1 "Intel says an average of 18% improvement"
That's an improvement over Skylake, not Coffee Lake.  Based on the tests Tom's Hardware did (https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-10nm-ice-lake-test-benchmarks,6257.html) it looks like a lot of the increase due to IPC is lost due to lower clocks (which is what people have been predicting for a while.)  Does still look--mostly--like a boost over Coffee Lake, though.  Probably not worth upgrading if you've already got one, but probably is if you have something older, I'd guess.

2 Chrome:  the commenters, just like they did last time Google did this, hate it, for the same reasons they did before, because those were and are good ones.
I'd say "incapable of learning anything" isn't accurate; it's "they just don't care".  This was actually the last straw that made me switch to FF.  I just wish FF wasn't such a mess on Android--the default font choices are too small for my no-longer-20-year-old eyes--because it supports extensions, which Chrome doesn't.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
