Web server doesn't send "entire website", but documents that browsers request. For example when you access https://www.google.com/ the browser queries server for the document https://www.google.com/. The server processess the request and sends back some HTML code. Then the browser checks what the server has sent. In this case it's HTML webpage, so it ...

It's called a Tool(bar) Window. Any windows that have the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW extended style will be rendered without a system menu or minimize/maximize boxes, and a small titlebar. In Windows XP and up (that support themes), tool windows are usually rendered without rounded corners (at least with the default themes). This style is usually used for toolbars ...

I would suspect that they do. I don't believe that text-based browsers will (by default) even download resources such as images or external entities, such as fonts (if needed), scripts, etc. I did some basic testing with tcpdump trying to get this IANA page (http://www.iana.org/domains/reserved) with both lynx and then wget, and here were my results (HTTP ...

/etc/launchd.conf has never existed by default, but it does still work in 10.9. Run for example sudo nano /etc/launchd.conf. Add a line like setenv JAVA_HOME /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home. (I don't know what JAVA_HOME should actually be set to though.) Either restart or run launchctl < /etc/launchd.conf; sudo launchctl ...

This details the name of this window style and the options available in .NET; see @Synetech's excellent answer for the original purpose of this window style, the reasons it may be used for such a dialog box and the implementation in unmanaged Windows programs such as Notepad++. The window has square corners and looks like that because one of the ...

Found this interesting tidbit. It seems that this may have something to do with which application first tries to display a unicode character. Long story short, I found this bug for Chromium and a comment in the discussion suggests that this is the case and provides a workaround of putting a unicode-named file on the Windows desktop to force Windows to be ...

vim is designed for using the keyboard efficiently, not for using the mouse. thus, i find your complaint about a bad "gui" a bit awkward. if you do not like vim or if you do not want to learn how things are done in vim, thats just fine. but then you have to use another editor because vim just does not match your requirements. so, i doubt there will be any ...

Now Gnome comes with a very powerful tool for this, Disks. (Formerly known as Palimpsest; it looks like phogg's prediction was accurate).

"than configure ssh with connect.c" -> that sounds awful (if I understood you correctly) :( Are you aware of the ~/.ssh/config file possibilities? You can configure any ssh options you need there and bind them to one word. For me that's much faster than launching gui. Some examples from my file: global config - with forwarding and keepalive: Host * ...

The fundamental problem with sloppy focus on the Mac is that the menu bar is always associated with the currently focused application; if you had sloppy focus, accessing the menu bar for a specific application would be supremely difficult. Having said that, Zooom/2 does what you want, in addition to providing equivalents to the open-source window manager ...

The terminal interface works even if you don't have X available, e.g. when working over ssh from a machine where you don't want to install Emacs, or to repair your X config, or on a hardware text terminal. (For the remote case, if you can run Emacs locally, you get easier workflow and less annoying latency by using tramp, e.g., open ...

Try WinSCP, it may meet your needs, depending on what you actually want to do. You can graphically browse the file system and you can open shell windows to run commands as well.

Try Ctrl+Tab, that should do it. For the record the terminology you are referring to is called "Property Tab Navigation" ... Properties control CTRL+TAB/CTRL+SHIFT+TAB: Move through the property tabs

Judging by the commit histories, I'd say Laullón's fork.

I have never seen one single GUI tool that did everything I needed or could do from the CLI. In Linux, there's always some setting or config you'll need to tweak to get your specific setup to work correctly. If you start using a tool such as webmin (which is a great tool at that), you might run into a problem later down the road that webmin can't solve. ...

OpenBox and Fluxbox are not server management GUIs, they are Window Managers (WMs for short), they will give you some ways to enjoy the use of your mouse, but they won't provide any tool to administer a server. You will soon realize that a Gnu/Linux server is administered through text files, a graphical text editor might help, but it's easier to use the one ...
