Keeping up with the lizards

It used to be the case that I pored over Mozilla (and later Firefox) release notes. But I stopped sometime in 2004, around the point when I accepted that XUL development was too hard to be doing in my spare time and yes, Firefox was clearly better than IE at just about everything.

This means that I now miss all the cool announcements

After my original post about it, it’d probably be good to point out that Jeff Minard has taken the idea and run with it, introducing

  • h tag support
  • br tag support
  • proper html syntax (a few tags were being closed incorrectly.)
  • Various small fixes

Of course, have a Blogger-hosted blog I can’t make use of any of these oh-so-clever solutions (because of user recognition I think – otherwise I could just provide my own form), but it’s good to keep up with the wizards.
