    Wait a dog garn minute, let me get this straight...

    I'm going to be able to slack off from my virtual life (and say, read slashdot) while I'm slacking off from my real life playing Second Life?

    Okay, and meanwhile, in Darfur...

    Please can I have a simple web browser which blocks pop ups, ads and doesn't allow in spyware and other junk.

    Why the lack of ambition?

    Your virtual character can have a web browser that attaches not to a virtual server, but an actual one. The Second Life server.

    If you have sufficient karma, you will be able to use your web browser to find out what virtual person sent you the spam/created the pop-up/whatever, and obliterate their existence. It'd be like have root access to God's server.

    Or like a web browser thats integrated into the underlying OS that also acts as a help file renderer and file manager. I can't believe that no one has ever thought of this before! You know what would be totally cool? Having a bar along the side of your web browser that could go out and get headlines from your favorite news sources. Damn I'm brilliant, I'm going to be rich.

    Or even better, a real life client application that runs inside the embedded Firefox browser. Then you could escape your humdrun SecondLife by escaping into a new (and possibly different) real life.

    What would be better is if they create a client for Second Life that runs in a web browser. I think you can see where I'm going with this...
