Re^6: Deprecate target attribute in <a> tag (Firefox cache)

in thread Deprecate target attribute in <a> tag

Off-topic FYI:

For instance, it drives me batty that FireFox makes a separate request when I want to view source.

I've read that the next version of Firefox will not make a separate request for viewing source, as it tries to rely on the cache much more than it does now (also producing a speed-up in using the Back and Forward buttons).

    Thanks for the info.

    I really believe FireFox's current behavior (current as of 1.0.6 anyway) should be considered broken. If I want to view the source, then it would seem obvious I'm interested in the source of the page I'm looking at rather than the source of a page I haven't requested yet!
