You're seriously OK with the CEO of a tech company being a bigot?

Would you be OK with a tech CEO giving money to the Klan so that they can push for a constitutional amendment banning interracial marriage?

Because that's no better than what he did.

He's not a programmer working in the background. He's the public face of the company. They never should have hired him.

Ugh, no kidding.

The first thing you have to do on any new Firefox installation is install Classic Theme Restorer and Status 4 Evar to get rid of the clusterfuck that is pretty much the entirety of their "improvements" in the last several years.

And even with that it's still a better browser than anything else out there.

That sounds like one of the old Keyspan PCI serial cards. I think I've still got one in a drawer somewhere.

I don't think they ever released an OS X driver for them, I'm not even sure they worked with Mac OS 9.

But I think AC was talking about the Keyspan USB serial adapters. I never used any other USB serial adapters, I've probably got 5-10 of them sitting around somewhere. I haven't needed one in quite a few years.

And I'm not sure what your point is.

That's an installer screen, with the box to install Safari checked.

Yes, it was checked by default. Were you somehow forced not to uncheck it? And it's pretty obvious, it's not in a hidden screen that you're going to quickly click through.

Checking the box by default is NOT installing Safari by default.
