    This reminds me of something the Japanese prime minister said to their central bank last year. It was to the effect of "if you don't do what I say, I will take away your independece".

    The latest versions of Mozilla appear to conflict with my anti-virus software, but I find that hard to believe as others use VIPRE and have no issues with Firefox.

    I have not upgraded Mozilla since 24.0 and my networking situation might be different or "more locked down" than newer versions of Mozilla can tolerate.

    Funny, when Feudalism was all the rage, some people used to say the same thing...

    Nice write up - thanks for sharing. Here's another one you might like by Andreesen - http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/deal...tcoin-matters/. It's very level headed and takes people's desires, ethics, morals and service in consideration and frames bitcoin in that context...

    I love bitcoin as much as the next guy - but to think it can thrive to its fullest potential outside of the boundaries of law, morality and ethics - all connected to a power base of people/governments... is the worst kind of pipe dream that could sap it of whatever potential it currently has or can bring.

    Even a cursory reading of bitcointalk.org definitely gives you the impression that BitCoin is as big as the internet revolution - which it is not... or the next best thing since sliced bread and butter.. which it is not. I am certain I'm in a minority (at least as far as bitcointalk goes)... which is why I probably stopped reading it.

    Phoronix is cool, Michael puts in the time to synthesize all Linux/UNIX newsworthy things here, so I am still here .

    There's only two way you are seeing that. 1) You haven't updated Chrome in a long time. 2) You explicitly re-enabled the Apps page in chrome://flags after Google disabled it.

    The default new tab view in Chrome now is a list of your most-visited sites.

    Michael turned it into a political discussion when he said in his article that he is a "believer in capitalism".

    You don't have to have experienced a thing first hand, to know about it. You can learn from the experience and knowledge of others... It is called written word. Books. You should try it some time...

    Thumbs down seamonkey-project.org

    Get back to SEAMONKEY.
    The Original modern Mozilla application suite descendent,
    that you should be using, anyway,
    instead of playing monkey with Firefox all these years now.
    http://www.seamonkey-project.org/
    And yes, apply View->Apply theme>Modern to 'normal' browser look and feel.
    And you gen Mail client, IRC client and small HTML editor with it. ;P
