Re: New feature in Pages - Image Gallery

Another interesting discovery regarding Image Gallery in Keynote is that each photo object is a "build", so photos can be advanced automatically and/or with different actions. (see first screenshot).

Re: Why Firefox, Ray?

Several issues caused the switch: First, many times I would find that a website would not load, but just "hang" ... however, it would load once I did a "reload". Annoying.
