    I really like Firefox because of its vast quantity of customization options. Between about:config (advanced settings) and userChrome (in-depth CSS and JavaScript customization for Firefox's UI), I have a lot to mess around with and really make the browser work for me. Other browsers are too locked down for my tastes.

  2. Comment on What's an important life lesson that you learned far later than you should have? in ~talk

    That's what I was thinking. There's something to be said for being resourceful with what you buy. You spend less money, and end up helping the environment as well.

    This is violating the establishment clause of the first amendment, right? This is super clear that they're trying to base this law on religion. Edit: I'm actually asking. Is it?

    Are you okay with a toggle to give you control over it?

    Have you contacted them and told them about the problem? I have no personal experience with these devs, but I've heard they're reponsive to bug reports.

    My thoughts exactly. This is super weird to see Microsoft doing all this stuff after their use of ahem questionable ethics during their prime.

    Memex looks super promising! Although, I'll probably have to wait for sync before I use it. I use Firefox on my phone and desktop pretty equally and couldn't live without it being synced between. So, is it an extension or is a separate program you install?

    Holy hell. Me too! I thought I was the only one. Looking at anything even mildly sharp makes my eyes feel super weird.

    But there are plenty of non-profits that do great things, like Spectria.

    I just think it's crazy to think about that there's this massive rock orbiting earth with billions of years of history, like the ancient meteor creating that crater. It's just absolutely mind-boggling to me. We definitely need to explore it more, there's so much to find.

    What about non-profit companies?

    I'm pretty cynical, however, when it comes to any business "deserving" support based on ethical merit. They're businesses in a free market. They are self-serving as a rule, and any semblance of moral awareness is only approached as yet another self-serving means to the only end they seek, which is profit.
