Blink sucks. One of the single worst features of HTML I can think of. You have my condolences.

Mozilla is why I switched to Firebird. :)

Sounds like a good excuse to stay with opera 7.

7.20 also fixes the problems with animated gifs. That's why I'll be upgrading. There's some other stuff, too.

:confused:. No matter how I read that, it refuses to make sense.

Actually, Firerbird will eventually be called Mozilla Browser. But it's the trendy browser these days. I use it because it does what Seamonkey (the current thing called Mozilla) can't do. :)

Firebird is Mozilla Firebird. They use the same rendering engine (Gecko). text-decoration:blink works in Firebird as well.

I use Firebird because as a matter of religion, I believe that the browser and the mail/news program should run in separate processes. Not threads, but processes.

Ah, so it wasn’t on-topic. I should have known :).

That belief leaves you with Firebird and (maybe) Konqueror, then? No wonder you went with it.

I don't think I care that much about the blink tag. However, I would cut off my own arm for a browser that correctly implements printing table headers at the top of each page, prevents table cells from splitting over page breaks if so desired, and prints in landscape mode when you tell it to. For Windows, of course. It's a work thing.

Don't want much, do you? ;)

You mean, for the thing to work according to the specs? No, not really :) :)

Specs? Specs? Wash your mouth out with soap, right this instance young man!

Actually, browser makers seem to be taking more notice of the recommendations…for screen and handheld devices. Decent support for print and aural media is still lacking.

One thing that used to drive me nuts is that the embedded MIDI player in Windows would always ignore my mixer settings and crank the MIDI volume up to 11. So one day I just gave up and muted all MIDI output.
