It may help them determine who exactly is using the browser in multiple users on one account scenarios.
What is the point of using remote resources when local resources are so cheap for non-businesses? The 60's model was based on the economic realities of computing being unaffordable for most people. That is not the case today.
Why do people who often don't even store 100GB of data on their own computers need everything sent into "the cloud"?
All the blather about "public" and "private" as binary opposites leaves people with no ability to deal the reality of how these things overlap. Literally two sides of the same coin in this case, and in a growing number of cases.
That OS has been unsupported for more than 4 years at this point.
Install Linux or get a new computer.
It seems to me that the closest analogy to this test would be our sense of balance. Our reaction to tipping over is mostly unconsciously controlled and happens faster than our normal movements.
Balance is processed in the inner ear and eyes giving about a short a signal path as is possible for us.

Didn't Adblock only arise due to delays in getting Adblock Plus ported to Chrome? I don't see Adblock in Mozilla's addon offerings.

Ad Blocking software allows them to show and always has. And that is because they are unobtrusive and not annoying.
All of my browsers have some kind of ad-block technology in them. And the Google text ads show just fine, thank you.
False with regards to Adblock Plus. http://tech.slashdot.org/story...
I'll always leave adblock enable on those sites that make (empty) threats. Everything on the 'Net has an alternative source, and users smart enough to use adblock are smart enough to find alternative sources.
If they ask nicely to show ads, like DuckDuckGo does, then I may allow them through.
VLC and Mplayer can both play Blu-rays in both ISO and file folder format on Linux as long as they are decrypted.
If you want everything on the disc, make the Blu-ray into an ISO just as you would with DVD.
It's a bigger file, sure, but disk space has been getting cheaper.
