Re: Google's new "Chrome" browser now available

i've been trying to keep an open mind, so i downloaded chrome and gave it a try. pretty speedy - but i cannot stand browsing the web without an adblocker. i used a program called privoxy to create an adblocking proxy on my local computer. that took care of the ads... but still left big gaping ugly h...

Re: np7esk32 ~ ActiveX in Firefox 3

makes me a bit nervous to have activex in my everyday browser in the form of non-official extension. i prefer to explicitly load up IE any time i need to run an activex control. which, now a days, only consists of stuff right off microsoft's site like windows update. i suppose it wouldn't be so bad ...

Re: Opens tiny window

try this: hit alt+space while the window is selected. if all goes well you should get a dropdown menu, where you can hit "s" for size, and adjust with arrow keys

if that doesn't work, does it act the same if you try under a new firefox profile?

I use this addon to force extension compatibility: Nightly Tester Tools: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6543 As its name implies, its an addon for those who test the nightly builds of firefox.

Re: EasyList and Adblock Plus story in the Washington Post.

like jack123, this story is what (indirectly) brought me to this forum as well, even though i've been using adblock plus for ages. i found the WP story through techdirt's coverage of it:

Re: ABP and telemarketers

i wish there was a way to write an app on the iphone that ties in with the actual telephone part. you could maintain a "blocklist" of phone numbers, and when the number called, the app would simply disconnect them. perhaps by muting the sound, picking up the call really quick and hanging up on them....
