Death to the CAPS LOCK key...

I want to publicly support this long overdue effort. I can't remember the last time the CAPS LOCK key did something useful for me. I hit it inadvertantly many times a day, but I can't remember ever hitting it on purpose except when I am in the act of disabling it after an accidental activation.

Learn more about this effort at the CAPSoff blog, or join the discussion at the Google Group.

isn't there a firefox extension that turns it off?

There are lots of ways to get rid of the CAPS LOCK key. I don't know if a Firefox extension would do me much good as I am usually in a word processor, email, or spreadsheet when it happens. One way to do this if you are running Windows XP is to use Microsoft's remapkey.exe. In fact, that is what I just did to my computer.

I remapped my keyboard to display a left-handed Dvorak layout so that I could dial and write as I type.
