Can we vote for more than one option? ;)

(That answer would be NO.)

Thanks Mat!

There's currently a 50-50 split (of the 2 votes total) between the 2 options I like the most.

I'm glad I already have a mini and will not be writing a 8-page essay on this no matter what option wins.

Maybe we should all write 8 page essays and submit them
so DieHard would have something to do. ;) (Or Mat?)

"No good deed goes unpunished" you know?

But seriously, quite nice of both of them.

How about giving it to the person coding a 9.3.4 update for Classilla?

Uh? No one?

Ok ... ;-)
