I just recently found out that "clicking" with the middle mouse button will open links in a new tab or close a tab (if clicking the tab.) All this time I've been ctrl+clicking or the occasional right-click > open link in new tab. This is especially helpful when I want to close a tab without sharing the contents with onlookers (like say... MT while at work...) as it doesn't show the tab, it just closes it.

Happily levelling my level 60s DK alt, except I cannot get the blood shield tracker add-on to work. I spend several days on this, reconfiguring, updating, resizing, recolouring the bars etc. But no blood shield bar shows.

I load another absorption tracker add-on and as the stubborn 0 on my screen persists, it dawns on me what mastery means for blood DKs and I remember what level you get mastery.

Bing is a Microsoft search engine?!? I always thought it was just one of those random things that gets put onto prebuilt computers... I didn't realize Microsoft was doing it...

I use Bing for mobile and DuckDuckGo for desktop searching. Only thing of Google I willingly use is Reader.

People have said that Bing is far better than when it launched. I just haven't gotten past the initial impression when it launched. It felt very unfinished. to not be able to use pretty standard "easy" searching felt off.

I've... never used it (short of somehow accidentally clicking it on the bar while typing something.) I use Chrome at home, so it's not even part of the equation, and I type in google.com into the address bar any other time I want to do a search.

You do realize that if you type any non-URL into the chrome's bar it will automatically google search it for you.

Yes, but then I generally end up with the Korean search page (previously Germany) which I don't want.

Not if you set it to use a different search engine for that.

using another search engine for chrome seems.... silly. But then, I don't have the same outlook on Google that most people do.

Also, I guess saying "I type google.com into the address bar" isn't entirely true either as google.com is my home page, so hitting the home button would be more accurate (assuming it's a new tab and not a new window.)

In Chrome my "home page" is my most visited site page, which is still locked to the same sites it was when they removed that feature. I desperately wish that they would bring that back.

Google knows best for you...

I really see Google in a downward spiral. The venom that is starting to be spilled by ex-Google developers, and the amazing failure of Google+, which is where all their resources are going.. It's amazing. Google is cutting all the tools that people use, and failing at putting their resources in Google+.

An example... I was setting up our corporate Google+ page (mainly to claim the name space), and guess what.. I can't link our YouTube channel into the video section, so I had to upload videos AGAIN to Google+. Really?.. they own YouTube...

It's really sad if Google+ is as lame as it is and they are supposedly putting all their resources into it.

There is also a new mount associated with it.

Yeah that's how I found out they upgraded the level range. I knew about the mount for a while because they announced to phase out the rocket a few weeks ago, but the level change apparently fell into a time when I wasn't really playing (Faillands patch).
