Here's the challenge: can anyone make a Joy Button that works with Safari? I for one liked this in Explorer (even if I had to empty the cache to get it refreshed), and wouldn't mind seeing it again now that I use Safari 99% of the time. Don't tell me it's impossible - you are geeks; let me hear you roar!

Whoa there...Safari is not Open Source. The WebCore by which Safari renders web pages, is open source, as it uses the KHTML rendering engine. What is is that this JoyButton did, again? I know I saw it awhile back, but I've since forgotten (and yes, I know about Google, but I'm on my to dinner right now).

Edit: I even thought about this back when I first wrote this: are you saying, "given Safari's 'available' source code...", or "if 'we were' given Safari's source code...". My comment would address the former, not the latter. The latter is a pipe dream.

Sorry, I of course meant it as far as "if I had the source code", since it would be reallly easy to add as a toolbar option.
