: You know I would drop chrome if firefox had better space management
: I wonder how 4.0 is going to shape up
: chrome rocks
: : ]
: zzzuper: but it is java, and wont integrate with gtk or emerald window managers
: so it is a bit off~
: is chrome java?
: zzzuper: what gave you that idea?
: i dont think so
: 13:48 zzzuper: but it is java, and wont integrate with gtk or emerald window managers
zzzuper: its written in c++ right?
Akiva: zzzuper: I thought it was java,
zzzuper: wouldnt be fastest if it was..
zzzuper: : ]
Akiva: regardless, I don't care, I just know it does not integrate with linux wm
Akiva: kde4 would be a good place though for its tab system
zzzuper: its webkit=c++
zzzuper: running win atm : S
zzzuper: fed upp with linux
s_20: Akiva: if you bothered to check the appearance settings, you can make it look gtk-esque
Akiva: s_20: bothered looking there, can't
Akiva: you can change colours, that is just about it
s_20: Akiva: it's using my gtk theme, not just the colours
Akiva: s_20: would this include custom corner buttons? Perhaps I was premature?
s_20: i'm not quite sure what you mean by that, all buttons whatsoever are drawn properly for me, using my (kde/qt) gtk theme
Akiva: ah, found it... you win this time s_20...
Akiva: >_> ~~
zzzuper: is it fast i linux?
zzzuper: read that latest firefox is 0.001 ms faster now
zzzuper: : D
zzzuper: in win
s_20: zzzuper: in linux chrome feels (renders) a lot faster than firefox
s_20: just my subjective impression
zzzuper: it was ridiculas in the beginning
zzzuper: chrome was doubling performance every major version
markey: hey guys
markey: is Michael Larabel here?
giselher: ping michaellarabel
markey: michaellarabel: hey
markey: michaellarabel: nice article about KDE / Qt
markey: (I'm one of the guys you cited)
markey: michaellarabel: and kudos for being the first ;)
markey: Ryan Paul does not work on weekends
markey: so, Ars Technica will be later than you
dandel: it's tough to get amd to even properly acknowledge bugs that appear... http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1942
Azerthoth: A(nother) T(errible) I(nvestment)
dandel: not really, Azerthoth... it's just that ati has bugs which creap in on major changes.
dandel: the latest major change is ubuntu 10.10 and the latest xorg server... that's a definite cause of a lot of bugs... anyways, the bug with ati is uninitialized variables.
Azerthoth: dandel, I always hear 'its fine except for this or that bug' but as thats been going on for years ... I'd say the problems with ati were endemic and not specific
dandel: I prefer ati over nvidia because i've had multiple video cards from nvidia break for no good reason.
dandel: with that said... it's clear why i'm avoiding nvidia... bad hardware experience.
Azerthoth: cant fault you for that, same reason why I'll never buy anything from asus again
dandel: I've had a few problems with ati cards, however that was from bios mods... the nvidia cards failed under stock use.
dandel: also, with nvidia, my friends which use em i haft to lend my cheap backup card to. which oddly enough is an nvidia card (which i got for free a while back)
Azerthoth: I have had one nvidia card die a premature death but thats it
michaellarabel: markey: Ah okay, I work everyday :)
markey: michaellarabel: that pays off, doesn't it :)
markey: I dunno why Ars doesn't do it
markey: I told Ryan that I find it stupid
markey: but oh well
markey: that's Conde Naste
markey: michaellarabel: http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=10/10/31/2125201
markey: but you were first ;)
genjix: woo! i love this idea
genjix: kde -> qt
