Google Now this is something that I find really interesting. We all know and love Google Chrome/Chromium (and if you don't, you're demonstrably wrong), but Google recently made a change in the developer version that ruffled some feathers: the URL field will no longer show the "http://". This made a lot of people very upset.

It's just that Thom reserves his right to insult others, while "normal" users would be banned for the same.

I hate Chrome. I hate it's privacy invading features. I hate that Ctrl-Q doesn't work in the Linux version. I hate that it doesn't play well at all with KDE Desktop. I hate the non-standard placement of its tabs.

But hey, it's just me. And according to Thom my whole mindset is just wrong....

I don't know what you're talking about. Words clearly always convey only and exactly their literal meaning. Thom was clearly calling a large chunk of his readership idiots. Clearly. Obviously.

And he must be burned for it. Burned. With fire!

Yeah, because I *never* get insulted on this website.

When you come out with crud like this comment and your ridiculous post about Opera Mini on the iPhone it isn't really much of a surprse you get insulted... you're insulting everyone else by this kind of rubbish.

So we can't really expect the editors to set a good example?

There isn't really a lot of banning that goes on around here, but as you're obviously new around here, we'll overlook it this time.
