Jan 2nd 2010 3:41AM The cogent reasoning for NoScript distrust is what?

AND IF

ads were NEVER content interstitial


then maybe

Is Google Voice going to be the next Skype? (Download Squad)

Jan 2nd 2010 3:00AM ALL google calls are THREE PARTY calls unlike skype.

Google calls you.
Google calls other number.
Google bridges together those two legs.
