distro.tools: Scripts for lazy Linux users

Today I want to share one of my own projects: distro.tools. distro.tools is a small but growing collection of scripts to manage your Linux distribution. Currently most of the scripts are made to install the latest versions of specific software on your computer, but it’s planned to include scripts for all different kind of needs. Some time ago (actually many months ago), I found myself trying to automate the setup of my laptop, in case I need to reinstall everything.

Did you ditch Chrome yet? Don't switch to Brave though.

There is some discussion recently about another evil move by Google. Google plans to deprecate (and remove) an API in it’s webbrowser Chrome, that is used by many ad-blocking addons. Of course they are ignoring voices from the community! Only enterprise customers will be able to use this API for custom development. Is it a surprise at all, that Google wants to do that? Google (Alphabet) is one of the biggest (ad) companies.
