "use the tabvault extension". Snarkiness aside, Opera has the option to start with the tabs from last session or not, and speeddial is built in.

The HTML Hell Page "Hell is other websmiths." — Jean-Paul Sartre, updated Translations: GermanPolish blinking text Blinking text makes it nearly impossible to pay attention to anything else on the page. It reduces 87% of all surfers to a helpless state of fixated brain-lock, much like that of a rabbit caught in the headlights of an oncoming semi. This is not good. Comparison of browser synchronizers The following tables compare general and technical information for a number of web-based browser synchronizers .

Install Sublime Text 3 (beta) on Linux Mint or Ubuntu Now that beta version of Sublime Text 3 has become more and more stable, I am going to post an updated walk-thru for the new version, since the commands differ in a few places, and I have learned a few things in the intervening months (slowly – baby steps here . . .). Image by Nick Ares / Some Rights Reserved As noted in the previous article regarding Sublime Text 2, Sublime Text 3 is not currently part of the Synaptic Package Management system on Linux Mint (or Ubuntu). Therefore, there is no magical apt-get install command as you might use to install other software on your Linux system, so we have to do a little more work. In this article we will look at two different methods to install Sublime Text on your Ubuntu or Mint machine.
