Yeah I guess cookies probably won't fly well around here... I've seen plenty of systems like this that allow unregistered users to vote, but they probably use cookies.

I guess my only other idea would be to add an open ID login system so most people could easily log in without creating another account.

I personally think it would be a really good idea to allow voting on instant answers without being signed in. I think the site would get more input if this was possible. Several times when I've visited the site I was going to vote for an idea, and realizing I was not signed in lazily abandoned the idea... I know it's lazy, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Also people who have just visited the site for the first time are not likely to create an account unless they have a more significant contribution to make.

btw, I do agree that the prompt is annoying. It's definitely less annoying than Google's prompts to upgrade to Chrome which are much less subtle than this.

Firefox dropped Google for search results because of the fact that they did not want their main source of income to be their top competitor, and promoting Google search in Firefox undoubtedly also promoted Chrome.

Yahoo! is now the default search engine in Firefox, and because of this they benefit from Firefox becoming a more popular browser.

I was going to look into this but I can't seem to find the Wikipedia instant answer. Is it under a different name, or maybe not an open source instant answer?

Also it would be nice if the answer used superscript since "a2" is a different thing than "a to the second power."
