I recently started using Ungoogled Chromium on Invisible Arch Linux after looking for alternatives to Firefox. After a couple weeks of use I can say Ungoogled Chromium is a great browser and it’s become my goto alternative to GNU IceCat on Linux when not using Tor Browser. The only downside I found is that you need to jump through a few hoops to install Chrome Extensions.
But it’s not that much work to get extensions running in Ungoogled Chromium. And you don’t even need a Google account. Let me show you how.
The last time I played my favorite computer game was almost 5 years ago now back in 2015. After recenty creating textfiles.bit I went abandonia.com and was saddened to see they started charging to download Ultima Underworld.
That’s okay though as I found a different site which still had a free copy. In case I don’t find the site again I’ve enclosed the game archive with this post. And the following are instructions on how to play it on Linux.
It was around 2004 when TBP was infiltrated by the Feds. For at least a day or two the homepage of the website showed nothing other than an emblazoned FBI logo. I’m sure I still have a screenshot somewhere but I trust you know how to verify claims people make on the Internet.

I don’t know about you but I really like dark interfaces. Dark interfaces use less battery on AMOLED screens, reduce eye strain at night, and help protect you from shoulder surfers and nosy bar flies. Plus they just look good.
Which is why I was a bit miffed after installing ghacks-user.js to lock-down security in Firefox Quantum. I finished setup right before bed, opened the browser and – WHAM – my entire room illuminated with New Tab page:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you already know the guy behind WikiLeaks, who was living at an Ecuadorian embassy in London, was recently arrested and now facing extradition to the United States – the country I’m originally from – and the country which forces tax payers to fund the second-largest stockpile of nuclear weaponry ever created.
But perhaps you didn’t know that WikiLeaks was at one point hosted by Amazon. Yep, right up until political pressure caused them to take it down. Afterall, nothing says freedom like a fear of misbehavior in a country with the highest incarceration rate in the entire world. I suppose Julian Assange’s situation could be worse… Maybe, had he also been practicing Falun Gong in China. But I digress. And there’s no telling what’s going to happen.

Streamlines the development workflow of early versions of React Native, making it possible to develop applications cross-platform (unsupported at the time).
When I got a Chromecast a couple of years ago I was a little miffed when I discovered I couldn’t cast video to it using my phone’s hotspot. So today we’re going to learn how to create a Hotcast. What is a Hotcast? It’s Chromecast running over your smartphone’s LTE network. And it’s easier than you might think.
Follow along to learn how to stream HD video to your TV over your smartphone’s LTE network using Chromecast.
