Somehow I managed to upgrade my text editor usage somewhat so that I can now do stuff in vim almost as well as in nano.[1] The best tutorial is vimtutor.

Next I am ready to try Emacs evil mode (i.e. vim keybindset in Emacs). Wait, Emacs can browse the web? And by such an obvious keybind as 'Alt+x eww'? This find is long overdue! Yet another webbrowser to play with...
Still writing this in nano though.

Yes. Strictly speaking, a black hole is black but is not a hole.  :rolleyes:

But -- strictly speaking -- a black hole is more of a dark star than a hole, isn't it? ;)

Strictly speaking, by definition, no hole can be photographed; just the stuff around it can. :sherlock:

Scientists say this is a photo of a black hole.



The image reveals the black hole at the centre of Messier 87 [1], a massive galaxy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster. This black hole resides 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the Sun [2].

Now you can set the tabs-selection view in Samsung browser to list mode. Like this.


In comparison, MS Edge on Android uses the tiles view, reminiscent of Win 8, which is a bit comfier actually on touchscreen.


Everywhere else, Android uses (and Android apps use) the coverflow style to flip tabs or open apps or such. I am not too strongly against it, but it would be great to be able to configure it away to list or tiles.
