Well, yeah, I had an AMD card. I've since replaced it with an nVidia and now I have no problems.
My guess is that hardware acceleration is working fine on your computer.
I recall all the hell I had to endure with my AMD video card and broken hardware acceleration, so I turned acceleration off completely. That made a hell of a difference with web browser speed.
I uninstalled QuickTime when I found it had installed not one, but several "iPod helper services" in the background, despite the fact I never owned an iPod. Granted, that was many years ago.
You can actually train teenagers to be responsible once there are no adults around?
I think you'll have better luck telling smokers to stop because it's bad for their health.
Insurance rates (and prices in general) as set according to market statistics. I don't see how monitoring individual people will help those people.
Too much potential for individual people to get screwed, with no real benefit to the public as a whole. Forget it.
Firefox has had a problem for years where field autocomplete will automatically change capitalization. It makes it impossible for me to log into some of my development tools, because it enforces the capitalization change no matter what. I use Firefox for one tool login and Opera for the other.
Also, I was slamming my head against a desk, trying to find out why my web site caused Firefox to insert usernames into the IRC channel field of a user's profile page. Turns out, Firefox will automatically insert your username into a field that precedes a password field, assuming that if a site is asking for a password, the previous field must be your username. I got really annoyed seeing everyone's IRC channel showing their username instead. Rather than move the password reset field to a different location, I just added a dummy field before the password field, so the extra username is discarded.
Autocomplete is not really a help if it's done badly, and it's often done badly.
Why don't they just call it autocomplete, like everyone else, rather than call it a "prediction service?"
I'm sure most employers would be very annoyed at having to change times on all their schedules, rather than just changing the time clock.
Personally, I think we have so much artificial light in the 21st century, we don't need to still live by rules conceived in the times of candles and moonlight.
The whole reason why we flush is to get rid of bombs.
I haven't noticed any shrinkage of memory usage at all since version 3.6. Both memory usage and the size of the browser download have increased a lot.
From someone who's used Firefox since it was called Firebird, whatever they've been doing for the last few years hasn't been working.
"It looks like the browser you're using isn't compatible with Plink."
How nice of them to prevent me from trying the Web Audio API demo with my newly updated Firefox 25, instead of just seeing if it will work.
Nobody uses the iPhone as a phone. That's why nobody saw it coming. It was all a ruse to make PDAs cool again.
I remember my first thought was, "It doesn't fold. I'll get my face grease all over it. Yuck!"
Yup, they fooled me, too.
So they have to artificially destroy Windows XP in order to sell newer versions.
Sounds like the Detroit auto model to me... which is proven not to work.
Maybe they could have just make sure that Win8 didn't suck?
We can't continue to support legacy systems because people refuse to upgrade.
I wouldn't refuse to upgrade if they didn't massively redesign the UI on a regular basis for no good reason. I have Win7 on my laptop and WinXP on my workstation, because even after more than a year of using Win7 regularly, I still think XP works better, so I use it for my "real" work and the laptop for everyday stuff.
People have no trouble buying OSX updates, because even though the graphics change regularly, the functionality doesn't change much. Of course, it does help that OSX updates are cheaper.
I really wish these tools didn't focus so much on the Start menu. I never use it.
I'm more interested in the taskbar and the old Explorer. Adding new panels to the taskbar, bringing back QuickLaunch with the small icons and support for multiple launch instances, getting rid of the stupid pinning paradigm, letting me have my damn window menus back, etc.
