But but but.
It works for the 'standard' browsers, i.e. Netscape and IE. For a web
designer to attempt to explicitly support anything else (i.e. by
taking the time to test it) is difficult if not impossible to justify
to whoever's paying the bills. Plus, complaining that site foo crashes
a beta browser is bad karma in general. It's a browser fault. That's
why it's beta. Nothing on a web site should /ever/ be able to make a
Criticism where it's due, you know?
`F' is group reply. This is because `G' is for sort and `g' is for get new
mail. And `G' is for sort because `sort' used be called `group', and anyway
`S' is for save mailbox and `s' is for file message in folder, because `f' is
group reply and `F' is group reply including original text.
