It's the little things

It's the little things that make a difference. A tiny little bug in safari has pushed me over to using Firefox as my main browser on Sedna. On the invitee-editor of the invitotron, there's a list of the invitees in the database. With a dropdown to filter them by groups. If I select certain groups, the image buttons next to the drop down don't render when the page loads. Other groups they do. Rename the <select> tag, it still happens. Remove the <select> tag, it works normally (except, of course, I can't change the filter). So, hell with it. Browser bug, switch to firefox.

Firefox on mac lacks some features that safari has that I really like. Command-down takes you to the end of the page. This is important, as the end key if Function-right, and requires two hands. cmd-down is a single-handed command. Things like that. Also, if several tabs have a common prefix in the <title>, safari will strip it. So, say a tab " foo" and " bar", the tab titles would be "foo" and "bar", which is nice, 'cause you can see the meaningful part of the title, instead of "". Things like that.

Ah well, I'll live.
