Did I ever mention how much firefox sucks? (And for the record, all
other browsers suck as much, or are useless).

Maybe somebody will some day write a web browser that just displays
web pages and doesn't try to be a whole operating system. It would
still suck, because the web sucks intrinsically, but at least it would
not fuck everything outside the browser up.
