i read with amusement some stats (link posted in another thread) about the browser type and operating systems that folks are hitting fchat with. for those of you still using IE5, uh, c'mon now, the upgrade is free even better, i thought i'd take it upon myself to put some good words (REALLY good words) in for the latest version of mozilla: http://www.mozilla.org/ and if you're into tabbed browsing (and lord knows WHO ISN'T!?!?!?!) you MUST (MUST!) download this extension: http://white.sakura.ne.jp/~piro/xul/_tabextensions.html.en the Tabbrowser Extensions are nothing short of magical. they're work to set up, but now that i've got it done, i can sift through megabytes of web sites in nearly zero time. it's amazing. for the geeks in the crowd (ESPECIALLY the tab-browsing geeks) you definitely owe it to yourself to check this stuff out. doody.
