|Wow, I never thought Mozy could do that...
Okay, so it's not the world's most groundbreaking feature, and it makes sense in context, but nevertheless I like it. If you're browsing in tabbed mode, and come across a link in the text - eg: http://www.mozilla.org/ - you can highlight the actual text, drag it up to the tab-bar, and drop it, and the link opens in a new tab, which is great when I'm browsing the pages of my less HTML-initiated friends. It even works with text dragged from other sources. I knew this worked in older browsers with new windows, and in frames, and logically I should have tried it, but in all honesty I never thought about using drag-and-drop with tabs.

|Let's welcome our new AOL brothers-in-arms...
Not quite so-old news:
Members of AOL who use the latest AOL browser from MacOS-10.1 or greater are actually using Gecko for their rendering engine
(see item 2). Since this browser identifies itself as Gecko/AOL; we should welcome our new brothers in arms. Always be at the ready to help an AOL user write an e-mail to a site that is incorrectly identifying their browser by pointing the site admin to the Netscape Gecko Compatibility Handbook
. Remind such offending sites that as AOL continues to upgrade their subscriber base to Gecko; offending sites could gradually lose customers unless they correctly identify and support Gecko. Also emphasize that pure standards support will in no way break compatibility with new version of IE.
