Bing is better in terms of privacy and has way less spam results (for me).

Direct comparison:

No one should use Google these days anyway.

Now that looks well-thought, if they even hide their own downloads.

Number of days to save history should be lowered inside options of course. 90 is deault? May be 10 is ok too ;)
These are the minimum days IIRC, so there is no notable increase...

Yep, but I find it useless to have an extra extension to make Firefox faster.
(And SpeedyFox can clean databases which cannot be cleaned by extensions while they are actually used.)

No, but it takes less effort to click a button.

Thank you, Tuxman and CleverCat; Yes, SpeedyFox works!!
Great to know that. :)

Firefox starts incredibly fast if you don't install hundreds of add-ons and purge your databases sometimes.

Indeed, superboyac, and I am one of those willing to pay for some really good software - when there is a good reason to do that. So the payware should have something really outstanding (for me).

I run Fences from Stardock.
Wow, great. Thanks for the hint (although I'm not Curt).  :Thmbsup:

I wonder what makes this application worth more money than the free CopyHandler (which I use)... :)

A media company should not send a correspondent to any country if they can not communicate in that country's native language.
Now this leaves not much room for "standards" in any way.

ZOMG paranoia...

BTW, Skype is insecure and has known backdoors every few versions. Not a good thing, is it?

If the education system in Germany failed to teach you why English has become dominant, I'm certainly not going to try to do so.
The education system in Germany currently tries to teach young children British English. While I thought that B.E. is not so popular at all, the main problem is that not everybody will work for an IT company in his forthcoming life, so basically he should be taught to speak good German when talking to other Germans.

Standards are alright, but the language I communicate in is not standardized, it is chosen individually. The new German foreign minister, Guido Westerwelle, forced a scandal when a British journalist wanted to ask him in English during a German press conference and he just said "we're in Germany here". Now try to imagine the other way: A German journalist trying to talk German to an English politician in England (or, let's say, the States). What would you say?

I just can't stand my fellow men talking Denglish all day. It is, surely, a culture loss.
The lowest floor of a shopping center in Brunswick is called the "basement" (yep, basement, not "Keller", "Untergeschoss" or whatever). Car manufacturers add "engine start/stop" labels to the control panel while they, interesting!, add French labels for French cars. I wonder why everyone accepts that in France they speak French but they expect us to talk English instead of German.

Still talking about arrogance? Oh, come on!

2039
Yeh.. thought so.  :P

I can say that I want some of its features; especially the word search & highlighting buttons.

Living Room / Re: Google's Eric Schmidt has a stupid moment on privacy

Up to now I can easily withstand the several temptations to register anywhere.

I wonder why it actually is said to be English. A German invented the computer, a Swiss invented the WWW. Time for a change, Obama would say.

2043
It is not a positive sign that most people prefer speaking a language without any grammar. :P

I am fluent in both languages and I like learning new languages, so am I not a globalized man now?  :D

2044
It is also arrogant to expect everyone to speak English. In Europe you'll reach a wider audience with German.  :P

2045
Of course English is ugly. It doesn't even have grammar. "Add an s, and you'll have the plural", lol, [flame] now we all know why the Presidents of the United States are a bit... illiterate.  :P [/flame]

English is not the global language, Chinese is. When I take non-primary languages into account, there are also some countries in Africa for German... so you'd better accept that not every software in this bloody world has to be in English.

 :Thmbsup:

2046
In Europe, German is still the primary language of many countries (Germany, Austria, parts of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, even in the Netherlands they speak German). English is not.
I wonder why these US-American weirdos think that their broken English accent is the one and only global language. Sort of arrogance, I guess.

 :P

2047
Ah, alright then.  :D

You can also open a file in a viewer without actually viewing.  8)

2049
When you have a repository notes mode ala WriteMonkey, is that viewing or editing?
An editor is always a viewer, but not the other way.

2050
German text?
I can perfectly live with that.  8)
