Seriously - how are you supposed to protect against that?
I am going to give the answer that we don't like: Antivirus / anti-malware software. It is not perfect, but stops the user from installing known malware.
Also, I would bet a reasonable amount of cash that if you did a survey of non-geek smartphone users, most would think "iPhone" to the prompt "App store".
I think the opposite is true. Geeks may know the difference between App Store, Marketplace, App Catalog, App World and Phone Marketplace, but most people don't.
They used different hardware for Windows and OS X. It looks like the Mac is actually more powerful though, so the OSX browsers should score higher if they were equally efficient.
* For OS X: a MacBook Pro laptop, currently OS X 10.6.6, 4GB of RAM, 2.66 GHz Intel Core i7, and NVIDIA GT 330M with 512MB of RAM.
* For Windows: a Lenovo T410s laptop, currently Windows 7 Enterprise, 4GB of RAM, 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5, and NVIDIA NVS 3100M with 512MB of RAM.
NX used to be really great and a number of people I know used it. But I don't know any one that still does.
So what are they using now that is better than NX?
How would the users know it's that site that is broken, and not the browser?
As nice as it is with cheap stuff, I cannot come up with a good argument why internet sales should be except from tax while in-store sales still pay. Internet stores can compete just fine on actual efficiency improvements over physical stores.
Also, the radiation higher up than LEO is a bitch.
Calm down already, it's a 14-year-old. Give him a chance to try it at least.
Couldn't this be done with Meta-Refresh?
Forgot to mention that the ISS has been continually powered by solar panels since 1998.
The propulsion is not solar powered. On GOCE of the other hand, it is. It is only 270 km (170 mi) up where the atmosphere is relatively thick and it will stay up for 20 months.
It isn't for pandering to movie watchers. It is because a 21 inch screen in 16:9 format has a smaller area than a 21 inch 4:3 screen, and is thus cheaper to make.

Many of these are the IE rendering engine wrapped in a new user interface. They appeared in the days when IE development was dead and provided useful things like tabs and popup blocking, while staying compatible with the IE6-only websites that used to be everywhere.
Maxthon for one is very popular in China because it supports ActiveX which many Chinese banking websites rely on (bleh), and it is much nicer to use than IE6. I am not sure how it compares to IE8 though.
