It's a branch of firefox, basically the same thing without all the bullshit. I've been using mainly chromium(chrome branch) for the better part of two years. The chromium branch is the same as chrome minus the tracking components stripped out. For anyone interested you can grab the prebuilt here or grab the uncompiled version from the repository here and build your own.

Really? Let's look at their latest moral outrage over a 30 year old limerick that's been used up to this day. Now let's look at the pushback by people against the sjw mindset and narritive. Their narrative is, it's "transphobic" it's not, it actually caused murders(it didn't). If you're unwilling to protect your culture, then don't whine when someone turns around and tries to make it into something you wouldn't recognize. The rest of us however, have no desire to see an already and accepting culture turned into a pile of crap. Much like what they did to atheism, comic books, and the sci-fi/fantasy book genres.

This is the first time I've heard of it in nearly two months. Even Slashdot and Cracked stopped posting stories about it weekly some time ago.

Cracked just finished namedropping gamergate a week ago, and the washington post did something similar a few days ago. It's still in the news, which should tell you something.

Are you claiming Zoe Quinn was not harassed?

Technically no. Neither was she doxed(she released the information herself), or had her nudes released(she did porn, and it's still available on their website). She also left the country on a per-arranged trip and tried to dish it up as a "this is what harassment has done to me..." type of crap. She did however, go after and harass wizardchan not once but at least twice. Tel me, how petty and low do you have to be to go after a bunch of overweight virgins who want to be left alone?

Once you get outside of what narrative they tried to push, and actually look into it yourself, you suddenly find that things don't actually match up. Reality is far different from the fiction presented.

I've asked dozens of times for said evidence of people who are pro-GG who've "committed crimes" I have yet to see it. I can however find easily plenty of vocal aGGro's who are active to this day who've actually broken laws, including anti-swatting laws. What I find funny is the comment is the second sentence, you've just come out saying that people can't make their own decisions. You realize how bigoted that is right?

Putting social justice in scare quotes while blathering about moral authoritarians is amusing enough, but to do it while equivocating about your side's wilful invasion community spaces for the purposes of moral crusade? Classy.

Except it's accurate. You miss the attack against lionhead studios and their support for national cleavage day? Or how about their attacks against various types of dress? Of course, when they use exactly the same thing it's not 'sexist' anymore. Then again, we didn't start the invasion now did we. They did, when they decided they wanted to turn everything into a political pissing match and people said "enough."

Then again aGGro's are so small in number that they can't even trend a hashtag. There goes that myth that GG is 300 people.

You're never going to defeat the armies of the basement-dwellers on their own turf. Pick another battlefield.

That's pretty funny. They also said gamergate would be dead in a week, this is month 7. How many grassroots campaigns last this long, while shrugging off the left-leaning media goes after them using fake claims of harassment.

Well gamergate uses it as one of the main pushbacks against moral authoritarians and prudes. The "social justice" crowd loves social media, so there needs to be some people who are willing to push back against those who are out to try and cause actual harm.

First Cree bulb I bought when they became available in Canada was ~3 years ago, and the bulb died a couple of weeks ago. They flat out refused to cover the warranty on it, home depot refused to cover the warranty on it as well. So that will make it the last time they will get business from me. I switched to the philips flat LED, which are rather nice. I just wish more stores carried the 5000-6000k bulbs, I hate the muddy brown 'warm' colour.

Are dimmable ones more expensive? Are they all dimmable?

Probably more expensive. Up here in Canadaland non-dimmable you can get really good quality LED bulbs for $7-9 each, cheap ones from your local dollar store for $3 plus tax, and cheap 4 packs for about $12. Dimmables are between 25-70% more than the non.
