More Fundamentals - Lazarus Form Recovery

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Greetings
Lately I have been attempting to make sure as many as possible are aware of fundamental apps helpful on any forum like here at OCN. The first one was the Cool Tool screenfetch thread useful for viewing and reporting numerous system stats so important when asking for help.

Today's is probably known by many here but almost surely has escaped the notice of some and it can be a very good friend. Have you ever begun a post and for whatever reason took long enough that when you tried to actually post you were asked to log back in and Bam! all your hard work is gone?

All Mozilla-based browsers like Firefox can benefit from an addon called LAZARUS . It's really great with no extra icons required since it loads directly in your right click context menu. You can control how much history it keeps and each is labelled by name with topmost being the most recent and with just a single select click Voila! your entire post is recovered. There are many uses besides that most basic one but I think that alone is sufficient to have it.

Good Fortune all.

Hmm I may have to try it out. I use chromium but definitely not opposed to switching it up.

seems pretty useful but posting it in the *nix subforum?

Chrome and Chromium are Mozilla based.. In fact several Mozilla employees were head-hunted for the project. i haven't tried it on "based" yet but likely will.

Besides the fact that there is a specific compatibility issue for many addons and Lazarus works perfectly on Linux Firefox, I generally do little to support non Linux platforms and primarily concern myself with the Linux Community. Mac and Windows people can fend for themselves.

You and anyone concerned with Windows and Mac are quite welcome to link this thread or start their own. My only concern with Mac and Windows is opposing posts dumbed down to "Windows sucks!" and/or "Mac is overpriced gear bought by elitist hipsters who pay dearly for the privilege of making a 'fashion statement'". They obviously are success stories and each has their own demographic niche and do those jobs at those levels rather well and neither require nor get much from me beyond that respect and recognition.

I see now. I thought this was just some browser addon post, it wasn't clear to me that you actually created this. Nice idea for an addon! Just wondering, do the incompatibility issues you mention have to do with the crypto?

Like I said I learn something new everyday.. I had no idea chrome was based off Mozilla.

I've never seen any reason to believe that Chrome/Chromium are based on Firefox. Literally nothing in them is alike in any way. The engine, the plugin system, everything is different.

Yes, they had some Firefox devs, but I've never seen anything about it being Firefox based.

Ummm no Lazarus is not my project and essentially is "just a browser addon" but there are addons that only work with Windows' Firefox, others like Silverlight/Pipelight in some netherworld,etc so I think it is cool that Lazarus has no hoops to jump through for Linux and I found it and have relied on it more than twice exactly because of OCN. I would venture a guess that crypto can be an issue, not to mention simple encoding conventions (LUA, Latex, etc ) but people are often surprised at how smart Linux is at guessing file-types even once extensions have been omitted or changed. Just browse through your /tmp directory with a file manager set to "Preview" if you haven't already.

Bottom line is I'm certain many OCN subscribers will find it useful and if the Linux Community has taught us anything it is nobody can know it all and so knowing where to find answers is paramount and "enough eyes" covers a host of ills 'cuz it's all about communication and access.

It is my understanding that alpha versions had considerable debt to The Mozilla Way but that it was planned all along to become decidedly unique and hopefully better. Most people think they have succeeded in some important ways as IIRC Chrome/Chromium is widely considered the most scaleable browser, not a small feat.
