    Anyone using firefox 3 type about:robots in your address bar and hit enter.
    What's that all about and why add it to an overbloated browser anyway?

    This is called "easteregg", a joke from a developer that can only be seen if you know how to make it visible ;)

    It's just supposed to be a joke for developers. If I spent all my time developing something I would want to add a personal touch too. It adds maybe a few kilobytes to the application at most out of many, many megabytes.
