76  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox begins its mass rollout of ads on new tab tiles on: November 19, 2014, 04:51:15 PM
Interesting

----------

The next Firefox default search engine: Yahoo Search

Google Search has been the default search engine of the browser for the past years with Google paying Mozilla money for that privilege.

While Mozilla put the money from the deal to good use, it made it dependent on that money at the same time.

Ever since the deal was announced (first back in 2004) I had a major concern: that Mozilla became too dependent on Google and that Google would not renew the deal.

Mozilla announced a new strategic partnership with Yahoo Inc. that makes Yahoo Search the default search engine in the United States on mobile and desktop platforms.

doteasy.com I used in the past. My experience was good but I eventually moved the domain in question to US based registrar.

Mine does look like that and I don't have anything installed to make them like that. I was under the impression that those are/will be the tiles we have been talking all along

The difference is simple and should not need to be spelled out. However ....
In this case corporations have profit to add/make by adding restrictions not removing them. Saying that in this case the same applies to gov is being intentionally anti gov.

Once upon a time, there were browsers with ads in them, in which you could pay to have them removed.

  • Opera
  • CrystalPort (very innovative tabbed IE based browser from the late 90's)
  • Plenty of others

But they all either disappeared or got away from that business model. I believe Opera was the only survivor from that era. (A shame, because I really liked CrystalPort and still miss some of its features)

And now here we have Mozilla that hasn't learned from the past and the mistakes of others, creating an even worse set of options with Firefox: ads or screw you, use something else...not even a paid option, without ads.


As online business models go one can say lots of things of course but regarding Mozilla I wonder how long their Google relationship will last (I guess you all know how much of their income is Google based?) Tiles is probably the wrong way but if they are smart they have been looking beyond Google because even if it does last for a while longer it stopped being healthy once Chrome came along

May or may not be practical for NANY  tellme

Offline tool to create infographics then export to image or other possible formats.
Portrait or landscape layout chosen then user can import images, choose from a variety of effects, bars, charts, icons and other shapes, add text, move to position and export. There are online tools that do this like infogr.am that I know of.

Example

This might be of interest:

The WordPress project is testing out Slack as our main real-time communication platform, replacing IRC and ad hoc Skype chats. When compiling a list of things people liked about our existing options, it was obvious that Slack was all of that and more, including:

Open for everyone
Friendly user interface
Easy asynchronous conversation
iOS and Android apps
Powerful customization abilities
Excellent search
Wait, replaces IRC? Yes. WordPress has always used Freenode for its real-time communication, and we’re especially grateful for what Freenode and IRC have done for Free and Open Source Software projects.

FWIW and kind of on that topic, WordPress with something like Advanced Custom Fields is really nice. I am currently working on something using both.

So kalos needs a form filler I guess, forgetting it has nothing to do with phone but the browser?

Android wifi with credentials doesn't auto connect?  Thought that's always the case, I know of people having the exact opposite problem, connecting when they don't want to and having to uncheck settings/'forget' connections

Actually I would feel more secure getting the program from Softpedia or FileHippo than the author's site. Certainly when it comes to bigger software like Avast for example.

Check boxes, reallocation (sort of copy paste) would make such a tool pretty flexible and usable

Hundreds of Dropbox Passwords Leaked, Change Yours Now
A few hundred Dropbox usernames and passwords have leaked on Reddit, likely from a third-party app and possibly as part of a much larger breach. Time to change your passwords.

The leak, which contains hundreds of accounts with email addresses starting with the letter "b", come from an anonymous user taking Bitcoin donations for the full leak, which they claim consists of millions of accounts, according to The Next Web. We're not sure how old these credentials are or which third party app they came from, but no matter what, it's time to do the same old song and dance we're pretty used to by now

Thanks, you are right of course. I will eventually have to go the way you describe or just abandon the project altogether.

Not saying it is what you want or hope but Link Collector is pretty simple and decent http://www.portablebookmarkmanager.com/

As for ideas, the thing I need most these days is related to text, csv, mysql and conversions in such formats. If by chance anybody cares I will explain further but its probably impossible, impractical and/or solves my unique need only.

The conclusion is that CHS is an amazing tool, it really is. </random praise>

Since it is being mentioned, I could actually use a tool like that and one that does opposite too.
