Firefox 23 nixes support for outdated blink HTML tag

Watch out, Web site owners: all of that blinking might need to go away soon.

Mozilla announced on Tuesday that Firefox 23, the latest version of its browser, will not support the HTML tag blink. The blink HTML tag allows Web site owners to make text start blinking. It was popular in the 1990s, but thankfully fell out of favor years ago after the world decided it was extremely, extremely annoying.

What next, they'll block out use of comic sans or some other thing that doesn't do anything but please people with too much free time who worry about nothing?

Call me when they actually so something noteworthy, like make the browser take up less RAM and CPU to run(using 500 MB RAM on average with it, that's excessive)) or they actually fix that bug which switches you back to the first window if you use multiple windows- a bug they more than know about but won't work on.

Yes I use Firefox, because if I want a proper Adblock and NoScript experience, I have no choice.

I personally don't like blinks all over the place. I seen some avatars that do the blinking thing. I can't even read the post without getting a headache so I don't.
The blinks remind me of infections. Blink blink; tick here you won a free trip to Detroit.

There's a nifty extension called Remove It Permanently (RIP) that allows you to zap away blinks and other junk. I use it in conjunction with AdBlock to clean things up.
