The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, htmlhelp.com and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

somebody else has answered a similar but less negative rant of myself above with the explanation that this is just one of the many features that have been contributed by non-netscape people. this is nice, this is fine, but i still think that mozilla is a product that has too many cool features and not enough boring, down-to-the-basics, everyday-work supporting features. that means that mozilla will be loved and used by a minority and the majority of boring business users will just stick with browser that do what they need even if they would love to have an alternative. maybe that sounds a bit harsh, but I do see quite some small, boring but important things not get touched for months or even years now while one cool feature after the next is landing. i do believe that the most important species of users is corporate users that do not have a background in hacking or informatics, but routinela and extensively use programs like web browsers and messengers in their day to day work.
