I will have to research this, thanks @crazypotato!

comment How to set a key combination as a browser toolbar shortcut?
@crazypotato OK chrome://browser/content/sanitize.xul works, wasn't aware of that, thanks! My question is misleading, because I'm more curious if a link could execute any possible key combination, not just CTRL+SHIFT+DEL. Edited just now --

comment How to change the spacing before and after property values in Visual Studio?
@BillP3rd -- I'm using Visual Studio 2012, but I've seen this in 2010 as well. I'm not using any addons.

Thanks @FrankThomas, that's very interesting about sh and perl requiring this syntax, as I was wondering if there was a root cause for this in Visual Studio and in the conventions of many programmers' code I've seen as well...

comment Word 2010 — How can you make heading 4, 5, etc.. visible in the table of contents?
Nevermind, I just figured it out -- following these instructions I modify the field code to {TOC \o "1-4" \h\z\u} as was suggested. Then I click on the 3 vertical dots on the upper-left of the TOC again, right click the TOC textarea and select Toggle Field Codes again to revert it back to its' text. Then you have to update the TOC to see the change take affect.

Thanks for the quick reply @darthbith. Hmm, so when I do this, the entire selected text of the TOC is replaced with the existing field code {TOC \o "1-3" \h\z\u}. How do I stop it from deleting all of the TOC's text?

comment Are older browsers limited to certain operating systems and hardware?
@Synetech I certainly don't "expect everybody to be able to buy new stuff at the drop of a hat" as I know very good and well myself what it is like to be flat broke. But my misunderstanding was in the difference between hardware/OS limitations and personal choice not to upgrade browsers, and which might be more relevant / have more of an impact.

comment Are older browsers limited to certain operating systems and hardware?
Also, I am certainly not expecting that everyone be able to afford Alienware computers ha, but rather am looking for a rational and legitimate way for people to upgrade their browsers if possible, without having to consider getting a new computer... So I am curious about what hardware/OS might be an issue to doing this, or if such issues might be minimal for the average user.

comment Are older browsers limited to certain operating systems and hardware?
Thanks @Synetech! This is a very thorough answer, thanks for that. A site idea that I am working on would be contextually relevant only in the U.S., is not a business, and would be using API's that older browsers surely couldn't process... So in my situation, I think it would be ok to display the "upgrade" message. Though this may be "so 1990's" ha, it really should not be a big issue for a user to upgrade their browser if their hardware/OS allows it, and I feel is worth suggesting to those who haven't considered doing this. I would imaging that migrating bookmarks would be the only hassle.

Hmm, yes I was not thinking about those less fortunate, thanks @Moab for emphasizing this... I will definitely take that into consideration.

comment Is it possible to automate comments for classes, methods, constructors, etc.. in Eclipse?
Any idea though on how to generate a similar comment for the end of the main method? (as in "// end of main method ")

Thanks @Adam! These are excellent solutions, very interesting... I am using Eclipse Indigo, so I will be able to experiment with this. I feel somewhat scared to mess with the JDT jar, but I will definitely look at it -- the edit you are suggesting does seem minimal though. And I don't have time to write a plugin, but that would be an awesome project! However, Mechanical snail here is suggesting a plugin that seems to do this stuff as well.

comment Is it possible to automate comments for classes, methods, constructors, etc.. in Eclipse?
Thanks @Mechanicalsnail! My question may be somewhat misleading in that I don't actually comment the end brackets of everything, but in general only of the class and the main method. I agree for sure, that code should be clear and organized so that it is self-explanatory. However, I will sometimes comment outer nestings if there is a lot of inner nesting taking place. But yes, it is nice to have a plugin that gives you the option. ;)
