Sometimes it takes a bit of time spent on Internet searches, but if you can think of a task, it can probably be done from the command line.read more

The term “browser wars” typically refers to Microsoft’s attempts to
dominate the World Wide Web with its Internet Explorer browser in the
1990s. That effort was thwarted by antitrust efforts and the rise of the

dominance of Chrome and, it would seem, the imminent removal of Chromium
from many Linux distributions.
