The Curse of jwz Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Many moons ago, a man named jwz wrote the Unix version of Netscape Navigator. For unknown reasons, he, in his infinite wisdom, decided that Preferences should go under Edit.
Despite almost two decades, a corporate buyout, an open sourcing, 15 major versions, the triumph of Linux over Unix, and most importantly, thousands of add-ons, all of which place their configuration settings under the Tools menu...
the Preferences menu item has stayed in the place jwz prepared for it.
Today, that curse is lifted!
Wow, thanks. I really could not have said it better. I don't particularly have a problem with Edit > Preferences myself, but for those who do, this is just the sort of thing I would hope for.
