I got Navigator 9's official EOL notice last week. But FF3 still isn't quite ready for me. Navigator 9 Migrator tool / extension is absolutely useless.
UPDATE: I'm now on FF3 full time and loving it. I'm still missing a couple of features though:
I still need some extensions to migrate fully:
* Undo Closed Tabs
and really really want (almost need):
* Mac Favicon XL (theme)
* Google PageRank Status, or SearchStatus (enables Google web history)
It's All Text!
And would like
* Html Validator
I spend a lot of time on the read-write web. I work on a lot of large complicated documents on the web. I often copy text from forms in my web browser to a text editor that is easy to use. I am sick of using basic text editors that web browsers have. This however is a less than ideal workflow.
"On February 4th, IANA will add AAAA records for the IPv6 addresses of the four root servers." http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/01/03/1954245
Does that mean IPv6 is finally happening? I guess it's time to make sure your web host supports IPv6, or switch to one that does.
This great article on web readability and usability based on results of eye-tracking analysis was fairly unsurprising for me, except for this snippet;
There are many varying ideas of what "Web 2.0" 'is'. I like the notion that "Web 1.0" is the read-only media-enhanced hyper-linked internet -- where hyperlinks are it's best feature and almost it's foundation -- while "Web 2.0" encompasses the technology that enables media-rich read-write interfaces, on top of everything "Web 1.0" is. While this "Web 2.0" technology is not new, it has been enhanced enabled and made ready for-the-masses. Broadband is a significant part in this, particularly for media-rich websites.
