If facebook disappeared tomorrow, I wouldn't bat an eyelid.
If google disappeared tomorrow, the internet would be as painful as it was in 1999 again. Anyone remember how much better google search was than everything else?

Why not just...
Why couldn't they have done it the other way round - provide a browser (Chrome) that runs a given list of websites (crappy old intranet sites, list provided by network admin) in something like IE tab, and everything else in Chrome.
Those that want it can install it, those that don't, don't. And it gives people a way out of IE6 while making their old sites still work.
Blah blah title
Is that a hint of sarcasm?

PDF plugins that run directly in the browser are the devil's spawn.
If I want to download and read a PDF, I want to do it in a proper PDF reader, not some bastardised helfbreed that takes over my browser, stops it responding for minutes while it loads all its chuff, and doesn't have half the functions of a standalone PDF reader.
First plugin I install in Firefox (after AdBlock), is the PDFDownload one that stops the Adobe's bloody acrobat reader taking over my page.
What are oracle doing?
The security sandbox of Java is supposed to be one of its main selling points...
Pull your finger out and fix it, you bellends.
