    And they will continue to make these "unintentional" mistakes because they get away with it.

    It seems a lot of people have zero idea what "review" means, or know but don't care. Steam has to exclude these reviews, just like they do with unrelated, off-topic negative ones.

    Except that a lot of websites are PWAs already...

    This practice has been obvious to any discerning Edge user as well. (it used to be a fun party trick to change the Edge user agent string to Chrome and watch everything magically work--until Google got smarter about sniffing out the browser.) Google's dominance of the web with sites like Search, Gmail, Docs and YouTube give it enormous power over browser choice. It's astonishing to me that more attention has not been given to this obvious abuse of market power. Microsoft eventual response--to adopt Chromium--was a completely out of the box move that probably greatly surprised Google. By guaranteeing compatibility with Chrome-only websites, plus doing the right things for the Windows platform, Edge has a real chance of taking away Chrome market share for the first time. Hopefully Microsoft will continue to work with Mozilla to help Firefox support modern Windows features as Mozilla has been doing more recently.

    This is nothing like UWP. PWAs have been around for years and not just from MS.

    Exactly as I've said from the beginning. Horrible idea, horribly executed and not ready for prime time. You have to start some where and they took the first leap. I don't see a problem here. You will always have a few issues when you develop something new and cutting edge. If we didn't have some kinda try and fail in innovation we wouldn't be typing here as we speak. I don't believe the price is right it shouldn't be but maybe $1200 tops though. If the phone breaks mere days after first use, it's not even worth $10, let alone 2k, or even the 1.2k you speak of. You don't "start somewhere" by offering consumers garbage, you extensively test that new technology in the long term before you release it. This isn't some random software glitch that can be fixed in an update. People need to stop thinking it's okay for consumers to be testing monkeys for corporations in their endless greedy quest for money.

    This is a monument that drives revenue, they are not doing it for Christianity. They could also use a tax break on some cash

    I think you are remembering slightly wrong. The U.S. Government sued Microsoft for monopoly and ultimately precipitated what Vanity Fair calls "Microsoft's lost decade". But Microsoft never did any of the filthy things companies do these days. For example, Microsoft was sued for including IE with Windows. Nowadays, Google and Apple do this for their own browsers but, also prevent other web browsers to compete on their platform on equal grounds. You can install any browser on iPhone, but that browser's engine must be Apple's WebKit and there is no way to make it the default web browser.

    There is NOTHING in this world that would convince me to use Chrome. Or anything Google for that matter. They became a slimy dishonest mega corporation. Firefox all the way. There are some good alternatives, but they all use Chromium and that alone gives me this rather revolting sensation knowing that I'm indirectly supporting Google by using those... To make matter worse, Chrome isn't even all that good. Interface is retarded, it has pretty much no features and to have any of them you need like 20 extensions minimum which turns it into a fat slow pig. I really don't get it what people see in it. Firefox, Opera, Brave, all these are WAY better than Chrome. Yet somehow Chrome has massive majority usage share. Of course something stinks of rot...

    One of the original intents, if not THE original intent, was to use Sets to shoehorn [original] Edge into every shell interaction. Similar in many ways to the thinking behind integrating IE into the file browsing shell in Windows 98. Now that [original] Edge is going to be waylaid in favor of "Edgium" the decision to drop Sets, as originally purposed, seems logical.

    Just as well. This seemed a bit ambitious and confusing. Just add tabs to Explorer and tabs to other apps. Don't make them drag and drop between apps and things.

    I know it's only been a couple weeks, but I am already loving the new update cadence from the Edge team. Somewhere a legacy IE dev is shedding a tear.

    There is a joke where I live about charity and its relation to PR. It's not exactly funny after translation, but you'll get the point (I'll use a western name to simplify things): Reporter: Who donated this money to the charity? The representative: Mr. Jones wishes to remain anonymous.

    Honestly, I do not think Intel were ever in the game. It's probably why Apple settled with Qualcomm.

    Considering the size of games, and the price of this, they really should have not just removed the optical drive, but replaced it with an empty SATA HDD/SSD bay. I'm sure they have the space inside, and it's just a slot and a connector, but it would make it so much easier to expand its capacity is a clean way, enticing users to buy more games.

    I don't think I would feel confident if they put some graphic designers in charge of the security of their online services. If you're only talking about money, both are important for their office softwares and backend, I really don't think refreshing the icons has been done at the expense of their security.

    What a hypocrite. At Foxconn, people are killing themselves because they are gravely exploited under the pressure of Apple to enrich Tim Cook and his people them beyond imagination but they get no help at all, no one cares for those people. Same for the kids who are digging lithium carbonate out of the caves, so Apple can sell their phones. But if a building takes fire, oh god, let's help them rebuild this structure, it's so human to help France now who are in desperate need of financial support for a church, whose people have killed many, many people during the crusades a 1000 years ago. How pathetic!

    This is exactly what Google does... It was the same type of crap that Microsoft was fighting with IE9+ and Edge. Slowing down Edge, manipulating developers to move away from standards, Google services 'requiring' Chrome to use all the features, even though they work just fine with FF or Edge if they pretend to be Chrome, and on and on and on. I assume the issues with Firefox and soon Apple/Safari will now escalate further, as Google won't be directly targeting Edge-Chromium for a while. However, make no mistake in thinking that everything will be 'good between Google and Microsoft, as Google will move as many new and existing features as they can from Chromium into Chrome development, making these proprietary. (Historical example - Android - Google moved and is moving as many important technologies and features into Google Services and Apps and away from the Android OSS project.) Google doesn't care about Chrome, they care about the data Chrome collects. When people started going to http://www.ebay.com instead searching for 'XYZ product' - Chrome was the answer to finding out exactly what the user was doing on Ebay. The same concept applies to non-commercial sites, like going directly to a bank or social site, Chrome was designed to track a user's activities inside these sites. The fact that users have been so gullible and blind to what Google has been doing is a sad testament to the clueless state of society. At one time people understood that if something is free, it is too good to be true. Google doesn't dump millions into Chrome without a return.

    Most to some degree. It's becoming how quickly they can react (if at all) when it happens or does someone have to tell them first (embarrassing). I know it's not the easiest thing to do, but I do wonder why accounts with that kind of access do not have stricter auditing and geo-ip controls in place. If that user works in Seattle for example, and that's where they always login, any logins elsewhere should immediately be dropped and the appropriate people notified.

    actually, most users are too stupid. Just today, I was on the phone with someone and asked them which web browser they use and they said "Bing". They said Our kids like Chome because they think it's a better search engine" Then a couple of days ago I got a call from someone who had a computer issue, they thought it might be caused by "Frontier" because they heard frontier just did an upgrade and some users were having issues. So what was the issue she was having? Her screen was black when she would try to wake her computer up. That same day I got a call from someone who was also telling me he was having problems with his internet provider as well. What was his problem you ask? Chrome wasn't opening up when double-clicked. .. I rest my case.

    What a joke. The store has been open and selling and storing personal details for more than a year now and they're just getting around to having email verification. Everyone should go to their store to see if they have an account registered to their emails, odds are pretty good that you will, even if you didn't create it yourself. The sooner the egs goes away and dies the better off we'll all be.

    Gosh, you are so creative. Did you come up with that all by your lonesome self or did you borrow it from one of the 1,000's of others that have used previously? I borrowed it from one of the 1,000's of others that have used previously.

    It honestly wouldn't surprise me if they did, but as of right now this is just speculation... Correlation=/= causation. Without a smoking gun, Mozilla or anyone else isn't going to win any kind of anti-trust case or anything...

    Hello, It is likely that it is quite illegal for your employer to garnish your wages, especially if a computer was accidentally damaged during a routine move. Contact Scotland's Fair Work Convention and they should be able to advise you further. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
