    Ok, so I'll end up spamming the forum since I double/triple post instead of editing, that's... logic?!

    Lastly, for those in the forums, many have been commenting about the recent lack of the "edit" button. As strictly an interim measure, only Phoronix Premium members have the edit rights to their posts in the forums. Editing for all accounts was disabled due to the massive amount of spam bots exploiting vBulletin's lack of spam checking when editing posts. A majority of our forum spam has come from these bots making clean posts only to then edit the content and insert various links and spam. By disabling the editing, the problem has gone away. I'll work to restore editing for non-premium members when I find a better spam plugin or other solution to avoid this problem.

    Looks like it was a good move to switch browsers awhile ago: http://www.xda-developers.com/operas...word-managers/

    Is there such a person?

    What is bottom here? Web extensions? What would Edge bring (different)?

    Ok. I'm not into mobile devices, so that slipped by me.

    Much better than Chrome maybe (though when I tested it was just as resource hungry). Personally, I prefer Firefox. On mobile it seems to eat a lot less resources. On the desktop, I'm still using Seamonkey/Firefox, but I'm eyeing Vivaldi. Of course, I have Chrome installed, but somehow it didn't manage to win me over in all these years. Meanwhile, Opera just got the boot from my tablet this very week.

    Uhm, lol, they also mumble something about "privacy". Looking on how China does it with their Great Chinese Firewall one could surely expect quite some privacy ... intrusion. I wonder if they're going to implement infamous china Internet censorship, etc.
