Opera 10.5 pre-alpha leaks: Windows 7 integration, per-tab private browsing (Download Squad)

Dec 22nd 2009 1:29AM "www.wikimapia.com works flawlessly with Opera 10.10."
I'm aware of it. I know Opera does fix problems. And a lot of Tamilnadu govt. websites work only on IE. w3c standards be damned, as far as they are concerned.

What i meant was, Firefox has reduced me to a state where i browse just to fiddle with the add-ons, instead of using add-ons to enhance browsing. Firefox is the single largest reason i'm a drifter. Opera is very competent, but it needs Firefox's x-factor.

Hate Diggbar? Kill it with a userscript (Download Squad)

Apr 9th 2009 5:02AM I hate digg. Can that also be killed with a userscript?

BumpTop: Do we really need a 3D Windows desktop? (Download Squad)

Apr 8th 2009 5:23PM I've been in the Bumptop beta for a couple of months now and it does have its uses. If you have a cluttered desktop, the quick stacking/grouping of files by type is great, for example. Do we *need* it? no, but that's rather a stupid question to ask - we don't *need* half the stuff on our computers, nor do we need Download Squad itself when there are so many similar blogs out there. It comes down to preference.

I think it would work better as a file manager than as a desktop though, but for touchscreen systems or other specialised setups where efficiency isn't a primary concern it makes a useful and unusual addition (I've had it running on a 22" TV controlled by a PS2 dual shock, where the radial menus and gesture recognition really came in handy)

Microsoft releases Sharepoint Designer 2007 as a free download (Download Squad)

Apr 3rd 2009 3:01PM since almost nobody is using Sharepoint, Microsoft is really open-sourcing a useless product...

Bring Down IE6 (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2009 6:23PM We use XP at work with IE6. From what I am told, it is due to our CRM program's limitations.

Luckily, I am able to use Firefox portable off my mem stick for surfing at lunch and down times. I just had to add in the proxy settings.

"Top" four instant sound effect sites (Download Squad)

European versions of Windows to include multiple web browsers? (Download Squad)

Feb 24th 2009 7:27PM "It was made in the U.S. not Euro, played on the Discovery channels... you might not be so quick to kiss up to daddy MS if you know how he used dirty tactics to kill off the whole commercial browser market for its own selfish long-term commercial interests...

Good for the E.U. its doing the RIGHT thing here."

lol. selfish long term commercial interests eh? now why would those capitalist pigs want to make money? i mean no one starts a business to make money.

so when did Microsoft's OS block other browsers from being installed? i've never had a problem with it. this is like forcing a Christian heterosexual dating web service to provide matching services for homosexuals. crazy stuff. how bout i go to a vegan restaurant, and say "hey where's the beef? You guys are denying me services!!!"

For instance, their System Purification is a copy (look at their pictures) of the good PureRa of RaProduct.

Vuze 4: Combining legal, less legal BitTorrent networks (Download Squad)

Oct 17th 2008 10:21AM Azureus/Vuze has always been able to download any torrent. It never required payment for downloads, and it has always allowed users to keep the classic Azureus interface.
