Successful look at Falkon KDE Snap Browser

Falkon browser, formally Qupzilla, is now available as a snap based application. I have got it working properly in KDE Neon. Falkon was forked from Qupzilla and is still in heavy development, as a result most of the branding you see still says “Qupzilla”. Falkon uses Blink engine, similar to Chrome, but this version comes from a fork of Chromium. Install instructions: snap install kde-frameworks-5 snap install --edge falkon Info: https://blog.neon.kde.org/index.php/2017/08/29/great-web-browsing-coming-back-to-kde-with-falkon-new-packaging-formats-coming-to-kde-with-snap/ Like my channel?

Does every Linux browser run on Blink, Chrome's engine ?

Does every Linux browser run on Blink, Chrome's engine ?

So, you might have heard that Microsoft will be retiring their own HTML engine, EdgeHTML, and will base the next versions on the Chromium engine, called Blink. I think it's time to take a look at some of the browsers available on Linux, that use the Blink engine ! 1 - Chrome and Chromium Obviously, you know these guys. Chrome is based on Chromium, which is itself open source, and they both use the Blink HTML engine. The main difference between the two are codec support, since Chrome comes with AAC, H264 and MP3 support, as well as the flash plugin and a few restrictions on which extensions you can install. They both are pretty speedy, but gobble enormous amounts of RAM to deliver that performance. They both look mostly the same, and support a plethora of extensions to improve and extend your web browsing experience. 2 - Opera Opera used to have its own rendering engine, called Presto, but they canned it in 2013 and moved to Blink, Google's fork of Webkit. Opera has some nice features though, such as a built in ad blocker, a picture in picture mode, as well as a battery saver and a way to make browsing faster by compressing images on the webpages. It can also be customized with themes, and can be synced with an Opera account to keep all browsing history, favorites, passwords and open tabs on all your devices. It's a well rounded proposition, even though it doesn't integrate all that well with the Linux desktop and works well on Linux. 3 - Vivaldi This browser has been created by Opera's co founder, and was supposed to bring a complete browsing experience for heavy internet users and Opera users which wereunhappy with the migration from the Presto engine to Blink, which removed a few features, at the time. Ironically, Vivaldi also uses the Blink engine. Its integration with Linux is subpar, and it does look pretty alien compared to other native applications, even though it supports themes. It comes with a bunch of tools, such as integrated notes, a screenshot tool to capture a whole web page, and a handy image information panel that lets you know a few metadata about the image displayed in the browser. You can also sync your browsing data between devices with a Vivaldi account. 4 - Brave This one might be less well known. it's aimed at the privacy focused crowd, and has been created by the cofounder of Firefox and the creator of Javascript. Brave is based on Chromium, and is advertised as 2 times faster as Chrome on the desktop, since it blocks ads and trackers. Brave also implements a reward system for publishers, where users can make micro payments and reward publishers with blockchain based tokens. Brave tries to offer a new approach to reward content creators on the internet, one that is not based on ads. Since its marketshare is still pretty low, it has not succeded yet in bringing this new model to the major web publishers, though. 5 - Other options So, what if you don't want to use any browser based on the Blink engine ? Well there are few options : you could use Firefox: it has good system integration on Linux, is now as fast as Chrome (SPEED TEST / BROWSER MARK) since the Quantum project started to land, and is backed by a company known for trying to uphold a free and secure web. If Firefox is not to your liking, and your browsing needs are simple, any webkit based, linux native browser can do the trick ! Epiphany, also called GNOME Web, can do the trick, with support for ad blocking, syncing with Firefox account, and speedy browsing. Falkon is a great option for KDE users as well. Neither of these will be as fast as Firefox or Chrome, though, but if you value system integration over speed, they are good options. There are not many other options apart from these, and it shows that the web is starting to be dominated by one rendering engine, which has always been a bad thing for the web. Google already is under suspicion of making YouTUBE slower on non-Chrome browsers, and they start to implement some features that are not part of the W3C standards, making other browsers and engines play catch-up to display the Google websites correctly. I won't pester you to use Firefox over Chrome, but if you value an open web, driven by good standards, I can only recommend you try some of the non-Blink based options first, and see if you like them ! If not, well, everyone is free to choose the right tool for their job !

Great KDE applications - The KDE Experiment - part 4

Great KDE applications - The KDE Experiment - part 4

1 - Falkon Falkon is a KDE web browser. It looks and feel every bit the KDE app, with a nice clean interface, and some powerful features by default: it ships with some themes, it has an ad blocker integrated, a download and password manager, and even has some extensions, such as Kwallet integration, autoscroll, and even vertical tabs ! It renders webpages competently, being based on webkit, and is fast and stable. I use it for almost all my web browsing sessions on KDE these days. Falkon is available in Discover and is a well integrated, good looking, and powerful browser. In my opinion, it lacks Firefox Accounts sync, but apart from that, it handled anything I threw at it. 2 - Kdenlive Of course this one was going to make the list ! It's my video editor of choice on Linux, even when I'm using elementary OS. It is powerful, full featured, and look great. Kdenlive has a lot of effects and transitions you can apply on the fly, with a built-in library to download more, supports multiple audio and video tracks, can render in a lot of different formats, and has a good project bin where you can organize media within folders. Kdenlive has a lot of effects you can apply on your audio and video, such as increasing gain, blurring, movement tracking, compositing, color calibration, and more. THe only downside of this fantastic piece of software is its stability: depending on your drivers, your system, it can behave erratically from time to time, crashing regularly, or refusing to apply some effects for no reason. Thankfully, it autosaves pretty often and can recover from crashes very quickly without losing any unsaved work. It's in my opinion the best oepn source video editor out there for Linux. 3 - Digikam Digikam is a photo library and ediitor. Compared to gwenview, it has a lot more features ! Its interface might even seem cluttered by moments, with tabs and navigation options layed out vertically on the right and left of the main photo library. Digikam handles RAW files as well as standard image formats. It has a powerful editor, with a lot of transformation tools to shear, rotate, adjust perspective, flip, and crop your photos. It also has a complete library of effects, including oil painting, charcoal drawing, film grain, embossing, etc... Ou can tweak and enhance any picture with red eye reduction, color and white balance, adjusting brightness, curves, and levels, anything you can want in a photo editor. On my computer, some effects were a bit slow to apply and did not preview in real time in the application, but for users with a beefier PC, I think Digikam is a great option to tweak and make their pictures really shine ! 4 - Krita Krita is a digital painting program. It can be used like oe would use GIMP or photoshop, but it's more suited to digital artists using a tablet, with lots and lots of paint brushes to get results quickly, fantastic color selection tools, as well as a ton of filters, shape editors, and layer tools. I'm not the best suited person to talk about this great piece of software, but here are a few examples of what you can do with it: https://krita.org/en/features/gallery/ For anyone willing to apply their digital painting skills, Krita is the most powerful open source tool out there. 5 - Kontact Kontact is a shell that integrates most KDE personal information management (PIM) software in one application. It handles Mail, contacts, calendars, todo lists, feeds, journals, and notes, in just one program. THink of it as KDE's Outlook ! THe interface of each module can be daunting at first, with options, toolbars and settings everywhere, in true older KDE fashion, but everything here is customizable to look and feel however you want it to. If you don't want a full integrated PIM suite, you can obviously download and start each module as a separate app, for example Kmail here. All these apps are pretty powerful, even though some start to look a bit dated, such as Korganizer, the calendar. 6 - Other applications Obviously, there are plenty more KDE apps I can't cover here, such as Kdevelop, the KDE IDE, which is the complete package to code on Qt or KDE applications, Dragon Player, a very simple video player, AMarok, the eteranl beast of a music player, packed to the gills with features and plugins, or the Calligra suite, which is a full featured office suite with programs ranging from the word processor, to the vector drawing applications, including spreadsheets, presentations, and databases.

From the Gnome Wiki, "Web is the WebKit based web browser for GNOME. It offers a simple, clean, beautiful view of the Web. Its code name is Epiphany." In this series called The Battle of the Browsers, I take a look at several different web browsers to see which is the best for browsing the World Wide Web.
