Submission + - 6000 year old tomb complex discovered 2

duh P3rf3ss3r writes: National Geographic reports that a 6000 year old tomb complex on 200 hectares (500 acres) has been discovered on the Salisbury Plain just 24 km (15 miles) from Stonehenge.

The site, fully 1000 years older than Stonehenge, has been called "Britain's oldest architecture".

I'd really like to not care about the name of the browser I'm using, but the mental cost of switching could be high for someone used to particular Firefox extensions, unless or until they can all be expected to work seamlessly with Chrome.
