Here are CVE details for each browser:


It looks like each of them has had their fair share of significant security flaws. Does anyone track how quickly flaws are patched for each?

Comment Re:Spiritual successor of Nexus 5 (Score 1) 55

I replaced my Nexus 4 with the OnePlus 3 in July and have been very happy with it. The OnePlus 3 has great battery life, it runs and charges super fast and it can get a GPS lock outside nearly immediately without any network assistance. I used the OnePlus 3 during a weeklong backpacking trip in August and was shocked that it was able to log GPS all day and still have plenty of battery left at the end of the day. I imagine the 3T will work even better due to the Snapdragon 821 (~10% performance increase over the 820) as well as the higher battery capacity. Just be aware that Verizon and Sprint networks do not work with OnePlus devices.

Good question. Based on a logarithmic fit curve of the IMDb Top 250 movies (with an R^2 of 0.97), it would appear that larger lists would still contain movies with relatively high ratings. Currently the lowest rating on the Top 250 list is 8.0. Extrapolating from the fit curve, here are some other possibilities:

- a Top 500 list would have movies with a rating of >= ~7.8
- a Top 1000 list would have movies with a rating of >= ~7.6
- a Top 2000 list would have movies with a rating of >= ~7.5
- a Top 10000 list would have movies with a rating of >= ~7.1

It would be nice if IMDb revamped their top movie list so that one could arbitrarily choose the number of titles to show.

Comment Re:What does Cyanogenmod still offer? (Score 3, Informative) 49

With the granular privacy settings in stock, what does Cyanogenmod really offer over AOSP now?

Fast forward and rewind by long-pressing the volume buttons. I still miss that. Ultimately I ditched CM when the phone functionality of my previous phone stopped working for an extended period of time.
