Middle finger to the blog community

Aside from the faster rendering, nicer design and less pervasive install, I'm finding that one of the most useful features my new browser of choice has is the 'middle-click to open a link in a new tab' function. I can now browse the daily blog reads in the sidebar by middle-clicking each in turn, then browse through all the open tabs, reading/closing as necessary - much easier than opening and closing a Favourites bar, or 'right-click-open-in-new-window' IE approach.

Of course, I could delve into the wonders of RSS and save myself checking all those that are updated once in a blue moon - maybe I'll add that to the list of things to do when I get this site truly up and running.

In the spirit of witty dual meanings in blog headings, here's a link to an article over at whitespace on the lack of catfights within the design/blog community. Well, sort of - and he's got a point, but if you fancy yourself as a pretender to the Web Standards throne, it's never going to be a smart career move to point out the faults of your [perceived] betters.

Unless of course you think you've coined a smart-ass phrase for doing just that... ;o)
