Mitch Graw has posted a Thunderbird extension called Reloadchromezilla, which adds a "Reload Chrome" option to the Thunderbird context menus and toolbar.

Looks like John Coleman didn't like it because it contained a "swear word". A swear word in an open source Mozilla add-on? Seems like the guy could have simply modified the code rather than giving a 0 star rating for a free, open source, useful tool.

It looks like Mitch's extension doesn't just add "Reload Chrome" to the context menu, but "Reload Chrome, Dammit!". Hahaha. I think its kinda funny.

Cripes, all this "keep it clean for the Kids (or overly sensitive/religious people)" is getting a tad ANNOYING! Come on people, sillyness is as sillyness does... It's just a word. It's not a knee to the groin, or spit in the face, or even a 2x4 across the back. Or as the old saying goes, "Sticks and Stones may break my bones, But words shall never hurt me.".
it's downright pathetic if you can't handle bad words. Get over it and move on, the rest of us have more important things in life to worry about than that kind of sillyness.
