Open Source Software

The basic idea behind open source is very simple: When programmers can read, redistribute, and modify the source code for a piece of software, the software evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing.

Future of Web Browsing

  • As Open Source Takes Over…

    • What’s going to happen?

    • Will closed coded browsers simply mimic their counterparts?
