Comment: That's not what it says at all vs Chrome (Score 3, Informative) 80

"The Chrome Security team has been a source of innovation in the browser security space. Tor Browser Bundle is based on Firefox and thus inherits progress made by Mozilla automatically. While improvements in Chrome may not be appropriate for Firefox, they could be integrated in Tor Browser Bundle. In a best case scenario, members of the Chrome Security team may be allowed to work with the Tor Project on these changes."

Basically it's saying: Chrome is also doing good stuff, combine it with the stuff you get from Mozilla for a better result.

Security bugs filed against Firefox are private until a new release is out to the users. If the issue is critical (looks like it can be exploited), it will be in a x.0.1 update. If it isn't, then it will be in n+1.

Another way of stating what you said is "if Firefox engineers find a way to 0-day their own browser, they fix it before plasting the information on how to do it all over the internet".

Internet Explorer has offered this for far longer than Chrome and it's actually quite effective when you don't click away the warnings. Note that Firefox and Safari also use the same SafeBrowsing service as Chrome does, though they have to wait for the protocol documentation to be updated before offering features like this one.

>He only said that he didn't want it to work with older versions, and that it was not a lot of work - i.e. it still took some amount of work - to make it not work with older versions

He doesn't say that at all. Really. It's not even remotely in the article. He talks about dropping support for Python 2.6. This isn't an action involving work! It means you no longer care if it doesn't work in Python 2.6.

>What he appears to be complaining about is "Why do projects continue to require old Python releases?"

No, he doesn't. I re-read the article after reading your post and I have no idea where you get this.

He really is talking about dropping support, i.e. no longer caring if it doesn't work on old Python versions.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
