As a retro journey to Linux excursions-gone-by, I am blogging about a pleasant surprise I experienced with Opera (the web browser) in Ubuntu Linux (which I have previously blogged about).

It seems that Opera has out-performed other browsers on my Linux desktop (Firefox, Chrome). In terms of media players (extensions/add-ons that play in the browser window), Opera is, well, a pleasant surprise. It has proven again and again that it makes playing media on different websites possible when other browsers fail.

Another key feature which has proven its functionality in this context is Lastpass. Opera installs this tremendous add-on for you, once you have visited the appropriate page and clicked on the easy-to-follow links and popup boxes. With the other browsers, you need a certificate in Linux-based file management to install this and other add-ons programs. :(

Well, that's all for now. Listening to The Antipodean Hour is one of my favorite occasional Preterist Pastimes.
