Comcast DNS Redirection Launched In Trial Markets

AT&T doesn't touch my bandwidth. They don't cap it, they don't filter it - they aren't keeping a database of my URL lookups.

While I doubt that's true even today, it's only a matter of time before they implement bandwidth caps. I don't think any major ISP is not at least trying them out. AT&T started trials last November. http://gizmodo.com/5075831/att-monthly-bandwidth-caps-are-here

Firefox 3.2 Plans Include Natural Language, Themes

op12 Re:Map 10 Downing Street (285 comments)

True, you get Google's top result and you can also use Firefox's keywords feature to create search shortcuts of your own. But Ubiquity is more powerful. You can highlight a page of Craigslist results and use the map command and it will actually extract addresses from the detail pages of each result and map all of them. It can do translation of a webpage while you're on it, do syntax highlighting on code snippets, etc.

That said I still don't think it needs to be integrated in the browser and I don't see the problem with keeping it as an extension.

On a related note, the article isn't quite explicit, but the lightweight theming is provided by another Mozilla Labs extension that's available today called Personas.
