A defeat for US e-colonialism.
To which the solution is, better wood burning stoves, with a chimney to improve draft, operating temperate and efficiency, while eliminating indoor pollutants.
Even a flue that's not completely air-tight is a start, because the pressure is lower than ambient, and it draws air in along its length.
The Philips wood burning stove was way cooler than these looks good on paper solar contraptions. Not that this design would be suitable for these villages, but better wood stoves should have been first on the list.
I heat my cosy developed-world house using wood, and it's incredibly clean and efficient. And by clean I mean even "a little bit of dust" would be unacceptably dirty. The yearly chimney sweep shows that the combustion itself is very close to complete, and the fuel itself is free. Garden waste to most people.
That isn't what happened, but thanks for sharing your narrow perspective.

Wahwhua: Here is a crappy solar cooker we designed. Use this instead of harvesting firewood.
Villagers: This solar cooker is completely inferior to our existing wood stoves. It's not fit for purpose.
Wahwhua: Ok, here is our new design. You should use this because YOU'RE damaging the planet.
IE is crap, but not for that reason. IE9 is missing some very-nice-to-have bits of HTML5 just because it was released so long ago.
As for CSS3, yes it's deficient in some areas, but there is a trick to get around many of them: SVG
Unless you have to support IE8 (LOL poor you), then the users will never notice the smoke and mirrors.
Milliseconds, (maybe not so much nanoseconds) DO matter inside an animation loop.
Oh, unless you were happy with Flash?
While slashdot mocks the computer industry marketing for describing computers using a single metric, you seem to be quite happy with that when it comes to browser performance.
An example: Chrome (v8 engine) has this reputation for amazing speed, but IE9 absolutely grinds Chrome into the dust when it comes to simply repositioning elements on screen; something which today's web apps spend a lot of their time doing. You can feel it too if you know what you're looking for. I don't follow IEs development as closely as Chrome or Firefox, but IE must be hardware accelerating these translations.
I fully expect Google to focus on performance cases which help their specific apps. Again, a conflict of interest, akin to Microsoft pre-caching masses of junk, so that Office can appear to start up much faster than the competition.
The majority of the Mozilla foundation's funding comes from a search royalties contract, currently with Google.
Can someone explain why this is funny?
I can see how it could be funny in a different context, but here it's like the punchline for the wrong joke.
with time, everyone is going to consolidate their scripts under the main domain
No they won't. There simply isn't enough selection pressure to make that happen. noscript users are this tiny insignificant blip concealed in the statistical noise of web traffic.
Secondly, you're right. All the superficial problems (which I can almost never reproduce anyway) with firefox are nothing compared to having a browser I can trust, from an organization that I'm ideologically aligned with.
Google building a web browser is a conflict of interests; though I'm still glad they did for browser war / political reasons.
The rate feels slower today than when I was a kid.
And why did the previous generations always get the cool people. What happened to all the von Neumanns, Turings, and Freeman Dysons?
No, but it's reached the point where automated cars are better than the average human driver. A low bar to pass.
