    Thunderbird goes from DEB to snap in Ubuntu 24.04

    Later I just downloaded Tar package from Mozilla, and update it manually.

    In short, I just abandoned deb/snap/flatpak altogether.

    Mozilla released a Firefox Nightly test build with vertical tabs - gHacks Tech News
  • Bad news is that it is not clear at this point whether Mozilla is going to go forward with the implementation. A post on Reddit by one of the project members suggests that the build is a "rough proof-of-concept". Some features tested in the build "did not survive". It is unclear which did not, as they are not mentioned. Mozilla is, however, implementing those that survived the cut into Firefox. Again, the poster does not mention which those are. It is also not verified that the poster is actually a member of the project team, so take this with a grain of salt as well.

    XZ Hack - "If this timeline is correct, it’s not the modus operandi of a hobbyist. [...] It wouldn’t be surprising if it was paid for by a state actor."
    • Careful choice of program to infect the whole Linux ecosystem
    • Time it took to gain trust
    • Level of sophistication in introducing backdoor in open source product

    All of these are signs of persistent threat actors aka State sponsor hacker. Though the real motive we would never know as it's now a failed project.

    DNF5 can replace the current package manager in Fedora 41, as the proposal has been made and is pending approval.

    >Enhanced Performance: DNF5 promises faster repository metadata processing and improved package query operations, aiming to save users precious seconds during package management tasks.

    > Reduced System Footprint: By eliminating Python dependencies and merging the functionalities of DNF and MicroDNF, DNF5 offers a significantly smaller installation size, reducing metadata redundancy.

    > Unified Experience: Fedora aims to provide a consistent package management experience across all platforms, with DNF5 serving as the sole package manager for servers, workstations, and containers.

    Firefox saw an increase in users (~50% in Germany and ~30% in France) following Apple’s default browser changes in the EU.
  • There is a work-in-progress version of Firefox for iOS with Gecko engine.

    But, there is also a challenge that Mozilla is facing as Apple is still trying to make life of developers of other browsers as difficult as possible.

    So, not sure how the whole thing will turn out.

    >Making use of Linux's Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) opens up new possibilities while users can still enjoy the VirtualBox VMM itself. The KVM support is part of the mainline kernel so there is less worries with not having to use the VirtualBox kernel driver, KVM tends to support new features quite quickly, and tends to be more actively developed than VirtualBox and is embraced by a range of organizations. Early users of this backend by Cyberus customers are said to be experiencing better performance too.
