Firefox 57: Good news? It's nippy. Bad news? It'll also trash your add-ons

mscha

Partial list of “legacy” extensions I'm using: Context Search X, FireGestures, Flagfox, LastPass, Open With, Status-4-Evar, Tab Groups, and perhaps most importantly, Tab Mix Plus.

I've no reason to stay with Firefox when all of these stop working. Goodbye Firefox, hello Vivaldi!

Mozilla whips out Rusty new Firefox Quantum (and that's a good thing)

mscha

And the collateral damage is customizability. No more add-ons like Tab Mix Plus or Status-4-Evar.

Might as well switch to Chrome, then.

(Actually, I already switched to Vivaldi. Not quite as customizable as Firefox used to be, but stil much better than Chrome or new Firefox.)

Or just use Cygwin already.

Works just fine, you can start Windows applications from the command-line, df and top work, etcetera.

Microsoft Surface Book: Shiny slab with a Rottweiler grip on itself

> and weirdly, an Alt Graph (Alt Gr) key, a throwback to pre-GUI IBM PCs.

No it isn't. It's still very much in use as a modifier key on international keyboard layouts.
