about:robots in Mozilla Firefox 3

Take me to your lizard!

I dunno how many of you know about this ‘feature’ in Mozilla Firefox 3. I planned to write it when it was launched and then totally forgot about it. It’s this: open Firefox 3, and enter about:robots in the address bar. Reminds you of anything – About Your Plastic Pals Who Are Fun To Be With? Isaac Asimov, Douglas Adams (“Please do not press this button again” – LOL!)…

    Nice find.

    But wait: Aren’t you the same person who loved to talk about loving open source? :S Your screenshots are scaring me.

    @Prateek: Glad to find somebody else who knows that too! :D

    @Abhishek: You’re right. 60 GB of data and I’ve no way to migrate it. And I don’t want to do the resize, copy, rinse, repeat cycle. I can’t wait to get my paws on an external hard disk to end this misery once and for all.

    Chirag: Pretty cool. Didn’t get to see Econorm, but I was told that our school performed horribly in all the events.

    Ankur: LoL! I have a feeling I’ve seen this somewhere before this though. I mean … it’s not a new feature is it?

    @Chirag: Strange as it may seem, I don’t believe a lot of people from the DPS VK fraternity read my blog. I *also* find it amusing that although so many people from other schools use and find the quiz archives here useful, the DPS VK QC / Code Warriors don’t. There have been incidents where other schools have performed well while DPS VK hasn’t – simply because the others bothered to read my blog. There are certain people in (current) DPS VK QC who are…quite arrogant. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.

    @Espera: It’s new to Firefox 3, if that’s what you’re asking.

    @ankur : Even though Code Warriors is a big happy family, its the same thing here as well : “Ghar ki murgi dal barabar”

    @ Ankur – Hmm thats interesting. I know who those people are ;-)

    • scrive:I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Hi Neville. Thanks for the big update. Looks great! I need to get moving with my tags in SUL. The text color feature and the Set Title as Selected alone are enough to make me happy. Again, thank you for the hard work.Jim
