If you turn on the developer menu in Safari and change the user agent to something else, the XP site will allow you to start the upgrade process. However, I did not actually try to update with Safari -- I just loaded Brave and used that instead. I'd rather not take a chance on the upgrade breaking halfway through and bricking my machine.But can we use the Safari browser to update? The website seems to say we have to have chrome or one of several others.
No i get it. My point nobody really complained before updatable detectors. You just use them the way they were. Now nobody is ever satisfied already wanting another updateEverybody having different preferences doesn't explain making a change like that to one of the presets... some people liked it the way it was, too. Or, at least have become accustomed to it.
That reason is often marketing, and I suspect that was the case here. The change to the big numbers display for General, in particular. Marketing said "Hey... we need an example of the Big Numbers and a 2 tone program." That's my 2 cent piece, anyway.I'm sure XP has done enough research and listened to enough user comments to justify whatever changes they've made. I doubt they would have changed one of their preset programs without reason.
I'd assume users have suggested making Large Numbers part of one of the preset programs since this option seems to be popular. Since the General program would be considered the machine's most basic program, it seem logical to make Large Numbers the default in the General program rather than in any other, along with changing it to two-tone, making it an even more 'basic' program.
I could be completely wrong with my reasoning but seems logical to me.
It’s marketing alright. In this technological advanced world especially in this hobby people have to have the latest and greatest and if you don’t give it to them they will go someplace else to get it. Never satisfied even after an update they can’t wait for the next one.That reason is often marketing, and I suspect that was the case here.
