Slimjet

There is a new application available for Sparkers: Slimjet

What is Slimjet?

Slimjet is built on top of the Chromium open-source project on which Google Chrome is also based. It enjoys the same speed and reliablity provided by the underlying blink engine as Google Chrome. However, many additional features and options have been added in Slimjet to make it more powerful, intelligent and customizable than Chrome. In addition to that, Slimjet DOES NOT send any usage statistics back to Google’s server like Google Chrome, which is a growing concern for many Chrome users due to the ubiquitous presence and reach of the advertising empire. Slimjet is compatible with all extensions and plugins designed for Google Chrome available from the Chrome web store.

Main Features:
– QuickFill form filler
– Fully customizable toolbar
– One-click Facebook integration
– Download online streaming videos
– Instant photo upload
– Photo salon
– Flexible web page translation
– Weather condition and forecast
– Integrate with popular web services such as Twitter, Google Plus, Blogger, WordPress, Gmail, Hotmail, StumbleUpon
– Proxy switcher
– URL alias
– Upload clipboard image

Installation (Sparky amd64 & i386):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install slimjet

or via APTus-> Web Browsers-> Slimjet icon.

Nyxt

There is a new application available for Sparkers: Nyxt

What is Nyxt?

Nyxt is a keyboard-oriented, extensible web-browser designed for power users. Conceptually inspired by Emacs and Vim, it has familiar key-bindings (Emacs, vi, CUA), is fully configurable and extensible in Lisp, and has powerful features for productivity.
Nyxt supports GNU/Linux, macOS, and Guix with engine support for WebKit and WebEngine/Blink.
Attention: Nyxt is under active development. Feel free to report bugs, instabilities or feature wishes.

Features:
– Fast tab switching – Switch easily between your open tabs via fuzzy search.
– Multiple selection – Commands can accept multiple inputs, allowing you to quickly perform an operation against multiple objects. In the example below we search for penguins, and only open up links that have the text “animal” within them.
– Powerful bookmarks – Bookmark a page with tags. Search bookmarks with compound queries. Capture more data about your bookmarks, and group and wrangle them in any way you like.
– Multi tab search – Search multiple tabs at the same time, and view all the results in a single window. Jump quickly through your open tabs to find what you need.
– History as a tree – History is represented as a tree that you can traverse. Smarter than the “forwards-backwards” abstraction found in other browsers, the tree makes sure you never lose track of where you’ve been.

Installation (Sparky stable & testing amd64 & i386):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install next

or via APTus-> Web Browsers-> Next icon.

Midori 7.0

There is a new application available in our repos: Midori 7.0.

Midori is a lightweight yet powerful web browser which runs just as well on little embedded computers named for delicious pastries as it does on beefy machines with a core temperature exceeding that of planet earth. And it looks good doing that, too. Oh, and of course it’s free software.

This point release has been published after over 3 years of development break.
The browser has been completely rewritten in Vala & GTK3.

Installation/Upgrade:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install midori

Midori 7.0 is available for Sparky 4/Debian Stretch and Sparky 5/Debian Buster users as well.
