  1. I love the Colbert Report :DYoutube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_foXuZh6Fo
  2. Its not complete though. It's missing Ctrl + Shift + T to undo the most recently closed tab. I implemented it but we didn't have time to make it noticeable, the only hint that the shortcut is there is in the help file which of course nobody reads.Also, don't forget backspace and shift+ backspace to go forward or back, except if you're on Linux in which case it will go page up for parity with GNOME applications (worst decision ever IMO). To change this, go to about:config and change browser.backspace_action to 0.
  3. 1) is normally caused by extensions that don't clean up after themselves. 2.0 is much better than 1.5 when it comes to memory and the 3.0 developer builds are MUUUUCH more memory efficient.2) sounds quite weird. Does it happen on all sites or just one? If it is just one site then it could be calling the window.focus() command.3) the accesskey behaviour was removed for 2.0 because it was really broken. In order to prevent delays of 2.0 they just made it so that Firefox actions require Alt+* and webpage accesskeys require Alt+Shift+*. I hope that before 3.0 ships this will be fixed.
  4. This finally brings a meaning to "Where do you want to go today?"
  5. I think you should all try It fixed about 180 bugs with most of them being crashers and some of them security problems so maybe you should try again.Take a look at this monster list of fixes. I wish 2.0 wasn't so rushed...http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=494984
  6. I know of a Ballmer pic so bad that I wouldn't be allowed to post it here. Of course, if you're curious...
  7. Nightly SVN builds of Beryl precompiled in .deb goodness http://wiki.beryl-project.org/index.php?ti...hots_Repository
  8. I completely agree. I actually use Kubuntu rather than Ubuntu since I prefer KDE over GNOME. The latest version runs on AIGLX by default so I could set up Beryl. Beryl is absolutely godly and I'm getting fluid frame rates on an Intel Integrated Graphics :thumbsup:I just wish Kubuntu didn't give KDE apps a monopoly on my system on first setup. Seeing "K" everywhere in the start menu will make you think you've gone insane. That's my only gripe, and even then the access to Ubuntu's amazing repository more than makes up for it. I recommend Kubuntu over Ubuntu since KDE is the far better DE.
  9. KDE is definitely the one for me. I found KDE's modal dialogs much better than GNOME's. Just the interface and usability in general, KDE beats GNOME without question.
  10. My guess is you've used the wrong distro. I've been using the latest version of Kubuntu. Ever since I started I could set up everything from GUI programs, if at all since most of my stuff was auto-detected anyway. I could get photos off my camera just as easy as in Windows.I had much less trouble setting up stuff in Linux than in Windows, it took me a day to track down the drivers for my hardware on my friend's computer. Before then I had no sound or net connection and was stuck in 640x480. Yuck.
  11. I have. I have heard from various Mozilla blogs that you should never install Firefox from a binary package. This is because the package creator usually adds some code to Firefox which will make it slower or more buggy. Mozilla has had to close a lot of invalid bugs on Bugzilla because the bug was the fault of the package maker, not Mozilla.I'd definitely go with the .tar.gz.
  12. I think that they are waiting for and its plethora of fixes to land before they start pushing it to non-early adopters.However, a was necessary anyway since the previous update system could only handle minor updates, now it can handle 2.0 when they decide to release it via update.
  13. Are you SERIOUSLY that concerned? All you have to do is get it from a mass download site like CNet's Download.com, that's what I do. The only piece of software I've paid for on my machine is Windows, and I hardly use that anymore. I run a freeware antivirus called Avast, but haven't had a single alert yet.Back on topic, regarding the quote. This isn't the first time such questionable quotations were heard from Microsoft. Haven't Microsoft staff ever heard of humility?"We have no intention of shipping another bloated OS and shoving it down the throats of our users.""The Internet? We are not interested in it.""Microsoft Products are Generally Bug Free.""640 K ought to be enough for anybody.""The Linux environment is more insecure than Microsoft. This is an issue the industry needs to be aware of""Linux is not in the public domain. Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches.""We are going to cut off their [Netscape's] air supply. Everything they're selling, we're going to give away for free."And my favourite from Mister Billy G:"There are people who don't like capitalism, and there are people who don't like PCs, but there's no one who likes the PC who doesn't like Microsoft." Microsoft staff need to think before they speak, especially given their status.
  14. Call me paranoid but there is one thing that bothers me.I foresee a Vista virus that will force Vista into RFM. By adding something like this, Microsoft has made it much, much easier for Virus writers to cause havoc. All they have to do is fool Vista's WGA and all **** breaks loose.Knowing Microsoft's abysmal track record of secure programming and relying on closed-source as their only means of defense, I'm worried at this quite plausible prospect.
