How scientists colorize photos of space

I have Chrome 76 and when I used it to read an article on the NY Times, there was no mention of Incognito Mode.

Most people here couldn't use this, but I could. I have 1 Tracfones(LG 306g and Samsung Sky) and pay $20 for airtime around every 3 months because I get and make so few calls.

I personally used reopen closed window quite a bit to quickly get back to something in my history.  I'm sure others used some of those menu items also.  It would seem more customer oriented to put in an option to edit that menu.  I suppose I should be ahppy that they haven't totally killed Chrome yet, though.  (Yes, I'm salty about Google)

I can't tell from the linked article if they're completely removing those features or if they're just removing the menu items. I also use the "reopen closed tab" option (Ctrl-Shift-T) quite often, either after I accidentally close a tab and want it back, or sometimes I think I'm done with a tab/site and then a few minutes later I realize there's more I want to do there.

I'll definitely miss the feature if it's going away completely. But if it's just the menu item that is going away... I basically never use it.

Then again, I almost never use Chrome proper these days. Hopefully the Chromium-based offshoots I use (Brave and Vivaldi) will keep the features.

Can this grill-cleaning robot save you stress this summer?

Leave the grill in the Weber, let the bits get carbonised next time, run a wire brush over the grill, cook.

No stress, costs less than $2 every few years (for a new brush, use it for cleaning up welds too) ... all I've done for the last 30 years.
