Mozilla & Gecko clones I've seen superlative after superlative concerning the release of Firefox 3.0, and in all honesty, it is making my stomach ache. Yes, Firefox 3.0 is a great release. It has a slicker interface (the UI on Vista looks quite pretty) and the use of native widgets in Linux is a very, very welcome addition. On top of that, it actually delivers what I was craving for the most from my favourite Windows web browser: much improved performance. But does Firefox 3.0 change the web, or alter the way we use the intertubes?

kaiwai, with such deliberate use of rude and insulting language you are inexorably dumbing yourself down to the size of the apparent intellectual pygmies you are so readily keen to berate, if you'll give the following any credit, that is:

‘There is a prior cultural achievement of language; language is not a detachable instrument of thought and communication.’

In short, language is thought. Don't do yourself the disservice of using language that is not elevating, either of yourself or your audience.
