  • Seriously, I don't think I could have made a worse one even if I tried.
    How about giving some useful information, or maybe something that would actually be newsworthy?

      I thought the version was a penis length competition.

      At least that's what it looks like since Chrome and Firefox started changing major versions every fucking week or so.

        It's a load of horse shit. The new firefox UI shows that the have run out of ideas.

        It's not just the version number, everyone knows you have to take the version number times download size divided by the square root of length between releases (in days).

      Yeah, nobody changes the version number for bugfix-only releases.

  • You know, like when you read Slashdot and you might want each story to have the same sized font. Is rendering a font in the correct size difficult; is there a technical reason for this?

    • I think the reason is that most "desktop" web pages are made for 900px to 1000px wide displays. This fits on a 1024-pixel-wide netbook display or on a 960-pixel-wide half of a 1080p display. But it doesn't fit so well on a 7" tablet that's only about 540px* wide. So the web browser has to zoom the page out and zoom the text back in. And to avoid disrupting the layout, it needs to use heuristics to determine which textual elements to enlarge. See an article about font inflation in Firefox for Android [jwir3.com].

        Intersting link, thanks. And interesting that it mentions how tedious it is to have to scroll left and right when the screen isn't wide enough to display the text, and that Firefox's reflow code handles this. Chrome doesn't have reflow, so you're forced to scroll left and right for every single line of text you want to read on most (ie non-mobile) web pages.

      this is clearly a joke....but if you actually want to see whats in store for firefox 'about 2 releases from now' just start using the firefox Nightly branch:

      https://nightly.mozilla.org/ [mozilla.org]

      they recently implemented a new http cache http://www.janbambas.cz/new-fi... [janbambas.cz]

      they moved the preferences into the webpage area instead of in a popup window http://msujaws.wordpress.com/2... [wordpress.com]

      in windows theyve implemented OMTC https://wiki.mozilla.org/Platf... [mozilla.org]

      and they have been continuing work on their one thread/process per tab

        Thanks, that has explained that the "frecency error blah blah" messages I'm seeing in my console aren't just someone's epic fail at committing a spelling mistake :)

Swap read error. You lose your mind.
