- Microsoft proves the critics right: We're heading toward a Chrome-only Web | Ars Technica
"Last week, Microsoft made a major update to the Web version of its Skype client, bringing HD video calling, call recording, and other features already found on the other clients. And as if to prove a point, the update works only in Edge and Chrome. Firefox, Safari, and even Opera are locked out."

- Why can't I set the font size of a visited link?
"In theory, there is no way that a web page can determine whether a link has been colored differently.

"These optimizations are only applied when the loading experience would be painful to users. Specifically, they are applied when the network's effective connection type is "2G" or "slow-2G," or when Chrome estimates the page load will take more than 5 seconds to reach first contentful paint given current network conditions and device capabilities."
