In Pictures: 13 hot new open source projects

Browser-based toolkits, add-ons to old favorites, tools programmers will love -- here are the most promising projects emerging from the open source community today

CasperJS and PhantomJS Testing your code with unit tests is easy when you're working inside the code base and it's not too hard to jump outside if you're writing a command line tool. It's a bit different if you're creating a website -- it's just not so easy to simulate a user browsing and clicking. CasperJS offers a collection of helpful functions that make it simpler to browse through a website, fill out forms, click on links, and capture some screenshots as you're doing it. CasperJS does all of this with PhantomJS, a headless Webkit engine in the core so you know it's going to come close to emulating Chrome, Safari and an iPhone. Both are released with the MIT license.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
