10 Best Ubuntu 13.04 Features

Who else is excited about the release of the world's most popular Linux distribution - Ubuntu 13.04.

What can you expect from this release? Unlike previous releases, Ubuntu 13.04 brings about a few dramatic changes, but mainly some needed polish and performance boosts to the system.

1. New Window Snap Animation

Windows snapping was a really popular feature in the Windows operating systems and its handy to quickly display two applications side-by-side without overlapping.

For 13.04 a bit of attention has been given to the animation shown on screen to tell you that ‘you’re about to snap’. Developers have changed its appearance from that of a generic orange box spreading outwards to a semi-transparent copy of the window about to be snapped.

Chrome Theme: Uta no Prince-sama

Here is another Chrome theme created by me as requested by pumpkin_so77. It is a Uta no Prince-sama theme for the fangirls (and the occasional guy). Hmm...not much to describe here. It's a simply shades of gray on a white background with the characters from the anime on the bottom-right. I've set it so the character's head don't get chopped off by the 'Most Visited' panel on the New Tab page. Enjoy!


Jun Fukuyama's 4th album teaser video revealed

This promo song isn't as impactful as I would have liked.
