A short exploration into the end game of web browsers.
This article may seem to be about bashing Google but it isn't. It's just about
reflecting on the current state and how much longer we should see ourselves
So what is the Web? Well we can agree the Web is a conglomerate of standards
proposed by the W3C. So what do those standards define?

Rename files in linux / bash using mv command without typing the full name two times
# Put this function to your .bashrc file.
# Usage: mv oldfilename
# If you call mv without the second parameter it will prompt you to edit the filename on command line.
# Original mv is called when it's called with more than one argument.
# It's useful when you want to change just a few letters in a long name.
# Also see:
# - imv from renameutils
# - Ctrl-W Ctrl-Y Ctrl-Y (cut last word, paste, paste)

What is a Bootloader?

Think of your Android phone or iPhone... Once in a while the firmware on your phone needs to be updated to support new features or to fix security vulnerabilities.

The phone downloads the new firmware over WiFi or 4G. Then it restarts to install the new firmware.

Remember that firmware is just a program... A program can't possibly overwrite itself while it's running!

We solve this problem by introducing a second program... the Bootloader. When you power on your phone, the first thing it runs is the Bootloader. When the Bootloader finds a new version of the firmware that's stored on the phone, it overwrites the old firmware with the new one. Then it starts the new firmware.

# 1. First of all of course get Manjaro:
# I recommend using Etcher to copy the image to your USB:
# 2. Before installing make sure:
# - Secure boot is disabled in BIOS
# - Your SSD, HDD or NVME drive is set to AHCI instead of RAID
# - Fastboot should be on Auto or minimal, but this shouldn't matter to much
