Chrome was released earlier, but it didn't immediately catch up so it all makes sense. I personally never thought of Mozilla as a company. And since they are not a company they don't have the survival skills of one. Google, on the other hand, is a predator and Mozilla is no match. It sucks, but that's how the real world works.

That "someone" didn't get Russia, China, France and Britain to sit down and negotiate with Iran. Those countries never had as big as problem with nuclear Iran as the U.S. did/does. It was mostly the other way around - the U.S. threatening Iran and the others with leaving the talks and keeping the sanctions every other day.

It does make economic sense, but it's not easy/cheap/quick. In fact, that's what's being done in my city right now. But they started extending the existing platforms 2 years ago and it's going to take another year. Some platforms had to be moved/rebuilt from scratch. So back to my point - it's not easy :)

It's easy to add more cars to the train.

It's not easy to add cars because you'd have to extend existing platforms to accommodate longer trains, which is usually expensive and time consuming.
This is not to discard the entire point about the value of light rail, but that particular argument is incorrect.
