Aeon Essays: “Why is English so weirdly different from other languages?”
English speakers know that their language is odd. So do people saddled with learning it non-natively. The oddity that we all perceive most readily is its spelling, which is indeed a nightmare. In countries where English isn’t spoken, there is no such thing ...

The Guardian: “Eve Online: how a virtual world went to the edge of apocalypse and back”
Eve’s narrative appeal has little to do with formal authorship. It is constantly evolving, but not in the same way as other so-called massively multiplayer online games, such as World of Warcraft , where new stories are added by a collective of scriptwriter...

Hey, +François Beaufort, sorry to bother you again, but I noticed something very concerning today: AdBlock updated (I think) and now in the Extension list it enabled by itself 'Allow in incognito'; even worse, in some versions of Chrome the check box is disabled (disabled in Canary/Win 7 and stable/Win XP at work, but modifiable in Stable/Win 7), meaning I can't even remove that permission! I didn't get any new permission screen either, in any of the Chrome instances I use. Can extension do this, grant themselves permission to incognito mode without user consent?! This seems like a pretty major breach of privacy to me - possibly even breaking Chrome web store rules. If you disable the toolbar button you won't even notice the extension is running! Thanks for looking into this...

hi, +François Beaufort! Usually when hovering over a link, Chrome shows a small tooltip with the link address in the lower left corner. I noticed recently that the tooltip is gone... Is this a bug or are you planning on removing this in the stable version as well? Because that indicator is very useful to check where are the links heading... I'm currently on version 34.0.1833.5 dev-m.
Thanks!

I would prefer a solution to force the Flash player, it seems YouTube switched HTML5 on for everything I watch in Chrome and the playback quality is horrible, every time I open another tab or load a page the video stops playing until Chrome loads the page. That never happened with Flash.

The same thing happens in Chrome with the promo message for the App launcher, it nags you to install a simple shortcut and keeps coming back even after you dismiss it...
