But OK, I'll indulge. Let's abolish taxes. No more army. No more navy. No more state or local police. Or justice system.

Funny... but you're assuming the only way you can have security, justice, and other services is if you're forced to pay them.

In fact, the only moral way would be to allow people to spend their money however the heck they want. People need security; in a government-less society, it would be provided.

People need to stop calling taxation "taxation" and start calling it what it truly is: theft and extortion on a massive scale. There's no excuse for wanting that.

From Google's FAQ on the new system:

The plugin is not available for my browser. How do I opt-out of the cookie?

If you're using any other browser, you can look for a common feature, which accomplishes the same as setting the DoubleClick opt-out cookie: Find a setting in your browser's settings that allows you to only accept cookies from sites you visit, or only "first-party cookies". This option may also be described as "blocking third-party cookies."

I agree with you there. On OSX it looks the same, but when I'm on FreeBSD the menus and the menu toolbar (File, Edit, Help, etc) have weird colors. It's worth it, though.

Then again it looks like it's using QT 3.3 on my system, but the current version is 4.3. That could be the issue.

Honestly, while apparently Opera isn't the fastest renderer anymore, the UI /feels/ so much faster. Also, moving back and forth with the 'Back' and 'Forward' buttons are faster in Opera because it does not send out another HTTP request each time you click the button, while apparently other browsers do.
