The 'Back' Button the Most Clicked Firefox Icon

simetra Zero. (267 comments)

In Opera, it's right button down, left button click to go back, left button down, right click to go forward. Always.
It's the same in Firefox, until Firefox gets updated and the gestures plugin is broken for a few weeks until the maintainers fix it for the new firefox version.
Going to IE is a nightmare. Then it's right click, click Back on the right-click menu.
Once you get used to mouse gestures, you wonder why anyone would ever waste so much mouse mileage going up to the Back button all the time.

Time To Dump XP?

simetra Re:Dont know (1213 comments)

Why not move to Linux?
Maybe because 99+% of all significant applications used by businesses have been built for Windows.
Or do you think it would be trivial for every software vendor out there to drop everything they've been working on for the last 20 years to switch platforms?

Symantec To Acquire PGP and GuardianEdge

simetra I'm still using PGP freeware version, heh (160 comments)

I've kept a copy of the installer for the freeware version of PGP before they started getting uppity about it.
Works on XP just great. Version 8.0.2.... dunno if this version is still found in the wild....

Truly, I have seen nothing of interest on Slashdot for months. Everything on here, I see elsewhere about a week beforehand. I'm removing my Slashdot bookmarks and will likely never visit again. Yawn. Goodbye.

Excellent Karma.

They were pretty good. A gal brought them in to work. A co-worker gal, that is.
