Thread: Cool applications

    Re:Cool applications

    Also, I forgot to mention that Dillo is an awesome light weight browser. It functions awesomely.. It is as per it's advertisement.. VERY fast.. I am using it.. It's great. If you have a low-end system, this is an awesome one. for more info. The only problem right now I have is some cookie issue that will probably change...sooner or later...

    P.S: Also, this is default browser with Damn Small Linux.

    I like to use ProZilla to download large files. You can stop & resume later from where it left off.

    ProZilla is a download accelerator for Linux which gives you a 200% to 300% improvement in your file downloading speeds.

    Seconded on Prozilla. Whenever I sustain huge download speeds (eg. 500 kilobytes / second, ie eating up all available bandwidth) like with bittorrent my cable modem craps out and won't work until you cycle the power. Prozilla lets me connect to a server and get around 4x40 = 160 kilobytes / second so I can grab an ISO in a few minutes and not have to constantly be cycling my cable modem.

    Hooray for Prozilla 8)

    Prozilla is my favorite download manager... use it all the time for big files, that is.

    I tried ProZilla for downloading an iso. (sysresccd) And Firefox was downloading at 40-50 KB/S. I downloaded ProZilla and did a proz <url> thingy and it downloaded at 95 KB/S . It's great..

    Also, another good app that I liked: Poink.

    Poink is used for TCP / Pinging (which I needed to do on my machine ) and Poink worked great. It is written in C. It rocks.

    It is awesome...

    Found 1 New App.

    I needed voice recognition in Linux:

    It is entirely written in perl. Needs Tk to be installed. It's a GUI. And it works well.

    Festival is the other way from what shebang said about speech. This makes your computer talk. There are perl bindings for it.

    I one day plan to use this in combination with a winmodem and a telephone line

    CGI (Or just run from the command line) to generate HTML pages of man pages.

    Very nifty and nice looking and easy to setup.

    Re:Cool applications

    xv is not supported on some distros due to Licensing Issues.

    So a good replacement is qiv. It's fully Open Source and works well.

    Quick Image Viewer

    VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.
