Comment on Firefox Health Report by EdmundGerber

If you truly believe in openness, then make it Opt-In, instead of having your users hunt around for the means to protect their privacy.

I agree that the car industry isn't open with the data and they don't go out of their way to make it useful to the car owners, but there are some ways the analogy holds up fairly well from a technical perspective. The communication mechanism on modern cars that allows the information to be retrieved is a standard, and there are many useful devices on the third-party market that enable car owners to tap into that data for their own purposes, whether it is gathering metrics about the performance of their vehicle, or even taking actions to tweak the performance. I believe all analogies break down at some point, but as long as we are clear about how we are acting different in regards to the contents and control of the data, I think it is a useful analogy to use as a starting point.

What I don't like with your car analogy is that car manufacturers are not exposing any of that data to the driver or even letting the driver (who most of the the time even is the *owner* of the car and therefore the data!) know what data is being handed over to service people or back to manufacturers. If we did this, we would go against all Mozilla stands for and so we are way more open about that and even add a feature so the user can check that data and what it means directly from his/her browser. We should emphasize on those points, but I feel that your analogy with the secretive and closed-up car industry doesn't help there.

Comment on Firefox & Page Load Speed – Part II by web design company

PageSpeed generates its results based on the state of the page at the time you run the tool. To ensure the most accurate results, you should wait until the page finishes loading before running Page Speed. Otherwise, PageSpeed may not be able to fully analyze resources that haven't finished downloading.

Comment on Firefox & Page Load Speed – Part II by web design company

Really good stuff —I've never pulled designs into PS for color layering, but will definitely be trying that. One thing I like to do if I'm stumped on a particular part of a page I'm wireframing is to photocopy the partially completed design a few times so it's easier to iterate on a section without having to redraw the rest over and over.

Comment on Do 90% of People Not Use CTRL+F? by Havvy

Fri, 13 Apr 2012 15:23:18 +0000

Cntl+F on Firefox has caused massive slowdowns whenever I tried it (back in 1.5-2.0 days) to the point that I avoid using it at all on Firefox. I *do* use it for Find and Find+Replace in text editors (kate, notepad++, gedit), but that's about it...but that is also where I deal with most of my textual content.
