Oblivious to the fact that their market share was disappearing faster than donuts in the break room, the Mozilla Project programmers repeatedly abandoned real-world progress and accomplishments for - and this is the technical term - cool shit.

Re:Forum suggestion and the logout button.

well... the only secure way to do that at all is to store your password in a cookie, and I don't want to do that because of how insecure it is. (note that any other method of auto-login is even more insecure).

However, because of the sheer number of requets for the feature, I'll think about it.

The logout button is primarily used if your on a public computer and you login, it lets your session be terminated instantly so someone else can't sit down and use your username/password without logging back in.

It also has the user of if you have a friend over and both of you want to post from onl one browser. Azriel was here last night, and we were both using it. Logout, login as Azriel, let him post. Logout, log back in as Tridus, so I can post.

etc.

Your right in that its a rarely used feature, but a very important one nontheless.
