on the .de link, it works like google maps:

* you can zoom in and out with just the mouse wheel (doesnt work with control) and
* it will zoom into wherever the mouse pointer is
Makes it easier to find the interesting bits without killing your wrist with all that click and drag :)

That would definitely be a godsend -- as the clicking is killing me (arthritis) -- but is this a FF only thing?? The lower map frame doesn't show up for me in IE.

weird - it's totally different in IE.
In FF, it just shows the whole image with a +/- button to zoom (and as said above works like google maps).

The actual comic link ( shows here in IE8 but click and drag keeps dragging, even when you let the mouse button up - which means it goes over and back, and over and back, and...

Stoic Joker:
Guess I'll be installing FF on something then.

Thanks Tomos

Fred Nerd:

There is something very Cricket/Wizard of Op about this thing.  :-*
