comment Chrome and Firefox will not stop loading Google Docs
Disabling Adblock entirely (via Settings -> Extensions) had no effect. The damn spreadsheet keeps auto-reloading. In years of Google Docs-ing (or is it Drive now?), I've never seen this.

comment Midnight Commander doesn't use .mc/ini file
There might be something else going on. If I edit ~/.config/mc/ini before launching mc, change, say, old_esc_mode=0 to 1, then launch mc, exit it, and check that file again - old_esc_mode will still be 0.

Excellent! It's open source and does the job.

"GPU Compositing" no longer exists in Chrome 38 and I experience the same mouse over lag when mousing over links. No Flash installed.

comment Google Chrome: current address outside of omnibox
I'm not on the dev channel actually. Chrome definitely updated itself - the scrollbars got their arrows back.

comment Google Chrome: current address outside of omnibox
I highly doubt someone would accidentally enable that flag. This coincides with me definitely NOT enabling it 4 days later, so it may be a Chrome update.

comment How can I re-enable the path in Chrome's address bar?
@Ramhound: yes, I have. I haven't installed anything new. Chrome crashed, then when it restarted - boom this annoying change. I hadn't messed with chrome://flags either. I assume there was an update, though I don't have a precise recollection of the version number prior.

Capture Fox ceased development (stuck at Firefox 6). Anyway, was it capable of recording the screen outside of Firefox?

In addition to searching in the history, I would also like Chrome to search among its already opened tabs, like Firefox.

comment midnight commander : how to invoke drop down on directory history list
If you like text-mode file managers for Windows, a far more capable one than MC (which I love and use on Linux), is NDN. Plenty of shortcuts, and they just work, out of the box.

comment wget HEAD request?
-S will show headers, but it executes a GET, not a HEAD. In other words, it will fetch the entire URL.
