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."

>(One linkbar aside: I don't think many developers will want to bloat their code to add link info that is already covered on the page. I know I won't.)

And I definitely know I will.

Link Tags are a well thougt feature of HTML 2 that every browser should have implemented long ago. Now at least one has and everyone is just complaining even without any proof, that this has slowed down any development on other things. Ever thought that this might have introduced new developers to the Mozilla project? But okay, Mozilla is just a big company and everyone pays a huge amount for the project so everyone has a right to complain. Oh....am I wrong? Is Mozilla just an OPEN SOURCE project where EVERYONE can rather HELP than complain and the rest should just enjoy a FREE product. And the least things everyone complaining could do are filing their complaints as bugs in Bugzilla, spend testcases and giving developers any information possible.

Complaining about features helps nothing! Helping fix bugs does! Just an easy rule to follow ;)
