"Typing Insights"? - O&O has you covered:

Then again, if you keep things in your Google account, your Outlook account or surf the web... they will surely find things out about you (even if you don't have a Facebook account).

How one guy made his (heart wrenching) way to Python:

I'm not a coder, but similar stories will surely help some to appreciate and maybe eventually embrace this.
The above story i originally found at:

Kind of miss the ol' StumbleUpon site at times...  :(

Anyway, i stumbledupon this site today and couldn't help to laugh at things posted on their "about" page:

What is The Babylon Bee?
The Babylon Bee is the world’s best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims. We write satire about Christian stuff, political stuff, and everyday life.

The Babylon Bee was created ex nihilo on the eighth day of the creation week, exactly 6,000 years ago. We have been the premier news source through every major world event, from the Tower of Babel and the Exodus to the Reformation and the War of 1812. We focus on just the facts, leaving spin and bias to other news sites like CNN and Fox News.

If you would like to complain about something on our site, take it up with God.

Unlike other satire sites, everything we post is 100% verified by Snopes.com.

Funny that you would mention that IainB!

Had (once upon a time) Tim's role in elementary school and was just as timid as he.  :o

Merry Christmas to you all and may God bless you too!  :-*  :Thmbsup:

Have been using this security software at the free level for a while now and find it quite helpful.
Hope it can be of help to members here.

The details about a year's free subscription contest to the pro version:

Thanks Wraith808 - would have never known about that.  :up:

Had posted on their forum but it's lost in the wind.

Have un-installed Brave all-together (on Android too).

Bookmark+Password import was ineffective.

Even Vivaldi (who aren't as well funded) do a better job at both!   :-*

Cat looks like it's impatiently waiting for a passenger.

A second look at the car seats and you may see two dark eyes on each seat.
Black cats as in previous post?

No matter which freeware site i go to, i always upload or check via VT browser extension before "igniting" the app.

Whether Onedrive starts up with or without FARR, still get a problematic sync message.
Yup, Onedrive tells me it can't sync FARR if it isn't set to sync in its folder options.
You can't win!

13
Soorrry!

Yes, FARR folder is in "documents" which i have "unsynced" from Onedrive and thus should no longer have that notification.

Just noticed that Windows 10 "My Documents" is now only "Documents".
Have to quit dabbing around with Linux and concentrate on Windows only.

14
I don't recall ever explicitly giving Onedrive permission to take over "My Documents".
As far as i know (think), Onedrive desktop syncs "documents" with Onedrive "documents" online.
Isn't that the way it should be?

15
C:\Users\padre\Documents

16
I've disabled Onedrive (a pain in the *** compared to Dropbox).

17
And why would FARR install by default to Onedrive documents folder?

18
How did it get there?
Does FARR install there by default?

Maybe i should try to re-install FARR and check if there's an option about that?

19
Find And Run Robot / What is FARR's connection with Onedrive?
« on: July 23, 2019, 08:10 AM »
I've got Onedrive by default and sync it only with Documents.
Why FARR is messed up with this is beyond my understanding:

Must always exit FARR for Onedrive to finish its sync.

I use OneNote clipper to save text from pdf articles.

I mean in the bar at the bottom.  I'm not sure if SlimJet shows it's downloads in the bottom bar...
?
Thought my screenshot via Screenshot Captor wasn't that bad!

So it's not working for you - well, my Brave sync code isn't registering on their service, so i guess we're even!

VirusTotal extension is a good addition for (Firefox and) Slimjet (or Chrome based clones):

@wraith808 - perfectly agree with the goodness of being able to choose what pleases us most.  :Thmbsup:

For the record:

Here is Vivaldi downloaded with Slimjet:
http://imagizer.imag...g924/1993/95Foce.png

Here is Vivaldi downloaded with Brave:
http://imagizer.imag...g921/5158/0rgOYy.png

Both have Dark Material Pro theme.

23
i stumbled upon "dark theme material pro":

It looks a lot like the dark theme that comes built-in with the Brave browser. :Thmbsup:

I see we have a "brave" fan here!
Well, did download Brave to compare and its default dark, or dark theme from Chrome store or even Windows dark settings still not as nice.
The "Dark Material Pro" installed for Slimjet has greyish tone for inactive tabs, thus making the active one more noticeable.

Themes aren't everything, but when i find a nice one, i stick to it for a long time.
Slimjet's bookmark autohide and scroll through tabs with mouse just enhances this feature.

24
Don't spend time browsing for themes, but after removing a "morpheus dark" which i could no longer find again,
i stumbled upon "dark theme material pro":
https://chrome.googl...jkabkjedhbdbobofjigm
I like the way the active tab stands out as black and the others more greyish/light black.  :-*
Fits in well with browser gui style too!

If someone finds similar turquoise, i'd take it out for a spin for sure!

General Software Discussion / Re: Mozilla shoots itself in foot
« on: May 06, 2019, 07:59 AM »
@Shades - we are creatures of habit.
Firefox has always been a love/hate relationship for me.
Nightmares of extension incompatibilities, slow to boot and surf...
Still, no matter how often i've gotten upset with it, for some reason, i just come back to it.
The others just don't match it.

@anandcoral - good for you!

Had beta installed and with "Firefox Data Collection and Use" re-checked, all came back to normal the next day after the hick.

Wonder if it's not a Mozilla tactic to get users to leave these options on?
Conspiracy? oh! oh!
