comment .exe files getting downloaded when asked to install `ubuntu-restricted-extras`
There is a debian package for this. It does exactly the same thing. The problem is legal, not technical.

comment Command to quit[cleanly] GUI applications from a tty?
@Vish: As far as I know, System Monitor sends a SIGTERM when you use it to end a process. And a SIGKILL if the app hasn't exited after some time / if the user tries it again (and Windows does something nearly identical). I could be mistaken though, as I rarely use the System Monitor.

@Vish: SIGTERM is the default signal for most task-killing programs. There is no reason why kill -TERM $PID would have better results than using top or killall with the default parameters.

comment Why does Google search always count more results in Firefox or Chrome than in Chromium?
Fixed a mistake about whether Web History was applied to users without a Google account or not.

comment Why does Google search always count more results in Firefox or Chrome than in Chromium?
It is not a navigator/network/etc problem: I get 1'500'000 results on Chrome (in normal), and 1'750'000 on IE and Chrome Incognito mode (on Windows XP) - Chrome is on the same machine in both cases. I would suggest that you redo your tests in Chromium incognito. And, once again, [WebApps][webapps.stackexchange.com] would be a better place for this question.

comment Is there a IRC Client which can use or emulate mIRC scripts
Do not forget that Pidgin is a generalistic application, made to function with a wide variety of IM protocols - as such, IRC scripting is not the focus of Pidgin.
