Mozilla Labs: the URL Bar Has To Go

ChienAndalu Re:Following Google to Stupidity (591 comments)

The name of the page is most often on a prominent spot on the page, most likely in the upper left corner.

If I want to copy the url, a context menu action "copy current sites url" would suffice.

If I for some reason would like to check the url, which as I said is a bad way to check validity, I would be happy with pressing a key to display the address bar temporarily.

And by the way, the computer industry *is* right. You need to now that the sid is 2185238 and the cid is 36246266 for the current url as much as you need to know the heap size and the stack content of your browser. You really do only want to click the shiny.

Mozilla Labs: the URL Bar Has To Go

ChienAndalu Re:Does for Phishers what hiding ext did for Troja (591 comments)

The address bar has always sucked for phishing prevention. How many normal people really register the difference between facebook.com faceboook.com facebook.cn facebook.com.cn and so on?

Mozilla Labs: the URL Bar Has To Go

ChienAndalu Re:Following Google to Stupidity (591 comments)

The serial id is relevant for probably less than 1% of web users. Even as a slashdot user, I really don't need to see the url at the moment. I only use the bar when I want to go to a different site.

Imagining the CLI For the Modern Machine

ChienAndalu Re:Advantages of CLI (317 comments)

If there is a picture in the terminal, I imagine that to be the program output. If I am not seeing the real program output, what use is this terminal anyway.

Imagining the CLI For the Modern Machine

ChienAndalu Re:Advantages of CLI (317 comments)

Because then it is not the greatest common denominato. All your other tools want text as input, not those shiny pictures.

Look at the piped commands here: http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/browse

Tell me how this is supposed to work if there is a picture in the pipe.

Imagining the CLI For the Modern Machine

ChienAndalu Re:Advantages of CLI (317 comments)

Exactly. I'm all for getting rid of terminfo, termcap, color escape sequences and all that crap, but text is still the best common denominator that works well for humans and programs.

Google Cuts Chrome Page Load Times In Half w/ SPDY

ChienAndalu Re:BAD (310 comments)

How is it a fake way? SPDY really is faster. Also there is nothing proprietary about this so your Microsoft comparison is wrong too.

You can still buy the dvds and watch them. You can't tell TV stations how to do their programming.

Quite the opposite. Look up Bayesian inference.
