    I can confirm that my new gaming PC is very awesome!

    So I recently built a gaming pc inside an old Mac Pro case with the Laser Hive kit. My 2015 iMac with half the amount of RAM as my new PC can open about 75 Chrome tabs before crashing, let's see about my new PC. Ok, I'm back.

    Very strange issue on an iMac

    I've used Safari since it was first invented and never had any major problems with it. Now I have a few work sites that deny my logins on safari but work fine on Chrome and a number of other sites the page ever loads at all in Safari and is instant on Chrome. I don't get it.

    Gmail now has a recurring pop-up ad that asks you switch to Google Chrome—is there a setting/Safari extension I can use so that I never see it again?

    When I go to Gmail in Safari, a little pop-up ad appears in the upper right-hand corner saying something like "Switch your default browser to Chrome" and only has a Yes or No option—no "Never ask again" option. It's annoying to try and check email, but first have to click through this ad each...
