  1. well, sp3 should be coming out next year i believe, because i read that they will release sp3 sometime before the release of longhorn to make sure people dont lose interest in xp.
  2. im gonna make u a screenshot of all of my extensions. ill edit this post. god, i love FF. count 'em: 58 extensions! and i use 'em all (except for the disabled one, which im trying to find replacements for its features because it makes a couple other extensions fail. ive found quite a few extensions to replace it, but not enough).
  3. just because IE7 will have tabbed browsing doesnt mean itll be the best. almost every browser has tabbed but IE6, so i see no reason to switch back just because i can use tabbed browsing with IE7. but dont worry everybody, youll see that IE7 wont have as many options as FF. if IE7 has anything like the about:config that FF has, then ill be slightly impressed. if it has extensions like FF, then ill be slightly even more impressed, though probably dissapointed since i doubt that theyll be user-written, and therefore not have as much variety. and if IE7 can give an extension similar to FoxyTunes,
  4. meh, im not really interested in how secure a browser is, because my computer used to be a fortress of protection that i never needed. i got rid of my anti-virus program and firewalls but kept the spyware programs. my computers been fine and hasnt had any viruses, and i think that everybody choosing browsers simply because of how safe they are or how many viruses are written for that browser is just really dumb. im using firefox because of all the features. just the sheer amount of extensions written by users is almost enough to convince me that FF is the best. IE7 may have tabbed browsin
  5. anyone else have the FF download count extension? im asking because idk how accurate it is. (search for it on google if u want it, because im too lazy to find it for u...)
  6. woot! i have been classified by every quiz on the site! i think.
  7. no application specific settings that i know of, and ive been looking. i was considering getting the kensington and saving the money, but i decided that i didnt like it as much because it wasnt as radical a change as i would have wanted from the old ball-and-chain mouse i had. (btw, does your mouse go idle after like 10 seconds of inactivity? mine does. saves power and comes back on instantly. also, does that one have an on-off switch? i didnt take a close enough look at it in the store.)
  8. is there any way to make it game compatible? not gonna return it; i tried out both the intellimouse and the mx 1000 before i made a decision as to which and i just really dont like the intellimouse that much. its just not heavy enough, nor is the shape as nice on my hand. its not recharable and the only way to tell if the batteries are low on the intellimouse is when it starts lagging or just turns off. not good when youre in the middle of a game and the mouse just craps out on you as you frantically search for batteries. it doesnt have cruise control or application switch, either. the on
  9. i just bought a Logitech MX 1000 Laser Cordless Mouse with Rechargable Battery. the thing kicks ass, way better than the cheap, plastic, crappy Gateway mouse with a short-ass cord and a dust-magnet ball i got with my crappy PC like 3-4 years ago (thats right, i skipped the optical generation of mice entirely; straight from ball to laser). however, ive got a couple questions regarding the extra buttons its got. (tilt wheel, "cruise control," application switch, and forward/back buttons) 1. in games, such as MOHAAS, the extra buttons with not be recognized for some reason. why not? having a
  10. u could ban googles web accelerator from all the test pages: http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=23051 mine got up to 152X faster than 56k with GWA. pretty cool addition from google. cant wait til yahoo makes Yahoo! Internet Blazer or something stupid like that.
  11. nice job DJ! (i should probably post more here, but ive been so friggen busy lately...)
  12. I'll still stick with Gmail despite Yahoo!'s obvious (and extraordinarily late) response to Gmail in all of it's spacious glory.
  13. nvm, theyre not ads, theyre just a new feature of gmail. a really cool one btw. the 'ads' i was seeing were just the couple of default ones they have i guess just to make sure u notice the new feature or something. this looks awesome!
  14. idk, i think theyre like AdSense, only different. i read an article saying that google was going to start changing the way AdWords and stuff, but i didnt think that meant something like adding ads like this. i guess these are sorta okay, though, since they take up less space than the former ads did. they are more invasive though, since theyre right in the center of the screen. and i posted screenshots of them, so u should be able to get a fair idea of how they look.
  15. hey, u can see something from one side of texas while youre on the other, its gonna block out the sun for a town or two.
  16. space isnt the only reason why gmail is better than yahoo mail. yahoos other services included with mail like integrated news and weather and such are cool, but when it gets down to it, gmails got more features and is easier to use.
  17. check out this screenshot of my spam folder. note that the picture next to the ad is simply because i have the BetterSearch extension. without BetterSearch: however, i read a message from a google rep in a different forum saying that most of the time stuff like this is just an experiment and will be taken off quickly, simply to gauge user reaction. EDIT: lmao, look at this ad in google. it promotes yahoo!
  18. because a blimp that big would block out the sun.
  19. lol, it says i could look from one end of texas and see it at the other. riiiight.
  20. Source: AutoPatcher XP unfortunately, they have unbelievably slow bandwidth, so u should leave your computer on overnight if you want to download this stuff. http://download02.isix.net/autopatcher/xp/
  21. opera seems cool, but i still like firefox better. they seem to brag a lot about their intergrated seach engines, but firefox has the same thing, but with the ability to add more engines to the mix. (itd be cool if u could add google desktop seach to it but o well.) u know whos the real winner in all of this competition? Google. integrated searches for opera and FF, with a toolbar for IE. Google is PimPin' themselves!
  22. lol, im a good speller, i just hate grammar.
  23. i dont use it. im just naturally a good speller.
  24. like i said, "just doin' m'job here." if someone reports a post, im supposed to investigate, and since i couldnt see the attachment, i had to assume the worst...
