In this post I’m sharing some of the little tricks I use on my pc.

As most of you know today is the firefox 3 download day.
Mozilla is trying to set the record for most downloads in 24 hours.
But for once the Ubuntu devs are extremly fast in updating their repositories.
You can already use the update manager to download and install firefox 3 final.
I thought it would be weeks before it got in.
Together with firefox 3 comes a new kernel (2.6.24-19) and lots of other updates.
That being said, Opera released their new browser (9.5). A .deb package can be downloaded on their website.
Their new “skin” looks awefull on ubuntu, but you can download the old skins from their servers.
I was very surprised today when I installed the newest “screenlets” version.
The quality of the applets, the number of applets, the way they integrate with your desktop, it’s all done perfectly.
I used lots of “widgets” programs (on kde4, vista, xp) but the newest screenlets version blows all the competition straight out of the water.
I did a piece about Google gadgets a few days ago, well Google’s gadgets aren’t even in the same league. Forget them. You want screenlets.
