Since IE11 I switched back (to IE)
But I have one remaining issue...
From chrome I can drag an URL into a folder and voila, I got a link on disk!
From IE(11) I drag an URL to a folder and... I got some link vaguely related to the URL, but NOT the URL!
This is particularly frustrating with CodeProject! I want to save the article URL in the folder where I download the source, but I have to copy the URL, paste in Chrome, drag the URL from Chrome, so tedious..
Any idea on how to improve this workflow?
I see what you mean...just a shortcut, no URL, not even in the properties although the URL does show up on hover. So, just let the shortcut do it's job. Clicking it still gets you where you want to go right?...and you get the nice favicon graphic to boot!
I would put CA first and FL second but that's because I lived in FL for 27 years.
I would agree TX is getting there, I was stopped on my way back to FL through TX and me and my vehicle searched for drugs because I have very long hair. The probable cause was my GPS, located under my mirror was distracting my view. I traveled 6K miles in one month through a dozen or more states and had no problems.

I still find it astounding that in a land with so many "freedoms", including police who can draw firearms and handcuff people to simply speak with them, that the police still lack a basic right to randomly intercept people without inventing some kind of "probable cause"... Fascinating on so many levels.

I read the article and I disagree. The cops had observed the gathering for nearly a year and done nothing. Someone in office wanted it stopped, and forced the cops to act (wrongly). They should have arrested the homeless people that were a nuisance (drunk in public, relieving themselves in the park, etc.), rather than kicking out the act of generosity and punishing good citizens.
The article also notes that one of those 'homeless' were now working with the couple as a 'pay it forward' volunteer. What is wrong with re-habilitating homeless people into helpful and generous citizens?
Truth is, the politicians and cops don't want to put those people in jail, because then they have to pay for the meals, clothes, lodging, etc.
Cops aren't heartless. I bet they were happy to see the street people being helped. I guarantee someone forced their hand because they didn't want to see the homeless people enjoying 'their' park.
"But Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood said the Jimenezes had been warned one week earlier to stop their weekly feeding sessions after local residents complained that some homeless people gathering in the park were defecating and urinating on the grounds, and that some were showing up drunk at dawn.
"We as a city have spent millions of dollars to turn that park into a place for families, kids and dog lovers," Chitwood said. "We have an ordinance that says when people want to perform acts of kindness or charity that they must coordinate with our local social service agencies.
"They were told (the previous Wednesday) that if they come back there, they would be cited and they could risk going to jail," Chitwood said. "There is a segment of the homeless population that is homeless by choice. I don't want to impugn them all. But some are homeless because they are sex offenders, substance abusers and bank robbers. That's why we ask (Good Samaritans) to coordinate with our social service agencies, because they know who needs to be served."
