> One thing that you don't see mentioned much but absolutely makes Mozilla the best browser experience for me is that you can highlight regular test in a webpage and drag-and-drop it into the url bar or directly onto browser windows. For instance: find a page with an unlinked url in its text content. Highlight the url, then drag it out and back onto the browser window. It'll take you straight there! You can do the same thing with links, and you can drop onto other windows as well. No copy-and-paste steps necessary. I love this and as far as I know no other browser allows it. <

IE5 for Mac allows it. I hadn't tried it with Mozilla since I thought it was an IEism. In fact I still haven't since I try to only run one browser at a time. In Moz, do you have to hit enter after dragging an unlinked URL to the Address bar? That's what you have to do in IE and I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or not yet... And this is after 6+ months of IE/Mac being my primary browser... ;)

As soon as some last layout bugs are fixed, I can use Moz day-to-day... I can't wait for that day, myself. Anyone know the Bug # that I should be watching for the problem with the drop-down on <> ? I also can't login with Mozilla to this site, but they are "working to fix it", as the bank has been for the past 6+ months. I reported it in Feb since it wasn't working in either IE5 or Moz. They claim it's a "Mac issue". I claim it's poorly written code. OK. I stop ranting. If anyone has suggestions that I can pass on to the bank, I'd appreciate it. Or if anyone has more pull than I do as a lowly customer waiting for the day I can drop NS 4.x in the Trash, please let them know what's wrong...
