As an avid geocacher[1], I like to be aware whenever there's geocaches
near a place I'm going to visit. This usually is a tedious process, but
GEO + Web Services could make it omnipresent in my Web experience.

On the topic of Operator, version 0.6.1 isn't working for me at all in
Firefox X. Anyone else having this problem? I even
double-checked it on the ocono.com page used in the demo screenshot.
