Where is that documented?  What else have I missed?

It didn't work for me.  Is that a recent change?  I'm running os852 which has 
Sugar 0.84.16.

I get the last instance of Browse that I had saved, the same thing I get 
without the Alt key down.  But if I wait a few seconds with the cursor over 
the globe, it first gives me a pop-up with "Browse" and the name of the most 
recent instance, and after a few more seconds, it gives me a bigger popup 
showing all the saved names and a slot at the bottom saying "Start".

Is there a way to get out of Browse without saving anything?  Auto-save saves 
the the current URL on top of the old name.  That gets me out quickly, but if 
I've clicked around like I normally do, that probably breaks the name/URL 
binding I had setup.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
