And not forgetting that the data is formatted on input so when it then turns something into a date or whatever, when you then go and put the correct formatting in the 10/07 that was turned into 10 July gets converted into complete irrelevance.

It is called progress and the usual developers knowing best without any concept that someone may not want it to do this. The fact that you do not appear to be able to turn it off is just as infuriating.

It is "usability" gone nuts.
