[News] A Look at GNU/Linux Web Browsers Chrome and Arora

Hash: SHA1

Linux Chrome Builds Get Plug-In Support

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux: If a lack of third-party plug-in support (i.e. Flash) kept you from 
| trying out Chrome on your Linux system, then avoid no longer. The "early 
| developer version" now supports many plug-ins, and they seem to work pretty 
| well.   


Arora: A light-weight, cross-platform web browser based on WebKit

,----[ Quote ]
| Arora is an open source web browser that uses the same WebKit rendering 
| engine found in Safari and Google Chrome. But unlike those browsers, Arora is 
| already capable of running on Windows, Linux, and OS X, as well as a few 
| other platforms including FreeBSD.   



- From The Labs: A first look at Chrome 2

| Charles McLellan checks out the new features in Google's latest browser, and
| compares its performance to its rivals


Google Chrome 2

,----[ Quote ]
| You’ve probably seen many web sites saying, "Yeah! Chrome rocks! Fast!
| Speed-speed-speed! Woo-hoo!", provided with a bunch of benchmarks flexing
| it’s muscle, so to speak.
| Is Chrome fast? Yes, obviously. The fastest? No, that honor still belongs to
| Lynx and always will. Fastest GUI-based browser? Quite possibly.


Google Chrome As Smooth as Chrome on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| I would say once Flash gets in into this Google Chrome pre releases then it
| will be something I will stick with on Linux. Once Google Chrome comes out to
| Linux and Mac the browser wars will really heat up, and I don’t think Chrome
| is going to melt.


Test-driving Chrome for Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I’m impressed with Chrome so far.  Its tiny resource footprint is
| likely to score big points with Linux geeks who like their machines to run as
| efficiently as possible, and with users seeking a more responsive browser
| than the mainstream offerings.  The current lack of integration into Gnome
| and the inability to change search engines (not to mention most other
| preferences) is discouraging, but we should spare final judgement on these
| issues until Chrome’s Linux port becomes stable.


Five Essential Apps for the Ubuntu User

| Ubuntu really shows the flexibility and potential of the Linux desktop. And
| the various applications – like the five discussed in this TechTip – add to
| that flexibility.
| Are you an Ubuntu user? If so, what are some of your favorite applications?

Google Chrome on Linux First Impressions and Screenshots

,----[ Quote ]
| So how unstable and incomplete is this developer version of Chrome? --At
| first, I didn't really notice its instability since it didn't crash on me.
| But upon checking my system stats, I found out that it is still
| (understandably) resource hungry as it is not efficient in utilizing RAM and
| CPU.


Chrome on Linux: Rough, fast & promising

,----[ Quote ]
| I'd been waiting for Chrome on Linux since Chrome first showed up. Chrome, if
| you haven't tried it, is the speed-demon of Web browsers. I love it. But,
| until now, there really wasn't a version that would run natively on Linux.
| Starting last night, June 4th, Google released developer's versions of Chrome
| for Macs and Linux. They're rough, really rough, but they're also really
| fast. Here's what I found in my first hours of working with Chrome on Linux.


Get your Google Chrome on in Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| It is exciting to see such progress. I realize a lot of Linux users out there
| aren’t the biggest fans of Google. Those fans should at least give Chrome a
| try so they can see just what they will be missing. I have used Chrome on
| both Windows and Linux now and I can, without a doubt, the Linux version will
| blow away the Windows version. Of course from what I have seen the Linux
| version already is running better than the Windows version I used and I’m not
| supposed to be using the Linux version (It will probably install Windows on
| my machine while I am not looking.)


Google Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux: First Impression

,----[ Quote ]
| At present Chrome only supports Ubuntu 8.04 or Debian 5 and later. Its
| performance on Linux is decent. It loads the pages fast and starts almost
| instantly.


Google Chrome For Mac, Linux Released To Developers

,----[ Quote ]
| However, the company is discouraging average users from downloading the
| browser-in-progress unless they really know what they're doing.


Google readying Mac, Linux versions of Chrome 2.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has a swathe of new functionality ready for Chrome 2.0, along with Mac
| and Linux support. Here's what's inside.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
