Good for you!  smiley
Have you tried Opera's latest chromium based?
Here's what GHacks reported in a recent article.

Was wondering about just that this a.m.!
Actually, why Vivaldi didn't do the move yet.
So, Opera beat them to it.

The beta or "next" version should install all Chrome extensions without any hassle.

Maxthon has been a funny adventure.
They've got 4 different browsers and none are finished enough to say they are polished products.
They made this MxNitro 'cause their users voted speed as their top prefered feature in a new browser.
Go figure!

Maybe no.5 will be one with decent addons...

Speed enhancement seems to be the big promise with Windows 10 as per this article, but the free upgrade would appear to go back to Windows 7 only:
"Pour la première fois, Windows 10 sera pendant un an offert comme une mise à jour gratuite pour les utilisateurs des deux versions antérieures, Windows 7 et Windows 8.1."

It's interesting to note that Makulu's dev has recently taken the Ubuntu Unity direction why Linux Mint seems to be planning the opposite. With Ubuntu's ongoing expansion efforts you wonder what Clem has in mind for the long term?

@MilesAhead, didn't know Windows 10 could be installed on old PCs too.
If so, then that would be a first for sure!

As expected, this latest LM distro has its quirks too.
Tweaking Linux distros i find almost endless compared to what you can do with Windows.

What is nice with LinuxMint and Ubuntu is that they work pretty well out of the box, have drivers for most important peripherals and can thus revive old PCs for a few more "miles ahead".  tongue

Ya, and i was almost first to post on LM's blog too!
Have been patiently waiting for this version.
Always liked LinuxMint and Clem sure is doing an excellent job!  Thmbsup

Not sure if this is an issue but CPU has been hanging around 50C

Otherwise, this distro was a piece of cake to install and it is truly fast!!

Based directly on Debian (not on Ubuntu).

Did i beat 40hz to post about this?  Wink

True, but we all can see the need of an occasional fable...
The other day i went looking of a song i enjoyed as a young boy, something that had the words "sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere." A childish song for sure, but as a boy it just uplifted my heart and filled it with joy as i contemplated a blue sky on my uncles backyard swing.

I don't know how people can spend their time watching stories about living dead... must be true stories since these programs are almost everywhere on tv.

Not that i believe in the scientificity of it all but i did enjoy some like:
30. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Helps us to keep things in perspective.

Then again, do you believe in the scientificity of all the information the mainstream medias bash out at us everyday?
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Stuff you need to know on: March 10, 2015, 08:01:30 AM
A friend fooled me with the title of this composition.
What did you think it was about?

Stuff you need to know

1. Your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice
 about you. Wear nice shoes.

 you'll die within the next 3 years.
 
 3. There are at least 6 people in the world who look exactly like
 you. There's a 9% chance that you'll meet one of them in your lifetime.
 
 4. Sleeping without a pillow reduces back pain and keeps your
 spine stronger.
 
 5. A person’s height is determined by their father, and their
 weight is determined by their mother.
 
 6. If a part of your body "falls asleep", You can almost always
 "wake it up" by shaking your head.
 
 7. There are three things the human brain cannot resist noticing
 - food, attractive people and danger.

 the unpleasant odor.
 
 10. According to Albert Einstein, if honey bees were to disappear
 from earth, humans would be dead within 4 years.
 
 11. There are so many kinds of apples, that if you ate a new one
 everyday, it would take over 20 years to try them all.
 
 12. You can survive without eating for weeks, but you will only
 live 11 days without sleeping.
 
 13. People who laugh a lot are healthier than those who don’t.
 
 14. Laziness and inactivity kills just as many people as smoking.
 
 15. A human brain has a capacity to store 5 times as much
 information as Wikipedia.
 
 16. Our brain uses the same amount of power as a 10-watt light

 25. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
 
 26. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires,

 Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

Just installed StartPage plugin for FARR and it is working fine. Just as good as DDG for sure!
But, not as quick as Bing desktop search app.
It's okay.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 12:13:55 PM
Didn't want to override you on anything Waith808.
I saw various posts but none that were specific that i was thinking of.
Although it is relatively easy to set DDG as search engine on Vivaldi, i haven't tried it on Google Chrome.

DDG is improving (can't say that much for Yahoo).
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 08:42:59 AM
We all know how Google made its way to fame and fortune.
We also know that is no longer as "good" as we once thought it was or would be...

How about considering DuckDuckGo as an alternative for better privacy, "open source" as well as a community oriented service? https://duck.co/
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 04, 2015, 01:46:18 PM
That was a full course meal Ian!
A web clipper add-on like Evernotes' for Firefox would be a nice addition.

Thanks again!  thumbs up
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 03, 2015, 07:58:19 AM
Using the one that came with either Office or Outlook 2013 (both shareware - not expensive enough?).

Update: CliptoOneNote addon does the trick just fine but would expect better from native OneNote clipping or printing options.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 02, 2015, 01:51:29 PM
Do hope our OneNote guru can answer this one.
Is there a way to clip notes from webpage to OneNote and preserve hyperlinks that are present within?
Have printed and emailed entire webpage to ON but neither have active hyperlinks (look just like one "picture").
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Pale Moon browser now available on Android on: March 01, 2015, 01:32:48 PM
Palemoon is good on Android although Dolphin and UC browser are excellent too (the later i find fastest)!
Apparently Maxthon is more secure in WiFi environments like the airport.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: February 18, 2015, 12:18:37 PM
Thank you Ian for your generous time and most elaborate response!  Thmbsup
A ctrl+A type hotkey would have been most appropriate. Next version maybe?

Would be nice if Microsoft could integrate a bit better their overall search for ON.
In time...
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: February 17, 2015, 02:18:32 PM
It's nice see that OneNote is now a free program.

Do have one hick with this software.
The other day, tried to import a .pdf file but it created separate "pages" for each page instead of one page (as hoped for) but ended up with over 400!
Evidently i went on to delete the OneNote pages but it seems that we can only delete one page at a time.
Fortunately, i was able to transfer the other pages to another "tab" then simply delete the one with all the extra pages.
Wish there was a way to batch delete some pages instead of one at a time.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FireFox = total crap? And Jobs was oh so right about Flash, anyway. NoScript? on: February 16, 2015, 04:07:02 PM
It may be a long shot, but Firemin works for me.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Looking for Livestream alternative on: January 27, 2015, 04:28:58 AM
Never heard of Twitch.tv before. Thank you Deozaan!
After posting here i managed to pickup a few more tips, so i think i should be good now.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Looking for Livestream alternative on: January 25, 2015, 02:57:58 PM
In Arkansas far West where nothing seems to be faster than 3mbps upload at present time,
and Livestream (which requires a minimum 30mbps) is way out of the range...
Was wondering if hosting a non-direct (as opposed to live stream) video file on Dropbox (or other cloud service) would be a viable possibility?
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 17, 2015, 07:51:57 PM
Now i understand the situation better.
Thank you Renegade!  Wink

It's not an easy world and reading in between the lines takes a bit of practice.
