Have you ever been outraged at some ignorant moron for posting something too stupid to be real, but after typing up a word salad of purified hate that's meant to leave them a pathetic husk of a person, you realize nothing will be accomplished and end up deleting the whole thing? I hate to break it to you, but that's probably the right move (most of the time). The fine minds behind YouTube think so too, and they're testing a new prompts that will casually remind users to reconsider hostile comments before it's too late.
Google Photos is already a solid product and has only recently received a massive facelift that's still not rolling out widely. But there are always little things that can be improved upon, and recently, two have surfaced: The Photos app now shows you toasts that let you quickly copy texts from images while the web interface allows you to see where you've uploaded a given photo from.

When certain things finally happen, they make us want to search for that hidden ladder that takes people up to the rooftop and scream "Hallelujah," religious or no. This is one of those things.

Better yet, this change doesn't require Android L or anything fancy. Here's a video of the magic taking place on an HTC One M8.
Previously, after typing in an email address and password for the first time, Google would kick people with two-factor authentication enabled out to a web prompt where they could type in the code that they had received from either an app or a text message.
