    See my subject-line/title above, & check this out:

    http://groups.google.com/group/mozi...6b52581628e/a303e61ccb5c8149#a303e61ccb5c8149

    :)

    * I've worked w/ the Mozilla crew in the past (found a bug in how their browsers were parsing a homemade board @ NTCompatible.com (good job on Phillipp's part their owner, even though he & I are now "estranged" lol)).

    They are SUPER cool to work with, & fix things "lickety split/no shit" fast too... next day in the case I cite!

    APK

    P.S.=> And, they come talk to YOU, directly, via email OR @ the site you point to them no less... give them enough SOLID detail? They rock...

    Even though I am MORE of an "Opera-man", Mozilla/FireFox DO rock... perhaps, they will show MS a "trick or two" & improve IE7 too...

    Anyhow, read the URL! apk

    I just think that Redmond wants to copy all the good stuff in FF and put it in IE7 or something. "Redmond has a cat, too. A copycat."

    I'm not using FF myself (I use Opera), but I know i's rather popular, so I wouldn't put it past Microsoft. After all, Vista is an OSX clone.

    On that note, additionally? Some folks here wanted to nominate me for a mod/admin here, & I DO NOT WANT IT, period.

    (Been there, done it, no thanks... I tend to be pretty "volatile" if done wrong, & I am way too, well, I guess... not GOOD with authority figures, even IF I AM ONE!)

    LOL, no other way to put it... "know thyself"

    :)

    (A man's gotta know his limitations)

    For me, & based on experience this way? I don't want it...

    Been there, done it!

    Back as far as 1996 on IRC for years (on a forum that K. Mardem Bey endorsed (1996-2000)) when I was there on DALNET as "The official Windows Help Channel" no less...

    AND, yes, did it on a few forums over time by now (14 years online almost continuous, & for longer/earlier in the 1980's-1994 via academic or business surroudings), did not like the politics, ESPECIALLY 1 way ones, no thanks!

    APK

    P.S.=>
    They'll get ahold of it, & some of its tricks FOR IE hopefully!

    If NOT?

    Heck, license or buy it (everyone has a price/threshold of acceptance)...

    (& I don't care, personally... as long as I get a BETTER more powerful & secure OS out of it).

    The ends, justify the means.

    Good choice! As I said earlier? I am also an "Opera Man"... why? Fastest & most std.'s compliant browser there is, FREE too, and is just as extensible as any browser there is... but, I disagree with extending browsers... this IS their "hole/weakness" when outward facing to the public internet... apk

    Well I was saying that based on your talents for finding interesting news (I'm cheap I find most of mine through slashdot), and your tendancy of being "overly verbose", you'd probably make a very good newsposter.

    Ah, you do a FINE job yourself... I am too busy to be blunt about it.
