A recent check-in adds the needed ability to open links from either a webpage or from an external application in a new tab instead of in a new window.</p> <p>I can finally feel good about not working on the <a href="/project/tabprefs/">Tabbrowser Preferences extension</a>. I had hoped this functionality would be added eventually anyway.</p> Sat, 2 Oct 2004 13:08:59 -0500 Preaching security to banks http://www.intraplanar.net/node/13 <p>I feel somewhat lucky in that my bank supports, to some extent, browsers other than MSIE. My one complaint is that printing in any other browser sucks.</p> <p>There is a "print" feature offered following transactions (e.g., bill payments, transfers) that prints a nice transaction report. Attempting to use this feature in <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/">Mozilla Firefox</a> or any other Mozilla browser may cause it to hang or at best simply leave you with a bad print job in your print spooler. Printing the entire webpage works of course, but I end up with a lot of garbage on multiple pages which I would prefer to avoid. Because of this small issue I usually just switch to IE for my online banking. No More!</p> Mon, 30 Aug 2004 21:13:31 -0500
