This brings up all sorts of questions... Indian or Thai curry? Massaman or Masala? Chicken or Beef? How spicy? Does coconut kurma count as a curry? Does this show a bias towards the Brits who will only be part of the EU for a short time? What about Chinese Or Japanese curry? Will they be fairly represented? Inquiring minds want to know....
Here in the valley we have both types: food curry, and Steph Curry.

Yeah, not bloody interested.
It's a web browser. It needs to stay as a web browser. Don't try to integrate with my desktop. Don't create new vectors for shitware to get inroads into my OS. Show me a damned web page, and then STFU.
Stop trying to make the #*()%^$&*( web browser part of my desktop. It doesn't belong there, and I'm not interested in it.
It's "innovative" stuff like this which turns into security holes.
Tell us how you really feel?
Because to be really good at programming takes an almost obsessive devotion to honing your craft at a young age, and girls are far too social to spend their summers in front of a computer in the basement.
I would argue that that isn't the case at all. While I was one of those little boys who spent way too much time in front of a computer and video games as a kid, that is mostly NOT the case amongst my coworkers (I'm a software engineer at Google). Most seemed to pick it up in college when they chose it as a major, and didn't have much or any experience with computer science before then. I would argue the main difference between those who succeed here and those who don't is intelligence, a hunger to learn (rather than just tinker), and a good work ethic.
I don't mean to say that being locked away in your room as a child programming, etc, would hurt in any way. Again, that was mostly me as a child. I just mean that what matters most is an understanding of computer science and software engineering principles (Data Structures, Machine Learning, etc) not can you bang out a few thousand lines of code in a few hours. I never do that at work. I think it's more important to develop as a child the ability to learn, process, and make connections between ideas, and that can happen via learning in any field.
Just my 2 cents for what they are worth.
