Hmm... I'm not sure, but I think the "Read More..." dealie completely fucks up netscape 4.7. Something is making my friends page unreadable, anyway. Not only do you have to scroll over to read text, but some text seems to disappear between line breaks.

Or maybe it was just dorm's entry about compiling glibc.


[addendum] No, it's not "read more". Just a coincidence, I guess. Not that I particularly like that feature anyway.

You're on crack. I'm using netscape 4.7 (actually 4.72) and not only does "Read More..." not fuck anything up, but your friends page is readable.

I think netscape got worse between 4.72 and 4.77.

90% of people will probably stop using it within the next 3 days, anyway. Although some of the news-type journals may continue to use it, I hope that most regular journals just start posting long entries again soon.

I just wanted to try it out in my journal once. :P

A feature is coming to disable ever seeing them, if you so choose. (so long as you're logged in so LJ can know your preference)

I plan to use it for stuff that I figure most people don't want to read (like my rants).

And perhaps you should get a browser with much less inherent brokenness.

Enh, I guess it does have its uses. Still, as an avantgo user, segmented pages automatically make me choke up bile.

A new browser? Once somebody writes one that runs on my machine, I'm all for it. It seems like every browser that doesn't have inherent brokenness more than makes up for it in inherent bloatedness. (Which includes having to download and install a new desktop environment, in my book).
