    You'll probably have to use an alternative browser if you can. Seems like a chrome update or something is blocking downloads

    Yup, I use Chrome. Makes sense, then. I suppose Edge has a purpose now as I refuse to use the in-game repo browser.

    It sucks ass, man.

    Lol yeah I never deleted Edge out of fear that something like this would go down. I would use the in-game repo more often but it seems to have issues downloading anything bigger than the average config mod.

    Whatever Google did to Chrome, they need to undo it soon because this is going to get pretty annoying pretty quickly.

    The in-game repo needs some polishing up. It has trouble downloading anything. Even a fucking config.
    Now, what games do you know that have a in-game modhub/repo? Only Farming Simulator (which has a well functioning modhub, only the servers eat shit from time to time), and BeamNG (needs some work) come to my mind.

    The Chromium-based Edge is a pretty damn good browser. Worth a try.

    You`ve been using Firefox?
    If yes, my man. I`ve been using firefox for 5 years now and I`m still satisfied.

    So here's the thing about Chromium Edge...

    Proprietary Edge was actually programmed really well for what it was, despite it being kind of slow and having almost no plug-in support. It was and still is the only browser I've come across that will video accelerate properly (so use GPU effectively). Chromium isn't even close to as good for pure media consumption as proprietary Edge was. They ruined that when they went Chromium, so now it's just a fancy Google Chrome with all the same problems in programming.

    I remember back in the mid-late 2000's into the 2010's Apple still developed Safari for Windows. To this day it's still my favorite browser on a Windows platform. It came very close to proprietary Edge for proper resource usage.

    Huh, I found the newer one faster than the old one, I don't have a dedicated GPU, so I don't know if iGPUs made any effect with video acceleration

    I fixed my keyboard a while ago. Some rubber things just popped off the membrane, glued them back, and it's working!
    I also cut the same thumb I stapled and cut with a keyholder. Right thumb, I AM SO SORRY.
    And I almost burned my face turning a stove on when I was gonna do my lunch. Recoiled back and almost destroyed the kitchen at it.

    This is our younger cats 2nd christmas. A few weeks ago, we saw her eating the christmas tree bristles. We thought that if we chase her away from the tree while she was chewing it that she would learn not to do it anymore. No mater how many times we chased her away or yelled no, she kept going back to chew it. We ended up buying some anti chew spray to hopefully put an end to this. Our older cat stopped chewing the tree after we sprayed it, but our younger one just keeps on chewing the dang tree! She will sometimes proceed to look directly at me and then attempt to go under the tree to eat it.

    possibly the cutest problem i've ever heard :) Any way as i've learnt with my cat(s) they think that you are their servant or their above you, as the saying goes cats have no masters. Now im not agreeing with animal violence but sometimes with kittens you need to show who's boss otherwise they'll never obey you :/
