[Ubuntu] Moving from web-applications to client-application
December 12, 2010 2 Comments
I’ve been using a web browser for most of my online activities (gmail, webmail,
google calendar, google reader, web-gtalk, twitter/facebook/buzz, grooveshark/last-fm),
which turns you dependent of the application. I’m backing now to use clients for theses
tasks, getting more advantage from Ubuntu indicator-applet (gwibber, evolution, empathy,
liferea, rhythmbox), which integrates mosty of theses services in a single notifier.
Following a screenshot of a indicator applet with Liferea:
Evolution, as well as thunderbird, has digital signature/criptography feature
(you can tak a 30-day certification from CertSign). It also groups messagens from
the same thread. It still does not have an option to minimize to systray (this
feature run away a little from gnome standard), then I leave it open in another workspace.
Buzz’API is not not working for receive messages, just for send. In the next
versions they will probably solve it.
Liferea does not come with Ubuntu. It has flash support to view embeeded youtube
and has its own browser to open url inside it. You can install it from apt-get
sudo-apt get install liferea
