Sausage would've been easier...

I had to devote a ridiculous amount of time to it, but I managed to figure out how to include hyperlinks in that last post.


Yea, me.

Anyway, it was a messy business. I may try Mozilla's FireFox browser, as I think that includes to clickable tool for hyperlinking in the Blogger interface toolbar. I might include links more often if I didn't have to parse the code to do it.

And I wonder if there's a way to make the links open in a new window...

First welcome back to the world of blogging (says the guy that doesn't have a blog :)

Second, doesn't Blogger allow you to build hyperlinks in its interface, regardless of what browser you use (says the guy that actually has a Blogger account but doesn't use it).

If he's using Safari (or an older browser) on a Mac, some of the GUI type tools to build posts may not work.

I would highly recommend Firefox...

Come to think of it, I hear that the Flock browser has built-in tools to support blogging. Might be worth a checkout as well.

Oh, and Firefox 3 is supposedly going to support blogging tools when it comes out. Still, you'll never go wrong with Firefox.

I think Drew's blog does the "new window" thing. I'm sure he'll chime in soon.

And Eric, say hi to your sisters for me!

Yeah, I'm using Safari.
Much as I like it, I may add Firefox to my software arsenal. I'll have to experiment and see how customizable the Firefox interface is; part of what I like about Safari is that the application's window is so clean. And the keyboard and keyboard/mouse shortcuts are great.
Still, as long as it supports tabbed browsing, I can get used to anything. Is it true that MS Explorer still doesn't have tabbed browsing? I can't imagine not having anymore.

Hey -- if I switch to Firefox, will I have to think in Russian?

No, you won't need Russian..

FF is pretty dang cool... especially with some of the plugins which are really useful to do web development.

The only thing I prefer about Safari is the way it handles RSS news feeds, which have become a necessity for me these days. There are some plugins for FF to replace its RSS solution, but I don't like those either.

IE 7 on PC supports tabs...
