The second most popular web browser in the world, Firefox, is a beautiful, but heavy machine. Its biggest attraction are tabs, flexible bookmarks and RSS management, and extensions. However for people who are still using systems with no abundance of main memory it can be a pain intensively using Firefox throughout a day or longer. It is just that memory hungry. So some people have been looking at alternatives such as Epiphany, Galeon, Konqueror, or even the lightest but arguably ugliest and least featureful among them, Dillo. But as it usually happens, out of nowhere comes another alternative, one which may be hitting the right balance that many people are looking for. It is NGLayout (Gecko)-based Kazehakase (made by Japanese developers).
Its aim is to be lightweight (small memory footprint) and yet modern, user friendly, fully functional and innovative at that. And in its early releases it seems to be accomplishing just that.

One of the best things about Free Software of which GNU/Linux is a flagship is its community and the willingness of so many people in it to help each other make their GNU/Linux and Free Software experience better. If something doesn't work, if you don't know how to do something, if you don't know what software you need for a task you want to do, whatever issue you have there is a great chance someone in the community will be not only able, but happily willing to help. On Nuxified.org we are about to celebrate this trait throughout the month February of this year, in the form of a competition.
Vista is out and the community of GNU/Linux enthusiasts are up on their feet trying to persuade everyone that instead of going with the flow and upgrading to Vista, we should upgrade to GNU/Linux. This wont stop any time soon. In fact, it probably wont stop until GNU/Linux either withers away or dominates the world. The fact is there are more and more of so called GNU/Linux "fanboys" and enthusiasts every day, not less and less. Expect numbers to grow constantly.
