have any of you tried brave and is it worth?
Oooh finally a Brave post.
I've been using the desktop version for the past week. It's considerably better and more stable than last month.
Side by side though chrome is still a bit faster and stable but still uses a bit more memory.
Brave will definetly be my normal use browser as I make the move to de-google most of my shit.
There are a few features it's missing though which you find out yourself as they're too small to really talk about.
Go a week with brave, mess with the settings. I think most people who are mostly even a bit intelligent will love it come it's "full release"
Stumbled upon this in my news aggregator:
Edited for space:
>[Apple Software] users are all very safe in comparison to Windows, (and all other operating systems including Linux) because Apple Inc. expends a huge amount of effort on protecting your personal privacy. All of Apple’s operating systems are actually the same exact basic operating system commonly called “Mac” but in reality Apple calls it Darwin (because thats where all life came from, according to Apple). Each variation of Darwin gives the user a different experience.... The point being that all Apple products are actually based on Darwin, which Apple continuously polishes and improves upon.
>Darwin is a pure UNIX, and is certified as such by the official UNIX governing body (The Open Group) which results in greater stability of the operating system because its required to be extraordinarily compatible with other official UNIX operating systems. This gives a side benefit of being more robust and more secure because the true UNIX community is continuously working on improving security and stability.
Now here's the part I'm wondering about:
>If this sounds like the promise made by the Linux community, that is because it is the same, however Linux community members have no driving force behind them to actually make sure that their systems actually work because its software is written by volunteers who only contribute effort when their personal needs require them to create or correct a piece of software. The problem with that approach is that no one is responsible nor committed to create or update software so it only happens randomly, if at all.
Is he right about Linux being less secure? Honestly, it really doesn't sound right to me. Sure, there's no CENTRALIZED driving force behind it, but there's so many people contributing, each focused on what they want....
The reason why FBI is pissed off about Kaspersky AV is because Kaspersky refused to cooperate with them.
American AV companies cannot be trusted. At all. Symantec, for example, is known to have removed NSA and FBI malware from their database. Even F-Secure removed QWERTY from their database when USG requested it.
Leaked Valult7 CIA docs say that Kaspersky's the hardest to disable and bypass and they said they have no easy way to do it. After CIA leaks were revealed, Kaspersky went ballistic and started hardening their shit even further so the methods that the CIA used to disable other AVs would never work in Kaspersky.
Only Kaspersky is refusing to play ball with USG and now they're paying the price for it. FBI and neocon media is spreading FUD about them and morons fall for it.
Personally, I trust Kaspersky more than any other AV because they expose all nation state malware... even the Russian ones!
Not a general to halt shitposters.
i3wm - https://i3wm.org/
Babby's first twm, easily customizable from a central config file, has sane defaults. Usable out of the box.
Xmonad - http://xmonad.org/
Written and configured using haskell, so knowledge of haskell is recommended. Highly extensible, stable, and dynamic.
bspwm - https://github.com/baskerville/bspwm
Binary Space Partitioning Window Manager
bspwm is a tiling window manager that represents windows as the leaves of a full binary tree. Stable, supports lots of customization out of the box.
dwm - http://dwm.suckless.org/
Dynamic Window Manager written in C.
Slightly higher learning curve than most other twms, basic knowledge of C is necessary for configuration as it takes place in the header file. Very
This sounds interesting. I've been using Ubuntu for 7 years, and have tested the waters with tiling WMs, but have always found them too complicated. I can't code. I pine for better and more efficient window management, but can't get Wifi, widgets, keyboard input, etc in anything other than the big-box WMs.
I'll be lurking in this thread.
If you want something easy mode you can install a normal gui environment alongside your tiling wm and do some things in there.
For example I can't properly get root access to install some things when i'm using i3, but I can log out, boot into Mate or something else, and do it from there more easily.
Why is Mozilla so shitty? Now ebay doesn't even load correctly. Great job, shitheads.

Since when Firefox Nightly no longer supports ublock origin what are you guys using now to block ads?
What sort of enterprises use it?
>what kind of enterprise
All of them.
Any mature company with a sizable Linux footprint is most likely using rhel. I work for a big saas company and we switched from RHEL to CentOS to save on licensing costs. (10s of thousands of servers)
What's the comfiest USB port?
My ISP (Charter Communications) has started throttling certain sites, 4chan included. It takes forever to load threads but reddit loads instantly. This is some fucking 1984 tier censorship.
I have charter spectrum and can vouch for these huge latencies. I usually have /wsg/ on a separate tab to listen to music and it stutters non-stop. I can barely get my posts through sometimes. Images keep half loading and forcing me to reload a thread, which takes several minutes sometimes.
Why would you ever succumb to using this buggy sack of shit over your desktop web browsers?
Stupid questions thread, for stupid questions.
Use a search engine faggot.
In terms of piracy it's pretty much the standard now for 4K releases, becoming more common for regular HD too, released alongside the regular H.264. To play them smoothly you'll either need hardware decode (AMD Fury/RX 4xx and newer, nvidia 1xxx/some 9xx series, Intel 7xxx series) or a reasonably quick CPU, especially for 4K.
certain sites (like codepen) dont load at all on my normal chrome, but in incognito they load instantly.
restarts dont help and the only addons i have are ublock origin and adblock plus
>New Coffee Lake 8700K
>single threaded performance no better than 7700K
>multithreaded performance only slightly better than Ryzen 1600X
I was actually expecting a lot better from their 6 core, and this is coming from someone who generally prefers AMD.
Jesus, this is pathetic. For a company with the resources Intel have, I expected a much stronger response to Ryzen. Not this fucking trash, tiny increase in performance from last gen.
Looks like what little performance benefit they have is from clock speed increases.
>tiny performance increase from last gen
This had been ever iteration of Intel processors for a while now. I'm on 4th Gen i7 and will not have to upgrade for a very long time. Hell 2nd gen won't have to for a while.
Why do people say Linux has no games when you can just GPU pass through and play any games you want in a windows VM? Aren't the speeds as fast as natively playing windows?
Why do people say Linux has no games when they play on Android? Seriously though, I play on my Linux desktop and pretty decent games.

I have 2 questions
The first is I'm looking at upgrading the screen in my t430. The guide on the wiki says to buy a ribbon style cable and cut it a bit so it will fit, but wouldn't pic related work fine too? Or will the fit be too tight?
2nd, what is a good hard case for a t430? Pelican or something else?
