v37 released yesterday, Tony, I just didn't get around to posting about it until this morn. More here. Think maybe it's getting more bloated, maybe I'll have another look at Pale Moon or Vivaldi.

Suspect more people here don't use Firefox than do. I still like the add-ons available. Many work with Pale Moon. I think Vivaldi is a Chromium spin-off, like Google Chrome.

Greek air traffic controllers call for radar system upgrade

Greece's air traffic controllers' union is calling for an urgent upgrade of the country's air traffic radar system and for more staff to be hired to handle increasing number of tourist arrivals.

The country's air traffic control system was operating with diminishing staff and a main radar system dating from 1999 that has only been upgraded once, in 2008, union head Spyros Rolakis said Wednesday.

Last year, 550 Greek air traffic controllers handled 678,000 flights, Rolakis said, compared to 707 controllers handling 411,000 flights in 2002.

Don't think it would be as good as a real sheepdog.  And "One Man and his Drone" doesn't have the same ring to it!
