That still requires scrolling over it, I can't just look at the title and click, I have to go over each. Anything that slows down my use is a bit frustrating.

I suppose there is the alternative in Firefox in that I can go to the Window menu and switch windows that way ...

wonkette calls them Paultards.

I've been in awe/disgust over how positive all the comments on this site are - if it's a hippy it's "right on man, stick it to the man," if it's a gun it's "looks like a good one, have fun" and if it's an overseas vacation it's "haha have fun." Clearly moderated to a disgusting level. Which makes the Paultard discussion in the comments even weirder.
Holy shit. I love the people arguing that buying 41 copies of the book is better than donating to charity, because it will "wake up" 41 people. Oh, yeah, like being told some political ideology - even if it's the best ideology in history - is even half as good as putting food on your family's table tonight.

that is the same speed if you are used to going to a bar and selecting a window from a drop up/down menu. Even if I have 15 windows or more open, the alt-tab option allows me to get to the window I want in a matter of milliseconds on a PC, and there is no equivalent on the mac.

Axver, go on, depress the alt key and hit tab a few times and see if you like that shortcut more than anythign since tabbed browsing. (although it was around quite a long time before tabbed browsing)

Just tried ALT+TAB. It's good, but not as quick for me due to the unconventional way I know the keyboard. It's still quicker to go via taskbar menus.

I've never been one for keyboard shortcuts myself. Mainly because I don't know the ALT key too well, so it slows me down. Should probably work on that.

Especially, it seems, Ron Paul supporters. Almost all of his fans I've encountered online have had one screw loose.

Hey y'all.

Is it weird that the sole reason I like drinking blue Kool Aid is that it looks like drain cleaner?

Hey DOL. Thanks; the scaling didn't completely destroy the pic like it usually does.
