A pedant that hangs out in the dark corner-cases of the web.

Dear Adobe,

Opening PDFs inside the browser is clearly too hard for you to do reliably, so it's time to turn off the default setting for "Display PDF in browser".

IE7 and Firefox2 released

IE7

Firefox2

Recommendation: Firefox. First, IE has made excellent progress, but after five years of stagnation it still comes off as "Firefox Lite". Second, too many people still use MSIE than is healthy for the Internet; monoculture (any system that has very low diversity) is dangerous from a security perspective. Hopefully we will eventually see an even split between IE, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.
