            You forgot to mention that its a Mozilla plugin
            Its not so obvious from the project summary on the main
            page, and I bet most people would miss the ambigous
            references to mozilla in the Trove Categories.

            You know - some of us use other browsers then Mozilla.
            BTW - Konqueror has a validator plugin as well. it doesn't
            have that many features - it is limited to a single validator
            configuration (which you can change using a GUI, of
            course) but you can also validate CSS.

            Checky for Internet Explorer?
            I think this tool should be available for all browser. Do you plan a release for MSIE?

            Opera Shortcut CTRL + ALT + V
            Think about changing the Checky-Agent shortcut from F10 to CTRL + ALT + V.

            Perfect tool for quick web page validation!
            I'm waiting for the upload feature to test local files. Cool tool, thanks ;-)
