I think Mike's right about the dangers, although I suspect Google will have fixed this by the time it's out of Beta, they just want as many people to try out the beta as possible. The danger of...

But is it optimisation? Isn't it just speeding up any and all JavaScript? When you say "regular pages that have script. " I can't imagine that it would slow them down much, because they don't have...

I thought SkyDrive was a good name, but if "Sky" is the new "Live" it will loose it's appeal. Why does Microsoft have to be so inconsistent with their product naming. What does SkyDrive have to do...

The annoying thing is there's no way to override these built in shortcuts if you want to use them for something else.

"FireFox add-ins are based on XUL which runs in a scripting language and have the same permissions as javascript (safer). A potential bad FireFox add-in can do less damage than ActiveX malware." Not...

You don't need to hold down shift when you right-click. The Open With option is always available.

A nothing story about three nothing stories. This must be the writer's equivalent of inspecting your own navel.

I don't think the browser will ever be the interface of the OS, I can't imagine accessing my file system through Firefox, or IE for that matter. They're too bloated an interface. What I can imagine...

I wonder what affect this could have on any Facebook/Microsoft deal? I could argue it either way.

@tayme - "And 50 million teenagers are gonna care why???" it's not about the current 50 million teenagers that are already using myspace, facebook, bebo etc, it's about the next 50 million teenagers...

This is big, this is game changing, this is the beginning of the end for myspace and facebook, because Google is removing the biggest thing they had in their favour. The network effect. I was...

I was curious about the the "Who is Paul Thurrott?" pingback so I clicked on the link, hehe, Paul's sarcasm has confused an Estonian. "I like to listen Security Now podcast and also Windows Weekly...

How ironic that this was released on Earth day. A day for thinking about the environment and they release something for wasting CPU cycles.

"because a 99.99% uptime allows for only 30 seconds of downtime per year" No, that's 52½ minutes. Six nines (99.9999%) is 30 seconds, it says so in Joel's essay.

They even admit what I've said above in the report: "Note that individual metrics can even be mutually exclusive. For example, vendor policy could mandate a single security update per year which...

Number of vulnerabilities isn't a good metric. How many days were there known vulnerabilities with no fix would be much more useful. It's just that it's not in Microsoft's interest to publicise that...

Adobe Media Player plays FLVs quite well. (you can seek in them, which is something you can't do in Miro). Although if you have more than a few local files in it's Personal Files section it can get...

It appears that all my problems were with streaming content with ads; downloaded content plays fine and remembers your position when you return to it. It's actually a better flv player than Miro...

Closing and reopening the player brought the episode back and I was able to finish watching it. After some experimentation it appears that if you stop watching an episode and return to it without it...

Hmph, I'm not sure I like the method they've used for inserting adverts. You can only drag the progress slider up to the "bump" where the next advert is and you have to watch the advert to get access...

Is it worth complaining to whoever runs the affiliate program they're using in the ads?

The problem here is that installing Safari is the *default* choice. It doesn't matter that they are given the choice to not install it because a significant number of users just hit install on these...
