My Most Productive Day of the Week Is..
"Sunday" is currently last.
Do we expect it to surge ahead tomorrow, or drop further behind?
HTC Android Smartphone Stores Browsing Screenshots
Opera Mobile has exactly the same feature of displaying a thumbnail of a bookmarked page, however it *reloads* the page to generate the thumbnail immediately after it is bookmarked.
The first time this happened I was puzzled about why it didnt just resize the existing on-screen rendering. The privacy advantages are significant, if not obvious.

Which satnav system doesnt support an optional 2D map?
