Firefox is absolutely fucked up now. Now it has a UI that's as bad as Chrome's (which is pretty damn bad!), but Firefox's performance and memory usage still suck, whereas Chrome's aren't as bad...

Ah yes, but Firefox has one great thing going for it, which is that it doesn't come with Flash pre-installed. So I use the chromebox hooked up to my TV to watch the latest Sia video, and I use my lappy with Firefox to surf blogs. Life is good.

Catholicism has taught that the evolution and big bang theory are right in sunday school for ages now..

Maybe a modified version of those theories. For instance, the modern synthesis of descent with variation has no supernatural guidance, but the Catholic version does. The big bang theory indicates that time began to operate 13.7 billion years ago, the Catholic version insists that the words "cause" and "effect" had meaning prior to that.

Microsoft is making more profit off Android than they are off their own phones.

Samsung is cool with that since they haven't challenged Microsoft. The bottom line of the cost-benefit analysis says go ahead and pay the Redmond tax, obviously. The offering from Google is free, and their own operating system never got any traction.
