Standards Ignored as Developers Target IE

It mentions Netscape/Mozilla standards evangelism and has some good quotes from Mitchell Baker, including the conclusion: 'What we're seeing with Web sites that are viewable only with IE is the privatization of the Web.'"

#2 Diggler - what a great little add-on

I never realised how often I grabbed the keyboard to shorten URLs as I surfed around the web until I installed Diggler.

Just two little quibbles, firstly please, please make it work with the Modern skin.

Secondly how about making it possible to chop the CGI variables bits of URLs off too, eg change http : //www / app.cgi?chop=this&off=too down to http : //www / app.cgi

Would make a nice little addon even better. Thanks for the hard work.
