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”
