I found this awesome youtube player, by Google no less. I think it was called chrome. Mozilla used to have something similar they might still be working on it.

...paid AND closed source. It looks like they've done a nice job, but I'll stick with KeePassX unless they decide to open source it.

I love Ubuntu and use it daily, but I don't see it ever taking off as a phone OS. Most likely it will be even more niche than the desktop version.

Install Oracle Java 9 In Ubuntu, Linux Mint Or Debian Via PPA Repository [JDK9]: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/02/install-oracle-java-9-in-ubuntu-linux.html

Because I've received quite a few requests for this, you can now install the latest Oracle Java 9 (early access release) in all supported Ubuntu / Linux Mint versions, by using the WebUpd8 Oracle Java PPA.

For now, you should continue to use Java 8 because Oracle Java 9 is available as an early access release (it should be released in 2016)! You should only use Oracle Java 9 if you explicitly need it, because it may contain bugs and it might not include the latest security patches!

Remember TopMenu? It's a standalone global menu which until recently only shipped with a MATE panel applet. Well, the TopMenu developer has added a new plugin, which allows using TopMenu under Xfce (Xfce Panel).
