[TechRepublic] Using your browser as a terminal

TechRepublic Australia Wrapper

TechRepublic Member | May 30, 2012

Editor's note
Hello again. We'll start this week with the fun and patriotic: if you haven't seen it already, do yourself a favour and watch the much-criticised Collins class submarine take on the US Navy, and win. Users of PuTTY should check out the browser extensions in our browser-as-a-terminal article, even just to poke around at the source for educational purposes. In other news, an iOS rookie has shown that you don't need to be an Apple guru to take out hackathons. One piece of housekeeping: this will be the last Wrapper for a fortnight, as I will be renewing my acquaintance with the fine people of Canada. See you again on my return! --Chris
