    When someone asks for suggestions for improving the performance of his Buick, telling him to buy a Ford really isn't helpful. I don't doubt for a minute that you're happy with Opera, but millions and millions more are using Firefox, and they need information like that supplied by HTG when new FF issues arise. Just as we try to gently discourage those whose answer to every Windows issue is "switch to Linux," we may need to post reminders from time to time that alternative programs or OSs are not what people are seeking unless they explicitly ask for them.

    End of sermon. Amen.
