By the way, to be completely precise, Brendan Eich was the co-founder of FF. I tried it, a while back. At the time, I found it very basic, to be honest my Quupzilla seemed more feature-rich!!! And way less hungry in resources. Brave is an electon app, consequently using more system resources. Additionally, I didn t like the fact that it felt like informing me how much faster it was in secs or how many things had block. I had this feeling:
“It’s often said that with Google and Facebook, the user becomes the product. Brave’s alternative of turning users into tokens sounds like a modest advance at best”.
As to his leaving Mozilla, he was actually made to leave:
"Some employees of Mozilla Foundation (a separate organization from Mozilla Corporation) tweeted calls for his resignation, with reference to his donation of $1,000 to California Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California before being struck down in 2013, when it was declared unconstitutional and marriages were allowed to resume. Eich stood by his decision to fund the campaign, but wrote on his blog that he was sorry for “causing pain” and pledged to promote equality at Mozilla. Some of the activists created an online shaming campaign against Eich, with online dating site OkCupid automatically displaying a message to Firefox users with information about Eich’s donation, and suggesting that users switch to a different browser (though giving them a link to continue with Firefox). Others at the Mozilla Corporation spoke out on their blogs in his favor. Board members wanted him to stay in the company in a different role. On April 3, 2014, Eich stepped down as CEO and resigned from working at Mozilla; in his personal blog, Eich posted that “under the present circumstances, I cannot be an effective leader.”
@Jeannie____ , I don t see it allien under plasma. My settings for GTK apps are GTK2=QTCurve & GTK3= Breeze Dark
@Krugar, I can see your point and agree with you for most of your remarks. I believe you have to elaborate a little bit on them, taking 2 factors under consideration:
We live in the eye candy era and
The vast majority of the noob-friendly Arch derivatives come (myself included) from the Ubuntu/Mint world of colorful automation and fanboism, who, in turn came from Windows (mostly).
Personally, I use pamac as a quick refence Software Center. I find clicking on an apps name and having all its extra info (dependencies, etc) very useful. For the rest part, I feel more confident using the terminal.
I find you way too optimistic. Has any of you followed discussions with a gnome dev in the ‘proper’ gnome places? Not only do they believe that their "product’ is perfect as is, not only are they unwilling to give away any kind of customiseability, but their intention is to provide something even more featureless.
Companies hate customiseability. I guess for a good reason (to them). They are concerned on the “average”, less technical user who just wants a DE to start working. So the more simple it is, the fewer chances to break and the more stable.
That applied to Red Hat, so far. I don t have high hopes because Canonical got back to the game. Ubuntu also has got the same “company standards” aiming to the same target group. Unity was one of the least configurable DEs. A little before its death, the…option to place the launcher at the bottom was a…revolution to their fan boys!!!
Sorry, gyus, I disaggree. To begin with, the topic title called for criticism : (Blame on Gnome and GTK! (do not take personal). And that s what we all did. If that was posted in reddit, eg, would it be of any difference? We all have our standards, ways and prefferences (someone called it "philosophy, in here). I didn t see anyone not behaving, or a quarell among buddies so far or anyone being disrespectful. Of course, I like arguments myself, especially the hot or even the flamest ones, provided they re well justified and not argumentum ad hominem (attacking the person and not his/her argument).
So, imho, arguments (strong and light ones alike) should be welcome because they can be a source of good info. No matter who takes part in them (users, mods, devs). As long as they stay arguments that is and not flame wars. In this topic, personally, I did not see any flame war but an exchange of some possibly-useful-to-others info.
Wow! I think the king is back! Firefox 54 (multiprocess enabled) is noticeably faster while using less RAM than before and handling it more effectively.
More info here
Multiprocess is enabled only if there are no incompatible addons installed. There s an easy way to find it out.
There is the Addon Compatibility Reporter. Once installed, you simply open the “Add-ons” page from the FF menu. At the top, there s an indication “Multiprocess is enabled / disabled” accordingly. In your list of add-ons, it tells you which ones are compatible and which are not, so you can turn off or remove them altogether. At the same time it gives you an option to let developers know about the incompatibility of their add-ons.
One more step to enable multiprocess mode, in addition to removing addons that are incompatible, is to also to go to about: config and change the value of the dom.ipc.processCount variable from 1 to the recommended by Mozilla 4 (or more If we have enough memory…
The final default multiprocess implementation is to be released with v 57 this November.
Here s the addon
All of the above, for some may indicate that the king browser has returned. Personally the reason why I use Mozilla Firefox is ideological and not because it has now acquired all of the above.

Mozilla, a non-profit organization that brought the open Web, open protocols, and the independent browser, away from proprietary ownership, while at the same time sparing us from a “privately-owned Internet”. So the minimum I could do is to use Firefox (and to put up with all its flaws and mistakes in the past) to make it even better.
If you have picked
linux-ltsduring install, then you are having BOTH kernels and you should see them before booting so you can pick the one you d like to boot with. In this case, default is the vurrent kernel and the lts is in the “advanced options”.
If you have not, then, you can install it now. Fire up a terminal and
sudo pacman -S linux-lts, or just look for the same package in pamac gui software manager. In this case, the lts kernel will be your default kernel and the current one will be in the “advanced options”.
It might be a good idea to install
linux-lts-headers, as well.
Using the lts kernel does NOT mean downgrading kernel. It is a more stable kernel because it s conservative and more suitable to older harware. Curent kernel, on the other hand, is more suitable mainly if you are on the latestr hardware .
Who could answer this question for you, if not YOU? Though, for Ubuntu, the answer is easy. CANONICAL. And the distros that depend on what products Canonical release.
One could go on endlessly about the pros and cons of each OS , their functionality, the philosophy behind.
So, to keep It Simple Stupid, the KISS philosophy behind Arch/Antergos, you have nothing to worry about your programs. They all work in the same GNU/Linux ecosytem. Keep it updated (as a rolling release it gets updated almost daily) and install 3rd parties apps from one place, the AUR (forget about all the many ppas) . The rest are in the official repos.
But bear in mind. that Arch/Antergos is far less automated than what you have been used to and you need too “google” things and consult the best Linux wiki in the Linux world. The Arch wiki.
As to the core of your question, help yourself here.
I don t know if anything has changed, but I remember, in my early days here, the devs philosophy was that they didn t have the ambition that Antergos should be the Ubuntu of Arch. That users should have some basic knowledge in Linux so that they could deal comfortably enough with an Arch system.
I agree with this, as long as it s lack of experience and NOT just laziness to create a partition table manually. :)
