"Firefox induced cat warts" can easily be prevented. First, the cat
must be spayed or neutered in a town with a name starting with "M" (or
"F" if you use marijuana). Also, avoid saying 6-letter words beginning
with "C" and ending with "T", or any words derived from one that day.
Ya know, I really like Firefox, certainly over Internet
Exploiter/Exploder. Except for one thing: it's slower than dogshit on a
lot of things. Much slower than it should be.
I know why this is: because of the nature of distributed, open-source
software development, where lots of volunteer programmers each write a
little module here and a little module there, there's little or no
overall optimization like you'd have if it were a regular commercial
product. That's because you have module A which calls module B which
calls module C ... which calls module Z, and this happens many many
times per second. In a commercial product, a lot of these chains of
calls would be linearized so they'd execute faster.
So it's a tradeoff. I'd really love to someday see *fast* versions of
both Firefox and Thunderbird, but I'm not holding my breath.
You were wrong, and I'm man enough to admit it.
Even *much* less than 64K. Especially if one sacrificed T-states for
compactness. The most meaningful assembly program I ever wrote was one in
the late 70s to load on demand and dynamically link subroutines to Basic
programs on 8 bit computers. It also set up a system of virtual memory. It
was only about 10KB and almost half of that was online "help".
How about. ..

The actually flew some of them by hand!

I've had FF one day. Youtube, not supporting IE6 next week (13th)
would soon give me warts.
In an hour I went through the jump-roping and now have another free
browser. Faster for me...
No warts on my cats (Darby and Wally) or my African dog.
