Opera 11 downloaded 6.7 million times on day one -- thanks to the power of bacon

While Opera 11's warm reception had a lot to do with a greatly improved browser and a very loyal fan base, the boys in Oslo had one clever trick up their sleeve which they saved for launch day. And with nearly 7 million downloads in 24 hours, you've got to hand it to Opera: they know how to tempt a geek. How'd they do it? By dangling delicious bacon in front of Reddit users. You've got to admit...

Holy unspeakable awesomeness, Batman! It's Robinisms for Android!

There are a few things that would make every day that much more awesome. For some, it might be a Peter Griffin-style soundtrack following you around... or perhaps a personal sidekick who could chime in with memorable catchphrases like Burt Ward used to do on the classic Batman series. Yes, Robin was quite the wordsmith, slinging gems like "Holy atomic pile, Batman!" If you've got an Android sm...

Ok, now Google is just screwing with us...

A few days back, I came across some vendor-specific files on the public Git repositories for Google Chrome OS. Labeled for Acer, Dell, and HP, the files likely hinted at the fact that the big three OEMs were at the stage where they needed driver support for their Chrome OS hardware. Yesterday, however, those files disappeared from the repo, and they're still missing today. They've been replace...

Mozilla Dev has a little fun with Apple's HTML5 chest-pounding

Now that just about everyone on Twitter has taken a shot at Apple over their "We herd u liek standerdz!" page -- which sniffs user agents and prevents access unless you're using Safari -- it's time for the real fun to begin. Mozilla dev Rob Sayre's rebuttal is an awesome, animated eyesore. Have a look see, and feel free to share your own interpretation with us in the comments! Share ...

Microsoft states the obvious: those damn toolbars cause 70% of IE crashes

So this might not seem obvious to everyone, but as a guy in the trenches I'm not at all surprised by the statement Ars Technica quoted this morning from a new Microsoft whitepaper: "Add-ons cause most browser crashes, accounting for over 70 percent of Internet Explorer 8's crashes. Slowdowns in Internet Explorer 8 are very often caused by add-ons-especially when you open a new browser window or ...

YouTube rolls out auto-transcript, LOLs ensue

There are already plenty of third-party apps that allow you to leverage the power of Google Translate for hilarity's sake. Translation Party, Google Translate Boomerang. They're always good for a "Mr. Sparkle"-esque chuckle. But now -- thanks to Google rolling out automatic transcripts on YouTube -- you get your insipid translation giggles directly from the source! Just have a look at Brad'...

Sumotori Dreams - sumo Time Waster with added WTF

Perusing Videogum today, I came across one of the most hilarious games I've ever seen. It's called Sumotori Dreams, and, although I think it's supposed to be a sumo wrestling game, it's more like a falling-down-and-rolling-on-the-floor simulator. You can download and play the game, which weighs in at a surprisingly un-sumo-like file size of 96k, but it's just as funny to watch demo videos of the ...

Unintelligencer Maeks U Rite Dum - Time Waster

It's always nice to have a good laugh during an otherwise stressful workday, and what's more fun than laughing at outright supidity? The Unintelligencer uses an array of sophisticated linguistic algorithms to convert your text from perfectly suitable English into the unrecognizable drivel you've gotten used to seeing on YouTube, Facebook, and all your other favorite sites. Let's try an example f...
