I use Firefox whenever possible, partly because Google's "Chrime" was notorious for feeding info back to Google servers, and for not accepting third-party ad blockers or security plugins. It turns out that things are even worse:

Nightingale is not the first Firefox team member to come forward and make such accusations. In July 2018, Mozilla Program Manager Chris Peterson accused Google of intentionally slowing down YouTube performance on Firefox. He revealed that both Firefox and Edge were superior when loading YouTube content when compared to Chrome, and in order to counteract this performance issue, Google switched to using a JavaScript library for YouTube that they knew wasn't supported by Firefox.

At this point, it's very hard not to believe or take Nightingale's comments seriously. Slowly but surely, Google is becoming the new Microsoft, and Chrome is slowly turning into the new IE, an opinion that more and more users are starting to share.

Already noticed that Firefox no longer loads or plays YouTube videos properly. It keeps playing 2 delayed soundtracks at once, or simply hangs up with "Video Unavailable". Nice to know it was Larry'n'Sergey going full asshole.

Google now seems to be indexing WP talk pages, which is a relatively new thing IIRC.

Googling "hakuna matata" could be a common thing with the upcoming release of another Lion King film. When i googled it, the list of questions in the "people also ask" section includes the question "Is Hakuna Matata in the Bible?"

Actually the sentence "don't worry" are written in the bible too.

Unless you look closer, you might think that the answer is "yes, the sentence are in the Bible".

Looking at the talk page, it's more clear:

Actually the sentence "don't worry" are written in the bible too. In paul's letter to timotius (chapter 4, vers 6).

That's quite interresting, because many christians worry a lot. Obviously too much! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 85.82.201.47 (talk) 23:01, 24 January 2007 (UTC).

I checked; not so - niether of Paul's letters to Timothy (I or II) 4:6 contain the phrase "don't worry". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.186.56.137 (talk) 12:11, 20 July 2019 (UTC)


The answer to whether the phrase is in the Bible is "no", but i found it interesting that Google seems to index WP talk pages now.

Google search for "shovelware" returns:

Surprisingly, Wikipedia is the second link, and it makes more sense:
