    It must be something strange about your setup. My Firefox works well. This is Ubuntu 14 and Firefox I'm using right now. This morning I loaded 93 web comics in tabs all at the same time, and it...

    It seems that the thing to do is to show that the library is useful and can be implemented well. Get it into Boost first, then try making it part of the C++ Standard.

    I just checked Boost and...

    I so wish that Linux had a reasonable way to use the newest C++ compilers on older systems.

    It is a nightmare making a library in C++11 that will compile and link against software built with older...

    That is not the way I recall it.

    Yes, the first so-called "Fair" scheduler was written by CK. However, Ingo Molnár took the idea of a fair scheduler and wrote his very own version of it using a...

    This is unreliable and unsupported but the last I remember reading, BFS was only good for 4 cores or less. After 4 cores the CFS scheduler wins everything.

    Since even my phone has 4 cores and my...

    It is entirely possible for widely used library code to have subtle bugs. Popular ones are aliasing bugs. Whenever there is a pointer cast, view it with the utmost suspicion. Sometimes library...

    As long as they don't run into code which reads its own code for integer values or indirect jump pointers; or jumps back into itself at misaligned offsets. Some malware and DRM coding does junk like...

    USB is too complicated to rely on in a debugging situation.

    Plus, my laptops at least seem to run into weird problems in the firmware. Linux doesn't set it up right or something, and on resume it...

    I almost always have those weird regressions with suspend too. In fact, it happens with Windows too. Windows 7 could suspend my desktop to RAM but Windows 8.1 randomly fails to wake up the disks.

    That used to be true. More and more game developers are using things like Intel's Cilk or TBB which will smoothly spread work to any number of cores.

    AMD's cores are full speed at integer math. As far as I know they only share the FPU for floating point.

    I think AMDs end goal with this architecture is to replace the FPU and all MMX/SSE...

    Obviously they had a programmer who was interested in Android support. That doesn't mean he or she is qualified to write a DX9 state tracker.

    Maybe you could do it.

    It doesn't. In order to be "fair" to this weird claim of extreme "lightyears" speed difference I'm running 92 tabs in Firefox and 92 tabs in Chrome just to see. My daily web comics load actually. I...

    Still not seeing it. Possibly you have less than my 8 GB of RAM and you're getting memory swapped out to disk? Or it might be a difference in settings. I have some customized Firefox settings such as...

    I do on Ubuntu 12.04, on a Dell XPS laptop. Firefox seems just as fast as Chrome is. Maybe I'm missing something?

    Gnome upset me so much. In the 2.x days it worked fine with 150 dpi. Their ridiculous nonsense with forcing 96 dpi didn't do anything useful and it is incredibly hard to turn off.

    Well, Firefox built for Windows needs a 64-bit build system because the linking (which includes LTO) takes more than 3GB of RAM. That's with Microsoft's compiler, but I bet GCC will have similar...
