Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 Pre Brings App Tabs [For Linux Too!]

The latest Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 pre brings a long awaited feature: app tabs. This feature is very similar to the "Pin tab" option in Chrome: the app tabs use only favicons for the tabs and all the links you open from an app tab are opened to the right of all the app tabs.

Probably The Best 5 GnoMenu Themes

I can't stand the default menu Ubuntu comes with and I only keep it because I have to know under which submenu the user can find an installed application when posting on WebUpd8.

At first it was F.lux. Then came Redshift (inspired by F.lux) which also got a GTK version but only for switching it on/off. And now, a Redshift fork called RedshiftGUI finally brings a GUI for customizing everything. But what are these? All the applications mentioned above serve only one purpose: to change the color temperature of your screen by the time of day, making it easy for your eyes.

Automatically Delete Old Files From The Trash Using Autotrash

Reading my daily Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat development emails, I noticed a new package in the repositories: it's called Autotrash and it can delete files in your trash when they become older than a given number of days, purge older files to ensure a specific amount of disk space is free and some other options.

Spotify Finally Comes To Linux (Native)... Sort Of

Spotify is finally available for Linux users (native) but unfortunately only for Premium accounts because: As we haven’t found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium subscribers. This makes the Spotify for Linux rather useless since there are already a few unofficial Spotify Linux clients out there which also work only for premium users.
