I spend most of my time on MJTP, my Lenovo Thinkpad T60 laptop.
The following is a list of software, services, and/or web sites that I regularly use.
- Ubuntu is the operating system on MJTP.
It's a popular distribution of
(I have been using different Linux distributions since 2003, including Red Hat, Fedora,
Mandrake, Debian, Suse, and Ubuntu.) Ubuntu is called "Linux for Human Beings".
Linux is an Open Source operating system.
I strongly support the Open Source movement in software industry, and try to use, promote, and
support the open source software.
- Firefox is my first choice browser. I also
have Chromium installed on MJTP, but hardly use it.
Although it's faster than Firefox, but it lacks firefox's diverse add-ons. Also, I need to use
different proxy settings, for different web sites, which is not easily possible with chromium,
as it uses the proxy settings of the operating system.
Firefox, on the other hand, can be configured to use its own proxy settings.
Here is a list of Firefox add-ons that I use:
On my cell phone (MJCP), I have Opera Mini.
- DownThemAll! is the download manager I use
with Firefox. It allows parallel downloading with almost any number of chunks for a file,
and can also download all the links in a page, etc.
- Firebug allows web developers to inspect and modify
web pages in Firefox windows.
- FoxyProxy allows you to define multiple
proxy settings, and then assign url patterns for each of them.
- Pray Times!
notifies you of muslim pray times, according to your geographical location
and your preferred calculation method.
- Sxipper prefills web forms,
manages passwords, and supports OpenID logins.
