Gave me a chuckle…

Road Rage

…not far from the truth I suspect.

There are quite a few oddities with Mircrosoft’s new OS, although it would appear to be Vista Service Pack 3 which brings a new rather drab UI in much the same way that  Win7 was Vista with tweaks and a slightly prettier face.

In short you get a rather fugly flat looking desktop and some tiles on a brightly coloured “Start” screen that might be OK on a tablet, however on a big monitor they are swamped and to be frank who would stare at that screen for more than a few seconds?  It might be a fun place for people who smother their desktops with icons, becomes a major irritant every time you hit the Winkey to switch windows to a place that brings nothing useful to a desktop PC.

First up Winkey + H which allows you to Share, or at least it would if it actually worked.  Why add a none functioning keyboard shortcut?

I previously mentioned the fix for the taskbar tab preview in Windows 7, which Firefox 4 beta has on by default.  This means I see millions of stacked tabs during normal usage, worse still, hovering over the tab means I see loads of pages like this.

This is how to remove them:

  • Type about:config in the Firefox address bar.
  • Skip warning message
  • Type: browser.taskbar.previews.enable in the filter box
  • Change the value to “false”

Another annoyance with fresh Firefox installs is running a search results in Google appearing on top of the page you are looking at, which is unhelpful in a tabbed browser if you want to cross reference something.  This is how to change this behaviour so that search result always opens in their own tab:

  • Type about:config in the Firefox address bar.
  • Skip warning message
  • Type:browser.search.openintab in the filter box
  • Change the value to “true”

/rant mode off

I don’t like football, but usually don’t mind the world cup, although this year may change that…

They were crap.
