I was messing around with yahoo.com and Firefox's User Agent Switcher (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59) plug-in (Firefox tells the website you are browsing it is a different OS and browser than it is, e.g. IE in Vista). When Firefox is pretending to be IE in Windows Vista, and you click "Make Y! your home page", it sends you to this link (http://www.yahoo.com/bin/set?y&ocs=0), with 3 steps to make yahoo your home page. You have to open something, type something, and do some clicks.
When Firefox is "itself", and you click that same thing ("Make Y! your home page"), a little notification-like thing pops up. All you have to do is drag a picture to the home icon, and click yes! That's only 2 steps, and no typing!
You rock Firefox, and IE, your going down! ;)

Lol.

All mainstream browsers are easy to use.

How long do you think it will take for Microsoft to copy this idea?
Actually, how long do you think it will take to actually work after they copy this idea? ;)
