    lots of versions of Firefox are now out
    but not British-English, which is stuck at 1.0.7

    excuse me while I moan and whinge

    moan, whinge, moan, whinge, rant, complain, whinge, moan

    thank you for that
    normal service will now resume
    ( when we find out what is "normal" anyway )

    Just click the download button. What's downloaded is en-us.

    As I understand it, en-gb is due out in a second run of localizations,
    hopefully before the end of this week, though don't quote me on it. ;)

    American English is a lot different to British English.

  5. American English is a lot different to British English.
    Sure is. When they use "color" or "honor" I have no idea what they are
    on about. "Faucet", "Diaper"? Help !!!

    Indeed there was a blocker bug that still needed to be fixed in en-GB,
    due out soon.

    The one that gets me is the Bonnet and Boot on a car. Here in Canada
    and the US we refer to them as the Hood and the Trunk.

    I refuse to use a language in which it is acceptable and normal
    for men to wear "suspenders"...

  9. I think this is really funny. My native language
    is Dutch and I live in The Netherlands, but I
    don't mind to read US-English or UK-English. To
    me it's almost the same ;)

    We think it is a source of fun as well. We enjoy taking stripes off each
    other in good natured banter. Actually, Brits love US & Canadian folk
    and tolerate their bad use of our language!
    ps we also love the Dutch because they speak perfect English (saves us
    having to learn Dutch!).

    Neen, but it is a general laugh between linguists that the Dutch (and
    Flemish) think they speak English very well (and I am wagering my words
    here, because I am one of them), but they make a lot of typical
    word-to-word translation errors. Steenkolenengels, we call it (coal
    English, refering to the early days of the European Union).
