Just curious as to why?

Do you "sign in" to Chrome and sync between devices?

comment Cannot connect to Google sites in Firefox
@Synetech: If it was an issue with the ISP's caching/proxy then wouldn't all browsers be affected? I would have said the 200 tabs is most certainly a contributing factor. I have gone over 100 tabs before and found it unmanageable!

A cunning plan to get folk to switch to the Google browser?!

comment How do you backup 340GB worth of pictures?
"2.5MBit upload" - From my experience I've never been able to get anywhere near that kind of upload speed with the cloud backup services I've tried. (I've been rather disappointed!) I have a 3.2Mbps upload. YMMV.

comment Changing tab opening order in Opera (3 2 1 → 1 2 3)
It's the default for Firefox, even without TMP.

comment Changing tab opening order in Opera (3 2 1 → 1 2 3)
@kapsi: I think you meant... uncheck "Open new tab next to active" (rather than "Reuse current tab"), but the result is as you describe.

comment Windows XP SP3 keep default Administrator as only Administrator
Are you referring to the "Computer Administrator" account? Not simply a user with administrator privileges?

comment Why would you ever want to use tape instead of a HDD?
In March 2011 Google recovered a large number of Gmail accounts from tape when it suffered multiple failures in its data centres (software glitch). They are reportedly one of the largest users of tape in the world. itbusinessedge.com/cm/blogs/mah/…

Tapes are more robust and easier to drop in your briefcase/handbag and take offsite.

comment Tick/Untick check box/radio button/toggle button from the keyboard
djerry certainly has a point. However, I don't believe there is a way to specifically "uncheck" (or "check") a checkbox/radio button regardless of its current state, unless the software provides this functionality (eg. a "select all" option perhaps)

comment Need to Change DNS to get Gmail to Speed UP
Interesting. I have been using Gmail for a few years now and have so far not experienced the slow down you mention. Nor can I repeat the issue, that your friends seem to be able to do, using your suggestion. The "standard cures" you link to are just generic speed-up tips for those on a slow connection - these should not be necessary IMO. I wonder if it's a regional thing - presumably your friends are all in the same locality? Do they all use Macs? How full is your inbox? That other user cites 4GB as a trigger. Must admit I am using less than 1GB.

comment Need to Change DNS to get Gmail to Speed UP
You say you "toggle between Google's two public IPv4 DNS IPs" - you should be specifying both at the same time as the primary and secondary DNS. ?

comment If a laptop is advertised as supporting WiFi n, will it support b and g also?
@DarthAndroid: Well that is a possibility, however, I have never come across an adapter in the wild that won't work at the slower speeds on 2.4GHz.
