RE: Go fuck yourself, Google.
I'm just kinda hoping that they would make it open-source, so that the community can continue to make at least small security upgrades, don't need anything more. I heard that someone is buying Opera and that it will be discontinued, but I didn't know it's going to be this fast...

Now, most of you will think I exaggerate and that there are better browsers out there. Here is a test. Go to http://www.tubeplus.com, start playing one movie with any browser. Count how many pop-ups and adds your browser opened. Now try it with Opera. Then, for the finally proof, go surf some porn sites. When I use Firefox, I don't watch porn, I keep closing all the pop-ups, but with Opera... Blessing. It opens only what you want it to open.

Ah, Opera...

RE: Go fuck yourself, Google.
I didn't even notice this until just now when I tried to post a comment. It said I was signed in, in the top left, but still won't let me comment until I sign in to my google account. Which I decided I'd do, whatever. Then they wanted my phone number. Like what the fuck? How invasive is this shit going to get? Some day were going to have to enter our damn social insurance/security (whatever the hell it's called) number to connect to the internet.

I love google search engine and gmail but I just gave up and use my gmail for youtube.

RE: Go fuck yourself, Google.
They've just changed the comments system over to be google+ based.
It doesn't work with my browser.
I click the text area to enter a comment.
A popup briefly appears.
The entire comments section is refreshed and my cursor is not positioned to enter text.
I'm usually pretty tolerant of changes and tweaks, but simple brokenness is highly discouraging.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

They can't really keep track of sub's without some info of who to assign them to.

I've had a youtube account since 2006 and now after all these years I have to sign up to a website which has somehow pulled my right name out of nowhere without me ever telling me what my name is, and my correct date of birth, and it insists that I submit all information it hasn't already stolen in order to continue to use the account I've been using since 2006

That's what the problem is.
