IE8 – Developer Tools

Don’t start banging me for this, but I had to test something on Windows and thus found out this. I f  you need to debug or test something on IE8 on Windows, then you can simply press “F12” and this will bring up the developer tools… could be useful to you, sometime if you are stuck with testing something on IE on windows 🙂

ss – anothre utility to investigate sockets.

ss is :

ss  is  used to dump socket statistics. It allows showing information similar to netstat.  It can display more TCP and state informationsthan other tools.

 

This comes in iproute package in Fedora. So, to install this you would need to install “iproute” if not installed already.

sudo yum install iproute

Now, once you have done that you can look at the man page to check what all you can see with ss. but here are some examples:

#list all sockets
ss -ant
ss -art

#List all listening sockets
ss -anl

# Show detailed information and memory for all listening sockets
ss -anlme

# Display all udp sockets
ss -u -a

dwb – keyboard driven browser

First off, install using the command

sudo yum install dwb

Now for the description:

dwb is small webkit-based web-browser in the spirit of tiling window managers,that aims to be mostly keyboard-driven.

I liked the fact that it does well what it tries to do and pretty good at being fast.
