quadkonsole – multiple consoles to make your life easier

First lets install quadkonsole:

yum install quadkonsole

Now, to launch the quadkonsole, just type quadkonsole in the run box (appears with Alt+F2).

You will by default see 4 console windows in single window but you can change that with command line options like so:

quadkonsole --rows 4 --columns 4

This will initiate windows with 16 consoles. How cool is that.

Browser Conkeror – fast, versatile, easy and configurable

Conkeror is a browser that uses XULRunner and is a highly configurable and programmable browser.

Here is the description of the browser from the homepage:

Conkeror is a keyboard-oriented, highly-customizable, highly-extensible web browser based on Mozilla XULRunner, written mainly in JavaScript, and inspired by exceptional software such as Emacs and vi. Conkeror features a sophisticated keyboard system, allowing users to run commands and interact with content in powerful and novel ways. It is self-documenting, featuring a powerful interactive help system.

On the initial launch, Conkeror performs the following steps:

  1. The core Conkeror modules are loaded.
  2. Any special command-line arguments are processed.
  3. Optional Conkeror modules are loaded, as described on the Modules page.
  4. The ConkerorRC file or directory, as specified by the conkeror.rcfile string preference, is loaded, unless the -q special command-line option was given.
  5. Any normal command-line arguments are processed.
  6. If the default action was not suppressed by one of the normal command-line arguments, the URI specified by the string-valued homepage variable (this is a variable, not a Mozilla preference) is loaded as if it were specified as a URI on the command line.

Do download this browser and try this out.. Its great experience…
