  1. Review - Mozilla Firefox for Windows

    29.0.1 (May 9, 2014)

    The worst "upgrade" in the entire Firefox history.

    Firefox has lost its appeal, for now I'm _upgrading_ to Firefox 24.5 ESR, and when the next ESR release comes out, I will upgrade to Seamonkey.

    There's no way I'm downgrading from Firefox 28 to Crapfox 29.

    Autstralis could have been made an option, a new skin, with an option to use the classic Firefox UI with all its customization. Instead Mozilla stripped us of our choice and customizability. Let their UI "designers" burn in hell.

  2. Review - Mozilla Firefox (Beta)

    30.0 Beta 2 (May 7, 2014)

    2 for god awful interface which cannot be customized.

    And don't tell me about "Classic Theme Restorer". It's an addon which is bound to break any time.

  3. Review - Sysinternals Suite

    Build 05/02/14 (May 3, 2014)

    A missing changelog can always be found here:

  4. Review - ĀµTorrent for Windows

    3.4.1.30971 Beta (Apr 30, 2014)

    I'm not against a single ad on the screen.

    I'm against an app which is made of ads. And that is the modern uTorrent.

  5. Review - Avira Free Antivirus

    14.0.4.614 (Apr 30, 2014)

    A resource hog with an ancient UI.

    Absolutely slow.

  6. Comment - This IE9 graph speaks for itself (in 93 languages)

    14.0.4.614 (May 26, 2011 - 9:17 AM)

    IE9 is a nice and fast browser, alas it doesn't have a built-in or even official adblock extension. The most famous free extension is Simple Adblock for IE (which I install on people's computers) hides ads _after_ downloading them and it's not fully compatible with Firefox Adblock+ filtersets.

    Its second most important problem is that most malware writers target it, however monthly Microsoft updates are absolutely not enough to keep you safe (even if you have an AV solution installed).

  7. Comment - USB Immunizer: Last defense against auto-run malware?

    14.0.4.614 (Apr 29, 2011 - 3:22 PM)

    Windows XP, Vista and 7 now all include an update which completely disables autorun abilities for removable devices/storage (except for CD/DVD/BD disks).

    I don't see why anyone needs this software.

  8. Comment - Technology's most blatant design copycats

    14.0.4.614 (Apr 1, 2011 - 4:46 PM)

    The same doesn't mean they actually copied one another's interface. Tabbed interface is very handy (no one has come with anything better) and all browsers are meant to browse the Web.

    Following your logic all text editors (not office suites) have almost the same interface. Why? Because they are all meant to edit text.

  9. Comment - Apple's future without Steve Jobs won't be as bright

    14.0.4.614 (Jan 18, 2011 - 3:03 AM)

    Steve Jobs didn't himself create iPhone, iPads and all other devices Appled is famous for. He approved and directed his designers and engineers efforts in creating devices which conquered the market.

    And no, I don't think he's irreplaceable. Don't make God out of him.

  10. Comment - Skype experiences global outage

    14.0.4.614 (Dec 23, 2010 - 8:05 AM)

    All the talk about 'supernodes' seems like a total BS for me.

    It seems like they have a totally different major problem which they cannot for some reasons reveal.
