Terrestrial radio is on its way out and Internet Radio is on the upswing. More and more people are listening to Internet-based radio stations, and internet radio apps like TuneIn and iHeartRadio on mobile have largely given it a second wind.

On Linux, internet radio is also very popular, and most music players have the functionality to tune in to various stations. In addition to that, there are also a lot of dedicated radio browser apps. So, what are the best apps to listen to Internet Radio on Linux?

Security Tools to Check for Viruses and Malware on Linux by https://is.gd/VLyo98


Wait, Linux needs antivirus and anti-malware solutions? I thought it was immune to such things. Perhaps a bit of clarification is necessary here. First and foremost, no operating system is 100 percent immune to attack. Whether a machine is online or offline, it can fall victim to malicious code.

Although Linux is less prone to such attacks than, say, Windows, there is no absolute when it comes to security. I have witnessed, first hand, Linux servers hit by rootkits that were so nasty, the only solution was to reinstall and hope the data backup was current. I’ve been a victim of a (very brief) hacker getting onto my desktop, because I accidentally left desktop sharing running (that was certainly an eye opener). The lesson? Even Linux can be vulnerable.
