the pint is, MOST people don't have much of a clue, they just want to get away from the MesS..... :/
Safari??? it is always there, its part of apple .. Its NOT the browser that 'makes it good' but the apple OS that does..
Firefox is not 'that' visible, Mozilla needs to 'step up' its profile!!
Another problem is that it takes a ****lot*** of work to make the latest FF easily workable, as the OLD version was...
HAVE A LOOK for pale moon, if you prefer the old style FF without webext.. :) and they have all the OLD plugins on their website!!
Hey its great to get such speed, B U T... it is also great to buy a sports car that can go 200 MPH.
You see the problem?? not that much money about, not enough places that will allow high speeds, not enough roads that are smooth, and long enough,
need new expensive, PC (home build) with 'everything' to get that speed... would you pay £5000 for that, and 4Gb/s net on top??
Only idiots think a tablet will do everything!! try using gmail ** the same way** you use it in windows.. filters, forwarding, etc..google's fault or not??
And most pc users cannot even find or know about anything other than FB etc... :O
The apple ipad is bad enough, just to clear ALL the tabs opened, it takes about 6 or 7 steps (this was on a friends **ancient** one! tvguide co uk tries to load app, but it fails- too old OS!!)
The term 'self-aware' is very misused by psychologists who think it means something far more complex.. A bit like a many astrophysicists who say 'space' and mean 'spacetime'..
NORMAL people know it just means 'you know who you are' Just remember that most animals DO NOT think like humans - have a look at the tv prog 'dog whisperer'
The only similarity is with a 6 to 10 month old baby, that most people understand.
You must have seen dogs and cat that are able to open a door, realize how a 'handle' works and read your 'body language like a book!
It would be great if humans had their great sense of smell, you could tell of your GF was coming down the road yards way!! :)
I have had calls from 00000000 and 123456789 !! :O
The only solution for the customer is to buy a 'call barring' -phone.. Panasonic does a very nice DECT phone with lots of fancy features.. If the caller is not in your number list, it does not ring (you can set the hours this operates), so goes to voicemail.. you can then 'bar' the number, so they will always get an 'engaged' tone..
As I said above.. https://www.google.com/advanced_search will show you how to add 'parameters' to your search, to get a good result..
Think,(NO, seriously!!!!) when you get your first car, do you just jump in, and start pressing stuff, hoping thing happen?? crash a lot, break a lot, your arm, feet, someones fence....
I am sure you know what you have to do FIRST!!! :) :)
and then many do not seem to have heard of ECDL....
Wikipedia is NOT that trusted, due to many people having 'too much access' to its content... many people online just refuse results from it..
So I google a lot, and find a **proper website** that has the facts I am looking for.. :)
brush up on your searching skills, and DO NOT just put random stuff in!!
NHS and BBC links should be better!! :)
start here, and you will see the 'advanced' way to use google!
Ok tested on my galaxy s8 (OS 7), firefox beta (85.0.0.-beta6) - better reviews on gplay..
set to 'desktop mode'
logged into my gmail account.
went to youtube
checked notifications... all there... :)
I forget, but I think I did switch OFF 'open links', ext DL manager' ,etc... no adblock, but I dont visit many sites..
I use 'opera beta' for most of my browsing, it has its own adblock.
I look in 'wonder' at people happy to use a 2 inch by 5 inch display, for their internet use, when I normally have 10 to 15 pages open on a 32 inch screen, with a proper keyboard and mouse...
have a try with these... all regularly updated, BTW.. :) I dunno, but you can ask on their brilliant forums! :)
https://www.palemoon.org/info.shtml - its very like the 'old' FF, with its own addons page
if you want something with the GOOD parts of the old FF, plus a nicer type of the new, try
An Open Source XUL-based web browser, featuring the well-known Firefox-style interface and operation. It is based on the Goanna layout and rendering engine (a fork of Gecko) and builds on the Unified XUL Platform (UXP), which in turn is a fork of the Mozilla code base without Servo or Rust.
I did note to my network admin (a couple of years ago, using win 7) that it was a bit unnerving that the rightclick 'delete' was perilously close to the 'rename' and 'create shortcut' function... don't worry that what the bin is for... a big problem is, if it is on a network share, it **does not** go to the bin, but disappears..
The problem with BT fibre back then is that they used a **totally** different spec...
A whole housing estate was wired with optic fibre, and when people moved in, it was found to be 'wrong' so it all had to be pulled out and replaced with cable!!
**tech guys, if YOU know why, do explain..
next point is, due to stupid 'standing line charges' on landline phones, *everyone* is starting to DUMP them for 'pay as you go' mobiles...
many others, depending on ease of use..
The following websites work ok, except some have limited functionality and look similar to that displayed on an Android phone..
If you want to use the old type of extension/addon, try these..
"Pale Moon is based on a derivative of the Gecko rendering engine (Goanna) and builds on a hard fork of the Mozilla code (mozilla-central) called UXP, a XUL-focused platform that provides the underpinnings of several XUL applications including Pale Moon. This means that the core rendering functions for Pale Moon and Firefox (and rebuilds) will be a relatively close match and that functionality in the Gecko core code"
"Basilisk is a free and Open Source XUL-based web browser, featuring the well-known Firefox-style interface and operation. It is based on the Goanna layout and rendering engine (a fork of Gecko) and builds on the Unified XUL Platform (UXP), which in turn is a fork of the Mozilla code base without Servo or Rust."
-- this means it has the good parts of the new mozilla , but not the bad..
