Well I'll go on the record as niether a firefox user OR gnome  (chrome/ium
& xfce), and to be honest, what tv station or other sporting event for that
matter doesn't do the same ? So its okay there ? because I pay for a ticket
to watch a show/game, besides defaults are there for functionality OOB NOT
the gospel lordy...
