abstraction layer. windows got it firefox don’t

It’s three versions overdue.  Firefox needs an extension referee: something to assure exensions, especially poorly designed extensions, play nicely.

Something that compensates for feature collision.  What do you do when three extensions interact with one particular firefox feature?   Nothing.  You obamahope for the best.  That’s no kind of plan.

Why is no one discussing a firefox extension abstraction layer?  Because it’s scary and would require work.  But the Perceived Performance team is working to take the cheating edge from intertardnet explorer.

Like to use tabs?  alot?  20+?  Enjoy the huge ram and cpu demand of firefox when you do?  TooManyTabs can help.  It would be more helpful with an abstraction layer.  It would be even better if firefox would roll greedy, unfocused tabs into the TooManyTabs netherworld.

iphone voicemail sucks so what are you going to do?  nothing.  you can’t


Jesse Ruderman, firefox whiz, overt fan of the needless www host, waxes on the subject not realizing the HTC phone series is a few clicks away

complains that when he misses a call and gets voicemail as a result, the iPhone forces him to click both Recents and Voicemail to clear badges.

So what are you going to do about it?  Nothing likely you have an iphone.  But if you were a developer and hacker like Jesse?

How could Apple address Cronin’s complaint

apparently nothing.  No one can do anything about iphone voicemail sucking.  You iphone itards will have to live in an obamaesque state of hope (lessness).

So go have an obama beer and enjoy the shiny suffering.

HTC phones on the otherhand put USERS in charge.
