The popular web browser is finally getting its due in a big way! Independent film-maker blogs are abuzz with the rumor that a deal is close to being signed...

uh, no, just kidding.

Cast your memory all the way back to 1982. Yes, there was a movie called "Firefox", starring Clint Eastwood (who also directed and produced), and based on the novel of the same name by Craig Thomas. And check the poster!

This is just screaming for a web-browser mashup, next time I have Gimp open.

I was researching Atari games and stumbled on the video game based on the film, which was Atari's only laser-disc arcade game. That jogged my memory; I actually played this! I must have been all of 13 at the time. True to the review, I do recall that the graphics and features blew me away, but the game play itself wasn't anything special, as it is a very plain target-shooter. Never saw the movie, though.

Just thought I'd jolt your synapses with that one.
