Why? I missed that somewhere... Anyway, browser vendors are not going to
allow "true" chromeless windows (i.e. without any features that identify
them as a browser window and allow a user to identify the URL), spec or
no spec. If, for some reason I didn't catch, that also implies that
modal dialogs (which I still believe to be a Very Bad Idea That Has No
Place On The Web) are impossible then we should just consider both ideas
dead and cut down the amount of mail people have to wade through.

things that were just ridiculous, and believed them so strongly that you would
have gotten in terrible trouble for saying otherwise."
