Google Chrome on Ubuntu

If your using Ubuntu you can now start using Chrome, or Chromium at least, which is based on it. Daily builds of Chromium can be got from here.

You’ll need to add the following repositories to get Chromium:

Note: Substitute interpid with jaunty or hardy as needed!

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

Then you can then install it by opening a terminal and do the following command:

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Of course this is still in Pre-Alpha so make sure to keep another browser installed! ;)

E.ggtimer - Online Timer

eggtimer.jpg

This website is a little gem I came across last night. Will take and countdown from any time, given in words or figures. :) Even when open in a tab you can still see the timer continue to countdown! Have to say I like the use of these “subdomain” websites!

Go to E.ggtimer.com ->
