  • We have designed a basic set of desktop icons that follow the style guidelines. The set has been created as a proof of concept for the style, but works rather well as a replacement for the base theme under GNOME and KDE.
  • If you looked at OilCan – a Greasemonkey-like browser extension for Android – and Mosembro, you’d quickly realize that they have a lot in common. Both are experimental browser extensions which run on Android, both aim to make websites friendlier, both support installable actions written in JavaScript, and both make it possible for those scripts to modify web pages and launch other applications. And since looking at OilCan’s source code has allowed me to avoid reinventing the wheel at several occasions, some pretty obvious similarities can also be spotted at the source code level.
