Christ lord almighty, this program has gone to the shitter and it's killing me, PLEASE focus in that damned order.

First I thought it was me or my machine, because I'm an extremely heavy tab user, but I'm seeing it on my other machines too. Yes, I run a heck of a lot of tabs in some sessions (probably over 100 right now) however Firefox has run over 100 tabs for me for the best part of 8+ years.
When I'm researching I have 8 tabs open, it's what I do. I middle click the link to open in the background (tab mix plus â(TM)¥) and then I read the current tab, switch instantly to the next one, no back buttons and clicking the next link, I've already clicked it, it's waiting for me.

I just want the damn thing to be stable, I want them to STOP fiddling with the UI, I want them to STOP adding features. I've got 8gb of RAM use it (properly!) if you need it - but maintain stability and performance.
I'm almost using Chrome at the moment and I can't stand Chromes, Apple style "our way or the highway" on stupid changes.
FF with Tabs Menu, Xmarks, Tab Mix Plus, Lastpass is a joy to use when it's being reliable but god help me this is killing me.

Bullshit, I've been doing it for 2 years now and healthy food is fine, it tastes like food, not random chemicals and slop.

It's actually not that difficult to cook something healthy and quickly in a short amount of time once you actually put the effort in for a couple of months, a quick and simple food routine is great.

It's called eating well, exercising and losing a significant amount of weight.
I know, I came very very close to having it. Break the sugar addiction, quadruple your vegetable intake, vastly reduce your sugar / heavy foods intake and do a little, tiny bit of basic light exercise.

In a couple of years, guess what,...?

Couldn't agree more on the kids thing, I've been following that way of thought for many years.

This quote from The Matrix is unfortunately sadly on point.
I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.

In a single (ok 2) words

Fuck them
Fuck them in their stupid assess. I don't give a shit about the "baytrail tablets and laptops" If you are purchasing 32bit only hardware in the last 4 years, fucking shame on you and if intel don't or didn't have a 64bit alternative, you shouldn't have bought intel.

32bit OS's should've been dead 5 years ago, this bullshit needs to stop.

Subject says it really. Win7 shouldn't have shipped with a 32bit version, Windows 8 definitely should not have shipped with a 32bit version and for goodness sakes, Windows 9 most god damned definitely should not be shipping with a 32bit version.

Can we finally get a single unified build here? It's time to let it go.

I already can't see the pixels even up ultra close on an iphone 5, I have difficulty on my Samsung Galaxy S3 and both of those displays are only "fairly good" by the new mid 2014 phone standard which is up to over 500ppi

You want to impress me, get OLED happening everywhere, I've done the reading, I understand the tech, the colour range, refresh rate and incredibly black blacks are awesome.

Also, 2d / 3d graphics processors are going to melt pushing this many pixels sooner or later :/

Completely unsustainable under the assumption people are allowed to continue to breed as they currently do.
If every human on earth were to have the same luxuries which many of us do in the west (I'm typing this from my 1 bedroom apt, it's heated, I'm sitting on a $1000 comfortable office chair, behind 4 monitors, I saw a doctor today for free) then the entire world would collapse in about 11 minutes.

Maybe, just maybe if the machines did all the work AND we stopped our endless population / consumption, we might be ok - while we pillage what natural resources are left - but I suspect we're all mostly fucked regardless.
