Panic Button

All the US sites I use have a 'panic button' feature where you just hit the icon and it takes you to a web address of your choice. Excellent for cyber-bludging, hiding DBW from the Missus, etc.

It's an option on the VB platform, I guess there's no reason why we can't have it as an added feature.

Are you afraid your wife will read your posts and realize she married a sociopath?

No.
a) Been single for 3+ years...
b) It's more the embarrassment of getting busted talking to you and Spac.

I typically/constantly have 3 separate browsers loaded & active.
Opera 12.17 is my main... Yet I use Vivaldi and FireFox for html5.

In/that I need to copy/paste YouTube links over to them to play those.
Opera 12.17 will still play but it stalls & stuffs around so I go elsewhere.

If I wish to save a video I'll use FireFox; as my cache program works with that.
If I don't wish to save it; I'll use Vivaldi as that has better/easier spam filtering.

Nuts: Simply click from one browser to the other: Very few will realise an icon is active.
Opera 12.17 & Vivaldi both let you play incognito: Yet if your squeeze is suss good luck.

This reminds me of the "boss key" in old computer games. Usually an F key, like F10, that would either drop you back to dos, or display something that looked like work.

If you use Windows computers, you can just hit the Windows key and D to drop back to the desktop. It's good enough to fool a superior that walks by, but you have to remember that the IT guys always know what you're up to

Geez, I'd debate that DV. Guess where the form to get a new computer password is located on NSW corporate systems...on the computer you can't get into.

Every profession has a healthy serving of dipshits mate...
