After about 6 million iterations of FF does it still focus new tab on the address bar and not on the first text box? I have it set as Google and expect to New Tab/Search, not New Tab/Type/Swear/Focus/Search.
Yes, I know there are add-ons for this, but they really should not be necessary.

When I'm reading about "IT advice" for skills in demand it is always something like that :
We need lots of web developers, And linux is good, we need more, But .NET is also in demand, new kids don't want to code on it as it is not deemed "sexy" But mobile app are booming, go mobile ! And java, we need java for system communication, But Embedded is also in demand for the next internet of things !!! Don't forget big data !
Then I ask myself, why in the hell developers that seek jobs should read such bullshit when whatever he learns, he will stay in demand.
When I read such IT post, I realize that my time would be as better invested in watching lolcatz videos... And I'm not even searching for job or contract... Silly click addiction. Back to code.
Learn the underlying concepts, we need IT people who understand the underlying concepts. You can then apply these in whatever language you like.
Learn to communicate with people. We need IT people who actually have people skills. Propeller-heads are a dime a dozen, there is real money to be made when you have solid technical skills and can also speak to humans.

Let's first define what's human and what is not. Without risking to insult anyone, there are a few sorts who seem to run from one meeting room to the next, obviously don't understand a word you say while producing endless streams of nonsense and buzzwords themselves.
Sure, I know they are not just drones that are fed until they are actually of any use some day. Still, I will never really understand the need for their posing, their politics and their other passtimes, just as they cannot understand that there are people who actually are there to do a job.
Fine, if that makes me one of your propeller-heads. I see far too few of them when there is work to be done.

I think "can speak to humans" means "can control the stupid", in this context.
I was forced to take journalism in high school and was taught to put the most important information first. I have noticed, with the rise of Google Scanning of online new sources, if they source even has any information, it is now buried at the bottom in order to force readership.
Ah, the ads.
To be honest, I won't pay for content online, not because I won't pay but because I don't believe I can pay and be relieved of all ads. My commercial free Sirius subscription is full of ads.
