I'm currently using Vivaldi. Basically the only thing that differs it from other browsers I used is the navigation bar. The navigation bar has your bookmarks, vivaldi mail (coming soon), contacts, downloads and notes. The browser is also more customizable than what I'm used to. I doesn't have a proper plugin system yet so you will have to add plugins via the chrome store for now.
This article is very interesting because it gives insight in a system that does not even exist in my country. Here we usually don't tip since we normally have decent wages. The other thing that seems even more strange is the fact that some people don't have a wage at all but depends completely on tips. The only people i have ever seen getting tipped are teenagers trying to get extra money by selling newspapers at the weekends but never otherwise.
This is an interesting topic and in the article they cover a lot of important points like the ability to easily divide and count on fingers. This all seems great but i still think it's easier to count using one finger for one number and it's also easier if you are trying to show someone at a distance. You can easily see somebody holding four fingers in the air but it's difficult to see which finger and which part they are pointing at. The article also points out that we already use dozens for plenty of things but i can't say that i see a reason why not to use both systems at once. Another counting system i find interesting is finger binary although it is fairly impractical.
This was a very interesting read. I wish that my country could be the same but instead we build barriers of fake formality between us. We always greet eachother the same way and always have the same response but both people know that it is not genuine, but rather something that we must do to seem polite.
I would suggest trying to find an english speaking person that you could practice speaking to over a VoIP client. Another method which i think works well is to play video games because you may learn new words and you also hear many different dialects.
