Pulkit Chandak is a Linux enthusiast and has been using and experimenting with open source software and hardware too since a long time. He is a huge admirer of open source software and wants to ventilate it to all around him. He is interested in reviewing and writing tutorials on Linux and its many distributions.

Text files are an essential and integral part of any given computer system. Configuration files, programming scripts, and even documents created by users are all simple text files. Also though now there are several document formats, in the initial days of Linux, there were mostly plain text files in use. Consequently, there had to be several ways of reading text files in Linux.
One great thing about Linux based systems is the variety of choices that the users have to choose from as per their liking.

I think we can all agree on the fact that the web browser is an integral part of our Linux systems, or any computer system, for that matter. We have had several fulfilling options for browsing the web, like Firefox, Brave, Vivaldi, Tor, etc. and they have worked pretty well, but also pretty much in the same way, except for Tor, which is much better for anonymity.
Do you send an image to one of your friends through an online service? The image that you sent is actually uploaded to a central server of the service that you are using. Your friend basically gets a link to that file and can see it or download it from there. Is your file safe and who owns it now? This is how decentralization and p2p networking affects what you do on the web.
