Submission + - Chrome 45 Launches, Automatically Pauses Less Important Flash Content Like Ads

An anonymous reader writes: Google today launched Chrome 45 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android with some expected changes and new developer tools. You can update to the latest version now using the browser’s built-in silent updater or download it directly from First and foremost, Chrome now automatically pauses less important Flash content (rolling out gradually, so be patient). This has been a longtime coming from both Google and Adobe, with the goal to make Flash content more power-efficient in Chrome: In March, a setting was introduced to play less Flash content on the page, but it wasn’t turned on by default, and in June, the option was enabled in the browser’s beta channel. Now it’s being turned on for everyone.

Comment Re:Everything you need to know about GNOME 3 (Score -1, Troll) 46

I personally prefer the new gedit. It has the same functionality as before, they just moved some things around. The content of the menu bar is now under the menu button, and they removed the toolbar which just duplicated a lot of functionality. Do you really need dedicated buttons for cut, copy and paste that takes up a lot of screen space? Most people will use the keyboard shortcuts for those things. This is just complaining for the sake of complaining.

Because RHEL has direct support from RedHat and CentOS has community support. Since the src.rpm's are the same for RedHat and CentOS (minus the trademark graphics), I'm comfortable calling CentOS a clone of RHEL.

So if they are the same does that mean that the same day that I can download RHEL 7.2 I will be able to download CentOS 7.2 (yes I know that they don't use that version scheme)?

But C? Who da ELL uses that anymore? C++!! Notice the PLUS PLUS? That's double plus good!! Google wants the world to drink its coke. That is all. Men won't care about GO-ogle. Women? Numbers too small and, yes, Helen Reddy, very easy to ignore.

The GNOME desktop environment is too a large extent written in C, and so are many applications that target the GNOME environment.

No, they just count each x.y as a major release, which is not unreasonable since there is quite a lot of new features going in to each of them. They started out at 3.3 since that's where they forked from OpenOffice; so there have been 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 5.0. That gives 5.0 as the tenth major release.

Well, most of the times when you see those headlines it's because Joe Shmoe actually did what it said. It's not very common to be falsely accused and arrested for such things. It happens from time to time though and when it does I actually see those headlines too. And anyone doing even a half-serious background check will not stop there.

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
