Dang it.  
I didn't want to like Firefox.  I just tried it 'cause self told me it might help me do something I've been trying to figure out.  The fact is that I've been using IE since Netscape got ugly on me, and have been quite satisfied with it.

As it turns out, Firefox works faster and more efficiently than IE, and Tab Browsing is so intuitive it's insane.  Plus it does what I wanted - I can right click on a folder in my bookmarks and say "open in tabs" -- and every link in that directory opens in its own tab, all at once.

One downside -- I haven't yet figured out how to make shortcuts to files.  In IE, I had bookmarks in my DVDs folder for my Upcoming DVD list, and now I'll have to find it any time I want to use it.  There are workarounds, of course, but I'd rather just have it work.  Ah, well -- I still think I've changed my default browser for the better....

Just added IMDB. Why has no one done this for other browsers?

I guess 'cause the other browsers aren't as good.

That box in the upper corner is how Jonny is able to look stuff up on Google. Which takes some of the mystique out of how he figured that one out himself, but it's still pretty impressive for a six-year-old, I think.

Well, I can't figure it out. There's no "Go" button. After you type in what you want, how do you get the computer to go there?
