It's official. Firefox has removed support for < blink > as of v.23.

Cool! I think v.23 was also the same version they added h.264 support as well, meaning that we no longer have to make WebM videos for Mozilla browsers to support native HTML5 playback

Are there Windows users that prefer Firefox to Chrome, or is the Firefox marketshare largely from when people jumped ship away from IE?

The fact that you can do this in Javascript was probably a large part of rationalizing taking this out of the spec and eventually Firefox, but I would be amused to come across some dude that is angry that he can't make his stuff blink anymore via HTML

IME, shaky Intranet websites mainly made for IE work much better in FF than in Chrome. It was also easier to block Flash in it for a long time, and you get <video> to work with H.264. These days I'm just still using it at work because I'm too lazy to switch that setup.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

I use Firefox in all OSes except Android. The biggest reason is because some of the extensions I frequently use do not have adequate analogues in Chrome. If it weren't for that, I'd probably switch to Chrome, mostly because Firefox shits itself a lot due to the number of tabs I nearly always have open...
