New toy

Oh, and the inspiration for the previous post: I just got a new phone, while only has Chrome by default. It appears that the long-deprecated Android Browser has ceased to be distributed somewhere along the line. So Querki is about to start driving me crazy unless I fix this mobile-cookie problem.

The new phone is a Nexus 6, the biggest Hunk o' Glass that currently gets called a "phone". (Roughly the same size as the iPhone 6+, I believe.) It's kind of ridiculous, but beautiful, and I'm happy to see that, while the screen is enormous, it's actually a tad thinner than my old Galaxy Nexus (effectively the Nexus 3), and not noticeably heavier. I bought it mostly to get Android 5 (Lollipop), which has lots of splufty new features. More opinions forthcoming as I use it...
