Watch out for comment spam linking to facebook profiles. I don’t know exactly what spammers get out of it but it seems to be becoming more common. They add misspellings so that it’s not seen as a direct copy as easily.
For some reason, it fooled Akismet..
Notice the difference:
Unfortunately, Gnome-shell is not very good from a usabiladity peradspecadtive in its curadrent state. The deigsn (at least the big picadture) has not exactly changed that much since it was introadduced, and while A LOT of those who have tested it have given negadaadtive feedadback, Gnome has choadsen to stick with its deigsn. Just check out the comadments on every blog entry, every youtube video, every news item on the interadnet about the shell. Although I see posadiadtive feedadback as well, they are far between. That Gnome-shell have not taken this feedadback into conadsidaderadaadtion is just arroadgant and a big “fuck you” to the loyal Gnome usera0base.Its sad that Ubuntu felt they had to make their own shell, howadever, its even more sad that Gnome-shell have not lisadtened to the criadtique of the curadrent state of affairs.If I peradsonadally have to choose between Gnome-shell (as it is now) and Unity, I will go with Unity. I am sorry, but the curadrent way of switchading between tasks are just not acceptadable in Gnome-shell.

Unfortunately, Gnome-shell is not very good from a usability perspective in its current state. The design (at least the big picture) has not exactly changed that much since it was introduced, and while A LOT of those who have tested it have given negative feedback, Gnome has chosen to stick with its design. Just check out the comments on every blog entry, every youtube video, every news item on the internet about the shell. Although I see positive feedback as well, they are far between. That Gnome-shell have not taken this feedback into consideration is just arrogant and a big “fuck you” to the loyal Gnome user base.
Its sad that Ubuntu felt they had to make their own shell, however, its even more sad that Gnome-shell have not listened to the critique of the current state of affairs.
If I personally have to choose between Gnome-shell (as it is now) and Unity, I will go with Unity. I am sorry, but the current way of switching between tasks are just not acceptable in Gnome-shell.

A follow up from my previous post;
Firefox 12 Currently
…has something like this to show trust and encryption (the colors are off but hopefully you get the idea, the actual blue and green are much nicer on the eyes):
[V] The Vanguard Group Inc, (US) https://personal.vanguard.com/us/CorporatePortal
[V] The Vanguard Group Inc. (US) personal.vanguard.com /us/CorporatePortal
[d] duckduckgo.com /?q=cheese
I’m curious if you can figure out what everything means in my proposal without explanation.
- Green is for trust and only for trust. Notice how the favicon is only colored at all when using Extended Validation. AFAIK it should never be a domain name.
- Blue is for encrypted and only for encrypted, and only used for the sub+domain name. I’m hoping this will provide a non-color cue for those who are colorblind, to differentiate between the two.
- I got rid of the greying out of text and moved to a bolding of the domain name, this helped due to my bad green/blue colors but might not be necessary in the real version
- Spacing between the domain name and the rest of the url to help keep them even more separate in a quick glance
- Oh, and the complete lack of https/http, I would want to see Opera’s awesome feature implemented where they hide them unless you click on the URL bar.
My overall goal was to try to communicate both a level of trust and a level of encryption, while making it easy at a glance. In addition, giving us the option in the future to really separate these two concepts.
Looking for suggestions, comments, and feedback before I try to propose it to Mozilla. Check out my previous blog post for what they are actually planning to do for Firefox 14.
