There will also be a very long list of perfectly unacceptable pages that won't get blocked. That, or they block everything.
Obligatory UF, somehow relevant again.
Except that Dolphin has tabs, and its predecessor Konqueror had tabs for as long as I remember. Windows explorer still doesn't.
Quite right, and when you use your "rewards card", you give them detailed information about your individual buying habits, which is why I delight in the expressions I get when I decline their incessant offers to give me one - "No, thank you. My privacy is worth more to me than the few bucks I would have saved." I mean, slack-jawed, glassy-eyed, totally-don't-get-what-you-mean type stares. It's... "priceless".
Would you care to elaborate on that? This is a common sentiment on Slashdot, but I still don't think it's rational. What is the benefit of knowing that some corporation with millions of customers doesn't know what products you buy?

Something like the OMG OCR Calculator?
Is there a law (natural or man-made) to say: you get the amount of representation is a proportion of the paid taxes?
Just s/taxes/campaign contributions/g, and there is.
What joke? Due to relativistic time dilation, if they are moving faster, their observed lifetime in our system of reference will be longer.
How is it private if it's done over their network?
That's why it's good practice to use password patterns. They are easy to remember, and offer reasonable security against automated attacks. Anyone who sees one of your passwords can easily deduce the others, but it takes just enough effort to require a targeted attack.
and what is the difference between "rare" and "uncommon"?
Ferrari is rare. Mercedes is uncommon. Now, hand in your geek card as you obviously never played Magic: The Gathering.
that doesn't mean artificially scarce resources, which aren't truly scarce.
That's why those De Beers guys are so poor.
