    If I install IE9, it breaks GFWL and I can't play Dead Rising 2 or any other GFWL games.

    IE9 RC-1 was released today and it features several improvements. It's really worth checking out.

    I don't have a PC but a good man who I respect and trust used IE9 and he said it was serious business.

    That's good enough for me.

    Anyone else noticed that Opera has a little bit of delay between hitting enter at the home page and a new tab popping up? Memory issue, I guess? I didn't have it when I installed it.

    I won't install IE9 RC1 because IE9 breaks GFWL.

    Or, maybe, GFWL gets broken by IE9.

    My high opinion of Opera has lowered somewhat. Javascript errors fucking up the whole 'back' function is avoidable, but still kind of disappointing.

    As much as I love Opera, not actually being able to use eBay because of some bizarre inability to follow eBay's JS is really getting on my nerves.

    In Opera's defense JS is a big damn mess that's over used.

    I absolutely love Opera. By the way, Ebay works fine for me (?). I swear Opera was built for me with all the little idiosyncrasies built into it like middle clicking on the tab bar for to open a new tab, ctrl+z to open closed tabs, the right-click context menu (Dictionary, search, etc), and so on. I do prefer how Chrome syncs though, much better than Opera Link.

    I try Chrome and like it.. and then go back to Opera.. IE9 seems nice.. but then back again. FF feels like a joke to me now, he's the best friend I had in high school who I run into every now and then who is a raging alcoholic who looks like he's been dragged through hell and back - by his current girlfriend - but is always trying to 'improve' and be like others.

    But, anyone have a working Adblock for Opera? None of the extensions work for me..

    Does the built-in blocker not cut it for you? It's served me pretty well, although having JS turned off might contribute to that. I did browse the extension list for a bit, out of curiosity, but didn't find anything that seemed especially worthwhile.

    I've been using Fanboy's urlfilter.ini for like forever. Works well enough, even if it's not an extension.

    Fixed my eBay and Facebook woes. Turned out NoAds was screwing up eBay, and the bizarrely un-updated version of Redirect to HTTPS was causing the mixing up of all the links on Facebook.

    So, yeah... NoAds isn't that great and is ultimately unnecessary, anyway. I saw no difference between that and using the in-built filter (which is great for everything except most text ads).

    I just started using Chrome a few weeks ago, and I'm really loving the speed so far. I've got a couple extensions, but what are some essential extensions I should be using?

    I know I managed to make it even block Google's text ads once. I think those are generated with javascript, so I probably just accidentally created a rule that blocked it.
