And the font looks like crap, I have an extension 'document font toggle' if I continue to visit slashdot after it's been horribly mangled then I'll not be allowing it to choose that god-awful font.

Having said that, if slashdot makes this new beta mandatory, I will 100% definitely be walking out for a couple of weeks to make my feelings felt, I recommend others do the same.

It is Google's job to sort out the malware it hosts and now the problem is known about it really shouldn't be hard for technically proficient people to root out and report bad apps.

Why would anyone want to use the browser made by an advertising giant that puts the NSA to shame with regard to watching everything on the web (google analytics, google+ web-bugs etc).

Todays Anti-virus software is truly pathetic, I don't waste my time with this useless nagware. I haven't had AV installed for over 5 years, that's worth catching and removing 1 virus for... if/when that happens.

Bike lanes? The idiots who wasted public money painting those on the roads should be put in stocks. Cycle correctly - not where some idiot who knows nothing about cycling says you should.

No, avoid the doorzone, don't cycle in it at all, I could well be dead right now if I cycled in the door zone - I had some driver fling his door open whilst a bus was coming the other direction up the road, the door just missed my handlebars.

Watch this and tell me you have any time to react when someone opens the door at the last moment.

Why endanger your life? - stay out of the doorzone and show this video to anyone who cycles because I'm sick of people cycling in the door zone and confusing drivers as to the correct place a cyclist should be cycling - I end up getting harassed for staying safe because of them.
