Things that annoy me – #439

Websites that resize my web browser window, specifically Gears of War. They really bug the shit out of me. Not only does this site resize the window but if I have the nerve to resize it back, it then promptly resizes it down again. So a big thanks to the fuckwit who implemented that.

However, as always, there are ways and means to avoid should fuckwittery. Using the Web Developer Toolbar in Firefox you can simply select Disable / Disable JavaScript.

WebDevJavaScriptOff

Tada! No resizing…

…erm, unfortunately disabling JavaScript permanently does break things like Gmail… oops. A greasemonkey script would probably be the best thing to do in this case.

Yeah, I hate sites that do that too.
I’m even annoyed by sites that have links that automatically open in a new window/tab, I understand the advantage for noobs, but for me, I’d like to be the one to decide if I want a link I click on to open in a new tab, a new window, or just load over the current page…
Uh, sorry for the off topic. =D

Bal, that annoys the crap out of me too… and erm I tend to do that a lot on my site :D I’ll stop doing it now.

Vondur, I’ve been caught out loads of times by low audio. You have like a gazillion tabs open and then this music starts playing and you can’t work out where it’s coming from.
