During the development of a website, the caching of .css and .js files can be a problem, especially when dealing with less tech-savvy clients who do not understand that the changes you made might not be visible to them due to their browser caching previously downloaded content.
As I've already complained before, I'm really tired of the default Ubuntu desktop. Yes, it is practical and easy to use, but it's basically unchanged ever since... forever. Maybe we can do something about it if we try hard enough.
If you ever used any Linux distribution, you are most likely familiar with the default Bash completion functionality. You start typing a command, hit Tab, and the command gets automatically completed. If there are multiple commands that match what you typed so far, you can hit Tab two times, and Bash displays a list of all possible completions. The same works for variables and filenames, but not for the many commands Git provides.
Ubuntu was once the pretty alternative to Windows with its clean aesthetics and (mostly) uniform user interface - at least for those who couln't afford to buy a Mac. Ever since Windows 10 was released, Ubuntu seemed to fall behind in looks. Basically almost nothing changed in the last 10 years even though Unity was replaced by Gnome 3 on the desktop.
Ever since Ubuntu 12.04, the automatic error reporting service called Apport is enabled by default on boot. This should be a good thing... right until the "System program problem detected" window starts popping up randomly many times during the day.
The next Assassin’s Creed game is already under development and is rumored to take place in the Viking age. As a huge fan of the series I will play with it no matter how it turns out, but I do hope that it will correct some of the faults of its predecessors.
Though the MacBook Pro hardware is simply put amazing, I could not learn to love macOS in the last 3 months and its quirks started to greatly impede my productivity. By no means am I enamored of Windows, but it fits my usual workflow way better than macOS ever did. I’m a linux fan in my heart, but for work I am often required to use MS Office products so this need for seamless compatibility left only one option.
It is always nice to add a scrolling effect for links that point to an ID on the same HTML page - and it is really easy to do with a few lines of code if you are already using jQuery.
By regularly installing updates you are ensuring that your computer is protected from known vulnerabilities and is working as intended. You also receive all the latest software versions, even the kernel which is the core of the operating system. In time, you’ll see multiple versions of it in the GRUB menu and it can possibly fill your root partition which in turn can lead to a variety of problems.
Did you know that one of the most frequent mouse actions is clicking the back button of the web browser? If you use Windows, this can be achieved without aiming the pointer if your mouse has dedicated buttons for the forward and back functionality. Unfortunately, if you plan to use your non-Apple budget gaming mouse with macOS, you are gonna have a bad time as macOS doesn’t support this handy feature by default.
