Is this the most disgusting step down in tech history? A personal donation of $1000 ending a career in a company that he founded?

To build so much and have it all fall so little is depressing.

javascript is fast, and its proven far and away safer than java and all the shit adobe has come up with.

The only language as far as I can tell you can download and run from anywhere on the net and not worry about infecting your machine.

seriously, not trying to say its perfect, but you have to be underageb& to get that mad about it.

Millions spent on js engines in optimization attempts, and it still is slow. Our devices can run operating systems and 3d graphics and physics simulations, yet they choke on your typical webapp. There are flaws in the language that simply can't be fixed, only worked around with hacks.

As for the security thing you're not talking about the language itself, which was designed in 10 days to meet a deadline and as a result is one of the shittiest languages ever created. The fact you can run it mostly safely does not come from the language, but from the way browsers treat it: interpreted and running in a sandbox. No reason you couldn't do that with Java as a language.

Js is a deeply flawed language which only got popular because it had no competitors on the web, and people built all their stuff on it, sometimes making it a half decent tool.

The reaction to it was disgusting. Not even so much from Mozilla itself, but from attention-seeking retards blocking Firefox users from accessing their sites. These people have zero tolerance for dissenting opinions and throw a fit when confronted with one.

It shows the amount of power that the LGBT community has on present society. They can ruin you if you even have so much as an opinion that doesn't align with theirs. They spout tolerance rhetoric, but are the most intolerant group out there. The truth is that they aren't, in fact, looking for tolerance. They want advocates.

He donated to a proposition that stop gay marriage. People found out, and rallied the LGBT SJW troops within Mozilla and pressured him out of his position.

Coincidentally it's around the same time Mozilla started going down the drain.

Is there any way to derive a function from a table of values? I have to find a way to simplify an iterative algorithm to something with a faster running time, and seeing as how the function is a simple mapping of one input to one output, I assume it can be done in O(1) time

Brandon Campbell
Brandon Campbell

Are you really surprised this happened? Pretty much the only people with a huge hard-on for Firefox are Linux users and they are literally SJW's.

That $1000 may just have been the best $1000 he ever spent if it got him out of that place sooner rather than later.

JS has nothing to do with the reason "webapps" are slow. It benchmarks within the same order of magnitude as Java or C++.

Are you retarded or something? The point being made was that he had no choice but to resign due to sites blocking Firefox until he did. That more than anything was what forced him out, not the reaction inside Mozilla.

Brendan is a talented engineer, there are a lot of things he could do, but he has chosen to make a browser that hijacks ads. His failure is his own making. I dont feel sorry for him, Ive talked to him personally, he is a jerk, so its all on him.

Its not quite that simple, I know some of the inside story. But in the end, he didnt take a stand for his rights or his beliefs and left. He is also blackballed from working at some other major companies. But there is endless opportunity in the tech industry, he has leadership talent, so he doesnt need to work for anyone.

Jack Smith
Jack Smith

Daily reminder that a lot of people within Mozilla publically spoke out in support of him, and that the board wanted him to stay on in a different role. It was the shitstorm created by degenerates outside of the organisation that forced him to resign.

As CEO, Eich should have fired the noise such as Moyer and Varelidi and put his foot down. Dealing with homo sites that were banning Firefox, I would have shipped a version of Firefox with a random agent spoofer.

firefox marketshare dwindling under complete mismanagement
google botnet vacuuming up more and more data
build from the ground up a browser based on chromium's code base but with all the botnet and tracking removed
give people the option to natively block ads/tracking or allow acceptable, non-tracked, non-intrusive ads if so desired
these ads can be used to generate bitcoin that can go back into sites that support the micro-transaction that brave will provide
once sites start accepting brave as saviour, goodbye other browsers

it's the future. i am from the future so I know.

Makes perfect sense since it is what happens in the browser.

It must be hard seeing "my idea" being implemented so expertly by a professional who is going to succeed where you have failed. No wonder you are biased :)

there are multithreaded implementations, there are libraries to do threading, its just not that important to push it into the language spec, because microservices.

C / C++ didnt have threading until c11 / c++11 people got along just fine without it.

you can call OS routines directly though, to do threading.
that said, the things javascript is meant for don't really require multithreading, similiar to python

right, but the same can be said about node, and l believe nashorn aswell. its just a different runtime.
The argument could be made that spinning up another runtime for JS (node) in order to run another thread has a lot more overhead than fork() does, and that is valid. It's the same from the programmers' perspective though.

that said, the things javascript is meant for don't really require multithreading, similiar to python

exactly scripting langauges make for great glue code. and its usually really simple to break up the glue bits into many small pieces that dont require a monolithic application anyway.

Thats a very difficult question. You could plot a linear function given any series of inputs and outputs which is what a "linear regression" is. But to find the function itself, I would only know how to do that if the function was differentiable. Here is something good to read: math.smith.edu/~rhaas/m114-00/chp4taylor.pdf

Just like freedom of religion means the government can't arrest you for being Jewish but if schools want to expel you, companies want to fire you, and people boycott your business; they are complete free to do so. Oh wait.

Kevin Wilson

I would only know how to do that if

It is impossible to do, so you definitely don't know how to do it under any circumstances. There is no one to one mapping between a set of finitely many points and a function.

None of the things you just listed (besides the government intervention) are a consequence of freedom.

What a shitty thread bitching about something that happened years ago. The /pol/ retards who constantly whine about SJWs are consistently more obnoxious than any SJW.
