Bryan,

Thanks for the update and for making this a priority.

With my instructions to the participants not to use Chrome, last evening's
Mapathon was success, and no one reported any iD related issues (actually
there were no OSM related technical issues at all).  I often get a number
of positive comments about the OSM technology, including iD, at an event,
and yesterday was no different.

Mike
