April 2016 update: QQ IME is merged with Sogou, so now they use the same engine. The input quality of Sogou IMO is still second to none, but after these years, Sogou has got even more bloat. Google Pinyin hasn't been updated since 2014. It is virtually dead. The Windows 10 stock IME, Microsoft Pinyin, is probably a good bet, it is quite lean even ...

Mostly it is to prevent workers from uploading anything into the network, therefore webmailer, web2.0 services and the like are filtered out. Weighted phrase limit exceeded seems to be a hint on the working mechanism of the filter, that has a list of buzzwords weighed with a ...

Google is making multiple requests for 'pages' (which are not shown to you as pages) as you type, to offer you the drop down suggestion list. IE is caching the result of these, not sure why. Try Fiddler http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/ if you want to see more of what's going on between a browser and a web-server.

Although it's hard to believe sometimes, Google isn't magic :) Web search relies on an index and index is built of tokens. Usually punctuation is removed before tokenization of your query. Some special cases exist, which are probably determined from popular queries (For example, google recognizes c++). So, when you type $?, google throws away punctuation ...

Native Client allows web applications to send C programs to your browser to be executed locally, with strong security controls.

That way you can quickly access your passwords at the ...

If you pay attention to the status bar while hovering the link, you'll see that it initially points to the "clean" URL.

To verify my claim, just right-click any of the purple links and ...
