Legislators Call On Twitter To Ban Hamas

bartok Re:Groupthink and Peace (486 comments)

You're missing the point. The Jews and Palestinians had been coexisting peacefully in Palestine before the Zionists created the state of Israel.

Why We Love Firefox, and Why We Hate It

bartok Re:Flash (665 comments)

All browser vendors have a way to contact Adobe and report bugs and whatnot. The Flash related lock-ups have been happening for a long time now and I'm pretty sure it's the #1 reason people are moving to Chrome.

Saying that it's Flash's fault won't mean anything to the average user. They'll see a site lock up in FF and see the same site work fine in Chrome and that's all that will matter.

Forensic Experts Say Screams Were Not Zimmerman's

Sure, whenever a black man shoots a white kid, it's not unusual that he's just sent home and barely investigated.

Forensic Experts Say Screams Were Not Zimmerman's

bartok Re:In case you missed it (1046 comments)

In the course of their duties, cops are required to take pictures of evidence such as injuries. They didn't do that so it's not a stretch to conclude that they didn't have anything to work with, else they would have worked with it...

Firefox Is For "Regular" Users, Not Businesses

bartok Re:Make the best browser (555 comments)

You are as clueless as you accuse the parent poster to be. XPCOM is not used for plug-in, NPAPI is. It's the same API that was used in the Netscape days. Even MS used to use that API for early versions of IE before they moved to ActiveX in a ploy to hurt Netscape on plugin compatibility.

Firefox Is For "Regular" Users, Not Businesses

bartok Re:Make the best browser (555 comments)

You are confusing WebGL with acceleration of the web page rendering done in IE, FF and Chrome. They are completely different things. WebGL is an API web devs can use to draw 3D stuff.

Hardware acceleration is all done under the hood and doesn't use WebGL (it uses DirectX or OpenGL and is not called in any way by the web developer.

Firefox 4 Released!

bartok Re:Still got issues.... (554 comments)

I had some GUI issues when I used it with my FF3.6 profile. I created a new profile and imported the old one's bookmarks and everything worked.

To create a new profile, run it from the command line like this:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -profilemanager

Firefox 4 Released!

bartok Re:Slow! -- XP user? (554 comments)

This is not true. FF4 uses DirectX9 on XP to accelerate the compositing / rendering of web content.

The only time when it uses software rendering is when your graphics drivers are not recent enough, and that's true for both XP and Win Vista / 7. the one thing Vista and 7 have over XP is support DirectWrite, which is part of DirectX 10 so of course, doesn't work on XP.
