Glances is an open-source, real-time Linux server monitoring system that aims at providing as much information as possible in minimal space. Glances is like a top command, but more refined, with many more features & much more real-time information on your Linux system.

Glances provides information regarding memory, CPU, Disk IO, file system, uptime, processes, interfaces, alerts, & many other system metrics.

One of the best features of Glances is that it can work in server/client mode. We can perform remote monitoring of the systems using a web interface or through terminal/CLI, & we can also export stats to a file.

KDE Frameworks 5.84 Released with Expandable Tooltips, Performance Improvements

Mon, 07/12/2021 - 15:00

KDE Frameworks 5.84 introduces a new user interface feature called expandable tooltips. This adds a “Press Shift for more” label to the tooltips in KDE apps that use the KXMLGui and Kirigami frameworks to display the longer text of that tooltip. The development is a replacement for the “What’s This?” feature.

This release also improves the clearing of global shortcuts for Plasma applets, improves the performance of SVG lookups in the Plasma desktop for a more responsive experience using fewer resources, fixes the most common crash in the Plasma calendar, and improves the appearance of tooltip shadows in the Plasma desktop.

Mozilla Firefox 90 Is Now Available for Download, Removes Built-In FTP Support

Mon, 07/12/2021 - 07:00

The biggest change in the Mozilla Firefox 90 release is the deprecation of FTP (File Transfer Protocol) support. Firefox follows in the footsteps of Google Chrome/Chromium, and other web browsers, to no longer allow access to ftp:// links.

Mozilla started deprecating FTP support since Firefox 88, but users were able to re-enable the feature by setting the network.ftp.enabled option from false to true in about:config. But starting with the Firefox 90 release, all FTP code is gone forever and can’t be re-enabled, which means that you’ll have to use a special app to access your FTP sites.
