comment How can I prevent Gmail from formatting our order numbers as IP addresses
Are you sure it’s thinking they phone numbers and not IP addresses? Are you sure about the content and formatting of the resulting HTML that Gmail auto-adds?

comment Disable YouTube HTML5 player in Chrome
Even worse, HTML5 elements are not affected by Chrome’s click-to-play function, so there is no way to prevent Youtube videos from automatically loading, buffering, and playing. There are some extensions that can help with this, but they don’t work with Youtube’s Feather mode. ಠ╭╮ಠ

comment Google removed the Stop Download command from the context-menu of YouTube videos
Very nice! I tried them all and they all worked. I don’t like having the bookmark bar always-on since that’s of little use, so I’ll use an extension. Fortunately the extension doesn’t run in a separate process which is good, but the button it makes flickers, so I’ll use the user-script instead (I’ve previously tried using the JavaScript) command stopVideo(), but it didn’t work ఠ_ಠ).

comment Google removed the Stop Download command from the context-menu of YouTube videos
Actually, that is something I do with other video sites that don’t have a stop-buffering command. The problem is that not only does it still end up downloading a little, it’s not always easy to click at the end anyway. If the video is long, even clicking as close to the end as you can, you could still end up a couple of minutes from the end, which is a waste of bandwidth if you have decided not to keep watching. You can switch to full-screen and click the now-longer time bar, but even then, doing any/all of this takes an extra few seconds which YouTube spends continually downloading.

And doesn’t do anything anyway. I just tested it and it still keeps buffering when paused and of course without the context-menu (or any other way) to stop it.

Yes, I prefer to download anything I expect to keep (that way I can watch it in VLC and increase the speed). But it doesn’t really help with generic videos. I have a feeling that we’ll end up having to install yet another extension or script to fix yet another problem with a Google product. ¬_¬
