Firefox 4.0 flashes lusty leg at Windows lovers

Stop

Dear Mozilla

Dear Mozilla

Please stop pi55ing around and wasting time on the way Firefox looks. Instead, please spend your time plugging security holes, stopping memory leaks, speeding up the browsing process, lightening the load on the host system, making it start much faster and be totally compliant with standards. If I want it to look different to standard, I will add a theme.

In addition, please build in the following add-ons as standard functionality:

- AdBlock Plus

- X-Marks

- NoScript

Thanks

Everyone.

Vodafone and T-Mobile: 1800MHz bad, 900MHz good

Virgin media

If Virgin Media are piggy-backing off T-Mobile, wouldn't they be in the mix to buy at least some of T-Mobile? Yes, I know they're saddled with £500 quadrillion of debt, but stil...

Low spec Linux - WHY?

Why do all PC manufacturers spec their Linux installed boxes lower than the equivilent Windoze offering, then only shave a few pounds off the price? Why can't we just have the same HW spec as Windoze?

Sure, Linux might run better on lower spec HW than Windoze, but that doesn't mean it has to be limited by it? How about more disk space for all that data, and more memory to help the O/S out?

Or are they ALL tied in to some non-MS hardware performance tax?

And, why is it so SO hard to find a Linux box on manufactuers on-line stores? - anyone followed the link from the OpenSolaris website to check out the spec of Toshiba laptops with OpenSolaris pre-installed? The Tosh website claims ignorance!

Sky ices Picnic, blames Ofcom

Alert

Cable?

If Ofcom were to allow Sky One to be broadcast over Freeview (albeit on subscription) wouldn't that set a precedent for Sky having to allow VirginMedia to carry Sky One as well?

If a channel is available to most ^H^H^H^H a large percentage of UK via the aerial, where does that leave me in my flat with only cable or a crappy internal aerial available?

I just wanna be able to watch Lost, IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?
