Ran into ll_prof.py today. Looks like V8 dumps generated code some place when run under —ll-prof. This script can then parse the perf.data file and produce disasm.
I spent a few evenings hacking Chromium (open source version of the Chrome browser). The idea is that users can have personalized and anonymous services from a single browser instance.
Today, a Chrome user has to have two windows open: one in incognito mode for using services where identity is not disclosed and a second one where the user is logged in. It’s hard to manage and easy to get things mixed up. I suspect that the number of search queries from an incognito browser instance are minuscule.
On the other hand, the “Manage search engines” dialogue is a great place to provide a search engine option for users who don’t like or don’t want personalized search. Open Search for example could define an <anonymous/> tag or equivalent. Browser implementations could then build the UI to give user the option of using a given search engine anonymously (i.e. without sending cookies).
I uploaded proof of concept patches to github earlier today. If the search provider also is an email service provider (not very uncommon), you can now use one browser instance and two tabs — one personalized (email) and the other anonymous (search), so your search queries are not associated with your email profile.
In her remarks in Westport, however, Ms. Raskin played down the effects of low rates on investors. She said that less than 7 percent of household assets were held directly in certificates of deposit, savings bonds and the like. “Instead, the bulk of household wealth is held in stocks, retirement accounts, business equity and real estate,” she said. “For these other types of assets, rates of return depend primarily on the strength of the economy and how fast the economy is growing. Thus, these returns should be supported, over time, by the accommodative monetary policy that we have in place.”
Watch where the majority of the voters are investing.

Out of the 95k commits, a mere 356 are from people outside of the google.com and chromium.org domains. Not sure how many of the chromium.org commits are from google employees.
PS: AUTHORS lists about 160 non-google employees, mostly sporting gmail.com email addresses.
I wish large open source projects that consume more open source code than they add, really stopped checking in everything they need into their own repo. Providing a chromiumos-overlay and a binhost would be a lot nicer to potential contributors. Most contributors I’m guessing have no interest in recompiling a gazillion third party dependencies.
By periodically running a script such as this:
$ sudo apt-get install sqlite3
$ cat ~/bin/clean-cookies.sh
sqlite3 $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/cookies.sqlite « EOF
delete from moz_cookies where not (host like ‘%youtube%’ or host like ‘%google.com%’ or host like ‘%facebook%’);
Tested on Ubuntu 11.10 + Firefox9.
10/9: Call to not mail me the shiny new BofA credit card. Rep closes my old account without permission
10/15: Payment due. Scheduled payment cancelled. My access to e-payment history removed.
10/18: New statement with a $22 late fee + $35 in interest
11/5: Angry phone call when I find out about the late fee.
11/9: I pay the full amount on the 10/18 statement that was due 11/15.
11/18: New statement with $26 in interest.
This is the worst bank I’ve ever dealt with. Slimy, deceptive and cold.
Switched my default browser back to Firefox from Chrome after a few years. With Firefox 7, I don’t feel there is a significant performance delta between the two browsers. Competition was clearly good for consumers in this case.
Nice day for a bike ride
