The Type Ahead Find

Is anybody else using the newest version of Mozilla?
I installed 1.2a last week, thinking that I’d play with it a little here and there, but it’s quickly replaced galeon as my browser of choice. Now, don’t get me wrong. Galeon is a fine browser. It’s a fine browser, Stuart, does lots of spiffy things, but it doesn’t have the type ahead find, Stuart.
You know that Jonny Wurster kid, the kid that does the backend for that other website? He’s a foreign kid. Some of the neighbors say he smokes crack, but I don’t believe it.
Anyway, for his tenth birthday, all he wanted was a Burrow Owl. Kept bugging his old man. “Dad, get me a burrow owl. I’ll never ask for anything else as long as I live.” So the guy breaks down and buys him a burrow owl.
Anyway, 10:30, the other night, I go out in my yard, and there’s the Wurster kid, looking up in the tree. I say, “What are you looking for?” He says “I’m looking for my burrow owl.”
I say, “Jumping Jesus on a Pogo Stick! Everybody knows the burrow owl lives. In a hole. In the ground. Why the hell do you think they call it a burrow owl, anyway?” Now Stuart, do you
think a kid like that is going to know about the type ahead find?
You know what, Stuart? I like you. You’re not like the other people, here on the Internet.

  1. Sorry if this has already been said, but… you know, since Galeon and Mozilla are both based on the Gecko engine, you can (or will soon be able to) use type ahead find in all Gecko browsers, including Galeon.

  2. You and I must have been a part of the Jungian collective unconscious that day. I had “Stuart” going through my head all day on the 18th after I listened to the song in the car just before arriving at work. I didn’t read your post until days later. Freaky!

  4. Oh how I love to sleep in vomit. You don’t know the joy I get from it. The Dead Milkmen Rule all!! Wil I like you. You’re not like the other people here in the trailer park.
