I am getting an HTTP 500 error for the /favicon.ico file. Not a huge deal, just thought I would report it.

On that subject, I've noticed that the favicon is the Bluehost default. Shouldn't we come up with a cool icon for FW? Unfortunately, the MF SLR that is the forum's logo up there in the top left probably won't reduce very well, favicons need to be very simple. Do we have any designers here?

I was using Opera for years and must say it's always been one of the better browsers out there. Blazing fast and very full featured. Maybe I should give it a try once more... I'm starting to find Firefox a bit heavy on my clunker.

For me, the only reason to have Chrome on my computer is Google's CloudPrint app. It's pretty neat to be able to print directly from my phone wirelessly... though the results are somewhat random.

Ok, I tried firing up the forum in Firefox and it did indeed give me the right favicon. Chrome, sadly, does not. I use Chrome over FF because it's much less bloaty in my experience, and it synchs up with any computer or phone (I have an Android phone) that I sign into. I often have urges to visit a page that I visited a few days ago, and using Chrome's history I can find that page no matter what computer or device I originally saw it on :) Yes, I've drunk the Google Kool-aide (Googlaide?), and lots of it :) At least it's not the Apple juice that I drank ;)
