Beating the bounds, you may recall, is the practice used by many English villages of walking the perimeter of their land to identify any fences or hedges that had encroached upon their shared wealth.

In our times, beating the bounds may initially involve direct action resistance and civil disobedience against enclosures, and attempts to "de-enclose" them.

  • Damn, after refreshing my Firefox profile, I see that Omnibear no longer exists in the Firefox plugin repo and seems to be a bit abandoned. I think you can just download it and install locally. But if it's abandoned, maybe time to look for something different.
