I know it works for 32bit Firefox/Linux. And, I'm tempted to say it works for 64bit Firefox/Linux too. Other than that, you're talking about a /very/ small percentage of perl *developers* -- not end users of the modules: I make my stuff on 32-bit Linux, and people often install on BSD/AIX boxes. ANNO Cpan is old, its adoption rate is evidence that it is not a good solution.

    Do you have any data to support your statement that it's a very small percentage we're talking about?

    Since most Perl developers I know work on some unixish systems, I'm not inclined to simply believe that.

    You're apparently ignorant of the ever-increasing use of Mac OSX by the Perl community. And no, this doesn't work with Safari either, my preferred browser.

    When there's a cross-browser solution, propose it. Until then, dead in the water, please.
