I use Firefox as it can be started from the command line with all plugins disabled .. then I could uninstall the offending one, and restart Firefox.

Though it's pretty easy to reset Chrome/Chromium to default, you may loose the plugins you already had

Non of this is really anything to worry about .. so take your pick ;)

Better than me. I still play my old BBC  games.

SGS 2 and Tapatalk are awesome.

If you need help ask a professional, then act upon their advice.
Anything less and you're just wasting peoples time.

Cool...

Play with them for half hour, have your nostalgia moment, then put em back into storage .. playing with that stuff for more than half hour results in the permanent loss of rose coloured tinting to ones spectacles ;)

Tru dat Mark.
But there are some stand out titles like jack attack and manic miner.
But then there are some that were remembered with the afore mentioned tinted ocular augmentation devices like Sabre wolf and kissin cousins.
