Chrome Becoming World's Second Most Popular Web Browser

nicedream Re:And still... (511 comments)

Firefox NEEDS to add support for multi-threading or having each tab run as a separate process. Faster javascript benchmarks are great, but with multiple tabs open, Chrome gives you a faster seat of the pants experience.

Firefox 4 the Last Big Release From Mozilla

nicedream Re:Bad Title (236 comments)

The OP is saying that the way the headline is phrased makes it sound as though this is the end of the Firefox browser.
"BSD is dying" is a meme that has been floating around for years.

Do Firefox Users Pay More For Car Loans?

nicedream Just tried this out. My experience... (371 comments)

I cleared all cookies from Chrome, Opera, and FF, and went to

Chrome and Opera both gave me rates of 3.5%.
Firefox gave me 2.7%.

I proxy my FF sessions through a ssh tunnel to a personal Linux server I have, which is located in Michigan. So to see if that had an effect on it, I cleared cookies again and then disabled the proxy settings. Restarted FF and went to the URL again. This time I got a rate of 2.3%.

I went back to Opera and Chrome, deleted cookies and restarted again. Now Opera was 2.3%, and Chrome was 3.1%. Did it again, and Opera was still at 2.3%, and Chrome had dropped to 2.7%. It's as if this site is just coming up with totally random numbers.

The State of Linux IO Scheduling For the Desktop?

nicedream Re:CK patches for the kernel are always updated... (472 comments)

Really, the ease of compiling packages from the Arch User Repository is what makes Arch Linux so nice. Download the tar.gz, extract, and run makepkg.
In fact the new 2.6.36-ck kernel is already in the AUR/

Firefighters Let House Burn Because Owner Didn't Pay Fee

nicedream Re:What about the neighbor? (2058 comments)

Even more ridiculous. So they not only were on the scene, but they also had their hoses out and were spraying water, just not *at* the fire.

Firefighters Let House Burn Because Owner Didn't Pay Fee

nicedream What about the neighbor? (2058 comments)

He *did* pay his $75 fee, but they didn't do anything until the fire had actually spread to his house. I'd be pissed if I were him. They wouldn't do anything to *prevent* his house from catching fire in the first place? It doesn't take a genius to figure out that uncontrolled fires usually spread.
