Firefox experiment at reference desk

As an experiment, I've set up one of the Firefox browsers at the reference desk (on the PC in the rear across from the spiral staircase) so that when you open up a Firefox window or click the home button on the browser toolbar in Firefox, you get two tabs to open automatically:
  • the front tab is the library's home page
  • the back tab (it's not visible unless to click to get that tab) is the reference blog
Just want to see if anyone finds this useful, annoying, not an issue, etc. Please comment.

I think this is a good idea. The Reference Blog is a data source in its own right. I often turn to it for suggestions, particularly when I get stumped. Having it open in a 2nd tab could serve as a useful reminder that it's there and ready to go.
