Hey, Mozzies, you could do the Net and the NSF a big service by totally re-writing that farkin kludge of a browser.

Your coders are all coked-up monkeys these days.

But, how will I get green lights now?  I won't be able to just quote politicians verbatim and make headlines out of them!  XD

Where it's always been subby; in the gutter, quietly sobbing as it tries to pull it's shredded cloths back on.

Just check out the Rand Paul thread (7 down) if you don't know what I mean.

Bring your own eye bleach.

They'd better hurry up before the IRS strips Mozilla of its tax-exempt status and puts them out of business.

"Gigabit fiber is now able to move data at about 70% of the speed of light," said Mozilla's project lead for the Mozilla Ignite Challenge, Will Barkis. "The winning applications showcase what's possible when we make networks not only faster, but also smarter and deeply programmable."

In this context I don't think "fast" means what you think it means.

Do what I do.  Lie and misrepresent the headlines.  Typos are good too.

What the hell good is a superfast network if your user access to it is a pile of monkey poop?

Trust me, there's some rich poop mining t'be had in the Mozilla WHOOPS SOMETHING NOT WORKY, WHAT DO? forums.

closing LUE the politics tab would be like putting a person with a horribly contagious disease through a jet engine

More likely google will stop paying them to be the default search engine and they will die the quick death they deserve.

/firefox is a completely shiatty browser

No?

Listen dorks,

Quit acting all superior and resume arguing about the new Xbox vs PS4 or iPhone vs Android.

Also, there hasn't been a Christina Hendrix thread for a while. Get back to work.

Sad, cuz it used to be pretty damn good.

Gotta say though the NSF project sounds pretty awesome.

Maybe they could stop redirecting me to the mobile site which has a giant flash popup which blocks the whole page and presumably has a cancel button somewhere off the side of my screen that. Of course the popup moves when I try to pan to the cancel button.

Big deal, my work filters have been keeping the politics tab off for ages now.
