Google recently bypassed DNT and Adblock Plus and removed both from thier market place as it violated their T&Cs. YOu also cannot stop Google Analytics in Chrome which basically weighted my choice in favour of Firefox.

As for bulk, Chrome is actually hogging around 40% more resources than the latest version of FF.

your probably right on the bulk thing right enough but both the above plug ins are still on the web store for download

If you're scared of Google but still want to use Chrome. Try SRWare Iron.

Looking for help...... Can I rotate a video ?

I took a video on my phone at the Helix the other night but used it upright rather than holding it side on.

I have uploaded it to my laptop and it has opened with windows media player but the video is side on.

Help please....

Use VLC if you only want to watch it... If you want to publish it to you tube then this is how.
P.S the first option is free and should already be on your system if not active.

Get your free U2 MUSICAL MALWARE album out of your iTunes library with Apples removal tool. The sheer embarrassment of a pal saying to me why the hell have you got a u2 album on here almost put me back in the hospital.

Why can't i view embedded videos on here with an ipad ?

I can see videos on other sites and on youtube but can't on here.

I can also see everything on my laptop.

   

Is it something to do with flash ?
