Mozilla tames Firefox tab monster with Candy

Daniel Free

agreed

its a slow fiddly way of opening a new window for a new group of tabs.

either ctrl+n and start your new set of tabs or shift click a link.

UK data breach incidents on the rise

Daniel Free
WTF?

imperipercentric ?

"Seven in ten UK organisations experienced a data breach incident over the last year, up from 60 per cent in the previous year."

Johnson presses for haste on foreigner IDs

Daniel Free

young people will love this as a proof of age

especialy once its cracked wide open so they can edit it at will from a home PC.

no more need for a fake ID, just alter a real one.

Stop

that companies should be required to have a hand written acceptance letter before they are allowed to share data with any "partner" sites or businesses.

Great Australian Firewall dead in the water?

Daniel Free

let he who is without sin ....

cast the 1st stone.

"The Australian Sex Party exists to represent the interests of businesses who make money from the exploitation and degradation of women"

whereas the church has such an exceptional history of treating women as equals...

now what was the name of the 1st female pope again ?

Debian 'Lenny' arrives: bigger, longer, searchable

Daniel Free

been a while since i used a pure debian install. but there are repositories categorised as non-free where you can grab packages like firefox etc that dont conform strictly to the debian policies.

UK gov unleashes biometric IDs

Daniel Free
Stop

boost to underage drinking forseeable ?

so given that these basicly use the same security as the passport chips which were broken wide open a while back

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article4467098.ece

using pretty cheap off the shelf hardware.

so its certainly not going to be long before as AC pointed out stores will start using these as proof of age cards, and why would teenagers need a fake ID when they can edit their real one so easily ?

so please stop these ID cards, "wont somebody think of the children!!" :)

Ask.com preps Google-like* malware warnings

Daniel Free

Warning this site bundles ask.com malware

should i start expecting this warning on a few of the "freeware" sites if i ever search through ask ?

i installed a tiny app the other day for managing permisions and it bundled the ask.com malware with no warnings, its the 1st time i have had something like that sneak past me in about 5 years (i dont run protective software) so i was pretty pissed off.

moderately easy to remove and i actualy learnt more about what i can alter with regards to firefox's URL bar via about config. now i can load tinyurl's much faster by just typing them there :)
