This makes me unhappy. My new-ish laptop battery is no longer recognised by the laptop, so it can’t be charged.

I will continue to abbreviate Domain Name System Security Extensions (commonly referred to as DNSSEC) to "DNSSEX" and I will not be convinced to change.

Why the frank is Google pushing *this* into their browser?

I want to say this will be the irritation of the day, but it's only 10 AM, so there's everything still to play for.
