Over on SiliconBeat, Mike Bazeley writes about Yahoo! PhotoMail:
We do have a big gripe, though. The service requires users to download a small application to upload the photos, and Yahoo is relying on the ActiveX functionality of Internet Explorer for its upload software. That means the feature is limited to Windows IE users. Many of us stopped using IE in favor of Firefox long ago, and I doubt many will turn back to IE just to email photos to friends and family. Andy Spillane, VP of Yahoo Mail, says the company is exploring using XUL to build a Firefox version of the software.
I'll be over in the corner, gently smacking my head against a wall...
In related news, Spread Firefox shows the latest download number just below 60,000,000.
