Strangely enough google.com does seem to load slightly slower in IE11 than in Firefox 26, while I don't notice any difference with msn.com. I don't have Chrom(ium|e) installed and don't care enough to do so.
Hmm, I suppose you're using an older version and IE11 has actually improved then, as the one thing where IE definitely isn't slow is startup; the window opens almost instantly. There's also no noticable difference in the time it takes to open msn.com between IE11 and Firefox 26 on my system (not much longer than one second, which frankly is good enough for me. Of course it's also possible that you're just more sensitive about such issues than I am.)
Could you give an example of a site where IE seems slow? I mostly use Firefox but very occasionally try IE (11), and I don't notice any speed difference. I also check out Chrome every now and then, its performance doesn't seem any different compared to Firefox or IE either.
I don't like the font rendering in IE though; fonts look very different compared to Firefox and are harder to read.
If they were certain to make more money by selling Photoshop for three bucks, why wouldn't they do it? It seems illogical, so I guess the case is that it's unlikely they'd make more money that way.
(I'm not an economist, and this isn't economical advice.)
Why would you need to register it? I fairly recently bought a prepaid SIM card with cash, no names asked. Unless the registration was part of the joke, in that case I'm sorry
Honestly, my first reaction is to be jealous of him, and anyone else who can hold the belief that they're The Greatest Thing To Happen with confidence. I imagine it would be much better than what I have now, that is just enough confidence in myself to get by.
I don't live in the US though, but I drive less than I did ten years ago. Back then I had a car, now I don't. I don't really miss having a car much, because I don't need to travel long distances.
Exactly, why rage in a game when you could instead go out to a bar and start an actual fight, with real damage to living people.
this is worse that usual, I read the article (well, skimmed through it)
This is a serious condition. Luckily a few more Bitcoin and Samsung lawsuit articles should make it go away.
I use it all the time, both in Windows (8.1 currently) and Debian GNU/Linux (with xbindkeys). It has a lot of useful shortcuts in Windows by default and I've configured several on the Linux side too.
I mean no offense, but someone not using the winkey seems to me as incredulous as it apparently seems to you that people would use it very often. For example, do you really click the start button with a mouse and then select Run... instead of Win+R? Or search without pressing Win+F (or Winkey on its own, or Win+W for settings search)? Not to mention Win+1, Win+2 etc. to run and focus taskbar pinned applications.
Sounds like a scam; why would one need a credit card to receive an award?
Why would the word "user" imply payment?
Indeed; I would have expected it to search globally, the same way it works when you first open the page. It's cool and useful that it works like it does, but it wasn't obvious to me. Thanks for the hint GP
I wonder at which point smartphones will become fast enough so that people will stick the same phone for at least five years or so.
Of course they're more prone to physically breaking than the desktop PC, so they'll be replaced sooner than desktops no matter how well they're performing.
