And money grubbing horrendous practices are basically a defect in capitalism (in its search for profits) and socialism (in it's take-it-or-leave-it quality model). Not that either has to behave that way - they just always do.
The us-and-them reminds of a currently active political candidate's strategy - but rallying Europe against the US is always popular for European politicians. Works here, too.
Hell, here in the US we have the same problem with DOMESTIC corporations. And there's the problem of our domestic corporations "moving headquarters" to foreign countries to cheat the citizens out of taxes owed, but I digress.
Money grubbing is business and economics at its finest. Given a small supply or high demand, the company can up its price to make more money. The main focus of business is to increase the stockholder's capital in the company. Look at the drug company selling Epipens. It is ugly, the company is making huge profits, but the customers need the medication. And, the company's product is protected by patents. Yes it does make me sick to see such blatant greed and disregard for your fellow human being.
Capitalism does work best in a mutually cooperative environment rather than a spy-vs-spy world. Maybe we can add restrictions to patents to where the holder cannot sell for more than 5% of some set value.
Only in Europe, and everyone at the time slammed the Europeans for it, calling them all the names under the sun for wanting to protect their citizens against the slimy, money-grubbing actions of greedy, foreign corporations.
Funny I only remember people saying "Thank God for Europe!"
I developed a bespoke HTML editor for use in our intranet as the editor for articles, etc. it works completely with IE9+, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Vivaldi and even Firefox. I have just been told that I might now have to make it work with Edge as we are having to now support Windows 10 as we get new PCs in. My solution is to make sure Chrome is installed as standard and default on our new PC images!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
I like Windows 10 and I like Edge. It is not a mature browser, but I really like Edge style and I use it by default. But I have to install other browsers for testing purposes and what bothers me is that they all want to be the favorite, the default.
Browsers not only request to be the favorites in the installation, they repeat their demand even if you tell them to not repeat it. And not only the browsers request to be themselves the favorites: many associated products try to set them as default, pin them, etc.
For me is the opossite: I like the convenience of not having to pin and select as default Edge. And if a windows update ensures that Edge is the favorite, that's make me happy
In Spain we say that "it never rains to everyones's taste": you can't please all of the peope all of the time.
Anyway, in the software by default war everybody should down the weapons to reach peace.
It's sad when I have to use the open with internet explorer option to get my website to display correctly. However, edge is improving especially after the last two feature updates I have noticed improvements. I still slap Microsoft by using edge for Bing points and then an hour later switch to IE mode for a website that refuses to load. Microsoft's probably like: "freeloader!" By now.
I use both, Chrome and FireFox for development and testing. I do need at least one browser where no development is going on and which is why I use Edge. I know, that I can always find my emails, drives, and other company related stuffs over there while chrome and firefox usually remain over-tabified!
Definitely, I am not gonna use it for development, but as a user, I have not found any such issues with it.
I'm enjoying my $5 Amazon gift cards every month. I spend about 5 minutes of each day using Edge; click.click.click....click, get my points and then close the browser, open up Chrome for the rest of the day.
