comment Is it possible to upgrade from (Ubuntu) Jaunty to Karmic Koala without reinstalling everything?
It's difficult to say whether you will have to reinstall manually build software. However, you won't loose your configurations because they ought to sit in your home directory that the upgrade process won't touch.

Although wget and curl may not be called "browsers", IE on WinXP usually does.

Ah! I guess I never really understood that buffers aren't local to tabs. I always thought (without thinking really much) that each tab has its own buffer list.

I'm not sure what you mean. I use the shell to start vim like described above and then I have a running vim.

Well, I hope you will get a warning. If you don't, report it as a bug in your browser ;-)
