Netscape browser review

I have not downloaded this browser so I will link you to the Washington Post article
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/05/28/AR2005052800163.html.

A permalink is a link that you can use to directly link to the document in the website's database. This is specially useful when you want to save a bulletin board posting or a news site article . As time passes web managers move content around redesign sites and move pages. If you link to the page the chances are that if you go back to the link after a few months you will get a apology that the page doesn't exist. A permalink solves this problem. You can use the "permalink" to be sure that the page is accessible as long as the website database is alive.

I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
