TechCrunch's missing post

Today Marshall Kirkpatrick posted good review of Firefox 2.0 beta on TechCrunch. You can see the post as it appeared in my feedreader here.

However when I tried to leave a comment I was given a 404. Clicking the post title gives the same result.

Any ideas why? It seemed a fair review, free of the hype that typically surrounds Firefox.

My comment would've been this: with the addition of tab drag'n'drop in 1.5, and the ability to re-open closed tabs in 2.0, Firefox is creeping towards what Opera already offers in terms of features - however Opera has no system-destroying memory leak! Neither does it crash after a long period of usage.

The one big failing of Opera was poor support for AJAX rich web applications (e.g. it couldn't open Google Calendar or 30Boxes). Opera 9 has vastly improved in this area, and I've yet to find an web app it fails on. If you haven't tried Opera, I highly recommend you do - you might like what you find!
