NDP ties CPC (non-communist) for first place in popular support. Notably, this isn't because people like the NDP more, it's because people like the non-communist party less. But it's still good news in the general sense that the CPC(non-communist) are the third-worst party in general and the worst major party.
(Translating for Americans: Imagine that Dennis Kucinich's way-further-left brother just tied Obama in the polls, and that Republicans don't exist. That's kind of what Canada looks like right now.)
Probably related in some way that I just haven't figured out yet:
Chrome passes IE as most popular web browser.
Die IE die.
Sure, just for one off-peak day, but STILLMicrosoft is wildly arguing this, of course.
It needs to, since IE's only virtue (if you can call it that) is ubiquity. Chrome, Firefox, Opera and even Safari have actual features people like, that those browsers can point to and say "use us because of this." IE's best pitch is "We're not as far behind as we used to be, and hey
plurality market share!"
I love that news article and it totally made my day today. Unfortunately we're three years from an election and that's a long enough time for the Conservative lie machine to bury all of this, so who knows if we'll ever be free of them.
I'm hoping for criminal-charge-induced byelections, personally.
And also I want a pony.
Not going to come soon enough to stop big layoffs in my crown corporation, unfortunately.
