I would pay to turn off the marquee animation (and notify the user) on metaltoad.com if their battery life is too low.

Another IE first was the Z-Index as opposed to the Layers solution that was championed by Netscape. Remember that browser?

I'd just like to point out that I had already taken back my foosball champion title by the time of this recording. And it looks like I shall remain champion until such time as Joaquin brings back the table (or gets an upgrade). :-)

For quick PHP debugging (and any any other web-language), in a browser that has a console:

function lookat($obj){
   print '<script>console.log(' . json_encode($obj) . ');</script>';
}

webgrind and xhprof and it's brother XHGUI are pretty nice, too.
