Dark Reader has four different modes of operation, and you can choose them based on a website: Filter, Filter+, Static, Dynamic.

I use Dynamic by default but opt to one of the other three for certain websites.

The alert page is untouched. Although, a pattern has emerged. It seems notifications of "Likes" are being marked as read automatically, thus the difference. @W1zzard Is this in line with the forum software update or is it a glitch being caused by a config of the previous version of the software?

Internally hosted images open in the same tab when you're reading something (have to go back to the thread), did this happen before? New tab would be nicer IMO.
Image enhances on the same page if you click on it on the homepage, but not in forums.

??? What's the issue here?

Why not just download from Nvidia's own website? It's guaranteed to be the latest.

Latest driver is hosted on TPU’s download servers. One of the servers might be experiencing a issue.

Not a server issue, seems to be networking/routing. I've opened a ticket with the host

Because trying to find the non-DCH driver on NVidia.com or Geforce.com is a PITA.

How so? The non-DCH drivers are easily accessible within the "Beta and Older Drivers". Just a few more simple clicks along with choosing the "Standard" driver type and a user is good-to-go.
Why go through that rigmorole when they are front & center here on TPU? The people at NVidia who decided that the DCH versions should be a priority are nitwits.

I don't think it's as "rigmarole" as you think it is. They are just about as easy to find if a tiny bit of effort is put into it even if it takes a few more clicks than getting to the one on TPU.
The people at NVidia who decided that the DCH versions should be a priority are nitwits.
LOL! Totally agree with you there. Don't really understand either why there isn't a driver type selection on their driver front page.

You should be using NVCleanstall anyway, it will notify, download and install, without sharing any info with NVIDIA, when you want, install what you want

There are reasons why I download the installers. Offline installs are generally how I roll. I make exceptions only very rarely. Blue moon kind of rare.

Can anyone can answer this for me? I'm curious what it is.

I just noticed this, so I'm not sure if it's here from the recent updates or if it's been around a while and I just noticed it because I'm slow.

On the URL bar (using Chrome): at the far right there is a + symbol with a circle around it and when I hold my mouse cursor over it, it says "Install TechPowerUp Forums" - what is this (pic below)?

It's some new feature of XenForo called PWA.


No idea yet how useful this can be, but I just enabled so all of us can test and learn
