@Ray, dons his Dick Turpin costume and hijacks the thread.
Well, hopefully not that terse of a move ... reckless interjection, perhaps. With 2 cups of coffee in my system, I am trying to remember exactly why I posted that to this thread...
Anyway, I am running the beta Chromium on this 64-bit Linux Mint and I am not at all pleased with how Google implemented the auto-start feature; what I thought was going to be a 'hard line' on this sort of autostart of multimedia on webpage activity has been reduced to just blocking streams with both sound+video. Video only seems to break-through easily. Further blockage requires user interaction on a site-by-site basis. PooPoo on Google and their Alphabet soup... they are beginning to act more and more like Microsoft every year.

In my experience, once a company hits a critical size, any pretence at occupying the moral high ground goes out of the Window (or should that be Windoze)
If the shareholders/advertisers/accountants want something badly enough, then to hell with security and the needs of the customer, get that feature out yesterday boys, if not sooner.
BTW Black suits you Ray..

ok so that's December and Janurary issues at some point, maybe even a triple first issue in march??.
i would think they'd be at least one if not two issue(s) in advance.
