If you want bookmark management, use an add on..
Simple bookmark management should be built in. But perhaps even that should be an add on, just one that is installed & enabled by default.
There's a bunch of things firefox has included in the core browser that probably should be replaced with an addon. There have been many examples of this already. What they are missing here is a prompt on upgrade if their change in behaviour applies to you so you aren't surprised by it.
Most users don't read the release notes, or follow some obscure blog where this change may have been discussed.
Right, Firefox have been simplifying options that break web sites for years. If you want to mess with your browsing experience in a way that might break how websites work, install an addon.
There's no point having what amounts to a "Make all websites work" checkbox.
Games usually close without prompting when you press ALT+F4. They can handle the WM_CLOSE & WM_QUERYENDSESSION events; open a "Do you really want to quit" dialog and prevent a logoff. But I haven't seen many games that do this properly.
Good. That deserves to be on the front page, at least once you've got a solid plan for how you are going to fix it.
Github is the obvious competitor you have to beat, or at least distinguish yourself from. If you're going to focus on source control you have to beat github on features. Make it easy for people to contribute to projects, while also respecting the contribution rules of that project.
My suggestion would be to focus on the things that github doesn't do. If you want to be a trusted place for downloading software, help us to trust the integrity of the binaries you are hosting. Host build & test servers that can be used to produce repeatable builds.
Code review before the "RockStar" can merge his code in, should give the same result. Your new feature is not done until someone else can use it & maintain it. Otherwise the business is screwed if you get hit by a bus.
Starting a policy of reviewing all code may seem like a waste of time. But as a team works together more, code reviews should get faster.
To cover some of TFA's "Downsides";
Working on stories which have dependencies is hard
Yes. If you find you need to reuse some common code between two feature branches, first refactor & rebase that code into a separate feature branch. If possible, merge that code to master first. Then you can both merge it cleanly. A branch is not a "feature" or a "use case", it's a patch series that you can merge without breaking production. You don't have to wait until a whole "story" (or whatever you call it) is complete.
Reviewing big changes is hard
Try to split big changes into a series of smaller commits before pushing for review. Again, this may involve rebasing & reworking patches that you have already written. Don't get too attached to the commit's you have already created. I don't want to review all of your experiments while you were working out what not to do.
No, absolutely not.
Out of 74,207,281(-ish) tested values for n, this is only the 49th prime found. If you tested the first 74,207,281 odd numbers you would have found more that 5 million primes.
... may be the AMD GPU itself is simply not powerful enough to use that bandwidth effectively
Building the right balance of compute units, memory capacity & bandwidth is a hard problem. Games developers will target high frame-rates on their target hardware, optimising or cutting back features until everything works well enough.
We will have to wait and see if developers will find creative ways to use this bandwidth increase.
There is NO technical means by which you can have a backdoor which is only usable by one government
Counter argument; Dual_EC_DRBG. Only an entity that knows the hidden key that the algorithm is using can deduce the internal state of this RNG.
Backdoors are a problem, and I'm not suggesting that they should be implemented. But it is possible to build one so that only the person with the right secret key can open it.
If you think it's only a matter of faster technology, or better maths. Here's another impossible problem for you; Write down the decimal expansion of Graham's Number.
There are hard limits to what we can compute with the matter, space and time available to us within this universe.
Evolution is a million line computer program falling into place by accident.
