Well... ain't you happy I inflict them server maintenance cost then?
Yeah, yeah, I heard... It was a bit excessive.. But I don't expect Blizzard to start waging (private?) war on our behalf, the US government does it well enough for me...
Beside, I am already doing something against China, I am NOT buying any Apple product! I think this has more (financial) impact!
I downloaded the universe once. The storage scheme sucks to a high degree. If they had zipped it up before offering for download, it would have been less than a 25k file.

I think you are twisting my wording, but no matter, I will attempt to use simple enough word you can understand.
It runs Overwatch at my native screen resolution and max frequency with all software option and level of detailed maximised, such as shadow, occlusion, max number of polygons, etc...
Who knows, it might even more impressive on a more impressive screen hey?
OK, I read it back, and I've probably misread it the first time around.
You wrote "ultra high graphics in 2550x1440".
Somehow that registered in my brain as "ultra high definition" (UHD), the name generally assigned to 4K. I was just pointing out that 2550x1440 is not the same UHD.
My video card is a few years old, and the only thing I play nowadays is GTA5. After I got myself a 4K monitor (a 40" TV, actually), I replayed it, after I found out the card supported 4K output (which isn't even what I had initially purchased it for). Being that it was already a few years old by that time, I had to hold back the game settings a little...while everything's smooth as glass even at 4K, if I try to bump settings any higher, this is where the game starts to complain the video card is running out of memory (it's got 2GB).
Quite lately I have been seeing this design tool being used on CodeProject articles too, but I never wanted to use it.
Right now I was looking for a tool and went in search of the one, but I cannot find it. I did a bunch of other tools that do the same thing, design the architecture, but I am unable to find this specific one.
Edge Chromium loads it in 2,59 seconds.
The old Microsoft edge loads it in 0.88 seconds.
With Opera I can't even start the timer so let's say 0 seconds.
Is it that Edge Chromium had to go query the DNS, hit the CDN servers, pull the data, then older Microsoft Edge brought it in the memory for caching purposes and Opera just copied the already loaded page and show it to you?
Ignore the rest if you enjoy using Opera
I am not saying that I do not like Opera, but lately, Opera has been hijacking my sessions from other browsers, especially Chrome. And I have hated that, always. I tried to post this as a bug on Chrome but one of the Opera engineers said that they ask for permission. But, clearly, they never do. It is merely a download, install and continue where you left off in Chrome.
At least Firefox and other browsers try to request data import, Opera never does, and brings in the logged-in sessions for several sites.
It might be that Opera uses the same internal engine that is why, or whatever, apart from the internal VPN and ad blocker, the browser sucks.

I had nothing in particular against the old Edge, excep one couldn't drag the current URL from the tab bar...
So I might not care about the new Edge if they have the same basic UI functionality missing...
