This week started strong with the release of the Firefox 100 web browser, which finally enables GTK overlay scrollbars on Linux systems by default, a new Nitrux monthly update with the latest KDE goodies and a few surprises, as well as the Tails 5.0 OS for anonymous web surfing and communication, a major update based on Debian GNU/Linux 11.

Talking about Debian GNU/Linux 11, it received a major Linux kernel security update that addressed 19 security vulnerabilities.
