    Useful links, John. Interestingly it looks like Chrome is the first browser since IE to really have a clear majority (well, clear lead-- it's still under 45%, not yet a majority). FF never really got there-- at the top just slightly (a couple percentage points) and then slipped back down because of Chromoe.

    It feels too dumbed down. It feels like an Apple product.
    I think that's why I don't like Safari. Despite being a serious Mac user (for specific reasons) I am completely against the dumbing down trend in their more recent stuff.
    I like the older approach. For example, plug in a printer to a PC and then search for drivers; on a Mac, it just works. (If that's "dumbed down" I'm happy.)
    But everything newer (including never versions of what used to be decent software, like Final Cut Pro, or iMovie) is really getting too simplified.

    the whole out-of-the-box-non-customisable thing can be quite annoying sometimes, as really all they are doing is catering for those who don't actually know the difference between a browser and a search engine, which is one of my main problems with ios, and why so many people jailbreak (although many just use it for free apps), but as I've been saying, chrome has a good array of addons, and the dev tools are pretty hardcore.

    I like how Macs "just work". I don't like how you can't customize them. There's no reason those two have to go together. (And Mac OS is fine. iOS is awful. I like what my iPhone can do, but I hate that I can't, for example, actually access any files except through the silly "apps".)

    I really do like the dumb-as-you-like, no fluff setup of Chrome - Firefox gets bogged down all too quickly with addons if you let it and then the lag set in... Urgh, its so frustrating.

    I should forward the browser stats page to some of the IT guys I know - one of them recently insisted that IE was still the most widely used browser and he said it with such unwavering belief that I didn't have the inclination to argue. I just smiled sweetly and left him so his hardware

    The most dangerous things in the world are:
    A programmer with a hardware component
    A technician with a software patch
    And a user with an idea

    1: If it's anyones signature, it's Daniels...
    2: I'm pretty sure I actually had it before you, then removed it, then put it back... maybe I'm going CRAZY!!!!
    3: You had it for like a day
    4: Mine is a cooler font face than yours was
    5: Sue me
    6: Mine also has a rather amusing joke about floppy discs

    As you can see in the points stated above, the signature is clearly different from the one that Bernie puts his claim to.
    Also, seeing as it was never Bernie's signature in the first place, I move that this be thrown out of court.
    That will be all your honnor.
