The technological advancements of a nation do not automatically make all the inhabitants tech gurus on the field.
For instance my country has advanced offshore platform technology, yet you don't see me building floating bridges and discovering new oil fields.
Japan excelling in consumer electronics only means that a few of their companies are world leaders on the field.
To begin with things like that are nerd hobbies.

4chan has changed a bit over the years from a website standpoint.

I mean compare original 4chan, frames and all to today, where we have all these nice tools. Like auto thread updaters, image expansion, reverse image searching at the click of a button, the catalog, thread searching.

It's come a long way to make it more user friendly and less annoying to use.

Why is it so difficult for girls to understand computers? The vast majority of computer illiterate people that I have met (I met a lot, I was a helpdesk monkey), have been female. What is it with women and computers, they just have no idea what the hell they're doing?

Their brains or something must not function well with it, that's the only explanation.

Just takes a quick look at your resource manager and network traffic to delete that piece of shit from your computer.
>>
>>100365382
I know it eats up shittons of RAM, but here's the catch: it actually works extremely well when you let it eat RAM, unlike Firefox which crashes every now and then. Sure, it eats less RAM, but I'd rather have a stable and smooth browser rather than a buggy shit. Not to mention that the RAM consumption is noticable in the slightest with 16GB RAM which I have.

>>100365954

And that should bother me because?

I'm sure it's bloated as shit and eats up a lot of RAM and hogs your network line loads, but I don't notice it with my hardware and with my connection. In which case I'd rather just have a smooth experience rather than a laggy as shit one.

It's a symmetrical gigabit connection by the way, if that wasn't obvious.

That would be firefox.

And Chromium. The only non-Chromium components of Chrome are proprietary Flash and PDF modules.

>best standards compliance

hahahaha

no.

Firefox supports more web technologies and more web image format standards than Chrome. Chrome has the edge on HTML5 implementation, but since the specification is still in development that's something of a moot point. Degree of compliance there will fluctuate as new versions release, and web developers simply aren't using the problematic aspects of HTML5 until they know they're nailed down.

Ultimately, the degree of difference in terms of standards compliance is nearly immaterial anyway.
>>
>>100366360
>I'm sure it's bloated as shit
No.

>eats up a lot of RAM and hogs your network line loads
Yes.

The big point of Chrome is crash management, through "one tab, one thread". This means each browsing instance requests and allocates resources without sharing them, and removes all memory allocated to that instance upon closing. More memory and network load, but tabs crash individually, and there's little garbage.

>>100366641
http://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrome/

>>100366926
Chrome has better HTML5, better CSS3, better JS (FF is the worst-performing in this category). Not much, but it's there.
APNG and RSS/Atom work in Chrome with plugins.
Protocol support is identical.

The net difference between the two is negligible, with preference being a matter of taste.
>>
>>100366139
Admittedly I haven't used firefox for years now, got tired of it crashing constantly, tried chrome instead, never went back.
>>
>>100367914
Yeah they're all pretty much the same thing anyways. I keep on using Firefox because it's what I've always used.
>>
>>100367985
Suppose so. Also another reason to why I'm sticking with Chrome is the incognito mode, unlike firefox it doesn't close down the rest of the normal tabs.

Don't delude yourself, having a bigger knowledge about computers than the most average shit is only needed if you actually work in the tech field. Heck most tech support guys would be unemployed if it weren't for the tech illiterate masses.
>>
>>100369451
Bosses today are certainly like that, since they got into management type positions before computers were quite so universal. A lot of bosses at the moment struggle to even use a word processor, but these days you wouldn't be able to get the qualifications to be considered for management track without at least being capable of emailing in an assignment. There are still a lucky few getting promoted up through ignorance and inertia, but it's becoming extremely difficult. I've seen some dinosaurs too close to the lower end of middle management get isolated out of their jobs as the more tech savvy (uh. relatively speaking.) employees plan around them in email chains they can't or often simply don't follow.

If you're at the bottom of the heap today, and you still can barely turn a computer on, you're almost crippled.
>>
>>100369863
Not even the most dumbest blond doesn't know how to use mails or other shit they certainly mastered with their love for social media whoring. Like I said average shit, anything more than that is pretty much unnecessary, you have drones that will do the legwork for you anyway.
