:) I understand your desire to be polite, Brad, but "politeness" =/=
"formality", which can make people uncomfortable. Since politeness is
supposed to be a social lubricant, I offer to you the thought that undue
formality may well be _impolite,_ given the above.

Hmm. I just tried installing it - it looked quite appealing - and got an
endless stream of "A Web site is requesting permission to install"
boxes, popping up at the rate of about one every 20 seconds, as well as
a progress bar that just sat there. Perhaps Mozilla needs to straighten
out their Web installation procedure, or Chris needs to offer the thing
as a tarball or something; I've had no luck with it.
